Volume 12, part 2, page 553:
His widow [Edith, the widow of Ralph Neville, styled Lord Neville (d. 1498)] m., between 15 July 1499 and 4 Mar. 1499/1500,(b) as his 2nd wife, Thomas (DARCY), LORD DARCY (of Darcy or of Temple Hurst), who was beheaded on Tower Hill, 30 June 1537, ...
Note b:
Probably before 7 Dec. 1499 (Cal. Close Rolls, 1485-1500, nos. 1157, 1192; cf. Nicolas, Privy Purse Expenses of Elizabeth of York, p. 2; Plumpton Corres., Camden Soc., pp. 196-97.

Edith's remarriage to Thomas Darcy does seem to have taken place by 7 December 15 Henry VII [1499], as she is described as his wife in a deed of that date [Catalogue of Ancient Deeds, volume 3, page 227].
