When Constance of York was born about 1375, in Kingston Russell, Dorset, England, United Kingdom, her father, Edmund of Langley 1st Duke of York, was 35 and her mother, Isabel de Castilla Duchess of York, was 21. She married Thomas Le Despencer before 1396, in England.
Sometime in the late 1390s, Edward of York married, and his choice was a most unconventional one: his new wife Philippa Mohun was many years his senior and twice a widow, and she brought him no lands, income or powerful in-laws. It must have been a love-match, though the couple were to have no children.
