Philippa de Mohun was thrice married, and by her third husband, Edward of Norwich, 2nd Duke of York, was Duchess of York from her husband's accession to the dukedom in 1402 to his death in 1415. Philippa's birthdate is unknown. She was the third daughter of John Mohun, 2nd Baron Mohun (c.1320 – 15 September 1375), and Joan Burghersh (d. 4 October 1404), daughter of Bartholomew de Burghhersh (c.1304 – 3 August 1355), 1st Baron Burghersh, whose mother was Maud de Mortimer.
