Sir Fulke Greville (1536–1606) was an English gentleman.
Fulke Greville, born in 1536, was the son of Sir Fulke Greville (d. 10 November 1559) and Elizabeth Willoughby (buried 15 November 1562), grand daughter of Robert Willoughby, 2nd Baron Willoughby de Broke, the wealthiest heiress of her time. In 1553 he married Anne Neville (d.1583), the daughter of Ralph Neville, 4th Earl of Westmorland, a distant cousin. There were only two children of the marriage, a son, Fulke, and a daughter, Margaret (1561–1631/2), who married Sir Richard Verney.
He was High Sheriff of Warwickshire in 1572.
His mother survived her sisters, who had no children; by modern law, this would mean that she would have become Lady Willoughby de Broke (and Lady Latimer), and he would in turn have inherited from her as 4th Baron Willoughby de Broke and 12th Baron Latimer. But the law was established by his great-grandson, the 11th Lord Willoughby, in 1696.
On his death on 15 November 1606 at Beauchamp Court near Alcester, his estate (including any claim to the titles) passed to his eldest son, Fulke Greville, 1st Baron Brooke and 5th Baron Willoughby de Broke. After the murder of his son in 1628, they passed to his daughter Margaret, who had married Sir Richard Verney.
