Edward Blount, 2nd Baron Mountjoy
Edward Blount, 2nd Baron Mountjoy (1464–12 October 1475) was an English peer.
Edward Blount was born in 1464 in London, the second son of Sir William Blount (c.1442-1471) and Margaret de Echyngham. He inherited his title on the death of his grandfather Walter Blount, 1st Baron Mountjoy in 1474 after his father Sir William Blount had been killed in 1471 at the Battle of Barnet during the Wars of the Roses and his elder brother had died young in 1462. He was betrothed to Anne Cobham, the under-aged heiress daughter of Thomas Cobham, but the marriage was not consummated.
