  • Note: Knight of the Garter Poisoned at a banquet or 1503 Sir George Stanley, was son and heir of Thomas, Lord Stanley, afterwards created Earl of Derby by Henry VII, out of gratitude for Thomas's timely treason at the battle of Bosworth, where he is said to have picked up the Crown and placed it on Henry's head. George Stanley's life had been up to that day in great danger, since he was held by King Richard as a hostage for his father's loyalty. In right of his wife he was summoned to Parliament as a baron during his father's lifetime, by writs directed 'Georgio Stanley de la Strange,' from November 15, 1482, to January 26, 1497. He was a privy councillor, and made Knight of the Garter in May 1487. He died, patre vivente, on December 5, 1497, at Derby House, London (on the site of the present College of Arms). His widow Joan, Baroness Strange, survived until March 20, 1514, and on her death her son Thomas, who had succeeded to the earldom of Derby ten years before, inherited his mother's baronies of Strange of Knockin and Mohun de Dunster, which thenceforth were merged in the earldom until the death of Ferdinando, the fifth earl, without male issue, on April 16, 1594; his brother, William Stanley, as heir male of the body of the grantee, succeeded to the earldom, but not to the older honours of the family, which fell into abeyance between Ferdinando's three daughters and co-heirs, among whose representatives the barony of Strange of Knockin still remains in abeyance.

  • Note: 9th Baroness Strange Joan of Knockin, 9th Baroness Strange, Joan le Strange is stated, in the inquisition on her father's death, to have been sixteen years old and more when she inherited from him the two baronies of Strange of Knockin and Mohun de Dunster; as was to be expected in the case of so great an heiress, she married shortly after her father's death, probably in 1480; at all events she was married before February 26, 1481, as the Patent Rolls of that date contain a licence for George Stanley, knight, and Joan his wife, daughter and heiress of John Lestraunge, knight, late Lord Lestraunge, to enter freely into all castles, manors, and other possessions in England, Wales, and the Marches of Wales.

Thomas Stanley

M, b. 1435, d. July 29, 1504

Parents

Family: Eleanor Neville (b. 1447, d. 1482)

Biography

  • Birth: Thomas Stanley was born in 1435 in Lathom, Lancashire, England.
  • Death: He died on July 29, 1504, at age ~69, in Lathom, Lancashire, England.
  • Note: Thomas Stanley, 1st Earl of Derby From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Thomas Stanley, 1st Earl of DerbyThomas Stanley, 1st Earl of Derby, KG (1435 - July 29, 1504), was King of the Isle of Man and an English nobleman and stepfather to King Henry VII of England. He was the son of Thomas Stanley, 1st Baron Stanley and Joan Goushill, daughter of Sir Robert Goushill and Elizabeth FitzAlan, daughter of Richard Fitzalan, 11th Earl of Arundel. After the death of his father in 1459 Stanley inherited his titles, including that of King of the Isle of Man and Baron Stanley. Stanley owned what is now Tatton Park in Cheshire. Stanley remained in favour with successive kings throughout the Wars of the Roses until his death in 1504. His marriage to Eleanor, sister of Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick, did him no harm, even after Warwick was toppled from power, and he took his second wife Margaret Beaufort, whose son, Henry Tudor, was the leading Lancastrian claimant to the throne. Thomas Stanley is also suspected for the death of the Princes in the Tower but this is unproven. [citation needed] King Richard III of England unwisely continued to trust Thomas Stanley and his brother, William, even after he had briefly imprisoned Thomas in 1483 on suspicion of conspiracy. At the Battle of Bosworth Field, the Stanleys betrayed him, coming in on the side of the Lancastrians at a crucial moment. Thomas is alleged to have retrieved Richard's lost crown from the battlefield and placed it on the head of his own stepson. In recognition, Henry created him Earl of Derby on October 27, 1485, and his fortunes continued to flourish. His brother, William, made the mistake of supporting the pretender Perkin Warbeck, and was executed for treason in 1495. Descendants of Thomas Stanley and Eleanor (or Alainor) Neville included George Stanley, Edward Stanley, and James Stanley, all of whom were also descended from the same Beauforts and John of Gaunt as the step-son who became King Henry.

  • Note: Knight of the Garter Lord Lieutenant of Ireland He was Lord Deputy of Ireland in 1385, and had a grant of the manor of Blake Castle in that kingdom. In 1405 had a commission with Roger Leke to seize on the City of York, and also upon the Isle of Man, and in 7th of Henry IV, being then Treasurer of the household to the king, obtained license to fortify his house at Liverpool, which had newly been built with embattled walls. In the same year, having taken possession of the Isle of Man, he obtained a grant in fee of the Isle, Castle and pile, anciently called Holm Town, and all the isles adjacent. On accession of Henry V he was made Knight of the Garter and made Lord Lieutenant of Ireland for six years, in which government he died in 1444. They had four sons and four daughters. (Kin of Mellcene Thurman Smith, page 166)

    He invested on the accession of Henry V, and was Lord Deputy of Ireland in 1385, and had a grant of the Manor of Blake Castle in that kingdom. In 1405 he had a commission to seize the City of York and its liberties, and also upon the Isle of Man, on the forfeiture of Henry Percy, Earl of Northumberland, and in 7th of Henry IV, being then Treasurer of the Household to the King, he obtained license to fortify his house at Liverpool, which he had newly built, with embattled walls, and in the same year, having taken possession of the Isle of Man and all the islands adjacent, he obtained a grant in fee of the said Isle. He was a cool, shrewd and efficient man, who, in the literal sense of the word, flourished in the reigns of Richard II and Henrys IV and V (they reigned from 1377-1413), and his personal qualities raised him to distinction, and the properties he acquired in right of his marriage gave him great territorial influence in Lancashire and elsewhere. In 1405 he was granted the tenure of the Isle of Man under the title of King by Henry IV, which had been confiscated from the rebellious Henry Percy, 1st Earl of Northumberland.

    Sir John Stanley, King and Lord of Man and the Isles (c.1350 - 1414), the first of that name, was Lord Lieutenant of Ireland and titular King of the Isle of Man. In 1405 he was granted the tenure of the Isle of Man under the title of King by Henry IV, which had been confiscated from the rebellious Henry Percy, 1st Earl of Northumberland.

William De Stanley

M, b. circa 1250, d. 1311

Parents

Family: Joan De Baumvile (b. 1261, d. 1326)

Biography

  • Birth: William De Stanley was born circa 1250 in Hooton, Cheshire, England.
  • Marriage: He and Joan De Baumvile were married on September 27, 1282 in Astbury, Chestershire, England.
  • Death: William De Stanley died in 1311 in Stanley, Wiltshire, England.
  • Note: Sir William Stanley, who gave an impetus to the family fortunes by one of those matrimonial alliances to which the House of Stanley owes much of its prosperity. He took unto himself a wife in the person of Joan, the youthful daughter and co-heir of Sir Philip Bamville and his wife Agnes, daughter and co-heiress of Alexander Sylvester, Lord of Stourton in Cheshire. And thereby hangs a romance, for associated with this match is a love story that, in its romantic incidents, is scarcely less interesting than the one related of the fair heiress of Haddon Hall, Dorothy Vernon. The daughter of the House of Stourton had given her heart to young William Stanley, and to escape the forced marriage with her stepmother's son, she determined to elope. While a banquet was being given by her father, she stole away unobserved and, being joined by William Stanley, rode swiftly across the country to Astbury, where, in the presence of Adam Hooton and Daues Coupland, the anxious lovers plighted their troth, Sept. 27, 1282. This story is no mere legend, for the facts are to be found in the musty and unromantic records--the Cheshire inquisitions which have been unearthed and their contents made accessible to the world by the Deputy-Keeper of the Public Records. By this marriage William Stanley became owner of one-third of the Manor of Stourton (the remaining two-thirds he subsequently acquired) and also the hereditary Bailiwick or Chief Rangership of the Forest of Wirral, which overspread the peninsula lying between the estuaries of the Mersey and the Dee. After this marriage the Stanleys migrated from the Stonylea in Staffordshire to their newly acquired home in Cheshire, and at the same time Sir William Stanley, in allusion to his office of heriditary Forester of Wirral, assumed the arms that have ever since been borne by his descendants in the first quarter of their shield as the paternal coat of Stanley, instead of those used by his ancestors, viz.: Argent on a bend azure, three bucks' heads caboshed or; in other words, over a shield of silver a belt of blue crossed diagonally, with three bucks' heads displayed thereon with a stag's head and neck for a crest.
