William of Alditheley

M, b. 1082

Parents

Family: Joan Stanley (b. circa 1095)

Biography

  • Birth: William of Alditheley was born in 1082 in Hooton, Cheshire, England.
  • Note: William de Alditheley married Joan, daughter and sole heir of Thomas de Stonleigh or Stoneley, a kinsman of Sir Henry de Stonley, whose daughter married William's cousin Adam. As her dowry she received the Manor of Thalck, better known as Talk or Talk-of-the-Hill, in the same county. This William seems to have conceived a liking for Stonleigh, before referred to, for he gave his Manor of Talk to his cousin Adam for Stoneley and half of Balterly and made Stoneley his family residence and seat, and as the old chroniclers tell us, in honor of his wife and the great antiquity of her family--of noble Saxon descent who flourished many years before the Conquest--he assumed the surname of Stoneley or Stanley. He became the immediate founder of the Stanleys, a race associated with the most stirring events in English history and which at the present day comprehends, in addition to the baronetcy enjoyed by the elder line of Stanley, many offshoot (Kin of Mellcene Thurman Smith, page 1011-1012)

    William de Alditheley married Joan, daughter of Thomas de Stoneley, a kinsman of Sir Henry, and received with her as a dowry the manor of Thalk, in the same county. Afterwards he exchanged this estate with his cousin Adam for Stoneley and half of Balterley, and made Stoneley his family residence; and in honor of his lady, and the great antiquity of her family, of noble Saxon descent, who flourished many years before the conquest, he assumed the surname of STANLEY, and became the recognized founder of the Stanley family. This was in the reign of Henry I., A.D. 1100-1135. (The Stanley Families, page 9.)

  • Note: Adam de Alditheley, who came to England with Duke William, had large possessions from the conquered lands as his reward for his services. He had sons Lydulph and Adam.

    Among the Norman knights who accompanied William the Bastard into England in 1066, were Adam de Alditheley and his two sons, Lydulph and Adam. These received, as did others of William's associates, large possessions from the conquered lands as a reward for their services. Lydulph, the elder son, had a son Adam, and Adam, the younger, had a son William. These two young Normans, Adam and William, both married wives of the Saxon family De Stoneley. (The Stanley Families, page viii)

    The Stanley family was descended from Adam de Aldithley who accompanied William the Conqueror to England. One of his descendants married an heiress whose marriage portion included Stoneley, Derbyshire - hence the name Stanley. (Wikipedia.)
