Research Notes: Husband - William de Stanley Hereditary Forester of Wirral

Lord of Stanley and Storeton, in right of his wife

From http://stanleyroots.co.uk/thenorthwest.htm:

The famous landowning Stanleys of Cheshire (descended from the Stanleys of Staffordshire) are very well documented, especially by Peter E. Stanley (The House of Stanley, 1998). For several centuries these Stanleys were the pre-eminent family in north-west England (Cheshire and Lancashire). Their links with Cheshire commenced in 1284 when William de Stanleigh (c.1250-1324) became Hereditary Forester of Wirral (a title held in the family until 1863) and lord of the manor of Storeton or Stourton. It was this William de Stanleigh who was granted the famous Stanley coat-of-arms of the three stags' heads in 1316 (see picture). It should be remembered that many other Stanleys are unrelated to the Stanleys of Staffordshire and Stourton or Hooton, and that strictly speaking, only proven descendants of William de Stanleigh should carry or display these arms today.

From The Baronetage of England by E. Kimber and R. Johnson, London, 1771, vol. 2 (courtesy of books.google.com), p. 206: "...William de Stanley, lord of Stanley and Storeton, in right of his wife Johanna, eldest daughter and coheiress of Philip de Bannvile, lord of Storeton, in Wirehall in Cheshire, by which he was also forrester of the forest of Wirehall in the said county, ann. 1317. John, his eldest son, succeeded in the lordship of Stanley and Storeton, &c."

Source: The History of the House of Stanley from the Conquest to the Death of the Right Honourable Edward, Late Earl of Derby, in 1776 by John Seacomb (Manchester, 1821) [courtesy of books.google.com], p. 228 has "WILLIAM de Stanleigh, Lord of Stanleigh, in the county of Stafford, Esq."

From http://cybergata.com/roots/743.htm :
~Cokayne's Complete Peerage, 2nd Edition, (Stanley), Vol. XIIA, p.247, Joan was living in 1326 141

~A Genalogy of the Southworths (Southards), by Samuel G. Webber (1905) [GC 929.2 So 8766w] (p. 433) She learned that her parents were determined that she should marry contrary to her inclination. While her father was at a festive banquet given him by some friends, she stole away, met William de Stanley; they rode across country to Astbey Church, where they were married in the presence of two friends. 157

~Medieval Ancestors of Robert Abell, pg. 225, has a similar story as the one mentioned in The Southworth . book. 721

~Ormerod's History of Cheshire, Stanley of Hooton Pedigree, p. 415, Joan, eldest daughter and coheir of Sir Philip de Bamville of Storeton, knight, hereditary cheif and forester of Wirral, she married at Astbury, 27 Sep 1282 and was a widown by 19-20 Edward II 713

~The History of the House of Stanley, p. 13, also names William's wife as Joanna or Jane, the eldest daughter of one of the coheris of Thomas Banville. It also says that they had two sons, William and John. 866

From Excerpts from....The Lasby Story
by Bill Lasby, Toronto, Canada.. June 18, 1969
(original is 9 typed pages)
at http://www.angelfire.com/in3/vanbrink/lasby.html

Levi, the next son, married Mary Beal of Elora. He took over the Joseph Lasby homestead. There were six children, Emily, John, James, Minnie, William and Percival. My father and mother were very great friends with this family. Levi died in 1898 and the early 1900's this family emigrated to Saskatchewan. Most of them settled around Moose Jaw, and became a very prominent family in that area. Mrs. Lasby died at the great age of 95 years and during her lifetime had entertained many prominent people including two Governor-Generals of Canada and their wives.
