Through the Edward I line, Margaret Stanley is a direct decendent and blood line of the House of Mercia, House of Wessex, House of Normandy, and the House of Plantagenet (Angevin). (King Edward I, Elizabeth of Rhuddlan countess of Hereford, William de Bohn 1st earl of Hereford, Elizabeth de Bohn countess of Arunder, Elizabeth FitzAlen duchess of Norfolk, Joan Goushill baroness of Stanley, Margaret Stanley countess of Sussex).

__________________

  • Henry Grey, 4th (7th) Baron Grey of Codnor (1435–1496) was an English nobleman. Having initially supported the House of Lancaster he later gave his allegiance to Edward IV.[1] Despite a record of controversy and feuding he seems to have enjoyed the confidence of the King, who appointed him Lord Deputy of Ireland, an office in which he was not a success. He retained the favour of both Richard III and Henry VII, both of whom made him grants of land.
  • He was the only son of Henry Grey, 3rd (6th) Baron, and Margaret Percy, who later remarried Sir Richard Vere, younger son of John de Vere, 12th Earl of Oxford.[2] He was only nine when his father died. In 1461 he fought for Henry VI at the Second Battle of St. Albans; but after the Yorkist victory at the Battle of Towton he was rapidly pardoned, as part of Edward IV's effort to secure widespread support among the nobility.[3]
  • He was one of the principal magnates in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, and like many nobles of the time, prepared to assert his power .... etc.
  • Grey died in April 1496. His first marriage to Katherine Strangways, daughter of Sir Thomas Strangways by Katherine Neville, Duchess of Norfolk was childless, but he did have two natural sons, Richard and Henry, for whom he made generous provision in his will.
  • After Katherine's death he remarried Margaret ( probably Margaret Stanley, daughter of Thomas Stanley, 1st Baron Stanley) and then Katherine Stourton, daughter of William Stourton, 2nd Baron Stourton;[11] both marriages were childless. After Grey's death, Katherine, who received substantial property under his will, quickly remarried Edward IV's nephew William de la Pole; but as a potential Yorkist pretender to the Crown, William was soon imprisoned in the Tower of London and remained their till his death. Katherine died in 1521.
  • As he had no legitimate heir, the barony fell into abeyance between his father's three sisters.[12] It was finally called out of abeyance in 1989.
  • He is said to have been keenly interested in alchemy, and obtained a licence from the King for the transmutation of metals, on condition that he must inform the Crown if he succeeded in producing gold.[13]
