"Of Kingsley and Bryn, Lancaster, England" -------------------- Lord of the manors of Kingsley and Bryn, 1416-1431

John Gerard, of Kingsley, born ca. 1386, thirty or more at his father's death, married in 1402 to Alice Boteler (Butler) who died in 1441, daughter of Sir John Boteler (Butler) died 1400, Baron of Warrington and Alice Plumpton, daughter of Sir William de Plumpton died 1362, whose mother was Lucy (Lucia) Roos, a descendant of Robert de Roos, the son of Robert de Roos, the Surety, the 4th Baron of Hamlake Manor born 1177, died 1227, married Isabel, daughter of William the Lion, King of Scotland. John Gerard died in 1431.

Their daughter Constance married 1421-2 to Alexander Standish, eldest son of Laurence Standish and Lora Pilkington, daughter of Sir Roger Pilkington, Their son Ralph Standish, born 1424, married Margaret Radcliffe died 1476, daughter of Richard Radcliffe of Chadderton.

Sir John was a fellow knight of the shire with Sir Thomas Radcliffe, a justice of the peace and commissioner of array for West Derbyshire in 1418. In the next two parliaments three of the knights in the shire were relatives of the sheriff Sir Richard Radcliffe. The influence of the sheriffs on elections is quite evident. In 1420-1425, Sir Richard Radcliffe's son returned twice and two of his relatives once each. His successor, Sir Robert Lawrence occupied the office from 1425-1437 during which time his two sons each returned once.

A new force came to the fore in 1426 with several marriages between the Butler, Harrington and Stanley families. In each of the next two parliaments, one of the Lancashire knights was a novice, the sheriff's son returned with Sit John Byron to parliament in 1429 and William Gernet, son-in-law of Sir Thomas Gerard, and John Morley who returned for the second time in 1431. Elizabeth Gerard first married Gilbert Langton, and William Gernet was her second husband.

From 1432 to 1460, only two of the eleven persons representing the county palatine in the fourteen parliaments of that period for which returns are known were unconnected either by marriage or interest to what was called the Harrington-Stanley alliance.

Thomas Gerard, killed in the Scottish Wars 16 November 1526, was married to Dame Margery Trafford, daughter of Sir Edmund Trafford, and widow of Nicholas Longford of Longford Co. of Derby and Sir John Port of Etwall, Co. of Derby.
