==================================================
  • 5. John Stanley, of Weever and Over Alderley, co. Chester jure uxoris, living 29 March 1470 but d. before 1485, third son of Thomas Stanley, Knt., Lord Stanley, by Joan, daughter of Robert Goushill, Knt., of Hoveringham.[10] He m. (as her first husband) after 1445, Elizabeth de Weever, heiress of Weever, in the parish of Middlewich, co. Chester, d. 17 Feb. 1512/3.[11] She m. (2) John Done, Knt., of Utkinton.[12]
  • Jure uxoris is a Latin term that means "by right of his wife" or "in right of a wife".[1] It is commonly used to refer to a title held by a man whose wife holds it in her own right. Similarly, the husband of an heiress could become the possessor of her lands jure uxoris, "by right of [his] wife". Jure uxoris monarchs are not to be confused with kings consort, who were merely consorts of their wives, not co-rulers.

From Ormerod's The history of the county palatine and city of Chester: page 113:

Thomas de Weever married Elizabeth, daughter of .... By her he had issue Elizabeth, daughter and heiress, wife of sir John Stanley, a younger son of Thomas, the first lord Stanley, to whom king Henry VI. a° 24, gave the disposal of her in marriage as his ward; she remarried sir John Done of Utkinton.
