There was presumably an estate at STANLEY in the late 12th century when there was mention of Adam of Stanley. (fn. 81) There was certainly an estate there c. 1200 when Adam de Audley, lord of Horton, gave Stanley to Adam of Stanley's son William. In 1272 the estate was held by Walter of Stanley, alive in 1282 but dead by 1285. His heir was his son William, who was succeeded probably in the early 1320s by his son John (d. c. 1330). John's heir was his son William, the forester of Wirral forest (Ches.). In 1359 the estate was styled a manor. (fn. 82) WILLIAM WAS SUCCEEDED IN 1360 BY HIS SON, another WILLIAM (d. 1398). HIS HEIR WAS HIS SON WILLIAM, KNIGHTED c. 1400, who took part in the rebellion of Henry Percy in 1403 but was later pardoned. SIR WILLIAM WAS SUCCEEDED IN 1428 by his grandson William Stanley (d. 1466). William's son and heir, another William, knighted c. 1484, died in 1512 and was succeeded by his son William, knighted in 1513. (fn. 83) That Sir William, alive in 1528-9, was succeeded by his son William (d. 1546). William's heir was his brother Roland, knighted in 1553. (fn. 84) Sir Roland was succeeded in 1613 by his great-grandson William Stanley, and William in 1644 or 1645 by his son William. In 1652 William leased the manor, probably as part of an arrangement which led to its sale to Thomas Fernihaugh in 1660. (fn. 85)
