  • Sir William the son of the aforefaid Sir William, was the ninth heir male of this honourable house, and succeeded his father in honour and estate ; and the fourth of Henry VI. he married Margery the daughter of Sir John Ardern of Hardin, by whom he had issue two sons, William and John.
  • Sir William, father of the said William and John, by Mrs. Ardern, was the first that removed from the old seat o£ Stanley in the county of Stafford, to Hooton, in the hundred of Wirral and county of Chester, who, for the enlargement and conveniency of his House, and better accommodation of his family, obtained licence from King Henry VI. to build a turret or tower at his seat of Hooton, with embattled walls.
  • Which House and tower are now standing, to which Sir William, the elder brother of John succeeded, and was the tenth heir male of his family ; and the seventeenth of Henry VI. he married to Alice the daughter of Richard Houghton (as I conceive of Lancashire) and by her had issue a son named William.
  • Sir William, the son of the above William by Mrs. Houghton, succeeded his father Sir William, and was the eleventh male heir in a direct line ; he married to one of the daughters of John Savage of Clifton, Esq. and by her had issue two sons, John and William. I cannot discover that John the elder was ever married, but rather that he died young and without issue : But,
  • Sir William, the second son of the above Sir William by Mrs. Savage, succeeded his father as twelfth heir male of his family. He was stiled senior, and married to his first; wife, Margaret the daughter of John Bromley, Esq. by whom he had a daughter, who married to Gerrard of Brinn, in the county of Lancaster ; and Margaret his wife dying, he married to his second wife Agnes, the daughter of Robert Grosvenor of Hulme, Esq. by whom he had a son named William.
