  • John STANLEY (Knight Sheriff of Anglesey)
  • Born: ABT 1386, probably Lathom, Lancashire, England
  • Died: 27 Nov 1437, Anslesey, Wales
  • Notes: Knight of the Garter. Constable of Carnarvon, Justice of Chester. Steward of Macclesfield; Lord of Man. The house of Stanley came into possession of the Island in 1406, and as it appears to us essential to give a summary account of this little kingdom from the period of their accession, we shall proceed to do so in as concise a manner as the subject demands. In the year 1493, the Earl of Salisbury, then King of the Island, sold it, with his crown and title of King, to Sir William Le Scrope. rfhe deed of sale runs thus :— "Sir William Le Scroop bought of William Montacute, Earl of Salisbury, the Isle of Man, with the title of King, and the right of being crowned with a golden crown" Sir Wm. Le Scrope, afterwards Earl of Wiltshire, was found guilty of high treason and beheaded, when Henry Percy, Earl of Northumberland, was granted the Island by King Henry IV, and he also having been attainted, was deprived of it by act of Parliament, and the Island was ordered to be seized for the King’s use; but seven years afterwards it was granted by the King to Sir John Stanley, his heirs and successors, under the title of King.
