      • There is some confusion over this and the next generation. Ormerod shows this Sir William as possibly first married to Mary Savage before being married to Alice Houghton, with uncertainty as to who was mother of his children, with his son/successor being the Sir William who married Agnes Grosvenor. We are following 'The House of Stanley' (which appeared to have considered Ormerod's work and expanded on it) & Visitation which both show 2 different generations although this does raise some concern regarding the age when this William's son William is shown as having had children of his own. As indicated above, we may revise this in due course. It is noted that some web sites show this William as having married Alice Houghton and his son as having married a Savage.
