Pg 205 Chap 2, 20. Thomas de Stanley, Lord Stanley; Chief Justice of Chester; Privy Councilor and Steward of the Household to Edward IV and Richard III 1471-85 (age ca 36-50); one of only 35 peers present at the Coronation of Richard III 7-6-1483 (age ca 48); K.G. 1483; Constable of England for life 12-16-1483 (age ca 48) with a fee of £100 a year granted by Richard III, whose cause he skillfully betrayed at Bosworth Field 8-22-1485 (age ca 50), where he is said to have set Richard's crown on the head of the victorious Henry VII; created Earl of Derby 10-27-1485 (age ca 50)14765

Pg 50377046 Sir Thomas Stanley, 2nd baron, summoned to parliament, from 30 Jul 1460 to 9 Dec 1483. This nobleman, who was steward of the household to King Edward IV, stood faithful to the interests of his son, Edward V, and incurred, in consequence, the jealousy of the Protector Gloucester, from the moment that daring parsonage contemplated seizing upon the government. Lord Stanley was at the council, when Lord Hastings was arrested by order of the Protector, and then very narrowly escaped with his life, having received a violent blow on the head from a halbert. He was afterwards committed to prison, when the Protector threw off the mask, and usurped the crown as Richard III, but was released, lest his son, George, Lord Strange, should stir up the people to revolt. To ensure his support, the new monarch loaded his lordship with honors; constituting him lord steward of the household, constable of England for life, investing him with the Garter, & c; but his having married for his 2nd wife Margaret Tudor, Countess of Richmond, and mother of Richard’s rival, Henry, Earl of Richmond, made him still an object of distrust to Richard. So soon, therefore, as Richard was apprised of the Earl of Richmond’s arrival in Britanny, and his projects regarding the English scepter, Lord Stanley was commanded to discharge all his servants, and strictly prohibited holding any communication with his stepson. Subsequently he obtained permission to retire into the country, but was obliged to leave his son and heir, George, Lord Strange, as hostage. This young nobleman, Richard afterwards threatened to put to death, should his father appear in arms on the part of Richmond, but the menace failed in keeping Lord Stanley from the field, who distinguished himself as one of the most active commanders at Bosworth, and when victory at length declared for Lancaster, had the high honor of crowning upon the field of battle, his son-in-law and chief, and proclaiming him King of England, under the title of Henry VII. His lordship was soon afterwards created Earl of Derby, and sworn of the privy council.
He d: in 1504, and from that period the Barony of Stanley merged in the Earldom of Derby, until the decease of Ferdinando Stanley, 5th Earl of Derby, and 6th Baron Stanley, 16 Apr 1594, when it fell into abeyance, together with the Barony of Strange, of Knokyn, amongst that nobleman’s three daus. & co-heirs, viz.
Anne Marr1: Grey Bruges, Lord Chandos, & Marr2: Mervin, Earl of Castlehaven
Frances Marr: Sir John Egerton, afterwards Earl of Bridgewater. Of this marriage the co-heirs are the Earl of Jersey & the Duke of Sutherland
Elizabeth Marr: Henry, Earl of Huntingdon: the co-heirs of whom are the Earl of Loudon, and his aunts, the daus of the 2nd Marquess of Hastings.
