    "Thomas Stanley, who thus succeeded to his mother's lands in 1512, married, for his first wife, Douce, daughter of Thomas Liversage, of Wheelock, co. Chester; and in 1522, by a long document enrolled on the Cheshire Plea Rolls for that year, he made a settlement of his various estates, and in it mentions his second wife, Elizabeth, his younger sons, Ralph, John, Richard and William, and his son and heir-apparent, Thomas Stanley and Joan his wife. He made his will on the 8 Jul, 1525, desiring to be buried in his chapel in Middlewich church, and died on April 10, 1526. His Inquisition post mortem, taken in that year, recites the above-named settlement, and that Thomas Stanley, his son and heir, was then 19 1/2 years of age."
