    "This John Stanley in right of his wife became the owner of the manor of Weever and the lands in Over and Nether Alderley, &c. He is mentioned in 1461 and 1476, in which he is called "John Stanley, Esquire, brother of Thomas, Lord Stanley," but was certainly dead before 1485, when his widow had remarried. He is called a knight in the old pedigrees, but this is incorrect, and the confusion has probably arisen between him and his contemporary, Sir John Stanley, Knt., of Elford."
