  • Notes 
    • 2nd son of Thomas Stanley; of Holt; knight; supporter of Henry Tudor at Bosworth Field 1485; DNB. Beheaded in the Perkin Warbeck conspiracy. Holt is in Denbighshire about ten miles due south of Chester. He was the richest man in England, which may have caused a rapacious King Henry VII to have schemed his destruction.
