  • Notes 
    • Sir Richard Stanhope of Rampton, co. Notts, was twice married. By Elizabeth, his first wife, he left issue male. His second wife was the wealthy heiress of the noble house of Cromwell, by whom he had a son and two daughters. The son, Henry Stanhope, died without issue, 31 Henry VI., leaving his two sisters coheirs to their mother's estates. Of these Joan, who appears to have been the elder sister, married Humphrey Bourchier. Maud, the younger sister, married into three illustrious houses.
      Her first husband was Robert Lord Willoughby of Eresby ; her second was Sir Thomas Neville, to whom we find her married in 1446-7; and her third was Sir Gervase Clifton of Clifton, knight. The licence for the last marriage was granted by the Archbishop of York 10th August, 1461. By none of these husbands did she leave any issue, and at her death, in the 13th of Henry VII., her estates reverted to Sir William Knyvett and William Fitzwilliam, Esq. the representatives of two of her great aunts, Elizabeth Cromwell, who had married Sir John Clifton, and Maud Cromwell, the wife of Sir William Fitzvvilliam. {from A Selection of Wills from the Registry at York Volume 2 1836 - page 40 }
