  Research Notes:

From Ancestral Roots, line 57-34 (Isabel de Lathom):
"[Sir John Stanley, K.G. was] son of William Stanley, of Storeton in Wirral., d. 1360, said to have mar. Alice Massey, dau. of Hugh Massey of Timperley (but there is no proof of marr.)."
From, quoting Cokayne's Complete Peerage, (Stanley), 247, "He is said to have married Alicia Massey, daughter of Hugh Massey of Timperley, but there is no real evidence to back this."

From The History of the House of Stanley from the Conquest to the Death of the Right Honourable Edward, Late Earl of Derby, in 1776, p. 14,
"Sir William, the son of John, and seventh heir male of this spreading house, is styled William de Stanley, senior, Lord of Stanley and Stourton. The twenty-sixth of King Edward III. [1353?] he married Mary the daughter of Hugh Massey, of Timperley, in the county of Chester, and sister to Sir Hamon Massey, of Dunham Massey, by whom he had issue two sons, William and John."

Were Mary and Alice the same person??
