"Support for the identification of all the other wives of the Stanley men of
Hooton can be found in the Ryland Charters housed in the John Rylands
Library at Manchester University, at least as far back as the 1376 agreement for
the marriage of William de Stanley and Margery de Hoton and as late as the 1514
agreement for the marriage of William Stanley and Grace Griffith."
