Lord of Stanley, Storeton, and Hooton - heir to his grandfather

http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=mjr6387&id=I180563 has b. abt 1386. Another source had b. abt 1385.

Source: The History of the House of Stanley from the Conquest to the Death of the Right Honourable Edward, Late Earl of Derby, in 1776 by John Seacomb (Manchester, 1821) [courtesy of books.google.com], p. 15, has an intervening William Stanley, between Sir William who married the daughter of John Ardern(e) and the William who married Mary Savage. To wit, "[The house and tower of Hooton] are now standing, to which Sir William, the elder brother of John, succeeded, and was the tenth heir male of his family. The seventeenth of Henry VI [1439]. he married to Alice the daughter of Richard Houghton, (as I conceive, of Lancashire,) and by her had issue a son, named William. Sir William, the son of the above William, by Mrs. Houghton, succeeded his father, and was the eleventh male heir in a direct line. He married to one of the daughters of John Savage, of Clifton, Esq."

Did this intervening generation exist? If so, what are the real dates for all these gentlemen named William??

The following citations have mightily confused the present author and need further clarification:

Source: The History of the House of Stanley from the Conquest to the Death of the Right Honourable Edward, Late Earl of Derby, in 1776 by John Seacomb (Manchester, 1821) [courtesy of books.google.com], p. 229 has "WILLIAM of Stanleigh, Knight, Lord of Stanleigh--MARGERY, the daughter of John Arden, Knight."

And from p. 15, "The seventeenth of Henry VI [1439]. he married to Alice the daughter of Richard Houghton, (as I conceive, of Lancashire,) and by her had issue a son, named William"

And from p. 15:
"Sir William, the son of the aforesaid Sir William, was the ninth heir male of this honourable house, and succeeded his father in honour and estate. The fourth of Henry VI [1426], he married Margery the daughter of Sir John Ardern, of Hardin, by whom he had issue two sons, William and John...

"Sir William, the father of the said William and John, by Mrs. Ardern, was the first that removed from the old seat of Stanley, in the county of Stafford, to Hooton, in the hundred of Wirral, and county of Chester; who, for the enlargement and conveniency of his house, and better accommodation of his family, obtained license from King Henry VI. to build a turret or tower at his seat of Hooton, with embattled walls
