  • Notes 
    • The marriage of William to Joan has become one of Cheshire's legends. The story relates that Sir Phillip and his Wife Lettice, were being entertained at a banquet given at Stourton in Cheshire. A marriage had been arranged for Joan (who was her Father's heir) with the son of his Wife (who was Joan's stepmother). She had no liking for that marriage, and while the festivities were at their height, she slipped out of the Hall to where William De Stanley was waiting with saddled horses. Together they galloped to Astbury where they were wed in the Church by William's uncle, John De Stanley, William saying: "Joan, I plight thee my troth to take and hold thee as my lawful Wife until my life's end", and she replying, "I, Joan, take thee William, as my lawful Husband". In 1284, on the death of his Wife's Father, William De Stanley acquired the hereditary office of Master Forester of Wirral together with the Manor of Stourton and the bailiwick of Wirral. In 1306 and 1307, he is mentioned as Hereditary Forester of Wirral. In the year 1316, by grant of Edward II, he assumed the Armorial Bearings, viz. 'Arg, on a bend asure, three Stags Head, cabossed, Or', in place of those previously borne by his ancestors. These arms are carried by his descendants to this day.
