    Sir Thomas Stanley, Lord-lieutenant of Ireland, Knight of the Garter, Ist Baron

    Sir Thomas was lord-lieutenant of Ireland in 1432, comptroller of the household and chamberlain to Henry VI., Knight of the Garter in 1456, etc. He married Joan Goushill, daughter of Sir Robert Goushill, by whom he had three daughters and four sons.

    As a Knight of the Shire Sir Thomas was summoned as Baron Stanley, 20 January, 1456 ( 34th Henry VI ). Joan or Jean's father was Sir Robert Goushill, Knight of Hoveringham, Notts by Elizabeth his wife ( widow of Thomas Mowbray, Duke of Norfolk ) and daughter and co-heir of Richard Fitzalim, Earl of Arundel. She was the daughter of Wilham Bohun, Earl of Northampton, Son of Hamphrey de Bohun, Earl of Hereford and Essex, by his wife the Princess Elizabeth Plantagenet, daughter of King Edward I.

    Sir Thomas's son, Sir William of Holt, was beheaded as a participator in the conspiracy for placing Perkin Warbeck upon the throne. Sir William was the richest subject in the kingdom, having no less than 40,000 marks in ready money; to which circumstances considering the rapacious disposition of Henry VII may be attributed to his destruction more than his political principles.

    Another son, Sir John Stanley, married Elizabeth, daughter and heir of Sir Thomas Weever, Knight of Weever, County Chester, and by her acquired that estate. From this Sir Stanley descended Lord Stanley of Alderley.

    Contemporaries represent Thomas as inheriting all the admirable qualities of his father and grandfather, being brave in the field of war, wise in the senate, just to his Prince, and an honour to his country.
