Notes: The "Wealth of Northamptonshire Families" says that William Stanley, 3rd Baron Mounteagle, married Anne Spencer as his first wife and died in 1581 without issue. However, he had a daughter Elizabeth who was the mother of William Parker, 4th Baron Mounteagle, and Spink says that Elizabeth's mother was Anne Leybourne. The Monteagle interest in Somerset and Devon accrued from the 2nd Lord’s marriage to Mary Brandon. On 12 Dec 1553 Henry and Frances Grey, Duke and Duchess of Suffolk, Lady Margaret Clifford (later wife of the 4th Earl of Derby), and Sir William Stanley had licence as coheirs to enter upon the lands of Henry Brandon, Duke of Suffolk; the greater part of Stanley’s share seems to have lain in Lincolnshire but there were properties, including advowsons, scattered throughout the country. On 20 Jun 1561, as Lord Mounteagle, he had livery of his father’s lands. Soon afterwards, and mainly in May 1563, Mounteagle and his wife received a large number of licences to alienate property, chiefly in Lincolnshire. Most of these licences related to the Suffolk inheritance but Mounteagle also disposed of part of his patrimony. He had begun to do so before his father’s death and apparently without his consent: this may explain why he is not mentioned in the father’s will.
