Ralph De VERNON (Rector of Hanwell)

Born: ABT 1221

Died: 1270

Notes: Rector of Hanwell, quietly set aside his vow of celibacy and made a match of it with Cecilia Crew (Lysons says there was no marriage certificate), and became the father of a son, who has given to the pedigree of the Shipbroke branch of his race that air of mystery and delicacy usually spoken of with incredulity and whisper. But it appears there was a buxom widow, Maud Grosvenor, by whom he also had issue. This Ralph wrested barony from his nieces, becoming de jure Baron of Shipbrook (magnate, not member of peerage).

Ralph De VERNON (B. Vernon of Shipbrook)

Born: ABT 1241, Shipbrook, Cheshire, England?

Died: AFT Jul 1325

Notes: became the seventh Baron and perhaps the most fantastic of all Vernons. According to all official English records, he lived until 1392, aged 150 years. If this fact bears out, he may well have been the oldest 'liver' in recorded history, until a few years ago when the Russians came up with a man 162 years old. Married twice and outlived most of his many great-grandchildren. He also added the 'maiden proper' on the crest of the coat-of-arms, holding a scythe in her hand and sheaves of wheat in her arm. In 1403 his grandson by his youngest son, Sir Richard the 8th Baron, was beheaded following the Battle of Shrewsbury (he was the Sir Richard Vernon made famous by Shakespeare in one of his plays), the baronage then fell to Sir Ralph 'the Younger' of Hanwell, a great-grandson of 'The Old Liver's oldest son, Sir Ralph. He died without male issue and, in 1404, it went to Sir James of Lostock and Haslington, who became the 10th Baron.

Notes: Hawise and Gilbert Fraunceys had a son who took the estates of his mother and the Vernon name. Some sources claim that Hawise received the Haddon and Harleston estates due to the banishment of her brothers, and that the Vernons of the 'fretty (fret), sable' descended through her son Richard (Fraunceys). It is possible that the Haddon and Harleston estates were granted by Sir William, Chief Justice, to his half-brother Robert. There seemed some litigation between Richard, son of Hawise, and Sir Richard (wife Juliana de Vesey), grandson of Sir William, Chief Justice, during the mid-1300's. All were of the fretty (fret) sable.

He commanded a company of perhaps the first archers (Welsh) to be used in the Norman wars, and was later a travelling judge with County Geoffrey Plantagenet in Normandy, representing King Henry II. Sir William, Chief Justice, protected the estates and interests of his half-brother, Robert de Vernon, whose two sons, Richard and Robert, were banished for taking the wrong sides in the English-Norman wars. He also arranged the marriage of Robert's daughter to his own son, Richard.

Margaret VERNON

Born: 1540

Died: 1596

Notes: Sir George Vernon died without male heirs, so the estates were divided between his two daughters. Margaret, the eldest, married Sir Thomas Stanley, second son of Edward Stanley, third Earl of Derby. The other daughter was the famous Dorothy Vernon who married Sir John Manners. On the death of Lady Margaret in 1596, the manors of Marple and Wybersley came into the possession of her eldest son, Sir Edward Stanley of Tonge. The last of the feudal lords, Sir Edward, having no male heirs sold off the manors in question in 1606. The date of the original house on the Marple Hall site is uncertain, it was probably built by the Vernons of Haddon Hall during the reign of Henry VII. 3 Aug 1578, Margaret Vernon and William Mather granted a lease to George Lort for the manor of Stackpole and other lands held by him in Pembrokeshire.
