Joan Stapleton

(between 1402 and 1414 - )
     Joan Stapleton was born between 1402 and 1414 in Yorkshire. She was the daughter of Sir Bryan de Stapleton and Agnes Goddard.
     Joan Stapleton married Sir William Ingleby. See Gen-Medieval for more on this line.
     Joan Stapleton made a will dated 12 October 1478. In 2003, Louise Staley wrote: Two additional pieces of information add to what I posted before on the Eure/Thwaites connections. Chris Phillips has very helpfully translated the 31 March 1478 will of the first Henry Thwaites of Lund. This will was probated on 9 September 1480 providing a new, earlier death range for the first Henry and ruling out completely that Ellen Eure could have been the mother of his children since she was not born until 1467. Henry leaves everything to his son Edmund.
The next piece of information is from the will of Joan Ingleby (nee Stapleton) from Testamenta Eboracensis Volume 3 where Joan leaves to Anne and Isabell Constable and Ellen Thwaites, daughters of Dame Ellen Constable her daughter, late wife of Sir John Constable of Halsham, knt., the sum of 500 l.
It appears that we have two unrelated people (Robert Eure and Joan Stapleton) referring to a son and daughter respectively and their
granddaughters by that child and the grandchildren are the same people.
The only sense I can make of it is :
1. Robert Eure d 3 Feb 1480 = Elizabeth Mallory
2. Robert Eure = Ellen Ingleby (she m2. Sir John Constable)
3 (a) Anne Eure b 1463 = Ralph Constable
3 (b) Isabel Eure b 1464= William Constable
3 (c) Ellen Eure b 1467 = Henry Thwaites
1. Sir William Ingleby = Joan Stapleton
2. Ellen Ingleby = Robert Eure (she m2. Sir John Constable)
3 (a) Anne Eure b 1463 = Ralph Constable
3 (b) Isabel Eure b 1464= William Constable
3 (c) Ellen Eure b 1467 = Henry Thwaites
1. John Constable = Margaret Umfreville
2. John Constable d bef 18 Mar 1477/78 = Lora Fitz Hugh (he m2 Ellen Ingleby)
3. (a) Ralph Constable = Anne Eure b 1463
3. (b) William Constable = Isabel Eure b 1464
This is directly contradictory to the Yorkshire Pedigrees view that Anne, Isabel and Ellen were daughters of John Constable and Ellen Ingleby. On the construction above, when John Constable married Ellen Ingleby as a second marriage for both of them, they then married two of John's sons to two of Ellen's daughters.
As to who was the Henry Thwaites that married Ellen Eure, it must have been Henry number 3 (a) below, son of Edmond and father of Henry d 1520. If true this has implications for the descendants of the Gresham/Neville marriage mentioned in this thread.

Sir Brian Stapleton

(1412 - 1467)
     Sir Brian Stapleton was born in 1412 in Yorkshire. He married Isabel, daughter and heiress of Thomas Rempston of Nottinghamshire. Nine years after his death his son, Brian Stapleton (b. circa 1454), married Joan Lovell, the niece and coheiress of Viscount and Baron Beaumont. (Foster, Pedigrees; Robinson, Carlton Towers, pp.10-11). He was the son of Sir Bryan de Stapleton and Agnes Goddard.
     Brian died in 1467.
