Gleanings from the Common Pleas: Margaret Grey (died c.1504), wife of Edward Stafford, KB, Earl of Wiltshire, and of Henry Stafford, KG, Earl of Wiltshire
by Nathan W Murphy, Douglas Richardson and Matthew Tompkins
This article confirms an old genealogical conclusion using new documents. Complete Peerage doubted the conclusion that Margaret Grey married two earls of Wiltshire. Recently published apostolic penitentiary records include a 1501 marriage dispensation issued to Henry Stafordi to marry the widow Margareta Staffordi alias W[i]ltshire alias de Lisle. The marriage is confirmed in a recently-indexed common pleas case.
