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.
