Hello all! Help me find the father (mother if lucky) of Eleanor Stapleton. She is supposed to be the first wife of Thomas Wharton, 1st Baron Wharton ... and the daughter of Sir Bryan Stapleton of Wighill. But there are quite a few men carrying this name, and the sources I've seen are slim pickings. Been searching for over a year now... want to give up... please help!

Maybe not the best source, but a starting point I hope: https://books.google.be/books?id=hLRBAAAAcAAJ&pg=PA60

Have you seen this site http://www.thepeerage.com/index.htm ?  I am not sure how far he goes back, but a really neat site of British Peerage and European Aristocracy. I have gone back to the 1700's trying to ascertain an ancestor..
