Meeting minutes record Anne Mauleverer to be the daughter of Edmimd and Anne (Pierson) Mauleverer, who was, it is thought, a descendant of Sir Richard Mauleverer, Knight Templar of the Norman Conquest. 
Anne's ancestry illustrates the complex intermarriages of the Neville and Percy clans.
Sir Ralph de Neville, 2nd Baron Neville of Raby, husband of Alice de Audley, was descended from Magna Carta Barons through both parents, 3 in all:
Henry de Percy, was also descended from Sureties on both sides, 6 in all:
Sir Ralph de Neville, the famous 1st Earl of Westmorland, was the grandson of those two "gateways", his mother being a Percy:
Westmorland was therefore descended from 7 Sureties by 9 lines (having two lines from Bigod senior and 2 from Quincy)
Westmorland was a supporter of Henry IV, and married the king's sister. Harry "Hotspur" de Percy, was descended from all the same ancestors, his mother being a Neville::
Note there's an extra generation on the Percy side. The effect of this is that Westmorland was 1st cousin to both Hotspur and his father.
First cousins normally have 6 grandparents between them. Double first cousins have only 4, the same as siblings. Westmorland and Hotspur were intermediate, having effectively 5 grandparents between them.
But high treason was a family affair. In spite of their political differences and genetic closeness, Hotspur's son married Westmorland's daughter. They were 2nd cousins on the Neville side and 2nd cousins once removed on the Percy side. Their children inherited all the ancestry twice over (so being descended from 7 Barons by 18 lines)
Continuing the line down to the Mauleverers, we find at least two more marriages where both partners were descended from Westmorland. In total then, she was descended from the 7 Barons by 36 lines.
Dorothy's parents were half 2nd cousins once removed.
William's parents were 4th cousins once removed (via Percy) and half 4th cousins twice removed (via Neville of Oversley).
Mary of Lancaster was a great-grand-daughter of Henry III (and also a descendant of the Bigods). Joan Beaufort was a grand-daughter of Edward III. Elizabeth Mortimer was descended from Edward III, and also from Henry III by a different route.
Elizabeth Mortimer also contributed to the Percys multiple copies of the Bigod/Clare/Quincy/Lacy bloodlines contributed by Idoine de Clifford and Eleanor de Neville.
Anne Mauleverer also appears to have at least 15 other lines of descent from Magna Carta barons, including Albini, Ros, Bohun and FitzWalter (provisional)
