Sir Humphrey Stafford, sheriff of Warwickshire,
Bindoff (1982), states that Humphrey was of Blatherwycke & Dodford in Northamptonshire, and that this branch of the Staffords had their, "family ... fortunes ... depleted," in the 15th century.
Foster (1891), asserted that Humphrey descends from Edward I, through the marriage of Margaret and John Stafford in c. 1341/2, which united two branches of the Stafford family during the reign of Edward III.
While Humphrey is a direct descendant of Earl Stafford, Richardson (n.d.), breaks the connection to Edward I, by asserting that John Stafford's [of Amalcote] mother-in-law was Katherine Hastang, instead of Magaret de Audeley.
