Joan Stanley is in a trail badged by the Magna Carta Project to surety baron Saher de Quincy (see text below).



Birth and Parents

Jane, or Joan, was the daughter of Sir William Stanley, K.G. It is not certain which of her father's wives was her mother.[1][2] She was born say 1472.[2]

Marriage and Children

In 1487 Jane married John Warburton, Knt., of Arley and Warburton, Cheshire, son and heir of Peter Warburton, Esq, and Ellen Savage.[2] They had at least six children:

John Warburton died shortly before 19 October 1523.[2] After his death Jane was deprived of her dower rights when John Warburton's mistress Sibyl Starky withheld land deeds.[2]


Jane's death date is uncertain, but was clearly after 1523. She is likely to have died in Cheshire, where her husband had lands.

Research Notes


Ormerod's History of Cheshire says there were two other children - an unnamed son and an unnamed daughter.[3]

WikiTree has previously shown three other people as children of Jane Stanley and John Warburton: Elizabeth, Agnes Ann and William. All three profiles are effectively unsourced. No good source has so far been found for the relationships, and they have been detached. Cayley-55 10:22, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

Magna Carta Project

This profile was reviewed for the Magna Carta project by Michael Cayley on 12 July 2020.
Jane (Stanley) Warburton does not appear in a Magna Carta trail in Douglas Richardson's 2011 Magna Carta Ancestry but Richardson has established subsequently that she is descended from Thomas Stanley and hence from Magna Carta Surety Baron Saher de Quincy, and is on a trail to Gateway Ancestor Margaret Domville. See Richardson's post in this thread in soc.genealogy.medieval. She will also be descended from other Surety Barons. This trail was developed in June/July 2020 by Michael Cayley and badged 16 Jul 2020 by Thiessen-117. Details of this trail are in the Magna Carta Trails section of Margaret Domville's profile.
See Base Camp for more information about identified Magna Carta trails and their status. See the project's glossary for project-specific terms, such as a "badged trail".

I have now finished the main work I intend on Jane's profile. If anyone spots any typos etc, please either correct them or message me - thanks!

I have transferred some information relating to her parents to their profiles, which I plan to edit in due course. Before I do that, I intend to do a little work on Jane's husband and children.

Because of the history of attaching children for whom there is no good evidence, and because of inaccuracies in unsourced trees on the web, I have added Project Protection.

Jane is on a prospective new Magna Carta Project trail from Gateway Ancestor Margaret Domville to Surety Baron Saher de Quincy. In accordance with Magna Carta Project and WikiTree policies, I have adopted the profile on behalf of the Magna Carta Project and added the Project as one of the profile managers. I have added a Magna Carta Project section to the profile.
