I may have found a theory as to the parents of Thomas Stanleythat may be interesting to some of you. The page I found says that Thomas' parents are not Edward Stanley and Elizabeth Bosville, but two people by the names of Thomas Stanley and Penelope Bradshaw. Here's what I've found:
Thomas born 1663 died 5/7/1714--Rebecca/Mary s/o Thomas born 1627--Penelope Bradshaw born 1625 s/o Thomas born 5/31/1597 died 1672--Elizabeth Pytts born 1600
Now the researcher admitted he had NOT PROVEN Thomas' parentage as of June 2004. But, I Googled a few names and found some of the names on the site www.tudorplace.com.ar and I looked up some more stuff, and that first Thomas I have listed above actually matches up with that of Sir Thomas Stanley, 1st Baronet of Alderley, and all the Baronets of Alderley for that matter. So, even though this line is not descended from Thomas Stanley(1st Earl of Derby) and the Earls of Derby, they are descended from the Third son of Thomas Stanley(the former's father) John Stanley.
