George Stanley, 9th Baron Strange

George Stanley, 9th Baron Strange, of Knockyn, KG, KB (1460-1503) was an English nobleman and heir of Thomas Stanley, 1st Earl of Derby. Despite predeceasing his father in 1503, he was nevertheless a considerable soldier and aristocrat in his own right and held a number of senior offices of state.

He was born about 1460 in Knowsley, Lancashire, England, the eldest son of Thomas Stanley and his first wife Eleanor, sister of Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick. On his father's second marriage to Lady Margaret Beaufort, Countess of Richmond he became stepbrother to her son, Henry Tudor, later King Henry VII.

He was invested as a Knight of the Order of the Bath in 1475 by King Edward IV. He held the offices of Constable of Pontefract Castle and Constable of Knaresborough Castle in 1485. He was present at the battle of Bosworth Field, but was held captive by Richard III because of his father's actions. He held the office of Constable of Wicklow Castle in 1486 and became Chief Justice of the Duchy of Lancaster in 1486. In 1487 he was invested with the Order of the Garter and made a Privy Counsellor.

He was married in 1482 to Joan le Strange, 9th Baroness Strange (c. 1460 - 1514), daughter of John le Strange, 8th Baron Strange (c. 1440 - 1477) and Jacquetta Woodville (daughter of Richard Woodville, 1st Earl Rivers and Jacquetta of Luxembourg), thereby becoming 9th Baron Strange de jure uxoris (in the right of his wife) and was summoned to Parliament in this role. Their children were:

John Stanley (d. 1503)
Thomas Stanley, 2nd Earl of Derby (1485-1521)
James Stanley, Knight (1486-1562), who founded the branch of the family known as the 'Stanleys of Bickerstaffe', from which the 11th Earl of Derby and all subsequent Earls descend
George Stanley
Jane Stanley
Elizabeth Stanley
Margaret Stanley

He died in Derby House, St Paul's Wharf, London over 4-5 December 1503, allegedly of poison following a banquet. He was buried in the London church of St James Garlickhythe nearby.

Wikipedia has the following report on George's father.

Thomas Stanley, 2nd Earl of Derby

Thomas Stanley, 2nd Earl of Derby (1485- 23 May 1521) was an English peer.

Derby was the eldest son of George Stanley (jure uxoris 9th Baron Strange) and Joan Strange, 9th Baroness Strange and 5th Baroness Mohun. Thomas Stanley, 1st Earl of Derby was his grandfather. His father had been summoned to Parliament as Lord Strange in 1482 in right of his wife, but predeceased his father. Derby succeeded his grandfather in the earldom and barony of Stanley in 1504, and in 1514, he also inherited the baronies of Strange and Mohun from his mother.

He married Anne Hastings-daughter of Edward Hastings, 2nd Baron Hastings-in about 1507. Lord Derby died in May 1521 and was succeeded in his titles by his son Edward. His line of the Stanley family failed on the death of James Stanley, 10th Earl of Derby in 1736, when the earldom passed on to a descendant of his younger brother, Sir James Stanley, who founded the branch of the family known as the "Stanleys of Bickerstaffe."

There were additional Stanley children which I do not show here. Note that for George's death date the Le Strange Website reports his father's death date of 23 May 1521.
