Lineagre. — The Stanixts rank amongst the most ancient
and influential families in the kingdom. They were of conse-
■quence, says Camden, half a century before the Conquest, and
they have invariably held a prominent place in history. The
branch of which we are more immediately about to treat has
been located in the North for several centuries, and the most
ancient of their estates in Cumberland have descended through
an unbroken succession of father and son, over a period of not
less than five himdred years to the present proprietor.

and Stourton, and younger brother of Sir William Stanley,

by deed dated anno 1345. In 1388, Nicholas Stanleigh
-obtained by purchase the manor and demesne of Ponsonby.
He was s. by his son,
