    • I am speculating that Joan married William Stapelton after 1475 because of an entry in the 'Memorials of the Church of St. Peter and Wilfrid', Ripon:
      "Gyvendale, dnae. Johannae Warde seniori, 12d." The only Johannae Warde senior in Givendale in 1475 would be the widow of Sir Roger, 'Joan'.
