  BLG1886 identifies William's wife as apparently "his second cousin once removed, Anne, dau. and co-heir of John Staveley, of Swinton, grandson of Richard Norton, of Norton Conyers". That appears to be wrong. The person with whom he was second cousin once removed was not his wife but her brother-in-law, Robert Norton of Swynton (husband of Anne's sister Catherine and grandson of Richard Norton of Norton Conyers).
