John Statham of Bleasby, Gourton (Nottinghamshire & Morley (Derbyshire) (a 1502)
m. Johnna Hastings, heiress of Bleasby (a 1525, dau of Sir William Hastings)
The Statham book contains a chart which shows Johanna's father as son of William, Lord Hastings, who was executed 1483 and also Johanna as sister of Sir Edward, father of George, 1st Earl of Huntingdon. That is not (quite) consistent with what we show on Hastings02.
