  General Notes:

...but the Colton manor, save for the small portion named in the previous suit, which had passed to William Wasteneys, was the property of their mother Joan, who had taken a second husband, Sir John de Gresley. It was no unusual practice, Genl. Wrottesley states, to convey an estate for life to a wife, for it saved the waste and destruction caused by the sale of the custody to the highest bidder, as was frequently done in the case of a minority; whilst in troubled times it was a precaution, very possibly, against immediate forfeiture. The valuable series of Gresley Charters, recently edited by Mr. Jeayes (B.M.), establish this marriage by a lease of John de Gresley, Kt., and dame Joan his wife, to Nicholas de Gresley, "son of the said John," of lands at Norton, to hold to Nicholas and Thomasine his wife, begotten of the said Joan (1364 A.D. - 38 Ed. 3) (French). Besides approximately dating the latter marriage, this deed clearly establishes the former, of which, though previously convinced, we needed proof. An Ingestre charter (v. appendix) shows that it had taken place not later than 1352 A.D.
