  • Notes 
    • "That he was a man of considerable social standing and prestige in Northampton county is indicated by the fact that he is first mentioned in 1473 as an executor of the will of John Stafford, Earl of Wiltshire, a younger son of Humphrey Stafford, the powerful Duke of Buckingham. William Marbury married about this time into the prominent family of Blount. His wife Anne, daughter of Sir Thomas Blount and Agnes Hawley, was niece of Sir Walter Blount, Lord Mountjoy, K.G., who in 1467 had married Anne Neville, the widow of Humphrey Stafford, Duke of Buckingham. Sir Walter Blount, his wife Anne, Duchess of Buckingham, and William Marbury were co-executors of the will of Anne's son, John, Earl of Wiltshire. In the will, dated April 21, 1473, the Earl of Wiltshire made William a guardian of his only son, Edward, then age three: 'Also I will pray William Marbury to be attendaunte to my sonne and he to have rule about him.' It was William's brother, Robert, however, who attended the second Earl in the capacity of gentleman-usher for a period of twenty-five years."
