  • Notes 
    • Hanged without trial after allying with Henry Tudor in an unsucessful attempt to overthrow King Richard III. After Henry Tudor succeeded in his next attempt, and became King Henry VII, the Stafford family was denounced and harassed by the new regime, as they had already been under the old. Henry Stafford figures as a character in Shakespeare's Richard III.
