  • Notes 
    • Heiress of her father & brother in 1430.

      "The Lady Katherine (widow of Sir Myles Stapleton) survived her husband nearly five-and-twenty years. Mary Paston tells us how the widow kept her first Christmas after his death at Ingham, as her friend Lady Morley had done.
      "There were no dysgysyngs, ner harping, ner lutyng, ner synghen, ner non lowde dysports, but pleying at the tabyllys and rebesse and cards. Sweche dysports she gave her folkys leave to play and non odyr."
      The following year she married old Sir Richard Harcourt of Stanton Harcourt in Oxfordshire
      (descended from the Lords Grey of Rotherfield), being his third wife; his eldest son, Sir Christopher, having previously married her daughter. By Sir Richard, "my lady Stapylton" (for she kept her first husband's name) had one son, William Harcourt.
      Sir Richard died 1 Oct 1487, and his wife survived him only a few months, if her will and codicil
      were proved 23 Jan 1488. It was not however till after Sir William Calthorpe's death that the Escheator held his Court at Thetford (4 Nov 1494), when the Jury found her seised of the manors of Ingham, Waxham, Lammas, and Westhall, all in Norfolk, held by her in freehold(ut de libo tenemento) under the late Sir Brian's entail, and her two daughters are declared to be her heirs, Elizabeth now 50 years old, and Joan, two years younger than her sister."
