    Youngest son.
    In Stansfield Chapel, Burnley, there is a stone believed to be the tombstone of Oliver de Stansfield, Constable of Pontefract Castle. He owned land at Heasandford and died in 1340.
    On a pedigree of the Stansfields of Burnley, of which Oliver was the founder, he is said to have
    survived to 23 Edward III (1349-50). It seems very obvious from the notional annual rent of only one penny in the 1292 grant of Worsthorne (He also held nearby Heasanford, where he resided, on the same terms) that it must have been a reward for his work as Constable of Pontefract Castle, a very demanding and responsible office.
    Heysandforth was acquired by Oliver de Stansfield, who also obtained from Henry de Lacy a grant of the manor of Worsthorne, and in 1311 Oliver held 50 acres in Burnley by rendering 1d. yearly, the rent having been altered.
