      Agnes Sherburne died shortly after making her will, dated 3 November
      1444, more than four years after her husband's death. This will,
      referred to by Richardson, appears in TESTAMENTA EBORACENSIA Part II,
      at 105-106. Her first bequest to any family member was "to Dame
      Elizabeth Staneley, my sister, a pare of golde bedes." There followed
      specific bequests to Agnes' then living children, her eldest son
      Richard Sherburne, Jr. having died before his parents: Dame Alice
      Tempest, Robert, Isabel, Elizabeth, John, Nicholas, John, and Mabel.
      "Thomas Staneley, knyght, and Thomas Haryngton, esqwier" were named
      overseers of the will. It is more unlikely than not that "Dame
      Elizabeth Stanely my sister" would have been placed ahead of Agnes'
      children in the will had Elizabeth not also shared Agnes' bloodlines.
      James Raine (1830-1896), the editor of TESTAMENTA EBORACENSIA,
      claiming to recognize the wealth of genealogical detail contained in
      the wills, commented that they confirmed that Agnes was the daughter
      of Sir William Stanley of Hooton, thus ignoring the fact that Dame
      Elizabeth Stanley's husband was a member of the Lancashire Stanley
      family and only a cousin of the Stanleys located in Hooton, Cheshire.
      Raine's implausible interpretation seems to have discouraged others
      from examining the wills more closely and in the light of other
      contemporary records which establish that Agnes Sherburne and
      Elizabeth Stanley were true sisters and daughters of Sir Nicholas
      Harington of Farleton.

      Sir Thomas Stanley and Thomas Harington, both named as overseers in
      Agnes' will, were Agnes' nephews and first cousins to each other.
      Sir Thomas Stanley was the son of Sir John and Elizabeth (Harington)
      Stanley, and Thomas Harington was the son of Elizabeth Stanley's
      brother, Sir William Harington. See John S. Roskell"s KNIGHTS OF THE
      SHIRE FOR THE COUNTY PALATINE OF LANCASTER (1377-1460), published in
      1937 by the Chetham Society as vol. 96 (new series) of its REMAINS
      HISTORICAL AND LITERARY OF LANCASTER AND CHESTER, at 123, 127-128, and
      179.
