It was in the third week of February 1495, either the 10th or the 16th that William Stanley was executed for siding with pretender Perkin Warbeck.
Here's a statement to stimulate your 'little grey cells' this morning.
"William Stanley served the House of York - as he conceived it to be - all his life. That he may have been wrong in his conception of that House in 1485, and in 1493-95, should not change our awareness of that. The judgment of so many against William, that he was at one with Thomas in treachery, turncoating, and betrayal, is mistaken. He may not be owed much honor, but he does not deserve dishonor."
