It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Edmund STAFFORD (Bishop of Exeter)
Born: 1344
Died: 1419
Notes: Embracing the ecclesiastical state, Edmund obtained the degree of Doctor of Laws, and was a canon of York Minster, Rector of Clifton Campville. BET 1385 / 1393, Dean of York. BET 1389 - 1391, Lord Privy Seal. BET 1393 / 1395, Canon of Lichfield. Pope Boniface IX promoted him to the vacant see of Exeter, by his bull dated Rome, 15 Jan 1395, inserted in the beginning of the first volume of his register. He was consecrated at Lambeth by the primate William Courtenay on Sunday 20 Jun 1395, assisted by Robert De Braybroke, Bishop of London, and John Waltham, Bishop of Sarum; and, according to custom, "ratione novas creationis", the new Bishop assigned the pension of five marks to a clerk named by the crown, until he could institute him to a suitable living. As public business prevented his lordship from quitting the court, he lost no time in appointing an efficient vicar-general. King Richard II on 23 Oct 1396, nomimated him Lord Chancellor, and he continued in office until the eve of the King's abdicating the crown; he had also appointed him one of his executors (Rymer's 'Foedera,' vol. viii. p. 77). Released from the turmoils of state office, he hastened to visit his diocese. On his way hither from London we find him arrived at Salisbury on 18 Mar 1400: on 5 Apr he was domiciled at his manor-house of Bishop's Clist, and shortly after proceeded in his visitation through the counties of Devon and Cornwall. Thus he continued in the discharge of his pastoral functions until 20 Jan 1401, when he started for London; and for those times, and at that season of the year, he must have travelled expeditiously, for a document is entered in his register dated but six days later "in hospitio nostro London". King Henry IV probably wished to have his counsel: on 9 Mar that monarch restored to him the Great Seal which he retained for nearly two years, when he returned to his diocese. We meet with him at Clist on 29 Mar 1403, and two days after he held an ordination in its domestic chapel. From this period until his death he absented himself as little as possible from his diocese; and the two folio volumes of his register, comprising nearly 1400 pages, attest his diligence in administering to his affairs and the zeal he evinced for the good government of all classes; in fact none of the episcopal registers before or after him are kept in a more business-like manner. The day before his death at Clist he confirmed the election made by the chapter of John Cobthorne for their dean; and on the very day of his death at Clist 3 Sep 1419, aged 75, he instituted an incumbent of Blackauton, and collated to a prebend and canonry in his cathedral, when his registrar adds "et eodem die D. Edmundus, Exoniensis Episcopus, diem suum clausit extremum: cujus animæ propitietur Deus, Amen". The inquisition post mortem, anno sexto King Henry V, proves that he had estates in the counties of Leicester, Gloucester, Derby, Stafford, and Northampton. His will in Archbishop Chicheley's Register is dated 24 Jul 1418, and "was proved 18 Sep 1419". Leland in his 'Itinerary' (vol. iii. p. 44) has preserved the Bishop's epitaph, now illegible:

Hic jacet Edmundus De Stafforde intumulatus
Quondam profundus legum doctor reputatus
Verbis facundus, Comitum De stirpe creatus
Felix et mundus Pater hujus Pontificatûs.

John STAFFORD (Archbishop of Canterbury)
Born: ABT 1387
Died: 25 May 1452, Maidstone, Kent, England
Buried: Canterbury Cathedral
Notes: brought up at Southwick Court in Wiltshire, a moated manor house which still stands (in private ownership). His father was Sir humphrey Stafford, a 'Knight of the Shire ' (related to other branches of the Stafford family who later became Earls of devon and Dukes of Buckingham) and his mother, Lady Emma. He studied law at Oxford in 1413 and was patronised by Henry Chichele, Archbishop of Canterbury. It was only six years later that the young John Stafford was promoted to Archdeacon of Salisbury - his promotion was very rapid as this is the minimum period which must elapse before a priest can be appointed archdeacon.
Henry V appointed him Dean of the Court of Arches, Archdeacon and Chancellor of Salisbury, Dean of St. Martin's (London), Dean of Wells, Lord Privy Seal and Lord High Treasurer. It was at about this time, with the monarch falling towards insanity, that factions were aligning for that long series of conflicts which would later be know as the Wars of the Roses. Stafford was regarded as a cautious administrator and must have been a steadying influence in such troubled times. As chancellor, he was the first to be styled 'Lord Chancellor'. In 1425, Pope Martin V made him Bishop of Bath & Wells and, for seventeen years, held the office of Lord Chancellor. His political influence was employed on the side of those who desired to promote peace with France.
Archbishop Chicheley recommended Stafford to Pope Eugenius IV as his successor on the grounds of "his high intellectual and moral qualifications, the nobility of his birth, the influence of his relations and his own almost boundless hospitality". Stafford was accordingly translated to Canterbury in 1443. There was religious as well as political turmoil in the country as the Lollards, forerunners of the Reformation, were raising their voices against Pope and clergy. As Archbishop, Stafford was required to deal with the Lollards but, while he upheld the Church's position, he would not allow persecution. His mother, Lady Emma, joined him at Canterbury to become a nun at the Priory of the Holy trinity there. It was at the Priory that she died in 1446.
John Stafford died on 25May 1452 at the Archiepiscopal Palace at Maidstone, and is buried in the south choir siale of Canterbury Cathedral.

Henry STAFFORD (2° D. Buckingham)
Born: 4 Sep 1455, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, Wales
Died: 2 Nov 1483, Salisbury, Wiltshire, England
Buried:Grey Friars, Salisbury, Wiltshire, England
Notes: Knight of the Garter. Constable of England. He played a major role in Richard III's rise and fall. He is also one of the primary suspects in the disappearance (and presumed murder) of the Princes in the Tower.
His father, Humphrey, Earl Stafford, a Lancastrian, was killed at the first Battle of St Albans in 1455 when Henry was an infant, and his grandfather, the First Duke of Buckingham, another leading Lancastrian, was killed five years later, in 1460. The new Duke eventually became a ward of Queen Elizabeth Woodville, consort of Edward IV. He was recognized as Duke of Buckingham in 1465 and married the next year to the Queen's sister Catherine Woodville - she was 24, and he was 12. He never forgave Elizabeth for forcing him into that marriage, and he resented his wife and the other Woodvilles, as well. When Edward IV died in 1483, and the showdown came between the Woodvilles and Edward's brother Richard, Duke of Gloucester, over who was going to be in charge of Edward V until he came of age, Buckingham was on Richard's side at first.
Then Parliament declared Edward V illegitimate and offered Richard the throne, and he accepted it and became Richard III. After dithering between them for a short while, Buckingham started working with John Morton, Bishop of Ely, in the interests of Buckingham's second-cousin Henry Tudor and against those of King Richard, even though it meant being on the same side with his in-laws, the Woodvilles.
When Henry Tudor tried to invade England to take the throne from Richard in Oct 1483, Buckingham raised an army in Wales and started marching east to support Henry. By a combination of luck and skill, Richard put down the rebellion: Henry's ships ran into a storm and had to go back to Brittany, and Buckingham's army was greatly troubled by the same storm and deserted when Richard's forces came against them. Buckingham tried to escape in disguise but was turned in for the bounty Richard had put on his head, and he was convicted of treason and beheaded in Salisbury on 2 Nov. Following Buckingham's execution, his widow, Catherine, married Jasper Tudor, 1st Duke of Bedford.
Buckingham's motives in these events are disputed. His antipathy to Edward IV and his children probably arose from two causes. One was his dislike for their mutual Woodville in-laws, whom Edward greatly favored. Another was his interest in the Bohun estate. Buckingham had inherited a great deal of property from his great-great-grandmother, Eleanor De Bohun, wife of Thomas of Woodstock and daughter of the Earl of Hereford, Essex and Northampton. Eleanor's sister and co-heir Mary De Bohun married Henry IV, and so the other half of the estate was eventually inherited by Henry VI. When Henry VI was deposed by Edward IV, Edward incorporated that half into the Crown property. Buckingham claimed those lands should have devolved to him instead. It is likely that Richard III promised to settle the estate on Buckingham in return for his help seizing the throne.
After Richard's coronation he did award the other half of the Bohun estate to Buckingham, but it was conditional on the approval of Parliament. Historians disagree on whether this condition was in fact a way for Richard to appear to keep his promise while actually breaking it. So it might have been a motivation for Buckingham to turn against Richard.
It's also possible that, if Richard was responsible for killing the Princes in the Tower, the murders caused Buckingham to change sides. On the other hand, Buckingham himself had motivation to kill the Princes. He was next in the Lancastrian line after his cousins Henry Tudor and Henry's mother (some say his claim was better than Tudor's, as his descent was considered legitimate). If he killed the Princes and threw the blame on Richard, he could foment a Lancastrian rebellion. Then after eliminating Henry he could take the throne. Some historians take this line of reasoning. In fact, a few go even further and claim Buckingham's plotting started much earlier in Edward IV's reign. If they are right then Buckingham had a very elaborate and lengthy plan, but one which very nearly succeeded. -It is worth noting in this connection that according to a manuscript discovered in the early 1980s in the Ashmolean collection, the Princes were murdered "be [by] the vise" of the Duke of Buckingham. There is some argument over whether "vise" means "advice" or "devise," and, if the former, in what sense; for a discussion of the matter, see the article by Richard Firth Green, who discovered the manuscript, in the English Historical Review of 1984.
