These people are just marginally off topic for this list but here goes:

From CP IX, 296:

"Robert (Douglas), [8th Douglas] earl of Morton... m. Anne, sister of
William 2nd Viscount Grandison and da. of Sir Edward Villiers, by
Barbara da. of Sir John St John."

And CP V, 75 says of Wm, 2nd viscount:

"William (Villiers), Viscount Grandison of Liverick, great-nephew [of
Oliver St John] and (according to the spec. rem. in the creaton) h. to
that peerage. He was s. and h. of Sir Edward Villiers ... by Barbara,
1st da. of Sir John St John..."
