We can be reasonably sure that Bishop Edmund Stafford was related to
King Richard II of England through one of only three families: Wake,
Quincy, and Fiennes. When looking for possible routes of kinship, I
believe it is noteworthy that Bishop Stafford's great-grandfather,
Richard de Vernon, was married to a member of the Fiennes family. This
is elementary logic.
