Isle of Man - Ferdinando, Earl of Derby, Lord of Mann (25 September 1593 - 16 April 1594)

Ferdinando Stanley, 5th Earl of Derby was the son of Henry Stanley, 4th Earl of Derby and Lady Margaret Clifford. Ferdinando had a place in the line of succession according to the Will of Henry VIII, after his mother, whom he predeceased.
