  • Notes 
    • Killed while leading a force attacking the house of John Manners of Etal, near Ford.

      "On 1 September 1425, Sir William Heron of Ford, the second cousin of William Heron of Thornton, died leaving as his heir a daughter Elizabeth, aged three and no male heirs. In 1337, Sir William Heron of Ford had entailed Ford on his male heirs. William Heron of Thornton [the subject of this page --PNH] was Sir William’s closest male relative and thus inherited the manor and castle of Ford. Between late 1425 and his death in early 1428, he became known as William Heron of Ford, a source of confusion in many histories of the family. He was however, never knighted." [John Watson, citation details below]
