Sir William De Ferrers
Birth: 1172
Staffordshire, England
Death: Sep. 20, 1247
Derbyshire, England

William's death is erroneously said to have died in Chartley Castle, of the gout-- in fact his gout-related death was due to injury, as recounted in an anecdote in Burke's: "His lordship, who from his youth had been a martyr to the gout, and in consequence obliged to he drawn from place to place in a chariot, lost his life by being thrown through the heedlessness of his driver over the bridge at St. Neots, co. Huntingdon." He died in an inn enroute to Chartley, and Agnes his wife of 55 years died upon the arrival of his body-- so he was not conveyed to Merevale Abbey (as has been reported), and the two of them were given a joint funeral and burial at Chartley.

Son of William de Ferrers d 1190 and Sybil de Braose. Husband of Agnes of
Chester, and father of:
William de Ferrers
Sybil de Ferrers
Joane de Ferrers
Petronillan de Ferrers
