    FERRERS of Bere Ferrers and Newton Ferrers, Devon.

    Ferrieres: Manche, arr. Mortain, cant. Le Tilleul.

    In 1086 Bere Ferrers (Birland) and Newton Ferrers (Niwetona) were both held by Reginald de Valletorte of Robert count of Mortain. At a later date both were held by Ferrers of Valletorte as of the barony of Trematon. The earliest recorded existence of this family in Devon was Ralf de Ferrers in 1168. Ferrieres is 12 kil. S of Mortain and 26 kil. N of Vautorte (dept. and arr. Mayenne, cant. Ernee). In 1112 Roger de Ferrariis occurs among the witnesses 'de valle Moritonii' to Henry I's charter of confirmation for the abbey of Savigny. Ferrers of Churston Ferrers, Devon appear to have been cadets of this family, and it is probable that all those of the name in Devon and Cornwall were of the same stock.
