    2. SIR ROGER HERON, son and heir, born about 1330, and aged 40 and more in 1381. He for some reason seems to have lost Ford and the principal hereditary lands (m), though he succeeded to Croydon. He
    occurs as a knight in 1364. In 1390 Sir Walter Tailboys claimed the manor of Croydon afsd. against him. Nothing is known of his career. He married Margaret. He was dead in 1400, as appears by the inquisition on his son. His widow, whose parentage is unknown, married, in May 1401, John BLAKET, the King's esquire. She died in 1407.

    (m) William, his [younger] brother, had Ford. He is called "the blind, of Simonburn", in the pedigrees (eg. that by Sir Richard Heron compiled in 1798, where the eldest son Roger is omitted and his descendants are assigned to this William, whose descendants are assigned to John Heron of Thornton). In 2388, as "William Heron of Ford, Esq.", he complained that after a raid on his lands by the Scots two years previously he had made a counter-raid in time of truce, being thereupon imprisoned and fined by the Earl of Northumberland. He may have been the William Heron who was Knight of the shire for Northumberland in 1371.
