    BARONY OF FERRERS OF CHARTLEY (CP doesn't give numbers/recognize the title?)

    SIR EDMUND FERRERS, of Chartley, &c., usually called LORD FERRERS OF CHARTLEY, son and heir, by 2nd wife, aged 26 and more, or 27 and more, at his father's death. The King took his homage and fealty, and he had livery of his father's lands, 14 April 1413. Soon afterwards, assisted by his brothers, Thomas and Edward, he carried on a sort of private war with the Erdeswikes of Sandon, near Chartley: both parties petitioned Parliament in 2 Henry V, each claiming to be the one aggrieved. In consequence of these and many other lawless occurrences, the King accompanied Chief justice Hankeford to cos. Leicester, Stafford, and Salop, to hear plaints in person. Edmund had been presented for having, on Christmas Day 1413, given liveries of green and white cloth--3 yards apiece--to many persons not of his household: he appeared before the King in Court in June 1414, and eventually obtained a pardon, 24 January 1414/5, for all treasons, murders, and other offences committed up to 8 December, saving murders if any-committed after 19 November, 1414. He accompanied the King to France in August 1415, and was at the siege of Harfleur, August to September, at the battle of Agincourt, 25 October 1415, and at the relief of Harfleur by the Duke of Bedford, August 1416. He accompanied the King to France in August 1417, and was at the siege of Rouen, July 1418 to January 1418/9, being in the division commanded by the Earl of Huntingdon: at that of Melun, July to November 1420, and at that of Meaux, October 1421 to May 1422.

    He married Ellen, 2nd daughter and coheir of Thomas Roche, of Castle Bromwich, co. Warwick, by Elizabeth, daughter and heir of Sir Thomas BIRMINGEHAM, and niece and heir of Sir John BIRMINGEHAM, of Birmingham, co. Warwick, Kingston Bagpuze, Berks, &c. They had livery of that portion of her inheritance which Elizabeth, Lady Clinton, formerly wife of the said Sir John Birmingeham, had held in dower or otherwise, 1 December 1423. He died 17 December 1435. His widow's dower was ordered to be assigned, 7 February 1435/6, the manor of Castle Bromwich, and the moieties of the manors of Whitacre and Birmingham, which he had held in her right as of her inheritance, having been liberated to her, 4 February 1435 /6. She had licence to marry whom she would, for a fine of 40, 28 August 1436. She married, 2ndly, as 1st wife, before 3 May 1438, Sir Philip CHETEWYND, of Ingestre, co. Stafford, and Grendon, co. Warwick (e). She died 4 November 1440. He died 10 May 1444. [Complete Peerage V:317-9, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    (e) By a fine, levied from St. Martin in fifteen days 18 Hen VI, Philip Chetewynd kt. and Ellen his wife conveyed the manor of Bromwich, and the moieties of the manors of Whitacre, co. Warwick, Barr, co. Stafford, Dorton, Bucks, and Kingston Badpuze, Berks, to John Ferrers and others, and the heirs of John. The deed to lead the uses, 19 May 17 Hen VI, shows that the object was to provide 40s. a year for Herry, Richard, and Edward Ferrers, sons of the said Ellen.
