    William Heron was listed as the owner of Ford Castle in 1415. A younger William Heron was killed in an attack on Etal Castle in 1428 [1400?], and this led to a family feud. The prior of Tynemouth and Durham in arbitration ruled that John Manners should have 500 masses sung for the repose of William Heron and pay his widow 250 marks. There was also a dispute about the wardship of his son, and the King took over for a time. The Castle had been reduced to ruins by the feud.
