    The Furnivals, who succeeded the Lovetots, were certainly a family of equal if not greater distinction. According to the rhyming pedigree in Dugdale they ?came out of Normandie streight as we rede,? and were landowners in that country, for at Gerard?s death he was entombed at Ebrard in his own demesne ?which is called Furnival.?
    He had three sons?Thomas, Gerard, and William. The two former became Crusaders. Thomas was slain by the Saracens, and his body left in the Holy Land, but his mother caused Gerard to return to recover the remains, which were subsequently entombed at Worksop.
    There is a tradition that King John, when in arms against his barons, visited, Gerard de Furnival, who espoused his cause, and remained with him for some time at his castle in Sheffield.
