Heiress of South Wingfield.:
The manor of South Wingfield was held by the Peverells at the time of the Domesday survey, and came through the families of Heriz and Bellers to Lord Treasurer Cromwell, who built the castle or manor-house in the reign of Henry VI.
At the Domesday Survey, the manor of Tibshelf (then Tibecel), Derbyshire, was held by Robert, under the King. It was then held by successive families of Heriz, Belers, Swillington and Pierrepont.
Having wrested the Heriz family inheritance from Sir Henry Pierrepont (his colleague in the Parliament of 1423) by highly dubious means, Cromwell secured his title, in 1431, by conveying the property to a panel of influential feoffees, including Sit Thomas Chaworth and his friend, Sir Richard Vernon.
The first Norman lord of the manor was Robert de Heriz whose family later built the first church here, called Linbery chapel, in the 12th century.
