    Common-law heir of her brother Thomas who dsp 1483.
    Heiress of Alfreton, Derbyshire, and Annesley, Nottinghamshire.
    She died s.p.m., leaving three daughters, among whose descendants any Barony which may be supposed to have been created by the writ of 1299 is in abeyance. [CP 3:153-4]
    William Chaworth, Esq., the last of this [Alfreton] branch of the family, left an only daughter and heir in the reign of Hen. VII, married to John Ormond, Esq. whose heiress brought the manor to Sir Anthony Babington of Dethick. Henry Babington, Esq., the grandson, sold it in or about the year 1565 to John Zouch, Esq., of Codnor.
    The Chaworth family were first mentioned in Medbourne, Leicestershire, in 1235?6 when William de Chaworth held this manor of William D'Aubeney. In 1257 Thomas de Chaworth secured a grant of free warren in his demesne lands at Medbourne and Tugby. The Chaworth manor at Medbourne descended in the male line of the Chaworth family for 9 or 10 generations until 1485 when on the death of Thomas Chaworth (VII) Medbourne and other Chaworth lands in the neighbourhood reverted to his cousin Joan, sister of Thomas (VI) and wife of John Ormond of Alfreton (Derbys.).
    It was towards the end of the 15th century that Alfreton passed away from the Chaworth family by the marriage of Joan, or Johanna, only daughter and heiress of William Chaworth (aged twenty-eight in 1458), with John Ormond.
