    Johanne, heir to Thos. de Ferrariis, Dom. de Lockesleye com. Staffs. [her brother]
    In 1327, the Ferrers lost another major architectural possession and title. Loxley Hall and the estate surrounding it in neighbouring Uttoxeter parish, Staffordshire passed through marriage to the Kynnersleys of Kynnersley Castle, Herefordshire, when John Kynnersley married Joanna de Ferrers, sister and heiress of Thomas de Ferrers, Lord of Loxley. Loxley parish, four miles southeast of Stratford, is one of the legendary birthplaces of Robin Hood, also known as Robin of Locksley, situated on a hill overlooking the Avon valley. If there really was a Saxon nobleman whose family was ousted from Loxley Hall by the Norman invaders, chances are the ancestors of Robin Hood got the boot from a Ferrers.
