    William de Ferrers, 3rd Earl of Derby, rebelled against Henry II and marching at the head of the Leicestershire men (19th Henry II) upon Nottingham, then kept for the king by Reginald de Luci, got possession of the town which he sacked, putting the greater part of the inhabitants to the sword and taking the rest prisoners. He was soon afterwards, however, reduced to submission and obliged to surrender to the crown his castles in Tutbury and Duffield, which were demolished by order of the king.
    His lordship m. Sibilla, dau. of William de Braose, Lord of Abergavenny and Brecknock, by whom he had issue.
    [Sir Bernard Burke, Dormant, Abeyant, Forfeited, and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage, Ltd., London, 1883, p. 196, Ferrers, Earls of Derby
    There is substantial confusion over his name. See The Complete Peerage V4.p193 for an account. Could have been two brothers, William and Robert. Robert being the Earl and when he died at Acre his nephew William son of his brother William suceeded, but no documents support this theory either.
    Wakelin de Ferrers built the hall of Oakham Castle c1180-90 and endowed Brooke Priory.
