    Sir Humphrey Ferrers, born about 1496 and knighted in 1534.
    He was High Steward of Tamworth for a period.
    In his days, about 1540, Leyland visited Tamworth and wrote thus of the castle ? ?The base court and great ward of the castle is cleane decayed, and the wall fallen down, and therein be now but houses of office of noe notable buildings? and he added, ?the dungeon hill yet standeth, and a great round tower of stone wherein Mr. Ferrers dwelleth, and now repaireth it.?
    Sir Humphrey married Margaret Pigot by whom he had issue, and Dorothy Marrow, the relict of Francis Cokeyne of Ashbourne.
    He resided for the last 26 years of his life at his manor at Walton on Trent and died in 1554 and was succeeded by his son.
