Apparently Sibyl's sister Gillian/Julian married an Aske, accordng to Hist. Parl.

According to John Watson here, Gillian was the first wife of John Aske-2.

Another theory gives Sibyl a sister Elizabeth Erghom-1, who married Sir John Carthorpe (their daughter & heiress married Richard Fairfax of Walton d 1432).

Marlyn Lewis.

This is puzzling as there is no mention of any 3rd co-heiress or Fairfax connection in the Cumberworth/Constable story.

Note Lewis conflates two different Sir Williams. According to the CP source cited, Sibyl FitzHenry (da. of Henry not Aucher, see footnote g) married and survived a Sir William Erghom who died in 1347. But according to Hist. Parl, the Sibyl Erghom who married Robert Cumberworth was the daughter of a Sir William Erghom who died abt 1403. His wife (d bef 1400) appears to have been Katherine Cressy, sister of John Cressy and Elizabeth (Cressy) Vavasour.

She was the daughter, and with her sister Juliana/Gillian, coheiress of Sir William Argam (spelling varies), lord of the manor of Argam in Yorkshire, who died about 1403. See here:
