"William Tailboys, of a prominent Northumberland family (fn. 63) had acquired it by 1315. (fn. 64) He was still lord in 1347, (fn. 65) but, before his death in 1364, (fn. 66) and probably by 1354, it had passed to another Northumberland man, Sir William Heron (fn. 67) of Ford. (fn. 68) When Heron died in 1379 Tailboys manor, with another 210 a. at Croydon held of other fees, and appendages in three neighbouring parishes, descended, unlike his north country lands, to his eldest son Sir Roger Heron. (fn. 69) From 1389 to 1395 William Tailboys's grandson and heir Walter (d. 1411) sued Sir Roger and his wife Margaret to regain the manor. (fn. 70) Walter possibly recovered some rights, for his son Walter (d. 1444) was named as lord of Croydon in 1428, (fn. 71) and that Walter's son, the turbulent William Tailboys (executed 1464), was thought to have land there at his forfeiture in 1461. (fn. 72)"
