biographical and/or anecdotal:
Robert de Ferrers, 4th Earl of Derby, rebelled against Henry II., and marching at the head of the Leicester men (in the 19th year of 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 of Tutbury and Duffield, which were demolished by order of the king.
There is substantial confusion over his name.
