William de Chesney, son and heir of Robert Fitz Walter, used his mother's surname. He was also known as "William de Norwich." He was a very important many in his day, as Sheriff of Norfolk, the founder of Sibton Abbey, Suffolk, and benefactor to Blyburgh. The manor of Horsford descened to William's daughter Margaret, who first married Hugh de Cressey and married as her second husband Robert Fitz Roger, who died in 1215, and who was also the founder of Langley Priory, Norfolk. The Manor of Horsford passed to Roger de Cressy, her son by her first husband, and from him it passed three more generations. When that branch of the de Cressy family became extinct in 1296, the manor of Horford passed to Robert Fitz Roger, the great grandson of Margaret and her second husband Robert Fitz Roger.
