During the reign of Henry III the Mynors, of the manor of Windle-hill in Sutton-on-the-Hill, Ashbourne also had lands in Windley.
Sir Roger Mynor was High Sheriff of Derbyshire in 1514, Sergeant of the King's Cellar, an official of Duffield Frith under the Duchy of Lancaster and a Commissioner of Peace for the County of Derby. He, with his lady, has a magnificent table-tomb in St. Alkmunds Church, Duffield.
