The Caileys held this lordship from Earl Warren until the early fourteenth century when Sir Thomas Cailey left it to his heir Adam, son of Sir Roger Clifton. Above the west door are the arms of the founder, Sir John Clifton, magnificently carved, the shield bearing Warenne’s arms which his dependant lord assumed, changing the colours and adding a bend. The shield is canted below the helm, from which, quite remarkably, the buckle protrudes over the shield – amazing after over six hundred years. Clifton’s supporters are two ibexes sejant, and his crest a plume of feathers. The lichen encrusting this carving serves only to enhance its magic. Chequy (Or and Gules) a Bend (Ermine). – CLIFTON.
