The Brus family also held the Forest and Lordship of Danby, given to Robert de Brus by King William II (1089).
Robert built Castleton Castle at Danby, which is not to be confused with Castleton in Derbyshire.
Castleton Castle was eventually superseded in the 14th Century by the more modern Danby Castle
