It seems that Henry de Ferrers was given the village (and 209 other manors) by William the Conqueror and that his decendents include Lady Diana. He was a legatus ('commissioner’) on the West Midland circuit of the Domesday survey.The land of Harbury consisted of work for over 5 ploughs and was valued at four pounds.

He has a big Wikipedia entry here:
