Sir William was an impetuous young man who carried off his heiress bride, Isobel Thwaits, removing her from a Cistercian nunnery on the River Wharge and taking her directly to the Bolton Percy Church where they were wed. Through her, he inherited Denton Castle and the nunnery property which became the site of a newly-built home for the Fairfax family, "Nun-Appleton."
