Tutbury Castle became the headquarters of Henry de Ferrers and was the centre of the wapentake of Appletree.

Royal Dutch Shell plc, commonly known as Shell, is an Anglo-Dutch multinational oil and gas company headquartered in the Netherlands and incorporated in the United Kingdom.

Created by the merger of Royal Dutch Petroleum and UK-based Shell Transport & Trading in 1907, in a move largely driven by the need to compete globally with Standard Oil. It is now the seventh largest company in the world as of 2016, in terms of revenue, and one of the six oil and gas "supermajors".

During the First World War, Shell was the main supplier of fuel to the British Expeditionary Force. It was also the sole supplier of aviation fuel and supplied 80 percent of the British Army's TNT. It also volunteered all of its shipping to the British Admiralty.
