Why were Lancasters rich (Discussion/Question)

Bear with me, most of my knowledge of English history comes from Real Royalty, Extra History Kings and Generals from youtube and from public forums.

So, I’ve had recently learned that one of the sons of Edward III got himself and nice duchy of Lancaster through his marriage with his wife and became one of the richest men in England. Now here is my question, why were lancastrains rich? Duchy of lancaster is not a big piece of land and I haven’t heard anything about any natural riches so could someone please tell me were did Lancasters got so much money from?
