In 1166 Robert FitzRobert was recorded as holding a knight's fee of the old feoffment of William de Percy (see PERCY), i.e. in the East Riding of Yorkshire. Percy held, for example, Ganton, which is adjacent to Thweng.
[THWE361] Sir Marmaduke de Thweng (born c.1170). He died some time after 1234.
[THWE371] Sir Robert de Thweng (born c.1205) married (c.1225) [KILT372] Maud (born c.1213, widow of Richard de Autrey, and daughter of [KILT362] Roger de Kilton, 2nd son of [KILT351] Ilger de Kilton). He died some time after 1246.
[THWE381] Sir Marmaduke de Thweng (born c.1225), Lord of Kilton Castle, married (c.1242) [BRUS392] Lucy (2nd daughter of Lord Peter II de Brus, see SKELTON LORDSHIP). He also-acquired the manors of Danby, Brotton and Skinningrove, and the town of Yarm. He was also granted in 1257 the right to hold markets and fairs at Thweng. He was captured at the Battle of Lewes (14th May 1264). He died c.1282-84.
