The first member of the family of whom there is documentary evidence is this Robert's son, also named Robert. He was called "Robert son of Robert," and he held a knight's fee of William de Percy in Legsby and elsewhere in Linconlnshire in 1166. the name Thweng shows that there was a connection with Thwing in East Riding Yorkshire. Although there are no surviving records to show this, it is believed that Robert de Thweng, the son of Robert, held half a knight's fee of Adam de Brus in 1166. It has also been suggested that the family originated in Durham and were related to the FitzMarmadukes, lords of Horden.
