notes on Edmund de Thwenge
Sir Edmund de Thwenge
of Cornburgh, nr Sheriffhutton, and Southburn;
d.15 Oct 1344 Inq.p.m 15 Oct 1344;
bur at Sheriff Hutton, where his effigy in mail armour still exists in the north chapel.

Married to Isabel, dau. of Sir Robert Constable of F1amborough, and Katherine, dau of Peter, Lord Mauley; dower assigned 18 Oct. 1345 of lands in Cornbrough and Southburn; d. 1346; bur. at Flamborough. Inq.p.m. 21 July 1346

Previous threads have noted the identification in varied sources of Katherine, wife of Sir Robert le Constable of Flamborough, co. Yorks. (sometimes wrongly placed, but correctly he who d. aft 8 Dec 1336) as Katherine de Mauley, daughter of Piers de Mauley [of various generations]. In connection with this issue, I have noted the following details taken from the pedigree of Thwenge of Kilton:

Inq.p.m. 21 July 1346

Interestingly, while the pedigrees for the Thwenges of Kilton and their cadets (pp. 371-385) are based in part on Visitation pedigrees, the notes to same indicate many other reliable primary and secondary sources used in their compilation, including VCH (Yorkshire), Testamenta Eboracensia, Yorkshire Inquisitions and others (some of which are cited, if incompletely, in the pedigrees as shown above) [2].

The foregoing works well with the separate record I noted in the Constable pedigree (Foster's) which states, without attribution, ' Robert Constable, was of Flamborough, calls Sir Marmaduke Thwenge his uncle 1319, and Edward Thwenge, of Cornburgh, his cousin. ' [3]

The chronology of the career of this Sir Robert le Constable [4], and of the de Mauley family (as can best be determined) indicates the following conjectural chart, now enhanced with the details given in the HSP Yorkshire pedigrees:
1) Joan de = Piers de Mauley = 2) NNBrus b. aft 24 May 1221 Id. bef 15 Jul 1279 I_______________________I_____I IPiers de Mauley = bef 1274 Nichole Sir Robert b. 22 Jul 1249 I de Gant de Mauleyd. 6 Sept 1308 I (cf.

The foregoing would provide a relationship (or relationships) between Sir Robert le Constable and Sir Edmund (not Edward) de Thwenge of Cornburgh, consistant with those shown in the Thweng pedigree cited above, and with the statements give by Foster that Sir Robert le Constable had called "Edward" Thwenge of Cornburgh his cousin (if only by marriage).
The probable descent of Sir Robert le Constable himself from the de Thwengs of Kilton has not yet been resolved, although hinted at by Foster as shown above. Perhaps the IPMs cited in HSP 96:376-7 for Joan (de Mauley) de Thweng, dated 21 July 1347, and for Isabel (le Constable) de Thweng, dated 21 July 1346, will provide further proof, or additional details for research.
