b. Marmaduke de Thwenge acted as an attorney in a lawsuit in 1200 on behalf of his overlord, Piers de Brus, and in 1204, he was in custody, when his sureties paid a fine and pledged to restrain him from causing a tumult. He was apparently sympathetic to the northern barons against King John, as in 1217 he is mentioned as one of those who had made peace with the Crown. He often served as judge itinerant, and until August 1240 he acted as coroner in Yorkshire. The identity of his wife has evidently never been found in surviving records, nor is the date of his death known, but he was still living on 23 November 1234.

e. Called a royal knight and banneret in 1260 and 1261, when he was granted robes by the King. Marmaduke went on pilgrimage to Santiago in 1262, and in 1264, he was summoned to join the King under arms and was captured at the battle of Lewes by Hugh le Despenser (to whom he owed ransom of 700 m). He was summoned for service against the Scots in 1258, and again in 1264 and 1283 against the Welsh. He was granted the right to hold markets and fairs in Thwing, Lund, and Coatham in 1257. In 1272 he obtained the manors of Danby, Brotton, and Skinningrove, as well as the town of Yarm in Yorkshire.

The following year, 1200, Marmaduke is recorded as being the attorney for his overlord Piers de Brus.

in 1204, Marmaduke de Thweng was bailed on charge of murder (seems to have joined the Northern barons in opposing King John).

He married circa 1200.
