In 1211/2, there was some litigation between John de Thornhill and Richard de Tange about the Thornhill property. [1]

Mary Emily Fauntleroy states that the history of the de Thornhull family can be traced back to records dated as early as 1200. The earliest de Thornhull was John, who had two sons, Ralph and Walter. [2]
