THE PEDIGREE OF THE ESSEX BRANCH OF THE HOUSE OF TWEEDY OF DRUMMELZIER



Roger de Twydyn son of 'Fynlaw de Twyndyn' received the Charter for Barony of Drummelzier from Robert the Bruce, 13 June 1325 and married a da of Lawrence Fraser of Drummelzier .

William de Twedy, Baron of Drummelzier 1331 "son of Roger, son of Finlay del Twydyn".

James Tuedy, Baron of Drummelzier 1351-1360, m cousin da of Sir James Dunbar circa 1351

Walter de Tuedy, Baron of Drummelzier, 'Vice Comes de Peblis 1373'.

James of Tuedy, Baron of Drummelzier, m 1422 his cousin Catherine of Caverhyll who had issue:

  1. Walter Tweedie, from whom the Drummelzier family stems until the line appears to die out when Drummelzier was sold to the Hays of Yester in 1631.
  2. William Tweedy of Oliver from whom the Oliver family stems until Lawrence Tweedie, b 31 May 1766 and d unmarried 25 Jan 1837 having settled his estate on his nephew, George Stodart to form the Tweedie-Stodart line while the male representation of the family passed to Thomas Stevenson Tweedie of Quarter b 1784. He was the gson of Thomas, the first Tweedie of Quarter. Thomas Tweedie of Quarter, b 6 Dec 1692, the first of the line, was the second son of Lawrence's gggfather Thomas Tweedie of Oliver, himself the gson of the said William.
George Twedye, of Boreham, Essex, b circa 1430 recorded in the Visitation of Essex 1558 and 1612 as; "George Twedye who came out of Scotland from the House called DRUMELZIER" and his Arms were given as "Quarterly: 1st and 4th, Argent, a saltire engrailed Gules, a chief Azure (for Tweedy) ; 2nd and 3rd, Azure, a cross Ermine between three cinquefoils Or (for Fraser)"
