    She was mistress of Sir Nicholas de Meinell, Lord Meinell, son of Sir Nicholas de Meinell, Lord Meinell, and Christine.
    ---
    Some say she also married Robert de Everingham and had Adam, 1st Baron Everingham:
    Robert de Everingham m. Lucia, dau. and heiress of Robert de Thwenge, a great feudal lord, temp. Edward I (the lady had been previously the wife of Sir William Latimer, and divorced) and dying in the 15th Edward I [1287], was s. by his son, Adam. [Sir Bernard Burke, Dormant, Abeyant, Forfeited, and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage, Ltd., London, 1883, p. 193, Everingham, Barons Everingham]

    Lucy was 5 months pregnant when she married William Latimer (Ist Lord) in August 1294, so William Latimer, 1st baron and putative grandfather had the child declared illegitimate and induced the king to grant him the lordship and forest of Danby for life.
    The paternity of the child was likely to have been that of her cousin Marmaduke Thweng, for a year later Lucy had left Latimer and was living with Marmaduke as his mistress. Latimer obtained a divorce and married Sybil de Fourneaux, by which time Lucy had left Marmaduke and was living with Stephen Meinell and had had a son by him.
    ---
    In 1272 Brotton, Yorks, passed to Lucy wife of Marmaduke de Thweng of Kilton Castle, and afterwards with Danby to their granddaughter Lucy. The manor was settled in 1313 on Lucy and her second husband Robert de Everingham and their issue with remainder to the right heirs of Robert. (fn. 19) After his death in 1316 without issue the manor was settled on Bartholomew de Fanacourt, her third husband, for life with remainder to Adam Lord Everingham of Laxton, brother and heir of Robert, and his son Adam. (fn. 20) Lucy died in January 1346?7 (fn. 21) and Bartholomew in 1352, (fn. 22) when the manor reverted to the younger Adam Lord Everingham.
