I think you already have this, but from Domesday Descendants by Keats-Rohan:
FILII HUGONIS, SIBILLA UXOR GERNAGOTI
Wife of Jernegan fitz Hugh of Tanfield, Yorkshire
(From: Clay: Early Yorkshire Charters (1936), V. no. 319
There are two Tanfields in Yorkshire: West Tanfield and East Tanfield,
fairly close to each other, both between Bedale and Ripon. Greweltough
is now Grewelthorpe.
You can find a bit about the Marmions of Tanfield here:
Domesday Descendants names several Marmions:
Gaufrid Marmon, probably son of Robert fitz Roger Marmion (d.c. 1144)
Ingelran Marmion, ditto
Robert Marmion, son of Roger Marmion and the cdaughter of Urse de
Abitot. His descendant held 4 fees of Gand in Winteringham in 1212. Left
a son, Robert, by his wife Milisendis.
Robert Marmion II, son of Robert and Milisende. Died c 1181 and had son,
Robert (d 1218).
Roger Marmion, son of Robert and Hadvisa, who became a nun in 1106 after
the death of her husband. Brother of Helto and Manasser. Married dau and
coheiress of Urse of Abitot. Died between 1112-1129.
But this is a bit early for you.
