Early Origins of the Theune family
The surname Theune was first found in Banffshire
(Gaelic: Siorrachd Bhanbh), former Scottish county located in the northeasterly Grampian region of Scotland
, now of divided between the Council Areas of Moray and Aberdeenshire
, where they held a family seat
from very ancient times, before and after the Norman Conquest
One of the earliest records of the family was Philip de Thaun ( fl. 1120), the Anglo-Norman writer who probably belonged to a Norman family of Thaun or Than, near Caen, but had come to England, perhaps with his uncle Hunfrei de Thaun. CITATION[CLOSE]
