Early Origins of the Turnich family
The surname Turnich was first found in Middlesex where the family was first referenced in the year 1194 when Robert de Turnham held Turnham Green in Chiswick. Another reference was found of what we presume is the same person. "Bayham Abbey [in the parish of Frant in Kent] was founded for Præmonstratensian canons, by Robert de Turneham, who, about 1200, gave all his lands here for the purpose." CITATION[CLOSE]

The same Baron Robert de Turnham (d. 1211), was noted as the younger son of Robert de Turnham, founder of Combwell Priory, Kent. His brother Stephen de Turham (d. 1215) was a justice who was also identified as Stephen de Tours or de Marzai, but this is where confusion starts. "Stephen de Tours or de Marzai (d. 1193) is mentioned in the Pipe Rolls for Norfolk in 1158, and was one of the Royal Chamberlains in 1161. There are references to him as 'Stephen de Turon' in the Pipe Rolls from 1159 to 1172. " CITATION[CLOSE]
