He [Robert de Ogle] married, 1stly, Isabel, sister of John DE FERNIELAW, and, in her issue, heir of his grandson John. [Complete Peerage X:24-6, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
Wallington Parish, Northumberland:
Farneylaw, i.e. the ferny-hill, otherwise called High Farneylaw, is a township, consisting of one farm, the onstead of which is an old peel house, with the byer below, and the apartments of the farmer above, in the old fashion. This ville was accounted a member of the manor of Wallington in the beginning of the reign of Edward the First. We meet with the name of "Robert de Farnylau," in 1284, and John de Fernelau, in 1344, married Philippa, a daughter of William, son of Alexander de Swinburne, in 1344, and gave to her lands in dower in Hertwayton.

NOTE: I found the above through the post-em by John Watson. According to his other references, Isabel had a brother John who had a son John who had a son John, who died without issue when Robert's son Robert Ogle was his heir.
Following is an email from John Watson who has been researching the family:
I've been looking more closely at Northumberland and Durham families recently. For what it's worth I attach my Fernielaw file, but this is still a work in progress. The generations would seem to be:
1. Robert de Fernielaw
2. John de Fernielaw, Isabel de Fernielaw m. Robert Ogle, Thomas de Fernielaw, Chancellor of York
3. John de Fernielaw m. Alice Castell, Thomas de Fernielaw, clerk
4. John de Fernielaw dsp. before 1444, when his heir was Robert Ogle.
There is not really enough evidence to confirm this, but its a working hypotheses.
