Margaret. On 11 July 1311 King Edward requested the Pope to grant a dispensation for her marriage with Roger de Moubray, they being within the forbidden degrees of consanguinity. It is not certain that this marriage ever took place. On 30 January 1324-25 she had leave to visit Scotland to treat with her friends there as to the recovery of her hereditary lands ; and on 24 October 1328 a papal dispensation was granted for her marriage to John Stewart, Earl of Angus. This marriage took place, and the Countess lived till about 1370, surviving both her husband and her son."
