notes or source:
ancestry.com & LDS
two different sources give two different spouses with equal confidence but don't mention the other. The births of the children are sequential and this is a strong indicator both are correct.
Margaret was our ancestor through two distinct descent lines--both through her son Ranulf and through her son William, each of whom was independently our ancestor.
