  • PLAINTIFF: Margaret, relict of Sir John Musgrave DEFENDANT: Thomas Musgrave, her son, Sir Edward Musgrave, and Sir William Musgrave PLACE OR SUBJECT: Inheritance of plaintiff's husband at Penrith (bill addressed to Sir T. More) COUNTY: Cumberland 22/04/1509-28/01/1547
  • The Dudley pedigree in the 1564 Visitation of Yorkshire has the wife of Sir John Musgrave as "Dorothy," though as John Higgins has pointed out, she is named "Margaret" in the Musgrave pedigree in the same volume. This has led to Margaret being confused with her sister Dorothy, the wife of Richard Wrottesley, and to PLANTAGENET ANCESTRY erroneously combining the two sisters into one.
