About Margaret de Braose

Margaret is first recorded in the 1280 fine between her father and Amicia de Rivers concerning the descent of Chesworth, Grinstead and Bidlington in Sussex. She is noted again, living with her parents in Gower in 1290 when she provides the thread for "measuring" the corpse of William Cragh. This was part of the ritual which invoked the help of St Thomas de Cantilupe in restoring life to this hanged man. (The full story of this meticulously documented medieval miracle is told in The Hanged Man by Robert Bartlett.)

Margaret was married to Ralph de Camoys in 1303. Her mother granted Little Bookham, Surrey, to them. Ralph granted Flockthorpe, Norfolk to Margaret. Ralph and Margaret made a life grant of Little Bookham to her mother, Mary, in 1306 with the service of rendering a rose each year. In 1307, Ralph and Margaret were summoned to attend the coronation of Edward II in the train of the King and Queen. Between 1308 and 1310 Ralph performed military service against the Scots. Ralph married his second wife, Elizabeth, in 1319 and later became constable of Windsor Castle.
