  • Note:

    Re her parents: Susan C. Johanson got the information from the 2nd edition of Plantagenet Ancestry by David Faris. The quote below was contributed to the rootsweb Gen-Medieval list by Douglas Richardson who helped with the book. "The identification of the parentage of Margaret Ferrers, wife of John Beauchamp, lst Lord Beauchamp, of Powick, was contributed by me to David Faris' book, Plantagenet Ancestry, 2nd edition, pg. 216. Complete Peerage states that Margaret was the brother of Richard Ferrers but doesn't give its source. The evidence that Richard was Margaret's brother can be found in Margaret's will proved in 1488
    (P.C.C., 13 Milles), a brief abstract of which is found in Testamenta Vetusta. Richard Ferrers is known to be a younger son of Sir Edmund Ferrers, 6th Lord Ferrers, of Chartley, by his wife, Ellen de la Roche (see the chart in Complete Peerage, 5:320 for Richard's place in the
    Ferrers family tree). I also found records in which Margaret's husband, John Beauchamp, was associated with her oldest brother, Sir William Ferrers, of Chartley. So there can be no doubt that Margaret was a member of the Chartley family. The sources for these records are cited on page 216 of Plantagenet Ancestry, 2nd edition."
