Name: Margaret Trussell 1 1
Change Date: 24 MAR 2008
Ermentrude's mother was the daughter of Sir John Trussell of Cublesdon and his wife Eleanor. Owing to a male entail placed on the Trussell estates, John's brother William was his next heir.
The Every of Eggington papers (Derbyshire RO, D5236/9/6) state that Margaret Sulney nee Trussell was her uncle William's eventual heir. It is explained that this happened on the death without issue of Elizabeth, wife of Baldwin Freville. Elizabeth was the daughter and heir of Katherine Trussell (who married her cousin Sir Amery Trussell), who was in turn daughter and heir of William Trussell, said to be the brother of Margaret's father John.
If John's brother William is the William who married Maud Mainwaring, then his issue did not become extinct on the death of Elizabeth Freville, and thus Margaret Sulney, if she came from a collateral branch, cannot have been his heir.
