Margaret was married three times. Her second marriage (in Gloucester) was to Richard Read whose residence was Ruardean, and she clearly lived there in the Ruardean/Walford area after that, as when her second husband died and was buried in Ruardean, she married for the third time to Henry Smart from Ruardean (her residence was given as Walford). She appears to have children (Margaret and Henry) by her third husband Henry Smart at the age or 42 and 44. She lived until she was 77, and was buried just North of Ruardean and Walford in Upton Bishop. A remarkable woman!
