“Robertus comes de Ferrariis” granted property “in Stebbingis…per Margaretam comitissam uxorem meam” to Morice FitzGeoffrey by charter dated “VI Kal Oct IV anno imperii Regis Stephani” (1139). Her parentage is suggested by the charter of John King of England which names “Willelmo de Ferrariis comiti” as heir to territories of “Willelmi Peverell”. If this parentage is correct, Margaret is unlikely to have been born outside the narrow date range shown above, which would also indicate that her marriage took place only shortly before the date of this charter. 1
Margaret married Robert DE FERRERS, Earl of Derby, son of Robert DE FERRERS, Earl of Derby, and Hawise DE VITRÉ, before 1139 in Nottinghamshire, England. (Robert DE FERRERS was born in Derbyshire, England, died by 1160 and was buried in Merevale Abbey, Warwickshire, England.)
