    ----------------------------

    He [Edmund of Woodstock] had a dispensation, 6 October 1325, to marry, though she was related to him in the 3rd or 4th degree, and marry, about Christmas 1325, Margaret, widow of John Comyn, of Badenoch (who died s.p., 24 June 1314, being slain at the battle of Bannockburn, sister and h. of Sir Tbomas WAKE, of Liddel, Cumberland [LORD WAKE], and daughter of Sir John WAKE, of the same [LORD WAKE], by Joan his wife. She was allowed dower out of her first husband's lands in October 1329. Certain letters-the treasonable character of which the Earl did not deny----having come into the King's hands, he was arrested at the Parliament of Winchester on the morrow of St. Gregory [13 March] 1329/30, when he confessed that he had sought to collect forces to restore Edward II, having been persuaded that his half-brother was still alive. He was condemned to death as a traitor by the award of the magnates in the said Parliament on the vigil of St. Cuthbert [19 March], and executed ad vesperas outside the gates of Winchester Castle. He was bur. in the Church of the Friars Minor there, but his body was afterwards removed to Westminster Abbey. On 14 March his wife and children were sent to Salisbury Castle, to be in the custody of the sheriff of Wilts till further orders. On her petition to Parliament on the morrow of St. Nicolas [7 December] 1330, the King, with the assent of Parl., allowed her to have her dower. The Earl's goods were restored to his executors 14 February 1330/1, on 14, 15 February his widow had livery of her dower, and (20, 24 February) of the knights' fees and advowsons of her dower, all of which had been assigned to her by the King. On the death, s.p., of her brother, Thomas, Lord Wake, 31 May 1349, she became, according to modern doctrine, suo jure BARONESS WAKE. On 20 August 1349 the King took her fealty and gave her livery of the lands of her brother, Thomas, Lord Wake, of Liddel, her homage being respited. She was then aged 40 and more. She died 29 September 1349. [Complete Peerage VII:142-8, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
