Her maiden name is not proven.
Margaret's sons, Robert & John sailed for New England in 1634, taking Robert's 3-year-old son, Robert. He probably left his baby son, John, with his mother.
Margaret was witness to a bond in Aug. 1636 at Great Baddow concerning her orphaned grandson Abraham PAGE.
John probably returned to England to get his mother in 1639. Margaret (age 66) sailed to the American colonies about 1639, probably bringing her grandson, John with her.
Will dated Sep. 1, 1644 and proved Jan. 1, 1644/5, naming only grandsons Robert and John, sons of her son Robert. [In June 1644 her son John had sold his property in Salem and moved away to Martha's Vineyard.]

It?s very likely she was buried in Old Salem Burying Point cemetery, the second oldest cemetery in the US (also called Charter Street Cem). Howard Street is another Salem Cem, but not as old.
