Another name for Margaret was Margery Bardolf.
Noted events in her life were:
• Manorial Estate, 1243, Poynings Manor, Steyning, West Sussex, BN45, GB. 1 The manor of POYNINGS was probably identical with 8 hides held in 1086 of William de Warenne by William son of Rainald, who may be identified with Rainald de Poynings son of Reiner.
[...] Adam de Poynings and his wife Beatrice were holding land at Poynings about 1140. They had a son Adam. In 1242-3 Thomas de Poynings held Poynings and its members as 10 knights' fees, and was succeeded by his son Luke, who was holding Poynings in 1284-5, and died in 1294. Michael son and heir of Luke died in 1316, in which year his widow Margery was holding Poynings. In 1339 Thomas, Michael's heir and first holder of the barony of Poynings, created in 1337, died seised of the manor, which descended to his son Michael, who died in March 1369. His widow Joan held the manor as dower till her death a few months later, and it passed subsequently to her son Thomas who died in 1375 having settled the manor on his wife Blanche for life. It does not, however, appear among her possessions at her death in 1409. Thomas's heir was his young brother Richard, who held the manor until 1387. His widow Isabel held as her dower until her death in 1394. Richard's son Robert died in 1446, and since his only son Richard had died in 1430, the manor passed to Richard's daughter Eleanor, wife of Henry Percy son and heir of Henry Percy, Earl of Northumberland. Subsequently the lordship of Poynings became merged in the earldom of Northumberland.
Margaret married Sir Michael de Poynings, son of Luke de Poynings and Hawise. (Sir Michael de Poynings died on 24 Jun 1314 in "Battle of Bannockburn", Bannockburn, Stirling, Scotland, FK7, GB.). The cause of his death was killed in battle.
