She received dower in September 1332, and in 1334 obtained the castle of Bridgwater and various manors as her right by gift of Roger de Mortimer.

She was a great benefactress of the Church. Among numerous other gifts, she bestowed on the house of the Black Friars in Ludgate (where she was buried) "a cross made of the wood of the very cross of our Saviour, which she usually carried with her, wherein was contained one of the thorns of His crown."

Her will, dated 31 May 1356, directed burial in the Black Friar's, London (where her tomb is recorded by Stow).
