Are the following two sentences consistent? They both relate to an heiress, Margaret de Bupton, who married a Nicholas fitz Nigel.
1 - The [bishop's] see of Chester was vacant from August, 1126 until December, 1129, and its temporalities were in the king's hand. Geoffrey de Clinton was the custos and it was during this period that Margaret de Bupton, as a minor holding of the bishop, became his ward.
2 - Between 1126-29 Margaret, wife of Nicholas f. Nigel, granted in frankalmoign to the church and canons of S. Mary of Kenilworth the church of Longford, situated in her patrimony.
Would a woman who is married (to say, a man who is not yet 21) continue to be a ward until either she or her husband became 21?
Could an heiress who is not yet 21 grant frankalmoign in her inherited properties?
