1) The documentation within the Biography indicates that her birth was abt 1529, and that is widely the accepted birthdate.

2) The will of Roger Wright was written 12 years after Margaret died. I am just suggesting that there is still a lot of validation of these records that needs to be done.

The naming of Margaret's son Richard Lyncolne as executor of Roger's will and the other terms seem to prove the marriage to both Lincoln and Wright.

I'm still checking out the birth date. If you have a source for the correct date, please let me know or add the correct information to the profile.

Please validate birthdate (1500), it is not correct, even sources show it is not correct. Also, need to validate marriage to Roger Wright, and children.
