Margaret, Duchess of Norfolk
alias: Margaret Brotherton; Margaret Marshall
WikiTree.com -- Margaret, Duchess of Norfolk (c.1320 - 24 Mar 1399), was the eldest daughter of Thomas of Brotherton. Her brother Edward, pre-deceased their father, so she and her remaining sibling, Alice of Norfolk, were co-heirs ... with the earldom of Norfolk falling into abeyance, between them. While Alice did have issue, documentation muddles the exact number of children. She had at least one proven child: Joan, Baroness Montecute, who had no surviving children ... leaving Margaret, the sole heiress.
She's the only woman to serve as Earl Marshal, and was created Duchess of Norfolk for life, on 29 September 1397.
