      Her husband's rise to prominence in England came through his marriage to Margaret. She was the younger sister of Robert de Beaumont, Earl of Leicester, but it is probably no coincidence that her other brother was the de Quincy's powerful Fife neighbour, Roger de Beaumont, Bishop of St Andrews. Earl Robert died in 1204, and left Margaret as co-heiress to the vast earldom along with her elder sister. The estate was split in half, and after the final division was ratified in 1207, de Quincy was made Earl of Winchester.

      She had three sons and three daughters:

      1. Lora who married Sir William de Valognes, Chamberlain of Scotland.

      2. Arabella who married Sir Richard Harcourt.

      3. Robert (d. 1217), before 1206 he married Hawise of Chester, Countess of Lincoln, sister and co-heiress of Ranulf de Blundeville, Earl of Chester.

      4. Roger, who succeeded his father as earl of Winchester (though he did not take formal possession of the earldom until after his mother's death).

      5. Robert de Quincy (second son of that name; d. 1257) who married Helen, daughter of the Welsh prince Llywelyn the Great.

      6. Hawise, who married Hugh de Vere, Earl of Oxford.
