  • Notes 
    • Through information posted on the Internet concerning the family of Porredge/Pordage I learned that Margaret is allegedly the sister of George Carter. There is an Archdeaconry Will for a George Carter of Crundale and Margaret's Will as well available through the LDS.

      Through the Will of her second husband, John Porredge, Margaret and three of her sons received numerous bequests of property, real and personal, as well as money. Margaret was bequeathed 30 pounds, furniture, brass and household goods. She also received all linen and woollen yarn and linen and woollen cloth not cut to be divided with her step-son, Edward Porredge. Margaret was also bequeathed one of the new chambers in the tenement at St. Dunstan's, Canterbury and sufficient meat and drink, fire and washing allowed by Edward Porredge during Margaret's widowhood. She was also to receive an annuity of 8 pounds per year for the remainder of her life as well as a tenement and grounds in St. Dunstan's which was then in the occupation of Bartholomew Rowell. This latter property was to revert to her son Richard Ruck upon Margaret's death.

      Through the Will of Margaret's son, John, there is a bequest to his "aunt, wife of Matthew Spencer". As there are no female children mentioned in the Will of John Rucke, the elder or any unaccounted for female mentioned in the Will of William Rucke, John's father, I have assigned Margaret a sister who would be the wife of Matthew Spencer.
