Margaret Crawford

Title: 
Lady

According to Blind Harry's epic poem "The Wallace"

So much for the brave Wallace’s father’s side,
Nor will I here his mother’s kindred hide:
She was a lady most complete and bright,
The daughter of that honorable knight,
Sir Ranald Crawford, high sheriff of Ayr,
Who fondly doted on his charming fair.

Margaret Crawford married ? Wallace (there is some dispute as to William Wallace's father's first name) and they had four children - Malcolm, William, John and an unnamed daughter who married into the Baillie of Lamington family.
