Margaret married William Ball II of Lancaster County before November 11th, 1672. He was the son of immigrants William Ball I and Hannah Atherold and had been born in London himself before coming to Virginia as a young man. William and Margaret had nine children. They lived on a 227-acres plantation near present day Lancaster Courthouse. It appears that many of lands patented by Margaret's father eventually came to William II. William II held many of the same offices as his father; he was a Burgess, Chief Justice in county court and an officer in the militia. When William I died in 1680 William II inherited most of his lands including the property that came to be known as Millenbeck.
William II wrote his will on September 28th, 1694 and it was proven soon after on November 16th. Margaret wrote her will on February 6th, 1697 and it was not proven until September 9th, 1702. She left a slave each to her three oldest sons, to Joseph and George then next oldest sons she left a piece of land in Richmond County. To her daughter Margaret she left her clothing and a silver tankard given to Margaret by William II. Margaret also made a bequest to her sister Mary, but the writing is illegible. Margaret signed her will by making a mark shaped like the letter "M".
