     There's a Margaret DUNCANSON/Henry EDGCUMBE marriage indexed in Tasmania in 1857 which some trees assign to this Margaret.
Other trees show Henry's wife as Elizabeth DUNCANSON born 1836 in Tasmania and newspaper reports of the time show the latter as more accurate:
MARRIED. At Evandale, on the 3rd March, by special license, by the Rev. Robert Russell, Thos. Laurence Brown, of Perth, to Emily, second daughter of Mr. Isaac Coote, of Mount- ford, Perth. At Cotehill, Deloraine, on the 10th instant, by special license, by the Rev. James Lindsay, Henry L. J. Edge- cumbe, Esq., to Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Malcolm Duncanson, Esq., Hobart Town.
The ever inventive online trees also assign this Margaret as marrying a William EWING and living in Lanarkshire.
There is another Margaret also born at Alva, but a year later that might fit that one better?5
