Saint Margaret Ward (died 30 August 1588), the "pearl of Tyburn", was an English Catholic martyr who was executed during the reign of Elizabeth I for assisting a priest to escape from prison. Her date of birth is unknown, but she was born in Congleton, Cheshire. She was canonised in 1970, as one of the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales.
