The volume of M.F.'s writings published in 1710 refers to her on the title page as "that ancient, eminent, and faithful servant of the Lord, Margaret Fell; but by her second marriage, Margaret Fox." For the Fell name to be listed first, with Fox almost as an afterthought, suggests that the prominence she had attained in the Quaker movement under the Fell name caused people to keep thinking of her as Margaret Fell even while qualifying this with a reference to her second marriage. The Askew name hardly ever appears in the sources except by way of narrating her early life.
