    Martha Fursman (1723-1741) was the only child of Martha Radcliffe (1688-1727) and the Rev. John Fursman (1680-1759). She died unmarried and is buried with her parents in Exeter Cathedral where her father was chancellor and canon residentiary. In 1730 her guardians brought an action, Radcliffe-v-Fursman, heard at the bar of the House of Lords against her mother's brother, Walter Radcliffe (1693-1752), over the legacy due to her under the will of her grandfather, Jasper Radcliffe (1635-1704).
