She married John Comyn, but he died in France in 1242.

A husband was needed to control the dispersed earldom, she then married Gilbert de Umfraville, a Norman, who was feudal Baron of Prudhoe in Northumberland. He died shortly before 13 March 1245, but not before Matilda had borne him a son named Gilbert to succeed to the earldom in his infancy. Matilda married again before 22 December 1247, Richard de Dover, a grandson of King John of England, the feudal baron of Chilham, Kent, the son of Richard Fitz Roy.
