 Legends: Queen Emma's Ordeal by Fire
Queen Emma, the heroine of this story, is believed, in Berkshire, to have resided at Wargrave, one of the manors in question.
In this case it will be shown that Emma, although she may possibly have resided at Wargrave, certainly never possessed the Manor, and consequently could not have given it to Winchester Cathedral, as a thank-offering for her delivery from the Ordeal.
Emma now enters, and after making a long invocation, which commences, "Oh God, who didst save Susannah from the malice of the wicked elders, save me," treads with her bare feet upon the glowing metal: but she senses nothing.

 History Bookshop.com: Emma of Normandy, Queen of England
Her two sons by Aethelred were both educated in Normandy; Alfred was murdered in 1036 while on a visit to his mother in England, and Edward ("the Confessor") was king of England from 1042 to 1066.
Emma seems to have become estranged from her son Edward and in the year following his accession to the throne in 1042 he went with earls Godwin, Leofric and Siward to Winchester and confiscated her lands and property.
The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle suggest that Emma's crime was to have kept her wealth from Edward, but it is also believed that Emma supported Magnus of Norway's claim to the English crown.

 Review: Queen Emma and the Vikings by Harriet O'Brien | Review | Guardian Unlimited Books
And yet Emma of Normandy has slipped so far from popular consciousness that few people in Elizabeth II's England are even aware that their country ever had a Queen Emma.
Emma, already a mother of three at the age of about 30, went on to bear her second royal husband two more children.
But after Harold's death in 1040 the crown passed first to his half-brother Harthacnut, Emma's son by Cnut, and then to Edward, her son by Aethelred, known to posterity as Edward the Confessor, whose failure to produce an heir set the stage for the arrival of the Norman conquerors.
