Question from Jo-Anne - Properties confiscated from Margaret Beaufort under Richard III

Does anyone know the names of the castles and estates that were confiscated from Lady Margaret Beaufort under Richard III and subsequently restored to her by her son Henry VII?

If you can get ahold of a copy of "The King's Mother" by Jones and Underwood, there is a whole chapter detailing Margaret's properties through her whole life. You'd have to go through and tally up what she held and inherited prior to what she lost after the Buckingham rebellion failed and Richard III confiscated the titles and properties.
