Second Generation



2. ROBERT the BRUCE, b. 1274, SCOTLAND, occupation KING OF SCOTLAND(1306-29), d. 1329, SCOTLAND.

Robert the Bruce was the great champion of Scottish independence. He waged a long and uncertain war against Edward I, perhaps the greatest King of England, who almost succeeded in making Scotland a fief of England. Then Independence of Scotland and the title of "Bruce" to the throne were firmly established by the crushing defeat of Edward II at the battle of Bannockburn in 1314. The great place of Robert the Bruce in Scottish history is fully attested by the writings of standard historians and his fame is immortalized in literature. Robert the Bruce was married twice. His first wife was Isabella of Mar, by whom had only one daughter, Marjory, who later married Walter Stewart, the sixth holder of the hereditary title of High Steward of Scotland. His son by his second wife, Elizabeth de Burgh, was David Bruce who succeeded his father to the throne.

3. MARJORY BRUCE, b. CIRCA 1297, DUNDONALD, KYLE AYRSHIRE,SCOTLAND, d. 2 Mar 1316, SCOTLAND, buried: 1316, ABBEY of PAISLEY, SCOTLAND.

Margery was the daughter of Robert I "the Bruce" King of Scotland from his marriage to Isabella of Mar. Margery married Sir Walter Stewart who was a young knight and sixth family holder of the High Steward of Scotland. This marriage produced a son Robert Stewart who was to later become Robert II, King of Scotland (1371-90). Robert's birth was considered something of a miracle since he was delivered by caesarian section from his mother's body who died after a fall from her horse. (source:Kings and Queens of Scotland).



She married WALTER STEWART, 1315, in SCOTLAND, b. 1293, DUNDAONALD, KYLE, AYRSHIRE,SCOTLAND, (son of JAMES STEWART and UNKNOWN) occupation HIGH STEWARD OF SCOTLAND, d. 9 Apr 1326, BATHGATE CASTLE, W. LOTHIAN, SCOTLAND.



WALTER: The first recorded ancestor of the Stewarts was nobly born Breton named Alan, who was a "daipifer" or steward to the Count of Dol in the late eleventh century. Alan the "dapifer" had a son named Flaad who sought advancement in Britain, where he had land on the Welsh Marshes in the reign of Henry I. Flaad's grandson Walter won the favor of David I, who granted him the barony

Of Renfrew and appointed him High Steward of Scotland. The office became hereditary and hence the Stewart name. Walter was the sixth holder of title.



Children:

4. I ROBERT STEWART II b. Mar-1316.



Fourth Generation



4. ROBERT STEWART II, b. Mar-1316, PAISLEY, RENFREWSHIRE, SCOTLAND, occupation KING OF SCOTLAND, d. 14 Aug 1390, CASTLE of DUNDONALD, AYRSHIRE, SCOTLAND, buried: 1390, SCONE ABBEY, PERTHSHIRE, SCOTLAND.

When Robert II came to throne, a fourteen years' truce with England still had twelve years to run, though unofficial warfare on the border continued with England. Full scale war broke out in 1385 as a by-product of the Hundred Years' War between England and France. Scotland became involved through assistance to France. Throughout this period Robert II was ever weak in his control of the state. In 1384 he appointed his heir John, Earl of Carrick, to enforce authority on his behalf.



He married (1) ELIZABETH MURE, CIRCA 1336, in SCOTLAND, b. 1330, ROWALLAN, SCOTLAND, (daughter of SIR ADAM MURE of ROWALLAN and UNKNOWN) occupation QUEEN, d. CIRCA 1355, SCOTLAND.



ELIZABETH: Elizabeth was Robert II's first wife, to whom he was related within the "forbidden degrees" of kinship. This required a papal dispensation to have their marriage and heirs recognized by the church and state. Robert II and Elizabeth may not have at first known of this requirement, for it was some years after the birth of their children that they applied for dispensation. This became a growing concern of Robert II's second family and heirs from his marriage to Euphemia of Ross following Elizabeth's death.

John, Earl of Carrick, moved to the throne as Robert III. Robert III was considered a weak ruler. He delegated much of his authority to his brother, Robert, Earl of Fife (later Duke of Albany and Governor of Scotland). In 1393 Robert III decided to resume his responsibilities and relieved his brother of authority. In 1399 Robert III delegated his authority to his eldest son David, Duke of Rothesay. In 1401 David, who had proven himself incompetent to govern & refused to resign at his father's request was arrested and placed in his brother Robert's custody where he died in 1406.

Robert, Earl of Fife and later Duke of Albany and Goveror of Scotland, was a man of ruthless ambition. His brother Robert III allowed him authority to run the affairs of state until 1393 when King Robert III reassumed his royal responsibilities for the next six years. Robert III then delegated his authority to his eldest son David. In 1401 David had proven to be so incompetent Robert III had him arrested and placed in custody of his brother Robert where he died. His brother the Duke was suspected to be responsible.

From the age of eleven to the age of twenty-nine King James I had lived in England, sometimes a prisoner in the Tower and sometimes a participant in the life of the Court. In 1424 he returned to Scotland with his new Queen and set about to restore order and law in his country. Perth became his favorite place of residence.

of Atholl, the younger son of Euphemia of Ross, on the throne. On 20 Feb.1437 conspirators stabbed James to death in his bedchambers. Executions followed.

When Robert Stewart Duke of Albany died at the age of about eighty-one, his son Murdock Stewart succeeded him as Governor of Scotland. His attempt at governing foundered after four years of futile misrule. In 1424 King James I, his cousin, returned to Scotland after eighteen years of imprisonment in England. Since James I's kingship had been at risk while imprisoned in

England, he did not intend for it to be threatened upon his return to Scotland. In 1425 he ordered Murdock & his two sons beheaded at Sterling.
