I am not aware of any reference to such a dispensation, for what is one of the most noticed marriages in Scots history. Based on the foregoing, I have indicated in my notes that (A) the marriage of Neil of Carrick and NN le Stewart occurred, but (B) Marjory of Carrick was the daughter of another (likely second) wife of Neil of Carrick.
If anyone has reference to the account for Walter the Stewart in Scots Peerage (probably around I:14 or so), perhaps there's a detail there I'd missed. However, it seems otherwise unlikely that Margaret Stewart was great-grandmother of Marjory Bruce
.
     Marjory died on 2 March 1316/17 in Scotland aged 20. She was thrown from her horse and killed when pregnant. Surgeons cut out the child who was crowned King of Scotland 54 years later, though crippled from the injury of his birth.

     Earl of Carrick by the resignation of his father on 27 Oct 1292 [1294?] [when he refused to pay homage to Balliol] and Lord of Annandale.

     Robert (the) Bruce, king of Scotland. He submitted for a time to Edward I, but joined the patriots after the victory at Stirling. In 1299 a regency was appointed, Bruce and his rival Comyn being at the head of it. For several years Bruce kept up the appearance of loyalty to Edward; but in 1306 he murdered Comyn, and soon after was crowned king at Scone. He was defeated by an English army and fled to the isles, his queen and family being captured and imprisoned. The war was renewed in the following year, but Edward's death delayed the decision of the struggle. Bruce twice invaded England, took almost all the fortresses in Scotland, except Stirling, and in 1314 totally defeated Edward II. at Bannock-burn. Peace was made with England in 1328, and a few months later Bruce died.
.
     Robert, the Bruce, King of Scotland married Lady Isabella Mar, daughter of Donald, 6/10th Earl of Mar, and Ellen of Wales ferch Llywelyn the Great, in 1295 in Scotland.
     Douglas Richardson wrote: In earlier posts on the soc.genealogy.medieval newsgroup, I presented evidence which proved conclusively that Robert de Brus, Earl of Carrick, lord of Annandale (afterwards King Robert [I] de Brus of Scotland) had a previously unknown second marriage by license dated 19 Sept. 1295 to Maud Fitz Alan, widow of Philip Burnell, Knt., of Holgate, Shropshire, and daughter of John Fitz Alan, of Clun and Oswestry, Shropshire. In 1296 Robert de Brus and Maud sued in a plea of dower regarding Maud's English lands. After this date, Maud disappears from Scottish records. I presume therefore that this marriage was terminated by divorce sometime before 1302 (date of Robert's next marriage) on grounds of consanguinity. The two parties were in fact near related to each other in the 4th degree of kindred, by virtue of their common descent from Sir William Marshal, Earl of Pembroke (died 1219). Maud Fitz Alan returned to England, where she and her son, Edward Burnell, were sued in Michaelmas term, 6 Edward II (1312-3) by Henry de Erdington regarding the manor of Wellington, Shropshire. She presented to the church of Great Cheverell, Wiltshire in 1314 and in 1315. Maud married (3rd) sometime before 19 June 1316 Simon de Criketot, who was living 7 March 1320.
In more recent times, I've learned that Maud petitioned the king and council in England in 1302 styled as "Maud, widow of Philip Burnell."
The petition involves certain socages and burgages held in various counties by her late husband, Philip Burnell [Reference: PRO Document, SC 8/313/E63]. Maud was living 19 June 1316, but evidently died sometime shortly before 17 Nov 1326 (death date of her nephew, Edmund de Arundel), as indicated by another petition dated c.1330 submitted
to the king and council by her daughter and son-in-law, Maud and John de Haudlo [Reference: PRO Document, SC 8/52/2570].
As for Maud Fitz Alan's third husband, Simon de Criketot, I find that in 1296, while with the king's army in Scotland, he was attached to answer Robert de Escores on a plea of trespass, regarding which plea he had licence to make an agreement, saving to the marshal his right; they submitted themselves to the arbitration of William Talemasch and
Thomas de Hauville [Reference: Neville "A Plea Roll of Edward I's Army in Scotland, 1296" in Miscellany of the Scottish Hist. Soc. 11 (1990)]. It is tempting to think that Simon de Criketot met Maud Fitz Alan in 1296, when he was in Scotland. If so, perhaps the grounds for Robert de Brus' divorce from Maud Fitz Alan was her abandonment and adultery, not consanguinity at all. Unfortunately for us, the records
of Scottish divorces in this time period have not survived.
For interest's sake, I've copied below an abstract of the petition dated c.1330, which concerns property Maud Fitz Alan received in
marriage from her brother, Richard Fitz Alan, Earl of Arundel. It should be noted that following the death of Maud's brother, Earl Richard Fitz Alan, the Fitz Alan family dropped the surname of Fitz Alan and subsequently went exclusively by the surname (de) Arundel. This explains why Maud's brother is called Richard Fitz Alan, Earl of
Arundel, in the petition below, whereas his son, Edmund, who was known as Edmund de Arundel, is merely called Edmund, Earl of Arundel.

PRO Document, SC 8/52/2570 (abstract of document available online at
http://www.catalogue.nationalarchives.gov.uk)
Petition dated c.1330 by John de Haudlo and Maud his wife to the king and council who state that Philip Burnell and Maud his wife were seised of certain tenements which were given in free marriage by Richard Fitz Alan, Earl of Arundel, Maud's brother; which tenements Maud leased to Edmund Earl of Arundel after Philip's death. Because they ought to descend to Maud de Haudlo, daughter of Maud and Philip, John and Maud brought a writ of formedon against Edmund after Maud's death, but Edmund died while it was being pleaded. The tenements came into the king's hand, and he gave them to Roger de Mortemer, formerly Earl of March. They are now again in the king's hand through his forfeiture, and John and Maud ask him to consider their right, and do justice to them.
Endorsement: The heir of the Earl of Arundel is restored to his lands, because of which they are to be at common law
.
