Walter Stewart

(1292 or 1296 - 9 April 1327)
     Walter was Regent of Scotland. He was born in 1292 or 1296. He was the son of James Stewart, 5th High Steward of Scotland by his spouse Gilles (or Egidia) de Burgh, daughter of Walter de Burgh, 1st Earl of Ulster. Walter's mother is sometimes identified as Cecily or Cecilia de Dunbar, but this identification is erroneous. He was the son of James Stewart 5th High Steward.
     He was Commander at Bannockburn in 1314.
     Walter Stewart married Lady Marjory Bruce, daughter of Robert, the Bruce, King of Scotland and Lady Isabella Mar, before 25 April 1315 in Scotland. John Ravillious wrote: This relationship would have then been in the 3rd and 4th degrees of consanguinity, requiring a dispensation. 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
.
     Walter Stewart married secondly Isabel Graham after 1316 in Scotland. They had 2 sons John & Andrew and a daughter Egidia who married Sir James Lindsay, 2) Sir Hugh Eglinton of that ilk 3) Sir James Douglas of Dalkeith. Walter was 6th High Steward of Scotland.
     Walter died on 9 April 1327 in Bathgate Castle, Scotland.
     The lands of Garlies and Dalswinton were granted to Sir Walter Stewart, descended of Bonkyl, the Garlies grant being just before the death in 1346 at Neville's Cross of John third earl of Moray, as recorded in the introduction to the Galloway charters under GD138, “The earliest charter of Garlies is undated but was in the reign of David II, when John Randolph, Earl of Moray, granted the lands of Garlies, Glenmannoch and Corsok to Sir Walter Stewart the father of the above Marion” who was the heiress who married Sir John Stewart de Foresta. Unfortunately the location of this charter is not recorded, if it still exists, but it is in the list in Appendix ii to Vol i of RMS, no 1260.
