About Andrew Stewart Grant of Ballachastle, Sheriff of Bute

Andrew Grant of Stratherrick, alias Stewart (c1295-1335), 5th Lord of Stratherrick. Parents unknown. He married Maud or Marjorie, the Grant heiress and under the terms of the marriage bond took her surname.

I'm leaving the previous work in this section here for now -- the Revisions history and the About Me sections both point to some of the difficulties with this profile, almost all of which have been because THIS Andrew Stewart, who was of unimportant origins but married into the Grants and took their name, has been confused with the Andrew Stewart, son of John the Black Stewart and Janet Symple, who was born almost a hundred years later. They are not the same. Please do not merge them any more.


--------------------------------------------

Problems with this profile:

  1. He was born about 1295 and died (about) 1335 and had children.
  2. His supposed parents were born 1350 and 1338 respectively.
  3. Peerage shows he was born c1376.
  4. His wife would have be about 80 and still had no children.
  5. No sources provide any wife or children for him.
