About Dugald Maclaurin Stewart, 1st of Appin

1470 Dugald Maclaurin Stewart marries Isabella daughter of MacDougall of MacDougall, the unfortunate Chief against whom Alan MacCoul rebelled.

Throughout time there had always been a strong bond between the MacLarens and the Stewarts of Appin and Ardvorlich. Each swore to come to the assistance of the other in times of need, especially when the MacGregors were involved. By extension, others from Strathearn who were allied with the Stewarts, joined in because, they too, were anxious about the warlike MacGregors. The union between the Stewarts and the MacLarens had been cemented when Sir John Stewart of Lorn, although married, passed a pleasant evening with a daughter of MacLaren of Ardveich. One might infer it was a night of unholy wedlock. A child, Dugald, was subsequently born, and he became in time Chief of the Stewarts. This occurred when Sir John’s wife died in 1463 and sent word to his lady in Ardveich that she and her son join him at Dunstaffnage Castle for the wedding. No doubt it was a merry affair, and was only marred by the fact that the bridegroom-to-be was stabbed to death as he walked across the chapel lawn to the ceremony. This called for some hasty action, and the ceremony was hurried through with Sir John’s last act being to slip the ring on to the bride’s finger, before expiring. His assailant was Alan MacDougall who coveted the Stewart lands of Lorn.
