About Margaret Abernathy Stewart, de Menteith

Margaret de Menteith

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Margaret de Menteith (fl 1311–1324) was a daughter of Alexander, Earl of Menteith and his wife Matilda. She was the wife of Alexander de Abernethy, a noted Scottish knight and opponent of Robert I of Scotland. She is first encountered in historical records as "lady Margaret de Abrenythy", a lady of the court of Isabella of France, Queen of England, in 1311/12. She resided in England as late as 30 January 1324/5, when the Calendar of Patent Rolls recorded the grant by King Edward II of England: "Licence for Margaret de Abernythyn to go to Scotland to treat with her friends for the recovery of the lands of her inheritance in Scotland."

Her identity as a daughter of Alexander, Earl of Menteith was first proposed in 2003. Andrew B. W. MacEwen found proof of this identification in 2006, which was published in The Scottish Genealogist in September 2010.

Her issue by Sir Alexander de Abernethy includes two daughters:

Margaret de Abernethy, wife of John Stewart, Earl of Angus; and Mary de Abernethy, wife of (1) Sir Andrew de Leslie and (2) Sir David de Lindsay.
