About Margaret fitz Walter


It is not certain but it seems quite likely, probable even, that Margaret [ Stewart ], here treated, is the daughter of Walter son of Alan, the first hereditary steward of Scotland, and his wife Eschina of London, alias Eschina of Molle. Her name is noticed in a charter by which her mother confirms that she has given one ploughgate of land at Molle, in Roxburghshire, to the monks of Paisley. The charter is undated but Walter son of Alan is the principal witness and so it must belong to the period between the foundation of Paisley Priory in c. 1163 and Walter's death in 1177. Margaret herself died before the charter was issued and it would appear that she was buried in the chapter house of the Priory of Paisley: "Margarete filie mee que apud Passelet in capitulo jacet sepulta". Paisley Registrum: 74-5

Margaret [Stewart], here treated may sometimes have been confused with Marjory Stewart who is said to have married Robert de Montgomery Memorials of the Montgomeries I: pp. 7-8
