About Sir James Stewart, III, 1st Earl of Traquair

http://www.thepeerage.com/p2501.htm#i25009


Buchan had several illegitimate children with his mistress Margaret Murray (b. ca. 1446), many of whom were later legitimized by a royal charter issued in 1488–1489.[citation needed]

James Stewart,[5] 1st Laird of Traquair (1480–1513),[citation needed] was the founder of the Traquair family. He was gifted the Traquair estate by his father in 1491. He obtained letters of legitimation, and married the heiress of the Rutherfords, with whom he received the estates of Rutherford and Wells in Roxburghshire.[5] He was killed at the Battle of Flodden Field.[5] He was the ancestor of John Stewart, 1st Earl of Traquair.
