Biographical Summaries

                   1

Sir William Stewart was ancestor to the Earl of Galloway. He was a favorite knight of King James II and was knighted by King James III about 1443. Sir William was a member of parliament as a feudal baron in 1467. After much opposition from other relatives of Sir John Turnbull, William obtained, in 1429, possession of the lands of Minto in right of his grandfather Sir William Stewart, Knight Banneret. From a charter of the lands of Glasserton in possession of descendants of the Earl of Galloway, it appears that Sir William was alive on 31 October 1479. He was married more than once.

His last wife was Euphame Graham, supposedly of the Menteith family. She survived him as late as 1493 when she shows up in the records of parliament as purser in a civil cause against Sir Alexander Stewart of Garlies, knight.

Notes

"Second of Garlies in this line, is believed to be identical with the 'Willielmus Stewart, scutifer,' who witnessed a charter in favour of Sir John Stewart of Darnley on 17 July 1428. He appears as 'Sir William Stewart, Knight, in a grant of the Kirk of Kirkmaho to the Cathedral of Glasgow made by his mother in 1429, with the consent of himselt as her 'son and heir,' and of her husband Sir John Forrester of Corstorphine." [3]

Obtained the lands of Minto in 1429, after much opposition from the Turnbulls, the former possessors.

He died after 1479. He lived at Garlies, Scotland.
