[…] He is often called 'of Bonkyl' in secondary sources. However, this is incorrect, as he died before his father-in-law, Sir Alexander Bonkyl, and therefore did not possess that barony." [The Ancestry of Charles II, King of England (citation details below)]

    Notes:

    Also called Alexander of Dundonald. 4th High Steward of Scotland. "4th High Steward of Scotland, 1246-1283 and Baron of Garlies from 30 Nov 1263. [...] Councillor in 1255 to the underage King of Scotland, Alexander III, and one of the regents of Scotland. Upon his marriage he seized the Isles of Bute and Arran and as a result fought and defeated the Norwegians at the battle of Largs, in Cunningham, 2 Oct 1263, ceding the Isles to Scotland. In 1264 he invaded the Isle of Man which was then annexed to the Crown." [The Ancestry of Dorothea Poyntz, citation details below.]

    "He seems to have commanded the armed force which, at Largs, in October 1263, successfully defended Scotland against attempted invasion by Hákon IV, king of Norway. It seems to have been in Alexander's time that the Stewarts acquired the lordship of Cowal, with a castle at Dunoon. Moreover, the style senescallus Scotie, 'stewart of Scotland', now replaced the older dapifer regis Scotie, 'steward of the king of Scotland', thus indicating a major office of state, significant in a national context." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography]

    Alexander married Jean Macrory. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    "One of the barons of Scotland attending the Parliament at Brigham who confirmed the Treaty of Salisbury with England, 14 Mar 1289/90." [John P. Ravilious, citation details below]

    He is known to have been married to a Christiana, probably Christiana de Lilleburn, widow of Sir Thomas de Fenwick who d. 1275, herself known to have been living in 1318, but she was probably not the mother of his daughter Margaret.

    Children:
    1. 3. Margaret de Bonkil died before 20 Jul 1305.


Generation: 4

  1. 8.  Walter Stewart was born about 1198 (son of Alan fitz Walter and Eva); died in 1241.

    Notes:

    Also spelled Walter Steward; also called Walter Fitz Alan. 3rd High Steward. Justiciar of Scotia (i.e. Scotland north of the Forth), 1232-1241. First to use Stewart as a surname.

    "He was appointed Justiciar of Scotland by Alexander II in 1230, and negotiated that king's second marriage. He is said by Duncan Stewart to have married Beatrix, daughter of Gilchrist, Earl of Angus, but no proof has been found of this." [The Scots Peerage, citation details below]

    The Complete Peerage entry for Walter Stewart's son-in-law Maldouen, third earl of Lennox (7:589-90), states without qualification that Maldouen's wife Elizabeth was a daughter of Walter Steward, High Steward of Scotland, by Beatrice, daughter of Gilchrist, Earl of Angus, but although no correction to this appears in CP 14, the corrigenda volume, it would appear that the modern consensus is that the identity of Walter Stewart/Steward's wife is unproved.

    Children:
    1. Walter le Stewart died before 1297.
    2. 4. Alexander Stewart was born in 1214; died in 1283.

  2. 10.  James Macrory (son of Angus); died in 1210.

    Notes:

    "James, the son of Angus, had a daughter Jean, who married Alexander, eldest son of Walter, Steward of Scotland." [The Scots Peerage, citation details below]

    The Ancestry of Dorothea Poyntz calls him "James of Bute" and says he was "[k]illed in 1210 in Scotland with his father and brothers by the men of Skye", which accords with SP's sketch of his father.

    Children:
    1. 5. Jean Macrory

  3. 12.  Adam de Bonkil was born about 1220 in of Bonkil, Berwickshire, Scotland (son of Alexander de Bonkil).
