  • 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.
