Biography

m. 7 Isabel MacDougall de Ergardia P: Scotland

B: ABT 1362 D: BEF 09 APR 1388 P: ancient district/Lorne, Argyll and Bute, Scotland P: D: 21 DEC 1439 P: ancient district/Lorne, Argyll and Bute, Scotland

Sir John Stewart of Innermeath. He exchanged with his brother Robert the lands of Durrisdeer for the lordship of Lorn, to which the latter succeeded through his wife Janet De Ergadia. He is designed Lord Of Lorn in 1407. Douglas and the older writers state that his wife was Isobel De Ergadia, daughter and co-heiress of Eugene, or John, Lord Of Lorn. This has been doubted by Mr. Sinclair and Mr Joseph Bain. But they do not seem to have noticed that his wife's name was certainly Isobel, that she died 21 December 1439, and that her son James, the Black Knight of Lorn, needed a dispensation to allow him to marry the Queen-Dowager Joanna Beaufort, being 'within the third and third and fourth and fourth, and the third and fourth degree of consanguinity and affinity,' relationships which can be reconciled with the statement of Douglas, as the wife of John, Lord Of Lorn, was Joanna, daughter of Thomas De Ysak and Matilda, daughter of King Robert I (Bruce). John Stewart, Knight, Lord Of Lorn, 'kinsman of Robert, Duke Of Albany' and Isabella his wife obtained from Benedict XIII, anti-pope a dispensation dated at Peniscola 23 December 1418 for a plenary indulgence at the hour of death, for licence to choose a confessor, and for a portable altar. He died 26 April 1421. [The Scots Peerage V:2]

Many duplications for Isobel Egardia led to me finding a conflict. If she was born 1362, she cannot be the mother of a child born 1366. She is shown being married to at two two men of the same name, but many decades apart. She probably is one of these ladies.
