This profile cites thepeerage.com as a source, but that website does not support the information shown here. According to thepeerage.com, John Stewart, 1st Erl of Atholl, married twice. By his first wife, Lady Margaret Douglas, he had a daughter, Lady Jean Stewart, who did in 1510, and was married to Alexander Gordon, 3rd Earl of Huntly. They had children, none of them named Marjorie or anything near to it. By his second wife, Lady Eleanor Sinclair, the Earl was father of Lady Janet Stewart, who married James Arbuthnot of that Ilk, again had children, none of them named Marjorie or anything similar. By this second wife, he also had a daughter shown by the name of Lady Jean Stewart, who married Robert Gordon, 3rd of Auchleuchries and 1st of Pitlurg, and they also had no children named Marjorie. Even if you take into account the many ways the name Johanna/Joanna/Janet/Jean was used in 15th and 16th Century Scotland, and the plethora of daughters, and more than one man named Gordon, it's clear there is a problem of fact here, rather than one of style or opinion. Since I am one of the many, many people who show up as being a descendant of John of Gaunt by this chain of descent, if it is incorrect, I would like it to be corrected. I don't want to to be seen as accepting such a pedigree if it is not accurate, even in the most passive manner.
