Maybe familysearch.org could have left the "s" off the end of her Nicola name.

They will change a record when proof is shown.

There is some information about the family here http://www.redbookofscotland.com/Stewart%20of%20Kirkhill%20and%20Strathbrock.htm

It doesn't cite any references but looks like it must have used some church and legal records.
