I'm not pre-1500 certified, but here's an article about Sir William Wallace from Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Wallace

The profile is a fictionalized version of Wallace.  It comes with a fictitious pedigree for the Hays of Yester.  Naturally they have made-up wives from famous families.  One of them is given Wallace's sister.

Their son fights alongside Wallace and then marries Bruce's sister.

https://archive.org/stream/genealogieofhaye1835hayr#page/13/

The genealogy connects with reality in section 11, the reality being that an obscure knight Sir Gilbert Hay suddenly found himself married to a Fraser girl whose brothers had all just become horizontal war heroes.

 

Wikipedia states William Wallace has no children. Wikitree says he has a daughter. Interesting, given that I've seen a family tree on one of those other sites which would make me a descendant. Genealogy or mythology???? If this profile is fiction, should it still be here?
Scottish traditionalists give him one possibly illegitimate daughter.

I think that profile is for someone else and not Braveheart who has a profile at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Wallace-182

I am sure that there are many William Wallice's out there and the one in your example has no dates as well as different parent names.
