He was the oldest child of Joan Beaufort, widow of James I of Scotland, and her second husband Sir James Stewart, the Black Knight of Lorn. He became Earl of Atholl in or before 1457.
John was married twice. By his first wife, Margaret Douglas he had six daughters:
By his second wife, Eleanor Sinclair he had the following children:
John, 2nd Earl of Atholl, m. Janet Campbell.
Andrew, Bishop of Caithness.
Jean, m. Sir Robert Gordon of Pitlurgo. Source: Scotts Peerage under Atholl> and/or James Arbuthnott of Arbuthnott Sources: Scots Peerage V. 1 p 308 under Arbuthnott and Douglas Richardson.
Elspeth, m. Robert Innes of Innermarky.
Marjory, m Sir Colin Campbell of Glenurchy.
Margaret, m. m Sir William Murray of Tullibardine.
Isabel, m. Alexander Robertson of Struan.
Elisabeth, m.1 John Stuart, Earl of Lennox and m.2 Ninian Lord Ross.
Christian, m. Neil Stuart of Garth.
Margaret or Isabel, m. Robert Robertson of Struan.
There are conflicts among the reputable sources about which wife had which daughters (Catherine and Jean), and in one case (Jean) the name of her husband. One Jean is assigned to two husbands, not necessarily incorrectly, but with no indication she had two husbands. It is even possible that there were three daughters, some incorrectly translated in English as Jean. There is a primary source quoted in Scots Peerage that makes one Jean clearly wife of Arbuthnott. Richardson in "Royal Ancestry" agrees. No secondary source quotes a primary source for Catherine. Richardson quotes a very reputable secondary source (Andrew MacEwen in "The Genealogist" (USA) Vol 2 Issue1) about Sinclair, but that article is silent about this question. In a private message he states he cannot at this time provide a reason for his choice, and Mr. MacEwen, the expert on these matters, died before he could be contacted.

The text refers to Margaret (Stewart-1620) m. Sir William Murray of Tullibardine. However, when you click on that link it doesn't give a husband. However, when you click on Stewart-9840 is gives as husband WIlliam Murray (Murray-3842), Lord of Castleton, son of the 9th Lord of Tallibardine.
It also shows that their children were born in 1495, 1498, 1500 and 1502. This means the younger daughter couldn't be the mother.
Does this mean: a) They are the same person, or b) The link in the text is to the wrong daughter, or c) The wrong daughter has been linked to William Murray?
