  • Note:

    James Stewart, son of James, Earl of Buchan, was granted the lands of Traquair, Peeblesshire.
    He fell at Flodden 1513.
    Legitimated 1489
    He married the heiress of Rutherford, and had a son William, of Traquair.
    Married 9 Nov 1505 Catherine Rutherford.
    His descendants, the Maxwell Stuarts, still live at Traquair, which they describe as ?the oldest inhabited house in Scotland.?
    The Traquair Papers, now examined, fully verify the transfer of the property from Rogers to the Earl of Buchan, who did not, as is generally alleged, receive the lands as a gift from the king, his relative, James III. Buchan had an especial object in buying the lands. It was to bestow them on his natural son, James Stewart, who had a charter of Traquair from his father in 1491. This, the first of the Stewarts of Traquair (who received letters of legitimation), perished at Flodden,
    leaving a son, William, in whom the estate was largely extended.
