Sir John Wallace of Craigie and Riccarton (b c1350)
'The Book of Wallace' suggests that Sir John married a Lady Margaret Stewart. 'The Book of Wallace' and 'The Wallace Papers' identify his wife as Margaret Douglas, daughter of James Douglas of Dalkeith, 'The Book of Wallace' specifying that her mother was Agnes Dunbar, which we disagree with as TSP (Morton) does not show them as having a daughter called Margaret whilst, although James did have a natural daughter called Margaret, she married someone else. Following another report in TSP (Morton), we show his wife, and presumed mother of his sons, as a different Margaret Douglas as follows ...
