    EARLDOM OF ATHOLL [SCT] (XXI, 2) 1512

    JOHN (STEWART), EARL OF ATHOLL [Scotland], son and heir by 2nd wife. He married Janet, 3rd daughter of Archibald (CAMPBELL), 2nd EARL OF ARGYLL [Scotland], by Elizabeth, 1st daughter of John (STEWART), 1st EARL OF LENNOX [Scotland]. He is usually said to have been slain 9 September 1513, at the battle of Flodden, but he did not die till 1521. His widow died about 2 February 1545/6. [Complete Peerage I:313, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]


    The Scots Peerage, at 1:336 and 1:443, says that the wife of the 2nd Earl of Atholl was Janet Campbell, not Mary. In the SP article on Campbell, Earl of Argyll, at 1:337 after enumerating all the children of Archibald (including Janet), SP mentions "another daughter Mary, said to have been married to James Stewart, 4th Laird of Bute, without issue".
