Life He was the oldest child of Joan Beaufort, widowed Queen of James I of Scotland, and her second husband Sir James Stewart, the Black Knight of Lorn. He was created Earl of Atholl in around 1457, the first Earl of the eighth creation of the title. He is believed to have had a hand in suppressing the rebellion of John Macdonald, 11th Earl of Ross, the last of the Lords of the Isles. According to legend, the Earl of Atholl had whisky, honey and oats added to Macdonald's well, which so entranced or intoxicated him that Macdonald was easily captured. The mixture became a drink named Atholl Brose. Stewart was buried in Dunkeld Cathedral in Perthshire. Marriage and childrenJohn Stewart married twice, and had several children. However, the exact number, names and the attribution of his children to their mothers is unclear. He married first, in 1459-1460, Margaret Douglas, Fair Maid of Galloway, daughter of Archibald Douglas, 5th Earl of Douglas. Margaret had been married already to the 8th Earl and possibly the 9th Earl of Douglas. She died between 1473 and 1475.

At least nine children were born: John Stewart, 2nd Earl of Atholl- married Janet Campbell d.1545/6, daughter of Archibald Campbell, 2nd Earl of Arygll, and Elizabeth Stewart, daughter of John Stewart, 1st Earl of Lennox. Andrew Stewart, Bishop of Caithness Jean Stewart, married by contract dated 31 August 1507, James Arbuthnott of Arbuthnott, who had a Crown Charter of the feudal barony of Arbuthnott on 29 January 1507.
