Elizabeth Stuart, 2nd Countess of Moray
On 23 January 1581 she married James Stewart, son of James Stewart, 1st Lord Doune, and they had five children: The wedding was celebrated on 31 January in Fife with a tournament of "running at the ring" and James VI of Scotland took part. Two day after the party came to Leith, where a water pageant culminated with an assault on a pasteboard Papal Castel Sant'Angelo, built on boats on the water of Leith. Some of her father's friends relatives thought the Lord Doune's son was not of sufficient status to marry her.
She died in childbirth in 1591.
Her children included:
- Grizel Stewart, married Robert Innes, 1st Baronet Innes, by whom she had issue.
- Margaret Stewart (1591 – 4 August 1639), married firstly as his second wife Charles Howard, 1st Earl of Nottingham, by whom she had issue; and secondly William Monson, Viscount Monson
- James Stewart, 3rd Earl of Moray (before 1591 – 6 August 1638), who married Lady Anne Gordon, by whom he had issue, including James Stewart, 4th Earl of Moray
