Marriage to Alexander Stewart

This cannot be right
"In 1374 the castle's heiress Isobel was seized and married by Alexander Stewart, who then laid claim to Kildrummy and the title of Earl of Mar. In 1435 it was taken over by James I, becoming a royal castle until being granted to Lord Elphinstone in 1507."

She was married, until 1402 when he was killed, to Sir Malcolm Drummond, son of Sir John Drummond, 11th of Lennox and Mary Montifex. She appears to have married Alexander Stewart in December 1404. Certainly she signed a number of charters in 1404 before signing her marriage contract.

Further to the above, and to the request for disambiguation, Alexander Stewart was an illegitimate son of Alexander Stewart, Earl of Buchan and probably Mairead inghean Eachann. He was born in about 1375, hence the date of marriage must be wrong. Shipsview (talk) 09:30, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
