    Elizabeth (died Nov 1429), younger daughter and coheir of D uncan, 8th Earl of Lennox (beheaded 1425). [Burke's Peerag e]

    -----------------

    Elizabeth, the Countess Isabel's other [than Margaret] sist er, m. about Feb 1391/2 Sir John Stuart of Darnley, co. Ren frew (slain 12 Feb 1428/9, at the siege of Orleans). She d . in Nov 1429, leaving a son and heir, Sir Alan Stuart of D arnley (slain 1439), who had a son and heir John, who event ually succeeded as Earl of Lennox.

    The heirs themselves contended and their partisans in recen t times have fought over the question of the seniority of t he two sisters Margaret Menteith and Elizabeth Stuart. Tha t Margaret was the elder is proved (a) by the grant of th e Countess Isabel in 1451 to the Friars Preachers of Glasgo w made with consent of Margaret "widow of the late Lord Rus ky"; and (b) by the decision in favour of her heir, John Ha ldane, by the King, the Lords of the Council and other baro ns of the realm, 12 Jan 1475/6, as mentioned below. Margar et's heirs were entitled each to one-half of one-half of th e earldom, the elder of them, John Haldane, having right t o the seniority; the heir of Elizabeth was entitled to th e other half. The inheritance for which they fought (but n ot the title) was actually in enjoyment of the King's favou rite, Andrew Stuart, Lord Avondale, eldest (illegitimate) s on of a son of the Duke of Albany and the countess Isablel , till his death in 1488, when John Stuart, Lord Darnley, w as recognized as Earl of Lennox.
