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

    EARLDOM of ANGUS (XVI, 3) 1361

    Margaret Stewart, suo jure Countess of Angus, eldest sister and heir of the line. She m. between 1361 and 1374, as his 2nd wife, Thomas, 13th (sic. 9th) Earl of Mar, the last Earl of Mar in the direct male line, who dsp. 1377. Probably in her husband's lifetime, but certainly very shortly afterwards, she became mother of a son known as George Douglas, begotten by her late husband's brother-in-law, William Douglas, 1st Earl of Douglas, whose wife Margaet, suo jure Countess of Mar (being sister and heir of Thomas, 13th Earl of Mar abovenamed), was then alive, and outlived her husband. On 9 Apr 1389 the Countess of Angus resigned the Earldom (reserving for herself the frank tenement thereof for life) in favour of the said George Douglas, not however, then styling him her son or alleging any relationship to him; though in his marriage contract with the King's daughter, some eight years afterwards, she styles him "Lord of Angus" and acknowledges him as her son. She, however, survived her said son, and was living 1417, being styled "Countess of Angus and Mar", (viz. Angus in her own right and Mar in right of her long deceased, and only husband); but (of course) never styled "Countess of Douglas" as the wife of that Earl of Douglas (who was the father of her children) survived him. She d. before 23 Mar 1417/8. [Complete Peerage I:154]

    Note: According to BP (above) & CP VIII:406 (Earldom of Mar), Margaret's husband was the 9th Earl.
