  Marriage Notes:

"Sir James Stewart, the Black Knight of Lorn, younger son of Sir John Stewart of Lorn and Innermeath. Being a handsome, graceful young man, he was selected by Joanna, dowager of King James I., as her second husband, and their nuptials took place in 1439. The Queen and he being within the third and third and fourth and fourth and the third and fourth degrees of consanguinity and affinity, they received a dispensation as James Stewart and Johanna 'Berrford,' in the diocese of St. Andrews, to ratify the marriage, from Pope Eugenius IV. 21 September 1439, but with the condition that whichever spouse survived should remain unmarried. The marriage was very unpopular."
