:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "STEWART of Atholl"

The first Stewart earl of Atholl was John of Balveny, son of Sir James Stewart 'Black Knight of Lorn' and Jane, widow of King James I of Scotland. But, around the same time, most of the Atholl clan sprang from five sons of Sir Alexander Stewart, fourth son of Robert II, and most markedly remembered as the fierce 'Wolf of Balenoch,' who died 1404.

:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "STUART of Bute"

The beautiful Isle of Bute formed part of the domain of Walter, the first High Steward, and remained a Stewart possession except for a brief Norse occupation. But only after 1385 did a family branch become established there, when Sir John Stewart a son of King Robert II was appointed hereditary Sheriff of Bute and Arran: and his descendants still hold the marquisant of Bute.
The spelling Stuart originated with some Stewarts living in France where the alphabet has no 'w.' Adopted there also by Mary Queen of Scots, it became fashsionable when she continuied using it on her return. Steuart was a compromise between the two forms.

:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "SUTHERLAND"

The Clan Sutherland is an early branch from Clan Murray, as there mentioned. In 1197 Hugh, a grandson of Freskin de Moravia, [ see "DOUGLAS" p.54 ] was granted by William the Lion the southern portion of Caithness, named 'Sudrland' while previously under Norse occupation. Hugh's son William, who died at Dunrobin Castle in 1248, was created Earl of Sutherland, which earldom remains the oldest extant in Britain.
The clan, of whom many retained the name Murray, was much embroiled in feuds with neighbours until a Peace of 1591, yet figured with distinction at Bannockburn and other national battles. In the Jacobite times they took the side of government along with old rivals like the MacKays, and in contrast to their own parent clan. In 1800 they formed the 93rd or Sutherland Highlanders--the 'Thin Red Line' of Balacava--that was joined with the Argyllshires in 1881.
