"The sixth Earl had also a natural son George, who was for some time commendator of Arbroath. He is said to
have taken a leading part in the murder of David Riccio. He was chosen Bishop of Moray in 1573, and held that office till his death about 1590."

HIS MOTHER

Some suggest that the daughter of James Stewart of Traquair was his mother, but there does not appear to be a consensus on this. All are agreed he was not legitimate.
