"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."
from Scots Peerage 1
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.
