"He (John Fleming) married, secondly, before 13 February 1508-9 Margaret Stewart, eldest daughter of Matthew, second Earl of Lennox ; a charter under the Great Seal being granted on that date to her and the heirs to be procreated betwixt her and John, Lord Fleming, of the lands of Biggar and Thankertoun. In 1508-9 John
Fleming, son to Boghall, was denounced for rape on her. She was thereafter divorced from her husband by the Archbishop of Glasgow, and a papal dispensation for their re-marriage granted on 17 December 1509, they being in the fourth degree of consanguinity and of affinity. They were again divorced before 25 October 1515, on the ground that one James Lindsay, cousin-german to Lord Fleming, had known her before marriage."
