  Marriage Notes:

from Scots Peerage (vol 5) 1

Mary next married Sir James HAMILTON 1st Lord Hamilton, 6th of Cadzow, son of Sir James HAMILTON 5th of Cadzow and Janet LIVINGSTON of Callendar, about February-March 1573.1 (Sir James HAMILTON 1st Lord Hamilton, 6th of Cadzow was born about 1415 2 and died on 6 November 1479 2 3.)


  Marriage Notes:

"She (Mary Stewart) was ... confined at Kilmarnock, and the Earl, her husband, summoned to appear within sixty days, which he failing to do, his marriage with the King's sister was declared null and void, and she was compelled to marry James, Lord Hamilton. According to Ferrerius, Buchanan, and other old historians, this took place in 1469, but the correct date was probably February or March 1473-74."
