Alexander married Daughter STEWART, daughter of Alexander STEWART of Dundonald, 4th High Steward of Scotland, Regent and Jean.1 (Daughter STEWART was born about 1265.)

  Marriage Notes:

"There is reason to believe that his wife was a sister of James, Steward of Scotland." (page 9)

Sir James de Lindsay, Lord of Crawford and Kirkmichael. (grandson of Sir Alexander Lindsay) He had been a hostage for King David n. in 1351, and appears first in Parliament 1357. He was appointed an ambassador to England as Dominus de Crawford 1357, but died before 11 November 1358. He married Egidia, daughter of Walter, Steward of Scotland, and half-sister of King Robert II. A papal dispensation for this marriage was granted at Avignon 3 Ides of April 1346, which describes the spouses as within the third and fourth degree on the father's side, and in the fourth degree on the mother's. A strong inference thus arises that Sir James's grandmother, wife of Sir Alexander, was daughter to the Steward." (page 11)
