  ** TSP reported only James's marriage to Egidia Burgh. For some time, trusting TSP, we showed Egidia as mother of Walter, 6th Steward. It was not until a contributor (EN, 26.04.06) kindly pointed out that this is disputed, not least because it has been reported that Walter was born some years before James married Egidia, that we investigated further and found that, whilst many agree with TSP, it seems accepted by some (but not all) of the web sites that we have some faith in (eg. 'RoyalData' does) that the mother of Walter was in fact Cecilia of Dunbar. We follow this suggestion PROVISIONALLY and with some reservation because it seems surprising that TSP should make such a mistake on what, for many Scottish genealogists, is an important matter. Our concern is not eased by the fact that some of the web sites that identify Cecilia as mother of Walter have clearly made a mistake on the identity of Cecilia's own mother. This will be subjected to further review in due course!! **
