Hi Stanton,

If you go to the 14th generation you will find Janet Stewart, Lady Fleming. She is the illegitimate daughter of King James IV of Scotland. Agnes Stewart is her mother, so Janet is a Stewart Stewart. She was the governess of Mary, Queen of Scots, and her daughter, Mary, was one of the ‘Four Marys’ her attended her.
