There are two charters of Robert II, the first dated at Perth, 6th April 1374, granting Durisder, on the resignation of Sir Alexander Menzies of Redehall, to sir robert Stewart of Innermeath (also styled of Schanboth, and father of the founder of the Rosyth family); and the second, dated at Stirling on the next day, confirming the resignation of Redehall and Glendochart, made by the same Menzies in favour of the King’s son, Robert, afterwards Duke of Albany. The Menzies family, however, retained enache, for we find a charter, in 1376, confirming that barony to Robert, son of John Menzies, as held by his father.

The Stewarts of Rosyth who held Durisdeer for nearly three centuries, are descended not from sir Jomes Stewart, to whom Robert I granted it before 1329, but from the second son of Sir Robert Stewart of Innermeath and Schanbothy, to whom Robert II granted it after an interval of at least fifty years …
