named locally ‘John Mourach’ or ‘Lipper’ John.’

He resigned his lands into the hands of the Crown and had a charter of the lordship of Lorn, the barony of Innermeath, and the lands of Redcastle, 20 June 1452, to himself and the heirs-male of his body, whom failing to Walter, Alan, David, and Robert Stewart, his brothers, Archibald Stewart, his uncle, Sir James Stewart, knight, and Thomas Stewart, his cousin, and the heirs-male of their bodies respectively.

He died at Dunstaffnage 20 December 1463 from wounds inflicted by Alan M’Coule, against whom an Act of Parliament was passed in 1464.

He had three daughters, whose seniority is a matter of controversy:

1. Isabel, married to Colin, first Earl of Argyll.
2. Jonet, married to Sir Colin campbell of Glenurchy, who received, in March 1448-49, a charter of the five-merk land of Letterbean and others, from John Stewart, Lord of Lorn.
3. Marion, married to Arthur campbell of otter;

and a natural son,

Dougal, who obtained the lands of Appin, and was ancestor of the Stewarts of Appin.
