Footnotes

  • Mary's father Charles Walter Stuart, 12th Lord Blantyre (1818–1900) was a Scottish politician and landowner, who in 1830 at the age of only twelve, succeeded his father. Stuart was appointed a Deputy Lieutenant of Renfrewshire in 1845 and elected a Representative Peer in 1850.

    In 1843, he married Evelyn, daughter of George Sutherland-Leveson-Gower, 2nd Duke of Sutherland. They had five daughters, of whom Mary was the eldest and a son, Walter who died in 1895, and thus the title became extinct.
