  • Notes 
    • of Dereneley
      Seigneur d'Aubigny
      Sir John succeeded his father in the feudal Barony of Darnley. On 11 December 1406 he was a witness to a charter in which his mother granted lands in Galston to her son Andrew Hamilton, a son from the first marriage of his mother.

      In 1421 he took 4,000 Scots to fight the English in France at the Dauphin's special request. Also in 1421 he captured Edmund Beaufort, later Duke of Somerset, at the battle of Beaugé. He then became Seigneur of Concressault and Aubigny in reward for his services.

      In 1423, at Crevant, he lost an eye and was captured by Lord Salisbury but was ransomed. From 1424 he was Constable of the Scots in command of all Scottish troops in France. About 1426 he was granted the County of Evreux as a Comté-pairie and given the right to quarter the Royal Arms of France. In 1428 he was joint French Ambassador to Scotland.

      He held Orléans against the English but, on 12 February 1429, was killed at the battle of Rouvray. His branch of the family were the first to use the French spelling Stuart rather than Stewart, though there was no consistent spelling of surnames.
