From the wiki entry for her father, James Stewart, 1st Earl of Buchan:

Before 1467 James Stewart married Margaret Ogilvie, the heiress of Sir Alexander Ogilvie of Auchterhouse.[1] They were parents to two children:
- Alexander Stewart, 2nd Earl of Buchan (d. 1505)
- Isabel Stewart of Buchan, a mistress of James IV of Scotland, and mother of Lady Janet Stewart, who was in turn a mistress of Henry II of France.

Buchan had several illegitimate children with his mistress Margaret Murray (b. ca. 1446), many of whom were later legitimized by a royal charter issued in 1488–1489.
- James Stewart,[5] 1st Laird of Traquair (1480–1513), was the founder of the Traquair family. He was gifted the Traquair estate by his father in 1491. He obtained letters of legitimation, and married the heiress of the Rutherfords, with whom he received the estates of Rutherford and Wells in Roxburghshire.[5] He was killed at the Battle of Flodden Field.[5] He was the ancestor of John Stewart, 1st Earl of Traquair.
- Lady Agnes Stewart, married first Adam Hepburn, 2nd Earl of Bothwell in August 1511, secondly Alexander Home, 3rd Lord Home, thirdly John Maxwell, 4th Lord Maxwell and fourthly Cuthbert Ramsay.[6] They had at least eight children. Adam Hepburn, 2nd Earl of Bothwell was killed at the Battle of Flodden Field on 9 September 1513, she died in February, 1557.
