The Stuarts of Bute are descended from Sir John Stewart, born between 1345 and 1390.  Sir John Stewart was the son of Robert II of Scotland and was known as ‘The Black Stewart’ (either for his dark complexion or because his brother, John of Dundonald was known as ‘The Red Stewart’.
The lands of Bute,  Arran and Cumbrae were made into a county by Robert III and Sir John was made hereditary sheriff to the lands, as set out in a Royal Charter of 1400.
