     The change between Stewart and Stuart took place when Mary, Queen of Scots married the Dauphin, later Francois II of France. The French spelled her surname 'Stuart', and when she returned, a widow, to Scotland, after 13 years in France, she kept the spelling, which her various half-siblings and cousins gradually adopted. She married one of the cousins, so her son was also a Stuart.
