Marjory Bruce was the daughter of King Robert the Bruce and married Walter, the 6th High Steward of Scotland. Tradition has it that she fell from her horse while riding near Paisley Abbey and was brought here in a seriously injured condition. She was pregnant at the time and, although the baby was saved, Marjory herself died. The baby would become King Robert II of Scotland, the first of the Stewart monarchs and an ancestor of our present queen. Marjory was buried in the Abbey and this memorial marks the probable site of her last resting place.
