  Robert III of Scotland - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Robert III ("circa" 1340 – April 4, 1406), king of Scotland (reigned 1390 - 1406), the eldest son of King Robert II by his mistress, Elizabeth Mure, became legitimised with the formal marriage of his parents about 1349.
Probably in consequence of this accident his brother Robert, Earl of Fife, and not the crown prince himself, became guardian of the kingdom in 1389; but the latter succeeded to the throne on his father's death in May 1390.
Robert even asked to be buried under a dunghill with the epitaph: Here lies the worst of Kings and the most miserable of men.

 Robert III Feature Page on Undiscovered Scotland
Robert III lived from 1337 to 4 April 1406 and was King of Scotland from 19 April 1390 to 4 April 1406.
Yes he did: Robert III was actually christened John, but his third disadvantage was that "King John" was deemed to be too unpopular a name, reminding people too much of the bad old days of John Balliol: so he took the name Robert III instead.
By 1398 Robert III's health was restricting him so much that the Scottish Parliament appointed his oldest son, David, Duke of Rothesay to be Lieutenant of the Kingdom and rule in his father's place: at the same time they made Robert, Earl of Fife the Duke of Albany.

 History of the Monarchy > The Stewarts > Robert III
When Robert II died, he was succeeded by his 53-year-old son John, who took the name Robert III (as his given name John brought back defeatist memories of John Balliol).
As well as his advanced years, Robert suffered other disadvantages: he was born illegitimate (made legitimate in 1347), and he had been disabled in 1388 by a horse's kick, so that he had been regarded as unfit to govern for his father.
Apparently fearing for his own life, Robert III retired to the greater safety of Rothesay Castle on the Isle of Bute and in 1406 arranged to send his younger son James to France.

Robert, Duke of Albany had died in 1420, to be replaced by his son Murdoch as Governor and Regent, and it seems likely that with James marrying into the family it was the English King Henry VI who took the initiative in negotiating a ransom for James's return.
In early medieval Scotland bitter rivalry grew up between two immigrant families from Flanders in their struggle for the crown: the Stewarts and the Douglases, who won great lands and possessions but were never to gain the crown.

 Corrie Family History 998 - 2002
A general council held at Forfar in 1061 during the reign of King Malcolm III 'Canmore' (1057 - 1093) - the King directed the nobility of Scotland "after the manner of other nations" to adopt surnames from their territorial possessions; and there created the first surnames that ever existed in Scotland.
Robert, the third of these six sons and two daughters of Lord Balderic, assumed the name of 'de Courci' from his inheritance of Courci-sur-Dive, and transmitted it to his immediate descendants; all the other sons assumed surnames similarly derived from their particular properties or the place of their birth.
Having arrived in Ireland (from Scotland) in 1612 as 'Corrie' protestants, the family soon thereafter changed the spelling of their surname to 'Corry' to distance themselves from the predominantly Catholic 'Corrie's in Scotland.
