Introduction

This page is part of the Stewarts of Balquhidder Research Group Web Site jointly hosted by myself, Ryk Brown, and my research partner, Chuck Speed.  The research presented on this page is not ours alone.  It is the product of all the Fellow Researchers of the Stewarts of Balquhidder Research Group.  We are indebted to them for their generous contributions.  This page is intended as a place for researchers to freely and cooperatively share our research with each other.  The first-time reader is advised to begin with the introduction found on the Principal Families Page before proceeding on with this page.

This page introduces you to the Stewarts of Annat who lived in Annat, Kilmadock Parish, Perthshire, Scotland.  This family was associated together in a clan-like relationship together with the other Stewart families of Glenbuckie, Ardvorlich, and Gartnafuaran, in much the same way as the better known Clan Stewart of Appin.

The Stewarts of Annat are the youngest of the principal families on this site.  They are more correctly described as a cadet branch of the Stewarts of Ardvorlich, but, for ease of reading, they are presented here as a separate family in their own rights.  Alexander Stewart, 1st Laird of Annat was a nephew to Alexander Stewart, 1st of Ardvorlich, by Ardvorlich's brother John Stewart.  Alexander Stewart of Annat was the patriarch of the Stewarts of Annat, Ballachallan, and Craigtoun, Perthshire, Scotland. He purchased the lands of Annat in Doune (Kilmadock) Parish in 1621 from James Muschet of Burnbank.  The Annat lands were later sold to the Stewarts of Ballachallan, also in Doune (Kilmadock) Parish, and by the early 19th century this estate had been completely broken up among some of the larger neighbouring estates.  By 1820 the principle line of the Stewarts of Annat were no more, although the Stewarts of Rait were styling themselves as "of Annat" at the time.

Annat is located in Kilmadock Parish (formerly known as Doune parish) just a few miles northwest of the village of Doune.  It is shown on modern Ordnance Survey maps as "Annet".  The parish seat of Kilmadock is the village of Doune.  There is no village named Kilmadock within the parish.  Kilmadock means "cell of St. Modoc" and was an abbey and ancient centre of worship named in honour of that Celtic saint.

The following information and map are from Doune Historical Notes by Moray S. Mackay, (c)2003, Jamieson & Munro.


Map of Kilmadock Parish

The more orthodox etymology for the name of the farm, Annat, approved by Professor Watson, gives this as the oldest church term in Gaelic, and says that the name means "the parent church" or "the patron saint's church"- one dedicated to him or at whose dedication he was present.  In modern Gaelic the word is annaid.  Annats, or "patron saint's churches" are frequently found close to water.  In the case of the Annat farm of the Stewarts of Annat: locally the name Annat is that of a burn which lies wholly within the parish of Kilmadock, flowing south by southeast from the highest braes on the southern slopes of Uam Var (Uamh Mhor) to it's junction with the River Teith at Old Kilmadock (the site of the monastery), about 1-1/4 miles from Doune.  There are several waterfalls in it's course from the high wood to the Burn of Cambus.  About a third of a mile north of Milton Farm, one of the pools is called the "Caldron Linn", (probably from coire nan linn in Gaelic, meaning "glen of the pool").  Annat Farm is less than half a mile upstream from this place , on the west side of the burn.

Lower down, nearly opposite Milton, there is a steep-sided knoll, on the high west bank of the burn, called the Kirktown Knowe, which is the site of the ancient chapel and graveyard from which the orthodox derivation of the name Annat is here taken. This was one of the seven local chapels which came under the jurisdiction of the Old Kilmadock monastery.  About a hundred yards west of the Caldron Linn is the site of the ancient castle of Annat about which little is known and the only remaining sign of which is to be seen during a hot dry summer when the grass gets burned a little, and the plan of the walls may be faintly traced.  There is little, if any, trace of the chapel or graveyard now apart from one or two stones on top of the knoll, but the immediate vicinity shows broad signs of previous human activity in the strange configuration of the ground.

Another highly plausible etymology of the name Annat suggests that the name derives from Annait, which is the name of an ancient Goddess of Victory in the pantheon of the Caledonian Gaels.  Mackay suggests that Annat was the location of an ancient battle between the Caledonian Gaels and perhaps an invader from Northumbria, at which the Caledonians were victorious.  In honour of their victory they might well have named the site of the battle after the goddess whom they believed gave them victory.  Excavations in the area give support to the theory that an ancient military camp once existed in the area.  Mackay also notes that such a battle is known to have occurred just east of Annat where present-day Rosehall Farm is located. 

Annat Lands

Alexander Stewart, 1st of Annat purchased Annat in 1621 from James Muschet of Burnbank.  According to The Stewarts of the South, the Annat family also had a tack one fourth Glenfinglas (in the care of the Bains of Glenfinglas branch), which lands were sublet from the family of Perth.  They had a tack of Easter and Wester Portnellan, Lochvenacherside, Callander parish, purchased by the Earl of Murray from the Perth family.  They had a tack of the farm of Offrans and Duncragan later purchased by Sir Patrick Murray of Auchtertyre from the Perth family.  These lands were rather prosperous.

John Stewart, 5th of Annat, sold the estate to David Stewart of Ballachallan excepting one farm and some feues, which became the property of Sir John McGregor.  The Ballachallan estate was later sold to Mr Buchanan of Cambusmor - being contiguous to his own.  And the estate of Annat was bought by Lord Doune as it was lying in the midst of his own estate, except for the farm mentioned above, which was bought by Sir John McGregor.

Stewarts of the South

Stewarts of the South has the following to say about the family of Annat:

Alexander Stewart of Annat sold the estate to David Stewart of Balchallan excepting one farm and some Feues, which are now the property of Sir John McGregor.  After the death of worthy Balchallan, which is said to have happen by poison, the most part of his estate of Balchallan was sold to Mr Buchanan of Cambusmor - being contiguous to his own.  And the estate of Annat was bought by Lord Down (Doune) as it was lying in the midst of his own estate, except for the farm mentioned above, which was bought by Sir John McGregor -- a very cheap purchase.  Balchallan and Annat are in Down (Doune) parish.  Besides the estate of Annat, he had a tack one fourth Glenfinglas, which he did sublet from the family of Perth, [and he] had a tack of two Portnellans, Lochvenacherside, Callander parish, purchased by the late Earl of Murray from the Perth family.  He had a tack of the farm of Offrans and Duncragan bought lately by Sir Patrick Murray of Auchtertyre from the Perth family and had good profit of them.

It is said the first of Annat Family was a bastard of the Ardvorlich family (although Duncan Stewart does not mention it) and that he purchased the estate of Annat from Misset of Burnbank with some money gotten by his mother from some of the Argyll family for hiding them. Whither it was by their marriages or their own activity or through other circumstances is uncertain, but they rose higher than any other branch of their father's race from Ardvorlich.  The last of them was a great drunkard, but was very mindful of his two sisters to see them in Stirling for they were much supported by Gen (General) Stewart of Boblack and by the profits of a tack they had of the farm of Offrans of the forfeited estate of Perth, now Sir Patrick Murray's property. 

Annat Family Main Branch

The following report presents an introductory outline for the early generations of this family.  To see more detailed information, please refer to the various submitted reports on the main page of the Stewarts of Balquhidder Research Forum.  To see information on the ancestors of the Stewarts of Annat please see The Principal Families of the Balquhidder Stewarts.

Has Children John STEWART 1st of Portnellan was born in 1540 probably Portnellan, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland, and died in 1600 (according to a privately researched Annat Tree submitted to LDS) as the youngest lawful son of James Stewart, 4th of Baldorran, and youngest brother of Alexander Stewart, 1st of Ardvorlich (although some sources show him incorrectly as a bastard of Ardvorlich).  Little is known of John except that, according to The Annat Tree, he was a tenant in Annat, which property his son later purchased.  He was father of:

  1. Has Children Alexander MacIain STEWART in Glen Finglas, 2nd of Portnellan and 1st of Annat, b: 1564 in probably Portnellan, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Alexander was the only known son of John Stewart, tenant in Annat.  Alexander was the progenitor of the Stewarts of Annat, Ballachallan, and Craigtoun, Perthshire, Scotland. He purchased Annat in 1621 from James Muschet of Burnbank.  He is believed to be the Alexander McKen (MacIain) Stewart referred to in:"Bond by James Stewart, son of Alexander Stewart in Ardvorlich, and Alexander McKen Stewart in Portnellan to William, Earl of Mentieth, who have become cautioners to produce Andrew Stewart son of Alexander Stewart in Glenogle before the lords of the Secret Council. Dated 11 June, 1622."  McKen is a corruption of "mac Iain" or "son of John".  Sometime around this same date, or probably shortly thereafter, the Annat family complained to James Beag Stewart, 2nd of Ardvorlich, after he received a beneficial tack of Glenfinglas and portioned it among the principal branches of the Baldorran Stewarts, because he left out the Annat family. The dating makes it likely that it was Alexander Stewart, 1st of Annat, who complained about being left out of the Glenfinglas tack. The Annat family were then given a one-eighth share of Glenfinglas, which, from later accountings, would appear to have been the property of Auchnahard in Glenfinglas. It is not recorded who from Annat initially resided in Auchnahard, however since The Ardvorlich History claims that the later John Buidhe Mor was preceded by "a John or two" then it seems likely that the Auchnahard portion probably went first to John Stewart, future 2nd Laird of Annat, while Alexander was still alive.  It seems likely that John, future 2nd of Annat, likely held Auchnahard until his father's death, at which point he would have inherited the principal estate of Annat, to become John Stewart, 2nd of Annat, which would be when his natural son, John Buidhe Mor probably took possession of the tack in Glenfinglas.

Alexander Stewart, 1st of Annat, married in Perthshire, Scotland to Unknown MCNAB Of Auchurn.  They had the following children:

  1. Has Children John STEWART 2nd of Annat b: ABT 1587 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  He died in JUN 1665. He married firstly ABT 1628 in Perthshire, Scotland to Janet GRAHAM , Of Gartur b: ABT 1610 in Scotland.  Their children are presented below.
  2. Has No Children Walter STEWART b: ABT 1589 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  The Annat Tree shows no descendants for Walter.
  3. Has No Children Andrew STEWART in Ardkeanochdan b: ABT 1591 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Andrew entered into a contract of wadset in 1661 for the lands of Ardkeanochan. (MacGregor).  The Annat Tree shows no descendants for Andrew.
  4. Has Children James STEWART, Ancestor of Drumvaich b: ABT 1593 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  He married Margaret GRAHAM , of Boquhapple b: ABT 1620 in Boquhapple, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Their They had two known sons:
    1. Has Children John STEWART, ancestor of Drumvaich b: ABT 1650 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  His descendants are presented below under 1 Line - The Stewarts in Drumvaich
    2. Has Children Charles STEWART in Milton of Cambus b: ABT 1658 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  His descendants are presented below under 3 Line - Stewarts in Milton of Cambus, Powblack and Rait.
  5. Has Children Archibald STEWART , Ancestor Of Glassingall b: ABT 1595 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Archibald was the great-great-grandfather of Alexander Stewart of Glassingal.  His spouse is unknown.  His descendants are presented below under 4 Line - Stewarts in Glassingall.

John Stewart, 2nd of Annat

John STEWART , 2nd of Annat b: ABT 1587 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland. He died in JUN 1665. Stewarts of the South states that John had a natural son named John Buidhe Mor Stewart who was given the Annat portion of Glenfinglas, namely Auchnahard.  The Ardvorlich History states that John Buidhe Mor Stewart was preceded in Glenfinglas by "a John or two", which would suggest that this John Stewart, prior to be becoming 2nd of Annat, probably resided at Auchnahard in Glenfinglas.  Upon the death of Alexander Stewart, 1st of Annat, then this John Stewart would have inherited Annat, becoming John Stewart, 2nd of Annat, at which point it would appear that he gave his natural son the property of Auchnahard in Glenfinglas.

John Stewart, 2nd of Annat, must have done very well for himself as three of his sons were themselves lairds and landowners, a fourth was a doctor, and a fifth was Deputy Governor of Edinburgh Castle.  He signed the 1654 Bond of Keltney Burn along with the heads of all the other Stewart houses in Balquhidder, Athol, and Appin swearing tacit allegiance to King Charles II. 

John Stewart, 2nd of Annat is recorded in The Annat Tree and Stewarts of the South, Ardvorlich Section IX - "The Bains of Glenfinglas", as having had a natural son, by an unknown woman.  We don't know exactly when this natural son was born, but the chronology of his descendants would almost demand that he was born before his father married for the first time.  John Stewart, 2nd of Annat, had the following natural son:

  1. Has Children John Buidhe Mor STEWART in Glen Finglas, b: ABT 1625 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  The Annat Tree refers to him as "John Dow (Black) Stewart", whereas The Ardvorlich History refers to him as "John Buidhe ("Blonde" lit. "yellow") Stewart".  These nicknames are contradictory.  As his descendants were known as "Ban" (fair haired) then Buidhe seems to be more likely to be correct.  Stewarts of the South says that his father "gave him a farm in Glenfinglas.  His descendants are now called Bains."  This farm would be Auchnahard, the Annat portion of Glenfinglas.  John Buidhe Mor is described in The Ardvorlich History as the first verifiable ancestor of the Auchnahard family, but that he was preceded by "a John or two" -- which appears to be a reference to his father.  John Buidhe Mor's numerous descendants are presented on the Stewarts of Auchnahard Page.

John Stewart, 2nd of Annat, married firstly in Perthshire, Scotland to Janet GRAHAM, daughter of Jasper/Gespard Graham of Gartur.  She was b: ABT 1612 in Gartur, Cardross Moss, Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  They had the following children:

  1. Has Children Alexander STEWART , 3rd of Annat b: ABT 1630 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  He died in 1695 (according to an LDS submission).  He married about ABT 1670 in Perthshire, Scotland to Janet EDMUNSTON , Of Hermit's Croft b: ABT 1630 in Perthshire, Scotland.  Their children are presented below.
  2. Has Children Duncan STEWART , 1st of Ballachallan b: ABT 1633 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  He died in 1700 (according to an LDS submission).  He signed the 1654 Bond of Keltney Burn along with the heads of all the other Stewart houses in Balquhidder, Athol, and Appin swearing tacit allegiance to King Charles II.  He acquired the lands of Ballachallan from Walter Graham of Ballachallan in 1664.  Duncan Stewart married ABT 1669 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland to Agnes GRAHAM , Of Bofroschlie b: ABT 1635 in Perthshire, Scotland.  Their children are presented under Stewarts of Ballachallan, below.

John Stewart, 2nd of Annat, married secondly on 19 JUN 1649 in Perthshire, Scotland to Elizabeth CAMPBELL, daughter of John Campbell of Craigmundroch or Kinloch b: ABT 1620 in Perthshire, Scotland.  Sources disagree over her origins.  According to the John MacGregor Collection, citing Clan Campbell sources, she was the daughter of John Campbell of Craigmundroch, whereas Duncan Stewart in his 1739 History of the Stewarts says she was the daughter of John Campbell of Kinloch.  John MacGregor notes: "Elizabeth Campbell, widow of John Campbell, son of John Campbell of Craigmundroch?, was the wife of John Stewart of Annat 19th June 1649 Clan Campbell viii 312 According to Duncan Stewart p131 she was daughter to John Campbell of Kinloch."  John Stewart and Elisabeth Campbell had the following children:

  1. Has Children William STEWART , 1st of Craigton b: ABT 8 JUN 1649 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  He purchased the lands of Craigton in the Braes of Doune.  William married ABT 1670 in Perthshire, Scotland to Katherine MACFARLANE b: ABT 1650 in Perthshire, Scotland.  Their children are presented under Stewarts of Craigton below.
  2. Has No Children Charles STEWART b: ABT 27 APR 1651 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  MacGregor records that Charles had issue. Descendants shown here as researched by Belinda Dettman:
    1. Has No Children Janet STEWART b: ABT 11 AUG 1677 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland
    2. Has No Children Charles STEWART b: ABT 15 AUG 1679 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland
  3. Has No Children Lt. Col. James STEWART , Dep. Gov. Edinburgh Castle, b: ABT 1653 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  James was Lieutenant-Colonel of the Scots Regiment of Horse Guards and Deputy-Governor of the Castle of Edinburgh.
  4. Has No Children Capt. Henry STEWART b: ABT 1655 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  He attained the rank of Captain in the army.
  5. Has No Children Dr. Robert STEWART b: ABT 1657 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Robert was a surgeon and/or an apothecary in Doune. He was pursued by the Privy Council in 1690 for his participation in the Jacobite army at the battle of Killiecrankie in July 1689. (MacGregor)  IGI records indicate that Robert probably married Mary MOIR b: ABT 1685 in Scotland, but there is no record of that marriage.  They had the following child:
    1. Has Children Jean or Janet STEWART b: 4 APR 1713 in Doune, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Her father is recorded as having issue including a daughter Janet who married Allan STEWART b: ABT 1710 in Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland, of the Appin Family in Glenfinglas.
      1. Their descendants are presented on the Other Stewarts in Southern Perthshire page.
  6. Has No Children Janet STEWART b: ABT 1660 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland
  7. Has No Children Jean STEWART b: ABT 1663 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland

Alexander Stewart, 3rd of Annat

Alexander STEWART , 3rd Of Annat b: ABT 1630 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  He died in 1695 (according to an LDS submission).  He married about ABT 1670 in Perthshire, Scotland to Janet EDMUNSTON, daughter of John Edmunston of Hermit's Croft b: ABT 1630 in Perthshire, Scotland.  They had the following children:

  1. Has No Children Janet STEWART b: ABT 17 FEB 1672 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland
  2. Has No Children Isabel STEWART b: ABT 1673 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to the Annat Tree she married Alexander STEWART 4th of Ballachulish, a cadet branch of the Stewarts of Invernahyle.
  3. Has No Children Daughter STEWART b: ABT 1675 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to the Annat Tree she married James STEWART 3rd of Innischaoraich, a cadet branch of the Stewarts of Invernahyle.  It is likely that she is identical with either Janet above or Marjory below.
  4. Has No Children Marjory STEWART b: ABT 29 APR 1678 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland
  5. Has Children Alexander STEWART , 4th of Annat b: ABT 1680 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Recorded by Duncan Stewart (1739) as the present Lord of Annat. He was placed in the care of his paternal uncle Duncan Stewart of Ballachallan on 14 June 1695 after the early death of his father. Presumably he was still a minor at the time.  Alexander married Isabel FULLERTON , Of Lanrick b: ABT 1680 in Scotland.  Their children are presented below.

Alexander Stewart, 4th of Annat

Alexander STEWART , 4th of Annat b: ABT 1680 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Recorded by Duncan Stewart (1739) as the present Laird of Annat. He was placed in the care of his paternal uncle Duncan Stewart of Ballachallan on 14 June 1695 after the death of his father. Presumably he was still a minor at the time.  He was involved in "The Glen Affair" ca. 1755 and was still alive for its appeal in 1772.  Alexander married Isabel daughter of John FULLERTON , Of Greehall, Bishop of Edinburgh, b: ABT 1680 in Scotland and had the following children:

  1. Has Children John STEWART , 5th of Annat b: ABT 1705 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Stewarts of the South describes John as "a great drunkard."  He sold the family estate of Annat to his cousin, David Hume Stewart, 3rd of Ballachallan (below). Stewarts of the South says that John was "very mindful of his two sisters to see them in Stirling" where they were pensioned by their cousin Lt. Col. Robert Stuart of Rait (further below).  John served in the Perthshire House of the Jacobite army in 1745. According to MacGregor, following the battle of Culloden John fled Scotland and died without issue and his later whereabouts are unknown.  However The Annat Tree shows John with the following children:
    1. Has Children Donald STEWART, "6th" of the Annat family b: ABT 1725 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Donald's father sold the estate of Annat, thus Donald inherited neither the estate nor the title, but he was the senior surviving male heir of the Annat family. According to the Annat Tree he was wounded at Culloden.  He married an unknown woman and had the following daughter:
      1. Has No Children Margaret STEWART b: ABT 1750.
    2. Has No Children Anne STEWART b: ABT 1728 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland
    3. Has No Children Margaret STEWART b: ABT 1730 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland
  2. Has No Children Dr. Duncan STEWART, MD b: ABT 1711 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to MacGregor, he became a surgeon and died in the East Indies. MacGregor and The Annat Tree both show him without children

  3. Has No Children Francis STEWART b: ABT 27 FEB 1713 in Craigton, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to Stewarts of the South she resided with her sister Margaret in Stirling and received income from the family tack of Offrans and a pension from her cousin Lt. Col. Robert Stuart of Rait (later General Stuart).

  4. Has No Children Margaret STEWART b: ABT 18 FEB 1714 in Doune, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  MacGregor mistakenly shows Margaret as having married Robert STEWART , 7th of Ardvorlich.  However this contradicts the accounts of Stewarts of the South and The Annat Tree which both say that she resided with her sister Francis in Stirling and received income from the family tack of Offrans and a pension from her cousin Lt. Col. Robert Stuart of Rait (later General Stuart) of the Drumvaich family below.  The Annat Tree shows the wife of Ardvorlich as Margaret Stewart of the Drumvaich family below.

The Stewarts of Ballachallan (and later of Annat)

Duncan STEWART , 1st Of Ballachallan b: ABT 1633 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland, as a son of John Stewart, 2nd of Annat (above).  He died in 1700 (according to an LDS submission).  He acquired the lands of Ballachallan from Walter Graham of Ballachallan in 1664.  Duncan Stewart married ABT 1669 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland to Agnes GRAHAM daughter of George Graham of Bofroschlie b: ABT 1635 in Perthshire, Scotland.  They had the following children:

  1. Has Children Janet STEWART , Of Ballochallan b: ABT 9 FEB 1670 in Ballochallan, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  She married Walter GRAHAM , Of Nether Glenny and Mondowie, b: ABT 1670 in Perthshire, Scotland.  They had known descendants who are accounted for in Belinda Dettmann's Annat Report.
  2. Has No Children Agnes STEWART b: ABT 17 NOV 1670 in Ballochallan, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Agnes presumably died as a child prior to the birth of her same-named sister, Agnes.
  3. Has No Children Duncan STEWART b: ABT 5 MAR 1672 in Ballochallan, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  MacGregor reports that he "died young".
  4. Has Children George STEWART , 2nd Of Ballachallan b: ABT 9 OCT 1675 in Ballochallan, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  He married ABT 1705 in Perthshire, Scotland to Mary, daughter and Heiress of Henry HUME , Of Argaty b: ABT 1690 in Argaty, Perthshire, Scotland.  Their children are presented below.
  5. Has No Children Patrick STEWART b: ABT 31 MAY 1677 in Ballochallan, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Patrick is not mentioned by MacGregor, therefore it is presumed he died too young for later documentation.
  6. Has Children Agnes STEWART b: ABT 5 MAY 1678 in Ballochallan, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Alison Mitchell's Monumental Transcriptions read: "Laedere Noli. Lieut. Walter Stewart, wife Agnes Stewart 8.1.1756, age 80, by son John, 1760."  (It is believed that the 1756 death is Agnes' and the 1760 reference is to the death of Walter.)  Stewarts of the South records that John married a daughter of Stewart of Ballachallan, but no such daughter can be found. However Walter's wife, Agnes, is a near exact match for this Agnes, daughter of Duncan Stewart, 1st of Ballachallan. It is therefore suggested that Stewarts of the South was off by one generation and that it was actually Walter who married a Stewart of Ballachallan.  Thus we suggest that Agnes Stewart married Lt. Walter STEWART, in Brig O' TurkTheir descendants are presented on the Stewarts of Glenfinglas page.
  7. Elizabeth STEWART, b. ABT 1680 in Ballachallan, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  She married James Buchanan, 2nd of Auchleshie, and had issue. (MacGregor)

George Stewart, 2nd of Ballachallan

George STEWART , 2nd Of Ballachallan b: ABT 9 OCT 1675 in Ballochallan, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  He married ABT 1705 in Perthshire, Scotland to Mary daughter and heiress of Henry HUME, of Argaty b: ABT 1690 in Argaty, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.

The name Argaty, sometimes shown as Ardgaty, derives from the Gaelic aird, "height", and gaoth, "wind" and means "windy height".  Argaty is a farm estate located just over a mile northeast of Doune.  (See map above.)  Argaty was originally part of the Doune estate, property of the Dukes of Albany, ancestors of George Stewart.  When the House of Stewart of Albany was brought down and executed, their lands were forfeited to the Crown and Argaty was among the forfeited properties.  After the forfeiture the Crown granted the lands of Argaty to John Sinclair, Esquire to the King's Chamber.  The property passed to Sinclair's younger daughter who married Patrick Home (or "Hume", pronounced "Hoom", not "Hyoom") of Polworth, and Argaty thus came into the possession of the Home family.  About a century and a half later the property again fell upon a daughter, Mary Hume/Home, who married George Stewart, 2nd of Ballachallan, whose descendants took the name Home-Stewart (or Hume-Stewart).  Ironically, through this circuitous route of forfeiture and marriages the property of Argaty actually returned to the descendants of the the same Stewarts who lost it three centuries earlier.

George Stewart and Mary Hume had the following children:

  1. Has No Children Daughter STEWART b: ABT 7 JUN 1706 in Ballachallan, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  This daughter is listed in the OPR without a first name.  The child may have died at birth, however she is claimed by MacFarlane family tradition to have married Donald MacFarlane of Lettir (ca.1685-1744).  No record of any such marriage exists, however David Hume Stewart, 3rd of Ballachallan is recorded as the tutor of the children of Donald MacFarlane as follows:

    A testament by Alexander MacFarlane in Lettir, a tenant of Donald MacFarlane of Lettir, by which at his death:

    "The balance (of his estate) estimated, in value to the sum of One Hundred and Forty Seven Pounds Scots money which was put in the hands of David Stewart of Ballochallan as Tutor to the children of Donald Mcfarlane of Letter who bought the said effects."

    A tutor for minors is most often chosen from among the siblings of their deceased parents.  Thus it seems most likely that this unknown Stewart and his wife died young and that David Hume Stewart, 3rd of Ballachallan, was an uncle to the children of Donald MacFarlane of Lettir.  This claim is addressed by the following reference in the Stewarts of the South:

    "3 Auchraig & Letter Do - at present Benny Munrows property sold by the late Robert's father to a family of the name of Stirling who sold it again to one Mcfarlane from whom the late David of Balchallan swindled it, although they were his sisters children [emph. added].  It was once a grazing place to Ardvurlich family."

    This line is being researched by descendant Andrew MacFarlane in New Zealand.

  2. Has No Children Francis STEWART b: 9 MAR 1713 in Ballachallan, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Francis' baptism is recorded in both Kilmadock and Aberfoyle parishes.
  3. Has No Children David Hume STEWART , 3rd of Ballachallan, 6th of Annat, and of Argaty b: ABT 1715 in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland.  David Hume Stewart of Ballachallan purchased the property of Annat from his cousin John Stewart, 5th of Annat (above). He also acquired the lands of Argaty from his mother on 24 July 1752 and, according to the Stewarts of the South, he tried to swindle Robert Stewart, 7th Ardvorlich, out of the property of Ardvorlich. According to the same letter, David is described as "a keen grasping man closely attached to the world and not much to friendship". He died without issue.
    1. Donald STEWART, 4th of Ballachallan, b: ABT 1710 in Glen Finglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  David Hume Stewart of Ballachallan is alleged in some genealogies to have had a son named Donald Stewart, styled as 4th of Ballachallan, who fought at Culloden and then settled at Hythie in Aberdeenshire.  However this claim is mistaken.  Donald Stewart "in Ballachallan" and latterly of Hythie did exist but he was not the son of David Hume Stewart of Ballachallan.  In fact he was roughly the same age as David Hume Stewart and thus it would be chronologically impossible for Donald to be the son of this David and further, David Hume Stewart is recorded as having died without issue and his estates passed to his nephew George Home(-Stewart), 4th of Ballachallan, 7th of Annat, and 2nd of Argaty (shown below).  Donald Stewart was actually the son of David Stewart, Forester of Glen Finglas, who was in turn the son of James Stewart, 4th of Ardvorlich.  It is possible that Donald Stewart may have resided at Ballachallan and thus may have been styled "in Ballachallan" but he was never "of Ballachallan."  Further information on the correct accounting of Donald Stewart of Hythie and "in Ballachallan" can be found on our Stewart of Hythie page.
  4. Has Children Dr. George HOME-STEUART , of Argaty b: ABT 1717 in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland.
    1. His information and descendants are presented below.
  5. Has Children James STEWART , Sheriff Of Kinross b: ABT 1720 in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland.  He married on 3 JUN 1744 in Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland to Penelope ERSKINE , Of Cambo b: ABT 1720 in Scotland and had the following children:
    1. Has No Children Mary STEWART b: ABT 17 OCT 1746 in Kinross, Kinross, Scotland
    2. Has No Children Charles STEWART, b. JUN 1748 in Kinross, Kinross, Scotland
    3. Has No Children Janet STEWART b: 15 DEC 1749 in Kinross, Kinross, Scotland
  6. Has No Children William STEWART b: ABT 1725 in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland.  He entered the army as an officer.

Dr. George Home-Stewart of Argaty

Has Children Dr. George HOME-STEWART, of Argaty b: ABT 1717 in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland.  Dr. George Home-Steuart moved to Maryland, United States where he was a medical doctor. Dr. George Steuart was politically involved with the interests of the proprietorship of Maryland, i.e. the Calvert family; thus finding himself on the "wrong" side when the Revolutionary War erupted. He owned at least 4,100 acres in Anne Arundel County, Maryland in 1775. The Revolution caused a dilemma for Dr. Steuart. If he supported the Revolution, he would forfeit his property in Scotland. If he supported the Crown, his estates in America would be confiscated. It appears he was a pragmatic man, and divided his family. Dr. Steuart returned to Scotland with some sons, and proclaimed his loyalty. He left Ann and some of the family in Maryland, signed his land over to his sons, who professing sympathy for the Revolution, they retained the American properties. Dr. Steuart died in Scotland, just as the Revolutionary War was ending. Ann died in 1814, at the estate in Maryland called "Dodon." The Steuart farm at Dodon is still family owned, though they only have about 550 acres left. You can visit their website at www.dodonfarm.com . (submitted by Arthur Bielfelt)  George married to Anne DIGGES b: ABT 1720 in Warburton, Prince George County, Maryland, USA. They had the following children:

  1. Has Children George HOME 4th of Ballachallan & 7th of Annat & 2nd Argaty b: ABT 1745 in Maryland, USA.  George succeeded his father in the lands of Argaty and his uncle in the lands of Ballachallan and Annat. Upon George's death the estates of Ballachallan, Annat and Argaty passed to his daughter Sophia who married and the estates passed outside the Stewarts. George's brothers all sued Sophia trying to claim the estates to keep them in Stewart hands, but they were unsuccessful.  George married firstly on 09 FEB 1777 in St. Ninian's, Stirlingshire, Scotland to Mary ERSKINE of Powis b: ABT 1750 in Powis, Angus, Scotland, daughter of David Rollo of Powis.  They had no known children.  George married secondly on 20 NOV 1785 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland to Jane MUNRO of Auchenbowie b: ABT 1765 in Scotland, daughter of John Munro of Auchenbowie.  George and Jane had one child:
    1. Has No Children Sophia HOME-STEWART Heiress of Ballachallan & Annat & Argaty b: 05 AUG 1787 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Sophia inherited the lands of Ballachallan, Annat, and Argaty on the death of her father. With her marriage to David Munro Binning the lands of Annat, et al, passed out of the hands of the Stewarts. Several of her uncles tried unsuccessfully to sue for the estate.  Sophia married on 08 AUG 1803 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland to David Munro BINNING of Softlaw b: ABT 1780 in Scotland.
  2. Has No Children Dr. Charles STEUART of Annapolis b: ABT 1747 in Maryland, USA.  Charles was a medical doctor in Annapolis, Maryland, USA.

  3. Has No Children Susanna STEUART b: 1749 in Maryland, USA
  4. Has No Children David STEUART b: ABT 1752 in Maryland, USA.  David Steuart fought for the British during the Revolutionary War, but returned to Maryland where he died in 1814 and is buried at Dodon, the family estate. He tried unsuccessfully to sue his niece Sophia Home-Stewart for the lands of Ballachallan and Argaty.
  5. Has No Children William STEUART b: 1754 in Maryland, USA
  6. Has Children Dr. James STEUART b: 1755 in Maryland, USA.  James Stewart was a medical doctor in Annapolis, Maryland, USA. James is described in Stewarts of the South as follows: "As far as I can learn this James of Balchallan altho born in America was one of the most friendly & generous gentleman of the name of Stewart of the Ardvurlich descendants and had the means to support his generosity - He left three brothers the oldest of them [David] came home and was claiming the Estate of Balchallan [against his neice, Sophia Home-Steuart] but was rejected. Another of them was m. to a niece of the celebrated & Gallant Gen Washington." (sic) James did not have brother who was married to a niece of General George Washington, however his brother, Dr. Charles Steuart of Annapolis married Elizabeth Calvert whose sister was married to the stepson of General George Washington. This, perhaps, may be the source of the confusion.  James married on 04 NOV 1788 in Anne Arundel, Maryland, USA to Rebecca SPRIGGS b: UNKNOWN.  They had the following children:
    1. Has Children George Hume STEUART b: 01 NOV 1790 in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.  George married on 03 MAY 1826 to Anne Jane EDMONSON b: UNKNOWN.  They had:

William STEWART , 1st of Craigton b: ABT 8 JUN 1649 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland, son of John Stewart, 2nd of Annat, shown above.  William purchased the lands of Craigton in the Braes of Doune.  William married ABT 1670 in Perthshire, Scotland to Katherine MACFARLANE b: ABT 1650 in Perthshire, Scotland.  The following inscription in the Crieff Church gives evidence of their marriage and some of their children:  "In church hall, on wall (emblems) W S K McF (arms, lion rampant, crescent and fess chequy, motto) vivur ingenio Wm Stewart of Craigtoun 29.8.1702 53, w Kath McFarland 1810 37, chn Marjorie, Marie & Helen Stuart" (Crieff Church Inscriptions).  William and Katherine had the following children:

  1. Has Children Alexander STEWART , 2nd of Craigton b: ABT 30 SEP 1671 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  He married on 6 APR 1693 in Drummonderinoch, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland to Katherine DRUMMOND , Of Drummonderinoch b: ABT 1675 in Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland.  They had the following children:
    1. Has No Children James STEWART b: ABT 1693 in Craigton, Doune, Perthshire, Scotland.  He must have died young as his cousin John (below) is said to have "had the income of the estate during his life".
    2. Has No Children Margaret STEWART b: ABT 1695 in Craigton, Doune, Perthshire, Scotland.  She married Patrick HALDANE , 1st Of Lanrick b: 1685 in Scotland.
  2. Has No Children John STEWART b: ABT 3 MAY 1673 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland
  3. Has No Children Marjorie STEWART b: ABT 1676 in Perthshire, Scotland.  She is suggested from evidence in the Crieff church inscription, shown above.  She is presumed to have died young.
  4. Has No Children Marie STEWART b: ABT 1679 in Perthshire, Scotland.  She is suggested from evidence in the Crieff church inscription, shown above.  She is presumed to have died young.
  5. Has No Children Helen STEWART b: ABT 6 AUG 1683 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  She is suggested from evidence in the Crieff church inscription, shown above.  She is presumed to have died young before the birth of her same-named sister.
  6. Has No Children Gilles STEWART b: ABT 6 AUG 1686 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Presumably died young or would have been ahead of Mary as heir of Craigton.
  7. Has No Children Jean STEWART b: ABT 2 JUN 1689 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Presumably died young or would have been ahead of Mary as heir of Craigton.
  8. Has No Children James STEWART b: ABT 1693 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Presumably died young or would have been ahead of Mary as heir of Craigton.
  9. Has Children Mary STEWART, Heiress of Craigton b: ABT 1695 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  After the death of her brother Alexander and his son James, the Craigton estate fell to Mary, presumably as the eldest surviving heir.  She married Alexander STEWART b: ABT 1686 in Probably Glenfinglas, Perthshire, Scotland, who was the son of James Stewart, 4th of Ardvorlich.  Mary Stewart and Alexander Stewart had the following children:
    1. Has No Children John STEWART, 3rd of Craigton b: ABT 1717 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Described by the Stewarts of the South as "a lunatic who had the income of the estate during his life." He died without issue.
    2. Has Children Janet STEWART b: ABT 1720 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Stewarts of the South records that she "tried unsuccessfully to claim her father's estate" (presumably from her lunatic brother).  She married ABT 1742 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland to John MCQUEEN in The Heads, b: ABT 1720 in The Heads, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Janet and John had the following children.  This branch is being researched by Belinda Dettmann.

The next cadet branch of the Annat Stewarts is the family of James Stewart, a merchant in Doune, and is presented in Stewarts of the South as follows:

As far as I can understand, one Mr James Stewart, a merchant in Down (Doune) and proprietor of some houses there, is the lineal descendant of Annat.  He has three sons in the mercantile line in Glasgow.  His father was uncle to the present Ardvorlich by the mother's side.

The Annat Tree shows that the "uncle of the present Ardvorlich on his mother's side" would be John Stewart in Drumvaich, who's sister, Margaret, married Robert Stewart, 7th of Ardvorlich -- parents of William Stewart, 8th of Ardvorlich, who was the "present" Ardvorlich at the time that Stewarts of the South was written.  According to the Annat Tree, Margaret, mother of Ardvorlich, had two brothers: Robert and an un-named brother who "went to America".  The "un-named" brother must be synonymous with James Stewart, merchant in Doune.  This branch obviously remained close to Ardvorlich as they became maternally related to Ardvorlich again later (as shown below).

However the resulting interval of approximately 117 years between the birth of James Stewart, Ancestor of Drumvaich and the birth of his first grandson makes it likely that there as at least one or more generations missing from the Annat Tree.

Has Children James STEWART , Ancestor of Drumvaich b: ABT 1593 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland, as the fourth son of Alexander Stewart, 1st of Annat.  James married Margaret GRAHAM of Boquhapple (near Thornhill, not to be confused with Bochastle).  They had the following son:

  1. Has Children John or James STEWART , ancestor of Drumvaich b: ABT 1650 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to the Kennedy-Annat Tree John married Margaret STEWART b: ABT 1675 in Inneschaoraich, Perthshire, Scotland, daughter of Alan STEWART 2nd of Innischaoraich, a cadet branch of the Invernahyle Stewarts.  According to the Kennedy-Annat Tree, Margaret Stewart was daughter of Allan Stewart of Innischaoraich who was in turn son of James Stewart of Innischaoraich. However, Stewarts of the South and the Invernahyle genealogy in The Scottish Journal both show that Allan Stewart, 2nd of Innischaoraich, was the son of Dugald Stewart, 1st of Innischaoraich, and the father of James Stewart, 3rd of Innischaoraich. Furthermore, according to The Scottish Journal, Margaret married James not John Stewart predecessor of Drumvaich. They had the following family:

    1. Has Children James STEWART , 1st of Drumvaich b: ABT 1710 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Two versions of the Annat Tree conflict over the 1st of Drumvaich being either James or John.  It is unclear whether there were two brothers who succeeded each other or whether there is only one whose name has been incorrectly recorded in one version of the Tree.  Thus it is possible that the children shown here as being without names in the OPR may be the same persons as two of the children shown for John Stewart, 2nd of Drumvaich, below.  James' existence is inferred from Kilmadock OPRs in which he is shown with the following children.  It is presumed that he either died without heirs or sold the estate to his brother and emigrated.  He is believed to have married Jean STUART.
      1. Child STEUART, bap. 1755 (no exact date given) in Drumvaich, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland. (mother's first name not given)
      2. Child STEUART, bap. 11 NOV 1760 in Drumvaich, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.
    2. Isobel STEWART?, b ABT 1712 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Isobel is not confirmed as a daughter of this family.  She had a natural son, John, with Allan STEWART in Doune of the Invernahyle Stewarts.  The baptism was witnessed by John Stewart, younger of Annat, suggesting that Isobel was probably a daughter of one of the Annat families.  The fact that her son was named John suggests that her father was named John.  John Stewart, ancestor of Drumvaich is the only John of the Annat family that would fit chronologically.
    3. Has Children John STEWART , 2nd of Drumvaich b: ABT 1715 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  John may be one and the same person with the James shown to be his brother (see note above).  John was father of:
      1. Has Children Robert STEWART , 3rd of Drumvaich b: ABT 1750 in Drumvaich, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Robert married Catharine STEWART.  He presumably died prior to 1815 as he is not mentioned in Stewarts of the South and his brother James is described as the senior surviving male of the Annat family.
        1. Has Children Mary STEWART , in Drumvaich b: ABT 1775 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  She married John STEWART 15th of Glenbuckie (He was Stewart of Glenbuckie by marriage and was, by birth, actually a Stewart of Monachyle from the Glenogle family).  Their descendants are presented on the Stewarts of Glenogle Page.
      2. Has Children Ruth STEWART b: ABT 1755 in Drumvaich, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland. She married BET 16 AND 29 JAN 1779 in Kilmadock and Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland to Archibald MCLAREN.  After her husband's death, Ruth lived in Milngavie and Gorbals.  They had several children including:
        1. Has No Children Catherine MCLAREN b: ABT 12 APR 1780 in Bridge of Teith, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  She married on 28 MAR 1812 in Gorbals, Lanark, Scotland to Alexander COOKE b: ABT 1780 in Scotland.  They had two sons who were founders of Kingston, Southeast Australia.
        2. Has No Children James MCLAREN b: ABT 18 AUG 1781 in Bridge of Teith, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  James immigrated to Australia in 1838 aboard the ship the Brilliant. He had issue.
        3. Has No Children Margaret MCLAREN b: ABT 13 APR 1783 in Bridge of Teith, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  She died ABT 1795 from smallpox.
        4. Has Children Alexander MCLAREN b: ABT 29 MAY 1785 in Bridge of Teith, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland. He married in 1819 to Sarah CONNELL.  He was an advocate for political reform in Scotland and spent time in the  Cannongate jail for his efforts.
          1. Has Children Dr. Alexander Connel MACLAREN , M.D. b: 21 DEC 1819 in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, Scotland, d 1902.  He married in 1850 to Mary ANDREWS.  They had several children, including:
            1. Has Children Sarah Lily Mary MACLAREN b: 16 FEB 1864 in London, Middlesex, England. She married on 22 JUL 1891to Maj. William STEWART 13th of Ardvorlich, b: 8 OCT 1859 in Ardvorlich, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland. They had several children who are detailed on the Stewarts of Ardvorlich Page.  Their descendants include:
              1. Maj. John Alexander MacLaren STEWART, 14th of Ardvorlich
                1. Alexander Donald STEWART, 15th and present of Ardvorlich

        5. Has No Children John MCLAREN b: ABT 7 JUL 1787 in Bridge of Teith, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland, who died in infancy from smallpox.
        6. Has No Children Janet MCLAREN b: ABT 1 FEB 1790 in Bridge of Teith, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland, of whom little is known.
      3. Has No Children Son STEWART b: ABT 1758 in Drumvaich, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  He is described in The Annat Tree as a son of unknown name "who went to America".
      4. Has Children James STEWART , 4th of Drumvaich b: 1758 in Drumvaich, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.   James is not shown in the Annat Tree and thus he could be synonymous with the preceding unknown son, but James did not go to America, at least not before 1815. James is described in Stewarts of the South as "a merchant in Doune" who owned several houses in Doune and had three sons in the mercantile in Glasgow.

        The following MIs from Kilmadock have now been identified, clearly pertaining to this branch:

        39 James STEWART, merchant (at) Glasgow, died 20 JUL 1837. Catharine STEWART 13 MAR 1876, age 81, widow of Peter ROBERTSON, farmer (at) Craighead.

        James is presumed to have married Helen MCFARLANE b: 1759 in Perthshire, Scotland, although no record of their marriage has been found.  They had the following children:

        1. Has No Children Margaret STEWART b: ABT 03 DEC 1780 in Doune, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Margaret's baptism was witnessed by John McFarlane and Charles Stewart both in Doune.

The next cadet branch of the Annat family were a family of Stewarts who lived in Noriston near Thornhill in Port of Menteith parish.  Very little is known about this family except what is recorded in Stewarts of the South.  We have not been able to reconcile this family with parish records or discern how this family grafts to the main Annat family tree.  The Norrieston Stewarts are presented in Stewarts of the South as follows:

Archibald Stewart in Noriston, near Thornhill.  Noriston was part of the estate of Nori, Down parish.  Nori, once a great name in that country is now almost extinct except a few about Carron water.  Noristown, a purchase of Earl of Murray.

  1. Archibald's son lives at Kinross in middling circumstances.  He deals much in horses and has a family of sons.

3 Line - Stewarts in Milton of Cambus, Powblack and Rait

Milton of Cambus

This branch was being researched by the late Margaret Kennedy.

The next cadet branch of the Annat Stewarts were a family who lived in Drumvaich.  Drumvaich is located in Callander parish on the bank of the River Teith on the main road midway between Callander and Doune villages.  This branch is described in Stewarts of the South as follows:

James (sic, s/b Alexander) Stewart, tacksman of Boblack Carse of Frews, Down parish, Earl's estate, was drowned upon the water of Teith.  He left two sons:

  1. Commissioner Stewart, who was in Stirling.  He left one son who sold the little property left him by his grandfather's mother to his uncle Gen (General) Robt Stewart of Boblack (below).  He now lives between Edinburgh and Falkirk.  He has some family.

  2. Gen (General) Robert Stewart of Reath, of the Honorable East India Company, has three sons of whom you know something yourself.

Note: Stewarts of the South is mistaken in its accounting here. The Annat Tree shows, and parish records confirm, that the father of General Robert Stuart of Rait was Alexander Stewart of Powblack in Frew, not James.  Thus it is not certain whether it was Alexander who drowned in the Teith or whether it was an unknown James Stewart who has been confused.

Rait is located in the Carse of Gowrie, clear across the other side of Perthshire, east of the city of Perth.  Rait and Gowrie have a common etymological origin.  Gowrie in Gaelic is Gobharaidh, pronounced "Gow-rait", and may mean "blacksmith's fortified house", the last syllable raid(h) being synonymous with Rait.

Has Children Alexander STEWART in Powblack of Frew, Ground Officer to the Earl of Murray b: ABT 22 JUL 1700 in Cambusburn, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland. d. 1757.  Alexander is mentioned in the following reference in the Appendix of Stewarts of the South in which he is mistakenly referred to as "James Stewart in Boblack"

"I think I wrote you something concerning the Stewarts of Tar, before, and will do again if you think proper, though not in this paper.  My reason for neglecting in description is [for] their being extinct, [all] but two daughters that are married and in very low circumstances.  The late James Stewart of Tar father was in partnership with the late General Stewart of Raith's father in purchasing Oakwoods, which trade was not at that time taken by any but clever active men.  He was called James Stewart of Boblach in the four and twenty farms of the Carse of Frews, in the Lordship of Doune, and was ground officer to the Earl of Murray.  And should I have the pleasure of seeing you soon, I shall relate some fine anecdotes that passed between them, both of them being very active grasping men."

Gen. Robert Stuart. Commissioner Stewart left one son who sold the little property left him by his grandfather's mother to his uncle, Lt. Gen. Robert Stuart of Rait. He was in Stirling at the time of his death (prior to the authoring of SOS). It is believed that his surviving son was William and that John died young.

Has Children General Robert STUART , 1st of Annat in Rait b: 13 MAY 1744 in Powblack, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland. He died 18 FEB 1820 in England.  Robert Stuart served as a commander in the army of the Honourable East India Company and actively recruited many of his Stewart cousins into service with the HEIC. In Stewarts of the South he is mentioned as a Lieutenant General, but was later promoted to General.

Robert Stuart became extremely wealthy from the East India Company and was arguably the most financially successful of all the Baldorran Stewarts. In his later years he provided pensions for several of his widowed and spinster cousins, including the sisters of John Stewart, 5th and last of Annat, who was a drunk and sold the family estate of Annat in Kilmadock.

General Robert Stuart acquired the estate of Rait in the Carse of Gowrie in southeast Perthshire (as noted above). He named his residence there, "Annat", after his ancestral home near Doune. As the original line of Stewart of Annat had been sold, General Robert Stuart had the arms re-matriculated and became 1st of Annat in Rait.

In 1817 a book of poetry by John Stewart of the Glenfinglas tribe was published by subscription of other members of the clan. The list of subscribers includes Lieutenant General Stewart of Rait. 

Robert had the following children by an unknown mother or mothers:

  1. Has No Children Agnes STEWART b: ABT 11 APR 1773 in Lendrick, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  She is suggested from parish records and is not found in family records and is presumed to have died young.
  2. Has No Children Peter John STUART, b. BEF 1781 in India.  According to family records Peter John was nearly an adult when his father was captured by the Sikhs in 1792.  He was "not so highly regarded by the General" and was later said to be (mentally) "infirm".  He probably had a different mother from his brother Kenneth Bruce.

General Robert Stuart is believed to have married or otherwise been involved with Elizabeth HILLYARD by whom he is believed to have had the following child:

  1. Mary STEWART b: ABT 26 DEC 1779 in Doune, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland

General Stuart married a Princess of the House of Shah Allam and had the following two sons:

  1. Has Children Kenneth Bruce STUART, 2nd of Annat in Rait, b. 1783 in India.  He died 28 JUL 1832. Kenneth and his brother Robert were sent back to Scotland as boys to be educated.  Kenneth became a celebrated linguist.  He was involved with a "high born Indian princess" who is identified in the IGI as Princess DE BARBAR, by whom he had the following natural child:
    1. Has Children Dr. Robert STUART, MD b: 1810 in Delhi, India.  Robert was a natural son.  He was educated in Scotland as a doctor.  He returned to India and had issue in four generations, but none remain of the Stuart name.  He married Eliza Jane Turnbull or THOMSON and had the following son:
      1. Has No Children Dr. Kenneth Bruce STUART, MD b: 1836 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  He married on 17 OCT 1860 in Edinburgh parish, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland to Sarah Matilda WOTHERSPOON.  It is believed that the had descendants in India.

        2. Has No Children George MOODY-STUART , 6th of Annat in Rait b: AFT 1870 in Scotland.  George's identity is uncertain and is inferred from family correspondence.

        3. Has No Children Kenneth MOODY-STUART b: AFT 1871 in Scotland.  It is presumed that he died prior to his elder brothers as the family estate passed to another branch.

He acquired estates in Antigua which his son Alexander went to run in the 1920s. He was made a Commander of the British Empire for his role in founding the Imperial College of Tropical Agriculture (ICTA) in Trinidad in the 1920s.

4 Line - Stewarts in Glassingall, Lanrick/Lendrick and Carse of Cambus

This line is based on research by Belinda Dettman and Malcolm Gray

The last cadet branch of the Stewarts of Annat were a family of Stewarts who lived in Glassingall, Lendrick and the Carse of Cambus.  Glassingall is located in Dunblane parish.  This family is described in Stewarts of the South as follows.

1. Donald Stewart, son to Archibald Stewart, tacksman of Lendrick, a purchase of Sir Patrick Murray from Perth family, Callander parish, has one son and pays 330 of rent.

2. Hugh Stewart, uncle to the foregoing Donald Stewart, tacksman of the Carse of Camus, near Down (Doune) Lodge, Earl's estate.  Rent 100.  He left five sons:

  1. a. James, a tenant there with one son.

  2. b. John, a merchant vintner and farmer in the village of Kippen, Stirlingshire.  He has four sons:

    1. 1-4. One of them is a surgeon in Glasgow, and the rest are at home - not this one, a writer, the third is a merchant in Glasgow, and the fourth at home.  (It is uncertain what the author means by "the rest are at home" as the third son is in Glasgow, not at home.)

  3. c. Alexander Stewart, a merchant in Glasgow with one son.

  4. d. Hugh Stewart, a wright in Glasgow with sons, but I am not certain of their number.

  5. e. Archibald, a wright in Stirling, with a family of sons, but of their number I am not certain.

Lanrick or Lendrick?

There is some ambiguity as to whether this family held the property of Lanrick or Lendrick.  The two names seem to be used interchangeably in early documents.  Lendrick is located at the west end of Loch Venacher in Callander parish.  Lanrick is located just west of Doune very close to Carse of Cambus and Annat.

The following listings in Mitchell's Monumental Inscriptions pertain to this family, all from Kilmahog cemetery:

  1. 27         pelican plucking its breast, in her nest (Stewart crest).  Daniel STEWART, late farmer (at) Landrick, died 11 MAR 1846, age 89, wife Margaret MACKINLAY, 22 OCT 1848, age 83.

  2. 28         emblems of mortality.  1803.  Archibald STEWART, MAY 1791, wife Mary MCFARLAND, 24 MAY 1796, by son Daniel in ---- (illegible).

  3. 29         (broken) Archibald STEWART, farmer (at) Emdrick (Lendrick) --- Sept --- died MAY 1847, ----- who died 9 JUL 1861.  Elizabeth Buchanan STEWART, teacher (at) Callander, died 23 FEB 1862.

The Annat Family Tree shows the Stewarts of Glassingall descending from Archibald Stewart, youngest son of Alexander MacIain Stewart, 1st of Annat.  Stewarts of the South accounts for this branch as being the most junior supporting the evidence of the Annat Family Tree that this line branches from the main stem at a very early point.

        Muckle Kate Ferguson (nee Stewart), 1798-1872 "The Fattest Woman in Britain" meets Queen Victoria

        Photo and article excerpted from Perthshire in History and Legend by Archie McKerracher, (c) 1988 the Estate of Archie McKerracher, published by John Donald Publishers, Edinburgh, pp. 111-114.
      7. Has No Children Katherine STEWART a.k.a. "Muckle Kate Ferguson" b: 14 MAY 1798 in Lendrick, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland. Katharine married on 30 JAN 1835 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to John FERGUSON b: 6 APR 1802 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  They had no known children.  Katherine was known as "Muckle Kate Ferguson".  She was the innkeeper at Brig o' Turk and was reputed to be the largest woman in Britain in the 19th century.  See photo at the right.

        The following article excerpted from Perthshire in History and Legend by Archie McKerracher, (c) 1988 the Estate of Archie McKerracher, published by John Donald Publishers, Edinburgh, pp. 111-114.:

        Muckle Kate Ferguson [was known as] the fattest woman in Britain.  [Note: "Muckle" is Scots for "big".]  She was born Catherine Stewart at Landrick on Loch Venacher and grew up a slim, active girl.  She married Donald Ferguson [sic, John Ferguson] and settled down as the hostess of a local hostelry politely called 'Ferguson's Inn' at Brig o' Turk.  It was better known by its Gaelic name of Tigh Mhaide, "The House of Sticks", perhaps from the custom of keeping a reckoning by making notches on a stick by those who could not write.

        Kate Ferguson began to put on weight as she grew older and steadily increased in bulk until she weighed in at over 25 stone (350 pounds).  Her broad beaming face and hearty good humour made her inn a popular one, both with the locals and the many tourists who came by coach to visit the Trossachs.

        She entertained customers with lively conversation in a mixture of Gaelic and English, seated in a large chair in the small, smoke filled room where drinks were served.  While the serving girls brought in the drams Kate took the cash and dropped it into a large leather purse attached to her skirt which acted as her till.  Sometimes a generous gentleman might pay her more than was due and so it came about that Kate got out of the habit of giving change at all.  This eccentricity made her all the more renowned.

        In 1869 Queen Victoria made a private visit to nearby Invertrossachs House.  Although supposedly travelling informally, the Queen was accompanied by her daughters, the Princess Louise and Beatrice, Lady Churchill, and Colonel Ponsonby, and seventeen maids, footmen, cooks, coachmen, and the renowned John Brown, the Queen's personal servant.

        Queen Victoria had... learned of Muckle Kate Ferguson and decided the whole party should visit her.  Kate had been given warning of the visit and was standing outside her inn dressed in her finery when the royal party arrived.  She received the queen with Highland courtesy and native dignity, and the two enjoyed a friendly conversation.

        Queen Victoria recorded the event in her diary: "We stopped at what is called 'Ferguson's Inn', but is in fact the very poorest sort of Highland cottage.  Here lives Mrs. Ferguson, an immensely fat woman, and a well known character, who is quite nice and well dressed, but will not leave the place where she has lived all her life selling whisky.  She was brought out to see me, shaking hands with me and patting me.  She walks with a crutch and had to sit down."

        The Queen presented Kate with two sovereigns which she kept to her dying day and bequeathed to her posterity.  This incident made Kate famous throughout the land, and for years afterwards her portrait appeared in postcards in shop windows all over Britain.

        Less well known is the unfortunate misunderstanding which occurred due to Gaelic speaking Kate's difficulty with English.  It appears the Queen's party were greatly embarrassed when Kate offered them tea and "a gill a-piece".  All of them refused the apparent offer of the demon drink and departed quickly, leaving poor Kate wondering what she had done to offend.  All she had offered them was a "jeely piece" or jam sandwich!

        Muckle Kate Ferguson died in 1872 and her body was carried in a specially built coffin drawn by a team of horses.  Hundreds followed her funeral procession to St. Kessog's kirkyard at Callander.  Kate's old inn of Tigh Mhaide at Brig o' Turk has fallen into ruin but the old house beside it built for her retirement still stands and has been converted into a private house of the same name.  the front window still bears the marks where it was widened to allow Kate's coffin to pass through, it being too large to leave by the door.

      8. Has Children Anne STEWART b: 30 APR 1800 in Lendrick, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Anne married on 30 NOV 1821 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to John CLARK b: 1800 in Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland.  They had descendants.
      9. Has No Children Elisabeth STEWART b: 1803 in Lendrick, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Elisabeth never married. No record has been found of her birth, however she is found in census records and in the Lendrick family tree (see Malcolm Gray).

Where it precedes a semi-precise date of birth with the month only given, such as "ABT DEC 1855", then that means that the birth is recorded in the civil birth registrations for the quarter ending with that month.  Thus the person's birth was registered sometime between the beginning of October 1855 and the end of December 1855, but no baptism record has been found nor any more precise birth record.

  3. Where it precedes a year only, such as "ABT 1855", then it means that there is no information on the person's birth date at all and an educated guess has been made that he/she was probably born sometime around 1855.
