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.

The Stewarts of Auchraig were a cadet branch of the Stewarts of Ardvorlich.  Please refer to the Ardvorlich page for a full introduction.  They also had one cadet line who resided in Grodich in Glen Finglas.  Please refer to the Stewarts in Glen Finglas page for a full introduction to the Glen Finglas Stewarts.

The Stewarts in Auchraig

This family is introduced in Stewarts of the South as:

Duncan, brother to Major (James Beag) Stewart of Ardvorlich, was a tacksman of Auchraig, Port of Monteith parish, which was then the property of Ardvorlich.

Duncan had a son, Alexander, whose offspring are called Sliochd Alastir Oaig ("children of young Alexander").  Their descendants are as follows:

Their initial primary residence was Auchraig near Lake Rusky in Port of Menteith parish, just south of Loch Venacher and the Trossachs.

Duncan Oag Stewart of Auchraig and Inchcallbeg

Has Children Duncan Oag STEWART of Auchraig and Inchcallbeg b: ABT 1600 in Ardvorlich, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland, as the youngest son of Alexander Stewart, 1st of Ardvorlich

Duncan Stewart is described in Stewarts of the South as being the patriarch of Branches 3 & 4 of the Stewarts of Ardvorlich. He is described as: "Duncan Brother to Major Stewart of Ardvorlich Tacksman of Auchraig [in] Port Parish Monteith then the property of Ardvorlich. His son Alexander whose offspring are called Sliochd Alastir Oaig." And also as: "Duncan Oag of Ardvurlich commonly called Letter Stewart Tacksman of Letter & Auchraig then belonging to Ardvurlich Port Parish." "Oag" means "young", as in "Young Duncan".

Duncan is recorded in The Ardvorlich History as having been the "first" of this family to settle in Glen Finglas.  Duncan's eldest brother, James Stewart, 2nd of Ardvorlich, was responsible for The Clearing of Glen Finglas.  Afterwards, James was rewarded with lands in Glen Finglas which he divided into 8 portions and shared them with the major cadet branches of the Stewarts of Balquhidder, keeping 3 portions for himself.  James never resided in Glen Finglas but seems to have put Duncan in charge of his Glen Finglas lands.  Descendant information below would appear to indicate that the Ardvorlich portion of Glen Finglas comprised the west side of the Glen encompassing the farm of Grodich.

Duncan also held the lands of Auchraig and Inchalbeg near Lake Rusky in Menteith.  It is unclear where his primary residence was: Grodich, Auchraig, or Inchalbeg.  These lands are deep in the heart of Clan Graham country which must have made for a very uncomfortable holding after Duncan's oldest brother, James Beag Stewart, 2nd of Ardvorlich, murdered James Graham, Lord Kilpont, and prompted the Grahams to swear a blood feud against the Stewarts of Ardvorlich.

Duncan's testament is registered in the Dunblane Commissariat Records on 16 Nov 1632; "Stewart, Duncan, son to Alaster Stewart, in Ardvorlich."

Duncan's wife is unknown.  He was father of:

  1. Has Children Alasdair Oig STEWART of Auchraig b: ABT 1630 in Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.
    1. His descendants are presented below.
  2. Has Children Duncan Oig STEWART in Letter and Auchraig, believed to be son of the preceding Duncan.  He is suggested as the patriarch of Ardvorlich IV Branch - Letter Stewarts.

Alasdair Oig Stewart in Auchraig

Has Children Alasdair Oig STEWART of Auchraig b: ABT 1630 in Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to Stewarts of the South, Alexander Stewart was the patriarch of Branch 3 of the Stewarts of Ardvorlich. "Oig" is Gaelic for "young", as in "Young Alexander". According to MacGregor, Alexander was a witness to a bond by John Reidheugh of Wester Kerse to Janet Comrie, relict of William Stewart of Balemeanoch, and Alexander and Robert Stewart, their sons, for 1400 merks on 8 JUN 1650.  Alasdair is suggested as the father of:

  1. Has Children James STEWART in Glen Finglas b: ABT 1665 in Glen Finglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  James first name is not confirmed but is suggested by onomastics only.
    1. Has Children Donald Dubh STEWART in Grodich b: ABT 1695 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Donald is described in Stewarts of the South as "Donald Dubh, late tacksman of Grodich, Glenfinglas."
      1. Has Children James STEWART of Monbreachy b: ABT 1730 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.
        1. James' information and descendants are presented below under 1 Line.
      2. Has Children Duncan STEWART in Lettir on Loch Katrine b: ABT 1735 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.
        1. Duncan's information and descendants are presented below under 2 Line.
    2. Has Children Lieut. Alexander Grudairgorrach STEWART b: ABT 1700 in Perthshire, Scotland.
      1. Alexander's information and descendants are presented below under 6 Line.
  2. Has Children Son STEWART b: ABT 1670 in Perthshire, Scotland.  This son may be identical with his brother James. This son is shown as a placeholder ancestor of Lines 3, 4 & 5 of the Stewarts of Ardvorlich Branch III in Auchraig. Stewarts of the South does not indicate how these branches descend from Alasdair Oig Stewart in Auchraig. They could descend from Alasdair's son James, as do lines 1, 2 & 6, but they may descend separately.
    1. Has Children Son Line 3 STEWART b: ABT 1700 in Perthshire, Scotland
      1. Has Children John STEWART in Ruchoais b: ABT 1735 in Perthshire, Scotland.

Monbreachy (shown on the 19th century map above as "Monievrechie") is believed to derive from the Gaelic Monadh Bhreacaidh which means "speckled mount."

*** NOTE: Gartnafuaran Branch II contains a family of James Mor Stewart, tenant in Grodich who moved to Monbreachy.

This line is described in Stewarts of the South as:

Caution - this family appears nearly identical to Duncan Stewart in Ardcheanochdan of Glenbuckie Branch IX, Sliochd Gleanmagaolric.

This family is described in Stewarts of the South as:

Duncan Stewart, was tacksman of Letter, Lochcathrineside, in Callendar parish, which is the estate of Perth.  He was brother to the above James (Line 1a above). His sons are:

  1. John Stewart, is a subtenant of Toighbaid, Barony of Lendrick, Callander parish, which was once part of the Perth estate, but now belongs to Sir Patrick Murray of Auchtertyre.  John is a bachelor.
  2. Donald, his brother, is a cottager in Milton of Aberfoil.  He has one son who is a minor.
  3. David, who is a shepherd to his uncle James Stewart,
    1. has one son who is a minor.
  4. Charles Stewart, a natural son, is a lotter at Old Kilpatrick, Dumbartonshire.  He has one son, who is a minor.

Possibly the Duncan Stewart in Larg, Auchnahard and Ardcheanochdan who m Agnes Stewart

Has Children Duncan STEWART in Lettir on Loch Katrine b: ABT 1735 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to Stewarts of the South, "Duncan Stewart, was tacksman of Letter, Lochcathrineside, in Callendar parish, which is the estate of Perth. He was brother to the above James (Line 1a above)." MacGregor lists only John, Donald, and David as children of this family, however it appears MacGregor has confused them with the nearly identical contemporary family of Duncan Stewart in Ardcheanochdan. As the two properties were adjacent and the family names nearly identical, the confusion is understandable.

  1. Has No Children John STEWART in Toighbaid b: ABT 1775 in Letter of Strathgartney, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland. John is described in Stewarts of the South as: "John Stewart, is a subtenant of Toighbaid, Barony of Lendrick, Callander parish, which was once part of the Perth estate, but now belongs to Sir Patrick Murray of Auchtertyre. John is a bachelor." As this comment was written ca 1815 then it's possible John could have married after 1815.
  2. Has No Children Donald STEWART in Milton of Aberfoyle b: ABT 1780 in Letter of Strathgartney, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Donald is described in Stewarts of the South as: "Donald, [John's] brother, is a cottager in Milton of Aberfoil. He has one son who is a minor."
  3. Has No Children David STEWART b: ABT 1785 in Letter of Strathgartney, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  David is described in Stewarts of the South as: "David, who is a shepherd to his uncle James Stewart, has one son who is a minor."

Duncan had the following natural son by an unknown woman:

  1. Has No Children Charles STEWART b: ABT 1792 in Letter in Menteith, Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  Charles is described in Stewarts of the South as: "Charles Stewart, a natural son, is a lotter at Old Kilpatrick, Dumbartonshire. He has one son, who is a minor."

5 line - Duncan Stewart in Drunkie


Drunkie (Invertrossachs)
www.multimap.com

Drunkie is the old name for the settlement now known as Invertrossachs.  It was located on the south shore of Loch Venacher in the parish of Port of Menteith.

Stewarts of the South makes an error in the numbering of the lines of this family and repeats repeats 4 Line.  We have corrected this family to be 5 Line.

This family is described in Stewarts of the South as:

Alexander Stewart son to Duncan Stewart late tenant of ?Drunky, Port parish, Lordship of Menteith, now the property of Mr. Hunter in Edinburgh.  He (Alexander) is a grocer in Glasgow.  He has

  1. three sons in good circumstances; one of them is a student of Divinity.

    3. Has No Children Son STEWART b: ABT 1805 in Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland

6 line - Lieutentant Alexander Grudairgorrach Stewart

Stewarts of the South erroneously accounts for this line as 5 Line after having repeated 4 Line.  We have corrected this family to be 6 Line.

This family is described in Stewarts of the South as:

James Stewart had an uncle Alexander Stewart, commonly called Grudairgorrach.  He (Alexander) was a Lieutenant in Colonel Stewart Invernenty's Regiment in the year 1745. He (James or Alexander?) left one son

  1. James who has two sons, who are slate quarriers on the Isle of Bute.  His two sons are:
    1. David, who has four sons who are minors.
    2. James, who has four sons who are minors.

This finishes Sliochd Alastair Oaig.

Has Children Lieut. Alexander Grudairgorrach STEWART b: ABT 1700 in Perthshire, Scotland.  Alexander is described in Stewarts of the South as follows: "James Stewart had an uncle Alexander Stewart, commonly called Grudairgorrach. He (Alexander) was a Lieutenant in Colonel Stewart Invernenty's Regiment in the year 1745."  He was father of:

    1. Has No Children Alexander STEWART b: ABT 1760 in Perthshire, Scotland.  Alexander is suggested by onomastics only. He is not mentioned in Stewarts of the South and is presumed to have died in childhood.
    2. Has No Children David STEWART b: ABT 1765 in Perthshire, Scotland.  David is described in Stewarts of the South as a slate quarrier in Bute with four minor sons.
    3. Has No Children James STEWART b: ABT 1770 in Perthshire, Scotland.  James is described in Stewarts of the South as being a slate quarrier in Bute with four minor sons.

There are no births listed in the Callendar OPR in Grodich with a father named Donald.  Thus, though Donald may have owned Grodich he was either residing elsewhere when his children were born or none of his children are recorded in the Callander OPR.  An excellent candidate for Donald Duibh Stewart in Grodich is:

Donald STEWART married on 31 DEC 1734 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Janet BUCHANAN b: ABT 1712 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  They had the following children:

Legend

Has Children = This person has known descendants.

ABT = "about" and is used in three ways:

  1. Where it precedes a precise date of birth, such as "ABT 3 DEC 1855", then it means that the person was baptized on 3 DEC 1795, but his/her exact date of birth is unknown.

  2. 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.
