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 Auchnahard were a cadet branch of the Stewarts of Annat and the Stewarts of Ardvorlich.  Please refer to the Ardvorlich and Annat pages for a full introduction.  This family was also the leading family of the Stewarts in Glen Finglas.  It is essential for researchers of this family to refer to the Stewarts in Glen Finglas page for a full introduction to the Glen Finglas Stewarts.

The "Bains of Glenfinglas" - The Stewarts in Auchnahard

In the 17th and 18th centuries Glen Finglas was overrun by Stewarts.  They were the senior tenants in Glen Finglas and the most prominently represented surname.  However, they didn't all come from the same Stewart family.  We have identified at least four separate major branches of Stewarts who resided in Glen Finglas during that time period.  With so many Stewarts living together, some means of nicknames became necessary in order to differentiate which family was which.  The Stewarts who lived in Duart were called the "Duart Stewarts" or just Duart for short.  Thus, James Stewart in Duart was referred to in casual conversation as "James Duart." 

The Stewart family who ultimately resided in Auchnahard was nicknamed "The Bains of Glenfinglas."  "Bain" is an Anglicization of the Gaelic word bàn which means "fair haired."  This designation presumably differentiated them from their distant cousins of the Stewarts of Glenbuckie who also resided in Glen Finglas and who were called "Dubh" or "dark haired."

We now continue with the story of the "fair haired" Stewarts in Glen Finglas:

John Buidhe Mor Stewart, in Glen Finglas

Has Children John Buidhe Mor STEWART in Glen Finglas b: ABT 1625 in Annat, Doune, Perthshire, Scotland as the natural (illegitimate) son of John Stewart, 2nd of Annat

Stewarts of the South describes John as: "John Stewart of Annat had a natural son called Iain Buigh mor. He give him a farm in Glenfinglas. His descendants are now called Bains."

John was called "Iain Buidhe Mor" or "Big John of the Yellow Hair" although the alternative spelling in Stewarts of the South of "Buigh" would mean "Big John the Effeminate" (unlikely); the former is preferred. This John is recorded in The Ardvorlich History as the earliest verifiable ancestor of the Stewarts in Glenfinglas and referenced in "1663 John S. in Glenfinglas Test[ament] (Auchnahard), James S., his lawful son. Another James S. married his daughter. Another daughter married Walter S. in Auchinferron (Gartnafueran?) -- DCR [Dunblane Commissariat Records]" This would suggest that John died in 1663. The fact that John Buidhe Mor's grandson, John Ban Mor had a daughter who married Walter Stewart in Gartnafuaran and another daughter who married James Stewart in in Duart suggests that the reference is confused and is referring to the later John Ban Mor.

The Annat Tree refers to this John as "John Dow Stewart in Glenfinglas, natural son". However John Dow Stewart, the natural son, actually refers to John Dubh Beag Stewart the natural son of Duncan Stewart, 5th of Glen Finglas. John Dubh Beag Stewart was responsible for the Clearing of Glen Finglas. Several generations of the Glenbucke Stewarts were referred to as "Dubh" ("Black"), meaning "dark-haired", whereas this John and his descendants were referred to as "Bain", the "Fair-Haired Stewart", presumably to differentiate them from their Glenbuckie cousins. The Annat Tree has confused the two Johns.

The Ardvorlich History says that the earliest verifiable ancestor of this family was "John Bhuie Stewart" who was "first in the Glen" and was "preceded by a John or twa".  Stewarts of the South, Ardvorlich Section IX - "The Bains of Glenfinglas" gives the origins of this branch as: "John Stewart of Annat had a natural son called Iain Buigh mor.  He give him a farm in Glenfinglas.  His descendants are now called Bains."  The accounting of the Bains in Stewarts of the South matches with the accounting of the Glenfinglas Stewarts in The Ardvorlich History.  Thus, we follow Stewarts of the South and suggest that John Buidhe Mor Stewart was a natural son of John Stewart of Annat.  Chronology would suggest that the John of Annat in question would have to be John Stewart, 2nd of Annat.

Sometime around 1620, following the clearing of Glenfinglas, 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, but left out the Annat family. Chronology 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. By later accountings, it would appear that their portion was Auchnahard. However, Mrs Stewart of Milton's Account says that this family resided first in Duart, then in Grodich, and only after 1750 did they move to Auchnahard, so we cannot be certain where in Glen Finglas this family began.

The Ardvorlich History claims that the later John Buidhe Mor was preceded by "a John or two". It seems likely that the Annat portion of Glen Finglas probably went first to John Stewart, future 2nd Laird of Annat, while Alexander was still alive, then John, future 2nd of Annat, likely held the property 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.

John's death date of 1663 comes from The Annat Tree submitted to the IGI. We presently have no further reference for this death date.

John Buidhe Mor was the father of:

  1. Has No Children John STEWART b: ABT 1657 in Auchnahard, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  No record of John's existence has been found. He is suggested by onomastics only. He may be identical with the "Son" Stewart, shown here as his un-named brother.
  2. Has Children James STEWART in Glen Finglas b: ABT 1660 in Auchnahard, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.
  3. Has Children Son STEWART b: ABT 1662 in Auchnahard, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.
    1. Has Children Walter STEWART in Dunan b: ABT 1710 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Walter was the patriarch of Line 2 of the Bains of Glenfinglas.  Walter and his descendants are presented further below.
  4. Donald STEWART m Elizabeth BUCHANAN, resided at Bellimanoch in Callander, 18 MAR 1675 (DCR)

James Stewart in Glen Finglas

Has Children James STEWART in Glen Finglas b: ABT 1660 in Auchnahard, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland, as the son of John Buidhe Mor Stewart, in Glen Finglas, shown just above.  James is recorded in The Ardvorlich History as having succeeded his his father in Auchnahard. Mrs Stewart of Milton (a gr-gr-granddaughter) contradicts this saying that these Stewarts were in Grodich prior to 1750 and in Duart before that.  She also mentions an Alexander in Auchnahard in 1707 who left Glen Finglas about 1744-1748 (who may or may not have been from this family.)  Thus we cannot be certain exactly where in Glen Finglas James resided.  James married in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Elizabeth BUCHANAN b: ABT 1665.  They had the following known children:

  1. Has Children John Ban Mor STEWART in Auchnahard b: 20 JAN 1711 in Balimenoch (of Leny), Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  John married on 24 JAN 1733 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Mary BUCHANAN of The Offrans. (This is the Offrans of Strathgartney, Callander, Perthshire, on Loch Venacher, just south of Glenfinglas.) She was born ABT 2 MAR 1711/12 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland, daughter of John Buchanan in the Offrans and Janet Buchanan.  Stewarts of the South describes John as: "John Bain Mor, late tenant at Auchnahard, Glenfinglas, left five sons."  The Ardvorlich History notes that John Ban Mor did not reside in Auchnahard until sometime between 1744-1748.  According to Mrs. Stewart of Milton's Account, John Ban Mor resided in Grodich before moving to Auchnahard and implies that Duart had been the previous home for more than a generation.  This was about the same time that his brother Alexander left Glen Finglas. It may also be the time their father died. John became head of the largest and most prosperous branch of Stewarts in Glenfinglas. They became known as the "Bains of Glenfinglas". (Bain is an Anglo corruption of ban which means "fair haired".)  John was the lead defendant in "The Glen Affair" (1755-1752) in which the tenants of Glen Finglas were in dispute with their landlord over unpaid rent. John Ban Mor was still alive in 1772 when the matter was resolved.  The Ardvorlich History claims that shortly after 1860 "practically the whole tribe emigrated to Canada and settled in Ontario."

    John Stewart and Elizabeth Buchanan had the following children, all but one of whom had descendants.  For readability, their descendants are all presented separately below:

    1. Has Children Janet STEWART, in Glenfinglas b: ABT 1734 in Perthshire, Scotland
    2. Has Children James STEWART, in Invercarnaig b: 23 OCT 1736 in Inverlochlarig, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland
    3. Has Children John STEWART, in Auchnahard b: 10 APR 1740 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
    4. Has Children Alexander STEWART, Baillie in Glasgow b: 25 JUL 1744 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
    5. Has Children Robert Ban STEWART, in Auchnahard b: 2 NOV 1747 in Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
    6. Has No Children Elizabeth STEWART b: 2 MAY 1751 in Auchnahard, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
    7. Has Children Mary STEWART b: 20 FEB 1754 in Auchnahard, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
    8. Has Children Duncan STEWART, in Auchnahard and Upper Duart b: 10 MAY 1756 in Auchnahard, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
  2. Alexander? STEWART in Auchnahard, b. ABT 1715 in Glen Finglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  No record of Alexander's birth has been found.  Mitchell's Monumental Inscriptions quotes Mrs. Stewart of Milton who recalled: "Alexander STEWART who had Auchnahard and left Glenfinglas was brother of John (grandfather of STEWART of Milton)"  John Stewart of Milton was a grandson of John Ban Mor STEWART by his son Robert Ban Mor.  Alexander would have left Glenfinglas ca 1745.  This entry is noted in connection with the burial of Robert STEWART in Duart 1733-1818 of Gartnafuaran Branch IV and not in connection with the burial the Auchnahard Stewarts.  Old Scots custom did not distinguish between "brother" and "brother-in-law".  The term "brother" was used for both.  If "full brother" was intended then the term "brother german" was usually used.  When the term "brother" was used on its own then it could refer to any of full brother, half-brother, or brother-in-law.

    Callander parish records show the most likely candidate for this Alexander was one who married Beatrix Stewart and resided in Grodich and Auchnahard and possibly later in Bochastle.

    It appears more likely that Beatrix Stewart was the one who was the child of James Stewart in Glen Finglas and not Alexander.  In which case the "brother" reference above likely refers to "brother-in-law".  However, just in case the reference was intended to mean "brother-german" then we will leave this Alexander here for reference.

  3. Beatrix STEWART b ABT 1720 in Glen Finglas, Callander Perthshire, Scotland.  Beatrix is suspected to have been a daughter of James Stewart in Glen Finglas and to have married to Alexander STEWART possibly of the Stewarts of Edraleachdach Family (Glenbuckie Branch V) or from the Stewarts in Duart (Gartnafuaran Branch IV).  If it was Alexander in Bochastle then he could be said to have "left Glen Finglas" for Bochastle and Milton of Cambus.  (See notes on Beatrix's alleged brother, Alexander, for more information.)

Descendants of John Ban Mor Stewart in Auchnahard

John Ban Mor Stewart in Auchnahard is introduced above.  His children and descendants are presented here:

1. Janet Stewart

Janet STEWART, b. ABT 1734 in Perthshire, Scotland.  Janet is not listed in the full accounting of this family in The Ardvorlich History.  However the appendix to The Ardvorlich History contains the following reference: "Another daughter (of John Ban Mor) married Walter S. in Auchinferron (Gartnafueran?)"  Although the preceding reference does not give the daughter's name, it would appear to be Janet Stewart who married Walter STEWART, 10th (and last) of Gartnafuaran, who is described as having married on 18 APR 1748 in Glasgow to a Janet Stewart "clandestinely" while they were both living in Glenfinglas.  Their clandestine marriage could be due to the fact that she may have been no older than 15. (Although it is possible that she could have been born before her parents were married, or she could have been from a previous marriage, however she does fulfill the naming pattern by being first daughter.)  The children of Janet and Walter Stewart are presented on the Gartnafuaran page.

2. James Stewart in Inverncarnaig

Has Children James STEWART, in Invercarnaig b: 23 OCT 1736 in Inverlochlarig, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland, bap 28 OCT 1736 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland, shown above as a son of John Ban Mor Stewart in Auchnahard.

James is described in Stewarts of the South as: "James Stewart, late Tacksman Inverchearnaig, Braes of Balquhidder, Earl of Murray's estate. He left one son...(At this point their appears to be text missing in the original transcription or possibly in the original document, as the subsequent sentences do not follow from the previous.)...of a numerous family, but left one son whose name is...Alexander Stewart of Auchnahaurd." The Ardvorlich History says that James had only one son, thus it is suggested that the remainder of his sons must have died in infancy.  According to Mrs. Stewart of Milton's account: "John Stewart and Mary Buchanan - their son James was grandfather or father to the Balquhidder Stewarts.  James had a son Alistir Mor.  James was in Lanrick."  The "Balquhidder Stewarts" that Mrs. Stewart of Milton was referring to are James and John Stewart, sons of Alastair Mor Stewart, son of this James Stewart.  On 24 MAR 1768 James sponsored the baptism of Alexander Stewart, "child begotten in fornication" by John Stewart in Monachaltuarach and Catharine Ferguson, his servant. Does this imply that James was related to John Stewart in Monachaltuarach? 

James married on 31 JAN 1763 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Margaret STEWART , in Lendrick, daughter of Archibald Stewart and Mary McFarlane in Lendrick of the Stewarts of Annat.  She was bap. 6 MAY 1739 in Lendrick, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  James and Margaret had the following children:

  1. Has No Children John STEWART b: 26 DEC 1763 in Auchnahard, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  John is presumed to have died prior to the birth of his same named brother. (He is not shown in Malcolm Gray's notes, but is found in the Balquhidder OPR.)
  2. Has Children Mary STEWART b: ABT 15 NOV 1765 in Innercharnaig, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland.  She married on 30 JUN 1796 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Duncan DRUMMOND b: ABT 1770 in Cois, Perthshire, Scotland.  They had the following children:
    1. Has Children Margaret DRUMMOND b: 1798 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Margaret married on 26 MAY 1827 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Robert STEWART of Offerans and Culnagrein b: 25 JUL 1798 in Blairgarrie, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland, son of James Stewart of Chrochavie of the Stewarts of Gartnafuaran Branch IV.  From Mitchell's Monumental Inscriptions: JANE 31.1.1842. 18; only son Jas 28.5.1845 13; Isabella 13.2.1852 15. and Eliz 23.7.1904 65

      Margaret Drummond and Robert Stewart had the following children:

      1. Has Children Mary STEWART b: 26 MAY 1830 in Blargarie, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.
      2. Has No Children James STEWART b: 10 MAR 1832 in Blairgarie, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
      3. Has No Children Janet STEWART b: 23 JUL 1834 in Blairgarie, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
      4. Has No Children Isabella STEWART b: 28 NOV 1836 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland
      5. Has No Children Elizabeth STEWART b: 11 OCT 1838 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland
    2. Has No Children Isabella DRUMMOND b: ABT 1800 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
    3. Has No Children Robert DRUMMOND b: ABT 1800 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
    4. Has No Children Janet DRUMMOND b: ABT 1800 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
  3. Has No Children John STEWART b: 21 APR 1768 in Innercharnaig, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland.  He may be the John Stewart, son of James, who, along with his brother, Alexander, is recorded by Mitchell as being a tacksman in Atholl.

  4. Has No Children Archibald STEWART b: ABT 16 APR 1770 in Innercharnaig, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland.  Archibald's name is not known for certain. The OPR baptismal entry is blank or difficult to read. Onomastics would suggest that his name is Archibald. According to Stewarts of the South and Mrs Stewart of Milton's Account, Archibald's father, James Stewart in Invercarnaig, had only one son who survived to adulthood and that was Alastair Mor. Thus Archibald must have died in childhood.

  5. Has No Children Janet STEWART b: 26 APR 1772 in Innercharnaig, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland. She married on 10 DEC 1793 in Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland to Donald STEWART b: ABT 1770 in Auchleskine, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland.
  6. Has No Children Isabella STEWART b: ABT 13 MAY 1774 in Innercharnaig, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland.  She married on 3 JUL 1795 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Andrew BUCHANAN , Of Ballimenoch Of Leanie (Leny) b: ABT 11 SEP 1763 in Farmieston, Balimenoch, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.
  7. Has Children Alastair Mhor STEWART, in Auchnahard b: 30 MAR 1777 in Innercharnaig, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland.  Stewarts of the South says "Alexander Stewart of Auchnahaurd, Glenfinglas, [has] one-eighth part of [Glenfinglas], [and is] married to Donald Stewart's sister at Auch [in] Glenurchay (Glenorchy, Argyll). He had five sons who are all minors." And later it says that Alastair had "a spark in the throat which cannot be quenched". The Ardvorlich History identifies him as Alastair Mor and also says that his wife Christian was "Auch's sister". Furthermore, according to both Stewarts of the South and The Ardvorlich History Alexander/Alastair was the only son of James Stewart in Invercarnaig to survive to adulthood.  Alastair married on 27 JUL 1803 in Callander and Fortingall, Perthshire, Scotland to Christian STEWART b: 1771 in Auch, Glenorchy, Argyll, Scotland of the Stewarts of Cashlie and Auch. Mrs. Stewart in Milton refers to Christian as a sister of Donald Stewart in Auch. They had the following children:

    1. Has No Children James STEWART in Inverlochlarig b: 1804 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to Mrs. Stewart of Milton's Account: "James who married Cath. Stewart from Edinburgh - he was in the Braes of Balquhidder." According to The Ardvorlich History, James and Catherine Stewart had no children.  James is presumed to have married to Catharine STEWART, b: ABT 16 MAR 1821 in Canongate, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland, daughter of Alexander Stewart (son of John Mor Bhuntata Stewart of The "Flint" Stewarts in Leachdanscridan) and Christian McDonald, sister of Donald McDonald of Monachyle), although no record of their marriage has been found.
    2. [Argentine flag]Has No Children Alexander STEWART b: ABT 16 APR 1807 in Auchnahard, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Alexander married Margaret KING b: ABT 1807 in Scotland and moved to Buenos Ayres, Argentina.
    3. Has No Children John STEWART, in Lanrick and Inverlochlarig b: ABT 26 NOV 1809 in Auchnahard, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to Mrs. Stewart of Milton's Account: "John who was in the Braes [of Balquhidder] afterwards.  John died unmarried in 1872.  He at one time managed farms in Glenlyon for his uncles.  They had Cashlie & Auch.  John then came to Lanrick and afterwards went to the Braes [of Balquhidder]."
    4. Has Children Margaret STEWART b: 1811 in Auchnahard, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Margaret married Alexander MCNAUGHTON b: 1806 in Moar, Fortingall, Perthshire, Scotland.  They had descendants.
    5. Has No Children Donald STEWART of Auchalader, b: 26 JUL 1814 in Auchnahard, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  No birth record has been found for Donald. He is found in family records and in The Account of Mrs Stewart of Milton and in census records. In 1871 and 1881 Donald was residing in Auchalader, Glen Orchy, Argyll, Scotland and was a farmer of 20,000 acres -- an enormous farm. According to Malcolm Gray's notes, Donald had a natural son named Archibald. Mrs Stewart of Milton mentions no such son, however we have received information from researcher David Paterson confirming Archibald's existence. Donald died on 9 AUG 1898 at Auchallander, Glenorchy, Argyll, Scotland at the age of 84. His death record shows his parents as Alexander Stewart and Christian Stewart. Donald never married but had relations with Margaret MACKAY and had the following natural son:
      1. Archibald STEWART, b abt 1850 in Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland, d 28 JAN 1892 in Auchallander, Glenorchy, Argyll, Scotland. Archibald's death record shows he was born illegitimate to Donald Stewart and Margaret MacKay.  Archibald married on 9 MAR 1882 in Edindonich, Glenorchy, Argyll, Scotland to Elizabeth Forrest BROWN. They had the following children:
        1. Christina STEWART, b 26 FEB 1883 in Glenorchy, Argyll, Scotland.
        2. Donald STEWART, b abt 1886 in Glenorchy, Argyll, Scotland.
        3. Helen Muir STEWART, b abt 1891 in Glenorchy, Argyll, Scotland. She is cited in the following extract: "Mr MacNaughton farmer at Inverlochlarig who married Miss McIntyre [in] Iyhnabloir(?). His mother was a Stewart, a sister of Stewart in Auchnallader, (an aunt) of Helen Muir Stewart – Dec. 27th 1925 - Information from Helen Muir Stewart." This refers to Margaret Stewart, sister of Donald Stewart of Auchalader, above, who married Alexander McNaughton. Margaret would have been a great-aunt to Helen Muir Stewart. John McNaughton, son of Margaret Stewart and Alexander McNaughton, resided at Inverlochlarig. http://www.hostmybb.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=251&mforum=stewart
        4. Archena STEWART, b. abt. 1893 in Glenorchy, Argyll, Scotland. She is not confirmed as a child of this family. She is found residing with this family in 1901 in Edinburgh, but it must be noted that her approximated date of birth falls a year after her alleged father died. It is quite possible the census could be out by a year, or she may not be a child of this family.
    6. Has No Children Charles STEWART in Auchnahard b: ABT 25 DEC 1816 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  He married on 16 OCT 1860 in Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland to Marjory STEWART b: 19 APR 1832 in Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland, daughter of Peter Stewart of the Caleb Stewarts in Strathyre (a cadet of the Stewarts of Glenogle).  The 1881 census shows Charles living on Glenfinglas Road, Auchnahard. The Ardvorlich History says that Charles married Marjory Stewart who was as "a Caleb, John of Grodich's sister". The Caleb Stewarts were a cadet branch of the Stewarts of Glenogle. Marjory was actually sister-in-law of John Stewart of Grodich rather than his sister, but 19th century Scottish custom did not differentiate between sister and sister-in-law. According to Mrs. Stewart of Milton's Account, Charles was a son of Alexander Stewart in Auchnahard. She says later: "Charles Stewart before mentioned (brother of John and James in the Braes of Balquhidder) died in Callander."
  8. Has No Children Donald STEWART b: 31 MAY 1779 in Innercharnaig, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland.  Presumed to have died young.
  9. Has No Children Margaret STEWART b: 4 AUG 1782 in Innercharnaig, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland

3. John Stewart in Auchnahard

Has Children John STEWART, in Auchnahard b: 10 APR 1740 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland, shown above a son of John Ban Mor Stewart in Auchnahard.  This John died in 1783.  Stewarts of the South says "John Stewart, late tenant at Auchnahaird, left one son, called "John Tacksman of Grodlick"  [Grodich].  One-eighth of Glenfinglas. He has one son who is a minor."

  4. Has Children James STEWART b: 1792 in Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  James moved to Clapham, Yorkshire, England and married a woman named Louisa.  Stewarts of the South says that James became "a clark in London."  According to Mrs. Stewart of Milton's Account, "James, another uncle of mine, left there [Glen Finglas] and went to England, and was factor on properties in Lancashire.  His daughter married the Honourable Viscount Peel, Lord Ashton." (This would appear to be Arthur Wellesley Peel, 1st Viscount Peel, MP and Speaker of the House of Commons, 3 AUG 1829 to 24 OCT 1912 who is recorded as having married Adelaide Dugdale and having had a son William Wellesley Peel, 2nd Viscount Peel, later Earl Peel, b 1929.  Mrs Stewart of Milton's claim here is hard to fathom: that a Viscount would marry a clerk's daughter who descended from a farming family in Glen Finglas.  However, the daughter in question was her first-cousin, so one would think she'd have first-hand knowledge, despite the fact that she had at least 24 Stewart surnamed first-cousins (and an unknown number of first-cousins by her aunts who married non-Stewarts whom we are not tracking.)  It seems far more likely that one of these daughters married someone in the employ of the Viscount, rather than the Viscount himself.  James is found in 1851 residing in Clapham, Yorkshire, England with the following family.  He is shown as born in Glenfinglas, Perthshire, Scotland and is employed as a land agent and farmer of 70 acres.  James and his family have not been found in census records after 1851 and may have emigrated.  James married on 4 FEB 1834 in St Mary, Luton, Bedford, England, near London, to  Louisa DYER, b 1810 in Luton, Bedfordshire, England.  They had the following children:
    1. Has No Children Mary Louise STEWART b: ABT 25 APR 1835 in Clapham, Yorkshire, England
    2. Has No Children Jessie Henrietta STEWART b: ABT 13 DEC 1836 in Clapham, Yorkshire, England
    3. Has No Children Charles James STEWART b: ABT 1 JUN 1840 in Clapham, Yorkshire, England
  5. Has No Children Katharine STEWART b: ABT 4 JUN 1793 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Katharine is shown in 1851 living in Coilantogle, unmarried.  Mrs Stewart of Milton says that Katherine died in Coilantogle unmarried.
  6. Has Children Margaret STEWART b: 1796 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Margaret married on 8 APR 1832 in Hamilton, Lanark, Scotland to James WHYTE b: ABT 1790 in Devonhill.  Their later descendants can be found here.

    1. Janet Mackie WHYTE, b. ABT 26 Jul 1831 in Govan, Lanark, Scotland.

    2. William Stewart WHYTE, b. 02 MAR 1833 in Govan, Lanark, Scotland.

  7. Has No Children Alexander "Sandy" Donachie STEWART, in Auchnahard, b: 1797 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Alexander never married nor had children.  Alexander is described in Stewarts of the South as being "with his father at Glenfinglas" ca. 1815-1820.  The Ardvorlich History shows no family for him.  According to Mrs. Stewart of Milton's Account, Alexander resided at Duart for a while with his nephew Duncan Stewart, brother to Mrs. Stewart in Milton.  She mentions later: "Alexander Stewart in Auchnahard was designed Alastir Donachie – Donachie being my grandfather (on father’s side).  The other Alexander in Glenfinlas was Alastir Rob. Robert being my husband’s grandfather (uncle) [grandfather]."  The 1881 census shows Alexander living at Glenfinglas Road, Achnahard, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland. 

  8. Has Children Robert STEWART, in Drunkie (Invertrossachs) in Port of Menteith, b: ABT 1801 in Invertrossach, Strathgartney, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  He married on 16 JAN 1835 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Mary STEWART b: 25 JUL 1811 in Edraleachdach, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland, daughter of Walter Stewart, 2nd of Lorachan and Edraleachdach (Branch V of the Glenbuckie Stewarts) and Elizabeth McDonald of the Monachyle family.  Stewarts of the South says Robert was "with his father at Glenfinglas" ca. 1815-1820.  The Ardvorlich History describes Robert as: "Robert, a farmer at Drunkie, who married Monachyle's sister, and had one daughter who married Duncan, now in Monachyle, another married John Stewart of the Milton."  However, it was actually Robert's mother-in-law who was Monachyle's sister.  Robert and Mary Stewart had the following children:
    1. Has Children Elisabeth STEWART b: ABT 21 FEB 1836 in Tarnduin, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  She married on 1 SEP 1859 in Duddington, Portobello, Midlothian, Scotland to James MORISON b: ABT 8 MAY 1836 in St. Nicholas, Aberdeen, Scotland.  They had the following children:
      1. Has No Children James Fletcher MORISON b: 28 MAY 1859 in Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland
      2. Has No Children Robert Walter Carruthers MORISON b: 16 JUN 1860 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
      3. Has No Children Mary Agnes Johnstone MORISON b: 11 MAR 1862 in Auchterarder, Perthshire, Scotland
      4. Has No Children William Atherton MORISON b: 20 JUL 1863 in Auchterarder, Perthshire, Scotland
      5. Has No Children Jessie Scott Moyes MORISON b: 27 FEB 1865 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
    2. Has Children Mary STEWART b: ABT 7 MAY 1838 in Tarnduin, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  She married on 14 JUN 1859 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Duncan STEWART b: ABT 2 JUL 1809 in Monachyle, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland, son of Duncan Stewart and Ann McDonald of the Stewarts of Glenogle and Monachyle.  Mary and Duncan had the following children:
      1. Has No Children John McDonald STEWART b: 5 DEC 1863 in Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland
      2. Has No Children Mary Ann STEWART b: 4 JUL 1871 in Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland
    3. Has No Children Margaret STEWART b: ABT 25 FEB 1840 in Tarnduin, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
    4. Has No Children Christina STEWART b: ABT 2 MAR 1842 in Drunkie (Invertrossachs), Strathgartney, Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  She married on 25 OCT 1872 in Lochan House, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to James LANGMUIR b: 1848 in Scotland.
    5. Has Children Agnes Jane STEWART, "Mrs. Stewart of Milton", b: 5 DEC 1843 in Drunkie (Invertrossachs), Strathgartney, Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  Agnes is the "Mrs Stewart of Milton" referenced in The Ardvorlich History.  Agnes was the author of an extensive genealogy of her extended family which she dictated to John McGregor of McGregor in 1905, which can be found in full at The Account of Mrs Stewart of Milton and is referenced frequently throughout this page.  Agnes married on 30 JAN 1866 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to her cousin, John STEWART of the Milton of Callander (son of Robert Ban Stewart in Auchnahard, above) b: 21 NOV 1815 in Milton, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.
      1. Their children are presented above under John Stewart of the Milton. 
    6. Has Children Duncan STEWART b: ABT 29 JAN 1846 in Drunkie (Invertrossachs), Strathgartney, Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to Mrs. Stewart of Milton's Account, "Duncan Stewart, my only brother, lived there [Duart] for some time with his uncle Alexander.  Duncan left and went to live about Dunblane."  The Ardvorlich History says that Duncan married Mary Liddon although no record of their marriage has been found.  Duncan is found in 1891 residing in Glenfinglas Farm House, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland with 24 year old Mary A Leyden, b 1867 in Dunblane, Perthshire.  She is employed as Duncan's housekeeper.  Thus, it would appear that Duncan married his housekeeper.  They have not been found in 1901.

      Duncan is presumed to have married to Mary LIDDON b: ABT 1850 in Scotland, although no record of their marriage has been found.  They had the following children:

      1. Has No Children Mary STEWART b: AFT 1891 in Scotland
      2. Has No Children John STEWART b: AFT 1891 in Scotland
    7. Has Children Robina STEWART b: ABT 4 JAN 1849 in Drunkie (Invertrossachs), Strathgartney, Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  Robina married on 5 FEB 1878 in Blythswood, Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland to Nathaniel CORSON b: ABT 15 JAN 1850 in Durisdeer, Dumfries, Scotland.  They had the following family:
      1. Has No Children George Stewart CORSON b: 1 AUG 1878 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
      2. Has No Children Robert Stewart CORSON b: 31 DEC 1879 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
  9. Has No Children Janet "Jessie" STEWART b: ABT 5 MAY 1803 in Brenchoil, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Janet is described in The Ardvorlich History as "Jessie Dullater, who had no family."  There are two Dullaters: Easter and Wester.  They probably resided at Easter which is directly across the Eas Gobhain (Smith's Water) from Coilantogle.  Brenchoil is on Loch Katrine.  According to Mrs Stewart of Milton's account: "Janet married ___ McLaren from Ardchulary and died in Dullater."  Janet married on 18 APR 1843 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland to Dugald MCLAREN of Ardchullary b: 3 JUL 1806 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  They resided at Dullater, Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland and had no children.
  10. Has Children Peter STEWART b: 1803 in Coilantogle, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Peter is described in Stewarts of the South as being "with his father at Glenfinglas" ca. 1815-1820.  According to Mrs Stewart of Milton's Account: "Peter, Married ___ Stewart, and died in Colintogle."  Peter is found in 1851 residing at Coilantogle with his brother John and sister Catherine.  In 1861 and 1871 Peter is found in Coilantogle with his family.  Peter married on 29 JAN 1856 in Alloa, Clackmanan, Scotland to his cousin Elizabeth "Betsey" STEWART b: 1827 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland, daughter of Robert Ban Stewart (above).  They had the following children:

    1. Has No Children Duncan STEWART b: 26 JUN 1859 in Tarndun, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Duncan is not found with his parents in 1861 or 1871 and is presumed to have died in infancy.
    2. Has Children Catharine STEWART b: 13 SEP 1862 in Tarndun, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  She married on 26 FEB 1879 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to William DOW b: 5 NOV 1859 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  They had the following family:
      1. Has No Children Elizabeth DOW b: ABT 1878 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
      2. Has No Children Jane DOW b: ABT 1880 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
  11. Has No Children Elizabeth STEWART b: 1804 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to Mrs Stewart of Milton, Elizabeth never married and died in Glenfinglas.  Inventory of the Estate of Elizabeth Stewart, Sometime Residing at Glenfinglass, Parish of Callander, d. on or about 1 Mar 1852 in Callander.  Inventory made and reported by her brother, John Stewart, tenant of Cullintogle, near Callander.

Walter Stewart in Dunan of Ardvorlich


An Dùnan
www.multimap.com


Downan in Ardvorlich
www.nls.uk

The next line of descendants of Iain Buidh Mhor Stewart of the Bains of Glenfinglas was one Walter Stewart in Dunan, Ardvorlich, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland.  Walter is described in Stewarts of the South as:

There was one Walter, cousin to Doal Ban Mor, tacksman in Ardvorlich, who left four sons:

1. William Stewart, schoolmaster at Summerline Flanders Moss, who has three sons:

  1. A merchant in Hamburgh. (Germany?)

  2. A clark in Glasgow.

  3. An assistant to his father at Summerline.

2.  His second son is in Lord Down's (Doune's) work. He has four sons:

  1. the oldest [are] Massons

  2. (not mentioned but the plural preceding would imply that the second son was also a mason)

  3. the third a wright

  4. the four is a servant man

3 Line. Alexander Stewart at Crochavie, Aberfoil parish, under the Lordship of Monteith, now belonging to the Duke of Montrose.  Alexander has one son:

  1. Charles.

There was one Duncan Stewart Brother to....

The reference to "Doal Ban Mor" is problematic.  It can be interpreted two ways: either as a transliteration of "Domhnall", the Gaelic form of Donald, which is pronounced similar to "Doh-al"; or it could be a transcription error for "John Ban Mor".  This makes it unclear if Walter is a cousin of the previously mentioned John Ban Mor in Auchnahard, or if there was an additional Donald Ban Mor.  As we have no other evidence of a Donald Stewart in Auchnahard at the time nor did Walter Stewart in Dunan have any descendants named Donald, then the simpler option is preferred -- that Doal Ban Mor is a transcription error for John Ban Mor.

The Comrie OPR reveals that Walter resided at Dunan (also spelled "Dounan" in the OPR, "Downen" on an early map (at right), and "An Dunan" on modern maps). Dunan (prounced "doo-nan" or "down-an") means "little hill" and is located on the Ardvorlich estate above Balimeanach. The 18th century map clearly shows a residence located at Dunan, however today it is nothing more than a grassy hill on the climb up Ben Vorlich.

Stewarts of the South says that Walter had four sons, but the Comrie OPR reveals only three sons. There is a significant gap between the date of Walter's marriage and the birth of his first son.  Thus it is unclear if the missing son was born prior to Alexander in 1745 or after John in 1749.  To add further confusion, Stewarts of the South shows William as the first son; whereas the Comrie OPR shows William as the middle son.  Thus we cannot rely on onomastic evidence to help us identify Walter's father.

Walter's son, William, is easily identified.  He is found in the 1814 Blair Drummond Moss Census residing at 14 Summer's Lane with his wife Sarah Mclean and their children.  They are recorded as having resided on the Moss for 14 years and having come from "Lochearnside".

The remainder of Walter's children are more elusive.  Although we know the names of two of Walter's other sons it is not clear which of them is the "second son (who) is in Lord Down's work", since William was in fact the second born son.  Stewarts of the South then goes on to a new paragraph beginning "3 Line".  It's unclear from this reference if the "3 Line" refers to the 3rd son of Walter or the 3rd line of descendants of Bains of Glenfinglas family.  Stewarts of the South lists "Alexander Stewart at Crochavie" under 3 Line.  As Walter did have a son named Alexander then this Alexander could be the third son of Walter, or he could be a distant cousin.  3 Line concludes with the reference to "Duncan Stewart, brother to..." as shown above.  Since there appears to be text missing here then we don't know who Duncan was brother to.  Is he the fourth son of Walter (not found in the Comrie OPR)? Or is he another distantly related cousin line?

It is unclear from the original whether "3 Line" is a new descendant line altogether or if it represents the 3rd (and 4th) sons of Walter Stewart in Ardvorlich.

We account for this family as follows:

Has Children Walter STEWART , in Dunan b: ABT 1710 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland as a grandson of John Buidhe Mor Stewart, 1st in Auchnahard by an unknown father.  Walter is described in Stewarts of the South as: "There was one Walter, cousin to Doal (sic, "John") Ban Mor, tacksman in Ardvorlich, who left four sons." Comrie OPR records reveal that Walter resided at Dunan (also spelled "Dounan" in the OPR, "Downen" on an 18th century map, and "An Dunan" on modern maps). Dunan (prounced "doo-nan" or "down-an") means "little hill" and is located on the Ardvorlich estate above Balimeanach. The 18th century map clearly shows a residence located at Dunan, however today it is nothing more than a grassy hill on the climb up Ben Vorlich.  Walter married on 31 DEC 1742 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Agnes STEWART b: ABT 1720 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Her birth record has not been identified.  They had the following children:

  1. Has Children Alexander STEWART b: ABT 17 JAN 1745 in Dunan at Ardvorlich, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland.  Stewarts of the South is confusing in its accounting of this family. It would appear that this Alexander is the one described as: "Alexander Stewart at Crochavie, Aberfoil parish, under the Lordship of Monteith, now belonging to the Duke of Montrose. Alexander has one son: Charles." However this identification is not certain.
    1. Has No Children Charles STEWART b: ABT 1770 in Crochavie, Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland
  2. Has Children William STEWART b: ABT 26 APR 1747 in Dunan at Ardvorlich, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland.  William is described in Stewarts of the South as being a "schoolmaster at Summerline Flanders Moss, who has three sons". He is shown in the 1814 Blair Drummond Moss Census residing at 14 Summer's Lane (Summerline), employed as a schoolmaster, and residing with his wife and most of his children. Their place of origin is given as "Lochearnside". They had been living on the Moss for 14 years (since about 1800).  He married Sarah MCLEAN b: 1770 in Perthshire, Scotland.  They had the following children:
    1. Has No Children John STEWART b: 1792 in Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland.  John is described in Stewarts of the South as being a "merchant in Hamburgh".
    2. Has No Children Anne STEWART b: 3 AUG 1793 in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland.  Anne is not listed with her parents in the 1814 Blair Drummond Moss Census. However the census also indicated that there were "no persons deceased" in the household. Thus it is most likely that Anne was married and residing with her husband.

      A potential match has been found with: Duncan McFarlane married Agnes Stewart, 13 MAY 1811 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland. They had only one son, John McFarlan, 25/29 FEB 1812 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland. This is the only marriage for an Agnes/Anne Stewart 1806-1816 nearby to the Moss.

    3. Has No Children Walter STEWART b: ABT 10 APR 1796 in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland.  Walter is described in Stewarts of the South as being a "clark in Glasgow".
    4. Has No Children Mary STEWART b: ABT 10 APR 1796 in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland.  Mary was residing with her parents in 1814.
    5. Has No Children James STEWART b: ABT 15 JUL 1800 in Summer's Lane, Blair Drummond Moss, Kincardine by Doune, Perthshire, Scotland.  Mary was residing with her parents in 1814.
  3. Has No Children John STEWART b: ABT 7 MAY 1749 in Dunan at Ardvorlich, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland
  4. Has No Children Duncan STEWART b: ABT 1755 in Dunan at Ardvorlich, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland.  Stewarts of the South is confusing in its accounting of this family. It says: "There was one Duncan Stewart Brother to.... " and the entry stops at this point. It would appear that the original text is unreadable or missing. It is not clear who Duncan is a brother to. He may be the fourth son of Walter Stewart in Dunan. No birth record has been found for him.

The following births are also found in Dunan and may be related to the above family:

John STEWART and Janet DEWAR in Dunan of Ardvorlich

  1. Duncan STEWART, bap 24 SEP 1693 in Domnan (Dunan) of Ardvorlich, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland

Robert STEWART and Janet STEWART in Dunan

  1. Christian STEWART, bap 23 JUN 1717 in Dunine
  2. Katharine STEWART, bap 19 APR 1719 in Dunine

3 line - Alexander Stewart in Coirchavie


Coirchavie (now extinct)
www.multimap.com


Crahavie (Coirchavie)
www.nls.uk

The next line of descendants of the Bains of Glenfinglas is described in Stewarts of the South as:

Alexander Stewart at Crochavie, Aberfoil parish, under the Lordship of Monteith, now belonging to the Duke of Montrose.  Alexander has one son:

  1. Charles.

There was one Duncan Stewart Brother to....

The accounting of the original is extremely confusing here.  This line can be interpreted in two ways.  This Alexander could be the third son of Walter Stewart in Dunan, shown above.  Or this Alexander may represent a new descendant line independently descended from Ian Buighe Mor Stewart, 1st in Auchnahard. 

Similarly with the closing reference to Duncan Stewart.  He could be the missing fourth son of Walter Stewart in Dunan, or he too could be independently descended.  The text is missing so we are robbed of knowing who Duncan was brother to, which could have helped us in setting these lines in their proper context.

The only Charles Stewart, son of Alexander Stewart, that we can find in the OPRs about the right time is the following family.  It is clear by the multiple marriages and same-named births that we are looking at several families convoluted here.  Until we are able to examine the OPR entries for each we will not be able to sort out these families.  For now we leave this as a research lead in progress.

Alexander Stuart and Janet Stuart, m 20 MAY 1765 in Callander, 28 FEB/12 MAR 1767 in Balq/Callander, 7/8 APR 1771 in Balq/Callander, or 2 JAN 1787 in Callander

  2. John Stewart 19 AUG 1773 in Port of Menteith
  3. Alexander Stuart, 25 AUG 1775 in Port of Menteith
  4. Alexander Stuart, 25 AUG 1778 in Port of Menteith
  5. James Stewart, 10 JUN 1781 in Port of Menteith
  6. Walter Stewart, bap 20 JUL 1784 in Port of Menteith
  7. Charles Dugald Stuart, bap 21 FEB 1790 in Port of Menteith
  8. Jannet Stewart, 25/28 DEC 1794 in Callander
  9. Mary Stewart 16/17 MAY 1800 in Callander

4 line - Walter Stewart in Tighbhavid

The next line of descendants of the Bains of Glenfinglas is described in Stewarts of the South as follows:

Walter Stewart, tacksman of Toighbhavid, Callander parish, Sir Patrick Murray's property -- a new purchase.  Walter left one son:

  1. Alexander Stewart, late farmer at Auchlow (Auchtow), Balquhidder, on Sir John Murray's estate.  He is now at Callander with
    1. four sons who are minors.

According to Stewarts of the South, Tighbhavid is located in Callander parish however we have been unable to locate it.

There are two families found in the Callander OPR who are both very close matches for this description.  Each family has a second son named Alexander, so we must presume that if either of these are correct then the eldest son died young.  One family is in Auchnahard which as the Bains' family property and the other family was in Duart which was just across from Auchnahard and is where John Ban Mor formerly lived.  The two Alexanders were born only 3 years apart making both candidates chronologically equal also, and both capable of having for underage sons in 1815.  So each of these is equally plausible and we have no means by which to prefer one family over the other. 

Walter STEWART and Mary MCFARLANE in Auchnahard, m 21 MAR 1726 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.

  1. Jannet STEWART b/b 12/15 unknown month 1727 in Achnahard, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.

  2. Margaret STEWART, b/b 1/6 MAY 1729 in Achnahard, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.

  5. Hugh STEWART, b/b 9/12 AUG 1746 in Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.

  6. Alexander STEWART, b/b 1/3 FEB 1748 in Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.

  7. Janet STEWART, b/b 23/25 APR 1749 in Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.

Walter STEWART and Janet STEWART in Duart (family not in database), m 18 APR 1748 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.

  1. Alexander STEWART, b/b 1 AUG 1751 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.

  2. John STEWART, b/b 8 AUG 1753 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland

  3. Margaret STEWART, b/b 2/4 DEC 1755 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander Perthshire, Scotland.

  4. Catharine STEWART, b/b 17/21 APR 1758 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.

 

Mrs Stewart of Milton's account mentions: "There were two Stewart families in Grodich.  The earlier family are those who eventually went to Aberdeen.  The latter went to Strathyre  -- of this family was John who was nearly 100 when he died.  Walter Stewart (Frangich) was in Glenfinlas.  He married an Aberdeenshire woman McNab.  He was of the first Grodichs." The family of the "first Grodichs" was the family above. Note: "Frangich" is Gaelic for "French speaker".  She says later, "Walter Frangich was probably related to Walter in Edralechan as I understand he was a cousin of my mother’s.  James of this family was a clockmaker in Glasgow.

The final line of descendants of John Buidhe Mor Stewart, 1st in Auchnahard, is described in Stewarts of the South as:

John Stewart, brother to the above Walter, at Burn of Camus, Down lodge.  He left one son:

  1. John Stewart, a shoemaker who has four sons:
    1. 1st son is a mason
    2. 2nd is a slater
    3. 3rd is a wright
    4. 4th is a tailor

Again, the accounting in the original is confusing.  The reference "brother to the above Walter" could refer either to Walter Stewart in Dunan or Walter Stewart in Toighbhavid.

Cambusburn is located in Kilmadock parish.  There are no matching births in the Kilmadock OPR that fit with this family.

The following family in Cambusburn might descend from this branch:

Robert STEWART , in Buchany, b 1776 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Census and OPR records show Robert as a blacksmith (wright).  He resided in 1841 in the village of Buchany and in 1851 in Burn of Cambus, both in Kilmadock parish.  He is recorded in Mitchell's MIs as being a feuer in Buchany.  He married on 20 DEC 1822 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland to Agnes FORBES b: 1789 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  They had the following family:

  1. Has No Children James STEWART b: 5 OCT 1823 in Buchany, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  James never married and died in 1841.
  2. Has No Children Catharine STEWART b: 27 MAR 1826 in Burn of Cambus, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  She is found with her parents in Buchany in 1841 but not in 1851 and is presumed to have married between 1841-1851 to an unknown man.
  3. Has Children John STEWART b: 31 DEC 1828 in Burn of Cambus, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  John married on 21 NOV 1856 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Margaret BUCHANAN b: 1833 in Scotland.  They had the following family:
    1. Has No Children Christina STEWART b: 10 SEP 1857 in Burn of Cambus, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland
    2. Has No Children Agnes Forbes STEWART b: 12 MAR 1860 in Burn of Cambus, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland
    3. Has No Children Margaret Robina STEWART b: 26 MAY 1866 in Burn of Cambus, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland

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.
