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 Sliochd Sean Rob Mhic Alasdair Oig were a cadet branch of the Stewarts of Gartnafuaran.  Please refer to the Gartnafuaran page for a full introduction.  This family also had one cadet line who resided in Duart 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 Stewarts who resided in Glen Finglas.

Gartnafuaran IV Branch Sean Rob [mhic] Alasdair Oig

In Lower Duart and Grodich, Glen Finglas

This line is being researched by Susan Sauvé and Mairead Connor Conan.

In 1620 Glen Finglas was subdivided into eight landholdings.  The Gartnafuaran family received two of those portions.  It is believed that portions were a half-interest in each of the properties of Duart and Grodich.  The Gartnafuaran share of Glen Finglas would have been granted initially to the head of the family, who would have been Alexander Stewart, 5th of Gartnafuaran (or possibly his father).  The Glen Finglas properties, along with the other Gartnafuaran properties would have been distributed amongst Alexander's sons.  From evidence explained below, it would appear that the Glen Finglas properties were given to Alexander's youngest son, Alexander Dubh Oig Stewart, whose name means "Young Black Alexander".  Young Black Alexander is believed to be the patriarch of this branch of Stewarts.

Stewarts of the South accounts for this branch as follows:

"Sliochd Sheun Rob is Alastair Oig two brothers about three generations ago they came from Wester Invernenty in Balquhidder. formerly the property of the family of Gartnafuare, afterwards that of Glenbuckie & Brainchoil, and now the property of the heirs of the late Red Duncan Stewart, Minister of Balquhidder.

1 Line

The descendants of Sean Rob [are] (judging by the chronology of 2 Line, it is suggested that the following are the grandchildren of Sean Rob.)

Robert, [a] tenant in Duart [in] Glenfinglas, [who is] one of the eight tenants of the name of Stewart in that place, and [who] pays rent of one hundred guineas.  [He] left four sons:

  1. Thomas emigrated some time ago to North America and had a large family
  2. Alan in the West Indies [who is] doing well
  3. John, [who] possesses the farm which his father had.  [He is an] active [and] well-doing young man.  Unmarried.
  4. Robert, a cattle-dealer in Glenfinglas.  Unmarried

Robert Stewart, formerly [a] tenant of Auchinaird (Auchnahard) [in] Glenfinglas [and] again of Coillechat near Doune, [which is] Auchessy's property, and formerly belonged to the ancient family of Musket (Muschet).  [This Robert is a] cousin to the former Robert.  [He] left three sons:

  1. two in the West Indies
  2. "
  3. and the third [is a] schoolmaster at Bannockburn near Stirling

There was another cousin of his, a Duncan Stewart, who resided at Balfron, Stirlingshire as a cotton spinner, and who formerly lived at Bailechoalish [in] Appin [in] Argyleshire.  [He] left two sons:

  1. the one a shoemaker,
  2. the other a tailor,

    who have both families - two sons each under age who now live in Balfron.

John Stewart, late innkeeper [at] Easter Bridge of Turk [on the] Earl of Moray's property, [in] Callander parish [at the] foot of Glenfinglas.  [He was] formerly a soldier and pensioner, [and] left two sons, [namely]

  1. James (sic), [an] innkeeper [in] Callendar who has one son
  2. Alexander, [a] crofter, under McFarlane of Coillechra [in] Callendar parish and on Loch Catherineside who has also one son.

2 Line

James, [a] brother to "Sean Rob" came to Glenfinglas about three generations back (ca. 1720) and became tacksman of Grodich at Glenfinglas

  1. His grandson, Alexander Stewart, [a] tenant in Grodich, left three sons
    1. Charles, [a] tenant of Garkechnie [on] Erskine of Cardross's estate [in] Port [of Menteith] Parish, Perth county, pay £40 of rent, who has four sons,
      1. two grown up to men, the one with himself and
      2. the other in the way of service
      3. two remaining under age
      4. "
    2. James, [the] second son of Alexander, and brother to Charles.  [James was a] tacksman of Crochavie [in] Aberfoil parish [in the] Lordship of Mentieth! Duke of Montrose's property! pays £130 of rent!!! (not sure what's up with all the exclamation marks, but they are preserved from the original) who left five sons, [namely]
      1. Alexander, who died last year, one of my most familiar acquaintances on earth, and a very great favourite, a clever [and] active man and a good scholar
      2. Charles, the present tacksman of Crochavie, a person who might well pass in the Golden Age! (reference uncertain) If all men were of his disposition there would be no occasion for many of abilities either in the cabinet or in the field - the lamb might eat with the wolf [and so on]. I intend to spend the remainder of my life with him so being that he marries a woman of a similar disposition to himself.
      3. Duncan, master gardener with Mr Peel Member of Parlaiment [for] South Wales.  He also superintends the farming and is a very clever active man.  Few may be said to excel him.  He is unmarried.
      4. Robert (the subsequent reference indicates that he lives with his brother Charles)
      5. John, [who is] of a second marriage. [He and his brother Robert] live with their brother Charles.

      I have been acquainted with their father and grandfather for the period of thirty five years.

    3. Duncan, [a] brother to James Stewart, [is a] tenant of Crochavie was tacksman of Lochend [in] Perth County, [in] Port [of Menteith] Parish, [on] Erskine of Cardross' [estate].  [Duncan is] a respectable farmer [and has] three sons [who are] under age.  [He pays] £120 rent.
  2. Alexander Stewart that was in Grodich, had a brother who was [a] tenant in Auchinaird [in] Glenfinglas, who left a son called
    1. Robert, late resident in Gartmore. This Robert left four sons, [namely]
      1. one a printer in Campsie who has a family of three sons under age
      2. another a printer at Bonhill [in] Dunbartonshire who has a family of two sons
      3. another at the Shaws near Glasgow
      4. and another who is a soldier serving in Ireland and has a large family

Several problems arise in trying to interpret this entry from Stewarts of the South.  Firstly, the name of this branch does not make sense: Sliochd Sheun Rob 'is Alastair Oig.  Sliochd means "seed" or "descendants".  Sean means "old" and Oig means "young".  The Gaelic word "is" (pronounced "eesh") means exactly the same as its same-spelled English counterpart: "is".  So the full name of this clan translates literally to "Descendants of Old Rob (who) is Young Alexander."  This makes no grammatical sense.  How could Old Rob be the same person as Young Alexander?  The Gaelic word is is also used sometimes as an abbreviation of agus which means "and".  This would make the clan name "Descendants of Old Rob and Young Alexander" which makes much more grammatical sense, especially when the next words in the text are "two brothers".  We could suggest that this branch was named after two brothers: Old Rob and Young Alexander.  But such a suggestion presents us with other interpretive problems.  Firstly, we have no record of any other cadet branch being named after two people.  Secondly the text that follows further on would seem to suggest that the founding brothers in Glen Finglas were Sean Rob and his brother James (patriarchs of lines 1 & 2 above) -- not Alexander.  The absence of punctuation in the original document further compounds our interpretation.  Should the original be interpreted as:

"Sliochd Sheun Rob 'is Alastair Oig, two brothers.  About three generations ago they came from Wester Invernenty..."

or

"Sliochd Sheun Rob 'is Alastair Oig. Two brothers -- about three generations ago they came from Wester Invernenty..."

Our preference is to follow the second of these renderings and interpret the two brothers as Sean Rob and James (as noted above).  So what is the relationship between Sean Rob and Alastair Oig?

Another possibility is that is is an error for 'ic which is an abbreviation for mhic which is another form of mac and means "son of".  (Mhic is usually used in patronymics when several generations are listed.  On its own it is also used sometimes as a generic "descendant of".)  If this is the case then the clan name would mean "Old Rob, son of (or descendant of) Young Alexander."  This makes sense grammatically and is much more in keeping with customary naming.  However, we have viewed the original document and there's no question that the original hand-written text contains an 's', not a 'c'.  Thus, such error must have been committed by the original author and cannot be blamed as a transcription error.

As uncomfortable as it is to call into doubt the spelling or the Gaelic of the original author, 'ic remains the only rendering that makes sense given the rest of the entry (above) and the external evidence from old parish records and monumental inscriptions.

This brings us immediately to our next challenge: who are Old Rob and his father/ancestor, Young Alexander?  The term oig is also used in two ways.  It can be understood as "Young Alexander" or "Alexander The Younger".  The first rendering is often used two distinguish between a father and son who have the same first name -- thus, "Alexander and his son Young Alexander".  Whereas the designation "The Younger" is often used of landed families to indicate a younger son who is eligible to inherit the estate.  In our present case it would appear that both interpretations fit.

The most likely candidate for Alastair Oig is Alexander Stewart, the youngest son of Alexander Stewart, 5th of Gartnafuaran (as noted above).  This Alexander (The Younger) is identified in the Gilderoy Trial documents as "Alasdair Dubh".  Thus we have combined his two nicknames to identify him as Alasdair Dubh Oig Stewart.

Identifying Alasdair Dubh Oig Stewart, son of Alexander Stewart, 5th of Gartnafuaran, as the source of the patronymic name of this clan makes chronological sense too given that Alexander Sr. is the most likely recipient of the Gartnafuaran portion of Glen Finglas.  And when we compare the description in Stewarts of the South against OPR data then it would appear most likely that Sean Rob was his son, not a later descendant.

Mitchell's Monumental Inscriptions presents the following entries from Kilmahog Cemetery that pertain to this family:

44         Robert STEWART farmer (in) Duart (in) Glenfinglas, died 16 AUG 1818, age 85, by son John in Duart, pelican plucking its breast, rake, scythe, share and coulter, emblems of mortality.  (Mitchell notes: MacGregor notes “per Mrs Stewart in Milton, the three families (in inscriptions 44-46) Alexander STEWART who had Auchnahard and left Glenfinglas was brother of John (grandfather of STEWART of Milton,)”) [This would be Alexander who moved to Glasgow]

45         1878.  Robert STEWART 18 AUG 1818, age 85, wife Janet FISHER 27 DEC 1829, age 73, son John in Duart 31 JAN 1871, age 80, daughter Sybla 22 NOV 1836, age 40, son Robert 2 MAY 1883, age 89. (Mitchell notes: MacGregor notes that this family was not related to the other STEWARTS in Duart.)

46         1793.  pelican plucking its breast, in her nest (crest of the STEWART family).  John STEWART and Mary MCINTYRE.

And in Port of Menteith Cemetery:

44         James BUCHANAN, wife Jane STEWART, 9 MAY 1834, age 26, mother Jane SANDS died (at) Stirling 23 JAN 1860, age 83, daughter Mary 14 JUL 1843, age 13.

45         Duncan STEWART and Mary SANDS in Lochend, daughter Elizabeth 7 MAR 1826, age 15.

46         (next to 45) Duncan STEWART died (at) Lochend 1828, wife Mary SANDS died 1857, seven children.

47         (next to 46) 1834.  Charles STEWART, 2 SEP 1833, age 31.

Combining the information above with OPR data (and supplemented with IGI data where we have not yet had the opportunity to view the OPR films) we present the following accounting of the Gartnafuaran Stewarts who resided in Duart and Grodich.

This study presents only the Scottish male line descendants until the point of emigration.  Further information on female lines and North American descendants of this line can be found in Susan Sauve's report: Journal Report for Robert Stewart (1733-1818) and Three Generations of Descendants

Alexander Dubh Oig STEWART, b: ABT 1610 in Gartnafueran, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland, son of Alexander STEWART, 5th of Gartnafuaran. Alexander Stewart, is probably the Allester Dow Stewart mentioned in the 1636 Trial of Gilderoy (although the The Edward S. Gray Papers say Allester Dow was Alexander’s father, Alexander). The trial records state that Gilderoy’s party broke into and stole articles from the dwelling house of Allester Dow Stewart at “Gartnafarrow.” James Stewart of Ardvorlich served on the jury in this trial. (Memorials of Troubles in Scotland, Spalding Club, vol. I, p.437). It is suggested that Alexander Dubh MAY be the Alexander Stewart, patriarch of this branch. It seems most likely that the Gartnafuaran portion of Glenfinglas would have been given to the head of the family at that time, namely Alexander Stewart, 5th of Gartnafuaran. He would have doled out his properties amongst his sons rather than giving the Glenfinglas property to a nephew or cousin. Thus the later Duart family in Glenfinglas most likely descends from a son of Alexander Stewart, 5th of Gartnafuaran. The present arrangement seems most likely given onomastics and chronology.Alexander's identity is inferred from our interpretation of the patronymic of this clan. It is believed that he was called Alasdair Oig ("Young Alexander") to differentiate him from his father.  Alexander's spouse is unknown.  He is suggested as the father of:

  1. Has No Children "Alexander" STEWART b: ABT 1640 in Wester Invernenty, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland.  Alexander's identity is purely theoretical and is suggested only from onomastics. It is presumed he died young.
  2. Has Children Duncan STEWART , 1st in Lower Duart b: ABT 1645 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Duncan is descended from the Stewarts of Gartnafuaran by an as yet unconfirmed connection. He is suggested as possibly being the son of Alexander Dubh Oig Stewart.  Duncan is recorded in the Edward S. Gray Papers as being the father of Alexander Stewart who married Janet Stewart in Gartnafuaran.  Chronology would suggest that Duncan was older than Sean Rob (below) and that he was thus first in line to inherit Duart.  This would explain his presence in Duart as mentioned in the Edward S. Gray papers.  The fact that Duncan may have been the patriarch of a short-lived senior line in Duart, but not mentioned in Stewarts of the South, would present a reasonable explanation as to why Sean Rob and his brother James were residing in Wester Invernenty until the early 18th century and did not reside in Duart and Grodich until (likely) sometime after 1707.  To try to account for Duncan as descending from an earlier branch would require that he be a sub-tenant in Duart under Alexander Dubh Oig Stewart and would require a more convoluted arrangement and would not account for the late arrival of Sean Rob in Duart.  Duncan had one known child:
    1. Has Children Alexander STEWART , 2nd in Lower Duart b: ABT 1675 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Alexander married Janet STEWART daughter of Alexander Stewart "in Gartnafuaran" who was dead by 1707. She is believed to be his second-cousin, the daughter of Alexander Stewart, son of Andrew Stewart, 6th of Gartnafuaran.  They had the following child:
      1. Has No Children Alexander STEWART b: ABT 1700 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland. Alexander is recorded as a minor in 1707 in his father's 1708 testament. It is suggested that his line became extinct and that the property of Duart passed to his great-uncle Sean Rob Stewart.  The testament lists two tutors for Alexander, namely "Robert Stewart and James Stewart in Glenfinglas".  It is suggested that these tutors were Alexander's grand-uncles, Sean Rob and James who came about this time from Wester Invernenty to Glen Finglas, perhaps to care for Alexander and the Duart estate.
  3. Has Children Sean Robert mhic Alasdair Oig STEWART , 3rd in Lower Duart b: ABT 1650 in Wester Invernenty, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland.  Robert was the patriarch of #1 Line of this branch, shown below.
  4. Has Children James STEWART ,1st in Grodich b: ABT 1655 in Wester Invernenty, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland.  James was the patriarch of #2 Line of this branch, shown further below.
  5. Has No Children Daughter STEWART b: ABT 1660 in Wester Invernenty, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland.  She married Walter MCFARLANE b: ABT 1660 in Scotland.  Walter McFarlane is mentioned in the 1707 Testament as being another tutor to the minor Alexander Stewart, son of the late Alexander Stewart, 2nd in Duart.  As tutors were most often close relatives, then it is inferred from this that Walter was probably an uncle or grand-uncle.

1 Line - Sean Rob mhic Alasdair Oig in Lower Duart

Has Children Sean Robert mhic Alasdair Oig STEWART , 3rd in Duart b: ABT 1650 in Wester Invernenty, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland, shown above as a son of Alastair Dubh Oig Stewart in Duart and Grodich.  Robert is described in Stewarts of the South as: "Sliochd Sheun Rob 'ic Alastair Oig.  Two brothers -- about three generations ago they came from Wester Invernenty in Balquhidder, formerly the property of the family of Gartnafuare...."  Robert was known as "Sean Rob 'ic Alasdair Oig", which means "Old Rob, son of Young Alexander". This reference implies that Robert was born in Wester Invernenty in Balquhidder parish which property was held by the main branch of the Gartnafuaran Stewarts.  He is described as coming to Duart in Glen Finglas "about three generations ago" from an entry written ca. 1815.  This means he probably came to Duart somewhere around 1710-1720 which corresponds closely with the date of the death of his nephew Alexander Stewart, 2nd in Duart. It is believed that Alexander's young son either did not survive, or for some other reason did not inherit Duart.  Robert would have been next in line and it is believed that this was the cause of his coming to Glen Finglas to settle in Duart.  It is suggested that he is most likely the "Robert Stewart in Glenfinglas" who was one of the tutors to his brother's grandson, Alexander Stewart in Duart, in 1708 (see above).  The fact that Robert may have been as old as 60 or 70 at the time of his arrival in Duart may be the source of his nickname, "Sean" ("Old").

Stewarts of the South shows four lines of male descendants from Robert, three of whom are described as "cousins". Chronology would suggest that they are most likely grandsons of Sean Rob, thus Sean Rob must have had at least three surviving sons.  Robert's wife is unknown and his sons are not known for certain.  They are merely inferred from the references in Stewarts of the South.  It is suggested that Robert was the father of:

McFarlane of Coillachra

Alexander Stewart, son of John Stewart in Easter Brig o' Turk is shown at left as having been a crofter under "McFarlane of Coillechra".  This would be Hugh MCFARLANE Of Coilachra, probably born 1 SEP 1770 and baptized 4 SEP 1770 in Callander as the son of Hugh McFarlane and Mary McFarlane. Hugh married on 7 and 12 FEB 1801 in Aberfoyle and Callander to Ann STEWART, b. ABT 1770 in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland, in which they are described as "Hugh McFarlane Esq of Coillechea in this parish and Ann Stewart in the parish of Aberfoil".  They had the following family:

  1. Hugh MCFARLANE, b/b 1/8 DEC 1801 in Coillechra
  2. Kathrine Margaret MCFARLANE, b/b 19/28 DEC 1802 in Coillechra
  3. James MCFARLANE, b/b 30 DEC 1802/4 JAN 1803 in Coillechra
  4. Catharine MCFARLANE, b/b 19 DEC1805/1 JAN 1806, place not given
  5. Mary MCFARLANE, b/b 10/20 JUL 1807 "of Coilchra
  6. Donal (IGI: "Danial") MCFARLANE, b/b 17/28 DEC 1808 in Coilchra
  7. John David Stewart MCFARLANE, b/b 15/25 DEC 1810, place not given
  8. William Smith MCFARLANE, b/b 14/25 MAR 1813 "of Coilchra"

It's intriguing to note that Hugh McFarlane marred a Stewart.  Could she be related to this family and thus be the means by which Alexander Stewart became a crofter in Coillechra under McFarlane?  The answer to this question will have to be left to future research, but a promising birth family for Ann is found here:

James STEWART and Katharine STEWART

  1. Janet STEWART, bap 9 SEP 1757 in Aberfoyle
  2. John STEWART, born 6 OCT 1758 Aberfoyle
  3. David STEWART, bap 16 AUG 1761 in Aberfoyle
  4. Charles James STEWART, bap 9 DEC 1767 in Aberfoyle
  5. Charles Francis STEWART, bap 10 APR 1768 in Aberfoyle
  6. Smith STEWART, born 23 FEB 1770 in Aberfoyle
  7. Ann STEWART, 23 DEC 1772 in Aberfoyle
  8. Margaret STEWART, born 11 NOV 1774 in Aberfoyle
  1. Has No Children Alexander STEWART b: ABT 1685 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  There is no record of the existence of this Alexander Stewart. He is suggested by onomastics only. Stewarts of the South would appear to suggest that the senior surviving line of this family descends from Alexander's brother, "James" (whose name is not known with certainty), thus it is suggested that Alexander probably died young, if he existed at all. It is also possible that Alexander and "James" could be the same person.
  2. Has Children "James" STEWART , 4th in Lower Duart b: ABT 1690 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  James' exact identity is unknown. His name is suggested by onomastics, based on his son Robert's known eldest son. The chronology of Stewarts of the South would seem to imply that Robert b. 1733 in Duart was the grandson of Sean Rob, and the senior surviving male line.  Thus "James" is shown as the intervening generation, although his name could have been Alexander.  James is suggested as the father of:
    1. Has Children Robert STEWART , 5th in Duart b: 1733 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Robert was one of the eight Stewart tenants in Glenfinglas at the beginning of the 19th century.  Robert resided at Tighnamor ("The Big House") at Duart in Glenfinglas.  Robert married twice and had an enormous family.  Robert and his descendants are presented in detail further below.
  3. Has Children John STEWART b: ABT 1695 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  John's son's name is not known for sure. His existence is inferred from Stewarts of the South, which indicates that Sean Rob had four surviving grandsons: Robert Stewart 5th in Duart, Robert Stewart in Coillechat, Duncan Stewart in Balfron and John Stewart in Easter Brig o' Turk. Robert Stewart in Coillechat and Duncan Stewart in Balfron are described as cousins of Robert Stewart 5th in Duart, but their relationship to each other is not indicated.  The relationship of John Stewart in Easter Brig o' Turk is not indicated, but first cousin seems inferred.  However the relationship of Robert Stewart in Coillechat, Duncan Stewart in Balfron and John Stewart in Easter Brig o' Turk to each other is not indicated.  They could be brothers to each other, or first cousins, or any combination of the two.  In the absence of other evidence, the simplest relationship is preferred and they are presently shown as brothers, but with "John" being their common father.  The name "John" is suggested based on the onomastics of his children and grandchildren (known so far) and is a perfect onomastic match.  John may have had the following children:
    1. Has Children Robert STEWART , in Coillechat b: ABT 1720 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland. 
      1. Robert's information and descendants are presented below.
    2. Has No Children Duncan STEWART , in Balfron b: ABT 1723 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Duncan is described in Stewarts of the South as: "There was another cousin of his, a Duncan Stewart, who resided at Balfron, Stirlingshire as a cotton spinner, and who formerly lived at Bailechoalish [in] Appin [in] Argyleshire. [He] left two sons: the one a shoemaker, the other a tailor, who have both families - two sons each under age who now live in Balfron." Duncan is listed as one of four grandsons of Sean Rob: Robert, Robert, Duncan and John. The reference to "another cousin" refers to the first Robert, but does not indicate his relationship to the second Robert. Duncan could be either a cousin of both Roberts, or merely a cousin of the first Robert and a brother of the second Robert. The simpler relationship is preferred for now in the absence of other evidence.
    3. Has Children John STEWART , in Easter Brig o' Turk b: ABT 1725 in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland.  John is described in Stewarts of the South as: "John Stewart, late innkeeper [at] Easter Bridge of Turk [on the] Earl of Moray's property, [in] Callander parish [at the] foot of Glenfinglas. [He was] formerly a soldier and pensioner, [and] left two sons, [namely] James, [an] innkeeper [in] Callendar who has one son Alexander, [a] crofter, under McFarlane of Coillechra [in] Callendar parish and on Loch Catherineside who has also one son." John is shown as one of four grandsons of Sean Rob, but his relationship to the other grandsons is not indicated. He could be a brother or cousin of some of them, or an illegitimate brother of any of them. The simplest relationship is shown for now in the absence of evidence.

      John's marriage is incorrectly recorded in the IGI. The marriage as shown here is from Malcolm Gray's transcriptions. John is recorded as "in Aberfoyle parish" and Mary as "in this parish" (Callander).  The marriage and children shown here are not confirmed.  Whether John's suggested wife, Mary McFarlane was related to Hugh McFarlane of Coillachra has not been determined.  (See side note above for information on McFarlane of Coillachra.)

      If we have correctly accounted for this branch then John's eldest son's name is incorrectly recorded in Stewarts of the South as "James" instead of "John".

      John is believed to have married on 14 AND 30 APR 1750 in Aberfoyle and Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Mary MCFARLANE b: ABT 1725 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  John Stewart and Mary McFarlane had the following children:

      1. Has No Children John STEWART b: ABT 19 OCT 1748 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  Stewarts of the South records the name of the eldest son of John Stewart in Easter Brig of Turk as "James" where as the Callander OPR shows his eldest son as "John". If this branch is correctly accounted then it would seem most likely that Stewarts of the South got John's name incorrectly. Either that or there was another son James whose birth is not recorded and this son, John, died young and is not recorded in Stewarts of the South. Or this family has been incorrectly accounted.

        Thus it is presently suggested that this John Stewart is incorrectly accounted in Stewarts of the South as "James (sic), [an] innkeeper [in] Callendar who has one son".

      2. Has No Children Margaret STEWART b: 23 APR 1759 in Easter Brig of Turk, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.
      3. Has No Children Mary STEWART b: ABT 17 APR 1761 in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland
      4. Has No Children Elizabeth STEWART b: ABT 27 MAR 1763 in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland
      5. Has Children Alexander STEWART b: 16 FEB 1767 in Ardkinknockan, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Alexander is described in Stewarts of the South as "Alexander, [a] crofter, under McFarlane of Coillechra [in] Callendar parish and on Loch Catherineside who has also one son."  Alexander is suggested by Malcom Gray to have married to Catharine MCNAUGHTON although no record of their marriage has been found.  Catharine was born ABT 23 DEC 1778 in Kilmadock, Perthshire. Scotland as the daughter of Duncan McNaughton and Mary McKinlay.  They had the following children, most of which are not found in OPRs and are believed to have come from The Buchanan Family Tree:
        1. Has No Children Jean STEWART b: 1799 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Jean married on 4 AND 24 NOV 1820 in Alva, Stirling and Alloa, Perthshire, Scotland to John DRYSDALE b: ABT 1795 in Scotland.
        2. Has No Children John STEWART b: 21/24 APR 1803 in Downacraig, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
        3. Has No Children William STEWART b: ABT 1807 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
        4. Has No Children Duncan STEWART b: ABT 1810 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
        5. Has No Children Mary STEWART b: ABT 30 JUL 1811 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  (Mary is not found in the Callander OPR, but there is another Mary Stewart baptized on the same day, so it's possible that the original researcher has confused the two.)  Malcolm Gray shows Mary as d. 5 AUG 1891 in Lorechan House, but he has confused her with another Mary Stewart also born 1811 who married Robert Stewart of Drunkie.  Mary married Robert MCGREGOR b: ABT 1800 in Scotland.
        6. Has No Children Alexander STEWART b: ABT 1813 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
        7. Has No Children Jean STEWART, b ABT 1815 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
        8. Has No Children Janet STEWART b: ABT 1817 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
        9. Has No Children Catherine STEWART b: ABT 1819 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Catherine married on 21 JAN 1842 in Denny, Stirling, Scotland to Thomas LECKIE b: 1818 in Denny, Stirling, Scotland. 
          1. Their descendants are presented in Malcolm Gray's notes.
        10. Has No Children Elizabeth STEWART b: ABT 1827 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Malcolm Gray's notes show this Elizabeth as having married Peter Stewart in Cuilantogle, son of Duncan Stewart and Mary McKinlay. However that Elizabeth is shown in The Ardvorlich History as being the daughter of Robert Ban Stewart in Auchnahard. Malcolm has confused the two Elizabeths.

Robert Stewart, 5th in Tynamore, Lower Duart

Has Children Robert STEWART, 5th in Lower Duart b: 1733 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland, shown above as the son of "James" Stewart, 4th in Duart.  Robert was one of the eight Stewart tenants in Glenfinglas at the beginning of the 19th century. Stewarts of the South and the Callander OPR give his residence as Duart (often spelled "Dowart" in old records).  However private family records give the residence as "Tynamore" which is an Anglicized spelling of the Gaelic Tighnamor, which simply means "big house". It therefore seems most likely that this family of Stewarts lived in "the big house" at Duart, as opposed to the Invernahyle Stewarts who resided in Upper Duart and who presumably lived in a smaller house. The reference to the "Big House" would further suggest that this Robert was the senior tenant of Duart. Robert had an almost incomprehensibly large family.

Mrs. Stewart of Milton's account says: "In Lower Duart, the old man, I don’t know his name, was three times married, and had about twenty of a family. The only ones I recollect of were John and Robert both of whom were batchelors. Some probably went to America for Charles a nephew of theirs came from American and stayed with them. The rest of the family except John and Robert had left before I knew them." This is the only indication of any distinction between Lower Duart and Upper Duart.

Robert is described in Stewarts of the South as follows:

Robert, [a] tenant in Duart [in] Glenfinglas, [who is] one of the eight tenants of the name of Stewart in that place, and [who] pays rent of one hundred guineas. [He] left four sons:
1. Thomas (sic) emigrated some time ago to North America and had a large family
2. Alan in the West Indies [who is] doing well
3. John, [who] possesses the farm which his father had. [He is an] active [and] well-doing young man. Unmarried.
4. Robert, a cattle-dealer in Glenfinglas. Unmarried

Stewarts of the South records Robert's eldest (surviving) son as "Thomas", however this is an error for Charles. It seems likely that "Chas" has been misread as "Thos" in the transcription.

Mitchell's Monumental Inscriptions records Robert and his family in Kilmahog Cemetery:

44 Robert STEWART farmer (in) Duart (in) Glenfinglas, died 16 AUG 1818, age 85, by son John in Duart, pelican plucking its breast, rake, scythe, share and coulter, emblems of mortality. (Mitchell notes: MacGregor notes “per Mrs Stewart in Milton, the three families (in inscriptions 44-46) Alexander STEWART who had Auchnahard and left Glenfinglas was brother of John (grandfather of STEWART of Milton,)”) [This would be Alexander who moved to Glasgow]
45 1878. Robert STEWART 18 AUG 1818, age 85, wife Janet FISHER 27 DEC 1829, age 73, son John in Duart 31 JAN 1871, age 80, daughter Sybla 22 NOV 1836, age 40, son Robert 2 MAY 1883, age 89. (Mitchell notes: MacGregor notes that this family was not related to the other STEWARTS in Duart.)
46 1793. pelican plucking its breast, in her nest (crest of the STEWART family). John STEWART and Mary MCINTYRE.

The chronology in Stewarts of the South would seem to indicate that this Robert was the eldest grandson of "Sean Rob" from whom this branch derives its patronymic.  Robert married firstly on 1 FEB 1759 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland to Isabella DOW b: ABT 1735 in Perthshire, Scotland.  Isabella's birth family has not been identified.  Her surname is probably an Anglicization of the Gaelic name "Dubh" which means "black" and is pronounced as "doo", "doof", or "doov". It can be Anglicized as "Dow", "Duff", "Dove", and other variants.  Robert and Isabella had the following huge family:

  1. Has No Children Jean STEWART b: 29 NOV 1759 in Dowart, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland. Jean presumably died young prior to the birth of her same-named sister in 1761.
  2. Has Children Margaret STEWART b: 20 JUL 1760 in Tynamore, Dowart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Margaret's birth information comes from family records. She is not found in the Callander OPR. Two of Margaret's children, William and Elizabeth, are referenced in her brother's will, however no birth records for such children can be found. There is a contemporary match for a family with the same names in Comrie parish whose children are shown here. It is not confirmed that the Comrie births are the same family.  Margaret is suspected, but not confirmed, to have married on 11 MAR 1780 in Edinburgh parish, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland to Thomas MCNIVEN b: BET 17 AND 24 NOV 1745 in Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland.  They are suspected, but not confirmed, to have had the following children:
    1. Has No Children Robert MCNIVEN b: ABT 23 MAY 1781 in Comrie Village, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland.  It is not certain that Robert belongs to these parents, but there is only one family with matching parents in the IGI and that family matches chronologically and onomastically.
    2. Has No Children Malcolm MCNIVEN b: 25 MAR 1783 in Comrie Village, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland.  It is not certain that Malcolm belongs to these parents, but there is only one family with matching parents in the IGI and that family matches chronologically and onomastically. Malcolm presumably died young prior to the birth of his same-named brother in 1785.
    3. Has No Children Malcolm MCNIVEN b: ABT 7 APR 1785 in Comrie Village, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland.  It is not certain that Malcolm belongs to these parents, but there is only one family with matching parents in the IGI and that family matches chronologically and onomastically.
    4. Has No Children Ann MCNIVEN b: ABT 20 MAR 1787 in Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland.  It is not certain that Ann belongs to these parents, but there is only one family with matching parents in the IGI and that family matches chronologically and onomastically.
    5. Has No Children William MCNIVEN b: AFT 1787 in Scotland.  No birth record has been found for William, but he is mentioned in his uncle's 1867 will.
    6. Has No Children Elizabeth MCNIVEN b: ABT 1800 in Scotland.  No birth record has been found for Elizabeth, but she is mentioned in her uncle's 1867 will. She has not been found in census records to confirm her age.
  3. Has No Children Jean STEWART b: 15 DEC 1761 in Tynamore, Dowart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Family records give Jean's birth as 2 DEC 1761 where as the Callander OPR records her birth as 29 NOV 1761.
  4. Has No Children Elizabeth STEWART b: 9 JUN 1763 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Elizabeth's birth is not found in the Callander OPR but is recorded in family records. She is presumed to have died young prior to the birth of her same-named sister in 1770.
  5. Has No Children Janet STEWART b: 17 JAN 1765 in "near Cardross", Dunbarton, Scotland.  Janet is recorded in family records as having been born "near Cardross". This is a strange reference as Cardross is nowhere near Glenfinglas. No record of her birth has been found in the Callander OPR.
  6. Has No Children Isabella STEWART b: 10 JAN 1767 in Tynamore, Dowart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Isabella may have died young prior to the birth of her same-named sister Siblah (an abbreviation of Isabella), or the family may have treated the names separately.
  7. Has No Children James STEWART b: 5 SEP 1768 in Dowart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  James is not mentioned in Stewarts of the South and has not been found in any later records.  It is suspected that he died young.
  8. Has No Children Elizabeth STEWART b: 31 MAR 1770 in Doune, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland. Elizabeth's birth is according to family records; she has not been found in the Callander OPR.
  9. Has No Children Agnes STEWART b: 7 MAY 1772 in The Offrans, Loch Venacher, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Agnes' birth is according to family records. No record of her birth has been found in the Callander OPR.
  10. Has Children Kathrine STEWART b: 23 NOV 1773 in Tynamore, Duart, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Kathrine is presumed to have married Thomas BISSLAND b: ABT 1775 in Scotland, although no record of their marriage has been found.  They had the following children:
    1. Has No Children Robert BISSLAND b: 1806 in Drymen, Stirling, Scotland
    2. Has No Children Son BISSLAND b: ABT 1805 in Scotland
    Archibald MCLAREN and Jean STEWART, m 5 JUN 1795 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland (both in Callander parish).  They are believed to be the parents of Archibald McLaren who married Margaret Campbell at left.  Jean Stewart is believed (but not confirmed) to be b: 26 MAY 1769 in Wester Brakland, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland as the daughter of Walter Stewart in Wester Brackland and Christian McArthur.

  11. Has Children Mary STEWART b: 1 AUG 1775 in Tynamore, Duart, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Mary is presumed to have married Peter CAMPBELL b: ABT 1775 in Scotland, although no record of their marriage has been found.  Peter Campbell was a shoemaker.  They were residing in 1851 at Duncreggan, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland, with Mary residing there as a widow in 1861.  Mary died 28 MAY 1861 at Bridge of Turk, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Her death certificate shows her as the daughter of "Robert Stewart, farmer, and Isabella nee Dow."  This family is being discussed here: http://www.hostmybb.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=401&mforum=stewart .They had the following children:
    1. Has No Children Helen CAMPBELL b: 10 MAR 1790 in Ardcheanochdan, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland

  12. Has No Children Christian STEWART b: 1 MAY 1777 in Tynamore, Duart, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Christian's birth is found in family records only. She has not been found in the Callander OPR.
  13. Has Children Charles STEWART b: 13 MAY 1779 in Dowart, Glenfinglas, Callander Perthshire, Scotland.  Charles was mistakenly recorded in Stewarts of the South as Thomas (probably a transcription error for "Chas./Thos."), in which it says "Thomas emigrated some time ago to North America and had a large family."  His wife is unknown and only one child has been identified so far, but research on this line is ongoing.  Charles is believed to be the father of:
    1. Has Children Robert STEWART b: 12 AUG 1805 in New York, USA.  Robert's exact parents are not known for certain. Robert's son, Charles, is recorded in census records, wills and other family records as being the grand-nephew of John and Robert Stewart in Duart (below). However, it is not know by which father Robert is connected. Robert is suggested to be a son of Charles based on onomastics as well as the fact that Charles is believed to be the one recorded in Stewarts of the South as having "emigrated some time ago to North America and had a large family."  Robert married Margaret Moriah ROSE b: 1814 in Broadalbin, Montgomery, New York, USA.  They had the following children:
      1. Has No Children Charles STEWART b: 24 APR 1836 in Mumford, Monroe County, New York, USA.  Charles moved to Duart, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland between 1851-1861 for 27 years to assist with the running of the family's ancestral farm at Duart and to care for his three aged bachelor great-uncles. (Only two of these great-uncles have been identified: John and Robert Stewart. The third must be the husband of one of the daughters of Robert Stewart in Duart.) Charles is found residing with his great-uncle Robert Stewart in Duart in 1881.
      2. Has No Children Hellen STEWART b: 5 SEP 1837 in New York, USA
      3. Has No Children Jane STEWART b: 13 AUG 1840 in New York, USA

      9. Has No Children Margaret E. STEWART b: 9 MAY 1859 in New York, USA
  14. Has No Children Siblah STEWART b: 10 NOV 1780 in Dowart, Glenfinglas, Callander Perthshire, Scotland.  Siblah is presumed to have died prior to the birth of her same-named half-sister in 1796. According to OPR records Siblas was born in Duart. According to family records she was born in Lenny.
  15. Has No Children Helen STEWART b: 5 JUL 1782 in Brig of Turk, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Siblah is presumed to have died prior to the birth of her same-named half-sister in 1796. According to OPR records Siblas was born in Duart. According to family records she was born in Lenny.
  16. Has Children Janet STEWART b: 12 JUL 1784 in Dowart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Janet's birth is given in family records as 16 JUL 1784 in Duart. It is believed that Janet married firstly to Neil BRUCE (no record) in Drymen, Stirling, Scotland and had one son, John Bruce, who is referenced in Janet's brother's John's 1867 will as a "nephew living in Glasgow." Family records confirm that Janet married (presumably secondly) to William Campbell. It is also possible that her first son, John Bruce, was illegitimate -- as the OPR has not been consulted. Janet resided at "The Park" in Drymen, Stirling with her second husband and children.  Janet married or had relations firstly with Neil BRUCE b: ABT 1780 in Scotland.  They had the following child:
    1. Has No Children John BRUCE b: 22 APR 1809 in Drymen, Stirling, Scotland

    Janet Stewart married on 13 AUG 1819 in Drymen, Stirling, Scotland to William CAMPBELL b: ABT 1780 in Scotland.  They had the following family:

    1. Has No Children Isabella CAMPBELL b: 23 OCT 1821 in Drymen, Stirling, Scotland.  She married George HUME and had descendants.
    2. Has No Children Robert CAMPBELL b: 27 JUN 1824 in Drymen, Stirling, Scotland

Apparently sixteen children wasn't enough for Robert (albeit not all of them survived).  Robert married secondly on 29 DEC 1789 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Janet FISHER b: 1756 in Scotland.  Janet's birth family has not been identified.  Robert and Janet had the following children:

  1. Has No Children John STEWART , 6th in Duart b: 20 MAR 1791 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  John and his brother Robert continued on the Duart farm after their father died. John is described in Stewarts of the South as "an unexceptional character and a well-informed scholar of a tenant." In 1851 he is shown in Duart as a farmer and a grazier. John left a detailed will from which much family information has been gained. His will is available from our Fellow Researcher, Susan Sauvé.
  2. Has No Children Robert STEWART , in Duart b: ABT 7 JUL 1794 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Family records indicate that Robert was baptized on the date shown here although no record of that baptism has been found in the Callander OPR and no record of his birth or actual birth date has been found. Robert never married. Robert and his brother John continued on the Duart farm after the death of their father. Robert's brother, John, died in 1871 and it appears that Robert inherited John's portion of Duart, as in 1881 he is shown as a farmer of 2200 acres (an enormous farm!). His grandnephew, Charles Stewart, was shown residing with him. Robert left the following will:

    Testament of Robert Stewart, d. 3 May 1883 at Duart.  Charles Stewart, his grandnephew who was residing with him at the time the will was written, was to be Robert’s executor and sole heir with certain exceptions: Robert Campbell, nephew, also residing with him at Duart: L 420; Isabella Campbell or Home, niece, sometime residing at Woodend Lodge, Buchanan, now in Glasgow, sister of said Robert Campbell: L 140; Robert Campbell, nephew, shoemaker, Bridge of Turk: L 150; John Bruce, nephew, now or lately at 102 Hospital Street, Hutchestown (?), Glasgow: L 150; James Stewart, son of my nephew the late Robert Stewart and residing at Kippen, Cardross, Moss: L 35; Janet Campbell, niece, residing at Bridge of Turk: L 19, 19 shillings. This was written 13 Dec 1879. Witnesses: James Stewart, farmer, Duart, Glenfinglass; William McMichael

    Later codicils provided for changes and re-distributions of inheritances:

    Signed 4 Dec 1880, he provided that the legacy to John Bruce be revoked stating that he had given it to him before he left for America; reduced the amount to go to Robert Campbell, shoemaker; increased the amount to the Robert Campbell who resided with him; and increased the amount to Isabella Campbell.

    Signed 2 Feb 1882, he noted that both his niece, Janet Campbell, who had resided at Bridge of Turk and his nephew, Robert Campbell, shoemaker, had died and their legacies were now lapsed. He increased the inheritances for his nephew, Robert Campbell at Duart, and his niece Isabella Campbell or Hume who was also residing with him at Duart and who he noted as Robert’s sister.

    Signed 4 Jan 1883, he increased the amounts he would designate for Robert and Isabella Campbell.

    The inventory of his estate showed that he owed the Earl of Moray ½ years rent at the time of his death. Charles Stewart was listed as the manager of his farm. James Stewart as the shepherd, and John McMartin as a shepherd. Charles Stewart, farmer, Duart, signed a disposition that Robert Stewart had had no children. Net estate after debts were paid was L 2,600.

    Registered at Dunblane, 8 Jun 1883, Inventories of the Commissariot of the Western District of Perthshire, pages 319-345.

  3. Has No Children Sybla STEWART b: ABT 2 JAN 1796 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland. Sybla never married.

Has Children James STEWART ,1st in Grodich b: ABT 1655 in Wester Invernenty, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland, shown above as the son of Alexander Dubh Oig Stewart in Duart and Grodich.  James is recorded in Stewarts of the South as "James, [a] brother to "Sean Rob" came to Glenfinglas about three generations back (ca. 1720) and became tacksman of Grodich at Glenfinglas". James is also believed to be the "James Stewart in Glenfinglas" who was one of the tutors to his brother's grandson, Alexander Stewart in Duart, in 1708 (see above).  James' wife is unknown.  James is believed to be the father of:

  1. Has No Children Alexander STEWART b: ABT 1680 in Grodich, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland. No documentary evidence has been found to show any son named Alexander. He is suggested for onomastics only. If he existed at all then he likely died young.
  2. Has Children John? STEWART , 2nd in Grodich b: ABT 1685 in Grodich, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  John's actual first name is not known for sure. What is known is that he had a son, Alexander, who was the grandson of James Stewart, 1st in Grodich. 
    1. His descendants are presented further below.
  3. Has Children James STEWART b: ABT 1690 in Grodich, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  James is mentioned in Stewarts of the South but his name is not given: "Alexander Stewart that was in Grodich, had a brother who was [a] tenant in Auchinaird [in] Glenfinglas, who left a son called Robert, late resident in Gartmore." However the chronology of this entry is nearly impossible to reconcile. The earliest reasonable birth for his son, Robert Stewart in Gartmore, would be ca. 1745. The earliest reasonable date for Robert's first son would be ca. 1770. Stewarts of the South claims that three of Robert's four sons all had children of their own, some of whom appear to have been adult age ca. 1815. It would be very difficult for Robert to be a grandfather multiple times over -- and this is using the earliest reasonable chronology. Thus it must be considered that Stewarts of the South may be in error here.

    There are two reasonable candidates in the Port of Menteith OPR (where Gartmore is located) for Robert Stewart in Gartmore. Both of them have an eldest son named James. These two Roberts were married in 1757 and 1773, making their births likely in the range of 1710-1750. In searching the Callander OPR for a Robert Stewart, son of James Stewart, born in Auchnahard within that range we find there is indeed one such entry: Robert Stewart, son of James Stewart in Auchnahard, born and baptized on 30 SEP 1724 (there is no mother's name given in the entry). This entry almost certainly must be the birth of Robert Stewart in Gartmore. If so, then the chronology shown in Stewarts of the South cannot be correct.

    Stewarts of the South claims that James Stewart, tenant in Auchnahard, was the brother of Alexander Stewart in Grodich. What seems chronologically more likely is that James was the brother of Alexander's father as we presently show here.  James had one son:

    1. Has Children Robert STEWART , in Gartmore* b: 30 SEP 1724 in Auchnahard, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Robert is described in Stewarts of the South as the only son of his father who resided in Auchnahard in Glenfinglas, and describes Robert as: "Robert, late resident in Gartmore. This Robert left four sons: one a printer in Campsie who has a family of three sons under age, another a printer at Bonhill [in] Dunbartonshire who has a family of two sons, another at the Shaws near Glasgow, and another who is a soldier serving in Ireland and has a large family."

      There was another Robert Stewart recorded in Stewarts of the South as residing in Gartmore with four sons at the same time as this one. The other Robert Stewart was from the Edraleachdach family (Glenbuckie). Future careful research will be required to correctly distinguish between these two families.

      Robert had the following children:

      1. Has No Children Son STEWART b: ABT 1755 in Gartmore, Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  He is described in Stewarts of the South as: "a printer in Campsie who has a family of three sons under age", but his name is not given.
      2. Has No Children Son STEWART b: ABT 1757 in Gartmore, Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland. He is described in Stewarts of the South as "a printer at Bonhill [in] Dunbartonshire who has a family of two sons" but his name is not given.
      3. Has No Children Son STEWART b: ABT 1760 in Gartmore, Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland. He is described in Stewarts of the South as residing "at the Shaws near Glasgow", but his name is not given.
      4. Has No Children Son STEWART b: ABT 1763 in Gartmore, Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland. He is described in Stewarts of the South as "a soldier serving in Ireland and has a large family", but his name is not given.

*NOTE - There was another Robert Stewart in Gartmore at the same time as this one and who also had four sons.

John Stewart, 2nd in Grodich

Has Children John? STEWART , 2nd in Grodich b: ABT 1685 in Grodich, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  John's actual first name is not known for sure. What is known is that he had a son, Alexander, who was the grandson of James Stewart, 1st in Grodich.  He had the following children:

  1. Has Children Alexander STEWART , 3rd in Grodich b: BET 1712 AND 1719 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Two possible births have been identified for this Alexander ranging from 1712-1719 all with John as a father, but none with Robert as a father. The first son shown below could be from a different family -- it's hard to tell. It's also possible that Alexander was "out" in The '45 which would explain the seven year gap between the first and second children. That no marriage record can be found hampers our ability to determine if John Stewart 1743 belongs to this family or another.

    Possible births:
    Alexander STEWART, b/b 26/31 DEC 1716 in Ardcheanochdan, s/o John STEWART and Janet STEWART.  This one looks very promising, especially given that his first son was born in Ardcheanochdan, and it appears that this Alexander does not belong to the Ardcheanochdan family above.
    Alexander STEWART, b/b 13/16 FEB 1719 in Milntown of Strathgartney, s/o John STEWART and Jean BUCHANAN

    Alexander is presumed to have married Elizabeth STEWART b: ABT 1720 in Scotland, although no record of their marriage has been found.  They had the following children:

    1. Alexander and Elizabeth Stewart's descendants are presented further below.
  2. Has No Children Son STEWART , in Auchnahard b: ABT 1720 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  This son is mentioned in Stewarts of the South but his name is not given: "Alexander Stewart that was in Grodich, had a brother who was [a] tenant in Auchinaird [in] Glenfinglas, who left a son called Robert, late resident in Gartmore." However the chronology of this entry is nearly impossible to reconcile. The earliest reasonable birth for his son, Robert Stewart in Gartmore, would be ca. 1745. The earliest reasonable date for Robert's first son would be ca. 1770. Stewarts of the South claims that three of Robert's four sons all had children of their own, some of whom appear to have been adult age ca. 1815. It would be very difficult for Robert to be a grandfather multiple times over -- and this is using the earliest reasonable chronology. Thus it must be considered that Stewarts of the South may be in error here.

    There are two reasonable candidates in the Port of Menteith OPR (where Gartmore is located) for Robert Stewart in Gartmore. Both of them have an eldest son named James. These two Roberts were married in 1757 and 1773, making their births likely in the range of 1710-1750. In searching the Callander OPR for a Robert Stewart, son of James Stewart, born in Auchnahard within that range we find there is indeed one such entry: Robert Stewart, son of James Stewart in Auchnahard, born and baptized on 30 SEP 1724. This entry almost certainly must be the birth of Robert Stewart in Gartmore. If so, then the chronology shown in Stewarts of the South cannot be correct.

    Stewarts of the South claims that James Stewart, tenant in Auchnahard, was the brother of Alexander Stewart in Grodich. What seems chronologically more likely is that James was the brother of Alexander's father. (As shown above.)

    Mrs Stewart of Milton says

    Of the Grodich Stewarts who left Grodich and came to Auchnahard, there were three of the name of John in succession – grandfather, father and son.  That family eventually went to Aberdeen and became wine merchants there.

    Alexander Stewart in Auchnahard had at least three sons:

    1. 1.       James who married Cath. Stewart from Edinburgh – he was in the Braes of Balquhidder

    2. 2.       John who was in the Braes 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.

    3. 3.       Charles

     

From Stewarts of Auchnahard:

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 Glengfinglas was brother (-in-law?*) 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.  However, this entry is noted in connection with Robert STEWART in Duart 1733-1818 of Gartnafuaran Branch IV.  No other evidence has been found to show the existence of Alexander.  Onomastics would suggest that he'd likely be a younger brother of John Ban Mor.  The timing of his departure from Glen Finglas would strongly suggest that he was a Jacobite who fled after The '45.  It's also likely that he was not married before leaving.  If he had any descendants they would be extremely hard to trace.

Alexander STEWART and Bettrice STEWART in Auchnahard, m 14 DEC 1742 or 18 MAY 1747 in Callander (both entries say "both in this parish")

  1. Robert STEWART, b/b 20 JAN 1 FEB 1750 in Groiddoch (mother Elisabeth)
  2. John STEWART, b/b 20/20 NOV 1751 in Groiddoch (mother Elisabeth Stewart)
  3. James STEWART, b/b 30/30 MAR 1752* in Groiddoch (year uncertain) (mother ditto)
  4. Has No Children Janet STEWART b: 8 SEP 1754 in Achnahard, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland

*Old Scots custom did not distinguish between "brother" and "brother-in-law".  The term "brother" was was used for both.  If "full brother" was intended then the term "brother german" was used.  When the term "brother" was used it could refer to full brother, half-brother, or brother-in-law.

I now suspect that Beatrix Stewart was the daughter of John Ban Mor and she married Alexander Stewart who may have been "in Bochastle" and of the Edraleachdach Family (Glenbuckie Branch V) or 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.

 

Alexander Stewart, 3rd in Grodich

This family is being discussed here: http://www.hostmybb.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?p=1648&mforum=stewart#1648

Has Children Alexander STEWART , 3rd in Grodich b: BET 1712 AND 1719 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Two possible births have been identified for this Alexander ranging from 1712-1719 all with John as a father, but none with Robert as a father. The first son shown below could be from a different family -- it's hard to tell. It's also possible that Alexander was "out" in The '45 which would explain the seven year gap between the first and second children. That no marriage record can be found hampers our ability to determine if John Stewart 1743 belongs to this family or another.

Possible births:
Alexander STEWART, b/b 26/31 DEC 1716 in Ardcheanochdan, s/o John STEWART and Janet STEWART.  This one looks very promising, especially given that his first son was born in Ardcheanochdan, and it appears that this Alexander does not belong to the Ardcheanochdan family above.
Alexander STEWART, b/b 13/16 FEB 1719 in Milntown of Strathgartney, s/o John STEWART and Jean BUCHANAN

Alexander is presumed to have married Elizabeth STEWART b: ABT 1720 in Scotland, although no record of their marriage has been found (actually at least three marriages have been found).  Her birth family has not been identified.  They had the following children:

  1. Has No Children John STEWART b: 8 SEP 1743 in Ardkenknockan, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  It is not certain that John belongs to this family. No marriage record has been found for Alexander and Elizabeth Stewart, so it is difficult to know if there were two couples with the same name; one in Ardcheanochdan and the other in Grodich, or if they are the same people. This is complicated by the fact that there is such a large gap between the birth of John in 1743 and the next son, Robert, in 1750. However the Jacobite Rising of 1745 could also explain this gap if Alexander was out in The '45. If John is correctly accounted then he is not mentioned in Stewarts of the South and is presumed to have died young.
  2. Has No Children Robert STEWART b: 20 JAN 1750 in Groiddoch, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Robert is presumed to have died young prior to the birth of his same-named brother in 1756.
  3. Has No Children John STEWART b: 20 NOV 1751 in Groiddoch, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  John is not mentioned in Stewarts of the South and is presumed to have died young.
  4. Has Children Charles STEWART , in Garkechnie b: 20 FEB 1752 in Groiddoch, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to the Callander OPR Charles and his brother James were born only one month apart which is impossible. It's more likely that they were twins and that they were baptized a month apart to avoid any later disputes over heredity in determining which brother was older. This would imply that his elder three brothers all died at birth.

    Charles is recorded in Stewarts of the South as: "Charles, [a] tenant of Garkechnie [on] Erskine of Cardross's estate [in] Port [of Menteith] Parish, Perth county, pay £40 of rent, who has four sons, two grown up to men, the one with himself and the other in the way of service, two remaining under age." OPR records indicate that Charles lived most of his early life in Grodich in Glenfinglas and that he and his wife and their young children did not move to Garkechnie until about 1800.

    Charles married on 7 AND 10 AUG 1784 in Balquhidder and Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Margaret STEWART b: ABT 3 MAR 1765 in Lichscridan, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland, daughter of Patrick Stewart, 7th of Lednascriddan.  They had the following children:

    1. Has No Children Janet STEWART b: 14 MAY 1787 in Groddich, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Janet is presumed to have died young prior to the birth of her same-named sister in 1789.
    2. Has No Children Janet STEWART b: 14 MAY 1789 in Groddich, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
    3. Has No Children Alexander STEWART b: 11 SEP 1792 in Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland.  It's possible that Alexander is from a different family as it is unexpected that he would be born in Edinburgh. It's easily possible that there was a second family in Edinburgh with parents Charles Stewart and Margaret Stewart who only had one recorded (as there is no record of any other children to such a couple in Edinburgh), but this Alexander fits perfectly both onomastically and chronologically with the family of Alexander and Margaret Stewart from Grodich. So it would seem that Alexander and his wife had business in Edinburgh in 1792 and that Elizabeth gave birth to Alexander (Jr) while they were in Edinburgh. It is further suggested that Alexander died young prior to the birth of his same-named brother in 1796.
    4. Has No Children Peter STEWART b: ABT 20 JUL 1794 in Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Peter is described in Stewarts of the South as being one of the four sons of Charles Stewart: "two grown up to men, the one with himself and the other in the way of service, two remaining under age." Peter would be one of the first two, but it's not safe to assume that he is the first or that Stewarts of the South has them in the correct order.
    5. Has Children Alexander STEWART b: 03 OCT 1796 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Alexander is described in Stewarts of the South as being one of the four sons of Charles Stewart: "two grown up to men, the one with himself and the other in the way of service, two remaining under age." Alexander would be one of the first two, but it's not safe to assume that he is the second or that Stewarts of the South has them in the correct order.  Alexander married on 12 JAN 1847 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland to Margaret STEWART b: 1826 in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland.  Her birth family has not been identified.  They had the following children:
      1. Has No Children Agnes STEWART b: 05 JAN 1848 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  Anges is presumed to have died young prior to the birth of her same-named sister in 1853.
      2. Has Children Charles STEWART b: 26 SEP 1849 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  Charles married on 1879 in Bridgeton, Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland to Margaret BLAIR b: 1852 in Scotland.  They had the following children:
        1. Has No Children Janet STEWART b: 28 DEC 1881 in Kippen, Stirling, Scotland
        2. Has No Children Alexander STEWART b: 07 JUN 1884 in Kippen, Stirling, Scotland
        3. Has No Children Charles STEWART b: 05 DEC 1885 in Logie, Perthshire, Scotland
        4. Has No Children Robert William STEWART b: 25 JUN 1888 in Chattershall, Kippen, Stirling, Scotland
      3. Has No Children Margaret STEWART b: 15 JUN 1851 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.
      4. Has No Children Agnes STEWART b: 12 JUN 1853 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  Agnes died in childhood from measles. Died on 11/06/1855 at 06.00am parish port of menteith cause of death pneumonia after measles. Informant Alexander Stewart father.
    6. Has No Children Charles STEWART b: 22 MAR 1802 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  Charles is described in Stewarts of the South as being one of the four sons of Charles Stewart: "two grown up to men, the one with himself and the other in the way of service, two remaining under age." Charles would be one of the younger two. Charles died young and is found in Mitchell's Monumental Inscriptions in Port of Menteith Cemetery buried next to his uncle Duncan Stewart : 47 (next to 46) 1834.  Charles STEWART, 2 SEP 1833, age 31.
    7. Has No Children John STEWART b: ABT 12 JAN 1805 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  John is described in Stewarts of the South as being one of the four sons of Charles Stewart: "two grown up to men, the one with himself and the other in the way of service, two remaining under age." John would be one of the younger two.
  5. Has Children James STEWART , in Chrochavie b: 30 MAR 1752 in Groiddich, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  James is described in Stewarts of the South as: "James, [the] second son of Alexander, and brother to Charles. [James was a] tacksman of Crochavie [in] Aberfoil parish [in the] Lordship of Mentieth! Duke of Montrose's property! pays £130 of rent!!! who left five sons." (The multiple exclamation marks are preserved from the original document. Their meaning is uncertain, but the author of Stewarts of the South indicated that he was a very close friend of this family, so that may be the reason for his enthusiastic punctuation.) James married firstly on 8 MAY 1780 to Janet FERGUSSON b. ABT 1755 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland. They were recorded as "both in this parish" at the time of their marriage.  They had the following children:
    1. Has No Children Alexander STEWART b: 27 APR 1781 in Groddich, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Alexander is recorded in Stewarts of the South as: "Alexander, who died last year (ca. 1814), one of my most familiar acquaintances on earth, and a very great favourite, a clever [and] active man and a good scholar."
    2. Has No Children Margaret STEWART b: 8 MAY 1783 in Offrans, Strathgartney, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
    3. Has No Children Charles STEWART b: ABT 1785 in Offrans, Strathgartney, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Charles is described in Stewarts of the South as: "Charles, the present tacksman of Crochavie, a person who might well pass in the Golden Age! (reference uncertain) If all men were of his disposition there would be no occasion for many of abilities either in the cabinet or in the field - the lamb might eat with the wolf [and so on]. I intend to spend the remainder of my life with him so being that he marries a woman of a similar disposition to himself."  A later reference in Stewarts of the South (ca. 1815) indicates that Charles became guardian of his younger half-brothers, Robert and John, after their father died.
    4. Has No Children Anne STEWART b: ABT 2 NOV 1787 in Offrans, Strathgartney, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
    5. Has No Children Elizabeth STEWART b: 23 MAR 1790 in Offrans, Strathgartney, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  It's likely that Elizabeth died young before the birth of her same-named half-sister in 1802. However because they were half-sisters it's possible they both lived and their parents used the name Elizabeth twice.
    6. Has Children Duncan STEWART b: 04 NOV 1792 in Offrans, Strathgartney, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Duncan is described in Stewarts of the South as: "Duncan, master gardener with Mr Peel Member of Parlaiment [for] South Wales. He also superintends the farming and is a very clever active man. Few may be said to excel him. He is unmarried." Duncan is found marrying in Wales in 1819 afterwhich he moved to Stradsett, Norfolk, England where he remained for the rest of his life as a landed proprietor of a 150 acre farm.  Duncan married on 03 DEC 1819 in Llanbadarnfawr, Cardigan, Wales to Esther GOODWIN b: ABT 1800.  Esther is presumed to have come from Wales.  Her birth family has not been identified.  She died prior to the 1841 census so no further information is known about her.  They had the following children:
      1. Has No Children James STEWART b: 1822 in Stradsett, Norfolk, England
      2. Has No Children Elizabeth STEWART b: ABT 11 SEP 1825 in Stradsett, Norfolk, England
      3. Has No Children Charles Duncan STEWART b: ABT 20 MAR 1833 in Stradsett, Norfolk, England

    James Stewart in Chrochavie married secondly on 13 AND 24 JAN 1798 in Aberfoyle and Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Janet STEWART b: ABT 1770 in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland.  Her birth family has not been identified.  The Callander OPR records James' second marriage: James STEWART in this parish and Jannet STEWART in the parish of Aberfoil enlisted for proclamation in order to marriage 14th and were married the 24th January 1798.  James and Janet had the following children:

    1. Has Children Robert STEWART , of Offerans and Culnagrein b: 25 JUL 1798 in Offrance, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Robert is listed in Stewarts of the South as one of the children of James Stewart in Crochavie. No description is given of Robert except to mention that he and his brother John were both residing with their elder half-brother Charles after their father died.

      Robert Stewart is listed in Mitchell's Monumental Inscriptions in Brig o' Turk cemetery: 4. Robert STEWART, Culnagrein, died 60 JUN 1881, age 82, wife Margaret DRUMMOND, 28 JAN 1863, age 65, three children: Jane 31 JAN 1842, age 18, only son James, 28 MAY 1845, age 13, Isabella, 13 FEB 1852, age 15; Elizabeth, 23 JUL 1904, age 65.

      Robert is referred to in Malcolm Gray's notes as "of Offerings" (sic, Offerans on Loch Vennacher). The source of this reference is unknown but is presumably from family records.

      Robert married on 26 MAY 1827 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Margaret DRUMMOND b: 1798 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland, daughter of Duncan Drummond and Mary Stewart (daughter of James Stewart in Invercarnaig of the Stewarts of Auchnahard.  They had the following children:

      1. Has Children Mary STEWART b: 26 MAY 1830 in Blargarie, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Mary had relations with Peter MCINTYRE and had the following natural child:
        1. Has No Children Mary Ann MCINTYRE b: 28 SEP 1855 in Port of Meneith, Perthshire, Scotland.  She was "born in fornication."

        Mary Stewart later married on 1 JUL 1857 in Kilmichael, Glassary, Argylle, Scotland to Duncan CAMPBELL b: 1838 in Dalavich, Argyll, Scotland.  They had the following children:

        1. Has No Children John CAMPBELL b: 12 FEB 1858 in Kilninver, Argyll, Scotland

      2. Has No Children James STEWART b: 10 MAR 1832 in Blairgarie, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  James died in childhood.  His grave inscription describes him as his father's "only son".
      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.  Isabella died young
      5. Has No Children Elizabeth STEWART b: 11 OCT 1838 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  Elizabeth lived to an old age, but never married.
    2. Has No Children Elizabeth STEWART b: 22 MAY 1802 in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland
    3. Has No Children John STEWART b: 29 NOV 1807 in Aberfoyle, Perthshire, Scotland.  Stewarts of the South describes John as: "John, [who is] of a second marriage. [He and his brother Robert] live with their brother Charles." Their father had died by the time of the writing of Stewarts of the South (ca. 1815). John and Robert would have been still minors at this time. Presumably their elder brother became their guardian.

      This John is believed to be the one referred to by Mrs Stewart of Milton as the latter of the two: "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." 

  6. Has No Children Robert STEWART b: 20 SEP 1756 in Groiddoch, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Robert is not mentioned in Stewarts of the South and is presumed to have died young.
  7. Has No Children Janet STEWART b: 18 DEC 1758 in Groiddoch, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
  8. Has No Children Margaret STEWART b: 20 JAN 1761 in Groiddoch, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
  9. Has No Children Alexander STEWART b: ABT 2 JAN 1763 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  Alexander is not mentioned in Stewarts of the South and is presumed to have died young
  10. Has Children Duncan STEWART , in Lochend b: 13 NOV 1764 in Groddich, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Duncan is described in Stewarts of the South as: "Duncan, [a] brother to James Stewart, [is a] tenant of Crochavie was tacksman of Lochend [in] Perth County, [in] Port [of Menteith] Parish, [on] Erskine of Cardross' [estate]. [Duncan is] a respectable farmer [and has] three sons [who are] under age. [He pays] £120 rent." This reference indicates that he was tacksman (intermediate landlord) of the property of Lochend, but that in 1815 he was residing on his brother Charles' property at Crochavie. Mitchell's MI's (cited below) would seem to indicate that Duncan did later move to Lochend and reside there as that is where he died.

    Duncan is recorded in Mitchell's Monumental Inscriptions for Port of Menteith Cemetery: "46 (next to 45) Duncan STEWART died (at) Lochend 1828, wife Mary SANDS died 1857, seven children." He is buried with his wife and adjacent to his daughters Elizabeth and Jean/Jane, and his nephew Charles. This reference indicates that they had seven (surviving) children. As there are 11 births recorded for this couple then we must presume that four of their children died young. We know that daughters Elizabeth and Jean/Jane predeceased their parents. Whether they are included among the seven referenced on their parents' gravestone is unclear.  The fact that only one of the children of this family can be found in later census records may indicate that the remainder of the family emigrated.

    Duncan Stewart is presumed to have married Mary SANDS b: 1770 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland, although no record of their marriage has been found.  They had the following children:

    1. Has No Children Alexander STEWART b: 9 SEP 1805 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland
    2. Has Children Jean STEWART b: 26 AUG 1806 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  Jean is found in Mitchell's Monumental Inscriptions for Port of Menteith Cemetery: "44  James BUCHANAN, wife Jane STEWART, 9 MAY 1834, age 26, mother Jane SANDS died (at) Stirling 23 JAN 1860, age 83, daughter Mary 14 JUL 1843, age 13." She is buried adjacent to her parents. Given the date of her death and the ages of her children it seems likely that she died in childbirth.  Jean married in APR 1829 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland to James BUCHANAN b: ABT 15 APR 1803 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland, son of Isaac Buchanan and Jane Sands.  They had the following children:
      1. Has No Children Mary BUCHANAN b: 20 MAR 1830 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland
      2. Has No Children Isaac BUCHANAN b: 8 JUN 1832 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland

      James Buchanan married secondly on 16 DEC 1836 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire and Balfron, Stirlingshire, Scotland to Janet CAMERON b: 1803 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  Their descendants are beyond the scope of this research project.

    4. Has No Children Elizabeth STEWART b: 16 AUG 1810 in Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland.  Elizabeth died young.

    9. Has No Children Charles STEWART b: 22 JUL 1819 in Balfron, Stirlingshire, Scotland.  Charles was residing with his widowed mother in 1841 and 1851 in Monievrechie, Port of Menteith, Perthshire, Scotland and unmarried. 1851 census gives his place of birth as Balfron, Stirling, but 1841 says Perthshire. He was baptized in Port of Menteith, Perthshire. The OPR has not been consulted yet.

Research leads on this branch

Alexander Stewart, b 1838 in Kincardine was residing in 1851 with William Stewart, son of Duncan Stewart in Lochend (above).  The only matching Alexander Stewart born in Kincardine is the following:

Alexander Stewart and Christian Gow (all births in Kincardine by Doune, Perthshire, Scotland)

  1. 1831 March 13 John, son to Alexr Stewart and Christian Gow.

  2. 1833 May 12 Kathrine, dr to Alexr Stewart and Christian Gow.

  4. 1837 Octr 22 Alexr, son to Alexr Stewart and Christian Gow.

 

Robert Stewart in Gartmore

Two possible families can be identified for Robert Stewart in Gartmore, each with identical male onomastics.  However the first of these has already been identified with the Stewarts in Edraleachdanch.

Robert STEWART and Elizabeth MCFARLANE, m 24 MAR 1757 in Aberfoyle

  1. Agnes STEWART, bap 13 FEB 1758 in Aberfoyle
  2. James STEWART, bap 29 JAN 1762 in Aberfoyle
  3. George STEWART, b/b 5/6 AUG 1764 in Letter, Callander
  4. David STEWART, bap 12 APR 1767 in Port of Menteith
  5. (Patrick STEWART, b abt 1770)

Robert STEWART and Margaret TAYLOR, m 7 DEC 1773 in Port of Menteith and Kippen, Stirling, Scotland. -- This one seems to be the best match

  1. Helen STEWART, bap 22 DEC 1774 in Port of Menteith
  2. James STEWART, bap 26 OCT 1776 in Port of Menteith
  3. George STEWART, bap 27 OCT 1778 in Port of Menteith
  4. William STEWART, bap 29 NOV 1780 in Port of Menteith
  5. Robert STEWART, bap 8 OCT 1788 in Port of Menteith
  6. John STEWART, bap 8 OCT 1788 in Port of Menteith
  7. David STEWART, bap 17 JUL 1792 in Port of Menteith

Another Robert Stewart can be found in Port of Menteith, but only one son can be found for him, whereas Robert in Gartmore had four sons.

Robert STEWART possibly m to Mary WRIGHT, 28 MAY 1781 in Port of Menteith

  1. Christian STEWART, bap 5 AUG 1782 in Port of Menteith
  2. Alexander STEWART, bap 23 MAY 1784 in Port of Menteith
  3. Margaret STEWART, bap OCT 1786 in Port of Menteith

The most promising candidate for Robert Stewart in Gartmore is the one who married Margaret Taylor (above).  His eldest son is named James.  An excellent match can be found for his birth with Robert STEWART, b/b 30/30 SEP 1724 in Auchnahard, son of James Stewart in Auchnahard (with no mother's name given).  The challenge is that, if correct, Robert would have been 50 when he married and nearly 70 when his last child was born.

Charles Stewart, son of Duncan Stewart in Lochend can be found in later census records with the following family residing nearby (on the same census page):

Margaret STEWART, b 1784 in Port of Menteith, residing 1851 at 7 Monievrachie, P of M with Catherine STEWART (lodger) b 1845 in P of M and Mary MACFARLANE b 1809 in Pof M.  all are paupers, next door to Charles STEWART (above) at #8

Possible Descendants of Sean Robert Stewart in Duart

Fellow researcher Belinda Dettman has transcribed the following family which seems certain to fit into the tree above at an undetermined location.

James STEWART in Duart, b. ABT 1700.  He married Margaret STEWART 22 Nov 1733 Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  [Entry in the Callander baptismal (!) register says: 1733. James and Margaret Stewart both in this parish listed themselves to be proclaimed in order to marriage 10th November and after orderly proclamation got Extract thereof to be married by the Mins. of Balquhidder 22d of the said.]  He may be the James Stewart referred to in The Ardvorlich History regarding John Buidhe Mor in Auchnahard where it says "another James S married his daughter."  Thus his wife Margaret Stewart may be the daughter of John Buidhe Mor in Auchnahard, but she seems a generation late.  Children of James Stewart in Dowart and Margaret Stewart were as follows:

  1. Janet; born 8 Aug 1736 in Dowart, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.

  2. Johne; born 13 Aug 1740 in Dowart, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.

  3. Marrian; born 15 Jul 1743 Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.

  4. Duncan; born 17 Mar 1750 in Dowart, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.

The following reference from Mitchell's MIs indicates that this family is related to Robert Stewart in Duart, but this family has not been identified in Stewarts of the South:

46         1793.  pelican plucking its breast, in her nest (crest of the STEWART family).  John STEWART and Mary MCINTYRE.

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.
