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.

Disclaimer

This page does not purport to present a full genealogical account of the Stewarts of Invernahyle.  The Stewarts of Invernahyle were NOT related to the Stewarts of Balquhidder.  They are a cadet branch of the Stewarts of Appin.  However they had ownership and interests in various properties in Balquhidder, Callander and Kilmadock parishes, and they were prominent among the Stewarts in Glen Finglas.  These parishes were predominantly populated by various cadet branches of the Stewarts of Balquhidder.  The Stewarts of Invernahyle also married into many branches of the Stewarts of Balquhidder.  Some of the Stewarts of Invernahyle are also recorded in Stewarts of the South, a major source document for the Stewarts of Balquhidder.

In order for the Stewarts of Balquhidder Research Group to more accurately identify the various descendants of the Stewarts of Balquhidder, it has become helpful for us to produce an accounting of those branches of the Stewarts of Invernahyle who had geographic or marital connections with the Stewarts of Balquhidder.

As such, if you are a descendant of the Stewarts of Invernahyle you may not find your branch accounted for below.  Please understand why your branch may not fall within the scope of our research interests and why we may not publish your branch below and why we may not be able to assist you with your research questions. 

We would HIGHLY encourage descendants of the Stewarts of Invernahyle or the Stewarts of Appin to create their own website much as we have done with the Stewarts of Balquhidder.

The Stewarts of Invernahyle were a cadet branch of the Stewarts of Appin, probably the most famous of the Highland Stewart clans.  As noted above, the Stewarts of Invernahyle are not descended from any branch of the Stewarts of Balquhidder.  However the Stewarts of Invernahyle had several cadet branches who married into branches of the Stewarts of Balquhidder and many others who resided in territory dominated by the Stewarts of Balquhidder.  Thus, in order to sort out which Stewarts are which it has become helpful to the Stewarts of Balquhidder Research Group to produce an accounting of the Stewarts of Invernahyle.

v -- This symbol is used below to indicate a point at which there is a connection between the Stewarts of Invernahyle and the Stewarts of Balquhidder, whether marital, geographic or otherwise.

Descendants of the Stewarts of Invernahyle married multiple times primarily into various families of the Stewarts of Annat (a cadet branch of the Stewarts of Ardvorlich) as well as the Stewarts of Glenbuckie.  In fact, descendants of this family quite aggressively pursued the Glenbuckie estates and eventually gained control of them

There are two branches of the Stewarts of Invernahyle who are prominently mentioned in the document known as Stewarts of the South Stewarts of the South is an early 19th century accounting of all the known descendants of the Stewarts of Balquhidder and includes an appendix of other Stewarts who were not related to the Stewarts of Balquhidder but who were residing in their "territory."  The Appendix to Stewarts of the South specifically identifies two branches of the Stewarts of Invernahyle who resided in Stewarts of Balquhidder territory; both of which descend from Donald nan Ord Stewart, 2nd of Invernahyle.

The author of Stewarts of the South describes the following Stewart families from Invernahyle who resided in Balquhidder, Callander and Kilmadock parishes:

Colonel Stewart Sir, I finished the Stewarts of the South the best I could with all the different branches of the three [principal] branches.  I now proceed to other branches that belongs not to them. Sir, you may depend upon it that it is not to every one that I wanted to take the trouble, or trouble other men for it.

Branch First

There was one Duncan McCallain (son of Allan) of the family of Invernahavil commonly called Sliochd Dhavil na Noard (This is a corruption of "Sliochd Dhomhnaill nan Oard" or "The Seed of Donald of the Hammer") in Appin of Stewart that came to Glenfinglas in the way of a shepherd or driver [drover] with one of the family of Glenbuckie and married there and had three sons and some daughters:

  1. Alexander

    1. Son (probably "Duncan")

      1. Alexander's grand child, Duncan, [is] now a gentleman tacksman of Glengaoil [in] Callander parish, rent £550.  [He] has four sons [who are] all minors.

      2. Son

        1. Alexander Stewart, a brother's son of Duncan in the tack, [is] with himself [and] unmarried

  2. Son

    1. Grandson

      1. Duncan Stewart, [a] tenant [in] Duart [in] Glenfinglas [in] Callander Parish [on the] Earl of Moray['s property] [is a] great grandson to Duncan [McCallain].  [He has] the eight part of the tack [and pays] rent £111.2.6, as there is £60 of advance is put on the whole £140 for another farm in Port [of Menteith] parish [in] Perth county, called Duilatur.

        1. One son, [who is a] Buchanan barrack master [in] Fort William

  3. Donald

    1. Son

      1. Alexander Stewart, [a] shoemaker in Edinburgh, [is a] grandson of Donald.  [Alexander is] a bachelor.

This finishes Sliochd Donach Mhic Callain.

Branch 2

There was another branch of Sliochd Invernahavil (another name for the clan of "Donald of the Hammer") commonly called Sliochd Dhuail Mhic Callin ("Children of Donald son of Allan") of the very branch that Bohalie in Athol was [from, namely] Sliochd Dhuail Mhic Callin mhic Donal na nord ("Children of Dugal, son of Allan, son of Donald of the Hammer" which also reveals that the common ancestor, Allan, was a son of Donald).

They came first from Appin to the Braes of Rannoch [and] from that to Glenlochay [and] from thence to Glendochard of whom Allan Stewart, cousin to Bohalie, came to be Grand Officer to the Earl of Murray at the Bridge end of Devon to whom he was a great favourite.

Allan's father was called Donach Mhac Allan Mhic Duail. (lit. "Duncan, son of Allan, son of Dugald").  He [Duncan] was innkeeper in Tighnaluib ("house on the bay") in Glendochard and married to a daughter of Invernahavil.  They were thought to be the most hardy race of all the Stewarts and [the] stoutest of [the] Appin [Stewarts] except [for the] Ardshiel family.

Allan Stewart had two sons.  Allan [whose father was Duncan,] was married to a daughter of one Doctor [Robert] Stewart of the house of Annat.  He had only one son by the wife and [also] a natural son. 

  1. The son by the wife was a soldier in the foot guards and had a family in London.

  2. Robert, the natural son, the tacksman of Lendrich ?castle [on] Sir John McGregor-Murray's [property] was one of the most active men in the country.  [He] left four sons:

    1. Haldane, [who] died in the East Indies and made a fortune there and left it [to his family].  He left two brothers in a great way there.  They were I think...

    2. Duncan &

    3. Allan

    4. There is another, the youngest, called Colbert, [who is] with his mother in Callander of Monteith

Alexander Stewart, brother to Allan that was in Doune, [was a] tenant [in] Easter Invernenty [in] Balquhidder parish, [which is] now the property of Captain Stewart of Glenbuckie.  [Alexander] left two sons:

  1. one of them, James, [who is] in the state of New York in America, has a large family

  2. Duncan, the youngest, [was] once [a] tacksman of Invernenty and a great cattle dealer.  [He] was married to a sister of Duncan Stewart, tacksman of Glengoil. [She is] now living with her brother at Glengoil (presumably as a widow).  [Duncan] left her three sons [who are] minors.  [They are all] very promising and active like

This is all the Sliochd Dhuil Mhic Callin ("Children of Donald, son of Allan") except brothers to Charles a Bhaile ("Charles of Bohally"), I mean grandchildren to Thearlach Bhallie (Charles of Bohally), brothers to Niel Stewart, [the] musician, [whose] wife [is] in Perth. (This reference is unclear.  Niel Stewart the musician was a brother of Charles Stewart of Bohally, but they were not grandchildren of another Charles of Bohally.)

Other Stewarts

Mr Duncan Stewart, late minister of Balquidder, [who was] of Strathgarry in Athol, left three sons:

  1. Alexander, a Captain to the Honourable East India Company
  2. Duncan, a surgeon in London
  3. Robert, the youngest, a Lieutenant in the same corps [as Alexander]

John Stewart, [a] tenant Easter Lots of Greenock [in] Callander parish, [which is] a part of the Barony of Callander, once belonging to the Perth family, [but] now the property of one Mr Hunter from Edinburgh. £30 of rent.  [John Stewart] has four sons

  1. Duncan, a flesher and a publican in Glasgow, [who] has two sons
  2. John, a flesher in Edinburgh, [who is] not married
  3. Archibald, [living with his brother Charles]
  4. Charles, with their father

[John] says, himself, that he is of the family of Invernahavil in Appin, of which I am doubtful. [I believe] he is a Combach from Glenlyon.

Stewart Clan Magazine provides the following two references pertaining to Stewarts of Invernahyle:

Dugald14 Stewart (Duncan13, Donald12, Alexander11, Alan10), second son of Duncan, third of Invernahyle [page 11], was first of Innischaoraich.  In 1656 he purchased the lands of Innischaoraich and others in Breadalbane from Sir James Campbell of Lawers.  Children:

  1. Alan, second of Innischaoraich; married a daughter of Burden of Fidals and had a son

    1. James, who succeeded him.  James married a daughter of Stewart of Annat and had two sons, both of whom died unmarried.

  2. Neil 

Alexander15 Stewart (Alexander14, Alan13, Donald12, Alexander11, Alan10), fourth of Ballachelish, was born in 1684, and succeeded his uncle John.  He was at Sheriffmuir in 1715 and at Culloden in 1746.  He married (1) Anne Stewart, daughter of John, fourth of Ardsheal.  He married (2) Isabel Stewart, daughter of Alexander of Annat, and by her had:

  1. John, succeeded his father

  2. Alexander, killed at Culloden, where four of his nephews were wounded -- Duncan, Donald, Dugald and Alexander Stewart

  3. Isabella

There is also a brief passing reference in The Ardvorlich History to Branch I of the Stewarts of Invernahyle as follows:

Mary [Stewart, daughter of John Ban Stewart in Auchnahard], who married James [Stewart in] Duart [whose] grandfather [was] Alastair Dubh nan Damh ("Black Alastair of the Stag"), or "Sandy of the Stirks" ("Sandy of the Black Cattle"), who came to the Glen from Appin, and founded the Duart family.  He is said to have been a drover. Their son married Christie, his cousin, and they had a son James, now in Duart, and two daughters.  One married Archie McLaren of Coronach, now at Ardchullerie, and the other, Archibald Buchanan, Calatine, near Doune.

Accurately identifying "Alasdair Dubh nan Damh a.k.a. Sandy of the Stirks" has been problematic and is discussed more fully below under that family's entry.

To help put the entire branch of Invernayle into perspective, we begin our accounting with Alexander Stewart, 4th High Steward of Scotland, who is the latest Stewart ancestor shared in common by the Stewarts of Balquhidder and the Stewarts of Invernahyle.

Predecessors to the Stewarts of Appin

Has Children Alexander STEWART 4th High Steward of Scotland b: 1214 in Crawford, Lanarkshire, Scotland.  Alexander married Jean MACRORY b: BEF 1210 in Bute, Buteshire, Scotland. 

  1. Has Children Sir John STEWART of Bonkyl b: ABT 1245 in Bonkyl, Cambusnethan, Lanarkshire, Scotland
    1. Has Children Sir James STEWART of Pierston b: ABT 1280 in Scotland
      1. Has Children Sir Robert STEWART Of Schanbothy b: ABT 1310 in Scotland

          1. Has Children Sir Robert STEWART 1st of Lorn and 2nd of Innermeath b: ABT 1386 in Scotland
            1. Has Children John STEWART 2nd Of Lorn b: ABT 1410 in Lorn, Argyll, Scotland. Tradition tell us that in 1445, while returning to his seat at Dunstaffnage castle from the great cattle tryst at Crieff, Sir John met and fell in love with the daughter of MacLaren of Ardvech. Although married, he began an affaire with his new love which one year later produced a son. He was christened Dugald and was to be the first Chief of the Stewarts of Appin.  After the death of his first wife, Sir John waited, for reasons we are unaware of today, for 5 years until setting up the marriage between himself and Dugald's mother, but it may have had something to do with the politics of the day. In 1463, Sir John set a wedding date and sent for Dugald and his mother to come to Dunstaffnage. Unknown to Sir John, there was a plot to kill the Lord of Lorn. It is not fully known, but it is thought to have been set up by the Lord of the Isles who was in a power struggle with the King of Scots, and who saw it as being in his best interest to neutralize this powerful and loyal representative of the King in the west highlands. The other plotters, which some feel included Colin Campbell, Lord Argyll, Sir John's son-in-law, were primarily represented by Alan MacCoul, the illegitimate grandson of an earlier MacDougall Chief. As the lightly armed wedding party made it's way from Dunstaffnage to the small chapel located approximately 180 yards from the castle walls, they were attacked by a superior force lead by Alan MacCoul. Although better armed, MacCoul's force was defeated, but not before mortally wounding Lord of Lorn. Sir John was rushed into the chapel and MacCoul and his henchmen ran into and occupied the deserted Dunstaffnage. With his last breath Sir John married Dugald's mother, legitimizing him and making him the de jure Lord of Lorn. After receiving the last rites, Sir John expired and a new chapter in west highland history was opened. (Electric Scotland).  He was father of:
              1. Has Children Dugald STEWART 1st Of Appin b: 1446 in Ardveich, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland (shown below).

The Stewarts of Appin

Has Children Dugald STEWART 1st Of Appin b: 1446 in Ardveich, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland.  Dugald is the progenitor of the Stewarts of Appin. Dugald was originally born illegitimately as the product of an affair between his parents while his father, the Lord of Lorn, was already married. When his father and mother were later married, John, Lord of Lorn, was attacked by enemies at his wedding and mortally wounded. The wedding was later concluded before John died of his injuries and Dugald legitimated.
(See notes on father for more information.)

Dugald gathered all the adherents of the Lord of Lorn and with the assistance of the MacLarens laid siege to Dunstaffnage, but to no avail. Unbeknownst to Dugald, Colin Campbell, Lord Argyll who seemed to have been involved in the plot, raised a group of MacFarlanes to aid MacCoul in his struggle against the de jure Lord of Lorn. MacCoul's men with the MacFarlanes met the men of Lorn and MacLaren in what was to be known as the battle of Leac a dotha. It was a fierce battle with both sides leaving the field with very heavy losses.

For the next few years Dugald, who had lost the title of Lord of Lorn through the treachery of his uncle Walter Stewart and Lord Argyll, but had retained Appin and Lismore, consolidated his power and fortified the hunting lodge of castle Stalker on the Cormant's Rock in Loch Laich. He also ensured that the Campbells were in no doubt about his displeasure over the loss of the Lordship of Lorn by having the Campbell territory surrounding Appin regularly raided by our clan. Finally in 1468 in a bid to finally destroy the power of Appin, Colin Campbell and Walter Stewart, now recognized as the Lord of Lorn (but with no authority in Lorn) organized a massive raid against Dugald and our clan. Alan MacCoul was again involved and they met at what was to be know as the battle of Stalc. Though loosing many men, Dugald virtually destroyed the military strength of the MacFarlands (a destruction they were never to recover from) and personally killed Alan MacCoul, his father's murderer. The battle solidified Dugald's claim to Appin and the surrounding area which was formally granted to him by King James III on the 14th of April 1470. Our clan was born. (Electric Scotland).  Dugald married to Daughter MACDOUGAL of Nether Lorn b: ABT 1460 in Lorn, Argyll, Scotland.  They had the following children:

  1. Has No Children Duncan STEWART b: ABT 1475 in Appin, Argyll, Scotland.  Duncan Stewart was Chamberlain of the Isles for King James IV. He never married and had no children.
  2. Has Children Allan STEWART 3rd Of Appin b: ABT 1478 in Appin, Argyll, Scotland.  (See below.)

Allan Stewart 3rd of Appin

Has Children Allan STEWART 3rd Of Appin b: ABT 1478 in Appin, Argyll, Scotland.  "The major branches or "tacks" of Appin stem from the sons of Alan Stewart, 3rd of Appin. Originally they comprised John, 1st of Strathgarry, Dugald, 1st of Achnacone, James, 1st of Fasnacloich and Alexander, 1st of Invernahyle. Ardsheal, the branch our Chief hails from, was given to John, 1st of Ardsheal by his father, John Stewart, 5th of Appin." (Electric Scotland)  "Allan Stewart, 3rd of Appin, divided his lands between his five sons: Duncan, 4th of Appin (sic), John of Strathgarry, Dugald of Achnacone, James of Fasnaloich, and Alexander of Invernahyle and thus established the branch clan." (Appin website)  Allan married to Daughter CAMERON of Locheil b: ABT 1480 in Lochiel, Argyll, Scotland.  They had the following children:

  1. Has Children Duncan STEWART b: ABT 1495 in Appin, Argyll, Scotland.  Duncan died during the lifetime of his father and thus did not inherit Appin.  Duncan married Janet GORDON of Huntly b: ABT 1500 in Scotland.  They had:

        1. Has Children John STEWART of Coll b: ABT 1660 in Scotland
          1. Has Children Capt. John Glas STEWART of Benmore b: ABT 1690 in Scotland.  Capt. John Glas STEWART of Benmore (of the family of Coll of Appin), described as "brother of Acharn and cousin and brother in law of Stewart of Ardsheal was a Captain in the Appin Regiment and fell at Culloden." He is described in Stewarts of the South as "descended of the family of Ardsheil, the most respectable Branch of Appin Stewarts. He was know by the name of Iain Glac (sic "Glas") mhac Iain mhic Alastair. (John "The Grey", son of John, grandson of Alexander.) [John] gathered his substance by cattle dealing, brewing whisky, and by other pieces of industry. [He] purchased Benmore in Glendochard from Drummond of Perth. [It was] formerly the property of Campbell of Coirchaorach of the same place, also Campbell of Licks [in] Killin parish."  He married firstly ABT 1725 to his cousin Margaret STEWART of Ardsheal, b: ABT 1700 in Ardsheal, Appin, Argyll, Scotland, daughter of John Stewart 4th of Ardsheal (see above).
            1. v John STEWART of Benmore and 13th of Glenbuckie b: ABT 1725 in Benmore, Glendochart, Killin, Perthshire, Scotland.  He bought the lands of Glenbuckie from his ailing brother-in-law, Alexander Stewart, 12th Glenbuckie. John and Mary had no children. On his death the estate of Glenbuckie passed to his sister Elizabeth, then to her son, and finally to John's half-brother, Duncan.
            2. vHas Children Elizabeth STEWART Heiress of Glenbuckie b: ABT 1730 in Benmore, Glendochart, Killin, Perthshire, Scotland.  When Elizabeth's full brother John Stewart, 13th of Glenbuckie, died she inherited Glenbuckie. According to SOS, Betty married David STEWART of Craig Ruidh, Balquhidder of the Stewarts of Glenogle, Cloichglas, or Hyndfield, of the Gartnafuaran family. Thus David Stewart became 14th of Glenbuckie. When Elizabeth died Glenbuckie passed laterally to her half-brother, Capt. Duncan Stewart. Meanwhile, Dr. David Stewart in Auchnahard, son of Alexander Stewart, 10th of Glenbuckie, attempted unsuccessfully to reclaim Glenbuckie. So reviled was Elizabeth for her part in swindling the estate of Glenbuckie away from its lawful heirs that the author of Stewarts of the South described her as "a daughter named Betty, a half idiot, [who] succeed her brother in the estate being heir-at-law" and later in the document could only bring himself to refer to her as "a lady of the name of Stewart in our country, whose name I shall not mention here."  Elizabeth married ABT 1768 to David STEWART 1st of Clachglas & 2nd of Craigruie & 14th of Glenbuckie b: ABT 28 JUL 1718 in Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland

            1. vHas Children Duncan STEWART 16th of Glenbuckie b: ABT 1750 in Benmore, Glendochart, Killin, Perthshire, Scotland.  Duncan was Chamberlain and Provost of Kintyre and Factor to the Duke Argyll. One commentator wrote "It says much for the Duke of Argyll's generosity that he appointed a Stewart, of Appin blood, as his Chamberlain, so soon after the '45."

              The late Major John Stewart of Ardvorlich in "The Stewarts" (VIII.4, pp 314-5) explained that John Glas Stewart had a son John who sold Benmore and bought Glenbuckie. His full sister Elizabeth succeeded and when she died Duncan, a half brother, his mother being a McNab, was one of her Trustees. Duncan Stewart, who had not a drop of Glenbuckie blood, acquired that estate from the Trustees. He himself had resigned as a Trustee to complete the purchase and some apparently regarded the transaction as rather questionable.  Duncan married in 1796 to his cousin Margaret STEWART of Ardsheal b: ABT 1770 in Ardsheal, Appin, Argyll, Scotland, daughter of Duncan Stewart 6th of Ardsheal above.

Has Children Donald nan Ord STEWART 2nd of Invernahyle b: ABT 1525 in Invernahyle, Appin, Argyle, Scotland.  Donald was nicknamed "nan Ord" ("of the hammer") because of his ability two wield two smiths hammers at a time. He was a very young child when his father was murdered by Green Colin Campbell of Dunstaffnage. Donald was raised in secret by the local blacksmith in order to protect him from the Campbells of Dunstaffnage. Donald was not told of his true identity until he was a youth. Donald took revenge for his father's murder and killed Green Colin Campbell along with several other Campbell. This of course only served to further enflame the feud between the two clans. Donald was alive in 1547 and led Clan Appin at the Battle of Plinkie.  Donald married firstly to Daughter STEWART b: ABT 1535 in Banrannoch, Killin, Perthshire, Scotland, daughter of John mac Raibeart STEWART of Banrannoch b: ABT 1500 in Banrannoch, Killin, Perthshire, Scotland.  They had:

    Duncan Stewart is the earliest member of this Stewart family on record as having emigrated from Scotland to the New World. According to family tradition, Duncan was born about 1623 in the parish of Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland. He was a soldier who was captured in the Cromwellian War and was shipped to Massachusetts, USA, as an indentured servant.

    Duncan Stewart was transported to Ipswich, Massachusetts sometime before 1649. He was enslaved as an indentured servant to George Hadley in whose service he worked as a shipwright. Duncan married about APR 1654 to Ann Winchurst who was an indentured servant of John Cogswell. Duncan and Ann were whipped for fornication by order of the church sometime prior to their marriage.

    Duncan's death record (cited below) indicates that he was "about 100 years old" at his time of death in 1717. This would suggest a birth date as early as 1617

    The records of deaths of First Church, Rowley had (Duncan's son) John Stewart, aged 90 years and 8 or 9 months, which would give him a birth date of February or March 1666, and make his birth in Newbury, three years earlier than Henry's. This verbatim record is also from the same source: "1717. Dunkin Stewart, about (it's thot) an 100 years old, Aug 30"; and "1729. Old Widow Stewart, relict of Duncan, July 9."

    Another family tradition cites that Duncan was 94 when he died which would suggest a birth date of 1623. However we have been unable to ascertain the source of this tradition.

    It would appear from the names of Duncan's children and grandchildren that his family did not maintain traditional naming customs in the USA. They seem to have favoured biblical names suggesting they may have lived in a Puritanical community. The fact that Duncan married an English woman may also have influenced his break from traditional onomastics.

This publication has remained a definitive resource for Stewart genealogists ever since.

Duncan settled firstly at Kilmun in Cowal, but after the abolition of Prelacy he removed to Blair Atholl where he continued to preach as an Episcopalian. Duncan purchased the lands of Strathgarry and Inverchaddan. Duncan is described in the Fasti Ecclesia as: "Duncan Stewart, born 1660, fourth son of Donald Stewart of Inverhahyle; educated at the University of Glasgow; Master of Arts 20th July 1675; admitted to Dunoon about 1689, but deprived by Act of Parliament restoring Presbyterian minister, 25th April 1690; intruded here [Blair Atholl] before 11th Oct 1709. At 21st Feb 1716 he is stated to have "intruded into the Kirks of Blair-Atholl and Struan, these many years by-gone, never having paryed for King George, but only in general terms for the Sovereign, having read the proclamation for the Thanksgiving for the Pretender's safe arrival on the 22nd Jan last, having also a great hand in influencing the people to rebellion, and read all the proclamations emitted by the Earl of Mar." He died between 7th March 1727 and 10th March 1730. He married (1) Anna, daughter of Aeneas (Angus) McLaine, Minister of Kilfinan and had issue -- Alexander of Strathgarry, Donald; (2) Janet McCalman (she survived him and married (2) Aug 1730 to James Stewart, writer in Edinburgh), and had issue -- John, died young; Allan of Innerhadden; Catherine (married Alexander stwart of Duntanlich); Elizabeth (married Donald Maclaren of Invernenty); a daughter (married a son of Cambpell of Glenlyon); Robina (married Patrick "mac Pheti" Stewart of the Ballechin family.)

Gen. Archibald MACNAB b: 1710 in Killin, Perthshire, Scotland, son of Robert MACNAB 14th of Macnab.  Christian MacNab is described in The Scottish Journal as "a daughter of the Laird of MacNab." However Stirnet shows her as the daughter of "General MacNab of MacNab." The only contemporary 'General McNab' was Lieut. Gen. Archibald MacNab who was a son of the Laird of MacNab. Christian fits perfectly as Archibald's daughter. Thus Stirnet is presently preferred as a corrective to The Scottish Journal.

vHas Children Rev. Duncan STEWART 4th of Strathgarry and of Wester Invernenty and Minister of Balquhidder b: 31 MAR 1747 in Strathgarry, Blair Atholl, Perthshire, Scotland.  Duncan is described in Stewarts of the South as: "Mr Duncan Stewart, late minister of Balquidder, [who was] of Strathgarry in Athol, left three sons: Alexander, a Captain to the Honourable East India Company, Duncan, a surgeon in London, Robert, the youngest, a Lieutenant in the same corps [as Alexander]." Duncan is also mentioned in the following reference pertaining to David Stewart of Craig Roy: ""David [Stewart of Craig Ruidh], by the extravagance of his wife, Betty, was under the necessity of enlisting as a single soldier, being but a simple good natured man and servant for seven years [to?] the late Revd Mr Maclaggan [of] Blair Athol in the 42d Regiment. After his return home rents were higher and his circumstances became more easy. And by his simplicity and short sight, he sold Wester Invernenty, Braes of Balquhidder, to the late Rev Mr Stewart whose son hath it yet also sold Blarchrich, Braes of Balquhidder, to the late worthy Capt Robert Fergusson of Stronvar. The Reverend Dunn Stewart bought Blarcroich from Capt R Fergusson's nephew, the present Provost of Cupar in Fife - which farms his estate with Wester Invernenty, Braes of Balquhidder, now the property of his son Capt Alexander Stewart of Strathgarry in Athol, of the East India Company. Mr Stewart, [the] minister, was called by many "covetous and greedy", [but] I thought this was not justice to his character. I believe he was a friendly and honourable gentleman. Many who slandered him would wish him back again."

Duncan is also described in the Fasti Ecclesia as: "Duncan Stewart, born 31st March 1747, eldest son of Alexander Stewart, minister of Blair-Atholl; educated at the University of St. Andrews; licensed by the Presbytery of Perth 21st Nov 1771; presented by John, Duke of Atholl, 20th May, and ordained 17th Sept 1772; died 12th Sept. 1804.

The corps in question was the Honourable East India Company. Census records show that he was part of the Bengal Army of the HEIC and was subsequently promoted to Major General. The 1851 census shows Robert as a Colonel in the Bengal Infantry and residing at 24 Duke St., St. Mary, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland. The 1861 census shows Robert as a Major General in the Bengal Army and residing at Derculich House, Dull, Perthshire.  Robert married to Grace MENZIES b: 1810 in Rannoch, Fortingall, Perthshire, Scotland.  They had:

Alan Stewart 2nd of Innishchaoraich

Has Children Alan STEWART 2nd of Innischaoraich b: ABT 1630 in Innischaoraich, Glenlochy, Breadalbane, Perthshire, Scotland.  Alan married to Daughter BURDEN of Fidals b: ABT 1630 in Scotland.  They had:

  1. vHas Children James STEWART 3rd of Innischaoraich b: ABT 1655.  According to The Annat Tree, James married a daughter of Alexander Stewart, 3rd of Annat, but which daughter is not known. It could be one of the other two daughters already shown here or it could be another one whose identity is unknown. This marriage is supported by The Scottish Journal which also shows the two sons as shown here. However according to Gordon MacGregor: James STEWART, 3rd of Incherich. (b. ca. 1635) married 25 JAN 1664 to Grizzel CAMPBELL, daughter of James Campbell, portioner of Duncrosk and had: 1. Duncan STEWART (b. ca. 1665); 2. Alexander STEWART; 3.Dugal STEWART.  According to the Invernahyle genealogy in The Scottish Journal, James was succeeded in Innischaoraich by his uncle, Neil Stewart of Ledcharrie and Edarramhionoich. Although it appears this succession is correct, it is difficult to understand why all of James' brothers were passed over in the succession in preference of his uncle, unless Neil Stewart purchased Innischaoraich from James rather than inherited it.  James married Daughter STEWART b: ABT 1675 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland, daughter of Alexander STEWART 3rd of Annat and Janet EDMUNSTON of Hermit's Croft.  They had:

  6. vHas Children Margaret STEWART b: ABT 1675 in Inneschaoraich, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to the Kennedy-Annat Tree, Margaret Stewart was daughter of Allan Stewart of Innischaoraich who was in turn son of James Stewart of Innischaoraich. However, Stewarts of the South and the Invernahyle genealogy in The Scottish Journal both show that Allan Stewart, 2nd of Innischaoraich, was the son of Dugald Stewart, 1st of Innischaoraich, and the father of James Stewart, 3rd of Innischaoraich. Furthermore, according to the same source, Margaret married James Stewart predecessor of Drumvaich (of Annat).  Margaret married John STEWART Ancestor of Drumvaich b: ABT 1650 in Annat, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.

Has Children Neil STEWART of Ledcharrie & Edarramhionoich and 4th of Innischoaraich b: ABT 1645 in Innischaoraich, Glenlochy, Breadalbane, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to the Invernahyle genealogy in The Scottish Journal, Neil Stewart had Ledcharrie and Edarramhionoich in Glendochart and succeeded his nephew in Innischaoraich. Although it appears this succession is correct, it is difficult to understand why all of James' brothers were passed over in the succession in preference of his uncle, unless Neil Stewart purchased Innischaoraich from James rather than inherited it. According to MacGregor, Neil was alive in 1694.  Neil married on 06 FEB 1680 to Jean STEWART b: ABT 1655 in Drumcharry, Perthshire, Scotland, daughter of William STEWART 3rd of Drumcharry b: ABT 1615 in Drumcharry, Perthshire, Scotland.  They had:

  1. Has Children John STEWART b: ABT 1680.  According to MacGregor, John was alive in 1707.  John married on 09 FEB 1705 to his cousin Isobel STEWART b: ABT 1680 in Drumcharry, Perthshire, Scotland, daughter of Patrick STEWART 4th of Drumcharry.  They had:
    1. Has Children Charles STEWART of Bohally b: ABT 1710 in Perthshire, Scotland.  According to The Scottish Journal, Charles "purchased Bohalic in Athole, [and] left his estate to his dtr, having no male heirs." Gordon MacGregor shows Charles Stewart of Bohally as the son of John Stewart whereas The Scottish Journal shows Charles as a brother of John. Both accounts show Charles having a brother named Neil. MacGregor's account is a better chronological fit and is presently preferred. According to MacGregor, Charles served as an officer in the Atholl Brigade of the Jacobite army in 1745/46. He was wounded at Culloden and escaped.  Charles married ABT 1750 to Clementina STEWART b: ABT 1725 in Kynnachan, Perthshire, Scotland, daughter of John STEWART of Kynnachan.  They had:
      1. Has No Children Elizabeth STEWART b: ABT 02 AUG 1752 in Blair Atholl, Perthshire, Scotland.  Elizabeth married in 1783 to John MacDiarmid in Dunan and had issue. Their descendants are beyond the scope of this research project.

vThe Invernahyle Stewarts in Doune (Branch 2)


Luib in Glendochart showing it's proximity to Balquhidder.

According to The Scottish Journal, Easter Invernenty was owned by Stewarts of Invernahyle from the time of Donald nan Ord and tenanted by cadets.  Donald nan Ord also owned a property in Kilmadock parish which he rented out.

Stewarts of the South describes this branch as follows:

There was another branch of Sliochd Invernahavil (another name for the clan of "Donald of the Hammer") commonly called Sliochd Dhuail Mhic Callin ("Children of Donald son of Allan") of the very branch that Bohalie in Athol was [from, namely] Sliochd Dhuail Mhic Callin mhic Donal na nord.

They came first from Appin to the Braes of Rannoch [and] from that to Glenlochay [and] from thence to Glendochard of whom Allan Stewart, cousin to Bohalie, came to be Grand Officer to the Earl of Murray at the Bridge end of Devon to whom he was a great favourite.

Allan's father was called Donach Mhac Allan Mhic Duail. (lit. "Duncan, son of Allan, son of Dugal").  He [Duncan] was innkeeper in Tighnaluib ("house on the bay") in Glendochard and married to a daughter of Invernahavil.  They were thought to be the most hardy race of all the Stewarts and [the] stoutest of [the] Appin [Stewarts] except [for the] Ardshiel family.

Allan Stewart had two sons. [Allan] was married to a daughter of one Doctor [Robert] Stewart of the house of Annat.  He had only one son by the wife and [also] a natural son. 

  1. The son by the wife was a soldier in the foot guards and had a family in London.

  2. Robert, the natural son, the tacksman of Lendrich ?castle [on] Sir John McGregor-Murray's [property] was one of the most active men in the country.  [He] left four sons:

    1. Haldane, [who] died in the East Indies and made a fortune there and left it [to his family].  He left two brothers in a great way there.  They were I think...

    2. Duncan &

    3. Allan

    4. There is another, the youngest, called Colbert, [who is] with his mother in Callander of Monteith

Alexander Stewart, brother to Allan that was in Doune, [was a] tenant [in] Easter Invernenty [in] Balquhidder parish, [which is] now the property of Captain Stewart of Glenbuckie.  [Alexander] left two sons:

  1. one of them, James, [who is] in the state of New York in America, has a large family

  2. Duncan, the youngest, [was] once [a] tacksman of Invernenty and a great cattle dealer.  [He] was married to a sister of Duncan Stewart, tacksman of Glengoil. [She is] now living with her brother at Glengoil (presumably as a widow).  [Duncan] left her three sons [who are] minors.  [They are all] very promising and active like

This is all the Sliochd Dhuil Mhic Callin ("Children of Donald, son of Allan") except brothers to Charles a Bhaile ("Charles of Bohally"), I mean grandchildren to Thearlach Bhallie (Charles of Bohally), brothers to Niel Stewart, [the] musician, [whose] wife [is] in Perth.

Sometime in the late 17th century a family of Stewarts from Glendochard came to Glenfinglas as cattle drovers.  They were descended from Clan Appin through Donald Stewart, 2nd of Invernahyle, also known as "Donald of the Hammer", who led Clan Appin at the Battle of Pinkie in 1547.  According to Stewarts of the South, Donald of the Hammer had a descendant, Allan, who was Ground Officer to the Earl of Moray at Bridge End of Devon.  Allan is not recorded in the the Appin genealogy from The Scottish Journal, so the only evidence we have for the origins of this branch comes from Stewarts of the South.

Stewarts of the South says that the first of this family "came with one of the family of Glenbuckie and married there".  This may indicate that the first of this family married a daughter of Glenbuckie.

vHas Children Duncan mac Alan mhic Dougal STEWART Inkeeper at Tighnaluib b: ABT 1660 in Inneschaoraich, Breadalbane, Perthshire, Scotland.  Stewarts of the South indicates that Duncan married a daughter of Invernahyle.

The Kennedy-Annat Tree says that Duncan was the son of Alan Stewart of Innischaoraich who was the son of James Stewart of Innischaoraich. This conflicts with both the patronymic in Stewarts of the South and the Invernahyle genealogy found in The Scottish Journal which both show that Alan was the son of Dugald Stewart 1st of Innischaoraich and the father of James Stewart 3rd of Innischaoraich. It would appear likely that the Kennedy-Annat Tree has confused Alan's father with his son.

Duncan married to a daughter of Stewart of Invernahyle and had:

  1. Has Children Allan STEWART in Doune b: ABT 1690 in Killin, Perthshire, Scotland.  See below.
  2. Has No Children Daughter STEWART b: ABT 1700 in Innischaoraich, Glenlochy, Breadalbane, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to the Kennedy-Annat Tree, Duncan Stewart, son of Alan Stewart of Innischaoraich, had a daughter who married a man named Glass from Stirling.  She married Unknown GLASS from Stirling b: ABT 1700 in Stirling, Stirling, Scotland.

Allan Stewart in Doune

vHas Children Allan STEWART in Doune b: ABT 1690 in Killin, Perthshire, Scotland.  Allan Stewart is described in Stewarts of the South as: "There was another branch of Sliochd Invernahavil (another name for the clan of "Donald of the Hammer") commonly called Sliochd Dhuail Mhic Callin ("Children of Donald son of Allan") of the very branch that Bohalie in Athol was [from, namely] Sliochd Dhuail Mhic Callin mhic Donal na nord ("Children of Dugal, son of Allan, son of Donald of the Hammer" which also reveals that the common ancestor, Allan, was a son of Donald). They came first from Appin to the Braes of Rannoch [and] from that to Glenlochay [and] from thence to Glendochard of whom Allan Stewart, cousin to Bohalie, came to be Grand Officer to the Earl of Murray at the Bridge end of Devon to whom he was a great favourite. Allan Stewart had two sons. [Allan] was married to a daughter of one Doctor [Robert] Stewart of the house of Annat. He had only one son by the wife and [also] a natural son."  Allan married to Jean or Janet STEWART b: 04 APR 1713 in Doune, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland, daughter of Dr. Robert Stewart in Doune and Mary Moir, with Dr. Robert Stewart being the son of John Stewart, 2nd of Annat.  They had:

  1. v Katharine STEWART b: ABT 03 AUG 1734 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  We do not yet have a transcription for this birth to know the exact location. Katharine is presumed to have died in childhood prior to the birth of her same-named sister in 1749.

vAllan is believed to have also been involved with Isobel STEWART b: ABT 1712 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland, daughter of John STEWART Ancestor of Drumvaich and Margaret Stewart of Inneschaoraich.  It is believed that Isobel was a daughter of John Stewart, predecessor of Drumvaich. They had the following natural son:

  1. v John STEWART b: ABT 30 DEC 1735 in Machieston of Kilmadock, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  John's birth was witnessed by Robert STUART there and John STUART Yr of Annat. John's father's name is given as Allan in the IGI, but as "John" in Malcolm Gray's transcriptions. The IGI is presently preferred. John is not mentioned in Stewarts of the South and is presumed to have died young.

Allan was involved secondly with Mary STEWART.  They had the following natural son:

  1. vHas Children Robert STEWART b: ABT 11 DEC 1736 in Doune, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Robert is described in Stewarts of the South as: "Robert, the natural son [of Allan Stewart], the tacksman of Lendrich ?castle [on] Sir John McGregor-Murray's [property] was one of the most active men in the country."  Robert firstly had relations with Margaret MCGRIGOR b: ABT 1735 in Perthshire, Scotland by whom he had the following natural son:
    1. v Allan STEWART b: ABT 03 MAY 1759 in Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Allan is described as "begotten in fornication" in his baptism record in the Callander parish register. Allan is recorded in Stewarts of the South as being a grandson of Allan Stewart in Doune by his natural son (Robert).

    Robert subsequently married 02 JUL AND 03 AUG 1764 in Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland to Elizabeth STEWART b: ABT 1740 in Perthshire, Scotland

    1. Has No Children Haldane STEWART b: ABT 23 FEB 1767 in Dunipace, Stirlingshire, Scotland.  Haldane is described in Stewarts of the South as: "Haldane, [who] died in the East Indies and made a fortune there and left it [to his family]. He left two brothers in a great way there."
    2. Has No Children Patrick STEWART b: ABT 01 FEB 1769 in Dunipace, Stirlingshire, Scotland.  Patrick is not mentioned in Stewarts of the South and is presumed to have died young. However, the author of Stewarts of the South acknowledges that he is unsure of the sons names in this family.
    3. Has No Children Duncan STEWART b: ABT 30 JAN 1771 in Dunipace, Stirlingshire, Scotland.  Duncan is described in Stewarts of the South as a son of Allan Stewart in Doune.
    4. Has No Children Colbert STEWART b: ABT 1773 in Stirling, Scotland.  No baptism record has been found for Colbert Stewart. He is described in Stewarts of the South as: "There is another, the youngest, called Colbert, [who is] with his mother in Callander of Monteith."

The other branch of of the Stewarts of Invernahyle who are recorded in Stewarts of the South is the following family.  They are actually recorded first in Stewarts of the South as "Branch 1" of the Invernahyle Stewarts.  Branch 1 does not imply any precedent in their relationship to the other Invernahyle families whatsoever, but merely means that they were listed first in Stewarts of the South.

This family resided in Upper Duart in Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  We have several sources of information on this family, which, unfortunately frequently conflict.  We have done our best to reconcile these conflicts where possible, while others we have just had to leave as is and leave it to future research to try to sort out what is correct.

Stewarts of the South Stewarts of the South describes this branch as follows:

There was one Duncan McCallain of the family of Invernahavil commonly called Sliochd Dhavil na Noard in Appin of Stewart that came to Glenfinglas in the way of a shepherd or driver with one of the family of Glenbuckie and married there and had three sons and some daughters:

  1. Alexander

    1. (Son)

      1. Alexander's grand child, Duncan, [is] now a gentleman tacksman of Glengaoil [in] Callander parish, rent £550. 

        1. [He] has four sons [who are] all minors.

      2. (Son)

        1. Alexander Stewart, a brother's son of Duncan in the tack, [is] with himself [and] unmarried

  2. (Son)

    1. Grandson

      1. Duncan Stewart, [a] tenant [in] Duart [in] Glenfinglas [in] Callander Parish [on the] Earl of Moray['s property] [is a] great-grandson to Duncan [McCallain].  [He has] the eight part of the tack [and pays] rent £111.2.6, as there is £60 of advance is put on the whole £140 for another farm in Port [of Menteith] parish [in] Perth county, called Duilatur.

        1. One son, [who is a] Buchanan barrack master [in] Fort William

  3. Donald

    1. (Son)

      1. Alexander Stewart, [a] shoemaker in Edinburgh, [is a] grandson of Donald.  [Alexander is] a bachelor.

Stewarts of the South gives the origin of this family as descending from Clan Sliochd Dhavil na Noard in Appin of Stewart  from "Invernahavil".  This is a corruption of Sliochd Dhomhnaill nan Ord from Invernahyle or "Seed of Donald of the Hammer" which was the nickname of Donald Stewart, 2nd of Invernahyle.  Stewarts of the South says the progenitor of this particular branch was "Duncan mac Allan Stewart."  We have been unable to reconcile this Duncan mac Allan Stewart with other Invernahyle sources.  As such, at present, this branch is not shown as descending from anywhere in the Invernahyle tree above.

Mitchell's Monumental Inscriptions shows the following entries for this family in Kilmahog Cemetery:

40         table stone. Share and coulter.  1786.  DS  MS.  By James STEWART, farmer at the Duart of Glenfinglas, died JUL (year illegible), age 77

41         (once enclosed with 40 & 42), pelican plucking its breast, in her nest (crest of the STEWART family).  1809.  James STEWART, 3 SEP 1807, age 63, wife Mary STEWART, 22 NOV 1788, age 35, by sons John and Duncan in Duart.

42         Duncan STEWART, 15 OCT 1819, wife Christian STEWART, 11 JUN 1863, daughter Mary 8 MAY 1853, son James in Duart 18 JUN 1895, age 82.  (Mitchell notes: MacGregor notes “Christian STEWART was aunt to Mrs. Stewart in Milton.”)

The Ardvorlich History refers to this family in reference to the marriage of Mary Stewart, daughter of John Ban Mor Stewart of Auchnahard of the Bains of Glen Finglas family who married James Stewart in Duart and was mother of Duncan Stewart in Duart:

Mary [Stewart], who married James [Stewart in] Duart [whose] grandfather [was] Alastair Dubh nan Damh ("Black Alastair of the Stag"), or "Sandy of the Stirks" ("Alexander of the Black Cattle"), who came to the Glen from Appin, and founded the Duart family, who had a branch known as Mac an Dubh Culloch, ("son of the black boar" or "son of John the boar").  He is said to have been a drover. Their son married Christie, his cousin, and they had a son James, now in Duart, and two daughters.  One married Archie McLaren of Coronach, now at Ardchullerie, and the other, Archibald Buchanan, Calatine, near Doune.

Duncan Stewart, son of James Stewart in Duart, is easily identifiable in the Callander OPR:

Duncan STEWART, in Upper Duart b: ABT 26 FEB 1786 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland (son of James STEWART and Mary STEWART).  Duncan married on 31 JUL 1812 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to his (maternal) cousin Christian STEWART b: ABT 28 FEB 1787 in Auchnahard, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland (daughter of #7 Duncan Stewart, of the Bains of Glenfinglas family in Auchnahard).  They had the following children:

  1. Has No Children James STEWART, in Duart, b: ABT 5 MAY 1813 in Duart, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.
  2. Has No Children Mary STEWART b: ABT 18 MAR 1816 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.
  3. Has No Children John Stewart STEWART b: ABT 1817 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.
  4. Has No Children Annie Stewart STEWART b: ABT 1818 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.
  5. Has No Children Catherine STEWART b: ABT 1819 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland. 

Now come the contradictions and problems:

  1. Stewarts of the South says that Duncan Stewart in Duart had "one son [who is a] Buchanan barrack master [in] Fort William."  Stewarts of the South was written over a period of about 2-3 years ca. 1815.  So at the time of writing it is true that Duncan had only one son, namely James.  His second son, John, was not born until 1817.  However, James was only about two years old when Stewarts of the South was written so he certainly could not have been a barrack master in Fort William!  Even if we consider that perhaps Duncan might have had an earlier son from a previous relationship as yet undiscovered, Duncan was only born in 1786 and could not have had an adult son ca. 1815 by any calculation.

  2. Stewarts of the South says that Duncan Stewart in Duart was a great-grandson of Duncan McCallain Stewart, who is described as a cattle drover from Clan Appin.  The Ardvorlich History (unedited) says "Mary, who married James Duart grandfather Alastair Dubh nan Damh.".  This makes no grammatical sense so some degree of interpretation is required.  We have interpreted this statement to mean: "Mary [Stewart], who married James [Stewart in] Duart [whose] grandfather [was] Alastair Dubh nan Damh."  Alastair is also described as a cattle drover from Clan Appin.  As James was the father of Duncan, then this would make Duncan the great-grandson of Alastair Dubh nan Damh Stewart, not Duncan McCallain Stewart.  There seems to be no reasonable way to suggest that Alastair Dubh nan Damh Stewart and Duncan McCallain Stewart could possibly be the same person.  Thus, either one of the sources must be wrong or there is an error in our interpretation of the sources.  It's likely that James' parents were both Stewarts (as we show below), in which case it is possible that James could be the grandson of both Alastair Dubh nan Damh and Duncan McCallain if one was is paternal grandfather and the other was his maternal grandfather, but this would seem unlikely.

  3. A lesser problem occurs when we try to identify the parents of James Stewart.  According to his gravestone he was born in 1744.  When we look to the Callander OPR we find an excellent match for James' birth: born 1 AUG 1744 and bap 5 AUG 1744 in Duart as the son of Robert Stewart and Mary Stewart.  When we look at grave #40, the entry is incomplete but would appear to be the grave of James' father who died in 1786 at age 77.  These dates would fit well if James was born in 1744, but unfortunately the name of the deceased is unreadable.  However we do find the initials "DS & MS" which we might interpret to be the initials of James' parents.  But our suggestion is that James' parents' initials would be "RS & MS".  These problem is easily resolved when we account for the fact that the gravestone was in such deteriorated condition when viewed by Mitchell (and earlier by MacGregor) that an 'R' could easily be misread as a 'D'.  However, since James' eldest surviving son was named Duncan it's also just as possible that the initials are correct and that James' father's name was Duncan Stewart.

  4. Stewarts of the South says that Duncan Stewart in Duart also had a farm at Dullater.  There is another Duncan Stewart who resided at Dullater about the same time and who fits very closely with the description of Duncan Stewart in Duart as shown in Stewarts of the South but does not fit at all with the descriptions in The Ardvorlich History or in Mitchell's MIs.  This second Duncan is discussed in some detail further below.

What makes these contradictions more intriguing is the note in Duncan Stewart's monumental inscription (above) which says "Christian STEWART was aunt to Mrs. Stewart in Milton."  Christian Stewart's brother Robert Ban Mor Stewart from the Auchnahard family was the mother of Mrs. Stewart in Milton.  Mrs. Stewart in Milton was also the source of the information found in The Ardvorlich History.

Taking into account all of the information and challenges above we present the following accounting of this family as "the most likely accounting based on current evidence" but not confirmed:

Duncan mac Allan Stewart in Duart

vDuncan mac Allan STEWART , in Duart, b. ABT 1680 in Perthshire, Scotland.  According to the Stewarts of the South accounting of this family this person's name was "Duncan McCallain" Stewart or "Duncan, son of Allan". According to The Ardvorlich History his name was Alasdair Dubh nan Damh Stewart or "Black Alexander of the Cattle" who was also called "Sandy of the Stirks" (stirks is a Scots word for black cattle). According to both accounts the head of this family was a cattle drover from Clan Appin who came to Glen Finglas and settled in Duart. According to Stewarts of the South he came "with one of the family of Glenbuckie and married there." In its full context the word "there" is ambiguous in its reference -- it could refer to Glen Finglas or Appin, but most likely refers to Glenbuckie. This could mean that Duncan came to Glen Finglas as a friend of one of the members of the Glenbuckie family and that he married while he was still living in Glenbuckie, or it could mean that he married a daughter of one of the Glenbuckie families, or both.

The accounts given in Stewarts of the South and The Ardvorlich History conflict over the identity of the progenitor of this branch.  It is difficult to evaluate which source is more reliable -- an early 19th century source who was not related to the family but who was conducting a thorough survey of all cadet branches of the Stewarts of Balquhidder, or a late 19th century source who resided in Glen Finglas and was a neighbour and cousin of the descendants of this family.  One is more closely connected in time, but less by relationship; the other is opposite.  As such, the correction presently suggested here to reconcile both accounts is that Alasdair Dubh nan Damh was not the lineal male ancestor of James Stewart in Duart is claimed in The Ardvorlich History, but was an earlier uncle, and was the eldest son of Duncan mac Allan Stewart.  As the eldest son of Duncan, Aladair Dubh nan Damh would have been the head of the family and "chieftain" of this branch.  As such, it is conceivable that he could have been incorrectly recalled four generations later by a neighbouring distant cousin as being the direct ancestor of James Stewart in Duart.

As Clan Appin were not among the families who shared in the division of Glen Finglas, yet a descendant of this branch in 1815 held one of the eight portions of Glen Finglas then this family either purchased or otherwise acquired one of the eight portions, possibly by marriage. Given the previous reference from Stewarts of the South it seems most likely that Alexander/Duncan married one of the daughters of Glenbuckie and acquired the Glenbuckie share of Duart by marriage.  Alexander/Duncan is recorded in Stewarts of the South as being the father of:

  1. vHas Children Alexander "Alasdair Dubh nan Damh" STEWART b: ABT 1705 in Duart, Glen Finglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to Stewarts of the South, Alexander was the eldest son of Duncan mac Allan Stewart of Duart. This accounting is contradicted by The Ardvorlich History. Stewarts of the South says that Alexander was the grandfather of Duncan Stewart in Glengaoil. We now propose that this is "Alasdair Dubh nan Damh/Sand of the Stirks" and that Mrs Stewart of Milton made a mistake in saying that he was grandfather to James Stewart in Duart, but rather he was granduncle.)  Alexander was the father of:
    1. vHas Children Son STEWART b: ABT 1735 in Perthshire, Scotland. This person is not identified by name in Stewarts of the South which makes it likely that he was dead by the time of writing, ca. 1815.  He is shown as the father of:
      1. v Duncan STEWART , of Glengyle b: ABT 1770 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Duncan is described in Stewarts of the South as: "Alexander's grand child, Duncan, [is] now a gentleman tacksman of Glengaoil [in] Callander parish, rent £550. [He] has four sons [who are] all minors."
      2. vHas Children Son STEWART b: ABT 1775 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  This son is not identified by name in Stewarts of the South thus it is likely that he was probably dead by the time of writing (ca. 1815).  He was father of:
        1. v Alexander STEWART b: ABT 1795 in Perthshire, Scotland.  Alexander is described in Stewarts of the South as "Alexander Stewart, a brother's son of Duncan in the tack, [is] with himself [and] unmarried." This is a reference to his uncle, Duncan Stewart, tacksman of Glengyle.
  2. vHas Children Robert STEWART , in Duart b: 1709 in Duart, Glen Finglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Robert is believed to be the head of the only branch of this family that continued in Glen Finglas.  His descendants are presented below.
  3. vHas Children Donald STEWART b: ABT 1712 in Duart, Glen Finglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland. Donald is described in Stewarts of the South as being the youngest of the three sons of Duncan mac Allan Stewart in Duart. The Ardvorlich History accounting contradicts this.  He was father of:
    1. vHas Children Son STEWART b: ABT 1740 in Perthshire, Scotland.  This son is not identified by name in Stewarts of the South and thus is presumed to have died prior to the time of writing in 1815.  He was father of:
      1. Has No Children Alexander STEWART b: ABT 1770 in Perthshire, Scotland.  Alexander is described in Stewarts of the South as: "Alexander Stewart, [a] shoemaker in Edinburgh, [is a] grandson of Donald. [Alexander is] a bachelor."

Robert Stewart in Duart

vHas Children Robert STEWART , in Duart b: 1709 in Duart, Glen Finglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland, shown above as the son of Alexander/Duncan Stewart in Duart.  No birth record has been found for Robert. According to Stewarts of the South Robert was the second of three sons of Duncan mac Allan Stewart, However The Ardvorlich History says that Robert was the son of Alasdair Dubh nan Damh Stewart, also known as "Sandy of the Stirks". Robert is also believed to be the deceased person recorded in the following entry from Kilmhog cemetery found in Mitchell's Monumental Inscriptions: "40 table stone. Share and coulter.  1786.  DS  MS.  By James STEWART, farmer at the Duart of Glenfinglas, died JUL (year illegible), age 77." Mitchell notes that the stone was difficult to read. It is believed that the "DS" may be a transcription error for RS and thus the initials may stand for "Robert Stewart and Mary Stewart" who are believed to be the parents of James Stewart in Duart who placed the stone.

It is also worth noting that James and Mary stopped having children abruptly in 1745. Another possibility is that James died in the Rising in 1745 and that his widow Mary is the one who died in 1786.  Robert married on 15 JUL 1738 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Mary STEWART b: ABT 1710 in Perthshire, Scotland.  Her birth family has not been identified.  They had the following children:

  1. v Alexander or Duncan STEWART b: ABT 1739 in Duart, Glen Finglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  There is no evidence of this person. He is suggested by onomastics only and by the gap from marriage to the birth of their first recorded child. It is suggested that he died young.
  2. v Catharine STEWART b: 19 MAY 1742 in Duart, Glen Finglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
  3. vHas Children James STEWART , in Duart b: 1 AUG 1744 in Duart, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  The Ardvorlich History refers to James and his wife, rather confusingly, as follows: "Mary, who married James Duart's grandfather, Alastair Dubh nan Damh ("Black Alexander of the Stag"), or "Sandy of the Stirks" ("Sandy of the Black Cattle"), who came to the Glen from Appin, and founded the Duart family. He is said to have been a drover. Their son (Duncan Stewart) married Christie, his cousin, and they had a son James, now in Duart, and two daughters. One (Margaret Stewart) married Archie McLaren of Coronach, now at Ardchullerie, and the other (Catherine), Archibald Buchanan, Calatine (Calentowie), near Doune." The preceding reference is confusing in its grammar, in that Mary married James Stewart of Duart, whose grandfather was Alastair Dubh nan Damh. She did not marry Alastair, the grandfather of James Duart.

    James is accounted for in the contemporary Buchanan of Auchmar Genealogy and confirmed as "James Stewart".  James is listed in Mitchell's Monumental Inscriptions in Kilmahog cemetery: 41 (once enclosed with 40 & 42), pelican plucking its breast, in her nest (crest of the STEWART family).  1809.  James STEWART, 3 SEP 1807, age 63, wife Mary STEWART, 22 NOV 1788, age 35, by sons John and Duncan in Duart.  James married on 19 DEC 1774 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Mary STEWART b: 20 FEB 1754 in Auchnahard, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland, daughter of John Ban Mor Stewart, 3rd in Auchnahard (shown above under the Bains of Glenfinglas in Auchnahard).  James and Mary had the following family:

    1. v Robert STEWART b: ABT 1775 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Robert's existence is suggested by onomastics only. There is no documentary evidence to suggest that he existed at all. If he existed then it is suggested that he died young.
    2. v John STEWART b: 8 APR 1776 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  The Ardvorlich History states that John was alive at the time of his brother's death in 1819.
    3. v Anne STEWART b: ABT 1777 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
    4. v Margaret STEWART b: ABT 9 OCT 1779 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Margaret married on 30 JUL 1802 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Archibald MCLAREN , in Coronach & Ardchullery b: 19 FEB 1767 in Cornich, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland, son of Dougall McLaren and Isabell Stewart (Isabell is believed to be from Branch 5 of Glenbuckie - Sliochd Walter nan Cliugh, shown above).
      1. Dougald MCLAREN, m Janet "Jessie Dullater" STEWART, dtr of Duncan Stewart & Mary McKinlay in Auchnahard (of the Bains) -- This would strengthen the connection between Duncan in Duart and Dullater.
    5. v Catherine STEWART b: 1782 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Catherine is not found in public records but is listed in the Buchanan of Auchmar genealogy.
    6. vHas Children Duncan STEWART , in Duart b: ABT 26 FEB 1786 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Duncan is described in Stewarts of the South as:"Duncan Stewart, [a] tenant [in] Duart [in] Glenfinglas [in] Callander Parish [on the] Earl of Moray['s property] [is a] great-grandson to Duncan [McCallain]. [He has] the eight part of the tack [and pays] rent £111.2.6, as there is £60 of advance is put on the whole £140 for another farm in Port [of Menteith] parish [in] Perth county, called Duilatur. One son, [who is a] Buchanan barrack master [in] Fort William." However, Duncan was not old enough to have a son who was a barrack master. Stewarts of the South is contradicted by The Ardvorlich History which says that Duncan was the great-grandson of Alastair Dubh nan Damh Stewart. These contradictions have not been reconciled. Duncan is also described in the Appendix of Stewarts of the South as: "Mr Duncan Stewart [Duart in Glenfinglas], of the Invernahyle family or Domhnul nan ord ("Donald of the Hammer"). A second cousin to the Glengyle tenant. £105. Keen, shrewd, sly and sensible."

      Duncan is found in Mitchell's Monumental Inscriptions in Kilmahog Cemetery buried next his father and one of his grandparents; "42  Duncan STEWART, 15 OCT 1819, wife Christian STEWART, 11 JUN 1863, daughter Mary 8 MAY 1853, son James in Duart 18 JUN 1895, age 82.  (Mitchell notes: MacGregor notes “Christian STEWART was aunt to Mrs. Stewart in Milton.”)"

      In 1851 Duncan's widow and her two sons are residing in Duart with Robert Stewart b 1816 in Balquhidder and Marjory Stewart, b 1833 in Balquhidder who are both employed as servants on Duncan's widow's farm.

      Duncan married on 31 JUL 1812 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to his maternal cousin Christian STEWART b: ABT 28 FEB 1787 in Auchnahard, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland, daughter of Duncan Stewart in Auchnahard and Mary McKinlay, shown above. According to Mrs Stewart of Milton's account, James married Christian Stewart, sister of Rob Ban Mor Stewart in Auchnahard.  However, this is an error as it was James' father, Duncan, who married Christian Stewart.  Duncan and Christian had the following children:

      1. v James STEWART , in Duart b: 27 APR 1813 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  James Stewart was the last of all the Stewarts to reside in Glenfinglas.  His extensive obituary is shown below. 
      2. v Mary STEWART b: 13 MAR 1816 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  The Ardvorlich History records that "she never married nor had children, and died in middle age."  Mitchell shows her death in 1853.
      3. v John Stewart STEWART b: ABT 1817 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
      4. v Annie Stewart STEWART b: ABT 1818 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland
      5. v Catherine STEWART b: ABT 1819 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to The Ardvorlich History, Catharine married Archibald Buchanan in Coilentowie, however this Catharine' has been confused with her aunt Catharine Stewart who married in 1802 to Archibald Buchanan in Coilentowie.
    7. v Catherine STEWART b: ABT 15 SEP 1788 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  Catharine married on 30 JUL 1802 in Callander, Perthshire, Scotland to Archibald BUCHANAN , In Calentowie b: ABT 1780 in Calantowie, Kilmadock, Perthshire, Scotland.  Catherine and Archie had 4 children who are accounted for in Malcolm Gray's notes.

vJames Stewart in Duart - "The Last Stewart in Glen Finglas"

v James STEWART , in Duart b: 27 APR 1813 in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  James Stewart was the last of all the Stewarts to reside in Glenfinglas. His extensive obituary is shown further below. It provides not only a wonderful portrait of James' life, but also a fascinating look at life in Glen Finglas. James left the following will:

On Friday last, in the romantic churchyard of Kilmahog, near the Pass of Leny, the grave closed over the mortal remains of Mr. James Stewart, Duart House, Callander, whose death, which will be heard of with regret by a large number of friends and acquaintances over the whole country, requires more than a passing notice, not only on account of his own marked individuality, but because of his long connection with an interesting part of Perthshire, and of a mode of farming which, although once quite common, is now fast dying out of the country. He was the last of the old “sept” of Stewarts who, almost from time immemorial, tenanted, under Earls of Moray, the extensive grazing farm of Glenfinglass, near the Trossachs, and was probably, as he used himself to boast, a tenant farmer for a longer period than any other man in Scotland, he having on his father’s death, seventy-six years ago, succeeded to his share of the holding when he was only six years of age. Glenfinglass was the last, or one of the last, holdings in West Perthshire which was worked on the ancient village community system, a system which had its rise and growth in, and has been perpetuated from, remote antiquity; and, would space allow, a detailed account of the mode of its management and its primitive customs would form an exceedingly interesting article. A very few particulars regarding same may not be inappropriate here. Glenfinglass was held jointly by six tenants---all Stewarts of course---each of them having his own farmhouse and steading, with a separate allotment of arable ground, on which he grazed his own cows and raised his own crops; while the hill pasture , the most important part of the holding, was held by the whole six in common, the stock of sheep thereon, numbering 8000 or more, being mutual property. Two of the tenants were annually elected managers to attend to the sales of sheep and the buying in of fresh breeding stock for the year; and while it might have been supposed that disagreements would have occurred occasionally, this was not the case, for the system had, through generations of practice, been brought to perfection, and the utmost harmony and good-fellowship prevailed among the tenants from the earliest recorded time. When any question arose as to which tenant was to do any particular piece of work for the general good, or on any other point, the matter was invariably settled, and satisfactorily, by “casting lots.” For a period of certainly more than two hundred years this little colony, or community, of Stewarts quietly pursued the even tenor of their ways----a shrewd, industrious, exemplary set of people, little troubled with the tumults and ongoings in the outside world. The “risings” of 1715 and 1745 passed by without affecting them in any way, as, true and staunch to their chief and landlord, the Earl of Moray, they obeyed his wishes and took no part in these events. The only recorded outstanding event which seems to have agitated the tenants of the glen to any extent was when, about the year 1770, the then Dowager Countess of Moray tried to evict them from their holding on the ground that a new lease agreed to be granted to them by her husband, Earl James, two years before his death, had never been signed by him, and, farther, that he had no right to grant that lease, as the life-rent of the glen had been conveyed to her in her marriage contract in security of her jointure. The Court of Session decided in favour of the Countess, and loud were the lamentations of the Stewarts at having to leave the land they and their forebears had occupied so long. Fortunately, however, they found a friend in the new Earl (Francis, eighth Earl), between whom and the Dowager, his stepmother, there seems to have been little love lost. He advised them to appeal their case to the House of Lords, and found them part, if not the whole , of the means to do so; and the result was that on 24th March 1773 their appeal was sustained, and the decision of the Court of Session reversed. With one exception, the Stewarts were all adherents of the Established Church, although in the early part of last century all the inhabitants of Glenfinglass were Episcopalian; and they were, without exception, Conservative in politics.

In consequence of the deaths of three of the last generation of tenants, all at very advanced ages, only three of them were left latterly---viz. James, Charles, and John; and their last lease expiring at Whitsunday 1891, they resolved, notwithstanding the earnest wish of the late Earl of Moray to the contrary, to quit the glen. This resolution they carried out, to the universal regret of the country- side. The facts are suggestive, as showing the very different aspect sheep farming has now from what it had ten or twelve years ago, that then Messrs Stewart paid [pounds] 1040 of rent for the farm; and that now their successors pay as rent only [pounds] 566, besides having got large sums expended by the landlord on the farm in new fences, buildings, and other improvements; but this is by no means an isolated instance of such large reductions in hill farm rents in West Perthshire.

On the Messrs Stewart’s retirement from Glenfinglas, two of them went to reside in Callander, and one of them went to reside in Strathyre. By a strange fatality, the whole three have died since the beginning of the present year, within about five months of each other. Charles died on 8th January at the age of 70; John died on 5th May at the age of 77; and James died on 18th June current at the age of 82. The whole three were widely known and respected for their sterling integrity, straightforward ways, kind-heartedness, and open hospitality. Of the three, however, James, generally known as “Duart” from the name of his farmhouse, had the most outstanding individuality. He was a notable man, not only throughout his own district, but to many from all parts of the country who have made their holiday at the Trossachs. Handsome in figure, courteous and genial in manner, keen of eye, vigorous of speech, he never failed to attract the interest of all who made his acquaintance. His mind was full to overflowing of old-world reminiscences, and his remarkably retentive memory bringing to the fore not only what he himself had seen during his long life, but also of what he had heard from his forbears, made his conversation deeply interesting to everyone caring for the traditions, old customs, and history of the Highlands. He was never married. He was an elder in Trossachs Church; and to show how much he had the Church of Scotland at heart, it may be mentioned that under his will he has bequeathed [pounds] 2000 to its schemes, viz.:---To the Foreign Mission Scheme, [pounds] 200; to the Home Mission Scheme, [pounds] 600; to the Endowment of Chapels of Ease Scheme [pounds] 600; to the Small Livings Scheme, [pounds] 150; to the Aged and Infirm Ministers Fund, [pounds] 150; and to the Highlands and Islands Scheme, [pounds] 900; He has also bequeathed [pounds] 1000 to the managers of the Trossachs Church for the supplement of the minister’s stipend; also [pounds] 1200 for the establishment of a bursary to be called “The James Stewart Duart Bursary” to be conferred on one young man of merit, a native of the parishes of Callander or Trossachs, to be tenable for three years, to enable the holder to attend the Arts classes in any of the Scottish Universities with the view of his taking the degree of Master of Arts.

The appendix to Stewarts of the South lists the following (and only the following) persons alive at the time of writing (ca. 1820) who were of this family:

  1. Mr Duncan Stewart, Tacksman of Glengyle, of the family of Invernahyle in Appin or "Domhul nan ord" ("Donald of the Hammer"), a good character, £550. (Callander)

  2. Mr Duncan Stewart [Duart in Glenfinglas], of the Invernahyle family or Domhnul nan ord ("Donald of the Hammer"). A second cousin to the Glengyle tenant. £105. Keen, shrewd, sly and sensible. (Callander)

In 1851 James Stewart in Duart and his widowed mother are residing in Duart with Robert Stewart b 1816 in Balquhidder and Marjory Stewart, b 1833 in Balquhidder who are both employed as servants on Duncan's widow's farm. No relation is indicated but in the event that they might be related then possible births include:

  1. Robert STEWART, bap 28 MAR 1814 in Ruinacraig, s/o Duncan STEWART and Margaret MCGREGOR
  2. Robert STEWART, bap 3 APR 1813 in Village of Strathyre, s/o Alexander STEWART and Catharine STEWART
  3. Robert STEWART, bap 3 FEB 1813 in Immeriach, s/o Alexander STEWART and Katrine STEWART
  4. Robert STEWART, bap 15 SEP 1819 in Stronslanie, s/o John STEWART and Margaret STEWART
  5. Marjory STEWART, bap 19 APR 1832 in Immervuline, dtr of Peter STEWART and Jean MCGREGOR

The "Other" Duncan Stewart in Duart

The following family presents a confound to our study of the Stewarts in Duart.  The following Duncan Stewart had a son, James D. Stewart, who, according to family tradition, was born in "Little Dullater".  There are two Dullaters on the south shore of Loch Venacher: Easter and Wester Dullater.  It's not know which of this was "Little" Dullater.  There are only two mentions of Dullater in Stewarts of the South: Janet "Jessie" Stewart daughter of Duncan Stewart in Auchnahard of the Bains of Glen Finglas, and Duncan Stewart in Duart who also owned Dullater.

Could the following Duncan Stewart actually be the Duncan Stewart in Duart mentioned in Stewarts of the South, instead of the one above?  It's entirely possible.  He's the right age and he had a son old enough to be a barrack master which fits with Stewarts of the South better than the Duncan Stewart above.  However this Duncan does not fit with any of the other evidence above.

The fact that this Duncan's early children were born in Ardcheanochdan may indicate he was associated with the Ardcheanochdan family.  At present we cannot be sure where he fits.  And the possibility exists that the accounting above is incorrect and that the following Duncan Stewart is actually Duncan Stewart in Duart of the Invernahyle in Appin family.

Duncan STEWART, in Dullater, b: ABT 1770 probably in Duart, Glenfinglas, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.  According to the family bible, Duncan married Agnes MCGREGOR, although no record of this marriage has been found.  The IGI shows three children for this family, as shown below.

  1. Alexander STEWART, born 2 NOV 1799 in Ardcheanochdan, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.

  2. Mary STEWART, bap. 12 FEB 1806 in Ardcheanochdan, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland.

  3. James D. STEWART, b: 2 MAY 1807 in Little Dullater, Callander, Perthshire, Scotland and baptized 4 JUN 1807 in Port of Menteith Parish, Perthshire, Scotland.  He immigrated to Canada -- first to Quebec, but he later settled in Harriston, Wellington County, Ontario.  His story is continued on the Stewarts in Harriston, Ontario, Canada page.

  4. Duncan STEWART, bap. 10 JUL 1814 in Kincardine by Doune parish (may be from a different family)

  5. Peter STEWART, bap. 25 SEP 1815 in Kincardine by Doune parish (may be from a different family)

Legend

Has Children = This person has known descendants.

v= This person has a connection to the Stewarts of Balquhidder, whether marital, geographic, or otherwise..

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.
