The following lengthy excerpt is from Major John Stewart's book on the History of the Ardvorlich Stewarts (date uncertain).  This book was not published publicly, but only privately.  A copy exists with the Stewart Society and another with the Public Library in Edinburgh.  The remaining copies are believed to be only within the family.  We have been fortunate to receive some photocopies of pages from the Stewart Society, but we would be very blessed by an opportunity to view the entire work.  Hopefully that opportunity will come in the future.  The following excerpt is from the chapter on the Glenfinglas Stewarts, originally transcribed for us by Malcolm Gray and Ryk Brown, with edits and commentary by Ryk Brown.  Commentaries are presented in square brackets.  Emphases added.

A History of the Stewarts in Glenfinglas


Tradition has given them an origin in the Stewarts of Ardvorlich, but it is much more likely that they sprang from the Stewarts of Baldorran many decades before there were Stewarts at Ardvorlicn. William of Baldorran and Walter his son were tenants of the Crown in the lands of DUCHRAA ESTIR and WESTIR alias INNERQUHAWAWANE and GLENMANN, and BLAIRBAITH, as set forth in the Exchequer Rolls of Scotland of 1502-1507 and 1508-1515 (see appendix No.VIII part I). These lands form part of Glen Finglas. The Forest of Glen Finglas was a royal forest and its Keeper Archibald Edmonston. An entry under 1539-40 records that `The King and Queen passed from STRIUELING to GLENARKNAY` `to the hunting of GLENFYNLAWIS`, and under 1538 Sept. `Item, gevin to Duncane Campbell of Drumfad, for ane horfs of his that was flane turfland ye Kingis Vennesoune out of Glenfinlass at ye Kingis grace command and precept`.

Evidently at some date the Edmonstons were deprived of the office of Forester of Glen Finglas, for in 1580 Duncan, a son of Black Alexander Stewart of Glen Buckie, was Forester Depute of the forest under John Stewart, Constable of Doune, the Chief Forester. Apparently there had been great jealousy over the stewardship of Menteith and Strathgartney, and the forestership of Glen Finglas, for when the Edmonstons were deprived of these offices which were given to Sir James Stewart of Beith, the Edmonstons took their revenge by murdering Sir James in 1547. This Sir James Stewart's grandson married the daughter of the Regent Moray and on his father-in-law's death by Huntly in 1592. Probably the lands of STRATHGARTNEY came to James Stewart, son of Sir James Stewart of Beith with the Barony of Doune in 1565

The first person of the name of Stewart actually settled in Glenfinglas, was James Stewart in Glen, who is mentioned in 1575 in the special Retour of James Stewart of BALDOFRAN in the lands of EMYRCRETHAN and CROFTINTARRAY, fully set forth in Appendix IX of Part 1 of this history.  Actually there is mention of Robert Stewart in BLAIRGARRY in the Exchequer Rolls of 1502-7: BLAIRGARRY though not in Glen Finglas is adjacent to it.

The first member of the Ardvorlich family known to have settled in the Glen was Duncan Stewart, third son of Alexander first of Ardvorlich: he appears as Duncan MCALLESTER Stewart in MEGLENFINLAS in 1594 [this is chronologically impossible, see notes on Ardvorlich Page], when he took part with his father in the Drymen Raid given in detail at Appendix XII of part 1 of this history. According to tradition he became leader of the Glen Finglas tribe of Stewart's, and ancestor of many families there

From that time onwards names of Stewarts become numerous particularly in the Commissariat Records of Dunblane where the following occur:-


1663- John in Glenfinglas
1668- Alexander, son to Umquhile (former) John Stewart in Glenfinglas
1670- William in Glenfinglas
1672- Donald in Glenfinglas
1675- Andrew in Glenfinlayglass
1675- Duncan in Glenfinglas

1709- Alexander, tacksman of eighth part of Glenfinglas
1763- David, sometime in Brainchyle thereafter in Glenfinglass
1793- John, tenant in Achnahard of Glenfinglas

GRODLICH [Grodich]

1665- Agnes, spouse to Patrick Stewart in Gredich in Glenfinglas - par[ish] of Callander


1666- Duncan in Duvard* of Glenfinglas, spouse Janet Stewart

1757- Catherine in Duart of Glenfinglas, spouse to Robert Stewart

In addition to those listed actually living in the Glen there are the following who lived in the near neighbourhood

* This reference to "Duvard" reveals and confirms the etymology of Duart deriving from Dubh Ard.  As the bh is often pronounced as a 'v' but in 'dubh' is usually silent.


1735- Andrew in Cullintogle


1604- John in middle Callantwis


1673- Walter in Blairgarrie and Margaret MacGregor

Duncan McAllester Stewart was the first Ardvorlich to settle in the Glen, but in 1700 David Stewart, son of James Stewart 4th Ardvorlich settled here. His exploits are described in Chapter V part 1.

The Ardvorlich MSS book contains an account of the origins of the Glenfinglas Stewarts which was taken verbatim from the narration of one of that clan:

There was a "John or twa" after the family first settled in the Glen, when Ardvorlich first conquered "Donoch Our".  Then came John Bhuie.

John Bhuie in the Glen
Wha snuffed baith snuff and pen

He was father of James, whose son, John Bhan, married Mary Buchanan of the Offrans.  He was famous for a plea with Old Lord Moray "in which a' the lawyers in Edinburgh were employed".  It was about unpaid rent which John Bhan said had been gifted to him by the late Earl.

John Bhan's children were:

  1. James, who married Margaret Stewart, the sister of Donald Stewart in Lendrick.  Their son was Alastiar Mhor who married Christie Stewart, Auch's sister (Auch is in Glenorchy, Argyll, just west of Strathgartney), and had the following children: (whose names are chopped off the bottom of the photocopy).

  2. John, who married Christie Stewart of the Ardveich family.  She was grandaunt of the Minister of Killin.  Her brother was Donald Stewart of Kichp, who was grandfather to the Minister.  After John's death, Christie married again to a Stewart of Coirchrombie.  John's son was John of the Grodich, who lived to the age of 100 and died in 1876.

    1. John of the Grodich married Mary, a daughter of Duncan Stewart, son of John Bhan Stewart (#5 below).  This John married a Caleb sister of Mrs. Charles Stewart and Mrs. Stewart of Laggan.  They have a son and daughter.
      (The reference here is unclear.  John of the Grodich had a son also named John, and also in Grodich, who married Margaret Stewart, who is described as "a Caleb".)

  3. Alexander (born 1745) was a merchant in Glasgow, and married Janet Wilson of that place.  They had three daughters of whom Margaret and Janet died unmarried.  The third, Mary, married Dr. Clelland and left three sons all of whom died young and a daughter who married Dr. Ritchie.  This Dr. Clelland's first wife was a Rodger; she was the mother of old Mrs. Burns, the mother of John and James C. Burns, the shipowners.

  4. Robert, who married Janet McKinlay of the Anie, and had 12 children:

    1. John of the Milton, who married a McDonald and had two sons:

      1. John, now of the Milton, who married his second cousin Drunkie's daughter and had a large family,

      2. Duncan, the banker, who also has a family

    2. Mary, who married R. Buchanan of Kilchat, and had two sons:

      1. James, a factor to Lord Gwdyr at Ipswich, and

      2. Robert at Kilchat.

      3. She also had a daughter, Margaret, who married McKinlay from Inverhaggernie.  They went to America and left a son, James, now in New Zealand.

    3. Catherine

    4. Duncan, who died at age 19.

    5. Alexander, known as "Sandy Rob".

    6. Janet

Robert married secondly and had a daughter, Mary, who married Peter Coilintogle.

  1. Duncan, who married Mary McKinlay, a cousin of his brother Robert's wife.  Their children were:

    1. Peter Coilantogle, who married Betsy Stewart, his cousin.  They had one daughter.

    2. Jessie Dullater, who had no family.

    3. Christie, who married Duncan Stewart, father of James Stewart, Duart.

    4. Margaret, Mrs. White, who had a son, William.

    5. Robert, a farmer at Drunkie, who married Monachyle's sister, and had one daughter who married Duncan, now in Monachyle, another married John Stewart of the Milton.

    6. John, who died unmarried.

    7. Sandy, now in Glen (Glenfinglas).

    By his second wife, Duncan had a daughter, Mary, who married John Stewart of the Grodich (above).

  2. Mary, 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 (see SOS Section IV: Miscellany - Appin Family, who had a branch known as Mac an Dubh Culloch, "son of the black boar" or Mac Iain Dubh).  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.

It will be noted that where in the above account the words "now of" are used, this refers to 1850-1860.

About 1950, Miss Margaret Stewart of Milton lent me [John Stewart of Ardvorlich] a Family Tree of the Buchanans of Offrance, which included the lineages of most of the Glenfinglas Stewarts for the last 150 years.  I took a copy of those parts which concerned the Stewarts.

Allan Breck Stewart was a frequent visitor to the Glen on his clandestine visits to Scotland after the '45.  His name is mentioned in this connection in the Trial of James Stewart of the Glen.

The Stewarts of Glenfinglas looked upon Ardvorlich as their chief and captain, and reckoned that Ardvorlich had been responsible for their having settled in the Glen.  Even as late as 1860, when one of the family visited them, he was welcomed as their chief.  This was Colonel Robert Stewart (11th) of Ardvorlich.  He must have been there just before practically the whole tribe emigrated to Canada and settled in Ontario.  From early times they had been tenants of the Earl of Moray, through they never looked upon the Earl as their chief; it was as tenants of the Earl that they finally left the Glen.  So far as I know the Stewarts of Milton were the last of the old stock to live and farm in Strathgartnay and Miss Margaret Stewart who lent me the Buchanan Tree was the last of the Milton Stock: she had a house in Callander.



[The following section lists Major Stewart's reference notes for the Glenfinglas Stewarts, however it is not clear from the notes that we have received exactly what most of these refer to.  Some of them we can figure out from context or other references, but most we don't know what they refer to.  Some are marriage records, some are death records, others are uncertain.]

1592 Duncan M'Alister Stewart in McGlenfinglas Vol. 1. p.135


Elsewhere referred to as Duncan M'Alister in Meglenfinglis.  (See introduction for an explanation of the prefix of "Mc" or "Me".)  This reference appears to be to the Drymen Raid by Alexander Stewart, 1st of Ardvorlich, in which he was accompanied by "Duncan M'Alister Stewart in Glenfinglas".  The author (and many others) has presumed that this Duncan was the son of Alexander of Ardvorlich.  However, we have now shown this to be chronologically impossible.  James Beag Stewart, 2nd of Ardvorlich, was born in 1589.  His birth is known with some precision because he was born immediately following the murder of John Drummond of Drummonderinoch, for which trial documents survive.  Thus if the eldest son of Alexander Stewart, 1st of Ardvorlich, was born in 1589, it would be chronologically impossible for his youngest son, Duncan, to accompany him on a cattle raid in 1592 (or 1595 as elsewhere recorded).  Thus, the Duncan in question could not be the son of Alexander of Ardvorlich.  It is therefore suggested that he was most likely Duncan, not yet 5th of Glenbuckie, son of Alexander, 3rd of Glenbuckie, who was, at the time, Deputy Royal Forrester in Glenfinglas. Or Duncan M'Alister could be a son of Alexander of the Appin Stewarts in Glenfinglas. The former is presently preferred.
