Notes 1 - He was married three times, and left several sons. [ http://www.stewartsociety.org/lines.htm ]

2 - Sir Ninian, who was born in 1469 and succeeded his father as Sheriff of Bute; he was made Castellan of Rothesay by King James IV Stewart.

3 - In the early 16th century Rothesay Castle was strengthened again. Construction of a gatehouse keep, extending from the north of the curtain wall, began around the turn of the century, to provide more modern accommodation for James IV . The curtain wall itself was raised up to ten metres in height, the works continuing into the reign of James V . In 1527 the castle withstood another siege by the Master of Ruthven , which destroyed much of the burgh of Rothesay. The forework is an L-plan structure, which jutted into the moat and was accessed by a drawbridge. The lower floor comprised a vaulted entrance tunnel running into the older castle courtyard. Above, the four storey tower contained royal lodgings, and still bears the royal coat of arms above the door. Also in the early 16th century, a chapel was constructed inside the old castle. Simple in form, the chapel measured around 6m by 9m, and is now the only surviving structure within the curtain wall. The north-west tower was converted into a doocot, and is known as the "Pigeon Tower", due to the nest boxes built into the outside wall. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rothesay_Castle

Ninian Stewart (Sheriff of Bute and Aran) Surname: Stewart Given Name: Ninian Suffix: (Sheriff of Bute and Aran) Sex: M Birth: ABT 1476 in Ardmaleish, Isle of Bute, Scotland Death: ABT 1539 in Rothesay Castle, Isle of Bute, Scotland _UID: 7C368A70C7A5D71199C8E0C3EE078F0189CB Note:

   Ninian Stewart of Ardmaleish held the office of Sheriff of Arran. He held the office of Sheriff of Bute. On 28 May 1490 he was retoured heir to Ardmaleish, Greenan, Mill of Kilcattan and Corrigillis estates. He held the office of Hereditary Captain and Keeper of Rothesay Castle in 1498.
   A great, great grandson of the Black Stewart, Ninian succeeded to the office of Sheriff of Bute after the death of his brother, James in 1490. During the 1490s King James IV attempted to subdue the powerful magnate, the Lord of the Isles, and to achieve this it was essential that strongholds on Scotland?s western seaboard remained loyal to the Crown. Consequently, on 5 August 1498, the trusted Ninian became Castellan of Rothesay, Hereditary Captain and Keeper of Rothesay Castle, a title still in the possession of his family to this day.
