About Robert Stewart in Glenbeich and Ardveich

Name: Robert STEWART in Glenbeich and Ardveich Sex: M Birth: ABT 1678 in Dalveich, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland Death: UNKNOWN Note:

   It is known that John Dubh Mhor had eight sons. Robert's name is not known for sure but is suggested from evidence in the following letter: "1713 - Alex Stewart, London, wants brother Robert Stewart, in Glenbeach (Glenbeich) to send him money." He is presumed to be the Robert Steuart who entered into a contract of wadset for the lands of Ardveich with James Drummond, Earl of Perth, on 4 January, 1733 (source: MacGregor) as no other favourable Robert Stewart has been identified. It is known that John Dubh Mhor lived to over 100 years of age. The date of the preceding sasine suggests that John likely died just prior to 4 JAN 1733 and this is the record of his son securing his inheritance. We have no confirmation that these references apply to the same Robert, nor that they apply to a son of John Dubh Mhor Stewart. It is possible that these references could be to a grandson of John. However the current accounting seems to be the most likely arrangement.
   According to The Ardvorlich History, Lines 5 & 6 of the Dalveich Stewarts are sibling lines, however their exact relationship is uncertain. The Ardvorlich History claims that Alexander Stewart of Line 6 is the older brother of James Ross Stewart of Line 5, however Stewarts of the South presents Line 5 as preceding Line 6 thus suggesting that Alexander was the younger brother, apparently contradicting The Ardvorlich History. Neither of these sources are 100% reliable when it comes to birth order and precedence. Current research would appear to favour that Alexander was younger than James. Their father's name is not known for certain. He was probably one of the middle sons of John Dubh Mhor Stewart of Dalveich. Present accounting would favour that this line descends from Robert Stewart.
