Birth of daughter Mary Ann Stewart


Excerpt from Kanssen Family Notes

Transcribed from handwritten document (1927) by Mike Kanssen. (Thankyou Mike.) He says that the notes were written for his mother when she was born, probably by Irene Frances de Carteret Ollard (1887-1958).

The three Tigers heads alluded to are the Runciman arms ..

The Runcimans are a very old Scotch [sic] family tracing their descent to the Stewarts. The family Estate of Ardvorlich was confiscated by the crown after the rebellion of 1745, when Col. Stewart & his brother - the father of Mrs William Runciman - fought for Prince Charles Edward (Bonnie Prince Charlie). Col. Stewart commanded the Duke of Perth's Regiment.

They were also connected by marriage - through the Earl of Traquair - with the Nithsdales (Lady Katherine Barbara Stewart marrying her cousin the Earl of Nithsdale) It was this lady who gave the 'China bowl' (now in the possession of the Rev S R G Murray) as a christening gift to Mrs Jane Stewart for her daughter 'Katherine Barbara' who subsequently became Mrs William Runciman of Birchmore Bedfordshire.
This Family is now extinct in the male line.

This section of the notes is written a number of years and generations after the events. Stories are passed from generation to generation and sometimes details are altered in the telling. However the 'China bowl' (and the family coat-of-arms) was at the time of writing in the possession of a member of the family (the Reverend Samual Reginald Glanville Murray, 1869-1947. See Thomas William Glanvill's page).


Mary Ann Stewart's grand-daughter, Emily Stewart Drewry (1848-1933) in an interview with a journalist confirms the Stewart ancestry:

"On her father's side she is descended from the Scottish Stewarts, and has an ancestor who fell fighting for Prince Edward Charles at 'Drummossie Muir'"

Drummossie Muir is the Battle of Culloden in 1745.

The 'ancestor' who fell is not Emily's great-grandfather, as her grandmother, Mary Ann, is born around 20 years after Culloden.
Perhaps the ancestor who died in the battle is Mary Ann's grandfather (i.e. Emily's g-g-grandfather. Perhaps it is another brother or a relation of the Colonel and Mary Ann's father.
[Colonel Charles Stewart of Ardshiel has an uncle who died at Culloden. Indeed, "the Ardsheal family alone lost eight killed and three wounded at this Battle." (Source)]

The Kanssen notes imply (1):

The father of Catherine Barbara and Mary Ann Stewart is the brother of Colonel Stewart who commanded the Duke of Perth's Regiment. Their mother's name is Jane. Also by implication the brother of Colonel Stewart is his younger brother. It is also likely that the brother was also an officer.
Emily Stewart Drewry's statement suggests that there is another relative who died at Culloden.

The notes suggest (2) either:

(a) That Katherine Barbara Stewart (who married her cousin the Earl of Nithsdale) is related to William Runciman. ("The Runcimans .. They were also connected by marriage - through .. Lady Katherine Barbara Stewart ..".)
(b) That Col. Stewart & his brother are related to Katherine Barbara Stewart and hence the Earl of Traquair.

I suspect that the Runciman link to the Stewarts is through (b) Col. Stewart's brother's marriage to Jane.
"They were also connected by marriage - through the Earl of Traquair .." implies that Col. Stewart and his brother or Jane are related to the Traquairs. At a guess it is probably Jane, since the christening gift is given to her.

On the other hand, the link might actually be via an illegitimate child, Cosmas Henry Stewart.

The notes suggest (3) either:

That the Runcimans had land in Ardvorlich which they lost because "Col. Stewart & his brother .. fought for Prince Charles Edward"
That Col. Stewart & his brother had land in Ardvorlich which they lost because they " .. fought for Prince Charles Edward"

Again, the latter interpretation seems more likely.

The notes say (4) that "Col. Stewart commanded the Duke of Perth's Regiment."

This cannot be correct.
There are only two Colonel Stewarts who served in the Prince's army. (There are references to a third but he is probably one of these two by another name.)
In the book 'No Quarter Given: The Muster Roll of Prince Charles Edward Stuart's Army, 1745-46' (The Muster Roll), there is in 'The Staff', a Paymaster : Charles Stewart who might possibly have an equivalent rank of Colonel.
BUT at Culloden none of these Colonels commanded the Duke of Perth's Regiment (the Duke of Perth did). On the other hand, in other battles, there may have been a different command structure.
In the Battle of Culloden, there appears to be a 'Duke of Perth's Division' and a 'Duke of Perth's Regiment' (not part of the Division). Colonel John Roy's Regiment was part of this 'Division' but he has no brother.

Are we to take the statement to mean that 'Col.' Stewart was a high ranking officer in the regiment? Or, that his rank has perhaps been exaggerated a little over time? Or some confusion has arisen as to his superior?
Could it be possible that 'Col.' Stewart was a Major? Each regiment had one Major. Some battle accounts refer to a major in command of a regiment.
See the discussions regarding 'Colonel Stewart' and 'Major Stewart', below.

Lady Katherine Barbara Stewart

From The Peerage.com

"William Maxwell, Earl of Nithsdale was the son of William Maxwell, 5th Earl of Nithsdale and Lady Winifred Herbert.
He married, firstly, Catherine Stewart, daughter of Charles Stewart, 4th Earl of Traquair and Mary Maxwell, in 1730.
He married, secondly, Anne Fox on 11 August 1767.
He died on 2 August 1776."

"Catherine Stewart .. died on 16 June 1765."

According to the above, Jane's daughter, Catherine Barbara Stewart, who received the the 'China bowl' as a christening present must have been born before 1765 - since Lady Catherine died then - and is therefore the elder sister of Mary Ann Stewart.
In Debrett's (see image) Catherine's death is in 1773, but this seems unlikely as her husband, William, marries his second wife, Anne Fox, in 1767.

From Rootsweb

Catherine STEWART
# Birth: 4 FEB 1704/05 in Scotland
# Death: 16 JUN 1765 in Paris, France
Father: Charles STEWART , 4th earl of Traquair b: 1659 in Scotland
Mother: Mary MAXWELL b: in Scotland
Marriage William MAXWELL , titular earl of Nithsdale b: in Scotland
* Married: 27 JUN 1731 in Scotland
* Child: Lady Winifred Maxwell d. 1801

It is interesting to note that Lady Catherine died in Paris.
Many of the Scottish forces who survived the Uprising fled to France.
The christening gift to Jane for her daughter may have been made in Paris.

A Brief History of Traquair and the Family

"The gates of Traquair House will never re-open until a Stuart king is restored to the throne" - the confident words of the Fifth Earl of Traquair as he bade adieu to his guest, Bonnie Prince Charles, one autumn day in 1745. The gates have stayed closed for more than 250 years, and will probably never open. Visitor access is via the tradesmen's entrance. [Source]

Colonel Stewart

Source: Google Books

There are two documented Colonel Stewarts who served in the Prince's army.
Colonel Charles Stewart of Ardshiel
Colonel John Roy Stewart
There is a reference to
Colonel Stewart Invernenty
There is also in the HQ Staff:
Charles Stewart, Paymaster

Colonel Stewart of Ardshiel

Charles Stewart of Ardshiel led the Appin Stewarts. He fled to France after Culloden, and died 15th March 1757. The Appin Estates were confiscated. (Charles is the chief for whom Alan Breck Stewart collected rents. See Kidnapped, by R. L. Stevenson, chap, ix.) [Source]

Charles had a brother John Stewart, and a 'natural' brother known as James Stewart of the Glens.
James Stewart was executed in 1752 for the murder of Colin Campbell of Glenure (by a solidly Campbell hury).
John Stewart: I have not been able to find out anything about John Stewart.
He does not claim Ardsheal after the death of his brother Charles.

Charles of Ardshiel and his brother John appear to be a reasonable fit for 'Col. Stewart & his brother'.
The Appins had lands that can be associated with Ardvorlich.
All Appin lands were ravaged brutally and confiscated.

Colonel John Roy Stewart

John Roy Stewart (1700-1752) had his own regiment. John Roy was the "John Roy Stewart was born at Knock in Kincardine, Badenoch, the [only] son of Donald Stewart and his second wife Barbara Shaw." (Source1; Source2)

John Roy's Regiment was part of Lord Perth's Division at Culloden, but he has no brother.
His lands were confiscated, and while they can be said to be within the Perth area, they are at some distance from either Ardvorlich.

Colonel Stewart Invernenty

There is a reference to a Colonel Stewart Invernenty in the Balquhidder Stewarts of Ardvorlich Branch 3:

"Lieut. Alexander Grudairgorrach Stewart b: abt 1700 in Perthshire, Scotland. Alexander is described in Stewarts of the South as follows: 'James Stewart had an uncle Alexander Stewart, commonly called Grudairgorrach. He (Alexander) was a Lieutenant in Colonel Stewart Invernenty's Regiment in the year 1745.'"

Source: Google Books

Another reference in a Balquhidder Stewarts forum describes:

"Duncan Stewart of Invernenty, of the Stewarts of Appin, who was killed in the last charge of the Highlanders at the battle of Culloden, 1746."

The cutting on the right names Appin as the Laird of Invernenty.

In '.. The Muster Roll .. 1745-46', in the Stewarts of Appin Regiment:
Under 'Lieutenants' there is no Alexander Stewart, although
Under 'Other Officers' there is an 'Alexander, son of James Stewart, Ardgour'.
Under 'Other Officers' there is also one Duncan Stewart: Uncle to Ardsheal, killed at Falkirk or Culloden. Could Duncan be 'Colonel Invernenty'? or is Charles of Ardshiel his nephew and 'Colonel Invernenty'
Under 'Other Ranks' there are two Duncan Stewarts killed at Culloden: one 'of Mull' the other 'Inverhyle family'

Curiously, there is another reference to Invernenty in '.. The Muster Roll ..', p61, in Pitsligo's Horses:

"William Moir Lieutenant Brother to Invernenty, sailor, Peterhead (cousin to Moir of Stoneywood)"
[Is the 'cousin': Charles Moir, shipmaster, who served in the Duke of Perth's Regiment?]

In '.. The Muster Roll .. 1745-46', in the Duke of Perth's Regiment:
There is no Lieutenant Alexander Stewart but there is a Captain Alexander, of Glenbuckie, Balquhidder. There appear to be Stewart family connections between Glenbuckie and Invernenty.

Charles Stewart, Paymaster

In '.. The Muster Roll .. 1745-46', in 'The Staff': there is a Paymaster : Charles Stewart who might possibly have an equivalent rank of Colonel. Unfortunately, little seems to be known about him.
The entry reads: 'Stewart, Charles, in Maryburg, Escaped'.
What does 'in Maryburg' mean? That he was in the army there? That he was in prison there? That he was from Maryburg?

Web searches suggest that Laurence Oliphant of Gask was paymaster for Prince Charles. (Source 1; Source 2).
Each of the Regiments would have had its own paymaster. For example Captain Donald ('Donell Gorm') M'Donell is listed as one of the paymasters for the Prince Charles Edward Stuart's Army in 1745-46. (Source)

The entry for Charles in 'The Muster Roll' cites the Earl of Rosebery's 'List of Persons Concerned in the Rebellion' as source. The entry in Rosebery's list is as shown below.


It is not clear how the editors of 'The Muster Roll' came to give him the status of Paymaster.
From his position in the list, it is clear that he was an Appin Stewart. In 'The Stewarts of Appin' there is the following:

"Charles Stewart, only son of Alexander, was attached to the person of Prince Charles in 1745-6 as his Purse Bearer, and received from the Prince the appointment of Sheriff of Argyll."

Alexander was the third son of John Stewart, sixth of Fasnacloich, an Appin branch. His son Charles is not our man - his marriage and children are well documented.

Major Stewart

The Battle of Culloden (Wikipedia) list of Scottish forces shows only two Stewarts/Stuarts in command positions: Charles Stuart of Ardsheal (mentioned above) and Maj. Patrick Stewart commanding John Roy Stuart's Regiment.

The 'Muster Roll' for John Roy Stewart's Regiment has:

Colonel: "Stuart, John Roy, former Dragoon Officer, Kincardine, Strathspey"
Major: "Stewart, Patrick, (?of Kininder, Banff)".

An entry in Rosebery's list shows:

"Stuart, Patrick, Farmer, Tininder, Banff".

Who is this Maj. Patrick Stewart?
I can find neither Kininder, or Tininder in Banff. In any case Banff is a great distanced from the highlands. Patrick Stewart of Ledcreich would be a good fit (for us) as elder brother of John (below), but that Patrick is known to be in America during the 1745 Uprising.
This Major Stewart is unlikely to be connected to us.

The 'Muster Roll' for the Duke of Perth's Regiment has:

Colonel "Drummond, Lieutenant-General James, Duke of Perth. Died escaping to France."
Lieutenant-Colonel "Drummond, James, Master of Strathallan. Esscaped."
Major: "Stewart, James, Gentleman to Perth. Captured, Pardoned".

James JamesStewarrtCulloden.jpg

James James.jpg
[The Scottish Jacobite Army 1745-46 - Page 61]

While not a Colonel, Major James could have commanded the Duke of Perth's Regiment in battle. Is he a candidate for our 'Colonel'?

The 'Muster Roll' for The Atholl Brigade has:

"Stewart, David, brother of Ardvorlich"
"Taken: Leny Braes, Died Tollbooth, Stirling, 1746"

Major David was arrested for his participation in the Jacobite uprising of 1745. He was imprisoned in Stirling where he later died of his wounds. his story is told in the Stewarts of Balquhidder pages and in other places such as The pictorial history of Scotland, A.D.79-1746. (See image below.)

According to the Balquhidder pages, his only brother, was Robert Stewart (1681-1751), 5th Laird of Ardvorlich.

The Stewarts of Ardvorlich

In the Stewarts of Balquhidder Ardvorlich pages: the Stewarts of Ardvorlich, Comrie Parish, Perthshire, Scotland, "are the senior branch of the Stewarts of Balquhidder."
There is no connection to the Runciman name, nor do the 'three tigers' appear in the Ardvorlich coat-of-arms.

Robert Stewart (1681-1751) was the son James Stewart, 4th Laird of Ardvorlich, Steward of Doune.
Robert was the 5th Laird of Ardvorlich, from 1698 to 1751. He died without issue.
"Curiously, this Robert is the only Chief of Ardvorlich who is not listed on the family stone at Dundurn".
There also seems to be some controversy as to his position and even existence in the Ardvorlich line.
Robert is shown as having: a sister Marie, and a brother Major David Stewart (see above).

Clearly these two brothers, David and Robert cannot be our ancestors since they die in 1746 and 1751 and there is no evidence of any other brother.

Robert, 5th of Ardvorlich, was succeeded by a cousin who died in 1760, without issue.
The next Laird and his family might be of interest to us.

From the Stewarts of Balquhidder Ardvorlich page

Robert Stewart, 5th of Balimeanach and 7th of Ardvorlich b: abt. 20 Nov 1707 in Balimeanach, Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland.
["Balimeanach was known more fully as Balimeanach of Ardvorlich" - and is next door to Ardvorlich]

Robert Stewart's siblings:
John Stewart b: abt. 3 Nov 1709 in Comrie, Perthshire, of whom nothing is known.
Alexander Stewart b: abt. 1712 in Balimeanach, Comrie, Perthshire, of whom nothing is known.
Dougald Stewart b: abt. 1715 in Comrie, Perthshire, of whom nothing is known.
Katherine Stewart b: abt. 9 Mar 1717/18 in Balmenoch, Comrie, Perthshire, of whom nothing is known.
James Stewart b: abt. 26 Sep 1723 in Balimeanach, Comrie, Perthshire
Jean Stewart b: abt. Mar 1725/26 in Balimeanach, Comrie, Perthshire, of whom nothing is known.
Patrick Stewart b: abt. 26 Feb 1727/28 in Balimeanach, Comrie, Perthshire, of whom nothing is known.

Their father was William Stewart, 4th of Balimeanach, a cadet branch of the Ardvorlich Stewarts.
Two of William Stewart's siblings settled in London.
[Robert's daughter, Jean (b. 1748), married (1771) Captain Robert McNab of Dundurn.]

But the estate at Ardvorlich was NOT confiscated. So we can probably rule them out.

Two Ardvorlichs?

Ardvorlich, discussed above, is on the South coast of Loch Erne. Across the water is the mountain Ben Vorlich, visible from Ardvorlich House. The Ardvorlich estate on Loch Erne is known to have existed before 1745 and was not confiscated after the Uprising. (See pictures in the Stewarts of Balquhidder Ardvorlich page)
It is possible that there were Appin Stewarts in the area who fought in the uprising and whose houses were destroyed, but I have no evidence for this. However, Major David Stewart, brother to the Laird of Ardvorlich was captured in the Braes of Leny, recorded as part of the landholdings of the Ardvorlich Stewarts.

There is another Ben Vorlich, on the Western border of Perthshire, on the West coast of Loch Lomond. There is an Ardvorlich House beside Loch Lomond. ThisArdvorlich House is a guest house built in the early 20th century. It is possible that there was an Ardvorlich estate there in 1745, but I have not been able to confirm this. The current owners do not know the history of the area.
The fact that locally there are Ardvorlich Cascades (View), an Ardvorlich Bay, and references to the area as Ardvorlich (e.g.) suggests that the name predates the guest house.
From what I have read it does seem that there were Appin Stewarts and others living around Loch Lomond and that these people had their houses burnt and were subject to brutal reprisals.
It is possible that the brothers held land on an estate that was confiscated, perhaps even an estate of another clan.
There may also have been at least one branch of the Balquhidder Stewarts living near to Loch Lomond. (Source) They were not, however in the Ardvorlich area.

It could well be that the two brothers we are interested in were Appin Stewarts and came from the Ardvorlich area at the north end of Loch Lomond.

Balquhidder and the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745

"The Jacobite Rebellion in 1745 had disastrous consequences for the area. In Balquhidder glen, many clans including MacGregors, MacLarens and Stewarts had supported the forces of Prince Charles Edward. Lands were forfeit and clansman and families burned out of their homes. The MacGregor estate Invercarnaig was laid waste and the remains of their burial ground are still visible at the top of Loch Doine."[source]

"The wearing of Highland dress was forbidden as was carrying arms. Even the bagpipe was outlawed, classed for the purpose of the Act, as weapon of war." [source]

In the Balquhidder forum there is a discussion of some of the Jacobite Stewarts of the area. Some of the Stewarts that are dicussed in the forum are referenced below.

Unfortunately, just as here, some of the references in the 'Stewarts of Balquhidder' Web site have little supporting information. For example in the Stewart of Invernahyle page, there is the following enigmatic quote:

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

Alexander's father was Alexander Stewart, fourth of Ballachelish, who was also at Culloden. Who the nephews are is not clear, but it looks like 3 generations of this family were at Culloden.

And the Stewarts seem to choose names for their children from a very short list.

Alexander Stewart

In the Stewarts of Balquhidder forum:

"Stewart, Alexander, of Glen Buckie, Balquhidder, Duke of Perth's Regiment. In September 1745 on his march to join the Prince, Glen Buckie slept at Leny and was found shot dead in his bed; supposed suicide. CA.3.302"

John Stewart of Ledcreich

In the Stewarts of Balquhidder Ledcreich pages:

"Among the list of convicted Jacobites in 1745 we find a reference to 'Stewart, John, Lieutenant, of Ledcreich, Balquhidder, Duke of Perth's [Regiment]'."

Unfortunately, nothing more is known about this John. It is suggested that:

"He would fit as a younger son of Alexander Stewart, 4th of Ledcreich, previously undiscovered, who perhaps emigrated to be with his brothers after being arrested in 1746."

If John is a younger son of Alexander Stewart then his brothers could be:

"Patrick Stewart, 5th of Ledcreich and Stronslany, b: 7 Feb 1697 .. Patrick, along with his brother William, and six Argyllshire gentlemen (land owners), together with three hundred other Highlanders (commoners) immigrated in 1739 to Cape Fear"

"Alexander Stewart, b: 11 Sep 1707 .. He died as a child." [One would expect 'Alexander' to be the firstborn.]

"Robert Stewart, 7th of Ledcreich and Stronslany, b: abt 1705 .. According to Stewart Clan Magazine, Robert, 'the younger brother of the above Patrick, is said to have purchased the estate of Ledcreich, in south-western Perthshire, of Patrick, about 1746'."

The titular numbers attached to the above names should not be taken as historical fact. For example John, about whom little is known, other than that he is listed as a convicted Jacobite, is given the title 'John Stewart 6th of Ledcreich and Stronslany'.
There is a discussion about John Stewart in the Stewarts of Balquhidder forum

Capture of Major Stewart

These must be references to Major David Stewart [Source], and Major James Stewart.


James Stewart

Who is this James Stewart? (Lord linton is the Earl of Traquair)


Lord Perth's Regiment

In the Battle of Culloden - New World Encyclopedia

"James Drummond, 3rd Duke of Perth and Chief of Clan Drummond, was severely wounded - he was carried from the field, but died on his way to France"
"The Duke of Perth's Regiment consisted mainly of members of Clan Drummond. "

In The Battle of Culloden : "Duke of Perth's Regiment: .. The unit included a party of MacGregors."

In Genealogy Data : "Again in 1745 the clan [McNab] took up arms in support of Prince Charlie, and were conjoined with the Duke of Perth's regiment at Culloden."

In Culloden Moor and the Story of the Battle: "Lord Pitsligo's horse, sometimes called the Perth Dragoons."

The details of the Battle and the forces in the Battle seem to be the subject of some discussion. I have found different figures for the number of men in Lord Perth's Regiment - 300 and 900.

The Battle of Culloden (Wikipedia) list of Scottish forces rather confusingly has:
the Duke of Perth's Division - containing 3 regiments, and
Duke of Perth's Regiment: 300 men - in John Roy Stuart's Division - commanded by James Drummond, Master of Strathallan. [Eldest son of Viscount Strathallan]
There is also 'Strathallan's Horse' (elsewhere called 'the Perthshire Horse') in the Cavalry , commanded by William, Lord Strathallan [Viscount Strathallan].

An interesting Quote in 'Historical papers relating to the Jacobite period, 1699-1750':

"Oct. 15. Joined by Lord Lewis Gordon; by the Master of Strathallan, with 300 men from Balquhidder"

Letters & A List

Stewart Officers in the Uprising

The following attempt at a comprehensive list is based on an Excel spreadsheet found on the Web - entitled: 'A list of persons concerned in the rebellion: transmitted to the comissioners of excise by the several supervisors in Scotland in obedience to a general letter of the 7th May, 1746'.

The list has been augmented with names and details from:

'Jacobites of Perthshire, 1745' by Frances McDonnell, and
'No Quarter Given: The Muster Roll of Prince Charles Edward Stuart's Army, 1745-46' edited by Livingstone, Aikman and Hart.
