Clan Stewart

Arms of the Chief of Clan Stewart

Clan Stewart (Gaelic: Stiùbhard) is a Highland Scottish clan. The clan is recognised by Court of the Lord Lyon[1], however it does not have a clan chief recognised by the Lord Lyon King of Arms.

Because the clan has no chief it can be considered an armigerous clan; however the Earls of Galloway[2] are now considered to be the principal branch of this clan, and the crest and motto of The Earls of Galloway's arms are used in the Clan Stewart crest badge.

The Court of the Lord Lyon recognises two other 'Stewart' clans, Clan Stuart of Bute and Clan Stewart of Appin.

Clan Stuart of Bute is the only 'Stewart' clan at present which has a "recognised" chief[3].

The Clan Stewart traces its roots back to Walter Stewart who as the 3rd hereditary High Steward to the King of Scotland adopted the name Stewart. His son Alexander the 4th High Steward saw the clan branch into two distinct lines through his sons James Stewart (5th High Steward) and Sir John Stewart of Bonkyl.

C.o.A. for John Stewart of Bonkyl.

Alexanders 2nd son is considered to be the real originator of the Clan Stewart as his elder brother James as 5th High Steward was the Grandfather of King Robert the 2nd of Scotland the first of the Royal Stewarts (Stuart), from whom descend the Stewart kings, the Stewart Earls of Fife, the Stewarts of Mentieth and the Stewart Dukes of Albany.

Apart from the Royal House of Stewart, the main branches of the clan that settled in the Scottish Highlands during the 14th and 15th centuries were the Stewarts of Appin descended from Dugald Stewart and the Stewarts (Stuart) of Bute descended from John Stewart, younger son of Robert Stewart who reigned as Robert II of Scotland.

For the ninth creation the 1st Earl was John Stewart, 1st Earl of Atholl (1566–1603) (only son of the 5th Lord Innermeath). His son James Stewart, 2nd Earl of Atholl (d. 1625) (only son of the 1st Earl, he died without issue and both titles became extinct)

The Stewart Earldom ceased after the ninth creation when Sir William Murray of Castleton (who had married Lady Margaret, daughter of John Stewart, 1st Earl of Atholl) became 1st Earl of Atholl 10th making

Many Stewarts continued to live in the Atholl area with many claiming descent from the Wolf of Badenoch. These Stewarts of Atholl are descended from Walter a son of Alexander Stewart, Earl of Buchan (the Wolf of Badenoch).

They were mainly transferred by allegiance to the Murray Earls of Athol and were known as Athol men. This is maintained today with the Athol Highlanders, Europe's only legal private army. General David Stewart of Garth, an Athol man, was an officer in the Black Watch regiment and his book, Sketches of the Highlanders and Highland Regiments, popularized his homeland in Victorian England.

James Stewart built a strong castle at [Garth Castle] where he settled at the end of the 14th century. Structures have dotted the land of Garth Castle since 1100 AD according to the monks of Fortingall records. The first Castle of Garth was built in the early 1200s by Alexander II, King of Scots (and grandson of Robert Bruce). Edward I of England sent his soldiers to destroy the structure, breaking down the massive stone walls with catapults and fierce fighting men.

The heir to Garth, Alexander Stewart (the Wolf of Badenoch) rebuilt and fortified the castle structure in 1384, to resist the onslaught of flaming arrows and rocks hurled from catapults.

Stewarts of Castlemilk

The Stewarts of Castlemilk (also spelt Castlemylk) are descended from Sir John Stewart of Bonkyl.

The line from Sir John of Bonkyl to Matthew Stuart, 6th of Castlemilk cannot at present be proved. The line however is shown with the current known sources via Walter Stewart of Dalswinton.

The line from Alexander Stewart of Darnley is deliberately not shown for clarity even though there is a source in Burkes Peerage. However in the Heraldry of the Stewarts by George Harvey Johnston (Page 49) it becomes clear that this line cannot be proved.

Stuarts of Torrance

Sir James Stuart youngest son of Archibald (12th of Castlemilk) was the 1st of Torrance.

The Stewarts of Aubigney

See:- Scots in French Service

John Stewart (John Stuart) of Darnley along with his brother William were killed in battle on Feb 9, 1429, trying to relieve Orléans. John was made the 1st Stewart lord of Aubigny.

John Stuart of Darnley's eldest son Alan Stewart inherited the lands in Scotland, and his second son John inherited Aubigny and Concressault.

The successive lords of Aubigny dutifully swore liege homage to the king of France (in 1600 by Esme, son of the 1st duke of Lennox, in 1636 by George Stuart, in 1656 by Ludovic Stuart, in 1670 by Charles Stuart).

C.O.A. for Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley.

Meanwhile, the elder branch had ended with Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley, husband of Mary Queen of Scots, and father of James VI (I of England); thus, when the 6th duke of Lennox and 11th seigneur d'Aubigny died in 1672, the heir to Aubigny was the king of England and Scotland, Charles II.

Louis XIV, however, was reticent to have a foreign sovereign own fiefs in France, and refused to acknowledge the inheritance, and an arrêt du conseil of 20 Jan 1673 pronounced the reversion of Aubigny to the crown of France.

See:- Seigneur d'Aubigney

Anne and Robert gave homage for Aubigny in 1508. Aubigny then went to another younger son of the elder branch, John Stewart , who gave homage in 1560.

C.o.A. for the Stewart Earls of Lennox.

Sir John Stewart was created Lord Darnley about 1461and about 1473 assumed the title Earl of Lennox, he died in 1495 leaving six sons.

The eldest son Mathew Stewart the 2nd Earl of Lennox was killed at Flodden. John the 3rd Earl was Murdered in 1526 leaving three sons. Mathew Stewart the 4th Earl married Margaret the daughter of Archibald Douglas, Earl of Angus by his 2nd wife Lady Margaret Tudor daughter of King Henry VII of England.
