John Stewart, Sheriff of Bute
illegitimate son of
Robert II, King of Scotland
and descendant of Henry I
"The Black Stewart",
of the Isle of Bute
W Scotland, at mouth of Clyde,
he was granted the hereditary office of
Sheriff of Bute by his father
died 1449, age 89 yrs,
younger son, born est c.1405,
James Stewart, Sheriff of Bute,
Ninian Stewart, Sheriff of Bute, born 1469,
mar 3rdly, pre-1516, to
apparently died pre-1538,
of Nether Kilmory in 1532,
and of Largobroughton [unidentified],
Kildavanan [on Bute]
and Kilchattan [on Bute],
says he is ancestor of Stewart of Ballintoy,
- Archibald Stewart,
rebelled in 1544,
left Scotland 1559,
came to Dunseverick, Billy par,
on coast, N Co.Antrim, N Ireland,
later settled in next parish,
at Ballynastraid (this is official spelling),
on coast, N Co.Antrim,
the family built Ballintoy Castle (now gone).
This line needs more work.
All sources agree that Ninian Stewart (son of Ninian by 3rd mar)
is ancestor of Stewart of Ballintoy.
Mary Stewart Kyritsis
has Ninian's son Archibald as the one who
came to Ireland.
has Ninian with a son Robert.
has our Christian as the dau of James.
says Stewart of Ballintoy descends from
"Sir James Stewart, whose father was Sir Ninian of Nether Kilmory in 1532".
So for the moment I put Christian as the dau of James,
a younger son of Ninian.
But this line needs more work:
James Stewart, of Ballintoy, Co.Antrim,
think NOT John,
think younger son, who also moved to Ireland,
Christian Stewart [dau],
mar think c.1612 to Brice Dunlop
and had issue.
