Clan History

Being one of the western Highland branches of Clan Stewart, this Clan was on terms of friendship with Clan MacLaren; they supported each other in several battles.

The banner of the Stewarts of Appin Regiment was one of the few saved from destruction after the Battle of Culloden.

Stewart TartansClan Stuart of Bute

The beautiful Isle of Bute formed part of the domain of Walter, the first High Steward, and remained a Stewart possession except for a brief Norse occupation. But only after 1385 did a family branch become established there, when Sir John Stewart a son of King Robert II was appointed hereditary Sheriff of Bute and Arran; and his descendants still hold the marquisate of Bute.

Other Branches

Many noble families are descended from the Royal line. Stewarts have held or hold the Dukedoms of Albany, Rothesay and Lennox, the Marquessate of Bute, and the Earldoms of Menteith, Angus, Atholl, Strathearn, Carrick, Buchan and Galloway. 

Go to Family History Among other Stewart families were those of Achnacone, Ardsheal, Ardvorlich (Mac-'ic-Bhaltair), Balquidder, Blackhall, Bonkil, Castlemilk, Dalguise, Fasnacloich, Grandtully, Greenock, Invernahyle and Skye.
