:-[]:-P 3 Celts & Company • "STEWART"

The surname Stewart is the same as Steward, indicating the official in charge of the household and treasury, whether of the king or of some court-holding earl or bishop. It was from Walter fitz Alan, the Norman noble appointed by David I hereditary High Steward of Scotland with personal estates in Renfewshire, that the Stewart kings descended. But Walter's influential family and descendants had established various separate branches of Stewarts before their main line attained its Royal status. This occurred through another Walter, the 6th High Stewart, who fought at Bannockburn, marrying King Robert Bruces's daughter Marjory: their son became Robert II the first Stewart king, when David II died childless in 1371. From then on the Stewart dynasty's strengths and weaknesses, self-sacrificing leadership mingled with unremitting obstinacies, brought no little of the clan spirit into national history.
Previous to 1371, Walter's uncle Sir John Stewart of Bonkill, who fell at Falkirk 1298, left seven sons. The first three founded respectively the Stewart earldoms of Angus, Lennox, and Galloway.

:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "STEWART of Atholl"

The first Stewart earl of Atholl was John of Balveny, son of Sir James Stewart 'Black Knight of Lorn' and Jane, widow of King James I of Scotland. But, around the same time, most of the Atholl clan sprang from five sons of Sir Alexander Stewart, fourth son of Robert II, and most markedly remembered as the fierce 'Wolf of Balenoch,' who died 1404.
