:-[]:-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.
