Summary: (AM from PRONI info 8/1999, with extra from JJF)
EMS was farming in a small way in SW Scotland, at Baldoon, near Wigtown, near the shore of the estuary where there are still "Baldoon sands" shown on maps. Possibly after a hard winter, by 1832 he had decided it was not a viable proposition. The land was rented from Mr Arbuckle. There was evidently talk and papers about life in North America. He decided to go to Upper Canada with Matthew Arbuckle (the son of his landowner?), with whom he may have been farming at Baldoon, to see for himself what Canada was like. He sailed by the "Eagle" on 27 May 1832, from Liverpool. It is not known how long he spent in Canada, but he was presumably in Britain when he was married in September 1833.
His time in Baldoon explains his meeting Jane Renwick Jeffrey, who is said by EMC to have come from Dumfries-shire: JJF describes her father as an Edinburgh lawyer; maybe he had property in Allerbeck. No information has appeared about his marriage except for a reference in the notes of letters received by his parents of congratulations sent and a date in GPS. A collection of drawings and paintings in Jane's sister Agnes's Sentiment Book holds a pencil drawing by Jane of Wigtown from Baldoon: Jane must therefore have been at Baldoon at some time.
A number of Jane's siblings emigrated to North America in the 1830's, the first seeming to be her younger brother, Alexander (at the age of 16). They were mostly in the US, but her sister Isabella married Rev Bold Cudmore Hill of Co Haldiman, Ontario. Another sister, Agnes was a painter. Several of her close relatives were also artists. Who set the trend is unclear.
He, his wife Jane, son Henry William and maid arrived in Canada by February 1835 and lodged for a time with a Doctor. History does not relate where. They were in Cayuga by 1839, when his mother wrote to her nephew, Charles Wellesley, asking him to look out for them.

Letter from EM Stewart to Mother (PRONI D3319/9/4):
My dear Mother,
I will go to Pakenham Hall on tuesday next I know no objection to my going to Tyrcallen with you and Heny. I saw Aunt Bess today Miss Edgeworth & Miss Honora Edgeworth & Master Francis Beaufort Edgeworth paid her a long visit. Miss Edgeworth very condescendingly recognized me and asked particularly for James & I had the honor of handing her to her coach - Mr Edgeworth as she told us is trying experiments on wheel carriages, but he is not able to walk tho' he is much better - I saw Saint Lawrance several times lately he walks very well. George Knox son to the Bishop of Derry got a premium - Willy seemed to think that Marpendale had been beaten but it was no such thing he cut for the premium with Honnor. Dicky Pakenham has not the first Volume of Willy's Demosthenes. pray tell him that me? try & recollect who has it that I may get it from him, that I may bring it with me, that I may read my examinations in it. Pray tell him also that I took proper care, tho' he did not to notify to the proper officers his departure from Colege(?)
I am your afft son EM Stewart.
This letter must have been written about 1814 whilst he was at TCD. The reference to "Aunt Bess" must have been to his spinster great aunt, Elizabeth Pakenham, who died about 1818.
Letter from Edward Michael Stewart re Canada, 1832.
Addressed to Henry Stewart esq, 6 Leinster Sq, Dublin.
Liverpool 12 May (1832)
My dear father,
I have received your letter begun the 10th and ended 11th from Dublin. Dr Wm and I left our friends at Baldoon yesterday morning after breakfast, & Matthew drove us to Garhiestown and saw us off - we had a good passage & came into the smooth water of the river late last night, & up to the quay this morning - Dr Robert was not at home having been called up before 5 this morning - His landlady has received us hospitably & given us a good breakfast & dressing rooms; but not knowing where the lodging which Dr Robert has engaged for me is, I am staying here with all my luggage, which is not a little, till the Doctor comes home. I am particularly glad that you are writing to Matthew Arbuckle himself. I advised and almost entreated him to write to you yesterday, & I hope he may do so; but lest he should not, I will lay before you a calculation he made & shewed me on Wednesday night last.
For his outfit, passage, journey, & expenses in Canada until a purchase can be made, suppose - £100
Expenses of personal establishment for a year, including servant - say £100
Interest on £1000 at 5 percent - 50
The suppose £2000 invested so as to produce immediately 15 percent, for one year = £300 one share of which = £150;
which, subtracted from expenses of first year leaves £100 debt; and every subsequent year proceeds of investment only = personal expenses.
From this it results that either I must ascertain that probable return of £2000 invested in land or otherwise in Upper Canada, will be more than 15 percent, before Matthew Arbuckle can prudently leave Scotland; or some other arrangement must be made. Mr Arbuckle spoke to me about it himself yesterday morning the last thing before taking leave of me, & I only replied that he must know, as well as I, that you would never expect Matthew to do any thing from which he should not have a fair return, and that as Mr Arbuckle himself had told me that he always had hitherto found you disposed to be liberal, so he might reckon upon finding you so still. Having stated this to you, I hope I may take leave of the subject altogether, for it is entirely a matter between you and the Arbuckles, & I do not wish to be a go-between in a case where direct communication between partied is so easy. I have received a newspaper article with an article on Canada marked. I thank my mother for her letter, but do not want any thing that I can think from Dublin.
I suppose from what you say that Beaumaris has met your approbation.
Your very affte.
Dr Wm delivers his respects.
From the foregoing letter, it appears that Edward Stewart was going into partnership with Matthew Arbuckle with £1000 each in land in Upper Canada: Arbuckle hoped to borrow at 5% and reinvest in Canada and return 15% or more to cover his living expenses. He is supposed to have gone to Canada about 1832, this letter may have been written on his way via Liverpool.

It is a great ?? for them to have a doctor so near them in that forlorn Country but her appears happy and nobody can be more than that.
1853: extract from piece about house research in Guelph, Ontario, using as example a house built by Rev Arthur Palmer (see below) ......
This indicates that Palmer was the fourth owner of that property, after the Canada Company, John McDonald (a Canada Company surveyor), and George Tiffany (another Canada Company surveyor). Palmer purchased some 23 acres from Tiffany (the B & S, or Bill of Sale) and Tiffany gave Palmer a mortgage for at least part of it. This does not tell us much about any house on this large property. However, Palmer took out another mortgage for 1800 pounds in September of 1853 from Rev. E.M. Stewart, who happened to be his assistant minister at St. George's. This mortgage was renewed in 1856, and repaid in 1859. Presumably, this money was used to build what Palmer called Tyrcathlen, and which was renamed Ker Cavan in 1928. (see end of this section for more about Arthur Palmer).
The name of the house "Tyrcathlen" must be a bastardisation of the Stewart family home in Ireland.
Married: 12/9/1833 (GPS) (IGI, Ballymenagh, Donegal)
Born: 20/3/1805, died 16/2/1878.
Parents: John Armstrong & Elizabeth Catherine (McConnell) Jeffrey.
(Renwick being the name of her aunt Jane's husband)
Ref EMC: "Jane Renwick, dau of John Jeffrey of Allerbeck, Dumfries" & Mrs Jeans (the latter from the Ancestral File).
Ref GPS: Jane Renwick Jeffrey, dau of John Jeffrey of Allerbeck Dumfries; later information from the GPS family say that her mother may have been "Elizabeth Catherine McConnell daughter of William McConnell of Wigtown, Sheriff Substitute". EMC in Ontarian Families, agrees.
Note on the back of small pastel of woman and girl at Burcher Cottage:
"Mrs Jeffery - formerly Jean Renwick and daughter. Jane Renwick afterwards Mrs E.M. Stewart whose daughter Elizabeth was married to FJ Chadwick." Also on back in pencil "CR Chadwick 1896" (Charlotte Rose (Aunt Nonie)).
1998: picture now at the Gables.
This was written about 1896 by Charlotte Rose Chadwick, dau of FJ Chadwick and grand daughter of Jane Renwick.
This does not agree with information from the Jeffrey family research. It implies that Jane's mother was Christian named Jean and had perhaps been formerly married to Mr Renwick. The mother in the pastel must be Elizabeth McConnell.

.....In reporting this, Henry William Stewart, Rector & Rural Dean of Knockbreda, in the Church of Ireland’s Diocese of Down, affirmed "I have seen the document and the seal but of course cannot read them." In 1889 he is reported to have been preaching in the Presbyterian Churches of Belfast, notably Berry Street Church and St. Enoch’s Church, Belfast and it was noted that "He enjoys the confidence of and is warmly recommended by the most eminent men in the Presbyterian Church of Scotland."
In 1890 he was still preaching and lecturing in Belfast as Stewart noted, "He can now speak English fairly well and he hopes to become a naturalized English subject before he goes back to the East." It was at this time that he was taken up by Archbishop Plunket, Anglican Archbishop of Dublin, as Stewart notes that Checkemian was still in Belfast on 5 September 1890 and had visited the Archbishop. Stewart had a high opinion of him, "I believe him to be a sincere man – and to be a man capable of exercising a powerful influence over others ... It is no doubt an ambitious undertaking, but he is evidently a man of great energy and perseverance."

Jeanette Conacher, (Perth, Western Austrlia)
Fri, 09 May 2008
She was my maternal great Aunt by the name of Lydia Christine Malcolm. She appears to have married John Alexander Stewart 5/4/1904 (possibly Belfast?) and they seem to have had a son Henry William Basil.
I have always thought there was a connection between Lydia's Stewart marriage and her brother's emigration to New Zealand. He was James Black Malcolm and emigrated from Belfast in 1878 on the Lady Jocelyn as part of an Ulster Plantation emigration scheme set up by George Vesy Stewart. George was of the Stewart of Athenree family which I understand has connections to the family you have put up on your site. James Malcolm I believe belonged to the Enniskillen Dragoons at one stage, I understand a Stewart regiment.
I am in regular contact with the archivist in Kati Kati, NZ (I was B in NZ) where the Athenree Stewarts settled. One of my Malcolm relatives is buried next to Adela Stewart who was the wife of Capt Hugh Stewart. I am in touch with some of the descendants of this family in NZ. I see on your web site that Pakenham Thomas Stewart, brother in law to our Lydia, also spent some time in NZ so he may be the family connection to the Ulster settlement scheme I have been looking for. My great grandfather was Duncan Malcolm of Belfast, Lydia Stewart's father.
Fri, 16 May 2008 From:
I have spent a number of years hunting for a maternal blood relative whom I knew only as Lydia Christina Stewart. I was told she was the sole executrix of my great great grandfather, Duncan Malcolm's (of Belfast) Will (poss dated early/mid 1900s). I was told by family years ago that Lydia had married well and I assumed she was Duncan Malcolm's daughter, the more so because I think her mother was Christina Black/Malcolm.
I believe it is she (named as Lydia Christine Malcolm, dau of Duncan Malcolm of Belfast) that I have found in your web site. You show that Lydia married John Alexander Stewart (b 1881 to Henry Wm Stewart and Frances Palmer) in 1904. Duncan Malcolm was a room paper merchant in Victoria Street, Belfast, from the early 1860s until the early 1900s so far as I can find. I understand he was quite well off.
For some reason, Duncan had cast his son (James Black Malcolm, my great grandfather) from his estate. We had been told that James had been a 'naughty boy' but, as happens in families, a veil seems to have been drawn. One story was that he might have been drummed from the army, another that his father purchased his release due to rising tensions in Europe at the time. James apparently trained as an accountant. He went to Kimberley S Africa and then to New York from where his father brought him home. In 1878 his father sent him to NZ as 'cadet' as part of the Stewart of Athenree's Ulster Plantation private settlement scheme in Kati Kati (Bay of Plenty, North island).
I have always strongly felt there was some relationship between the Malcolms and the Stewarts but could never establish it. It seems the Athenree and Killymoon Stewarts are related in some way. There might also be a link thru the Inniskillen Dragoons which James allegedly belonged to for a bit and which I understand was a Stewart regiment.
Christina's sister, Jessy (?Cameron) Malcolm married John Bain, a JP in Belfast; their daughter, also Jessy, married into the Lord/Earl of Essex's family (the Cecils). So the Malcolm clearly had friends in high places (the girls were supposedly very beautiful - Jessy Bain had been known as the Belle of Belfast).
I have attached a couple of pictures: the man with moustache is James Black Malcolm, brother to Lydia Christina Malcolm who married John Alexander Stewart. The other picture is of his son, Guy Cameron Malcolm, James' son, and my maternal grandfather. All so sad because James' three other children died quite suddenly in their late teens: I think the two daughters from that terrible Asian flu that swept the world around WW1, and the other son, Francis, from a fall at school that damaged his spine. Grandpa said his mother used to say no one knows what real sadness is until you have lost several of your children. So, Guy was their sole surviving child and doted on his parents. He was wonderful to them as an adult as they had had a tough life. I understand that the oftimes roguish James, was also a very loveable and likeable Irish character. I found an obit to him in a 1924 NZ newspaper the other day that stated ' A well-known resident, Mr James Black Malcolm, died at his residence yesterday .. (in Mt Eden, Auckland). I recall Grandpa telling me that his father used to take part in Irish Protestant marches in Auckland and I think he belonged to an Orangemen's Masonic order as well. Grandpa, I think was a Grand Master but I need to check on this again.
Yes, I came to Australia from NZ when we married. My husband, Arthur, is Sth African and we met at University in Auckland. We are both geographers. Our 2 sons Mark and Andrew, were born here and both are married, one living in Perth with his family, where we also live, and the other, with his family in Houston, Texas. We have five grandsons aged from 4 to 9 years of age. Arthur is a retired academic and we now enjoy retirement to the fullest, having been able to travel while we can - Antarctica and Mongolia.
My great great aunt Lydia Malcolm did indeed marry John Alexander Stewart in Knockbreda Parish Church, Belfast, 23 Sept 1903 at Belfast Register Office before witnesses David Crighton and Mary Orr. John Stewart was shown as a tea merchant of Knockbreda Park, Belfast, son of Rev Henry William Stewart, a Church of Ireland clergyman. Lydia also shown of Knockbreda Park, daughter of Duncan Malcom, wall-paper merchant. But oddly, they were married again on April 5, 1904, at the Church of Ireland parish church of Newtownbreda, Knockbreda by her father (I wonder if this is meant to be by her f in law? - will have to wait until I get the documents) with the Witnesses being Duncan Malcolm and William Stewart. John was shown as 22 and Lydia 32. You get the feeling the registry office marriage did not meet with the approval of Rev Stewart -- or indeed Lydia's father who supposedly was a Plymouth Brethren!
But, But ..... I am also wondering if there was more to it as I think you show a birth of Henry William Basil Stewart in 1903. Could he have been born them prior to or soon after their registry office marriage?
Also an earlier census entry suggests that Lydia was b in 1867, even earlier than her marriage certificate suggests.
I had been told by a Malcolm aunt of mine that Lydia married twice. She did indeed --- but to the same man!!
They married first in a registry office in the City of Belfast in Sept 1903; then again in April 1904, this time with John's father Rev Henry Stewart officiating at his parish church in Knockbreda, Belfast. The other witness to this marriage was Lydia's father, widower Duncan (who one record sent me shows him to be a Plymouth Brethren!! - the rest of his famiy were church of Ireland or Presbyterian from what I know so far). So its looks as tho some respectability was visited upon the couple in 1904. She was a good deal older than John at marriage - he 22 and she 32 (tho maybe even 37 as earlier data suggest). Added to this is a possible son, Henry William Basil born to them in 1903 - but there are no firm dates for this.
The couple's name comes up again on the death certificate for Lydia's father, Duncan Malcolm, at Inverloch/Inverlock, Ballycultra, Belfast in July 1913 when Duncan dies at age 86 and 3/4 yrs (of pneumonia). The name Inverloch is curious because that was where my grandfather told me Duncan Malcolm was born in Scotland (c 1825) -- but I can find no place of that name there (except Inverlochy Castle nr Fort William or Loch Inver on the N West coast of Scotland ). I have also found a James Stewart living at Inverloch, Marino, around the same date -- probably in the same household? (John did have a brother James who married poss after 1913 as he has a son, Joseph, b 1917).
Also confirmed in a copy of Duncan Malcolm’s Will of 1901 was the fact that his daughter Lydia (then still single) was the sole beneficiary and executrix of his estate.
3/1. Henry William Basil Stewart, born 1903,
Married Josephine P. Bottomley
Thu, 25 Oct 2007 From Liz Carnell
I was doing a search of the internet for descendants of William Hyde from Belfast and I've come across William Henry Basil Stewart b 1903 who married Josephine P. Bottomley.
I wonder if you know anything about this couple and whether they had any children? I believe that Josephine many have been the daughter of William Gray Porter Bottomley and his wife Josephine Hyde.
I was told yesterday that one of Josephine Hyde's sisters who married into the Peacocke family adopted a girl called Pat, (born in 1902) after she was orphaned. Josephine Hyde Bottomley died in 1902, perhaps in childbirth so we think perhaps Josephine P. Bottomley is also the orphaned 'Pat'. It seems likely as the cousin who emailed me yesterday said that 'Pat' had married "Basil Stewart".

The Stewart of Killymoon papers comprise c.850 letters and papers, 1761-1845, of the Stewart family of Killymoon Castle, Cookstown, Co. Tyrone, principally of James Stewart of Killymoon, MP for Co. Tyrone, 1768-1812, and his wife, the Hon. Mrs Elizabeth Stewart, Molesworth.
James Stewart was the eldest son of William Stewart of Killymoon and Eleanor King of Rockingham, Co. Roscommon. Shortly before embarking on his long parliamentary career, the young James Stewart did the Grand Tour in Europe. A splendid portrait of him (now in the Ulster Museum) was painted in Italy some time in 1767 by Pompeo Batoni, the highly fashionable painter of foreign visitors to Italy and then at the height of his considerable powers. Early the following year Stewart was reported to have left Turin on his way home. The future 2nd Duke of Leinster (eldest brother of Lord Edward FitzGerald) wrote to his mother in March 1768 describing him as 'a gentlemanlike young man, and also very amiable. I know no gentleman better liked than he has been in every town he has passed through.
Stewart succeeded his father as one of the MPs for Co. Tyrone in 1768, retaining the seat continuously and without a contest for the next thirty-two years in Dublin and a further twelve after 1800 at Westminster. It was said of him that 'without place or pension, one shilling of public money has never found its way into his pocket ... during a period of 44 years'. Most county seats in the Irish Parliament, like most of the boroughs, were dominated by great landowning families. Tyrone was unusual at this period in having a large number of independently minded Presbyterian voters, and its great landowners happened to be a loggerheads. Only when faced by a combination in 1812 was Stewart obliged to retire.
Though he himself was a member of the Protestant Ascendancy, as it came to be called, his father was (and remained) a Presbyterian. This was ironic, in view of the fact that Killymoon and over half the Stewart estate was churchland, held on 21-year leases under the Church of Ireland Archbishop of Armagh. Stewart became one of the leading spokesmen in the Irish Parliament for the northern Presbyterians and was instrumental in promoting legislation to mitigate or remove the penal laws which affected them. In particular, he supported the Act (19 & 20 Geo. III, c.6) that repealed the Test Act for Protestant Dissenters, proposed the Act (21 & 22 Geo. III, c.25) declaring marriages by Presbyterian ministers valid, and helped to secure an increase in the "regium donum", the annual grant to approved Presbyterian clergy. The Presbyterians' regard for him was shown not only by electoral support but also, in the usual fashion of the time, by numerous presentations of silver plate.
Stewart was prominent in the Volunteer movement, from its foundation in the late 1770s to its suppression in 1793. He was the close ally of the Volunteer commander-in-chief, James Caulfeild, 1st Earl of Charlemont, was active at Volunteer meetings and parades, and in September 1783 took the chair at the second great convention of northern Volunteer companies in Dungannon, in preparation for the national meeting in Dublin. After Lord Charlemont's celebrated but still mysterious breach with Grattan in 1783, Stewart became Charlemont's principal spokesman in the House of Commons (thanks to the general inarticulacy of those whom Charlemont returned, after Grattan, for the family borough of Charlemont, Co. Armagh). Like Charlemont, and unlike Grattan, Stewart opposed all political concessions to the Roman Catholics; not until the Union had transferred the Irish representation to Westminster did he come round to support of Catholic Emancipation.
By a curious confusion, Charlemont's letters to Stewart almost all passed into the possession of Stewart's younger brother, Henry Stewart of Tyrcallen, Co. Donegal, and passed down that branch of the family (see PRONI, D/3319); the rest of Stewart's papers passed down the female line through Stewart's daughter, Louisa, who in 1811 married into the Clements family of Ashfield, Co. Cavan, later of Lough Rynn, Co. Leitrim. The papers which passed down the collateral male line have been re-united with those which passed down the direct female line to constitute D/3167/1.
In 1772 Stewart married Elizabeth Molesworth, daughter of the 3rd Viscount Molesworth. She was one of the survivors of a tragic fire in London in 1763, where she was living with her widowed mother. Lady Molesworth, two of her daughters and six of the servants were killed. Two other daughters were badly injured when they jumped from upper windows - one had to have a leg cut off after landing on the railings below - and a third was severely burned. Elizabeth Stewart became in 1794 a co-heiress of her late brother, the 4th Viscount Molesworth, and inherited a share of the Molesworth estates in Dublin City, near Swords, Co. Dublin, and in and around Philipstown, King's County. Another sister, Louisa, was married to William Brabazon Ponsonby, 1st Baron Ponsonby, the leader of the celebrated political 'cousinhood' of that name - a connection which strengthened Stewart's links with the Whig opposition, both before and after the Union.
After the Union, Stewart also formed a friendship with the Prince of Wales which has been much exaggerated in family mythology (although the Prince did at least trouble to condole with Stewart's son and successor, William, on Stewart's death in 1821). Stewart is also popularly reputed to have lost Killymoon to the Prince in an unsuccessful bet. This almost certainly apocryphal incident is not documented in the papers, which do however contain some documentation, 1803-1804, about the early 19th century re-building of Killymoon by John Nash, and about the furnishing of it by Thomas Tatham of London, 1809-1810; there are also earlier letters of architectural interest from Frederick Trench (1795) and Robert Woodgate (1801).
A visit to Killymoon
In 1824, when Stewart's widow and the Stewarts' unmarried son, Colonel William Stewart, were living in Killymoon, they invited their Tyrone neighbour, John Burges, '... to pass a few days at this romantic and most beautiful place [as Burges recorded in his diary (PRONI, T/1282/1, pp.10-13)]. It may be well termed so, for I suppose its equal is not to be found in any country for the most perfect combination of wood, water, mountain and undulation of ground.
My brother and I rode there. ... We arrived at the bridge which spans the widest part of the river, famed for its enormous sycamores. At one side is a long glade, richly wooded at its furthest end. On the other you see the castle, at that time nearly shut out by elms of picturesque forms. We passed the bridge and through fine specimens of the old Irish pines, fir, now no more. We gained the park, and soon found ourselves in the apartments allotted for us. ...
[When the dinner gong sounded, they descended] '... the grand staircase, for grand it is ... . Colonel Stewart took the head of the table, and his venerable mother the foot, a lady of the old school, so clever, so agreeable, such a one is not to be seen now, so kind, so anxious to please, so dignified, with the greatest good nature. William Stewart was the Sir Charles Grandison of the day, what some would call fine, but fineness was natural to him and it did not sit unseemly on him. He had the softest voice and the gentlest manner, and with all the courage and prowess of a hero. His gallantries as a man of fashion are well known, the only portion of his character I wish to veil over...
The following morning we lionised this magnificent place. Every walk and drive brought us into new features. The extensive gardens, celebrated for an enormous pear tree, caught our attention. The length of said tree is something immense. Also, I must not forget the huge Portugal laurel and the larch...;. The silver firs are equal to the most luxuriant [?piceas] in the pinetums of the present day. It would be difficult to find such specimens now. The dark green of the foliage and the thickness of the stems seem as if they belonged to some distant hemisphere. The spruce firs, too, are very fine. The grandeur of the timber, particularly the oaks and sycamore, quite give you the idea of a scene of Claude Lorraine's, and that dark, clear river always running rapidly along [?creates] a scene that perhaps might border, without its cheerful and its darling sound, upon the gloomy.'
Killymoon Castle and the estate were sold on Colonel Stewart's death in 1850.
The (Killymoon) papers
The Stewart Papers comprise c.2,250 documents (including some volumes) and c.25 outsize maps. They derive from the Tyrcallen branch of the Stewarts of Killymoon, Cookstown, Co. Tyrone: in particular, to Henry Stewart of Tyrcallen, Stranorlar, Co. Donegal (1743-1840), younger brother of James Stewart of Killymoon, M.P. for Co. Tyrone, 1768-1812. For further information about the family, see the calendar of the Stewart of Killymoon papers (D/3167), one section of which was also deposited by Mr H.W.B. and Mr G.P. Stewart. For another related collection, see T/3007.
Henry Stewart's wife, Elizabeth, was a daughter of the 2nd Lord Longford and a sister of the Duchess of Wellington. For this reason, some sections of these papers consist of letters to, as well as from, members of the Longford/Pakenham family, 1755-1846. The letters from the Duchess of Wellington run from 1813 to 1831, and there are earlier 'Grand Tour' letters from Mrs Stewart's and her brother, the 2nd Earl of Longford, 1793-1795. Henry Stewart himself was a land agent - perhaps 'accountant' would be a better word - who managed the estate affairs of a number of families, on a basis which was professional by the standards of the day, from an office in Clare Street and then at 6 Leinster Street, Dublin. The bulk of the archive relates to his clients' (and his own) estate and business affairs.
The (Tyrcallen) papers
Probably Rev Frederick William Stewart, died 4/1/1884, admon. 22/2/1884, of Farnham House, Finglas, co Dublin, batchelor, granted to Margaret Reid, (wf of William Reid) of Randlophfield, Stirling, the sister and one of the next of kin.
From Wendy Reid Jan 2003:
My Hamilton descent is from the the 1st Duke of Hamilton. The Hamilton seat of Brownhall in Co. Donegal was founded by John Hamilton, a grandson of the 1st Duke.
He came from the Scottish family whose seat at the time was Broomhill, Lanarkshire. Land in north western Ireland was granted to him and he took possession of lands at Murvagh - just out of Donegal town and near to the coast. The original Brownhall house was built there around 1550 and in 1690 his descendant, James Hamilton, moved the family seat to nearby Ballintra where the present Brownhall house still stands today - and still occupied by the present John Hamilton. The family maintained the old tradition of naming the eldest son after the grandfather, so since then the line has gone John - James - John - James etc, down to John today.
His eldest son is James.
Fortunately, the family has maintained an unbroken line of ownership of the estate down through the centuries. The estate is not as extensive as it had been back in the 1800's due to debts left by my 4th Great Grandfather, John H, but it stands as one of the few estates still remaining in the original family's hands.
The debts were not down to bad management. That particular John H inherited Brownhall just before the Famine and spent a good deal of the family finances on his tenants. He built several churches, instigated Sunday schools, built a workhouse and mills to create employment at the time.
As a result his tenants did not suffer the same fate suffered by so many others.
A book was recently published about this man and I've sent you a link on it.
His daughter, Mary, married Frederick Courbarron, a farmer from Jersey in the Channel Islands. Her son, Augustus James, eventually settled in Australia in 1888 and I descend from him - my GG Grandfather.
This Hamilton family married with several Stewart families, namely the Killymoon Stewarts. Isabella Stewart, daughter of Col. William Stewart (b.1710) of Killymoon, married John Hamilton and their eldest son, James, married Helen Pakenham.
The John Hamilton of the book is the eldest child of the Hamilton/Pakenham marriage.
You have covered this Stewart line quite well in your site.
I had a look at the line of Eleanor King - wife of William Stewart - of Rockingham. Her father, Sir Henry King, was one of those not very well liked by the Irish.
They lived in the town of Boyle, Roscommon, and last year I paid a visit to the house still there. It was destroyed by fire some time ago but has been completely restored and is now a museum to the history of the family and the Earls of Kingston.
I would like to get back there again and tour the place properly as back then I was 8 months and 2 weeks pregnant and found the two hour tour quite a haul! Very informative though - I just remember constantly looking for somewhere to sit down:)).
At the moment one of my missions is to trace back further on the line of the Killymoon Stewarts, one thing I know is that they are connected to the Athenree Stewarts.
In 1999 there was an exhibition at the Ulster Museum featuring William Stewarts son, James and his "Grand Tour" of Europe.
Another family that married with the Brownhall Hamiltons is the Crightons(Creightons) who were the Earls of Erne.
The James Hamilton, who built the present Brownhall house at Ballintra in 1690, married Jane Crighton, daughter of Col. Abraham Crighton. This family were the owners of Crom Castle in Co. Fermanagh and his grandson was the 1st Earl of Erne.
I don't know how much information, if anything, you would like about the Grenfells. I know on my own tree that I rarely go further back than one generation in families who married in, if for no other reason that the amount of information increases very rapidly indeed if you do otherwise. So unless you ask I shan't do anything. We think the Grenfells are an interesting family, with all sorts of adventurers. One John Grenfell was killed by bush rangers in Australia, but it led the the arrest and conviction of the outlaws, so in honour of him they gave the township of Emu Creek the new name of Grenfell. There's Lord Grenfell, of course (not close enough to me ...), and Sir Wilfred, who was my father's first cousin.
If you like, I can send you the section of my family tree relating to the Hamiltons ?.
I have the entire tree on disc - its huge going back to the 1200's - but haven't run it on the computer since I arrived here from Australia in Feb last year.
