Stewart of Appin by Gregory James Stewart - written 08/01/2014 01:08:28

Hello ,



 



My name is Gregory James Stewart and I live in Australia. My Great, Grandfather (Donald Stewart) came to Australia from Scotland on a ship called Älloe” in 1850. His brother Duncan had already immigrated to Australia several years earlier. The detail that I have so far are below;



 



                                                                                                                 Allan Stewart



                                                                                                                 b.abt,1749 Appin.



                                                                                                                 d.abt,1812



 



                                                                                           Charles Stewart



                                                                                           b.1769  Appin.



                                                                                           d.abt,1840



                                                              John 1st Stewart                             Effie McColl 



                                                               b. 1785                                         b.



                          Donald Stewart              d. Slumbay,1870



                          Born.1830 Lochcarron.                                Jessie Allen



                          d.1930,Australia.                                         b1765  Kishorn.



                                                               Ann McDonald       d.1855



                                                               b.abt.1803



                                                               d.1894,Slumbay



 



I am looking to find the next link to the Appin Stewarts. Several past members of our family have all mentioned the same story that was handed down to them about Jessie Allen being a maid for the Stewarts of Appin and she fell in love with Charles Stewart. The family refused to allow them to marry so they eloped.Pressumably this is when they went to the Lochcarron area.



If you can help me in any way, even just by passing this on, I would greatly appreciate it,

Greg
