McGregor/Stewart Comrie / Balquhidder

Post by paulpesda » Sat Jul 29, 2017 11:11 pm

I’m trying to find out more about the family of William McGregor (1850-1910) and in particular his wife, Christina Stewart (1853-1929) who was born in Comrie and died in North Wales, where her husband was a gamekeeper for the Drummond Willoughby Estate.

Her parents were Alexander Stewart (b.c.1829) and Janet Stewart (b.c.1829 in Balquhidder). They were married in Balquhidder on the 23 March 1850, before moving to Comrie, where they settled in Dalginross.They had several children, the oldest son being John Stewart (b.1846) who seems to have farmed Brae of Fordie all his life. As he was born in Balquhidder before his ‘parents’ were married, he could be illegitimate. As I don’t know the name of Janet’s parents, I can’t work out where she lived in 1841.

Do you know anything more about this branch of the Stewarts of Balquhidder?
Thank you
