My great x 3 grandmother was Mary Stuart born Appin, Argyle about 1811. Married to Archibald Blair about 1825. They lived in Alloa, Clackmannanshire (where he was born) and had my gx2 grandmother Christina in Alloa about 1828. Family moved to Dunbarton (north of Glasgow) by 1841 census and work in wool industry. Christina marries John McHaffie at Dunbarton in 1851 and have son William in 1854. Archibald, Mary immigrated to New Brunswick, Canada through Boston in 1853. John and Christina with William follow.
Dont't know when Mary Stuart died in New Brunswick.

Dear Stephen
I have just decided to google the Appin Stewart clan & came across your entry.Through the genesreunited site a few years ago I was able to contact 2 remote cousins in Scotland & was thus able to expand my research.My Grandfather was Donald Stewart-MacInnes & his Mother was an Appin Stewart.We have followed her family back to 1700. In 1963 & 2002 I spent some time in Oban & visited Appin several times.Castle Stalcair(Stalker) was built as a hunting lodge for their kinsman King James but after his death they lost it to the Campbells.The French spelling of the name is incorrect, it should always be Stewart as they were the descendants of Walter, High Steward of Scotland who married the daughter of Robert the Bruce. Steward becoming Stewart.

Hi Stephen,
I am tracking my great grandmother through New Brunswick back to Scotland and found your post. My GGM was Christine (Chrissie) Stewart. She arrived To Canada on the Hesperia. 7/1911 to join her sister Mary Ann Paterson who was married to Edward Paterson. They were Catholic. Any information you may have would be lovely!

Thanks Elyse

The immigration record from 1911 you quote is a Mrs. Christine Stewart who is travelling to Toronto to join her husband who operates a sawmill. Is that correct? I found Edward and Mary Ann (Stewart) Paterson and have his death record from 1943 in Bathurst, NB. She died in 1974 - not public access at the PANB site. I have their marriage record from 26 Sep 1914 in Fredericton - and the Bathurst death record from their son Colin Stewart Paterson who was born in 1913 in Fredericton. I think I have found the Harry James Stewart family in Inverness in the 1881 Scotland Census. Harry was born about 1843 in Tenadry, Perthshire, wife was an Ann Chilsolm born about 1853 in Urray, Invernessshire. But I can't seem to find them after 1881. Christine, I assume, was born after 1881?

It is the Bathhust family, Mary Ann is her sister, about eleven years older. Christine was born circa 1892/93 (grandmothers birth certificate: lists her age as 28 in 1921 and place of birth as Inverness). So I miss the 1891 census and I havent been able to access the 1901 yet. I will look into the areas you've mentioned. I found that death record as well, Colin died in of epilepsy, only 17.
