The Descendants of Reverend Charles Stewart and Amice Campbell

First Generation

1. Reverend Charles STEWART [3577], son of Archibald STEWART [4339] and Alice CAMPBELL [5557], was born in 1683 in Campbeltown, Argyllshire, SCO, UK and died on 2 Apr 1765 in Campbeltown, Argyllshire, SCO, UK aged 82.

General Notes: Charles was licensed by the Presbytery of Kintyre on January 28, 1708 and he was ordained in his one and only charge, the Highland Kirk of Campbeltown, on May 5, 1709. He presided over his congregation for fifty-five years.

The REV. CHARLES STEWART OF CAMPBELTOWN (1683-1765)

Another Kintyre/Blackhall Connection?

By George H Sturt (Excerpted)

In reviewing the challenge to find the 17th century forebears of the Rev. Charles Stewart of Campbeltown, in our case a quest of nearly thirty years, on and off, we have not been able to ignore the tradition that persistently points to a Blackhall connection. We have looked at possibilities from both the Kintyre end and the Blackhall/Ardgowan end. The magnificent and detailed restoration of the stone Blackhall house in Paisley, under the leadership of Mr.Alex Strachan, makes this project somehow even more relevant. We refer to the excellent article in the 1990 issue of the Stewart Magazine, by Janet S Bolton, The Place of Blackhall - the story of eight centuries. Those were turbulent times in Scottish history, when your loyalties sometimes cost you your life or livelihood, if the plague did not get there first. Good documentation is hard to find.

We, some of Rev. Charles' descendents, pay tribute to the untiring efforts and friendship of the late Ian (A.I.B.) Stewart of Campbeltown, who has painstakingly retrieved copies of many precious documents from the Records Office in Edinburgh, and in Kintyre, and assisted us in numerous ways, as have Ian's family. He is sorely missed by many on both sides of the Atlantic. "We" are Betty Lou Pfohl, Douglas Smith, and the author of this article.

We acknowledge the contributions from Rosemary Bigwood, one of Scotland's eminently recognized genealogical researchers, who has spent long hours poring over dusty manuscripts in Latin to track down and extract sasines, testaments, etc.

There are others such as Phyllis Stewart Guiver who have pioneered much research into Kintyre's Stewarts, and, recently, Alexander Donald Stewart ("History of the Glassary Stewarts") with whom we have made contact.

We have contacted the Shaw-Stewarts of Ardgowan on occasions, and thank the Baronet and his family for the courtesies received from them. We have reviewed the inventory of their Stewart archival documents lodged at the Mitchell Library, Glasgow."

Charles married Annabella CAMPBELL [3578] [MRIN: 1156] on 26 Mar 1717 in Argyllshire, SCO, UK, daughter of John CAMPBELL [3579] and Elizabeth McNEIL [3580]. Annabella was born about 1691 in Kildalloig, Campbelltown, Argyllshire, SCO, UK and died on 11 Mar 1779 aged about 88.

Children from this marriage were:

2 F i. Ann STEWART [4798] .

3 M ii. Archibald STEWART [4336] was born about 1718.

General Notes: He became a surgeon. He never married and he died at a relatively early age. It would be in accordance with Scottish tradition for him to be called afer his paternal grandfather who was the Tacksman of the Drum.

+ 4 F iii. Elizabeth STEWART [3582] was born about 1720.

5 F iv. Alice STEWART [4337] was born about 1722.

She never married and had no children

+ 6 F v. Mary STEWART [3583] was born about 1724.

+ 7 M vi. Chief Justice Peter STEWART [1490] was born in 1725 in SCO, UK, died on 10 Nov 1805 in Charlottetown, PE, CAN aged 80, and was buried on 13 Nov 1805 in Charlottetown, PE, CAN.

8 M vii. Charles STEWART [3585] was born on 28 Mar 1728.

9 M viii. Lieut. Col. Robert STEWART [3584] was born in 1729 in Kintyre, SCO, UK and died in 1809 in Hamstead, Middlesex, ENG, UK aged 80.

Birth Notes: He was a younger brother of Peter.

Death Notes: Robert Stewart never married and his will made in 1806 is a sensitive and benevolent document and as such it is presented here in its entirety:

The Will of Lt. Col. Robert Stewart

General Notes: He saw service in America with the British Army during the Seven Years War (1755-1763) and retired with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. In 1767, when grants of Townships and parts of Townships in St. John's Island were made by the British Government, Lt. Col. Stewart was granted one-half of Township No. 18. He may have visited the Island but did not live there. In 1774 he learned that John Duport, the first Chief Justice of St. John's Island, had died in January of that year, leaving vacant the office of Chief Justice. In December of the same year, through the Earl of Warwick, Lt. Col. Stewart petitioned the British Government to appoint his brother, Peter Stewart of Campbelltown, to the vacant office. This request was granted and early in 1775, Peter was appointed second Chief Justice of St. John's Island. On 21 Apr 1775, Robert conveyed one-third of his half Township 18 to his brother Peter. This was the only land held by Peter on the Island when he arrived. He was not an original grantee of any land on the Island.

From T.W. Stewart's file notes: He was said to have been a storekeeper in Virginia. He fought in the French and Indian War and was a friend of George Washington.

along with his son John to the early history of the Island.

Second Generation (Children)

4. Elizabeth STEWART [3582] (Charles (Reverend) 1) was born about 1720.

Elizabeth married Rev. Robert THOMSON [9483] [MRIN: 3283].

The child from this marriage was:

+ 12 F i. Margaret THOMSON [9484] died on 6 Sep 1832.

6. Mary STEWART [3583] (Charles (Reverend) 1) was born about 1724.

Mary married Dr. George ROBERTSON [4338] [MRIN: 1436] on 20 Sep 1751.

General Notes: The full implication of Mr. Boes' efforts to have the Lowland Congregation recognised officially only became known on his death. The Duke of Argyll, as principal heritor had the appointment of the new minister in his hands and he presented Mr. John McAlpine, a Highlander, to the Lowland Charge. This was deeply resented by the congregation and hostility between congregation and minister flared up and it was not till shortly before Mr. McAlpine's death in Edinburgh following his attendance at the assembly, that any sort of reconciliation took place. But the dispute over patronage immediately developed into open war. Almost incredibly the Duke, without any consultation, foisted another unwelcome incumbent. This was George Robertson, who had come to the town as a schoolmaster, become ordained and assistant in the Highland Church to Mr. Stewart whose daughter Mary he married. Only three members, including the Duke's Chamberlain signed the call to Dr. Robertson, as he subsequently became, and the most bitter opposition resulted in 1766 in the great bulk of the congregation seceding to form a Relief Congregation.

The child from this marriage was:

13 F i. Annabella ROBERTSON [4346] .

7. Chief Justice Peter STEWART [1490] (Charles (Reverend) 1) was born in 1725 in SCO, UK, died on 10 Nov 1805 in Charlottetown, PE, CAN aged 80, and was buried on 13 Nov 1805 in Charlottetown, PE, CAN.

General Notes:

Excerpts from the Stewart Family File, compiled by Nina C. Ross:

"Peter Stewart was descended from a branch of the Stewarts of Blackhall in Renfrewshire, Scotland.

Of his life in Scotland we know but little. When young he studied law but the details are scanty. He became a writer in Campbelltown and later the Provost of the town.

With two partners he engaged in the herring fishing industry and it may have been in connection with this business that he became a merchant there. This business failed and left Peter with a considerable debt.

Appointment to office in the colonies always involved much preparation and expense on the part of the recipient. Peter Stewart's personal and business affairs had to be settled. In August 1775 he made an Assignment of £60 to be paid annually from his salary to his creditors in order to pay off his debt. He prepared ready for shipping, building supplies, bedding, clothing, utensils, a year's supply of food, etc. It was fall before Peter left Scotland to take up his new position in America.

On or about the 10th of September 1775, Peter Stewart, his second wife, some of his children, servants, etc., with a few settlers boarded the "Elizabeth" with Capt. Russell, at Cork, Ireland, for St. John's Island in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. They arrived there two months later.

The north shore of the Island, where they found themselves, is and was not noted for its gentle breezes and calm waters. Their first night saw them blown out to sea again and it was some days before they attempted to land. The force of the wind and waves lifted their small vessel through the breakers on to the long sand bank which lay along the shore. Most of the cargo was lost with the supplies of the passengers. The date was November 6th.

It was an inauspicious arrival for the new Chief Justice. In a Memorial to the Board of Trade & Plantations dated October 1781, Peter Stewart claimed his loss to have been £1500.

Peter and his family spent the winter somewhere in the vicinity but the location is indefinite. The story that they lived in tents during the winter is doubtful. Men were available on the Island well able to build a log hut and there was no lack of trees. It was spring before the party finally arrived in Charlottetown, the little Capital of the Island. Peter was sworn into office 25 Jun 1776. There Peter lived until his death, with nothing found to suggest he ever returned to Scotland.

In his new life Peter Stewart had his problems, some of his own doing and some of his relatives' and in-laws'. Life on St. John's Island during those years of the Revolution was a matter of keeping body and soul together. With the coming of quieter years, conditions improved but money always was in short supply. Like others before and after him, Peter came to the Island in debt and never got out of it. Those in public office found the necessity to keep up some degree of appearance on a meagre and often non-existent salary to be beyond their achievement. It was a time of "each for his own".

Peter and his family were not inclined to compromise. Through the years many lawsuits in the Island Courts involved him and his children."

Peter married Helen MACKINNON [2598] [MRIN: 483] on 10 Jan 1758, daughter of John MACKINNON [3592] and Margaret MACLEOD [4433]. Helen died about 1770 in SCO, UK.

Death Notes: SUMMERSIDE JOURNAL July 12, 1888.

July 11, 1829: Death of Sarah Hamilton, relict of late Chief Justice Stewart.

Burial Notes: Catholic Pioneer Cemetery at St. Andrews.

General Notes: Excerpt from Lecture delivered by the Very Reverend Dr. Daniel MacDonald in the Market Hall on Thursday, January 27, 1881.

"I am indebted to the late Mrs. Irving, daughter of Chief Justice Stewart, for some few scraps of correspondence between Father MacDonald and her mother, Sarah Hamilton Stewart, on the subject of immigration to this Island while Father MacDonald was doing missionary work in Drummond, before coming out here. Mrs. Stewart, who was a pious and exemplary lady, was among the circle of his acquaintances.

When her husband received the appointment of judge for this little colony, she very naturally wrote to Father MacDonald for information respecting the state of the colony. Although we may well suppose that the devoted priest would like to have a few persons of Mrs. Stewart's high accomplishments and well-known piety added to his little community, yet he honestly and sincerely advised her by all means not to come and if possible, to prevail upon her husband to decline the appointment.

Notwithstanding this advice Chief Justice Stewart came to the Island shortly after, and for many years he and his son, the late Captain Stewart of Mount Stewart, called after him, exercised considerable influence in the Colony.

Sarah Hamilton Stewart was born of non-Catholic parents. Her father, Captain Hamilton, was killed in the Battle of Fontenoy the 30th of April, 1745, and his wife, who happened to be on the continent at the time with her two daughters, mere children, formed the acquaintance of a community of nuns, through whose influence she became a Catholic, and to whom she entrusted the education of her two daughters. Some time after her return to Scotland, Sarah was married to Stewart, who had a family by a previous marriage. Mrs. Stewart did not receive the kindest treatment from her husband and step-children out here, but she persevered to the last, and died as she had lived, a good exemplary Catholic and was buried in the Catholic cemetery at St.Andrew's."

Children from this marriage were:

Death Notes: Halifax, Nova Scotia 6th February 1804

Sir

As I presume you cannot be altogether unacquainted with the sincere regard I have had for your sons Ralph & James, from my first knowledge of them some years since - and that a mutual Correspondence (since they were dispersed to various parts of the world) has been kept up between us - Therefore you have no doubt, expected that if any Occurrence should take place, concerning their welfare; that I would communicate it to their family. - Your Son Ralph, and my dear friend - it pleased the Almighty Ruler of Heaven & Earth to deprive us us, some time since - but it was then a Consolation to us, that his brother James was spared ---- and we flatter'd our selves - that after some few years spent in the Service of his King and Country; he would return and be the Joy and Comfort of his relatives; and pleasure to those who regarded him - But the ways of Providence, are not as Man's ! - His ways are immutable and Past finding out ! And though we are poor weak Mortals, can have no Conception with regard to his Decrees - Yet we must submit to it - and say in the Language of True Piety - " Thy Will be done !" - It is with grief of heart that I have to communicate to you a most unpleasing - and certainly must be a most Sorrowful piece of News to you. ---- That of the your worthy son James - My Pen seems reluctant to perform its Office in the disclosure of the sad Tale - but as the Colonel of the Regiment, has laid upon me this melancholy Task - I could not, however painful, I am sure, it must be to your feelings - with hold the Knowledge of it from you - Poor Young Man ! he was taken off in the Prime of Life. - and it must be said suddenly, and by an Unforeseen Accident - but I will transcribe the Colonel's letter to me - which is as follows. - vis..

St. Lucia, August 25th. 1803 -

Sir

Having been, as I am informed, the friend and acquaintance of him, who is the subject of this Letter; I have taken to request of you to communicate the death of Lt. James C. Stewart to his Parents. -

His death was caused by a most uncommon Accident. He was at an Out Post near the Morne; and was out Fowling; and happened in pursuing his game to tread upon a Serpent, which instantly bit him in the Calf of his Leg; and tho' every Physical Precaution was taken by the Surgeon of the Regiment he died in Six hours. - The Surgeon is very skilful in his Profession; having studied in Edinburg for many years.

You will be better able to give Consolation to the Parents than I possibly can -

And you will please to let them know, that his Effects did little more than pay all demands.

I am Sir

(Died 12th Inst.) Your very humble Serv.t

Jn Fr. Farley Lt. Col. 68 th Reg.

Burial Notes: St. Andrews Pioneer Cemetery.

General Notes: Paper sent to H.R S. by T. E. MacNutt (Oct. 27, 1866 --- copied from Notre Dame Annals).

Mrs. Irving, 86 years of age, the only Catholic of a large Protestant family, a person of fine noble qualities has been asking of us for a long time the favor to end her days at Notre Dame. On account of lack of space we regretted not to be able to grant her request but promised her room in the new building when it was finished. However, as she feared, on account of her advanced age, that her days were few we ceded to her wish and placed our Community Room at her disposal.

Her Autobiography:

I have been requested to give statement of my family connection but I know very little about them and regret that I did not obtain more information from my mother which she could have given clearly and distinctly from proceeding generations. All I recollect is that my mother was a lineal descendant of Robert Bruce, the celebrated king of Scotland, who having no son, married his daughter to the Lord --- Steward of Scots from whom descended the kings of Scotland and England of the name of Steward; from this family my father was lineal descendant. It was so well understood that when his father was at College he met a friend one morning who wished to console with him on the death of his cousin: My grandfather said he had not heard of any deaths in the family; his friend replied: Have you not heard that the Queen's dead? Queen Ann of Scotland and England. Sir Walter Scott says in his writings that the Black Hall family of Steward, which was my father's were the nearest to the throne. Thus both these royal families meet in me and die in me, as I have no child. My mother was first cousin to the gallant Sir Ralph Abercrombie who was killed in Egypt. Their mothers were sisters, daughters of Dundas of Mannor, and nearly related, being first cousin to the Earl of Elgin whose name was Bruce, descendant of King Robert Bruce above named. My father was nearly 30 years Chief Justice of P.E.I. but from old age resigned and retired on a pension. My father's name was Steward,

Mary Dundas Bishop Irving, Widow.

(Jan, 1872 --- copied from Notre Dame Annals). Mrs. Irving, aged 93 years, died on 14th January in the old convent. She edified us all by her strong spirit of faith and great simplicity. Her remains were taken to St. Andrews, near Mt. Stewart. The pupils of Notre Dame sang at the High Mass which was celebrated in the Cathedral and received Holy Communion for the repose of her soul.

Death Notes: 10 Feb 1892, Moncton, The Times:

Charlottetown, P.E.I., Feb. 8 - Theophilus STEWART died last night age 95. He was the oldest lawyer in Canada. Admitted to the bar June 29, 1826, he practiced for some years in Nfld. and then returned to his native land in 1848. He was of a family of ten sons and four daughters, children of Chas. STEWART, fifth Attorney General, who was a son of Peter STEWART, deceased, Chief Justice of the Island. His mother was a sister of Rev. Theophilus DESBRISAY, first Rector of the the parish of Charlottetown and a d/o Thos. DESBRISAY, first colonial secretary of the Province and at one time Administrator of government. Deceased was for many years Indian commissioner, but since being injured in a railway accident here 12 years ago has been unable to perform his duties. He has led a secluded life, devoting himself to deeds of charity.

Burial Notes: Sherwood Cemetery.

General Notes: He was a lawyer and the Indian Commissioner for PEI along with Henry Palmer.

Excerpt from The Island Magazine, Number 28, Fall/Winter Issue 1990, page 4 & 5:

"The Indian Commissioners

The 1854 Journal of the Legislative Assembly records an allocation of £7 to three needy families, the money to be "granted and placed in the hands of the Indian Commissioners."

The brief notation is the first known mention of Indian Commissioners in government records. Not until the following year does the Journal identify the Commissioners as Theophilus Stewart and Henry Palmer. How long the two had been Commissioners is unknown, though their absence from earlier journals suggest their prior significance was negligible.

It is appropriate that Theophilus Stewart would appear with such little fanfare in the role of Micmac spokesman, a position he wold hold for the next 25 years. Little is known of Stewart and there is little mention of him in contemporary newspaper accounts - a surprising fact considering he was a member of the small island elite. His father was Charles Stewart, attorney general from 1810 to 1813 and a leading member of the local family compact. His mother, Mary Desbrisay, was the daughter of the former lieutenant governor. When Charles Stewart died in January 1813, leaving his wife and 12 children in a state of pernury, Theophilus was not yet 15.

Like his father, the younger Stewart took up law. In 1826, he joined the Island bar. After a stint in Newfoundland, he opened a practice in Charlottetown, where he would spend the rest of his days. Like his father, Stewart shunned the limelight; unlike his sire, a consummate political string-puller, he appears to have avoided politics. He was a bachelor who lived a quiet life of which little today is known."

Burial Notes: Old Protestant Burying Ground

General Notes: With her father and step-mother and brothers and sisters, Margaret, at age thirteen, left Cork, Ireland aboard a small vessel, the "Elizabeth," for Prince Edward Island. The journey took two months and ended badly. The ship was wrecked in a storm and the party was washed ashore on the north side of Prince Edward Island. Most of the cargo was lost but the family survived the hardships. It was spring when they arrived in Charlottetown where they made their home. Margaret married the Reverend Theophilus DesBrisay on 12 August 1778, when she was sixteen years old.

Margaret married Reverend Theophilus DESBRISAY [1436] [MRIN: 466] on 12 Aug 1778 in Charlottetown, PE, CAN, son of Lt. Gov. Thomas de la Cour DESBRISAY [1458] and Ellen LANDERS [1459]. Theophilus was born on 9 Oct 1754 in Thurles, Tipperary, IRE, UK, died on 14 Mar 1823 in Charlottetown, PE, CAN aged 68, and was buried on 19 Mar 1823 in Charlottetown, PE, CAN.

Marriage Notes: "In the year 1778 he married Margaret Stewart the eldest daughter of the Honorable Chief Justice Stewart, of a younger branch of the Ancient House of Blackhall and Ardgowan, who, from the flattering representations of the then State of the Colony, was induced to leave Scotland, at a great personal Sacrifice, to assume the Judicial office."

18. Penelope STEWART [3193] (Peter (Chief Justice) 2, Charles (Reverend) 1) was born in 1764 in Campbeltown, Argyllshire, SCO, UK, died in 1846 in Darnley, Lot 18, PE, CAN aged 82, and was buried in Malpeque, PE, CAN.

Burial Notes: Peoples Cemetery.

Penelope married James "Jamey" M'NUTT [3194] [MRIN: 1046] about 1783 in PE, CAN. Jamey was born in 1760 in IRE, UK, died on 3 Feb 1835 in Darnley, Lot 18, PE, CAN aged 75, and was buried in Malpeque, PE, CAN.

Burial Notes: Malpeque People's Cemetery.

General Notes: He arrived in PEI in 1781 as private secretary to Governor Walter Patterson.

P.E.I. Royal Gazette: James first worked for Gov. Walter Patterson during the land auction scandal and was the middleman in many of the transactions; however, it seems he was not prosecuted with the others - having married Chief Justice Stewart's daughter before the trial may have had some bearing in this.

His next venture was a marine supplies store, backed by his father in law, and with a partner Walter Berry, at Grande Rustico, PEI. It was here that his first four children were born, the store failed and court records show that Peter Stewart bore much of the loss.

In 1789 Jamie and Penelope built a large new home (with attached Customs Office) in Lower Darnley, Lot 18, on a parcel of land that was gifted to Penelope by her father, this was land that had been seized from Col. Allanby, (the area was known as Allanby Point at the time) and resold in the land sale, and it was many years before James earned legal title thereto.

It is interesting to note that this huge house was well enough built to survive the elements for over 200 years - the last section finally collapsed in 1996. Could this home have been legally owned by the customs outright? Why was it later sold to an Anglican Bishop from St. Eleanors? This office building may have been a registering and monitoring center for some of the convicts at the time shipped out to the Colonies, to work out their sentences (3-7 yrs.) it is recorded that many remained when their sentences expired, and became model citizens.

Penelope came to Canada at age 11 with her Father and his new bride on the ship "Elizabeth". As they neared their destination, Malpeque Bay, P.E.I. in a fall storm, the ship went aground and broke up - all aboard were able to swim to shore tied to a line from the wrecked ship and no lives were lost. They spent 16 days thereafter on a small sandbar with little protection before being rescued.

From the book "Pathways to the Present"

"STEWART, DUGALD "ESQUIRE"

Stewart is a surname which is synonomous with the origins of Hamilton. Not only were the Stewarts among the early settlers of the community, but as close relatives to Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Stewart, one of the original proprietors of Lot 18, the family gained title to all of the land which is encompassed by Hamilton.

Dugald Stewart (1759-1842) was the third son of Robert and Annabella Stewart, the latter being a sister of the aforementioned Lieutenant-Colonel Stewart and also of Peter Stewart, the second Chief Justice of PEI. Dugald immigrated to the Island with his parents in 1770 from Campbeltown, Argyllshire, Scotland, on the barque Annabella. Dugald's mother, Annabella, was given one-sixth of Lot 18 by Lieutenant-Colonel Robert, and Dugald, in turn, in 1811 received some 2511 acres in Hamilton from Annabella. From this large estate Dugald sold land to others in the community.

Dugald Stewart, who in 1797 married Elizabeth Craig (1779-1851), daughter of William and Kennedy (Copeland) Craig of Princetown, was known as Dugald "Esquire." This appellation was to differentiate him from two other Dugald Stewarts, none of which are known to have been related. The three Dugalds were the heads of families living a short distance from each other on the Shipyard Road. Dugald farmed but also had business interests, as a partner of his brothers, Matthew and James, in the Gaspe area and for a time was resident there. Dugald and Elizabeth had twelve children."

Dugald married Elizabeth CRAIG [3828] [MRIN: 1237] on 21 Dec 1797, daughter of William CRAIG [5811] and Kennedy COPELAND [5812]. Elizabeth was born in 1779 in Princetown, St. John's Island, CAN, died on 9 Nov 1851 aged 72, and was buried in Malpeque, PE, CAN.

Death Notes: Death of Lieut. Col. Peter Desbrisay Stewart, from Pollard's Historical Sketches, p. 197 - 198.

The next death to record is that of the late Adjutant General Lieut. Colonel Peter D. Stewart, which sad event took place on November 1st, 1867, at his residence, Spring Park. Colonel Stewart was born in Charlottetown in 1785, where his days ended at the age of eighty-two years. At the age of fourteen he obtained a commission in the Royal Artillery, and as an officer of that regiment first performed garrison duty in the fortification of his native town. England being at war, young Stewart was present with the armament against Copenhagen in 1807. After a long service he retired from the army and returned to the land of his birth. Here on the retirement of Colonel Swabey, as the Adjutant General of Militia in 1859, Colonel Stewart received that appointment, in which he served to the period of his death. In connection with the venerable gentleman's journey through this life, we shall mention a most melancholy accident which happened in the year 1829. During that period, Captain Stewart was on garrison duty with his battery at Halifax, N.S., while Mrs. Stewart and family were passing the winter and spring at Charlottetown. On the 15th May, the family at the usual hour having retired to rest in apparent security from trouble, were awakened from their repose by the loud barking of their dog; in ascertaining the cause of this, the house was discovered to be on fire. The alarm being given the inmates were instantly removed in safety, except a little girl aged nine. Thereupon a noble minded boy, aged twelve, under the impulse of affection rushed into the burning house in order to save his sister and bring her forth, but sad to relate - both were consumed in the devouring flames..

A memorial plaque displayed on the rear wall of St. Paul's Anglican Church in Charlottetown reads:

"In Memory of

LIEUT. COL. PETER DESBRISAY STEWART,

Who died Nov 1st, 1867. Aged 83 years. He entered the army at an early age in the Royal Artillery Woolwich, serving with distinction at Copenhagen, West Indies, North American Colonies, and Ireland, when having attained the rank of Lieut. Col. he retired from the service, and returned to this Island where he held the appointment of Adjutant General of the Militia & Volunteers, applying himself with zeal and ability to the reconstruction of the defensive forces of his native land. The deceased was eldest son of Attorney General Stewart, and grandson of Chief Justice Stewart of this Island. This record of departed worth is erected by his family as a tribute to the memory of an indulgent parent, an efficient and devoted officer, and a warm hearted generous citizen. He will ever be remembered with affectionate regard."

Land Proprietor/Estate Manager

Established the Strathgartney Homestead in 1863

The Stewart family of London, England, and Prince Edward Island was one of the largest land-owning families in the history of land proprietorship on PEI. The patriarch, David Stewart, was born in 1769 in Loch Katrine, Scotland. He was trained as a land surveyor and became a successful land agent. He married Martha Mann Hill and had one child, Robert Bruce Stewart, born in London in 1813. As early as 1908, David Stewart began purchasing land in Prince Edward Island and by the 1830's, the Stewarts had purchased Lots 7, 10, 12, and 30 as well as parts of Lots 27, 46, and 47. The Stewart family shared their Great Russell Street home in London with Robert Stewart, David's brother and partner. Robert died in January 1846.

David's son Robert Bruce received much of his education in the Arts and Sciences independently but was trained as a land agent and surveyor by his father. In London on 27 June 1838, Robert Bruce married Helen Birnie, daughter of the Prince Edward Island merchant, George Birnie. Robert Bruce, along with his wife and their five children left Britain on 29 August 1846 to settle in Charlottetown, PEI. In 1863, Robert Bruce moved his family, now including nine children, to a country estate called Strathgartney on the Stewart property in Lot 30. Upon his father's death in 1852, Robert Bruce Stewart became the largest resident proprietor on PEI, owning more than 67,000 acres. He was one of the key players in the Land Question on PEI, fighting long and hard against the Land Purchase Act by which the government would purchase all large land holdings from the proprietors which were to be sold to tenants. In February 1876, Robert Bruce was forced to sell all but 500 acres of his vast estate to the PEI government. Thereafter, Robert Bruce left his Strathgartney home and retired to Charlottetown where he lived with his second wife, Harriet Amelia Mayne, whom he married 7 December 1876. Robert Bruce Stewart died in Charlottetown 9 May 1884.

His full story may be found in the Island Magazine (Spring/Summer 1987) in the article Robert Bruce Stewart And The Land Question.

Death Notes: DEATH - DAVID BUCHAN STEWART

St. Paul's Church Weekly Bulletin, Jan. 4, 1948.

In the recent Home Call of Mr. D.B. Stewart in his Ninety-first year, St. Paul's has lost one of her oldest and most devoted members. The late Mr. Stewart was a life-long member of St. Paul's Church. His love of Christ's Church was evidenced by his regular attendance at the Services. His custom was to attend every Sunday Morning and Evening. Though several months before his death he suffered from ill-health, yet he endeavoured to attend his Church and was present the Sunday before God called him to higher service. His love for his Church, and his devotion to it stands as a glowing example to all members of St. Paul's.

To his bereaved sons and all members of the family we extend our sincerest sympathy.

125. Helen Olympia STEWART [4417] (Henry 1st Ceylon Regt. (Captain) 4, John 3, Peter (Chief Justice) 2, Charles (Reverend) 1) was born from circa 1809 to 1810 in Trincomalee, India and died on 12 Jan 1885 in Gloucestershire, ENG, UK aged about 75.

General Notes: (story by Kim Burgess) "I tell the story of Helen Olympia with the known facts in print. Unfortunately no family information survived to my generation, so comment is only my assumption based on the facts.

Helen Olympia Stewart was born in Ceylon (not "the hub of the empire" in the early 1800's) and her father died when she was very young, but fortune favoured her during her teenage years by virtue of her mother's second marriage to Sir James Edward Colebrooke in 1820 (a provisional member of Council at Bengal). It was here in the "centre of Society" in India that Helen Olympia meets Lt. Col. John Hunter Littler and they marry in 1827. Over the next 24 years Helen Olympia lives the life of a celebrated officer's wife, but at the same time produces a family of 9 children. It was to her advantage that she was born into the heat of Asia, which no doubt helped her for daily life in India; although some relief from the heat would have been obtained in the higher regions around Cherrapoonji, where a number of their children were christened.

Life in India comes to a close in 1851 when the couple retire to England. While Sir John owns property in Hampshire they decide to settle in Devon near the town of Buckfastleigh at a property called "Bigadon".

It is unfortunate that they arrive after the 1851 census, because it would have given a good snapshot of the family which by 1861 has dispersed to a great extent. There is no record of the family until the latter part of the 1850's, when times become tumultuous for Helen Olympia; with the loss of her eldest daughter Diana in January 1856 and Sir John himself in February of that year. Then over the following two years she does battle with her daughter Mary Anne, siding with her son-in-law in a bitter divorce case. It may be that Helen Olympia was a staunch lady of the Victorian era, and that she couldn't condone thoughts of a divorce. Her daughter was equally strong minded however, and the end result was that Helen Olympia banished Mary Anne from the home. Helen Olympia was also to take custody of Mary Anne's children; Ada (5) and Mary (3). Then in 1859 Helen Olympia loses her eldest son Robert.

By the beginning of the new decade, Helen Olympia is resident at "Bigadon" and the 1861 Census shows her with a new husband Thomas Cokayne (a property manager), her two youngest children; John (20) and Flora (11). Interestingly her granddaughter Mary Ling (5) is also there listed as an "orphan" (her father Major Ling died in 1860, but her mother Mary Anne was very much alive in New Zealand). This is the last record of Mary Ling and her fate is unknown.

The census results of 1871 and 1881 record Helen Olympia and her husband moving to Gloucestershire, the 1871 Census with her granddaughter Ada Ling (18) and the 1881 with her daughter Flora and with Flora's children (3 boys). There is no further record of John Mount Stewart Littler.

In 1881/82 Helen's daughter Mary Anne returns to England from New Zealand with her family. It is unclear whether there is some form of reconciliation, however Mary Anne and her husband add the name Stewart to their surname (hence Croker-Stewart) and all her children drop the Croker surname and become Stewarts. Whether this was some arrangement with Helen Olympia to continue the Stewart name is sadly pure conjecture.

Helen Olympia's eventful life came to a close in 1885. The Stroud Journal of 17 Jan 1885 records her death on the 12th of that month."

Helen married Lt. General Sir John Hunter LITTLER GCB [4418] [MRIN: 1463] on 25 Jun 1827, son of Thomas LITTLER [10091] and Diana HUNTER [10092]. John was born on 6 Jan 1783 in Tarvin, Cheshire, ENG, UK and died on 18 Feb 1856 in Devonshire, ENG, UK aged 73.

Death Notes: THE LATE GENERAL LITTLER. -- The late Lieutenant-General Sir John Hunter Littler, G.C.B., whose death took place at his seat, Bigadon, in Devonshire, on the 18th inst., was one of the most distinguished officers in the East India Company's service.

In 1828 he became a Lieutenant-Colonel, and commanded a division at the battle of Moodkee, in 1845. In the following year he was appointed a Provisional Member of Council in India, and became President of the Council, and Deputy-Governor of Bengal in 1849. He was also colonel of the 36th Bengal Native Infantry. His appointment as Governor he recently resigned, and, returning to England, lived in retirement in Bigadon.
