John Stewart, born on 2 June 1833 in Abbey, Paisley, Renfrewshire
John probably died in infancy as missing from the 1841 census for the family when he would have been Aged only 7.
Robert Stewart, born on 12 January 1835 in Abbey, Paisley, Renfrewshire
With the family for the 1841 census and again for the 1851 census recorded as a carter. Nothing more currently known
Jean Stewart was born on 18 April 1837 in Lochwinnoch, Renfrewshire - (probably in Bowfield)
Jean married David Sadler on 16 August 1861 in Neilston, Renfrewshire. David Sadler was born about 1836 in Glasgow, it is believed the son of Robert Sadler, an engineer in a Spinning Mill, and Janet Wallace who were married on 27 April 1835 in Gorbals, Glasgow, Lanarkshire.
David and Jean had the following known children:
For the 1911 census the family were living at 1365 Pollokshaws Road, Langside, Glasgow. Robert died on 29 Dec 1922 in Sudbrook, 130 Nithsdale Road, Pollokshields, Glasgow. Martha died on 20 Feb 1952 in a nursing home although her previous residence was Sudbrook, 130 Nithsdale Road, Pollokshields, Glasgow.
For the 1911 census the family were living at 13 Station Road, Winchmore Hil, Edmonton, London, Middlesex. James died on 19 Jan 1951 in 4 Forster Road, Beckingham, Kent - (Ref: Jan-Mar 1951 Bromley Vol 5b page 87).

For the census of 1871 David, Jean and family were at 112 London Road, Glasgow. As already stated David born 1869 is not recorded in this census and it would see likely that he died in infancy.

She was identified Jeanie Sadler, maiden name Stewart, the widow of David Sadler, a textile worker, and the daughter of Robert Stewart, a textile worker, and Janet Beith (both deceased). The informant was William A Sadler, her son of 59 Queensborourgh Gardens, Glasgow W.
Elizabeth Stewart, born about 1839 in Bowfield, Lochwinnoch, Renfrewshire
Elizabeth married Walter MacDonald on 8 March 1861 in Tradeston, Glasgow. Elizabeth was identified as aged 22, a spinster and a domestic servant, resident at 38 Nelson Street, Tradeston, Glasgow, the daughter of Robert Stewart, Cotton Bleacher, and Janet Stewart, maiden name Beith, neither deceased.

Parish School Teacher, and Mary McDonald, maiden name Davidson, both deceased. The witnesses were Robert Beith and Isabella Stewart.

Elizabeth and Walter had the following known children:
** Note - the brothers, John and Walter, married sisters, Agnes and Harriet.
For the 1861 census the newly weds were living in Govan with Walter working as an Iron Turner.

For the census of 1871 Elizabeth was living at 57/59 Florence Street, Govan, Glasgow with her two sons. She is listed as a widow although no obvious record of his death can be found in the Scottish indexes. It is possible therefore that his death occurred outside Scotland. There is also the possibility that he was not actually dead but had "disappeared" from the family household to start a new life elsewhere. It would seem likely that the Agnes Gibson, recorded as "Domestic Servant" was actually her cousin Agnes Gibson born September 1850 in Glasgow the daughter of her Aunt Mary Beith and John Gibson..

She was identified as the widow of Walter McDonald, Iron Turner (Foreman), and the daughter of Robert Stewart, Bleacher (Foreman), deceased, and Janet Stewart, maiden name Lochhead, not deceased. The death was registered by John McDonald her son, who was present. John made a mistake with his maternal grandmother's maiden name, giving it as Lochhead instead of Beith.

Agnes Stewart, born about 1844 in Lochwinnoch, Renfrewshire - (probably in Bowfield)
Next generation in our Family History
James Stewart, born in 1849 probably in Neilston, or Bowfield, Lochwinnoch, Renfrewshire
James would seem to have been born in 1849 as there is a later death certificate for the death of a James Stewart aged 9 2/3 years, the son of Robert Stewart, a bleacher, and Janet Stewart, nee Beith, on 4 July 1859. No record of his birth has been found, and as he is missing from the 1851 census his place of birth is also unknown, but would seem to have been likely to be either Neilston, or Lochwinnoch, Renfrewshire. Although the death was recorded in Neilston the burial was recorded as taking place in the burial ground of the United Presbyterian Chuch, Canal Street, Paisley.
