Families covered: Steuart (Stewart) of Allanbank, Steuart of Allanton (Allantoun), Steuart of Coltness, Stewart of Daldowie, Steuart of Goodtrees, Steuart of Kirkfield, Steuart of Mitcham, Steuart of Westshield, Steuart-Barclay of Collairnie (Collairney)

Sir Robert Stewart of Daldowie (b c1280, a 1317)
Crawfurd, the main source for this family, follows tradition in spelling the family name as Steuart rather than Stewart. As, to our knowledge, this type of spelling was quite rare before the times of the Stuart Earls of Lennox who spent much time in France, and changed their name from Stewart to Stuart because there is no "w" in natural French, we use "Stewart" until the beginning of the 16th century.
