    Notes:

    Birth:
    Mr. William Macpherson, F.E.I.S., Headmaster of the Daniel The Daniel Stewart Institution, Strath Tay

    The Daniel Stewart Institution, Strathtay was founded in 1814.

    Daniel Stewart ~ Benefactor
    Daniel Stewart: Born to a family of crofters in Logierait, Strathtay, Perthshire in 1740 or 1741, Daniel Stewart spent his early life as a herd boy. After an apprenticeship with a wig-maker in Edinburgh he traveled to India as valet to a client of that wig-maker. Upon his employer?s death he came into 11,000; from this fortune he amassed even greater wealth by speculating in property. Now wealthy he found himself appointed as Master of the Court of Exchequer. Daniel Stewart is the subject of a portrait by Henry Raeburn in the style of Joshua Reynolds. Daniel Stewart never married but lived alone at Windmill Street in Edinburgh form 1786. He died in 1814 an left his fortune in trust to care for a dependent and then for several charities. Part of the money went to found a domicile for healthy indigent boys in 1859 ? but within eleven years of establishment the school became a commercial enterprise.

    Scottish Naming Custom
    The oldest son after the paternal grandfather. (father's father)
    The second son after the maternal grandfather. (mother's father)
    The third son after the father.
    The fourth son after father's oldest brother
    The fifth son after father's 2nd oldest brother or mother's oldest brother
    The eldest daughter after the maternal grandmother. ( mother's mother)
    The second daughter after the paternal grandmother.
    The third daughter after the mother.
    The fourth daughter after mother's oldest sister.
    The fifth daughter after mother's 2nd oldest sister or father's oldest sister.
    Watching for these patterns can help in your genealogy research but Scottish (and Irish) naming conventions can create problems.
    Cousins, aunts, uncles all have the same names. Half generations apart. Is the entire family accounted for? Also, whether there are children that died. Sometimes families reused a family name if a child died, sometimes not. Pattern for 4th and 5th sons might be interrupted to name a son for a favorite saint
    Mac is the Gaelic word for son. It is abbreviated to often "Mc", but originally it was the longer word and normally followed by a space and then the surname. Both Mac and Mc variations are in wide use in both Ireland and Scotland.
