  • Notes 
    • Alexander, who might also have been appropriately named Graceless, as he lived riotously, mortgaged the family property of Acton, and died in poverty,at Drumbanagher.

      He was unmarried, and with him ended the main line of a family, which,for upwards of two centuries, held a leading position in the county of Antrim.But it ought to be mentioned that there are traces, in this parish of Ballintoy, of another family which latterly spelled the name Stuart,and which was supposed to be descended from an earlier founder than John Stewart, the first hereditary sheriff of Bute.Of this family was Alexander Stewart, who owned considerable property in the townslands of Kilmahamoge and Ballinlea,and who died in 1723.
