  • Notes 
    • Archibald Stewart, of Largyan, or Largeane, 1541 became an influential leader in the rebellion which Matthew Stewart, Earl of Lennox, at the instigation of Henry III, organized in opposition to the Regency of Arran, during the minority of Mary Queen of Scots. On the failure of that movement, the Laird of Largyan was among the first to suffer forfeiture.

      In 1559 the last remnant of his property was sold, and soon afterwards his sons made their appearance on the Antrim shore.
      Tradition affirms that their first place of settlement was Dunsevcrick, and that from thence the family removed to a place called Ballinstraid (now Straidh), in the parish of Ballintoy
