  • Notes 
    • Stewart Clan Magazine, May 1926 - Two British sailors who had been pressed into service jumped ship along the New England coast in the 1660's and lived with the he Indians for a time to avoid being caught. According to Frank Church (Petersburg NY) the two sailors, Church and Stewart, formed a bond of friendship and swore the two families would always be closely associated. No hard evidence but Frank's mother lived to a "ripe" old age and his grandmother lived to be 103, so the stories may have been handed down. William may have been descended from Elizabeth Stewart, Mother of Oliver Cromwell "He acquired the title of lieutenant and was a man of prominence. It is said that he knew the line of his ancestry back to kings, and a set of dishes bearing a coat-of-arms was later in possession of his descendants"
