Hi David,
The "parish N should have been "County N" i.e. he was not born in Argyll.

the same order as on the census. The actual census also shows those that
belonged to the one family within the household with a single line. (i.e.
where there was more than pone family inthe household) I have not
represented this on the table. However in the Stewarts case they are the
only ones from outside the county and all the rest of the house seem to be
In the 1851 census the Kinlochspelvie manse is occupied by
Angus McIntyre born Ft William age 37
Hannah McIntyre wife born Prince Edward Island age 29

Hannah 1.5 daughter.

So it looks like Stewart has departed by then OR moved to another part of
there are 48 Stewarts in North Mull in places such as Aros, Bealachruach,
Dervaig, Kentallen Ledmore Salen Tobermory and Ulva. Ian has set up this
