Early Stewarts of Clochfoldich

The second son of Minister of Killin who I think inherited Blackhill,  Duncan Stewart married a Fergusson who was daughter of Minister of Logerait.   I wonder if this was the family of Fergussons that William Stewart may have married in about the 1770s.  James Stewart was the first son who inherited Killiechasie.

Yes I have seen this handwritten list of documents and have gleaned that Succession of Cloichfoldich went from George to eldest son John to his eldest son John to his eldest son John
Sandra, Let me see if I understand.

Robert Stewart b 1650 of Killiechassie, minister of Killin marries  Anna Campbell in 1683.
They have the following children:

1. Catherine Stewart
2. Ann Stewart
3. Margaret Stewart
4. Grizell Stewart
5. James Stewart, of Killiechassie, b. 29 Nov 1683
7. Alexander Stewart, of Clochfoldich, b. 29 Nov 1689
8. Robert Stewart, of Derculich, b. 6 Dec 1704

Alexander has a child named Robert Stewart, 2 of Clochfoldich
Alexander marries Susan Fleming b 11 March 1737 in Dull, Perthshire. on Feb 8, 1756

This enlarged part of Tay is a Lake so prob still there to this day.  Did you see the p 29 or 30 of jamesirvinerobertson   1817 census which specifically mentions the Stewart Menzies  William Stewart so he is at least different to Clochfoldich William Stewart with 3 daughters mentioned  early on In The census. Is there another early map in more detail of the estates as the map in 1706 only has Logyrait. I have see Western Clochfoldich on one of those Early maps. I think that this census proves that the Ballendune William Stewart is not our Stewart. What do you think.
