Stewart Clan history  

Scotland’s rich history is intricately intertwined with that of the Royal Clan, the Clan Stewart. The surname Stewart originated as an occupational name for a steward, who was responsible for overseeing the affairs of a noble household and its treasury. It is derived from the Old English word “stigweard,” which is a combination of “stig,” meaning “household,” and “weard,” meaning “guardian.” Just like every prominent house, Earl, and Bishop in medieval England and Scotland had their own stewards, this position has given rise to numerous branches of the hereditary surname.

The surname Stewart was initially discovered in Scotland, where records of Stewart as a surname, rather than just an occupation, began to emerge in the 13th century. The ancestors of the renowned Royal Stewart lineage in Scotland can be traced back to a family of Breton nobles called Flaald. Therefore, the name has Anglo-Norman roots. The name made its way to Britain with Alan, a knight who settled in Oswestry in Shropshire.

The Stewart Family motto is “virescit vulnere virtus” which translates to “courage grows stronger at the wound”
