Age at Death unknown


It has been proposed that our ancestor James Stewart was the same one who came on the Fortune in 1621, which was the ship that followed after the Mayflower. Sole support for this is a handwritten unsigned document found in an old book; see notes for his son Daniel Stewart in these records. There you will also find extensive information about the relationship to other proposed sons of James Stewart.

Here is what "The Great Migration Begins" has to say about that James Stewart:
"In the 1623 Plymouth land division James Steward received one acre as a passenger on the Fortune in 1621 [PCR 12:5]. He does not appear in the 1627 cattle division, or in any later record."
