This family is of great antiquity in co.
Lanark, and is at the head of one of the
most extensive branches of the house of
Brynkle, being lineally descended from sir
Robert Stewart, of Daldowie, Gih son of sir
Robert Stewart, of Bonkle, or Bonkhill,
son to Alexander, fith lord high steward of
Scotland, great-grandfather of king Robert
II., the first prince of the Stewart line.
About 121IU, sir John bestowed the estate of
Daldowie, on the river Clyde, part of his
extensive possessions co. Lanark and co.
Renfrew, in patrimony, on his son, sir Ro-
bert, and was himself killed at the battle of
Falkirk, anno 1298, against Edward I., with
many other of the Scotch nobility : sir Ro-
bert probably fought at Bannockbum, with
the lord high steward, and the rest of his
family, under king Robert Bruce ; and we
find that in the following year he, with
three of his brothers, sir Alan, sir Walter,
and sir Hugh, accompanied Edward Bruce
in the expedition to Ireland, 1315 ; and he
was also present at the battle of Dundalk,
1318, where that adventurous prince at
