  iii. Archibald Stewart of Fintalloch
TSP (Stewart of Galloway) identifies this Archibald, ancestor of the Stewarts of Fintalloch, as being son of the Sir Alexander Stewart, 3rd of Garlies. "History of Renfrewshire" also indicates that as does BP1934 (Galloway). However, as they are all probably following the same source and we prefer to follow the family tree noted by a descendant family, we follow BLG (Stewart of Shambellie) and BP2002 (Stewart of Ramelton) in showing him here.
