Parentage of Jean Stuart
Some sources claim that Jane Stuart (sometimes referred to as "Jean Boyd Stuart", (unsubstantiated)) was the daughter of Archibald Stuart and Janet Brown, but this appears to be in error for the following reasons:
1. Archibald Stuart named a daughter Eleanor in his will, but did not name a daughter Jane or Jean.
2. Archibald Stuart also did not name Jane Stuart's brother, John in his will:
Jane Stuart, wife of James Craig is listed in the following Augusta County record in Chalkley's as being the sister of John Craig that married Frances Burnside:
3. John Stewart, brother of Jane has been tentatively identified as a son of John Stewart of Middle River and the Borden Tract, who named a son John AND a daughter Jean in his will, both of their approximate birthdates seem to fit with the birthdate ranges listed in James Stewart's will. This appears to be a good fit.
Will of Jean (Stuart) Craig in Augusta County, VA
Jane Stewart was named in her father's will as being "under 25 and unmarried" in 1771, which would have made her birthdate as bet. 1746-1750.
