There is no William Andrew Stewart, born 1884. Auchinleck, Ayr.
There is however a William Andrew Stewart, born 1882. Auchinleck,Ayr.
Its most likely he is the son of either of these four brothers, William,born 1844. George.
born 1848. James. born 1850. John. born 1860.
These four brothers were all sons of James Stewart, and Elizabeth Andrews, and thats where
the middle name of Andrews, came from. All these sons were born in Auchenleck, Ayr.
The big problem is that between 1880. and 1890 there were four William Stewart's, born
in Auchinleck, Ayr.
You say your William Andrew Stewart, came to South Africa, in 1904. along with his brother
what was his brothers name and age this might help to narrow down their parents names.
The only way to be certain of William Andrew Stewart's, parents names is to purchase
his birth certificate which would provide his parents names.
As i stated earlier in this post that there were four Wiliam Stewart's, born 1880.
1890. Auchinleck, Ayr, there is one 1884. but no middle name Andrew,its also possible this
one added Andrew, as a middle name later in his life,or even baptised with this name. So
you will need to be carefull you get the correct William's, birth.
