Title: Allan Stewart of Appin
Posted by: Donald (Livingstone) Clink
Date: 15 April 2007

I noticed in the two volume " A History of CLan Campbell" that in the chapter intitled "No Time for Sheathed Swords" it mentions that "Allan Stewart of Appin in March of 1546 signed a Bond of Submission to Argyll, promising to release the eight prisoners held by him and his "bairns." 

Could "bairns" mean neighbouring "Barons" residing near to and in some sort of alliance with the Stewarts of Appin during hostilies between Scotland and England and among the clans that were occurring in the 1540's.
