      "Alexander Hamilton of Spy Park", by Lamar Hamilton
      Following the surrender of the Jacobite forces at Preston, they were
      imprisoned during the winter and spring of 1715/16 - poorly fed, ill-clothed and
      badly quartered. Approximately 700 of these "rebels" were transported from
      Liverpool to the plantations to be placed under indenture for seven years as
      servants. Two of the transport ships made port in Maryland, the first one,
      Friendship, on 20 Aug 1716 and the Good Speed on 18 Oct 1716. Daniel
      Stewart was among the 54 rebels on the Good Speed. Richard Elgin, a Charles
      County planter, was his original purchaser, but his indenture was subsequently
      resold to Thomas Orrell, an innkeeper and planter of the Portobacco area. John
      Stewart, who married Mary Hamilton, was also transported on the Good Speed;
      his indenture was sold to John Middleton, another Charles County planter. It is
      likely that John Stewart, apparently in his mid-teens, was related to Daniel
      Stewart - perhaps a younger brother, at least a cousin.
