Does anyone have information on the John Steward who was among about 150 Scots prisoners following their defeat by Cromwell at the battle of Dunbar in 1651? These men were transported to be indentured servants and sometimes for lifetime servitude. Many were set to work at the ironworks in Lynn/Saugus and Quncy/Braintree, MA. Apparently there was a list of all the men's names but because of destruction of portions of the original only 35 names are known today, among them a John Steward.
Did he serve 7 years and then establish himself in the new land, marry and have children? Thanks for any help.
