John Stewart at Cultan?

Classification: Query
Surnames: Stewart

I've been doing research into my Stewart family tree and have managed to trace my Stewart ancestor to mid 1800s in Moffat, Dumfries-shire, Scotland. However a baptism record for my 2x Great Grandfather James Stewart shown that his father was a John Stewart who had James with Agnes Jackson in 1842 in Moffat. There is no trace of John Stewart in Moffat and I'm stuck as there is no other clues that suggest his DOB or where he was living. But there is something that the baptism record has revealed about John- he was described as a "servant at Cultan". I cannot find anything about Cultan as I don't know what that is. I've attached a copy of the record so anyone can help to solve the mystery.
