Stewart succeeded his father as Member for county Derry on the interest of his father’s brother Lord Londonderry. As Castlereagh’s cousin, he supported government, silently. His votes with them on the case of Wyndham Quin*, 29 Mar., against Tierney’s censure motion, 18 May, and for the foreign enlistment bill, 10 June 1819, attested to this. He voted for Catholic relief, 3 May 1819. He died 25 Mar. 1850.
