Regency Personalities Series
In my attempts to provide us with the details of the Regency (I include those who were born before 1811 and who died after 1795), today I continue with one of the many period notables.
James Henry Keith Stewart
22 October 1783 – 18 July 1836
James Henry Keith Stewart was a Scottish Tory Member of Parliament.
Stewart was a younger son of John Stewart, 7th Earl of Galloway and his second wife, Anne Dashwood.
He represented Wigtown Burghs 1812–1821. In 1828, he became Assistant Secretary to the Treasury upon the premature decease of William Hill, and held that post until 22 January 1836, dying later that year.
