Biography contributed by Evan Evans

From Rosie Patrielli

I’m a descendant of William Henry Stewart (4.10.1833 - 23.8.1899) William married Frances Palmer on 18 July 1859. They lived at 324 Darling Street.

John Robert Stewart (24.5.1860 - 17.12.1926) was their eldest son. He married Mary Anne Kemp in 1886 and had 6 sons. They all lived at 29 Mort Street.
My Great-Grandfather, Jack Stewart was the 2nd youngest son. He married Hilda Boughton in 1920 and they moved to Gladesville. Jack worked at Morts Dock where he suffered a fatal injury.
