    • Bought a farm in Ireland which he later sold to his brother-in-law, Arthur Cotter.
    • George Stewart was born in 1782, the second son of William and Mary. On the 5th July, 1801, he enlisted in the 6th Regiment of Dragoon Guards, probably in Downpatrick where they were garrisoned, and served without a break until 5th October, 1826, when he was discharged, at the age of 44, and became an “Out-Pensioner of His Majesty’s, (George IV), Royal Hospital Chelsea”. His pension was one shilling and a halfpenny per day, paid quarterly in arrears.
