William Stuart was born in c.1788, the son of the Revd J. Stewart of Carrickfergus in northern Ireland. He was a First Lieutenant in the Royal Marines.
He is hard to find in the censuses, but may be the Irish-born William Stuart (52) who was staying in a boarding house in Cheltenham in 1851.
He died in Oxford in 1860:
† William Stuart died at St Giles's Street at the age of 72 on 22 April 1860 and was buried at St Sepulchre’s Cemetery on 26 April (burial recorded in the parish register of St Giles's Church).
His death notice in the Morning Chronicle read: “STUART.—On the 22d ult., William Stuart, Esq., First Lieutenant R.M., last surviving son of the Rev. J. Stuart, Carrickfergus, aged 72.”
