I research the Stewart/Stuart family.....I married a Stewart who was 3xgrandson of James Stewart who came to Queensland, Australia from Caherhurley, Co.Clare in 1862.
Have found that branches of this family spell their name "Stuart", also.....so I research both spelling.
Family history states that the Stuart/Stewart family originated in Scotland and moved to Ireland during Royalty unrest....
At the moment I am brickwalled mid 1700 in Co.Clare.....
Have quite a bit of Australian information if of any use to you.
Hoping to hear from you....
