Francis Edward Stewart

M, #5590, b. 8 Sep 1833, d. 10 Jul 1904
Birth*8 Sep 1833 Somerset, England.1 
Marriage*14 Feb 1863 Spouse: Agnes Catherine Park. New Zealand NZ#M6540.2
 
Land-UBeac*18 Apr 1879Francis Edward Stewart selected land from the Crown. GEM-C-31. 19a 2r 28p - Crown grant to F. E. STEWART on 21 Jan 1885. Previously selected by Thomas Headen who forfeited.
In December 1883, F E Stewart, a bank accountant, stated that he had erected his portion of fence, and grubbed and cleared two acres to be converted into a garden. He erected no buildings, and stated that the land was "not fit to live on at present but intend doing so some day" and that he was "greatly disappointed at quality of land". He further said that the land was heavily timbered, scarcely had anything else than stones and was "very rangy and utterly unfit for cultivation."3,4 
Land-Note*5 Mar 1884 GEM-C-31: Beaconsfield, March 5/1884
Dear Sir, In reference to Mr F. E. Stewart's application for a certificate of improvements on his 49th Selection, but refused because the Crown Lands Bailiff could not endorse Mr Stewart's claim for improvements. I have seen Mr McWilliams the C.L.B. who states that the wrong block was pointed out to him, one distant about two miles from that which he ought to have looked at, as Mr Black's land adjoined Mr Stewart's and as his application met with a similar fate. It will be far more satisfactory to either grant these gentlemen what they require (as the valuations are there) or have the improvements re-valued.
Request the valuer to call on me and I will accompany him. Let him give me a few days notice. Amidst such a multitude of 20 acre blocks a stranger can easily make a mistake. More especially when there are so many selections bearing the same name.
Yours truly, W Brisbane.5 
Land-Note6 Mar 1884 GEM-C-31: Sir, I have the honor to acknowledge your letter of 26th ultimo Corr 2719/49. Circular No 161 calling my attention to the communication addressed to me on the 17th January. In reply I beg to state that communication was handed by me to Mr Brisbane who as my agent effected the improvements on the 20 acres. That gentlemen saw Mr McWilliams, the Crown Lands Bailiff who admitted that he had not visited the ground at all having been wrongly directed to a block fully two miles distant from the one in question. I therefore respectfully request that my certificate of improvements be granted, or that a proper examination be made of the land referred to in this correspondence. I have the honors to be, Sir, your most obedient servant. F. E. Stewart.6 
Land-Note*2 Apr 1884 Francis Edward Stewart engaged William Brisbane for his land dealings in Upper Beaconsfield Report of Const Thompson 2976, relative to the attached file. I beg to report that I went to the land referred to this morning in company with Mr Brisbane under whose supervision the improvements were effected. The improvements done thereon are as under: about 30 chains post and 2 rails substantially put up at per chain £1, about 2 acres grubbed and cleared at per acre £10, the whole amounting to about £50.7

  • 11 Jul 1904, Mr F E Stewart, managing director of Younghusband, Row, and Co. Proprietary Limited, died it his residence at Brighton yesterday morning. He retired in his usual good health on Saturday night, but awoke towards 1 a.m. complaining of a choking sensation. Mr. Macansh, M.R.C.S., was immediately summoned, but Mr Stewart passed quietly away. Mr. Stewart was probably the last survivor of the North Australian settlement at Gladstone under Colonel Barney, R.E., in 1848, and was afterwards connected with banking and pastoral affairs in New Zealand until 1870, when he came to Australia, and joined the National Bank, of which he was chief inspector. He subsequently became connected with Goldsbrough, Mort, and Co. as general manager, severing his connection with that institution in 1891. After a trip to the old country, he joined the board of Younghusband and Co. Limited. He was also a director of the South British Insurance Company, and some years ago was chairman of the Melbourne Woolbrokers' Association and of the Equity Trustees' Company. Mr. Stewart married a daughter of the late Mr. Robert Park, of Winchcombe Canterbury, New Zealand, formerly deputy surveyor-general of New Zealand, and leaves his widow, six sons, and three daughters.21

Australian Dictionary of Biography

Francis William Sutton Cumbrae-Stewart (1865-1938), lawyer, university administrator and teacher, was born on 27 January 1865 at Riversleigh, Canterbury, New Zealand, son of Francis Edward Stewart, grazier, who had been in the Gladstone colony in Queensland, and his wife Agnes, née Park. Another child was Janet Agnes. Educated at Melbourne and Geelong Church of England grammar schools, Francis junior took second-class honours in modern history at Christ Church, Oxford, in 1887, was called to the Bar at the Inner Temple in November, and returned to Melbourne next year. He took his B.C.L. with third-class honours in 1897, when he was known as Cumbrae-Stewart.
Stewart read with Henry Bournes Higgins and Sir Edward Mitchell in 1889; he practised at the Victorian Bar in 1890-92 and later as a country solicitor. Admitted to the Queensland Bar in September 1890, he practised in Brisbane in 1898-1903, then joined Thynne and Macartney as managing clerk. As a member of the Anglican diocesan council and the cathedral chapter, he helped draft a successful provincial constitution. At the same time he was the inaugural editor of the Queensland State Report. At St Andrew's Anglican Church, Brighton, Victoria, he married Zina Beatrice Selwyn Hammond on 24 January 1906; they had one son. Cumbrae-Stewart became the proud chief of part of the clan Stewart in 1908.
Appointed foundation registrar and librarian of the new University of Queensland in 1910, Cumbrae-Stewart also conducted the State public examinations and sometimes examined in French himself. He was an assistant district censor and interpreter in World War I. Universally known as Cumbrae, he was a commanding figure in the university. Severe, with an erect military bearing and a fiercely waxed moustache, he was always formal and pontifical in public. Though he mellowed with age, he attracted respect rather than affection. The thesis, 'Actio Pauliana; its origin development and nature', with which he won an Oxford D.C.L. in 1922, was admired by authorities.
Energetic and intensely curious, Cumbrae-Stewart was a voracious reader and an almost compulsive writer. By 1925 he was a founder and president of the (Royal) Historical Society of Queensland and editor of its journal. He was president of the Queensland branch of the Dickens Fellowship, chairman of the Queensland Place Names Committee, vice-president of the Queensland Authors and Artists Association, a founder and trustee of the Oxley Library and a member of both the Royal and the Royal Geographical societies of Queensland. For years he regularly contributed to the Saturday edition of the Brisbane Courier and gave short radio talks.
In January 1926 Cumbrae-Stewart became Garrick professor of law and was appointed K.C. in 1927. He gave eleven lectures a week, established law as a discipline in the university almost single-handed and laid the foundation for the full faculty that was set up when he retired in 1936. He settled in Melbourne to be near his son, died at South Yarra on 24 March 1938 and was buried in Burwood cemetery.
A fluent and sometimes witty writer, Cumbrae-Stewart published little substantial work, but his innumerable short pieces reached a wide audience, are still respected by historians, and enhanced the reputation of the university.11

Australian Dictionary of Biography

Janet Agnes Cumbrae Stewart (1883-1960), artist, was born on 23 December 1883 at Brighton, Victoria, youngest of the ten children of Francis Edward Stewart, an early settler of Gladstone, Queensland, and his wife Agnes, née Park, of Wellington, New Zealand. The Stewarts had arrived in Victoria from New Zealand in 1870; Francis was chief inspector for the National Bank in Melbourne before becoming general manager of Goldsbrough, Mort & Co. Ltd, resigning in 1891. He was then chairman and managing director of Younghusband, Row & Co. Pty Ltd until his death in 1904. Janet followed her brother, Francis William Sutton, in adopting the surname Cumbrae-Stewart.
Janet grew up in the family home, Montrose, at Brighton Beach. She went on outdoor sketching trips with John Mather before studying at the Melbourne National Gallery School in 1901-07 under Bernard Hall and F. McCubbin. In 1905 she was awarded second place in the National Gallery travelling scholarship competition. Elected to the council of the Victorian Artists' Society in 1914 she exhibited regularly with the society in 1909-19. In 1915 she was awarded a silver medal in the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, San Francisco. Between 1920 and 1937 several exhibitions of her work were held at the Athenaeum Gallery, Melbourne, as well as in Adelaide and Sydney.
In 1922 she went to London with her sister Beatrice and began exhibiting at the Galérie Beaux-Arts, Paris (1924-31), the Royal Academy and the Salon de la Société des Artistes Français (the Old Salon), Paris—in 1923 she received an honourable mention from the latter. In the same year she travelled through the Continent and to Canada. During her seventeen-year stay in Europe she lived at Avignon and Caen in France and at Laiguelia on the Riviera di Ponente, Italy, with Miss Argemore ffarington 'Bill' Bellairs, her companion. She returned to Australia in 1939 to visit her family and remained there after the outbreak of World War II. She lived at Margaret Street, South Yarra, from 1947 until her death on 8 September 1960. Her estate was valued for probate at £13,143.
Cumbrae Stewart (she dispensed with the hyphen and signed her work in this manner) devoted the most significant section of her oeuvre to studies of the female nude in pastel. Her nudes were the subject of a monograph by John Shirlow published in Melbourne in 1921. While influenced by the academic draughtsmanship of Bernard Hall, Cumbrae Stewart imparted a sensuous and graceful quality to her rendering of women's bodies. While her oeuvre includes water-colour and oil studies of landscapes and portraits she is chiefly known for use of pastel.4
