The Stewarts in Ireland
The Stewarts in Ireland Web Site has been created as a result of research into the family of John Stewart of Hortland Co. Kildare Ireland (by George V. Stewart the Administrator) who came to Ireland C.1820 to work for Sir William Hort of Hortland (formally known as Sculloguestown) Co Kildare Ireland.
