Lord Evelyn Stuart

Colonel Lord Evelyn James Stuart (7 May 1773 – 16 August 1842), was a British soldier and Tory politician.

Stuart was the second son of John Stuart, 1st Marquess of Bute, son of Prime Minister John Stuart, 3rd Earl of Bute. His mother was the Honourable Charlotte Jane, daughter of Herbert Windsor, 2nd Viscount Windsor. Stuart was elected to the House of Commons in February 1794, succeeding his deceased elder brother Lord Mount Stuart, but was not allowed to take his seat in Parliament until his twenty-first birthday in June of the same year. He continued to represent the constituency until 1802, when he was replaced by his younger brother Lord William Stuart. On the latter's decease in 1814 Stuart was elected to succeeded him, and held the seat until 1818, when he was replaced by another member of the family, his nephew Lord Patrick Crichton-Stuart.

Apart from his political career he served in the British Army. He was commissioned into the 7th Foot, but transferred to an Independent Company as a Lieutenant in 1791. He later purchased a Captaincy in the 1st Foot Guards, and in 1797 purchased a Majority in the 66th Foot and later the same year the Lieutenant-Colonelcy of the 21st Foot. In 1802 he transferred to the 22nd Foot and in 1805 he was promoted Brevet Colonel.

Stuart died in August 1842, aged 69. He never married.
