Basic Biographical Details

Name: William Burns Stewart
Born: c. 1850
Died: 20 June 1897
Bio Notes: William Burns Stewart was born about 1850. He practised as an architect in Glasgow. In 1878 his office was at 16 Robertson Street, but the recession resulting from the failure of the City of Glasgow Bank in that year caused him to close his practice there in 1880 or 1881. He appears to have found a place in the office of Clarke & Bell as he was listed at 212 St Vincent Street in 1895. He was living at 9 Regent Park Terrace at the time of his death on 20 June 1897.

South Clyde Estuary book states that he was a poet too.
