Admiral The Honourable Charles Stewart (1681-1740)
The fifth son of Lord Mountjoy, Stewart commanded a squadron against the Barbary pirates in 1720. He became Commander-in-Chief in the West Indies from 1729 to 1731, and second in command of the fleet under Sir John Norris in 1734. He became Vice-Admiral of the White in 1735 and Member of Parliament for Portsmouth from 1736 until his death. The portrait shows the sitter in old age. He lost his right hand when a midshipman in an engagement with a French ship in 1697. The artist has indicated the loss of his hand by the positioning of the stump of his forearm in a pocket.
