The Stewart family

Archibald Stewart with his wife and family outside their house in Partick.

The Stewarts lived in a self-contained house in Partick Station bye-way, next to Hayburn Crescent. Victorian families were generally larger than families today and Mr and Mrs Stewart had seven children. Mrs Stewart had a maidservant to help her with housework, which must have been considerable given the size of the family. It was common for even moderately well-off families to employ servants in this period, and "going into service" was a popular and respectable choice of occupation for many young women.
