Agnes Grainger Stewart (1871-1956) was a Scottish writer. She was born in Edinburgh on 26 April 1871. Her father was Sir Thomas Grainger Stewart, an eminent physician, and her mother was Jessy Dingwall Fordyce McDonald.[1] Her only published work appears to be The Academic Gregories (1901). The Gregories dealt with in this book include: John Gregory, James Gregory, William Gregory, etc. In all, the book outlines the lives of twelve Gregories from 1638–1858. Otherwise she seems to have led a sheltered life, presumably in charge of the Stewart household in Charlotte Square, Edinburgh. She died in Edinburgh on 25 September 1956, aged 85.[2]
