Memorial to Charles Henry Hylton Stewart in Chester Cathedral

Charles Henry Hylton Stewart (1849 - 1922) was an English clergyman and organist.

Background[edit]

Stewart was educated in Bath, Somerset before entering Christ's College, Cambridge in 1870. Migrating to St Catharine's College in 1871, he graduated B.A. in 1874 and M.A. in 1877.[1]

Charles Henry Hylton Stewart was Choral Scholar and Organist of St Catharine's College, Cambridge.[2] On James Pyne's departure, he acted as interim Organist of Chichester Cathedral and was formally appointed in May 1874.[3] The following year he left to take Holy Orders and was successively Minor Canon Precentor of Chester Cathedral (1877–89), Vicar of New Brighton (1889 - 1904),[4] and Rector of Bathwick, Bath (1904–16).

Family[edit]

His son Charles Hylton Stewart, was Organist of Rochester Cathedral and of St. George's Chapel, Windsor.

His second son, Bruce Hylton-Stewart, played first-class cricket for Somerset County Cricket Club and appears generally to have used a hyphen in his surname.
