Sir Malcolm Stewart, 1st Baronet
Sir Percy Malcolm Stewart, 1st Baronet (9 May 1872 – 27 February 1951) was a British businessman. He incorporated The London Brick Company in the 1920s which was at the time reputed to be the largest brick making company in the United Kingdom.
The village of Stewartby in the Marston Vale in Bedfordshire takes its name from the Stewart family. The family lived in Luton until the early 1900s at Bramingham Shott estate, their home went on to become Luton Museum, and the estate Wardown Park. In 1934, Sir Malcolm bought The Lodge at Sandy, which is currently the headquarters of The RSPB.
Stewart was created a Baronet, of Stewartby in the County of Bedford, in 1937. He died in February 1951, aged 78, and was succeeded in the baronetcy by his son Ronald.
