Like most of the Stewards, Arthur appears to have been involved in many interests: ship owner (1851 census), merchant (1861 census), brewers agent and was involved with his brothers and brother-in-law in property - see the entry for his brother Timothy (above).
Arthur was yet another member of the family involved with Steward and Patteson, as their Yarmouth agent from 1847, a role which his son later acquired.

Arthur married Mary Burton in 1826, the Burtons being another well known family in Yarmouth. Unfortunately the records of St Nicholas, Great Yarmouth from this period have been damaged. They had at least 3 children and possibly a fourth.
Mary Henrietta Josselyn (nee Steward) was born in on the 5th August 1828 and married Charles Josselyn on the 26th†June 1851. Charles died in 1893 and the 1901 Census (over) shows Mary Henrietta and her oldest daughter Mary Anne in Great Yarmouth staying or living with her brother Thomas. See here for the story of Mary and Charles.
Thomas Burton Steward was born about 1835/36, the son of Arthur Steward (1801-1869) and Mary Burton.
The English 1871, 1881, 1891 and 1901 censuses (see opposite) show that Thomas (although he seemed to prefer to be called T Burton Steward) and his wife Anna Katherine P Steward were living in Great Yarmouth and he was listed as Brewer, Mayor, Brewer's Agent and finally Retired Brewer.
Thomas married twice, first to Emily Anne Maxwell( -1867) and after Emily's death he married Anna Katherine J Brown (Civil Registration Index) in Norwich in 1870.
He was a member of the Steward family who were shareholders in the Steward and Patteson brewery. Thomas was appointed in 1883, as a manager with some considerable power. He was one of 5 managers, all appointed from within the families of Steward, Patteson, Morse and Finch and could spend £10,000 on a single transaction and purchase a public house of value up to £5,000.
Thomas was Lord Mayor of Great Yarmouth on 4 occasions: 1876, 1880, ? and finally in 1886. In 1887 Great Yarmouth held a fancy dress ball and dinner to the outgoing Mayor (Thomas Burton Steward, Esquire) on the retirement of Mayor and election of new Mayor (Richard Martins, Esquire) (ref Norfolk Archives).
An article in The Times of 16 11 1892 lists Thomas as a Lieutenant Colonel in the 1st Norfolk Artillery Volunteers, Eastern Division Royal Artillery, see Norfolk and Suffolk Artillery Volunteers.
By 1895 he was Gt Yarmouth agent for the brewery and took up a 3 per cent share capital (54.25% was then held by Steward and Finch (a Steward who changed his name to Finch), 24% by the Morse family and the Pattesons held 21.75%.
Both Thomas and Anna died in 1901.
It is interesting to note that their Ladies Maid, Charlotte Coleman, lived with them for at least 30 years from 1871 to 1901.
There is a reference (ref 1) to a Mr F Burton Steward a founding member of The Great Yarmouth Golf Club "in August 1882 a match was played between Dr Browne, Mr H Cummings and Mr F Burton Steward - the first three members of the Club". Either this is an error, and he is actually Thomas, or he could be another brother.
A second daughter of Arthur and Mary, Amelia Steward, married Walter Steward (- 1869) who was the son of Timothy Steward - Arthur Stewards brother.
