He was a Lord of the Council {SCT] as Lord Avandale in 1514, 1517, 1524, and apparently in 1533.

He was present in Parliament [SCT] in November 1524, February 1524/5 and September 1528. From 1527 onwards he was disposing of lands in Avandale by sale or otherwise to Sir James Hamilton of Finnart; and having resigned the barony of Avandale to his son and heir apparent, Andrew Stewart (who had a charter thereof 25 July 1531), he exchanged it with Sir James hamilton abovesaid for the barony of Ochiltree, co. Ayr, and obtained charters of it to himself and his son 2 September 1534. After the exchange of lands he styled himself, and was officially recognised as, Lord Ochiltree from 1534 to 1543, in which year, on 15 March 1542/3, by Act of Parliament [SCT] he exchanged his title of peerage of Avandale for that of LORD STEWART OF OCHILTREE [SCT]. As "Lord Uthiltre" he assented to the treaty of marriage, 25 August 1543, between Queen Mary [SCT] and Prince Edward; and as "Lord Stewart of Ochiltree" he attended, 30 June 1545, a meeting of the P.C. [SCT]. He married, before 22 August 1515, Margaret, illegitimate daughter of James (HAMILTON), 1st EARL OF ARRAN [SCT], by his mistress (usually called his wife), Beatrix, daughter of John (DRUMMOND), 1st LORD DRUMMOND [SCT]. He died in 1548 or 1549, before 27 October. [CP 10:2-3]
