dc.description.abstractJohn Stuart, third Earl of Bute, was born in May 1713 at Parliament Square, Edinburgh, the eldest son of James, second Earl of Bute (1689/90-1723), and his wife, Lady Anne Campbell (1692-1736). The second Earl was a supporter of the Hanoverian succession; he was elected as a representative peer for Scotland in 1715 and rewarded with a place at the court of George I (1660-1727) with his appointment as a Lord of the Bedchamber in 1721.1 He retained these influential positions until his premature death in 1723.2 After the death of his father, the young Earl was brought up in England under the guardianship of his maternal uncles, John Campbell, second Duke of Argyll (1678-1743), and Archibald Campbell, Earl of Ilay (1682-1761).en_IE
