Mary Stuart, Countess of Bute and 1st Baroness Mount Stuart (February 1718 – 6 November 1794) was the daughter of Edward Wortley-Montagu and Lady Mary Pierrepont (the daughter of the 1st Duke of Kingston-upon-Hull).

On 27 August 1736, she married the future Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, John Stuart, 3rd Earl of Bute and had at least nine children by him:

 Lady Mary Stuart (ca. 1741 – 5 April 1824), who married James Lowther, later the 1st Earl of Lonsdale, on 7 September 1761
 John Stuart, 1st Marquess of Bute (30 June 1744 – 16 November 1814)
 Lady Anne Stuart (born ca. 1745), who married Lord Warkworth, later the 2nd Duke of Northumberland, on 2 July 1764
 The Hon. James Archibald Stuart (19 September 1747 – 1 March 1818)
 Lady Jane Stuart (ca. 1748 – 28 February 1828), who married George Macartney, later the 1st Earl Macartney, on 1 February 1768.
 The Hon. Sir Charles Stuart (January 1753 – 25 May 1801)
 The Most Rev. and Hon. William Stuart, Archbishop of Armagh (Church of Ireland) (March 1755 – 6 March 1822)

 Lady Louisa Stuart (12 August 1757 – 4 August 1851)

In 1761, she was created Baroness Mount Stuart of Wortley, co. York and upon her death, was succeeded by her son, the 4th Earl of Bute.

In 1774, Mary Delany wrote to her friend Bernard Granville:
“ You know so much of Lady Bute that I need say nothing of her agreeableness, her good sense, and good principles, which with great civility must be always pleasing. ”

  • Sand Dollar Tufted Pile Rug By Thomaspaul
    2modern.com
    Thomaspaul's concept is simple. The design concept is to mix unrelated historic design styles - Art Nouveau, 60's Pop Art, 70's Minimalism, 18th Century Baroque - and reinterpret these disparate periods into a unique style with a coordinated color palette that works with today's interiors. This collection of rugs all have a common trait, they all share high quality wool with the finest construction available. Both the tufted pile and the hand woven dhurries are created using New Zealand wool. New Zealand wool is considered to be the premium level wool that combines and balances the maximum sheen with the highest longevity. Efforts in giving you the very best can be easily seen or even felt by touching the three-ply wool used in the dhurrie.
