Steward, Exley Anthony Whitefoord, died in his native Durban on May 4, 2002, aged 63. Tony Steward had 15 games for Essex in 1964 and 1965. The highlight came in Westcliff Week, 1964, with a career-best 47 against Middlesex and 38 against Somerset after being promoted to No. 3. However, nothing in his remaining games that summer, nor again in 1965, warranted his going in so high, and his Essex aggregate was 272 runs. Three games for Natal B in 1967-68 took his career tally to 310 runs at 12.91. Steward could also keep wicket and bowl leg-spin.
