Born at Toronto, Ontario on 5 March 1875, son of John S. Ewart and Jessie Ewart, he was educated by a private tutor. He was called to the Manitoba Bar in 1898 and practiced law with C. P. Wilson. In October 1907, he married Mary Frances Randolph Clay of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They were divorced in 1917 with his wife claiming adultery and desertion. He was a member of the Manitoba Club, Carleton Club, Winnipeg Automobile Club, St. Charles Country Club, Liberal party, and Anglican church. In 1911, he lived at 12 Ruskin Row, Winnipeg.
