After leaving the Army in he was elected to Parliament in 2010, and has earned a reputation speaking out for veterans during his time as an MP.
'But such behaviour is taken to a new level when, during the last election, a teacher tells the class of my 13 year-old boy that nobody should talk to him because he is the son of a Conservative MP.'There were cries of 'shame' and shocked gasps from fellow MPs after Mr Stewart made the comments.
Calling for particular concern to be made for vulnerable candidates, Ms Ford said the fellow Conservative - who stood in the east of England - was subjected to online abuse.
This included a threat to 'shoot her then pull the teeth out of her jaw while she fades away', she said.
She said: '(They) were spat at, told they should have their throats slit, were threatened that they should die, were told their mothers should never have given birth to them, and their cars were targeted and they were targeted face-to-face.'Meanwhile, Labour frontbencher Cat Smith criticised George Osborne for reportedly saying he wants Theresa May 'chopped up in bags in my freezer'.
The Labour shadow deputy Commons leader said: 'He has previously compared the Prime Minister to being a 'dead woman walking'.'The reason I raised it is because violence against women is a genuine problem in this country - two women a week are killed by their partner or former partners.'

Tory MP Pauline Latham accused him of backing the 'unauthorised Amanda Solloway' account and being part of the 'worst' campaign 'I have ever seen'.
Ms Latham, MP for Mid Derbyshire, said: 'Video statements were made by her opponent, the new member for Derby North, about the unfair link to her husband's business appeared on this Facebook page.'That would suggest he had direct involvement in the overall strategy of this page. 'She added: 'This was a targeted, personal and unfair campaign against our former colleague, in fact I would say it was bullying.'Many people could have been influenced by this vile abuse on social media.'She added: 'I hope the sensible wing of the Labour Party and not those extreme left-wingers, who are clearly just like Militant used to be, will win the day and stop this kind of personalised campaigning.' Vicky Ford, the Conservative MP for Chelmsford, told of a partially sighted candidate who was threatened with rape.
She said: 'They are 11 and nine now, they've just got to the age where they understand what he [Mr Gove] does and they understand that people hate him because people will say things to them in the playground.'One of Beatrice's own teachers went on strike and then she said that she saw him on Newsround holding a banner going 'Michael Gove out' which I think is quite a strange experience for a small child – and I don't know how it's going to affect them at all.
