Footnotes

  • Thomas Cholmondeley, 1st Baron Delamere, (born 9th August 1767 - d. 30th October 1855) was raised to peerage as Baron after payment of £5,000 for the title in 1821.
    Cholmondeley, a substantial Cheshire landowner by inheritance and purchase, was second cousin to Pitt and stood for the county, which his grandfather and father had represented for 51 years between 1710 and 1768, at the general election of 1796, when the ministerial sitting Member unexpectedly retired.

    Thomas married late in his life, and married Henrietta Elizabeth Williams Wynn, daughter of Sir Watkins Wynn. The marriage produced six children and numerous grandchildren.

    Provenance: by decent through the family to the current recipient.
