Edmund Lechmere (MP for Worcestershire)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Edmund Lechmere (4 April 1710 – 29 March 1805) was a British politician, MP for Worcestershire 1734–1747.

Lechmere was the son of Anthony Lechmere MP (1710–1805), and the nephew of Nicholas Lechmere, 1st Baron Lechmere, Attorney General.[1]

He was educated by Mr. Vaslett at Fulham, and matriculated at Trinity College, Cambridge in 1728.[2]

He served as High Sheriff of Worcestershire in 1732–33.[1]

Horace Walpole described Lechmere as "a great grazier and a mere country squire". Unlike his father and his uncle, he was a Tory, who consistently voted against the Whig government.[1]

Lechmere and Sir Herbert Pakington, Bt were elected unopposed for Worcestershire in 1734; Lechmere and fellow Tory Edmund Pytts defeated two Whigs in 1741. Lechmere did not stand in 1747.[1]

He died on 29 March 1805,[1] a few days short of his 95th birthday, and was buried at Hanley on 5 April 1805.[3]


Lechmere married firstly, on 12 October 1732, Elizabeth daughter of Sir Blunden Charlton, 3rd Bt. They had two sons:[3]

He married secondly, on 4 June 1765, Elizabeth daughter of Rev. John Whitmore. They had one son:[3]
