Evelyn Pierrepont, 1st Duke of Kingston-upon-Hull KG PC (c. 1655 – 5 March 1726) was an English aristocrat.

Political career

He had been the member of parliament for East Retford before his accession to the peerage as fifth Earl of Kingston-upon-Hull in 1690.[1][2] While serving as one of the commissioners for the union with Scotland he was created Marquess of Dorchester in 1706, and took a leading part in the business of the House of Lords. He was made a privy councillor and in 1715 was created Duke of Kingston-upon-Hull; afterwards serving as Lord Privy Seal and Lord President of the Council. The Duke was a prominent figure in the fashionable society of his day.


His first wife was Lady Mary Feilding, a daughter of William Feilding, 3rd Earl of Denbigh and his wife Mary King, who he married in 1687. They had five daughters and a son, among whom were:[3]

His second wife was Lady Isabella Bentinck, daughter of Hans William Bentinck, 1st Earl of Portland, whom he married in 1714.

He was succeeded by his grandson Evelyn, son of William.

Ancestral link with Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge

It was reported in July 2013 that Phillip Medows, the husband of Lady Frances Pierrepont (d.1795) (the daughter of William, Earl of Kingston (d.1713)) was the great grandson of Daniel Meadows (1577-1659), the direct ancestor of Michael Francis Middleton, father of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.[4][5][6][7]
