Lord Charles Wellesley

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Major-General Lord Charles Wellesley (16 January 1808 – 9 October 1858, Apsley House) was a British politician, soldier and courtier. He was the second son of Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, and Catherine Pakenham.

He was educated at Eton College,[1] and matriculated at Christ Church, Oxford in 1824, aged 16.[2] He was rusticated by the Dean of Christ Church, Samuel Smith,[3] transferring in 1826 to Trinity College, Cambridge, graduating M.A. in 1831.[4]

He married Augusta Sophia Anne Pierrepont, daughter of The Hon. Henry Pierrepont, on 9 July 1844. They had six children:[5]

Wellesley represented the Conservative Party as the Member of Parliament (MP) for South Hampshire from 1842 to 1852, and the MP for Windsor from 1852 to 1855. He was also a Chief Equerry and Clerk Marshal to Queen Victoria. Lord Charles died aged 50 in 1858.

When his older brother, Arthur Wellesley, 2nd Duke of Wellington, died in 1884 with no heirs, Lord Charles's second child, Henry Wellesley (as the oldest surviving son) inherited his uncle's dukedom as Duke of Wellington. When Henry also died childless in 1900, the peerage passed to Lord Charles' third son Arthur Wellesley, Henry's brother.[5]
