Thomas Paget (MP for South Leicestershire)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thomas Tertius Paget JP, DL (27 December 1807 – 16 October 1892)[1] was an English banker and Liberal Party politician.

Paget was the eldest son of the banker and Whig politician Thomas Paget (1778–1862)[2] and his wife Anne Pares. He was a partner in Leicester Bank and became a J. P. and a Deputy Lieutenant for Leicestershire and High Sheriff of Leicestershire in 1869.[3]

Paget was elected as a Member of Parliament (MP) for the Southern Division of Leicestershire at a by-election in November 1867, filling the vacancy caused by the death of the Conservative Party MP Charles William Packe.[4] However, he was defeated at the 1868 general election, and was unsuccessful both at a further by-election in 1870 and at the 1874 general election. He finally regained the seat, after a twelve-year absence from the House of Commons, at the 1880 general election,[4] and when the constituency was abolished under the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885, he was elected at the 1885 general election for the new Harborough Division of Leicestershire.[5] He retired from Parliament at the 1886 general election.

Paget died at the age of 84, having married Katharine Geraldine MacCausland, daughter of Marcus MacCausland of Dreenagh, County Londonderry, in 1850.[3]
