Thomas Peter Legh

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thomas Peter Legh (1754–1797), was a British Member of Parliament.

Born about 1754 he was the first son of Reverend Ashburnham Legh of Golborne and Charlotte Elizabeth Legh née Egerton.[1]

He was educated at Brasenose College, Oxford.[1]

In 1794 he spent over £20,000 raising a regiment of fencible cavalry, The Lancashire Fencible Cavalry, to which he was appointed Colonel.[a][2]

Legh was Member of Parliament (MP) for the rotten borough of Newton in Lancashire from 1780 until his death in 1797.[1]

He died on 7 August 1797 leaving seven illegitimate children and his estates to his eldest son, Thomas Legh.[1]
