Philip Pleydell-Bouverie

The Hon. Philip Pleydell-Bouverie (21 October 1788 – 27 May 1872), was a British Whig politician.


Pleydell-Bouverie was a younger son of Jacob Pleydell-Bouverie, 2nd Earl of Radnor, by his wife the Hon. Anne, daughter of Anthony Duncombe, 1st Baron Feversham. The family home was Coleshill House in Berkshire (now Oxfordshire).

Political career

Pleydell-Bouverie was returned to Parliament for Cockermouth in 1830, a seat he held until the following year, and then represented Downton until 1832. He remained out of the House of Commons for 25 years, but in 1857 he was elected as one of three Members of Parliament for Berkshire. He held the seat until 1865.


Pleydell-Bouverie married Maria, daughter of Sir William à Court, 1st Baronet, in 1811. She died in November 1862. Pleydell-Bouverie survived her by ten years and died in May 1872, aged 83.
