Sidney Herbert, 14th Earl of Pembroke Politician

Sidney herbert 14th earl of pembroke

Sidney Herbert, 14th Earl of Pembroke, 11th Earl of Montgomery GCVO, PC (20 February 1853 – 30 March 1913), styled The Honourable Sidney Herbert between 1861 and 1895, was a British politician and peer. Herbert was born at Belgrave Square, London, the second son of Sidney Herbert, 1st Baron Herbert of Lea (who was the son of George Augustus Herbert, 11th Earl of Pembroke, by his second wife Catherine Woronzow) and Mary Elizabeth, daughter of Lieutenant-General Charles Ashe A'Court. George Herbert, 13th Earl of Pembroke, was his elder brother, and Sir Michael Henry Herbert his younger brother. Catherine Woronzow was the daughter of a prominent aristocratic Russian family, the Woronzows. He was educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford. Herbert was elected as Member of Parliament for Wilton in Wiltshire in 1877 but lost his seat in the 1885 general election. This was somewhat of a shock given that the seat of the Earls of Pembroke was at Wilton House and his family dominated Wiltshire politics. Herbert was then chosen early in 1886 to replace William Grantham, who had just been appointed a judge, in Croydon.
