Algernon Greville, 2nd Baron Greville

Algernon William Fulke Greville, 2nd Baron Greville (11 February 1841 – 2 December 1909), styled Hon. Algernon Greville-Nugent from 1866 to 1883, was a British politician.

Biography

Algernon was the eldest son of Fulke Southwell Greville and his wife Lady Rosa Nugent, the only daughter and heir of the Marquess of Westmeath. He purchased a commission as cornet and sub-lieutenant in 1859 in the 1st Regiment of Life Guards, rising to the rank of captain before he retired in 1868.

In 1863, Greville married Lady Beatrice Violet Graham, the daughter of James Graham, 4th Duke of Montrose, by whom he had four children:

  • Hon. Ronald Henry Fulke Greville (1864–1908)
  • Charles Beresford Fulke Greville, 3rd Baron Greville (1871–1952)
  • Hon. Camilla Dagmar Violet Greville (d. 1938), married Hon. Alistair George Hay, son of the Earl of Kinnoull on 21 January 1890; they divorced in 1908
  • Hon. Veronique Lillian Violet Greville (d. 1956), married Cmdr. Herbert Victor Creer in 1907
  • He entered the House of Commons as a Liberal in 1865 for Westmeath, which he represented until 1874. He and his father adopted the surname of Greville-Nugent in 1866. He was appointed a Groom in Waiting to Queen Victoria in 1869, resigning in 1873. From 1873 to 1874, he was a Lord of the Treasury in Gladstone's government.

    Greville-Nugent succeeded to his father's barony in 1883 and resumed the use of the surname of Greville alone. His eldest son, Ronald, died without issue in 1908, so he was succeeded by his second son Charles upon his own death in 1909.
