Aubrey Beauclerk (1740-1802) was the fourth child of Admiral Vere Beauclerk and his wife Mary Chambers. He was a great-grandson of King Charles II by his mistress, Nell Gwyn.

Aubrey was the only son that lived long enough to succeed his father. He became the 2nd Baron Vere in 1781. In 1787, he also picked up the title of 5th Duke of St. Albans. This he inherited from the previous duke - a childless cousin, George Beauclerk.

In May of 1763 he married Lady Catherine Ponsonby, daughter of the 2nd Earl of Bessborough. All of their seven children survived to adulthood.
