European Aristocracy
Admr. Lord Vere Beauclerk was a member of the aristocracy in British Isles.


Lord Vere Beauclerk, was the third son of Charles Beauclerk, 1st Duke of St Albans, and his wife, Lady Diana de Vere and was born 14 July 1699. [1]

He entered the Navy, about 1713[2] and was promoted to the rank of Captain 30 May 1721 and appointed to the frigate Lyme and served in the Mediterranean 1722-27 under Sir Charles Wager. As this was during peace time most of his action seemed to be sailing from Lisbon to Genoa and back again on a regular basis.[3] He returned to England on 7 July 1727 and was appointed to the Hampton Court in June 1731

Apart from his naval career, he was also a Member of Parliament; first being elected to the seat of New Windsor, in Berkshire on 31 May 1726 - February 1738. Elected for that seat again on 27 March 1738 - 1741

He died aged 82 on 2 October 1781[4] at his house in St James's Square, London and was buried on 6 October, in a vault in St James Church, Westminster.[5]
