Lord Wenlock was the fourth son of the second Baron Wenlock, and was born on November 12, 1860. After attaining the rank of captain in the 10th Hussars, he entered politics, and became private secretary to the Duke of Westminster, acting in that capacity from 1892 to 1896. In 1896 he was appointed secretary to Earl Grey, and later became Deputy-Administrator of Matabeleland. After performing the duties of this office conspicuously well, he was made Administrator of Matabeleland in 1897, and retained the position until 1901, when he was appointed Governor of Western Australia. At the same time he was created a K.C.M.G. After leaving Western Australia in 1902, he became Lieut.-Governor of the Transvaal until 1906, and Governor of Madras from 1906 to 1911. Lord Wenlock became the sixth Baron of his line, succeeding his brother, last year. He left no heir to the title.
