Lord John Cavendish

Lord John Cavendish PC (22 October 1732 – 18 November 1796) was an English politician. He was the youngest son of William Cavendish, 3rd Duke of Devonshire. He served as Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1782 and 1783, and was sworn of the Privy Council in 1782. He was a supporter of Rockingham, and subsequently of the Fox-North Coalition that brought the Duke of Portland to power. He lost his seat in the election of 1784, when the coalition fell, and did not return to the House of Commons until 1794, in the family seat of Derbyshire. He died two years later, in 1796.
