John Ryder, 5th Earl of Harrowby


John Ryder, 5th Earl of Harrowby

John Herbert Dudley Ryder, 5th Earl of Harrowby (22 August 1864 – 30 March 1956), briefly known as Viscount Sandon from March to December 1900, was a British peer and Conservative Member of Parliament.

Harrowby was the son of Henry Dudley Ryder, 4th Earl of Harrowby, and Susan Juliana Maria Hamilton Dent. He was elected to the House of Commons for Gravesend in 1898, a seat he held until 1900 when he succeeded his father in the earldom and entered the House of Lords. From 1927 to 1948 he held the honorary post of Lord Lieutenant of Staffordshire.

Lord Harrowby married the Hon. Mabel Danvers Smith, daughter of William Henry Smith, in 1887. He died in March 1956, only three days after his wife, aged 91, and was succeeded in his titles by his son Dudley.
