James Stanhope, 7th Earl Stanhope


James Stanhope, 7th Earl Stanhope

James Richard Stanhope, 13th Earl of Chesterfield and 7th Earl Stanhope, KG, PC (11 November 1880 – 15 August 1967) was a British politician in the late 1930s as The Earl Stanhope.

He married Lady Eileen Browne (1889-1940), the eldest daughter of George Ulick Browne 6th Marquess of Sligo and Agatha Stewart Hodgson, granddaughter of William Forsyth QC. In 1952 he succeeded his kinsman the 12th Earl of Chesterfield as 13th Earl of Chesterfield and 7th Baron Stanhope, but never used the more senior Earldom of Chesterfield, and continued to be known as The Earl Stanhope. As he had no close heirs, both Earldoms and the Barony of Stanhope became extinct upon his death, but the Viscountcy of Stanhope of Mahon and the Barony of Stanhope of Elvaston passed to his nearest heir, the 11th Earl of Harrington.

The 7th Earl Stanhope left his country seat Chevening to the Nation.
