William Ormsby-Gore

"For his great-great grandson, see William Ormsby-Gore, 4th Baron Harlech."

William Ormsby-Gore (14 March 1779-4 May 1860), known as William Gore until 1815, was a British Member of Parliament.

Born William Gore, he was the great-great-grandson of William Gore, third and youngest son of Sir Arthur Gore, 1st Baronet, of Newtown, second son of Sir Paul Gore, 1st Baronet, of Magharabag, whose eldest son Paul was the grandfather of Arthur Gore, 1st Earl of Arran. In 1815 he married Mary Jane Ormsby, daughter and heiress of Owen Ormsby, and assumed by Royal license the additional surname of Ormsby the same year.

Ormsby-Gore was elected to the House of Commons for County Leitrim in 1806, a seat he held until 1807, and then represented Carnarvon from 1830 to 1831 and North Shropshire from 1835 to 1857. Ormsby-Gore died in May 1860, aged 81. His eldest son John Ralph Ormsby-Gore was created Baron Harlech in 1876.
