from L&M Comapnion
3rd Bt (1634-97). M.P. for Warwickshire 1654, and for Buckingham borough 1659, 1660,1661-95 (except for the first Exclusion Parliament). A member of the Duke of Buckingham's faction in the '60s, he attempted in 1663 to gain office (and a badly-needed income) by a promise to manage the Commons. On the failure of the scheme he resumed his attacks and led the parliamentary critics of Coventry and Clarendon in 1667-8. He went over to the court interest in 1670 and was given a place on the Council for Foreign Plantations 1671, and the Customs commission 1672. He later became a Whig and an Exclusionist.
