Henry Hyde, 4th Earl of Clarendon and 2nd Earl of Rochester, PC (June 1672 – 10 December 1753) was an English nobleman and politician. He was styled Lord Hyde from 1682 to 1711.

Life

He was the son of the 1st Earl of Rochester and Lady Henrietta, daughter of the 1st Earl of Burlington. His education started at Eton where he studied from 1683 to 1687 and entered Oxford University in 1700. From 1687 to 1690 saw him travel abroad to Italy, Germany and the Dutch Republic. He was Tory MP for Launceston 15 November 1692—2 May 1711 and High Steward of the University of Oxford from 1711. He was appointed to the Privy Council of Great Britain in 1710.

He succeeded his father as 2nd Earl of Rochester on 2 May 1711 and his cousin as 4th Earl of Clarendon on 31 March 1723.
