About John Hobart, KB, PC

John Hobart, 1st Earl of Buckinghamshire, KB, PC (11 October 1693 – 22 September 1756) was a British peer.


Hobart was the son of Sir Henry Hobart, 4th Baronet and his wife Elizabeth Maynard, and he inherited his father's title when the latter was killed in a duel in 1698. He was created Baron Hobart in 1728 and Earl of Buckinghamshire in 1746, allegedly helped by the fact that his sister, the Countess of Suffolk, was a longtime mistress of King George II. It is notable that both his own wives came from rather obscure families. Hobart was Member of Parliament for St Ives from 1715 to 1727 and for Norfolk from 1727 to 1728.

He married firstly Judith Britiffe and secondly Elizabeth Bristow. John Hobart, 2nd Earl of Buckinghamshire was his son by his first marriage and George Hobart, 3rd Earl of Buckinghamshire by his second.
