Biography Trevor’s father, one of the Tory peers created in 1712, was dismissed on the accession of George I, but went over to the Government, becoming ‘as zealous a servant to the Hanover family as any of those who had never been otherwise’.1 His half-brother Robert, envoy at The Hague, contested Oxford University unsuccessfully for the Whigs in 1737. He himself was returned for New Woodstock as a government supporter in 1746 by his brother-in-law, the 3rd Duke of Marlborough, sitting until he succeeded his elder brother to the peerage in 1753. He died 27 Sept. 1764.
