Biography[edit]

Lyttelton was the only surviving son of Sir Charles Lyttelton, 3rd Baronet and inherited the family estates in Frankley, Halesowen, Hagley, and Upper Arley on the death of his father in 1716.

Sir Thomas was elected as one of the Members of Parliament for Worcestershire in 1721 and served until 1734, then for Camelford until 1741. He held office as one of the Lords of the Admiralty from 1727 to 1741.

Family[edit]

Lyttelton married on 8 May 1708 Christian, daughter of Sir Richard Temple, 3rd Baronet of Stowe. Her brother Sir Richard Temple, 4th Baronet was created Viscount Cobham with special remainder (in default of his own heirs male) to his sister Christian and her heirs male and in default of them to the heirs male of Christian. This latter remainder took effect in 1889 when her descendant Charles, Lord Lyttelton succeeded as Viscount Cobham.

Lyttelton was succeeded by his son George Lyttelton. His second son was Charles Lyttelton, Bishop of Carlisle and antiquary. His fifth son William Henry Lyttelton succeeded as 7th baronet and was created Lord Westcote (an Irish title) in 1776 and then Baron Lyttelton in 1794.
