Wikipedia Biographical Summary

"George Wyndham, 1st Baron Leconfield (5 June 1787 – 18 March 1869), was a British soldier and peer...

...A direct descendant of Sir John Wyndham, he was the eldest natural son of George O'Brien Wyndham, 3rd Earl of Egremont, and Elizabeth Ilive. He entered the British Army and achieved the rank of Colonel. His parents were married in 1801 but had no sons after their marriage. The earldom of Egremont became extinct on the death of Lord Egremont's nephew in 1845 and Leconfield was adopted as the heir to the substantial Egremont estates, including Petworth House in Sussex. In 1859 he was raised to the peerage as Baron Leconfield, of Leconfield in the East Riding of the County of York...

...Lord Leconfield married Mary Fanny Blunt, daughter of Reverend William Blunt, in 1815. He died in March 1869, aged 81, and was succeeded in the barony by his eldest surviving son Henry. His third son Hon. Percy Scawen Wyndham was the father of the politician and man of letters George Wyndham."
