Henry Morgan-Clifford

Henry Morgan-Clifford

Henry Morgan-Clifford (1806 – 12 Feb 1884)[1] was a British Liberal Party[2] politician.

He was elected unopposed at the 1847 general election as one of the two Member of Parliament (MPs) for the city of Hereford.[2] He was re-elected in three further general elections (unopposed in 1857 and 1859), but was defeated at the 1865 general election.[2]

At the 1865 general election he stood in the two-seat Monmouthshire county constituency,[3] a county where owned he a large house called Llantilio Court, at Llantilio Crossenny, near Abergavenny, having inherited it in 1847 from a cousin.[4] However, Monmouthshire had been a solidly Conservative seat since 1841, and in the constituency's first contested election since the Reform Act 1832, Morgan-Clifford came a poor third behind the two Conservative candidates.[3]

Morgan-Clifford's heir and only surviving child was his daughter Marion, who married James Fitzwalter Butler (1839–1899), the 15th and 25th Baron Dunboyne. In 1860 they changed their surname by royal license to Clifford-Butler.[5]
