Charles Pierrepont, 4th Earl Manvers

Charles Pierrepont, 4th Earl Manvers

Charles William Sydney Pierrepont, 4th Earl Manvers (2 August 1854 – 17 July 1926),[1] known as Viscount Newark from 1860 to 1900, was a British nobleman and Conservative Party politician.



Born in London, he was the eldest son of Sydney William Herbert Pierrepont, 3rd Earl Manvers. He was styled by the courtesy title of Viscount Newark from 1860 until succeeded to his father's peerage in 1900.

Newark was a lieutenant in the Grenadier Guards from 1872 until retiring in 1880, and subsequently held a variety of Yeomanry posts: Brigadier-General commanding the North Midlands Infantry Volunteers, captain of the South Nottinghamshire Yeomanry Cavalry, and honorary colonel in the 8th Battalion Sherwood Foresters.

He was elected at the 1885 general election as the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Newark division of Nottinghamshire.[2] He was re-elected unopposed in 1886 and 1892,[2] and stood down at the 1895 general election.[2] However, his Conservative successor Harold Heneage Finch-Hatton resigned in 1898, and was Viscount Newark returned unopposed at the resulting by-election.[2] He held the seat until his succession to the peerage in 1900.[1]

The 4th Earl was a keen sportsman and was Master of the Rufford Hunt from 1900.[citation needed]
