Thomas Fremantle, 2nd Baron Cottesloe

Thomas Francis Fremantle, 2nd Baron Cottesloe (30 January 1830-13 April 1918), was a British businessman and Conservative politician.

Cottesloe was the eldest son of Thomas Fremantle, 1st Baron Cottesloe, and the grandson of Vice-Admiral Thomas Fremantle. His mother was Louisa Elizabeth, daughter of Sir George Nugent. He entered Parliament as one of three representatives for Buckinghamshire in a 1876 by-election (succeeding the ennobled Benjamin Disraeli), a seat he held until 1885. He was also involved in business and served as Chairman of the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway.

Lord Cottesloe married Lady Augusta Henrietta, daughter of John Scott, 2nd Earl of Eldon, in 1859. She died in 1906. Cottesloe survived her by twelve years and died in April 1918, aged 88. He was succeeded in his titles by his eldest son Thomas.
