# Charles Anderson-Pelham, 2nd Earl of Yarborough

Charles Anderson Worsley Anderson-Pelham, 2nd Earl of Yarborough (12 April 1809 – 7 January 1862) was a British nobleman who succeeded to the Earldom of Yarborough in 1846.

Before his accession, he was the Member of Parliament (MP) for Newtown 1830–1831, Lincolnshire 1831–1832 and North Lincolnshire 1835–1846.

Lord Yarborough gave his name to a hand of cards dealt in contract bridge that has no card higher than a nine (see Yarborough). The probability of getting a Yarborough is ${\frac {{\binom {32}{13}}}{{\binom {52}{13}}}}$ which is ${\frac {347,373,600}{635,013,559,600}}$ or about ${\frac {1}{1828}}$.[1] The Earl offered £1,000 to anyone who achieved a "Yarborough" – on condition they paid him £1 each time they did not succeed![2]
