Charles Bingham, 1st Earl of Lucan
Charles Bingham, 1st Earl of Lucan (22 September 1735 – 29 March 1799), known as Sir Charles Bingham, 7th Baronet from 1750 until 1776, was an Irish peer and politician.
Bingham was appointed High Sheriff of Mayo in 1756. He was elected as Member of Parliament for both Castlebar and Mayo in 1761, and chose to sit for the latter. He was returned to the Irish House of Commons until 1776, when he was elevated to the Peerage of Ireland as Baron Lucan, of Castlebar, in the County of Mayo. As his title enabled him only to take a seat in the Irish House of Lords, Bingham was not restricted from entering the British House of Commons for Northampton in 1782, representing it until two years later. In 1795, Bingham was further ennobled as Earl of Lucan, of Castlebar, in the County of Mayo.
