Major-General Sir Charles Broke Vere KCB KCH (21 February 1779 – 1 April 1843)[1] was a British soldier[2] and Conservative Member of Parliament.[3]

Broke Vere was the son of Philip Bowes Broke, and Rear-Admiral Sir Philip Broke, 1st Baronet, was his elder brother.[1] After service during the Battle of Castricum, he fought under the Duke of Wellington in the Napoleonic Wars and later rose to the rank of Major-General. In 1825, upon Wellington's recommendation, he was appointed aide-de-camp to the king, a post he held for twelve years.[1] He also represented East Suffolk in the House of Commons between 1835 and 1843.[4] Broke Vere died in April 1843, aged 64.
