Edward George Fitzalan-Howard, 1st Baron Howard of Glossop PC (20 June 1818 – 1 December 1883), styled Lord Edward Howard between 1842 and 1869, was a British Liberal politician. He served as Vice-Chamberlain of the Household under Lord John Russell from 1846 to 1852.

Background and education[edit]

Howard was the second son of Henry Howard, 13th Duke of Norfolk and Lady Charlotte Sophia Leveson-Gower, daughter of George Leveson-Gower, 1st Duke of Sutherland. Henry Fitzalan-Howard, 14th Duke of Norfolk, was his elder brother.[1] He was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge.[2]

Political career[edit]

In 1846 Howard was sworn of the Privy Council[3] and appointed Vice-Chamberlain of the Household in Lord John Russell's first administration,[4] despite not having a seat in Parliament. Two years later he was returned to parliament for Horsham.[5] He remained as Vice-Chamberlain of the Household until the fall of the Russell administration in 1852.[6] The same year he was returned to parliament for Arundel, a seat he held until 1868.[7] In 1869 he was raised to the peerage as Baron Howard of Glossop, in the County of Derby.[8]

Lord Howard of Glossop was also Deputy Earl Marshal from 1860 to 1868 during the minority of his nephew Henry Fitzalan-Howard, 15th Duke of Norfolk.

Family[edit]

Lord Howard of Glossop married Augusta Talbot, daughter of George Henry Talbot, in 1851. They had two sons and five daughters:

Augusta died in July 1862. Lord Howard of Glossop married as his second wife Winifred Mary De Lisle, daughter of Ambrose Lisle March Phillipps de Lisle, in 1863. They had no children. He died in December 1883, aged 65, and was succeeded by his only surviving son, Francis. Lady Howard of Glossop died in December 1909.[1]
