Edward Grenfell, 1st Baron St Just
Edward Charles Grenfell, 1st Baron St Just (29 May 1870–26 November 1941), was a British banker and politician.
He was educated at Harrow School and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he was secretary of the Pitt Club. In 1904 Grenfell became a partner in the firm of J. S. Morgan & Co., later renamed as Morgan, Grenfell & Co. to reflect his position. He was a director of the Bank of England from 1905 to 1940.
Grenfell was Unionist Member of Parliament for the City of London from 1922 until 1935, when he was raised to the peerage as Baron St Just, of St Just in Penwith in the County of Cornwall. Lord St Just died in November 1941, aged 71, and was succeeded in the barony by his son Peter George Grenfell.
