Hervey was elected at the general election in January 1906 as Member of Parliament (MP) for Bury St Edmunds, but automatically resigned in August the following year when he succeeded his uncle to the peerages.
The 4th Marquess married the heiress Alice Frances Theodora Wythes (1875–1957) in 1896. They had two daughters, Lady Phyllis Hervey and Lady Marjorie Hervey.
