Lord Dynevor.

George Rice-Trevor, 4th Baron Dynevor (5 August 1795 – 7 October 1869) was a British peer. He was the son of George Talbot Rice, 3rd Baron Dynevor.

On 27 November 1824 he married Frances Fitzroy, daughter of General Lord Charles Fitzroy (a younger son of Augustus FitzRoy, 3rd Duke of Grafton). The couple had the following children:

  • Hon. Frances Emily Rice (1827– 26 November 1863)
  • Caroline Elizabeth Anne Rice-Trevor (1829 – 12 August 1887)
  • Selina Rice-Trevor (11 September 1836 – 22 January 1918)

Dynevor matriculated at Christ Church, Oxford 13 October 1812; he was awarded a D.C.L. on 11 June 1834.

He served as Tory Member of Parliament (MP) for Carmarthenshire, from 1820 to 1831 and from 1832 to 1852.

By royal license, 28 October 1824, he took the name of Trevor, after that of Rice, on inheriting the estates of the Trevor family at Glynde, Sussex.

Lord Dynevor succeeded to the title of Baron Dynevor in 1852. From 1852 until 1869 he served as ADC to the Queen.

As he died without male issue, his cousin the Reverend Francis William Rice succeeded to the barony. The family wealth passed to his daughters, thus splitting the wealth from the title.

Dynevor died 7 October 1869, aged 74, at Malvern, Worcestershire.
