James Harris, 2nd Earl of Malmesbury
James Edward Harris, 2nd Earl of Malmesbury (19 August 1778 – 10 September 1841) was a British peer, styled Viscount FitzHarris from 1800 to 1820.
Though the son of a great British statesman, James Harris, 1st Earl of Malmesbury, the young James Harris did but dabble in politics. His real interests lay in being a sportsman. The second Earl was known for his meticulous records of what game he killed as well as his records of local and national British weather. He built up an extensive collection of stuffed game, which, upon his family's sale of Greywell Hill House in 1950, was donated to various museums.
