Jervoise Clarke-Jervoise (Francis Wheatley, circa 1775-9)

Jervoise Clarke Jervoise, born Jervoise Clarke (c. 1743 – 5 January 1808) was an English Whig Member of Parliament (MP) who sat in the House of Commons of Great Britain for most of the years from 1768 to 1808.

Jervoise Clarke was the son of Samuel Clarke of Bloomsbury, London. He was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge.[1]

At the 1768 general election he was returned as a Member of Parliament (MP) for Yarmouth, Isle of Wight,[2] but was unseated on petition the following year.[3] He was returned for Yarmouth at the 1774 general election, and in 1777 he took the additional surname Jervoise.[1] He held the Yarmouth seat until he resigned in 1779[2] to stand at a by-election in Hampshire. He won the seat,[4] and was re-elected in 1784,[5] but was defeated at the 1790 general election.[5]

He was returned to the Commons the following year at a by-election for Yarmouth, and held the seat until his death in 1808.[2][3]
