Sir Henry Winston Barron, 1st Baronet DL (15 October 1795 – 19 April 1872)[1] was an Irish baronet and politician, who stood at nine different general elections.

Background[edit]

Born at Ballymil in County Waterford, he was the son of Pierce Barron and his wife Anna, only daughter of Henry Winston.[2] His younger brother was the bishop Edward Barron.[3] Barron was educated at Trinity College, Dublin.[4]

Career[edit]

He entered the British House of Commons for Waterford City in 1832, however he lost his seat in the general election of 1841.[5] In October of the same year, he was created a baronet, of Bellevue, in the County of Kilkenny.[6] A year later, both representatives for the constituency were unseated and Barron was returned to parliament until 1847.[5] He was re-elected in 1848, sitting for the next four years.[5] Barron was again successful in the general election of 1865 and represented Waterford City until 1868.[5] Although he won the constituency's by-election in the following year, the result was declared void because of bribery in 1870.[5] Barron served as High Sheriff of County Waterford for 1858[7] and also as a justice of the peace and a deputy lieutenant of the county.[2]

Family[edit]

On 1 May, 1822, he married Anna Leigh Grey, the only daughter of Sir Gregory Page-Turner, Fourth Baronet[8] and had by her a daughter and a son.[3] She died in 1852, and Barron married secondly Augusta Anna, youngest daughter of Lord Charles Somerset at St George's, Hanover Square on 1 August 1863.[9] This marriage was childless.[3] Barron died aged 76 in 1872 and was buried at Ferrybank, Waterford.[10] He was succeeded in the baronetcy by his son, Henry.[11] His second wife survived her husband for nine years.[3]
