Alexander Baillie-Cochrane, 1st Baron Lamington
Alexander Dundas Ross Cochrane-Wishart-Baillie, 1st Baron Lamington (24 November 1816 – 15 February 1890), better known as Alexander Baillie-Cochrane, was a British Conservative politician perhaps best known for his association with Young England in the early 1840s.
He attended Cambridge University before entering parliament as a member for Bridport in 1841. He later sat for Lanarkshire, Honiton, and finally the Isle of Wight until 1880 when he was made a peer and went to the House of Lords as Baron Lamington, of Lamington in the County of Lanark.
In 1844 he married Annabella Mary Elizabeth Drummond , daughter of Andrew Drummond of Cadlands, Hampshire and a granddaughter of John Manners, 5th Duke of Rutland. Through the marriage of Annabella's sister Frederica, he was brother-in-law to the Earl of Scarborough.
