Andrew Archer, 2nd Baron Archer
In 1761 he was returned to Parliament for both Bramber and Coventry, but chose to sit for Coventry, which he represented until 1768 when he succeeded to his father's title and took his seat in the House of Lords.
Lord Archer died at Portman Square, Marylebone, London, in April 1778, aged 41, and was buried at Tanworth. He married Sarah, daughter of James West of Alscot Park, in 1761 and had one son and 4 daughters. His son predeceased him and thus the peerage became extinct, but his properties (Umberslade, Pyrgo and a town house in London) were divided between his wife and daughters.
Lady Archer moved to London with her daughters and living up to being a grand dame then became the subject of a series of malicious caricatures in the press. She died at Charles Street, Grosvenor Square, London, in February 1801, aged 59.
