Charles Capper (politician)
He contested the borough of Sandwich at the 1865 general election, but was unsuccessful. However, he won the seat at a by-election in May 1866 after the resignation of the Liberal MP Lord Clarence Paget. He held the seat until 1868, and did not stand again at the 1868 general election.
