Charles John Shore, 2nd Baron Teignmouth (13 January 1796 – 18 September 1885) was a British Conservative politician.

Background and education[edit]

Charles John Shore was born in Calcutta, the son of John Shore, 1st Baron Teignmouth and Charlotte, only daughter of James Cornish, a medical practitioner at Teignmouth. He was educated at a private school in Clapham and, from 1808, a school in Chobham, Surrey. He then entered Trinity College, Cambridge, where he was the third President of the Cambridge Union Society.[1]

On his death at 89 years of age he was buried in Edinburgh Parish Church. He had married Caroline Browne in Cumbria in 1838.

Political career[edit]

Lord Teignmouth served as MP for Marylebone from 1838-1841. He came third in the poll in the 1837 General Election, but took his seat on 3 March 1838, after Sir Samuel Whalley's election was declared void.[2]

In June 1834 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society.[3]

His autobiography, Reminiscences of Many Years, was published in 1878.[4]
