Background and education
Charles John Shore was born in Calcutta in India, 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.
On his death at 89 years of age he was buried in Dean Cemetery in western Edinburgh. The grave lies in the south-west spur.
In 1838 married Caroline Browne in Cumbria.
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.
His autobiography, Reminiscences of Many Years, was published in 1878.
