Charles Manners Lushington
Lushington was born at Sanderstead, Surrey, the son of Stephen Rumbold Lushington and his wife Annie Elizabeth Harris. He served in the East Kent Yeomanry Cavalry of which he became captain in November 1853.
He was elected as a Member of Parliament (MP) for the borough of Canterbury at a by-election in August 1854, after the borough's writ of election had been suspended when a Royal Commission found that there had been extensive corruption. Lushington held the seat until the 1857 general election, which he did not contest. At the 1859 general election, he unsuccessfully contested the borough of Nottingham.
Lushington married, on 5 May 1846, Henriette Stafford Northcote, daughter of Sir Henry Stafford Northcote, 7th Baronet and Agnes Mary Cockburn. She died at Florence 20 January 1900, in her 80th year. Their daughter Agnes married Walter Phillimore, 1st Baron Phillimore.
