Charles Edmund Rumbold (11 August 1788 – 31 May 1857)[1] was a British Whig politician.

He was the fifth son of Sir Thomas Rumbold, 1st Baronet and his second wife Joanna Law, daughter of Edmund Law, Bishop of Carlisle.[2] Rumbold was educated at Oriel College, Oxford and went then to Trinity College, Cambridge.[3][4] In 1812, he began his Grand Tour and returned a year later.[4]

Rumbold was elected as Member of Parliament (MP) for Great Yarmouth in 1818, a seat he held until 1835.[1] In the general election of 1837 he returned to the House of Commons and sat for the constituency again until 1847.[1] In a by-election in the following year, he stood successfully a third time for Great Yarmouth and represented it until his death in 1857.[1]

In 1834, he married Harriet, daughter of John Gardner and had by her three sons.[4] He died at Brighton, aged 68 and was buried at Preston Candover in Hampshire.[5]
