Edward Pellew, 3rd Viscount Exmouth (14 February 1811 – 11 February 1876), was a British peer who inherited the title of Viscount Exmouth from his father and held the title for 42 years. He was the grandson of Edward Pellew, 1st Viscount Exmouth.[1]

Edward Pellew was born on 14 February 1811. He was the eldest son of Pownoll Pellew, 2nd Viscount Exmouth and Eliza Harriet Barlow. His father died less than 11 months after inheriting the titles of his grandfather Edward Pellew, 1st Viscount Exmouth, and he acceded to the title in December 1833. During his lifetime he continued to receive the £2,000 annual pension that had been awarded to the holder of the title of Viscount Exmouth that was first awarded to his grandfather (approximately equal to $228,000 in 2016).[2]

He married Madeline Honorine Dobrowolska of Paris, France (d. 22 January 1870) on 8 July 1858 at St. Marylebone Parish Church, Middlesex, England. Her father was Louis Stanislas Dombrowolska.[3][4]

Edward Pellew died 11 February 1876 in Kensington, London, England. Because he had not children, he was succeeded in his titles by his nephew Edward Fleetwood John Pellew, 4th Viscount Exmouth, the son of Hon. Fleetwood John Pellew, fourth son of Pownoll Pellew, 2nd Viscount Exmouth.
