Frederick William Hervey, 2nd Marquess of Bristol PC, FSA (15 July 1800 – 30 October 1864), styled Lord Hervey from 1803 to 1826 and Earl Jermyn from 1826 to 1859, was a British Tory politician. He served as Treasurer of the Household under Sir Robert Peel between 1841 and 1846.
Background and education
Hervey was born at Portland Place, Marylebone, London, the eldest son of Frederick Hervey, 1st Marquess of Bristol, and his wife the Honourable Elizabeth Albana Upton, daughter of Clotworthy Upton, 1st Baron Templetown. Lord Arthur Hervey was his younger brother. He was educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge.
Styled Earl Jermyn after his father was raised to a marquessate in 1826, he became a member of Parliament as one of two representatives for Bury St Edmunds the same year. In 1841 he was sworn of the Privy Council and appointed Treasurer of the Household in the Tory administration of Sir Robert Peel, an office he retained until the government fell in 1846. He continued to represent Bury St Edmunds in Parliament until 1859, when he succeeded his father in the marquessate and entered the House of Lords. Apart from his political career he was also a Colonel in the West Suffolk Militia and a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries.
