George Faber

George Henry Faber (10 December 1839 – 6 April 1910)[1] was a British insurance underwriter and a Liberal Party politician.

Faber was born in Camberwell, and became a member of Willis, Faber and Company, of Cornhill, underwriters specialising in marine insurance.[2] He was on the committee of Lloyd's of London, and The Times newspaper reported in 1906 that might have been chairman of Lloyd's if he had wanted the post.[2]

He was elected at the 1906 general election as the Member of Parliament (MP) for the borough of Boston in Lincolnshire,[3] but did not stand again at the January 1910 election.[4] He died in April 1910, aged 70.[1]
