George Hobart, 3rd Earl of Buckinghamshire
Hobart represented the constituencies of St Ives and Bere Alston in the House of Commons from 1754 to 1761 and 1761 to 1780, respectively. He was secretary to the embassy in St Petersburg in 1762, his half-brother John Hobart, 2nd Earl of Buckinghamshire being then ambassador.

He died in 1804 and was succeeded by his son Robert, who had already entered the House of Lords in 1798 by a writ of acceleration as Baron Hobart.
