George Ludlow, 3rd Earl Ludlow
Serving in the British Army, he rose to Colonel of the 1st Foot Guards 21 August 1795, and Major General 18 June 1798. In 1801 he served under Abercromby and Hely-Hutchinson in the Egyptian Campaign commanding the Guards Brigade, seeing action at Aboukir, and Alexandria (Canope). He was made Lieutenant General on 30 October 1805. In August 1807 he commanded the 3rd Division in the Copenhagen Campaign under Lord Cathcart. Ludlow was promoted General in June 1814. He was also Colonel in the Scots Fusiliers.
He succeeded his elder brother Augustus in the earldom in 1811. As this was an Irish peerage it did not entitle him to a seat in the House of Lords. However, in 1831 he was created Baron Ludlow in the Peerage of the United Kingdom, which enabled him to take a seat in the upper chamber of parliament.
Lord Ludlow died in April 1842, aged 83. He was unmarried and all his titles became extinct on his death.
