James Harris, 2nd Earl of Malmesbury
James Edward Harris, 2nd Earl of Malmesbury (19 August 1778 – 10 September 1841) was a British peer, styled Viscount FitzHarris from 1800 to 1820.
Though the son of a great British statesman, James Harris, 1st Earl of Malmesbury, the young James Harris only dabbled in politics. His real interests lay in being a sportsman, and he was known for his meticulous records of what game he had killed and of the local and national British weather. He built up an extensive collection of stuffed game, which was donated to various museums.
