John Cobbold (1831–1875)
The scion of a long-established prominent family in Ipswich, Suffolk, Cobbold was elected at the general election in February 1874 as one of the two Members of Parliament (MPs) for the borough of Ipswich, winning a seat held from 1847 to 1868 by his father John Cobbold (1797–1882). However, the younger Cobbold did not repeat his father's long service, dying office in December 1875, aged 44. At the resulting by-election, his younger brother Thomas Cobbold held the seat for the Conservatives.
