John Pratt, 3rd Marquess Camden
Camden was born at Belgrave Square, London, the eldest son of George Pratt, 2nd Marquess Camden, by Harriet, daughter of the Right Reverend George Murray, Bishop of Rochester. He was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge, graduating MA in 1860. In February 1866 he was returned to parliament for Brecon. However, in August of the same year he succeeded his father in the marquessate and entered the House of Lords.
Lord Camden married Lady Clementina Augusta, daughter of George Spencer-Churchill, 6th Duke of Marlborough, in 1866. They had three sons (of whom the two eldest died in infancy) and one daughter. He died at Eaton Square, London, in May 1872, aged 31, and was succeeded by his third but only surviving son, John, who was then two months old. The Marchioness Camden married as her second husband Captain Philip Green in 1876. She died in March 1886, aged 37.
