Lewis Ashurst Majendie (1835 – 22 October 1885)[1] was a British Conservative Party politician.

Parliamentary career[edit]

At the 1874 general election, Majendie was elected as one of the two Members of Parliament (MPs) for the parliamentary borough of Canterbury[2] in Kent. He held the seat until his resignation in 1879,[2] by the procedural device of accepting the post of Steward of the Chiltern Hundreds.[3]

Personal life[edit]

On 8 January 1870, Majendie married Lady Margaret Elizabeth Lindsay, the daughter of Alexander Lindsay, 25th Earl of Crawford and Margaret Lindsay. They lived at Hedingham Castle in Essex.[4]
