Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of the Members of Parliament appointed as Steward of the Manor of East Hendred, a notional 'office of profit under the crown' which was used to resign from the House of Commons. Appointment of an MP to the office was first made in 1763. The Manor of East Hendred was sold by the Crown in 1823, but through oversight, appointments to the post of Steward continued until 1840, after which it was discontinued for Parliamentary purposes in favour of other stewardships. The last steward died in 1851.


Dates given are of the writ to replace the member who accepted the Stewardship.
