Lord Sidney Beauclerk
Lord Sidney entered Parliament in 1733 as MP for Windsor, together with his brother, Lord Vere Beauclerk. His fortune-hunting eventually brought dividend in 1737 when he was bequeathed the Windsor estates of Richard Topham MP, located in and around Old Windsor.
On 9 December 1736, he married Mary, daughter and heiress of Thomas Norris MP, of Speke, Lancashire; Lord and Lady Sidney Beauclerk had an only son, Topham Beauclerk who married Diana, Viscountess Bolingbroke and St John (née Spencer); Mr Topham and Lady Diana Beauclerk, who lived at Speke Hall, have many surviving descendants among whom are the present Marquises de Valero de Urría.
