Bateson entered the British House of Commons in 1842, sitting for Londonderry, the same constituency his father had represented before, until his death in the following year.[1] He was succeeded as a Member of Parliament by his second brother Thomas, later raised to the Peerage of the United Kingdom as Baron Deramore.[3] His youngest brother George was per a special remainder heir to the barony.[3]
