Sir Howard Elphinstone, 2nd Baronet (9 June 1804 – 16 March 1893)[1] was a British Whig politician

He was elected as Member of Parliament (MP) for Hastings at the 1835 general election, having unsuccessfully contested the seat in 1832.[2] He did not stand for re-election in Hastings at the 1837 general election, but stood instead in Liverpool, where he did not win a seat.[3] He returned to the House of Commons at the 1841 general election, when he won one of the two seats in Lewes. He did not stand again in 1841.[4]

He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in June 1832.[5]

Family[edit]

Elphinstone was the son of Lt.-Gen. Sir Howard Elphinstone, 1st Baronet (1773–1846) and Frances Warburton (died 1858). He was a barrister, and had the degrees of MA and Doctor of Civil Law (D.C.L.). He married Elizabeth Julia Curteis, in 1829, and they had two children.[6]

He succeeded to his father's baronetcy in 1846, and on his death was succeeded by his son Howard Warburton Elphinstone (1830–1917).[6]
