Sir John Shelley, 7th Baronet
He was elected at the 1830 general election as a Member of Parliament (MP) for Gatton in Surrey, then at the 1831 general election as an MP for Great Grimsby, but did not contest the seat at the 1832 general election.
Shelley returned to the Commons after a twenty-year absence when he was elected at the 1852 general election as a Member of Parliament (MP) for Westminster, where he was re-elected in 1857 and 1859. He did not stand again in Westminster at the 1865 general election, when he contested Bridgwater, but without success.
