Sir Joseph McConnell, 2nd Baronet
McConnell was the second child (and eldest son) of Sir Robert John McConnell (1853–1927) and his first wife, Mary Elizabeth Smiley (died 1896). He married Lisa McGowan, daughter of Jackson McGowan, on 25 April 1900, and they had three children. On the death of his father in April 1927, he succeeded to his father's baronetcy as the 2nd Baronet McConnell, of the Moat, Strandtown, Belfast.
McConnell was elected to the House of Commons of the United Kingdom as one of the two MPs for the Antrim constituency at the 1929 general election, after the unionist MP Charles Curtis Craig retired. He was re-elected unopposed in 1931 and 1935, and died in office in 1942, aged 64.
