Sir Richard Vernon, 3rd Baronet
Sir Richard Vernon, 3rd Baronet (22 June 1678 – 1 October 1725) was a British diplomat and politician.
Envoy to Poland
Vernon was subsequently dispatched as British envoy to Poland, also visiting Dresden. On his way he passed through The Hague in September 1715. The following April he travelled from Dresden to Danzig to attend the wedding between the Duke of Mecklenburg and the Tsar's niece, a splendid affair. The following October, he passed through Berlin on his way to Gohr, returning in November. He was still in Berlin a month later, but about to go to Dresden to await the king of Poland there or go on to Poland. By October 1718, he had been superseded and returned to England.
