Sir Samuel Scott, 6th Baronet
He was elected unopposed as Member of Parliament (MP) for the Marylebone West at a by-election in February 1898 after his predecessor (and stepfather) Sir Horace Farquhar was elevated to the peerage as Baron Farquhar. He held the seat for over 20 years until the constituency was abolished at the 1918 general election.
Scott was a Lieutenant in the Royal Horse Guards. He resigned from his commission, and was appointed a second-lieutenant in the West Kent Yeomanry (Queen's Own) on 24 February 1897. Following the outbreak of the Second Boer War, he volunteered for active service with the Imperial Yeomanry, and was on 10 February 1900 appointed a lieutenant in the 11th Battalion. While seconded, he was promoted to a lieutenant in the West Kent Yeomanry on 2 August 1902.
