Sir Thomas Western, 1st Baronet

Sir Thomas Burch Western, 1st Baronet (22 August 1795 – 30 May 1873)[1] was an English Liberal Party politician.

He served as High Sheriff of Essex for 1850.[2] He was elected at the 1865 general election as Member of Parliament (MP) for the Northern division of Essex.[3] When Essex was divided into three divisions (rather than two) for the 1868 general election, Western stood in the new Eastern division, but did not win a seat.[4]

He was Lord Lieutenant of Essex from 1869 to 1873.[5]
