Sir William Payne-Gallwey, 2nd Baronet
Payne-Gallwey was the son of Sir William Payne-Gallwey, 1st Baronet and his wife Harriet Quin, daughter of the 1st Earl of Dunraven. His father was a British army general and Governor of the Leeward Islands. Payne-Gallwey was a major in the 7th Fusiliers and succeeded his father in the baronetcy in 1831. He was a Deputy Lieutenant and J.P. for the North Riding of Yorkshire.
At a by-election in March 1851, Payne-Gallwey was elected unopposed as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Thirsk. He was re-elected without a contest in the next four general elections, and in contested elections in 1868 and 1874. He held the seat until he stood down at the 1880 general election.
