Date of birth[edit]

Most sources e.g. Hansard give his date of birth as 1843. The only source I could find with a specific date was CricketArchive which gives a date of birth of 6 August 1840. I have therefore gone with this date until (& unless) another source can be found giving a precise date of birth in 1843. --Daemonic Kangaroo (talk) 05:07, 21 September 2009 (UTC)

I have since found the Leigh Rayment parliamentary website which gives the date of birth as 9 August 1843, which is probably more reliable than the Cricket Archive so I have altered the article to reflect this. --Daemonic Kangaroo (talk) 05:37, 1 October 2009 (UTC)
The Times obituary of 19 May 1924 concurs with 9 August 1843. Davidships (talk) 22:44, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

Factual accuracy: the election petition case[edit]

What the article presently says about the election petition is wrong. The rail fare issue was not the reason Chamberlayne was unseated; it was the mass treating on the "procession" of Southampton pubs which was ruled unlawful. The Judges accepted that he participated in it unwillingly, but both found that he could have, and ought to have, refused to have anything to do with it. (I have read the whole of the judgment in the case.) Sam Blacketer (talk) 01:16, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

Hope that you will be editiing the article accordingly (and the tag can then be removed). Davidships (talk) 03:21, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

Succession[edit]

I have replaced the succession text to accord with The Times obituary. The previous text on the succession arose from a confusion as his heir was also named Tankerville. (Incidentally, there is a rare error in that obituary - referring to his second son being killed in action in 1896, instead of 1916). Davidships (talk) 01:17, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
