William Stratford Dugdale
He was the only son of Dugdale Stratford Dugdale of Merevale Hall, Warwickshire and his wife, the Hon. Charlotte Curzon, daughter of Assheton Curzon, 1st Viscount Curzon. His father was a Member of Parliament (MP) for Warwickshire.
Member of Parliament
Dugdale entered the unreformed House of Commons at the 1830 general election as an MP for the borough of Shaftesbury in Dorset. He did not contest that seat at the 1831 general election, when he was returned unopposed for the rotten borough of Bramber in Sussex.
Bramber was disenfranchised by the Reform Act 1832, and at the 1832 general election he was returned as a member for North Warwickshire. He held that seat until he retired from Parliament at the 1847 election.
