Last updated

John Patteson Cobbold (12 July 1831 – 10 December 1875) [1] was a Conservative Party politician in England.

The scion of a long-established prominent family in Ipswich, Suffolk, Cobbold was elected at the general election in February 1874 as one of the two Members of Parliament (MPs) for the borough of Ipswich, [2] winning a seat held from 1847 to 1868 by his father John Cobbold (1797–1882). However, the younger Cobbold did not repeat his father's long service, dying office in December 1875, aged 44. [1] At the resulting by-election, his younger brother Thomas Cobbold held the seat for the Conservatives.

His son John Cobbold (1861–1929) was an artist and the husband of Zainab Cobbold, a Scottish convert to Islam.
