Last updated

Sir Thomas Tyrwhitt Jones, 1st Baronet (1 September 1765 – 26 November 1811) [1] of Stanley Hall, Shropshire, was a British politician.

Stanley Hall, near to Astley Abbotts in Shropshire, England, is a Grade II listed building that first gained its protected status in 1970. It dates probably from the early 17th century. It was for some time the family seat of the Tyrwhitt baronets.

He was the eldest son of Captain John Tyrwhitt, RN, of Netherclay House, Bishop's Hull, Somerset and educated at Winchester and Christ Church, Oxford. He succeeded his cousin Sir Thomas Jones in 1782, adopting the additional surname of Jones in 1790. [2]

Christ Church, Oxford constituent college of the University of Oxford in England

Christ Church is a constituent college of the University of Oxford in England. Christ Church is a joint foundation of the college and the cathedral of the Oxford diocese, which serves as the college chapel and whose dean is ex officio the college head.

He was the Member of Parliament for Weymouth and Melcombe Regis from 1790 to June 1791. Jones subsequently represented several other constituencies. He was MP for Denbigh Boroughs from January 1797 to 1802; Athlone from 22 August 1803 to 1806; and Shrewsbury from 1807 to 26 November 1811. He was created a baronet on 3 October 1808. [2]

Weymouth and Melcombe Regis was a parliamentary borough in Dorset represented in the English House of Commons, later in that of Great Britain, and finally in the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It was formed by an Act of Parliament of 1570 which amalgamated the existing boroughs of Weymouth and Melcombe Regis. Until 1832, the combined borough continued to elect the four Members of Parliament (MPs) to which its constituent parts had previously been entitled; the Great Reform Act reduced its representation to two Members, and the constituency was abolished altogether in 1885, becoming part of the new South Dorset constituency.

Denbigh District of Boroughs was a parliamentary constituency centred on the town of Denbigh in Wales. It returned one Member of Parliament (MP) to the British House of Commons.

Athlone was a parliamentary constituency in Ireland, which from 1801 to 1885 returned one Member of Parliament (MP) to the House of Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.

He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1800. [3]

He died at his residence, Clarence Lodge near Roehampton, now in south-west London. He had married Harriet Rebecca, the daughter of Edward Williams of Eaton Mascott, Shropshire, with whom he had three sons and two daughters, [2] one of whom married John Mytton in 1818. [4] He was succeeded by Sir Thomas John Tyrwhitt Jones, 2nd Baronet, MP for Bridgnorth and High Sheriff of Shropshire for 1816–1817.
