Bookplate Baron Bingley

November 30th, 2015 · No Comments

I received the bookplate of George Richard Lane Fox, 1st Baron Bingley, a while ago as a gift from Steve Slater (for which grateful thanks have been extended) and have only just got round to adding it to my albums so I thought it appropriate to post it here as well.

Lieutenant-Colonel George Richard Lane-Fox, 1st Baron Bingley PC (15 December 1870 – 11 December 1947), was a British Conservative politician. He served as Secretary for Mines between 1922 and 1924 and again between 1924 and 1928.

On 24 July 1933 he was elevated to the peerage as Baron Bingley, of Bramham in the County of York.

Lord Bingley died in December 1947, aged 76. As he had no sons the barony died with him.
