(Whig) for Hedon between 1705 and 1734.1 He held the office of Secretary at War between 1714 and 1717.1 He was invested as a Privy Counsellor (P.C.) on 6 July 1716.1 He held the office of Lord-Lieutenant of the East Riding, Yorkshire between 1721 and 1728.1 He held the office of Cofferer of the Household between 1723 and 1725.1 On 1 July 1731 he was struck of the list of Privy Counsellors by the King, for taking a leading part against the measrues of the prime Minsiter, Sir Robert Walpole.1 On 25 December 1731 he fought a duel with Lord Hervey, for libel. Both were slightly wounded.6 He held the office of Member of Parliament (M.P.) (Whig) for Middlesex between 1734 and 1742.1 He was invested as a Privy Counsellor (P.C.) on 20 February 1741/42.1 He was created 1st Earl of Bath [G.B.] on 14 July 1742.1 He was created 1st Baron of Hedon, co.

     Lord Hervey described him as "cool and unsteady in his friendships, warm and immovable in his hate." Lord Chesterfield wrote "he was a most complete orator and debater, eloquent and entertaining, persuasive, strong and pathetic as occasion required; for he he had arguments, wit, and tears at his command;" but "his breast was the seat of all those passions which degrade our nature" and "avarice, the meanest of them all, generally triumphed."5
     On his death, his titles became extinct. He had two other sons.5 He has an extensive biographical entry in the Dictionary of National Biography.4
