Sir Thomas Dyke Acland, 10th Baronet, was the eldest son of Sir Thomas Dyke Acland, 9th Baronet. He inherited the family estates when his father died in 1794. While he was at Oxford he helped to found Grillion's Club (1812), which attracted many eminent politicians. Acland was MP for Devonshire from 1812 to 1818 and again from 1820 to 1831. He then sat for North Devon for twenty years from 1837. His family had extensive properties on what is now the Holnicote Estate and particularly the village of Selworthy.
