Henry Bingham Baring (1804-1869), Conservative politician; MP for Callington and Marlborough

Sitter in 1 portrait
Henry Baring obtained a commission as major in the Army and captain in the Life Guards in 1822, which he had resigned by 1833. Later he became a director of the family merchant bank, but appears not to have taken an active part. Baring entered Parliament in 1831 as an MP for Callington, the Cornish pocket borough owned by his uncle, Alexander Baring. When Callington was disenfranchised the following year, he was returned for the Marlborough constituency in Wiltshire, and held his seat until 1868. Baring served as junior Lord of the Treasury from 1841 to 1846.
