Henry Lascelles, 2nd Earl of Harewood (1767-1841), Conservative politician; MP for Yorkshire, Westbury, Pontefract and Northallerton

Sitter in 5 portraits
Henry Lascelles entered Parliament as a MP for Yorkshire in 1796. He was re-elected in 1802, but did not stand in 1806. In 1807, he again contested the seat in an election that was memorable for the vast amount of money, almost £100,00 that Lascelles spent on this unsuccessful campaign. He returned to Parliament in 1812, this time for Pontefract but subsequently sat for the family borough of Northallerton in 1818. Lascelles was a moderate Tory and opposed Catholic emancipation and parliamentary reform. He succeeded his father to the Earldom in 1820 and took his seat in the House of Lords.
