Hugh Percy, 3rd Duke of Northumberland

(1785-1847), Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland

Sitter in 12 portraits
Hugh Percy entered Parliament as an MP in 1806 where he remained until raised to the House of Lords in 1812. He was not a great contributor to debates in either House, but he was strongly opposed to Catholic emancipation. In 1829 he was appointed Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, a post he held for just one year. On his return to England, he retired from political life. Percy served as Chancellor of Cambridge University from 1840 until 1847.
