John Fitzpatrick, 2nd Earl of Upper Ossory (1745-1818), Irish Peer and MP for Bedfordshire

Sitter associated with 5 portraits
Fitzpatrick succeeded his father to the earldom in 1758 but as it was an Irish peerage, it did not entitle him to a seat in the British House of Lords. He was instead elected to the House of Commons for Bedfordshire in 1767, a seat he held until 1794. In 1794, he was created Baron Upper Ossory, of Ampthill in the County of Bedford, in the Peerage of Great Britain, which gave him a seat in the House of Lords.
