From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Angus Holden, 1st Baron Holden, Bt. (16 March 1833 – 25 March 1912) was an English politician, and a Liberal Party Member of Parliament (MP).

Holden was into a well-known family of Yorkshire manufacturers, and educated at Wesley College, Sheffield. He was the eldest son of Sir Isaac Holden, 1st Baronet and on the death of his father in 1897 he succeeded to the baronetcy, becoming Sir Angus Holden, 2nd Baronet.

Holden was mayor of Bradford for four years: 1878, 1879, 1880 and 1886. At the 1885 general election, he was elected as the first MP for the Eastern Division of Bradford as a Liberal, but he lost the seat in the general election of the following year. At the 1892 general election he was returned as a Gladstonian Liberal for the Buckrose Division of the East Riding which he continued to represent until he retired from the House of Commons at the 1900 general election.

In July 1905 he was raised to the peerage as Baron Holden of Alston.

After his death, he was succeeded in his titles by his son the Hon Ernest Illingworth Holden (born in 1867), who became the 3rd Baronet and the 2nd Baron Holden.
