For his great-grandson, see Archie Primrose, Lord Dalmeny.

Archibald Primrose, Lord Dalmeny (2 October 1809 – 23 January 1851) was a Scottish Liberal politician, the eldest son of Archibald Primrose, 4th Earl of Rosebery and Harriett Bouverie.

Dalmeny was educated at Harrow School and Trinity College, Cambridge.[1]

On 20 September 1843, he married Lady Catherine Stanhope, the daughter of Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl Stanhope. They had three children:[2]

Dalmeny was a supporter of the Reform Act 1832, and became a Member of Parliament for Stirling Burghs in the elections held that year after the passage of the bill. From 25 April 1835 until the fall of Melbourne's Second Government in 1841, Dalmeny was a Civil Lord of the Admiralty. In Parliament, he opposed both the secret ballot and the income tax. He did not contest the seat in 1847, and left Parliament. Dalmeny fell ill with pleurisy during the Christmas season of 1850, and while apparently recovering in January, died suddenly of heart failure.[3]
