From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

David O'Connor Henchy (1810 – 1 December 1876) was an Irish Whig politician. From 1852 to 1859, he was one of the two Members of Parliament (MPs) for Kildare, representing the county in the United Kingdom House of Commons.[1]

Henchy was first elected to the Parliament at the general election in July 1852, when he defeated a Conservative opponent to succeed the Marquess of Kildare as the second of Kilkare's two MPs.[2] He was re-elected unopposed at the general election in 1857, pledged to support the creation of an independent Irish opposition, [3] but did not stand again in 1859.[4]
