From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ernest Augustus Vaughan, 4th Earl of Lisburne, Co. Antrim, Viscount Lisburne and Lord Vaughan, Baron of Fethard, Co. Tipperary, in the Peerage of Ireland, (30 October 1800 – 8 November 1873), was known during his father's lifetime as Viscount Vaughan from 1820 to 1831, and was a British Member of Parliament.

Lisburne was the son of John Vaughan, 3rd Earl of Lisburne &c., whom he succeeded on May 18, 1831, by his spouse the Hon. Lucy (d. 1821), fifth daughter of William, 2nd Viscount Courtenay. As this was an Irish peerage after 1801 it did no longer entitled him to a seat in the House of Lords unless elected as a Representative Peer. He was instead elected to the House of Commons for Cardiganshire in 1854, a seat he held until 1859.

The Earl of Lisburne married firstly, on August 27, 1835, Mary (d. 1851), second daughter of Sir Laurence Palk, Bt., by his spouse Lady Elizabeth Vaughan. He remarried April 5, 1853, the Hon. Harriet Elizabeth, daughter of Colonel Henry Hugh Mitchell, she being a Maid of Honour to Queen Adelaide.

There was issue from both marriages including his eldest son and heir Ernest Vaughan, 5th Earl of Lisburne (b. 1836) who succeeded to the titles.
