From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Francis Jack Needham, Viscount Newry (2 February 1815-6 May 1851), was an Anglo-Irish Member of Parliament.

Newry was the eldest son of Francis Needham, 2nd Earl of Kilmorey, and Jane Gun-Cuninghame. He gained the courtesy title of Viscount Newry when his father succeeded as Earl of Kilmorey in 1832. In 1841 he was elected to the House of Commons for Newry in 1841, a seat he held until his death.

Lord Newry married Anne Amelia Colville, daughter of General the Hon. Sir Charles Colville, in 1839. He died in May 1851, aged 36, predeceasing his father. His eldest son Francis succeeded in the earldom in 1880. Lady Newry died in 1900.
