From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

George Augustus Frederick Louis Curzon-Howe, 2nd Earl Howe (16 January 1821 – 4 February 1876)[1] was a British peer and Conservative party politician.

Curzon-Howe was the eldest son of Richard William Penn Curzon-Howe, 1st Earl Howe and Harriet Georgiana Brudenell. He married Harriet Mary Sturt, daughter of Henry Charles Sturt and Lady Charlotte Penelope Brudenell, on 3 February 1846.

He was a Member of Parliament (MP) for the Southern Division of Leicestershire from 1857 to 1870.[2]

Until the death of his father, George Curzon-Howe was styled 'Viscount Curzon' (it is a British custom for a peer's heir apparent to be referred to as a viscount, if the second most senior title, held by the head of the family is a viscountcy). On his father's death in 1870, Curzon-Howe gained the title 2nd Earl Howe. On his own death on 4 February 1876 at age 55, his titles passed to his brother Richard Curzon-Howe, 3rd Earl Howe[3].


On 3 February 1846, Curzon-Howe married Harriet Mary Sturt, daughter of Henry Charles Sturt and Lady Charlotte Penelope Brudenell and they had one child:

  • Lady Harriet Alice Howe d. 13 Apr 1875
