From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Robert Fulke Greville (1800 – 12 September 1867) was a politician, soldier and landowner of the early Victorian era, the son of Regency courtier Robert Fulke Greville.

Greville stood as a Parliamentary candidate for Pembrokeshire in the general election of 1831, but was defeated, and went to live abroad, embarking on a military career. Returning to the family seat at Milford Haven in 1853, he made great efforts to have the railway extended to the town, which had been founded by his uncle, Charles Francis Greville. He constructed a pier and other facilities to encourage sea traffic with Ireland. He also constructed gasworks and waterworks, eventually running out of money for improvements and dying in debt.
