From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Colonel Robert Peel Dawson (1818 – 2 September 1877) was an Irish Member of Parliament. He was one of the Dawson family of Castledawson and lived at Moyola Park, County Londonderry. He served as MP for County Londonderry from 1859 to 1874.

He was the son of The Rt. Hon. George Robert Dawson and Mary Peel, daughter of Sir Robert Peel, 1st Baronet and sister of Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Sir Robert Peel, 2nd Baronet.

His daughter, Mary, married Lord Adolphus John Spencer Churchill Chichester, younger son of Edward Chichester, 4th Marquess of Donegall; thus his grandson was the MP Robert Chichester and his great-great-grandson was Lord Moyola, Prime Minister of Northern Ireland.
