From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sir Edmund Filmer, 9th Baronet (11 July 1835 – 17 December 1886)[1] was an English Conservative Party politician.

He was elected to the House of Commons at the 1859 general election as a Member of Parliament (MP) for West Kent.[2] The seat had previously been held by his father, the 8th Baronet from 1838 until his death in 1857, but that 9th Baronet's tenure was shorter, since he did not defend his seat at the next general election, 1865.[2]

Fifteen years later, Filmer returned to Parliament when he was elected a the 1880 general election as MP for Mid Kent.[3] However he resigned his seat in 1884, by taking the Chiltern Hundreds.[4][3]
