From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sir Gerard Vanneck, 2nd Baronet (c. 1743-23 May 1791), was a British merchant and Member of Parliament.

Vanneck was the eldest son of Sir Joshua Vanneck, 1st Baronet, and Mary Anne Daubuz. His father was a successful London merchant who had emigrated to Great Britain from the Netherlands in 1722. He was elected to the House of Commons for Dunwich in 1768, a seat he held until 1790. In 1777 he succeeded his father as second Baronet. Vanneck died, unmarried, in May 1791 and was succeeded in the baronetcy by his younger brother Joshua, who was elevated to the peerage as Baron Huntingfield in 1796.
