From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sir Philip Albert Muntz, 1st Baronet (5 January 1839 – 21 December 1908) was an English businessman and politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1884 to 1906. He changed his allegiance from the Liberal Party to the Conservatives.

Muntz was the son of George Frederic Muntz of Umberslade Hall, Warwickshire and his wife Eliza Price. He was a J.P. for Warwickshire.[1] In 1881 he built Dunsmore House, a three storey Grade II listed country house near Rugby.

In 1884, Muntz was elected as a Liberal MP for Warwickshire North but the constituency was abolished under the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885. He broke with the Liberals over Home Rule and became a Conservative. He was elected MP for Tamworth which he held until his death in 1908.[2]

He was created baronet on 7 August 1902.[3]

Muntz married his cousin Rosalie Muntz, daughter of Philip Henry Muntz in 1859.[4]
