From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sir Samuel Roberts, 2nd Baronet JP (2 September 1882 – 13 December 1955) was a British politician.

Son of the Sheffield Ecclesall MP Samuel Roberts, Roberts grew up at Queen's Tower in Norfolk Park, Sheffield. He attended Harrow School and Trinity College, Cambridge before becoming a solicitor.[1]

In 1913, Roberts became a Justice of the Peace, and in 1919, the Lord Mayor of Sheffield. In 1921, he was elected as the Conservative Party MP for Hereford, and at the 1929 UK general election he switched to represent his father's former constituency of Sheffield Ecclesall. He stood down at the 1935 UK general election, serving that year as the Master Cutler.
