From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thomas Bateson, 1st Baron Deramore (4 June 1819 – 1 December 1890), known as Sir Thomas Bateson, 2nd Bt from 1863 until 1885, was a British peer and Conservative Party politician.

He was the son of Sir Robert Bateson, 1st Baronet, of Belvoir Park. Bateson succeeded to the baronetcy on his father's death in 1863 and was created Baron Deramore, of Belvoir, in the County of Down in 1885. As he had no sons, both the baronetcy and the barony passed by special remainder to his younger brother, George, who became the second baron and third baronet.

Succeeding his older brother, Robert, who had died the year before, Bateson was first elected to parliament in 1844 as a Member of Parliament (MP) for County Londonderry, but he lost this seat in 1857. He was returned again in 1864 as a member for Devizes, which seat he retained until 1885. He served as a Junior Lord of the Treasury in Lord Derby's short-lived 1852 protectionist government.
