From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

William Henton Carver (27 May 1868 – 28 January 1961)[1] was a Conservative Party politician in the United Kingdom who served as a Member of Parliament (MP) for Howdenshire from 1926 to 1947.

He was first elected at a by-election in 1926, following the resignation of the Conservative MP Stanley Jackson to take up the post of Governor of Bengal. Carver held the seat until he stood down at the 1945 general election.

A steam locomotive of the LNER Thompson Class B1 was named after him.
