From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

William Henry Fellowes (15 July 1769 – 23 August 1837), of Ramsey Abbey in Huntingdonshire and Haverland Hall in Norfolk, was a British Member of Parliament.

Fellowes was the son of William Fellowes and Lavinia Smyth. He was elected to the House of Commons for Huntingdon in 1796, a seat he held until 1807, and then represented Huntingdonshire from 1807 to 1830. He married Emma Benyon, daughter of Richard Benyon (and granddaughter of Richard Benyon Senior, the Governor of Fort St George) in 1805. Their eldest surviving son Edward Fellowes was elevated to the peerage as Baron de Ramsey in 1887. Their third son, Richard, was Conservative MP for Berkshire. Two of their grandsons, William Fellowes, 2nd Baron de Ramsey, and Ailwyn Fellowes, 1st Baron Ailwyn, were both Conservative government ministers. Fellowes died in August 1837, aged 68. Another grandson, James Herbert Benyon, was Lord Lieutenant of Berkshire.
