Charles Paulet, 13th Marquess of Winchester

Charles Ingoldsby Burroughs-Paulet, 13th Marquess of Winchester PC (27 January 1764 – 29 November 1843) was a British peer and courtier, styled Earl of Wiltshire from 1794 until 1800.

Life[edit]

Baptized as Charles Ingoldsby Paulet, he was the eldest son of George Paulet, a courtier, and was educated at Eton and Clare College, Cambridge.[1] In 1774, his father became heir presumptive to some peerages and estates of his third cousin Harry Powlett, 6th Duke of Bolton. After graduating from Cambridge, Paulet was commissioned as an ensign into the 1st Regiment of Foot Guards, serving from 1784–86. He then sat in the Commons as Member of Parliament (MP) for Truro from 1792–96. His father succeeded as Marquess of Winchester in 1794, giving Paulet the courtesy title of Earl of Wiltshire. In 1796 he returned to a part-time military life as Lt.-Colonel of the North Hampshire Militia and in 1798 became Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire. In 1800 he succeeded his father as Marquess of Winchester.[2]

In 1812, Lord Winchester became Groom of the Stole to George III and continued as such under George IV and up until the death of William IV in 1837.[2] When Queen Victoria came to the throne that year, the office was abolished as to the Sovereign – Prince Albert continued to have one, as did the Prince of Wales until the complete abolition of the office in 1901. On 8 August 1839, he added the name of Burroughs to his own, when he inherited the property of Dame Sarah Salusbury (née Burroughs), under the terms of her will.[2]

Lord Winchester died in 1843 and his titles passed to his eldest son, John.[2]

Family[edit]

Paulet married Anne Andrews (daughter of John Andrews of Shotley Hall, near Shotley Bridge) on 31 July 1800[2] and they had seven children:
