Background[edit] Lowry-Corry was the younger son of Somerset Lowry-Corry, 2nd Earl Belmore, and Lady Juliana Butler, daughter of Henry Butler, 2nd Earl of Carrick.[1] Political career[edit] Lowry-Corry entered Parliament for County Tyrone in 1825, a seat he held until his death 48 years later,[2][3] and was sworn of the Privy Council in 1835.[4] He served as Comptroller of the Household under Sir Robert Peel between 1834 and 1835, as a Civil Lord of the Admiralty under Peel between 1841 and 1845, as First Secretary of the Admiralty under Peel again between 1845 and 1846. Under Lord Derby between 1858 and 1859 and as Vice-President of the Committee on Education between 1867 and 1867. The latter year Derby promoted him to First Lord of the Admiralty with a seat in the cabinet, a position he held until December 1868, the last nine months under the premiership of Benjamin Disraeli. His long continuous service meant he was Father of the House from 1868. Family[edit] Lowry-Corry married Lady Harriet Ashley-Cooper, daughter of Cropley Ashley-Cooper, 6th Earl of Shaftesbury by his wife Lady Anne Spencer, fourth daughter of George Spencer, 4th Duke of Marlborough, in 1830 and had issue:

Armar Henry Lowry-Corry (14 March 1836 – 9 September 1893), who was married and had issue Montagu Corry, 1st Baron Rowton (8 October 1838 – 9 November 1903), who was Private Secretary to Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli and was created Lord Rowton in 1880.

Lowry-Corry survived his wife Lady Harriet by five years and died in March 1873, aged 69.[3] References[edit]
