between 1766 and 1778, was a British peer and politician.
Mexborough was the son of John Savile, 1st Earl of
, and Sarah (née Delaval).

as this was an Irish peerage it
did not entitle him to a seat in the British House of Lords (although it did entitle him to a seat in the

was elected to the House of Commons for Lincoln, a seat he retained until 1812.
Lord Mexborough married Elizabeth, daughter of Henry Stephenson, in
1782. He died in February 1830, aged 68, and was succeeded in the
