Algernon Percy, 6th Duke of Northumberland


Algernon Percy, 6th Duke of Northumberland

Algernon George Percy, 6th Duke of Northumberland, KG, PC (20 May 1810–2 January 1899) was a British Conservative politician.

His father, George Percy, Lord Lovaine, was the eldest son of the 1st Earl of Beverley (formerly Lord Algernon Percy), a younger son of the 1st Duke of Northumberland. From his father's succession as second Earl of Beverley in 1830, Percy was styled Lord Lovaine. In 1865, Lord Beverley inherited the Dukedom of Northumberland from his first cousin, the 4th Duke, and thenceforth Lovaine was styled Earl Percy.

He sat in the House of Commons as a Member of Parliament for Bere Alston (1831–1832) and later for Northumberland North (1852–1867). He served briefly as Vice-President of the Board of Trade in Lord Derby's second government. In 1867 Lord Percy succeeded to the Dukedom of Northumberland and entered the House of Lords. He became Lord Lieutenant of Northumberland in 1877, and in 1878 joined Lord Beaconsfield's second government as Lord Privy Seal, a post he held until the fall of the government in 1880. He was made a Knight of the Garter in 1886.
