Background and education

Charles John Shore was born in Calcutta, the son of John Shore, 1st Baron Teignmouth and Charlotte, only daughter of James Cornish, a medical practitioner at Teignmouth. He was educated at a private school in Clapham and, from 1808, a school in Chobham, Surrey.

Political career

Lord Teignmouth served as MP for Marylebone from 1838-1841. He came third in the poll in the 1837 General Election, but took his seat on 3 March 1838, after Sir Samuel Whalley's election was declared void.[2]
