Francis Monckton

Francis Monckton (7 March 1844 – 30 September 1926) was an English Conservative politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1871 to 1885.

Monckton was the eldest son of Gen. Henry Monckton of Stretton Hall, Staffordshire and his wife Ann Smythe. He was educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford.[1]

In 1871 he was returned unopposed as Member of Parliament (MP) for Staffordshire West on the death of the previous incumbent, holding the seat until 1885.[2] He inherited the estates of Stretton and Somerford Hall from his uncle, George Monckton. He was High Sheriff of Staffordshire for 1895–96.

Monckton married Evelyn Mary Heber-Percy, daughter of Algernon Charles Heber-Percy and Emily Heber, on 16 July 1889.
