Caricature by Ape published in Vanity Fair in 1885.

Sir Frederick George Milner, 7th Baronet, GCVO (7 November 1849 8 June 1931)[1] was a British Conservative Party politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1883 to 1885, from 1890 to 1906

Educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford, he was elected as one of the two Members of Parliament (MPs) for York at a by-election in 1883, but was defeated at the 1885 general election.[2]

He was returned to the Commons at a by-election in 1890 as the MP for Bassetlaw,[3] and held the seat until his defeat at the 1906 general election.[3] Milner then retired from politics due to problems with his hearing, but continued with his work to help ex-servicemen.[2]

Milner married, in 1880, Adeline Gertrude Denison, second daughter of William Beckett-Denison, by his wife Hon. Helen Duncombe, daughter of William Duncombe, 2nd Baron Feversham. Lady Milner died on 7 July 1902.[4] They had one son, William Frederick Victor Mordaunt Milner, who succeeded to the baronetcy.
