Edward des Bouverie
Sir Edward des Bouverie, 2nd Baronet (c. 1690 – 21 November 1736), was a British landowner and politician.
He was born in about 1690, the eldest son of London merchant William des Bouverie and his second wife Anne Urry. William des Bouverie was created a baronet in the Baronetage of Great Britain in 1714. Edward des Bouverie succeeded to his father's baronetcy on 19 May 1717, in which year he purchased the estate of Longford Castle, in Britford, Wiltshire.
He married on 7 July 1718, in the chapel at Somerset House, Strand, London, Mary, the second and youngest daughter and co-heir of John Smyth, of Beaufort buildings on the Strand, Commissioner of Excise. The second husband of her elder sister, Anne, was Michael Burke, 10th Earl of Clanricarde. Mary died on 3 January 1721, and was buried at Britford. They had no issue, and on des Bouverie's death on 21 November 1736, at Aix-en-Provence, he was succeeded by his younger brother Jacob. He was buried at Britford.
