He was prominent in the affairs of the Royal Agricultural Society and owner of a prize-winning herd of short-horn cattle. He served as a Tory Member of Parliament MP for the Riding from to , after which he sat in the House of Lords , having succeeded to the title on the death of his father. From to he had sat as an Ultra-Tory MP. He was born at the family's town house in London their country seat was at Duncombe Park , just outside Helmsley in the North Riding. Arthur Duncombe and the Hon. Octavius Duncombe. When the colourful Radical MP Thomas Slingsby Duncombe died in , it was noted in a piece appearing in a of newspapers that.

The most comical contrast to Tom Duncombe was his cousin, the present Lord Feversham, a heavy, solid, goodnatured man, whose speeches are of the most ponderous and soporific character - "a man whose talk is of bullocks" and whose opinions were of the extreme Conservative and Protectionist colour. When Faversham talked of bullocks, he did so as one of the leading breeders and exhibitors of short-horn cattle; animals from the Duncombe Park herd won prizes at Smithfield , [14] at the Royal Agricultural Show, and at the Paris International Exposition of , [15] although he came to deplore the prevalence of judging criteria which led to prizes going to animals which had been over-fattened, to the detriment of their health and that of the breed.

Duncombe was a Tory; seconding the Loyal Address in , he said that "the constitution stood so firm on its basis, was so beautifully connected in all its parts, and was so admirably adapted to all classes of society, that it was impossible but that all who enjoyed the blessing of living under it should perceive its advantages over any other system of government. When the Duke of Wellington decided that Catholic emancipation had to be conceded, Duncombe remained opposed to any measure of Catholic emancipation; once the measure was passed he accepted it was irreversible, but remained unreconciled to those who had granted it an ' ultra-Tory '.

Duncombe rarely spoke in Parliament, other than to present petitions. However, he gave his moral support to and exerted himself on behalf of the Factory Reform movement; when Richard Oastler wrote to MPs in seeking their support, Duncombe was the only one to reply. It is the cause of justice.. It is the cause of real humanity, of Christian benevolence Like Oastler, he opposed the Poor Law Amendment Act of he voted against its Third Reading [27] but he had been absent from all of the committee stage proceedings.

Debating the Whig Poor Law Amendment Bill of intended to extend the life of the Poor Law Commission for five years he denounced the Act: "It was a measure which made poverty a crime; which incarcerated men who were guilty of no other crime but misery and distress, in gaols and dungeons; which cut asunder the dearest ties of human nature, fathers from their children, husbands from their wives; and it was a measure in his belief calculated more than any other to alienate the feelings of the people from the laws and institutions of their country, and upon these grounds he was determined to give it his strenuous and uncompromising opposition.

His support of Oastler was not only political but personal. In , he presented a petition from Huddersfield supporting the refusal of its magistrates to call out the military to suppress anti-Poor Law disturbances [31] in which Oastler had been prominent. In he intervened in a Commons debate to obtain the retraction of a description of Oastler as an incendiary by a government minister. In he stood with and was elected with Charles Tennyson Member of Parliament for the two-member borough constituency of Great Grimsby. Tennyson asserted his constituents had represented to him the need for both members for the seat to hold similar views; acceding to their wishes he had selected Duncombe as his running mate.

In Duncombe was called upon to stand for election as a 'firm upholder of the Protestant cause' opponent of Catholic emancipation in the prestigious four-member county constituency of Yorkshire. In , when Duncombe stood again for Yorkshire, Henry Brougham , a Whig-Radical standing in the same constituency said of him.

Mr Duncombe is a man from whom I differ. I differed from him in respect of the Test acts and on the Catholic Bill. But we have sat in Parliament two years on the same benches, and I declare to you I never saw a man whose conduct did him more honour, or who was more perfectly independent.

He has despised place and power, and given an honest and consistent opposition to many of the measures of government, and I can scarcely call to mind one question upon which, during the two years I have mentioned, we have voted on opposite sides. I think it fair to say thus much, for many men might be offered to you who would be much less deserving of your support than is the Hon.

William Duncombe [40]. None of Duncombe's colleagues offered themselves for re-election in , but again there were three other candidates with ificant backing Brougham, another Whig, and a Wellingtonian Tory. Unlike the election of they were not immediately elected: this time a fifth candidate nominated himself and demanded a poll, [41] The fifth candidate having received a mere handful of votes by the end of the first day of polling, the poll was closed on the second day, at which point Duncombe was third behind the two Whig candidates.

The four remaining candidates were therefore declared elected. In the general election, Duncombe was again requisitioned to stand: he accepted the invitation, but withdrew before the actual poll, it being clear that Reform candidates would take all four seats. In the reformed parliament, there were separate two-member county constituencies for each of the three ridings of Yorkshire. Duncombe stood in the North Riding of Yorkshire as the sole Tory candidate.

In December he headed the poll ahead of two competing Reformers; [43] John Charles Ramsden supported by the Whig grandees a West Riding industrialist and former Whig MP for Yorkshire, and Edward Stillingfleet Cayley , an independent of Liberal sympathies who farmed locally and put himself forward as a friend of the interests of small agriculturalists: Cayley took the second seat. Usually, the other MP was a Liberal; an by-election which briefly gave the riding two Conservative MPs saw this analysis from a Liberal newspaper: "Lord Feversham is a great Parliamentary proprietor.

He keeps several seats in the House of Commons, at great expense and with jealous care; and very naturally he does as he will with his own. When one of his Parliamentary saddles is vacant a relative usually has the preference. Three of the favoured family happen just now to be thus mounted. Nobody ever hears of them in the legislative field; but who has any right to ask a question? By the law of the land the head of the House of Duncombe has the might to be represented in the Lower House of Parliament by three of his immediate kinsmen, and in our electoral system might is right.

He died in February , aged 69, [53] and was succeeded by his son, William Ernest , who was created Earl of Feversham the following year. Lady Feversham died in March The Right Honourable.
