Thomas Bulkeley, 7th Viscount Bulkeley

Thomas James Bulkeley, 7th Viscount Bulkeley, later Warren-Bulkeley, (12 December 1752 – 3 June 1822) was an English aristocrat and politician.


Thomas James Bulkeley was the posthumous son and heir to James Bulkeley, 6th Viscount Bulkeley, who died aged 35 in 1752.[1] He was educated as fellow commoner at Jesus College, Oxford before making the Grand Tour with the Marquess of Buckingham;[2] he gave a copy of Guido Reni's St Michael subduing the Devil, acquired in Rome, to Jesus College chapel.[3]

Like several of his ancestors, Bulkeley became MP for the county of Anglesey, returned in 1774 and 1780.[1] In 1777 he married Elizabeth Harriot, only daughter and heir of Sir George Warren. Though he voted against Fox's East India Bill in 1783, he attended a 1784 meeting of MPs interested in uniting the Whigs and Tories.

In May 1784 he was created an English peer, Baron Bulkeley, of Beaumaris. He supported Pitt on the regency question in 1788. He spoke in the Lords on the election treating act in 1796. He opposed the 'Adultery bill' in 1800. In the 1806 impeachment trial of Viscount Melville, Bulkeley voted Melville guilty on the sixth and seventh charges.[2]

In 1802 Bulkeley legally changed his name by Royal Licence to Thomas James Warren-Bulkeley. He died without issue in 1822 in Englefield Green. His wife died in 1832; her will left property to a relation George Fleming Leicester, under condition he change his surname to Warren.
