Offices Held


Bayntun Rolt was returned for Weobley on the interest of Lord Weymouth (there was an old family connexion between the Rolts and the Thynnes) as a supporter of Lord North. On Shelburne’s peace preliminaries, 18 Feb. 1783, he voted with the Opposition; did not vote on Fox’s East India bill; but in all parliamentary lists 1783-4 is classed as a supporter of Pitt. There is no record of his having spoken in the House. He vacated his seat when Weymouth’s eldest son came of age.

Bayntun Rolt died 12 Aug. 1816.
