Offices Held


In 1704 George Naylor, ‘a gentleman of £4,000 p.a.’,1 married the eldest daughter of the 1st Lord Pelham. Returned for Seaford in 1706 on the Pelham interest, he bought Hurstmonceaux from the Earl of Sussex in 1708 for £38,215.2 In 1711 Lord Pelham died, appointing Naylor one of his executors and guardian of his heir, the future Duke of Newcastle, then a minor. Re-elected for Seaford in 1715, he voted for the septennial bill, but parted political company with Newcastle during the split in the Whig party by voting with Walpole on the charges against Cadogan in 1717 and on the peerage bill in 1719. Not put up again, he died 29 June 1730.
