Family and Education
b. 8 June 1714, 4th s. of Sir William Courtenay, 2nd Bt. M.P., and bro. of Sir William Courtenay, 3rd Bt. educ. Westminster 1725; Magdalen, Oxf. 1731. m. 14 Apr. 1737, Hon. Catherine Bathurst, da. of Allen, 1st Baron Bathurst, 2s. 2da.
Courtenay was defeated at Honiton in 1747 and returned after a contest in 1754. He was invariably counted as a Tory. In Bute’s list of December 1761 he is classed ‘Tory—Bute’. But he does not appear in Fox’s list of Members favourable to the peace preliminaries, December 1762, which must not, however, be taken to suggest that he was against them.
He died 30 Apr. 1763.
