Frederick West (1767–1852)
Frederick West (1767–1852) was a British politician who sat in the House of Commons from 1801 to 1806.
In 1801 he served as a councilman in Denbigh and in the same year was elected Member of Parliament for Denbigh Boroughs. In 1806 he was ousted from Parliament by his brother-in-law, Robert Myddelton Biddulph. He was a captain in the Berkshire Volunteers in 1803 and in the Berkshire militia in 1808. In 1810 he became Groom of the Bedchamber. He sponsored the Viscount Kirkwall in his successful campaign for Denbigh in 1812. From 1821 to 1822 he was Sheriff of Berkshire. His son, Frederick Richard, held the seat of Denbigh from 1826 to 1830.
West married first, Charlotte, daughter of Richard Mitchell, of Culham Court at Wargrave (now Remenham) in Berkshire. She died in 1795 and he married secondly, Maria, daughter of Richard Myddleton of Chirk Castle. He inherited the properties of both his fathers-in-law. West was the father of Frederick Richard West and grandfather of William Cornwallis-West, both Members of Parliament in Denbighshire.
