Offices Held

Sheriff, Berks. 1826-7.


Mount, a Berkshire squire, came in for Yarmouth on the Worsley Holmes interest (he was at Eton with (Sir) Leonard Thomas Worsley Holmes*). He vacated only a few months later and the object seems to have been to oblige government, since he was succeeded by the secretary to the Admiralty, John Wilson Croker, who had lost his seat at the general election. He died 10 Apr. 1869.
