Biographical history

Francis Henry Egerton (1756-1829) was a manuscript collector and a patron of learning. He was educated at Eton College (1766-1773), and at Christ Church, Oxford, where he matriculated on March 27, 1773. In 1776 Egerton was elected to a fellowship at All Souls College. In 1780 Egerton was appointed prebendary (an honorary canon) of Durham through his father's influence. He was obliged to resign his fellowship in 1782. Egerton spent long periods away from his parishes, both in England and abroad, pursuing a wide range of scholarly interests, and amassing a large collection of manuscripts. He was elected F.R.S. (Fellow of the Royal Society) in 1784 and F.S.A. in 1791, but his writings on classical, historical, and technical subjects, generally published privately, exhibited steadily increasing eccentricity. He also published several biographical and genealogical works. Following his brother's death on October 21, 1823, Egerton succeeded as eighth earl of Bridgewater, Viscount Brackley, and Baron Ellesmere. Egerton died in Paris on February 11, 1829. All his titles became extinct with him.
