Earl of Stamford 2 by GeneralVyse Earl of Stamford 2 by GeneralVyse
This is my Royal Navy lieutenants coat with the waistcoat and breeches of the replica of the costume of the 5th Earl of Stamford, George Harry Grey.

There are several paintings of him at Dunham Massey, one wearing the costume i have had made and one as shown below; [link]

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

George Harry Grey, 5th Earl of Stamford (1 October 1737 – 28 May 1819), styled Lord Grey from 1739 to 1768, was an English nobleman.

He was the eldest son of Harry Grey, 4th Earl of Stamford and Lady Mary Booth, only daughter and heir of George Booth, 2nd Earl of Warrington. He was educated at Leicester School and Queens' College, Cambridge.[1]

As Lord Grey, he was Member of Parliament for Staffordshire from 1761 until 1768, when he succeeded his father as Earl. In 1796, he was additionally created Baron Delamer and Earl of Warrington, titles held by his maternal grandfather. He married Lady Henrietta Bentinck, daughter of William Bentinck, 2nd Duke of Portland, and they had nine children including:

Henrietta Grey (1764-)
George Harry Grey, 6th Earl of Stamford (1765-1845))
Marie Grey (1767-1767)
Louisa Grey (1771-1836)
William Booth Grey (1773-1852)
Anchitel Grey (1774-1873)
Henry Grey (1776-)
Sophia Grey (1777-)
He modernised the family seat at Enville to the design of Thomas Hope. He promoted the development of the town of Ashton-under-Lyne, near Manchester, on land inherited from the Earl of Warrington.[2]

On his death at Enville in 1819 he was succeeded by his eldest son George Harry.
