George William "2nd Earl of Bristol" Hervey
Birth: Aug. 31, 1721
Death: Mar. 18, 1775

Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland 1776-77. He never visited the country duing this period, but used his influence to obtain the Bishopric of Cloyne for his brother, Frederick Augustus (1730-1803). Frederick then went on to obtain the rich bishopric of Derry, and eventually became himself Earl of Bristol as well, becoming one of the richest men in the kingdom. He built a magnificent house (now in ruins) at Downhill and in the grounds constructed this mausoleum in memory of the brother who gave him a start in life. The view is from a window of the house. (bio by: David Conway)
