Lascelles, Henry, 3rd Earl of Harewood (1797 -1857)

Henry Lascelles was born in 1797 at Harewood, Yorkshire, the second son of Henry Lascelles, 2nd Earl of Harewood, and Henrietta Sebright, daughter of Sir John Sebright, 7th Baronet.
He was commissioned as an ensign in the 1st Foot Guards in 1814 and fought in the Battle of Waterloo when he was slightly wounded by an exploding shell while carrying the standard of his battalion of the regiment. He went onto half-pay in 1820, the year he began to serve part-time as a lieutenant in the Yorkshire Hussars Yeomanry, although he did not retire from the regular army until 1831. He sat as Member of Parliament for Northallerton from 1826 to 1831, and also served as Lord Lieutenant of the West Riding of Yorkshire between 1846 and 1857. In 1841 on the death of his father he became 3rd Earl of Harewood.
On 5 July 1823 Viscount Lascelles (known as such from 1820) married Lady Louisa Thynne (ca. 1808–1859), daughter of Thomas Thynne, 2nd Marquess of Bath. They had thirteen children, two of whom died in their teens.
The Earl sustained a fractured skull and other injuries while fox hunting and died four weeks later in 1857 from his injuries, aged 59 years.
