Luttrell, Henry

(?1765-1851)
   The natural son of Henry, 2nd Earl Carhampton, was born at Woodstock, Oxfordshire. His father used his influence to obtain for him a seat for Clonmines, County Wexford, in the last Irish parliament (1798), and a post in the Irish government, which he subsequently commuted for a pension. He was introduced to London society through the Duchess of Devonshire and soon gained the reputation of being a most agreeable, accomplished, and entertaining wit and poet. He was friendly with Sir John Henry Moore (see entry) and it is said that they were "seldom apart, and always hating, abusing, and ridiculing each other" (DNB). He died at his house, No. 31 Brompton Square, London. Some of his publications: Lines written at Ampthill Park in the autumn of 1818, 1819. Letters to Julia, in Rhyme, 1822 (3rd edition). A Rhymer in Rome, 1826. Crockford House, 1827 (a satire). Some of his poems: "Appeal to Chemistry," "City Shower," "Death, Thy Certainty is Such," "Letters of a Dandy to a Dolly," "On a Man Run Over by an Omnibus," "The Description of a London Fog."
