2nd Earl Fortescue Hugh FORTESCUE69 was born on 13 February 1783 in Pall Mall, St James, Westminster, London. He was baptized on 13 February 1783. Baptised same day as birth He died on 14 September 1861 in Exeter, Devon. Hugh, born 13th February 1783, succeeded his father Hugh, becoming Viscount Ebrington and the 2nd Earl Fortescue. He was educated at Eton and Brasenose College, Oxford. On 4th July 1817 he married his first wife, Lady Susan Ryder, daughter of the 1st Earl of Harrowby. They had issue, but she died on 30th July 1827. In 1841 he married again, Elizabeth, daughter of P Geale and widow of Sir W Somerville Bart.; they had no issue. Hugh died at Exeter on 14th September 1861, aged 78. He was generally held in high esteem.
In 1804 he was first returned to House of Commons as M.P. for Barnstaple. From 1820 to 1831 he sat for Tavistock and in 1831 he was chosen Knight of the Shire for North Devon. He served in this role until he became Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, when he went to the House of Lords as Lord Fortescue. He was Lord Lieutenant until Sir Robert Peel's accession in 1841.
In 1809, by some jobbery obtained a military commission, he set out to join the staff of Sir Arthur Wellesey; for though not a soldier he seems to have longed to see active service. Arriving at Gibralter on the eve of the campaign of Talavera, he was at a loss to know how to join the British Army; when the Spanish General, Venegas, very politely offered to escort him to it with his own army. Unfortunately Venegas failed to obey his orders, which, if faithfully followed, might have changed the fortunes of the campaign. Wellesley after fighting the Battle of Talavera ( July 26, 1809 ) retreated into Portugal; and after much unprofitable pottering Venegas was on August 11th hopelessly beaten at the battle of Almoncid. Thus, to the regret of at least one of his grandsons ( Seymour ), Lord Ebrington never joined Sir Arthur Wellesley's army for the vacancy on the Staff was meanwhile filled up.
In 1823 he published a Memorandum of Two Conversations he had with the Emperor Napoleon at Porto Ferrajo on the 6th and 8th of December 1814.
Lord Ebrington first attracted notice in the Commons by his protest against the infliction of the sentence of the pillory upon the famous Lord Cochrane. Napoleon, as shall be seen, was aware of the incident or, as is more probable, had been informed of it for the occasion. Later Lord Ebrington became prominent in the Reform Movement of 1830 and was selected by McCauley himself as leader of the independent Reformers in the Commons in September 1831, when the Ministry threatened to resign in consequence of its defeat in the Lords. In another letter McCauley speaks of the effect which he had seen produced in the House "by very rude (unpolished) sentences stammered by such as Lord Althorp and Lord Ebrington".
These little incidents are related merely to show that Napoleon's interlocutor was a person of considerable force of character. He was a man, and Napoleon knew a man when met one. But Napoleon's extreme urbanity is probably to be accounted for by the fact that Lord Ebrington was son of a Grenville, and that his mother's brother William, Lord Grenville, was one of Napoleon's most resolute opponents, whom it would be a great advantage to him to conciliate. Be that as it may, the two men met and got on very well together. Lord Ebrington left with his family a verbal tradition of the extraordinary charm of the Napoleon's smile.
In May 1841 Hugh, the first Earl, died and Lord Ebrington became the 2nd Earl Fortescue. From 1846 to 50 he was Lord Steward of the Queen's Household. He was also a Knight of the Garter, Lord Lieutenant and Vice-Admiral of Devon, and Colonel of 1st Devon Militia.

The book "Looking Back" written by Seymour - Hugh's Son - is written In Chronological order and it says
On page 8 "In the winter of 1859 my father, already Viscount Ebringham accompanied by his brother John, who had developed consumptive tendencies and was ordered abroad, by his doctors, to Madeira" (My comment is that Hugh was already a Lord so he could have been called to the Lords earlier in than on his father's death.)
