About

Charles Philips 1708 - 1747 Oil on Canvas 27 x 25.75 inches framed 21 x 22 ½ inches, 53.5 x 57 cm Provenance: B. Thynne Esq., Westlands, West Grinstead, Horsham, Sussex In a carved early 18th century frame Signed ll. Thomas Thynne, 2nd Viscount Weymouth (21 May 1710 – 1751) was an English peer, descended from the first Sir John Thynne of Longleat House. Thomas Thynne was born on 21 May 1710, the son of another Thomas Thynne and his wife Lady Mary Villiers. His father died a month before the young Thomas was born. On 28 July 1714, upon the death of his great uncle Thomas Thynne, 1st Viscount Weymouth, though he was only four years old, he inherited Longleat House and its great estates and succeeded to the Baronetcy of Thynne, of Kempsford, Gloucestershire, and (by special remainder) to the titles of Baron Thynne of Warminster, Wiltshire, and Viscount Weymouth, of Dorset. In 1733 he was appointed High Steward of Tamworth and was also Grand Master of the Premier Grand Lodge of England from 1735 to 1736. Between 4 December 1739 and 1751, he held the Royal offices of Keeper of Hyde Park, Keeper of the Mall, and Ranger of St. James's Park. Shortly after his Hyde Park appointment, Weymouth began the construction of the Serpentine lakes at Longleat, apparently in imitation of Hyde Park's Serpentine. On 6 December 1726, Weymouth married firstly Lady Elizabeth Sackville, daughter of Lionel Sackville, 1st Duke of Dorset. After her death on 19 June 1729, he married, secondly, Lady Louisa Carteret, daughter of John Carteret, 2nd Earl Granville. With his second wife he had two sons, Thomas Thynne, 1st Marquess of Bath (1734–1796), and Henry Carteret, 1st Baron Carteret (1735–1826). Weymouth died on 12 January 1750/51, at Horningsham, Wiltshire, and was buried there on 22 January.
