Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Edward Ponsonby, 8th Earl of Bessborough, KP, CB, CVO (1 March 1851 1 December 1920) was a British peer. Ponsonby was the eldest son of Rev. Walter Ponsonby and his wife, Louisa, the daughter of Edward Eliot, 3rd Earl of St Germans. He qualified as a barrister in 1879 and was secretary to Lord Robert Grosvenor (a younger son of Hugh Grosvenor, 1st Duke of Westminster) at HM Treasury from 1880-84 and to Arthur Peel, Speaker of the House of Commons from 1884-95. After Peel''s retirement in 1895, Ponsonby was appointed a CB that year and also took the courtesy title of Viscount Duncannon following his father''s accession to the earldom of Bessborough, also in that year. In 1898, he was High Sheriff of County Carlow, appointed a CVO in 1902 and a KP in 1914. He was also involved in business and became a director of the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway in March 1895, and served as its Chairman from February 1908 until his death.
