Robert Fulke Greville

Robert Fulke Greville (1751-1824), son of Francis Greville the 1st Earl of Warwick (1719-1773), The Hon Lieutenant-Colonel

The Hon. Robert Fulke Greville was a younger son of Francis Greville, the 1st Earl of Warwick and Elizabeth Hamilton and brother of George Greville (1746-1816) the 2nd Earl of Warwick. He was MP for Warwick between 1774 and 1780 supporting the Tory government and MP for New Windsor from 1796 until 1806. He acted as Equerry to King George III from 1781 until 1797 and was Groom of the Bedchamber between 1800 and 1818. In 1792 he accompanied the artist John 'Warwick' Smith on his tour around Wales to Hafod in Cardiganshire.
He is possibly also to be identified with the 'Colonel Greville' from whom William Roscoe acquired a 16th century Netherlandish painting of 'The Nativity' (WAG 1016) formerly attributed to Cornelis Engebrechtsz. (about 1465-1527), which was then attributed to Jan Van Eyck.
