George Spencer-Churchill (1876)


British peer, styled Earl of Sunderland until 1857, Marquess of Blandford between 1857 and 1883, and 8th Duke of Marlborough from 1883 to 1892.

Marlborough was the eldest son of John Spencer-Churchill, 7th Duke of Marlborough (1822–1883), who served as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland and Lord President of the Council, and Lady Frances Anne Emily Vane (1822–1899). He was the elder brother of Lord Randolph Churchill and the uncle of Winston Churchill.

In 1863 Marlborough joined the British Army, purchasing a commission in the rank of Lieutenant in the Royal Horse Guards. He was initiated into the Freemasonry in January 1871 along with his brother Randolph, in the Churchill Lodge in London. In the following years, he was also initiated into the Ancient Order of Druids.

Marlborough was twice married and had five children. The 8th Duke of Marlborough died on 9 November 1892, aged 48 at Blenheim Palace, and was succeeded by his only legitimate son, Charles, Marquess of Blandford.
