Henry AYLMER, 2nd Baron Aylmer 1694-1754

Aylmer's armorial stamp (British Armorial Bindings)

Biographical Note

Son of Matthew Aylmer, Admiral and 1st Baron Aylmer of Balrath, from whom he inherited the title and family estates in 1720. He was MP for Rye 1724-27, an equerry to George I 1714-27, and comptroller of the Mint 1727-54.


The Armorials Database records a number of books, from various libraries, with Aylmer's armorial stamp. The extent of his library is not known; his will includes a list of pictures, furniture and jewellery to be given to his younger son John, but there is no mention of books. These would have passed with the rest of his estate to his eldest son Henry, who became the 3rd Baron.
