About

The descendant of an ancient family of the Yorkshire aristocracy was born as John Raphael Wentworth Savile.

(1766) and 7th Baron Pollington of Longford (1753).Since these titles were created in the Peerage of the Kingdom of Ireland,he was not entitled to a hereditary seat in the House of Lords.He was a wealthy landowner in Yorkshire (about 20.000 acres) and served as Justice of the Peace(1935-1947)
and Deputy Lieutenant (1967) of the North and West Riding of Yorkshire.Tennis seems to have been his favourite sport.
