English banker and peer; born in London 1845; son of Viscount de Stern, senior partner of the firm of Stern Brothers. He was educated at Magdalene College, Cambridge, and was for some time a member of the firm established by his father. He has, however, retired from business, and is now (1905) a justice of the peace for Surrey and London, an honorary colonel of the Fourth Volunteer Battalion of the East-Surrey Regiment, and vice-president of the London and Counties Radical Union. After several attempts to enter Parliament (Mid-Surrey, 1880, 1884; Tiverton, 1885; and Ipswich, 1886) he was elected in May, 1891, by the Stowmarket division of Suffolk, which he represented until his elevation to the peerage (July 19, 1895). He is also a Portuguese viscount by hereditary right.
