Heneage Finch, 5th Earl of Winchilsea

Heneage Finch, 5th Earl of Winchilsea FSA (1657 – 30 September 1726) was an English peer, styled Hon. Heneage Finch until 1712.[1] He was the son of Heneage Finch, 3rd Earl of Winchilsea and Mary Seymour.

In 1683, he was appointed a Groom of the Bedchamber to the Duke of York and a captain in the Duke's Halberdiers, and was created a D.C.L of Oxford. In 1685, he retained his appointment as Groom of the Bedchamber when York succeeded as James II, was commissioned a colonel, and appointed a deputy lieutenant for Kent. He represented Hythe in James' only Parliament. He lost his posts upon the deposition of James.[1]

He inherited the earldom from his nephew Charles Finch, 4th Earl of Winchilsea in 1712. He refused to take the oaths and declined his seat in the House of Lords. Chosen a FSA in 1724, he died in 1726. Having had no children by his wife, Anne Kingsmill (1661–1720), he was succeeded by his half-brother John.[1]
