"Horatio Walpole, 4th Earl of Orford (24 September 1717 – 2 March 1797) was an English art
historian, man of letters, antiquarian and Whig politician.
He is now largely remembered for Strawberry Hill, the home he built in Twickenham,
south-west London where he revived the Gothic style some decades before his Victorian
successors. Along with the book, his literary reputation rests on his Letters,
which are of significant social and political interest.
He was the son of Sir Robert Walpole, and cousin of Admiral Lord Nelson.
Walpole was born in London, the youngest son of British Prime Minister Sir Robert Walpole .
  At the 1741 general election Horace Walpole was elected Whig Member of Parliament for
Callington, Cornwall. He held this seat for thirteen years, although he never visited Callington.
Walpole entered Parliament shortly before his father's fall from power:
in December 1741 the Opposition won its first majority vote in the Commons for twenty years.
 In January 1742 Walpole's government was still struggling in Parliament although by the end
 of the month Horace Walpole and other family members had successfully urged the
Prime Minister to resign after a parliamentary defeat. Horace Walpole was the 4th
Earl of Orford, and the title died with him in 1797."
