Stafford Henry Northcote (1818-1887), 1st Earl of Iddesleigh.

Northcote (pronounced "Northcut") was born at Portland Place, London, on 27 October 1818.[1] He was the eldest son of Henry Stafford Northcote (1792–1850), eldest son of Sir Stafford Henry Northcote, 7th Baronet. His mother was Agnes Mary (died 1840), daughter of Thomas Cockburn. His paternal ancestors had long been settled in Devon, tracing their descent from Galfridas de Nordcote who settled there in 1103.

The family home was situated at Pyne's House, Exeter. Northcote was educated at Eton and Balliol College, Oxford and was called to the bar, Inner Temple, in 1847.
