ELDEST surviving son of the late Sir Charles Tennant of the Glen, Peeblesshire, and Emma, daughter of the late Richard Winsloe, Mount Nebo, Taunton, the head of the great chemical firm of St. Rollox was born 31st May, 1859, and was educated at Eton and at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he graduated M.A. in 1885. He is a barrister of the Inner Temple, and has travelled extensively in Africa, India, and America. In 1892 he entered upon a career of politics, and besides acting as assistant private secretary to Sir George Trevelyan at the Scottish Office, he unsuccessfully contested the Partick Division of Lanarkshire in 1892 and the united counties of Peebles and Selkirk in 1900. At the General Election in 1906, however, he was returned for Salisbury in the Liberal interest. In the same year he succeeded his father in the baronetcy, which had been created in 1885, and also in the proprietorship of the Glen, in Peeblesshire, where he owns about 5,200 acres. He was appointed Lord Lieutenant of Peeblesshire in 1908. In 1895 Sir Edward married Pamela, younger daughter of the Hon. Percy Wyndham, by whom he has a family of four sons and one daughter.
