Henry Drummond Wolff
Sir Henry Drummond-Wolff (1830 - October 11, 1908), son of Joseph Wolff, was a well-known English diplomat and Conservative politician, who started as a clerk in the foreign office and was created KCMG in 1862 for various services abroad.
In 1874-1880 he sat in parliament for Christchurch, and in 1880-1885 for Portsmouth, being one of the group known as the Fourth Party . In 1885 he went on a special mission to Constantinople in connection with the Egyptian question, and as a result various awkward difficulties, hinging on the sultan's suzerainty, were addressed. In 1888 he was sent as minister to Teheran, and from 1892 to 1900 was ambassador at Madrid.
