Isle of Man / Charles, Earl of Derby, Lord of Mann

Isle of Man - Charles, Earl of Derby, Lord of Mann (1660 - 21 December 1672)

Charles Stanley, 8th Earl of Derby, an English nobleman, was the only son of James Stanley, 7th Earl of Derby and Charlotte de La Trémouille.

As Lord Strange, he took little part in the English Civil War. In France at the time of his father's condemnment in 1651, he petitioned unsuccessfully for the latter's life. After succeeding to the Earldom, he lived quietly at Bidston Hall, Cheshire, emerging to support Booth's unsuccessful rising in 1659. Attainted for so doing, he was restored the following year and the family's lands in the Isle of Man were returned to him by King Charles II.

He served as mayor of Liverpool, between 1666 and 1667.
