Notes for Charles Leyshon DILLWYN-VENABLES-LLEWELYN 2nd Bart
Sir Charles Leyshon Dillwyn-Venables-Llewellyn, 2nd Baronet (29 June 1870 - 24 June 1951) was a Welsh Conservative Member of Parliament (MP) who briefly represented Radnorshire in the House of Commons and served as Lord-Lieutenant of Radnorshire.

Llewellyn was born in 1870 to Sir John Dillwyn-Llewellyn, 1st Baronet and his wife who was the daughter of Sir Michael Hicks Beach, 8th Baronet. His father was High Sheriff of Glamorgan, Mayor of Swansea and MP for Swansea.
Llewellyn was elected Conservative MP for Radnorshire in January 1910 during the hung parliament of that year, but lost the seat in the election in December. He inherited the baronetcy on the death of his father in 1927. He was Lord-Lieutenant of Radnorshire from 1929 to 1949 and High Sheriff of Radnorshire in 1924.

Following his 1893 marriage to Katherine Mina, daughter of Richard Lister Venables, the Llysdinam estate came into the family and Sir Charles assumed the additional surname of Venables. He established a wildlife centre on the estate, today run by Cardiff University. His daughter, Agnes Barbara Dillwyn-Venables-Llewelyn, married naval officer Cedric Holland on 15 June 1925.
