Notes for Rt Rev Sir George FLEMING 2nd Bt
Bishop of Carlisle.

Sir George Fleming, 2nd Baronet (1667 – 2 July 1747) was a British churchman.

A member of the old Westmorland family, Fleming was the fifth son of Sir Daniel Le Fleming of Rydal Hall. He became Canon of Carlisle Cathedral in 1700, Archdeacon of Carlisle in 1705, Dean in 1727 and finally Bishop of Carlisle in 1734. He succeeded as 2nd Baronet in 1736. A successor, the Revd Sir Richard Le Fleming Bt, became rector of both Windermere and Grasmere and gave William Wordsworth a home at Rydal Mount.

Before moving to Rydal Hall, the Le Fleming family lived at Coniston Hall, which is now owned by the National Trust.
