Dodington, George Bubb (1691-1762), originally Bubb, he took the name Dodington upon inheriting some property in 1720. In 1715 he entered Parliament, and sat for Bridgwater from 1722 to 1754. Beyond his diary he is chiefly known for his fickleness, but he has the merit of having spoken out on behalf of Admiral Byng. He became Baron Melcombe before his death.
