 Spencer Compton Cavendish, 8th Duke of Devonshire (1833 – 1908), styled Lord Cavendish of Keighley between 1834 and 1858 and Marquess of Hartington between 1858 and 1891, was a British Statesman. He has the distinction of having served as leader of three political parties (as Leader of the Liberal Party in the House of Commons (1875–1880), as of the Liberal Unionist Party (1886–1903) and of the Unionists in the House of Lords (1902–1903).

He also declined to become Prime Minister on three occasions, not because he was not a serious politician but because the circumstances were never right.

Includes Original text: “The noble family of Cavendish ...(who benefited from) the dissolution of the monasteries by Sir William Cavendish, who was the Gentleman-Usher to Cardinal Wolsey...He is a typical Whig as an honest gentleman can be…He is master of Aposiopesis who once yawned in the middle of his peroration and ended his speech with the word 'and'"
