Edward Marjoribanks (Conservative politician)

Edward Marjoribanks (14 February 1900 – 2 April 1932) was a barrister and Conservative Party politician in the United Kingdom.

At the 1929 general election, he was elected as Member of Parliament (MP) for Eastbourne in East Sussex, and held the seat at the 1931 general election. However he died in office on 2 April 1932, having committed suicide aged only 32, having been jilted for a second time.
