‘Henley boy’ made Lib-Dem life peer
Published 07/02/11



A BARRISTER who describes himself as a “Henley boy” has been made a life peer.

Jonathan Clive Marks QC, who lives near Binfield Heath, was appointed a Liberal Democrat peer in the New Year honours.

He was made Baron Marks of Henley-on-Thames.

“I am absolutely delighted because at heart I am a Henley boy,” he said.

“I was brought up around Maidensgrove and then in Checkendon, where I spent most of my early years.”


Lord Marks, 58, is married to Medina and has seven children, aged from four to 24. The couple live in an 18th century property at Holmwood, where they have carried out extensive renovation work.

They are supporters of Garsington Opera, which is now based at the Wormsley Estate in Turville, home of the Getty family. Lady Marks is a member of the board of directors.

Lord Marks’ practice is 4 Pump Court, in London’s Temple, one of the leading full-service commercial sets of barristers’ chambers.

He has considerable experience of civil actions involving allegations of commercial fraud. He regularly represents major insurers in fire claim cases.

He was introduced to the Lords on January 13, when he took the oath, supported by Lord Goodhart and Baroness Falkner of Margravine and signed an undertaking to abide by the code of conduct.

He will continue to work on constitutional reform within the Lords.
