The parliamentary constituency of Tynemouth and North Shields was created in 1832 following the Great Reform Act, and its first MP was George Frederick Young. He held the seat until 1838, before losing it to Charles Edward Grey as a result of a petition following the 1837 General Election. Young was a shipbuilder by trade and was later MP for Scarborough (1851–1852). His son, Sir Frederick Young (1817–1913), was a traveller and writer.
