Charles Wyndham, 2nd Earl of Egremont, PC (1710 – 21 August 1763), a son of Sir William Wyndham (and a direct descendant of Sir John Wyndham) and Catherine née Seymour, succeeded his uncle, Algernon Seymour, 7th Duke of Somerset, as 2nd Earl of Egremont in 1750. Charles, who had succeeded to his father's baronetcy in 1740, inherited Somerset's estates in Cumberland and Sussex (see Petworth House). His younger brother was Percy Wyndham-O'Brien, 1st Earl of Thomond.

Wyndham was a member of Parliament (MP) from 1734 to 1750: for Bridgwater 1734-1741, Appleby 1741-1747, and Taunton 1747-1750.
