Tankerville Chamberlayne (1843-1924) was the youngest son of Thomas Chamberlayne of Cranbury Park and Weston Grove. He inherited the family estates in 1876 on the death of his father, his elder brother Denzil having died without heir in 1873. Born 1843, Tankerville was educated at Eton and Magdalen College, Oxford. He was Conservative Member of Parliament for Southampton, 1892-96 and 1900-06.

As lord of the manors of Netley and Hound, he owned the ruins at Netley Abbey, and did much to preserve them. He also presented Netley Recreation Ground to the public.

Like his father, he was a keen yachtsman and was vice-commodore of the Royal Southampton Yacht Club. He continued to sail his father's yacht Arrow and had his own steam yacht Amazon built in Southampton. He died in 1924 at Cranbury Park.
