Description:
Sir Arthur Hallam Elton, 7th Baronet (19 April 1818 – 14 October 1883) was a writer and Liberal party politician in the United Kingdom.

He was appointed High Sheriff of Somerset for 1857 . Elected as Member of Parliament for Bath at the 1857 general election, he stood down from the House of Commons at the 1859 general election due to his opposition to the Crimean War.

Having inherited from his father both the title and the family's manor house, Clevedon Court in Somerset, he spent the rest of his life improving the town of Clevedon, setting up a lending library and allotments, and building and funding the local cottage hospital (which is still in existence). The west wing of the house was largely destroyed by a fire in 1882 and rebuilt. The house is now owned by the National Trust. He also built Hallum Hall on Dial Hill which was an orphanage. It was later renamed St Edith's childrens home and remained in use as a children's home until 1974. The gothic victorian building is listed and remains largely intact on the outside, but is now converted to luxury flats.
