Hobart-Hampden was born in Leicestershire, the third son of the 6th Earl of Buckinghamshire. In 1835 he entered the Royal Navy and served as a midshipman on the coast of Brazil in the suppression of the slave trade, displaying much gallantry in the operations. In 1855 he took part, as captain of HMS Driver in the Baltic Expedition, and was actively engaged at Bomarsund and Åbo. In 1867 Hobart entered Ottoman service and was immediately nominated to the command of that fleet, with the rank of "Bahriye Livasi" (rear-admiral). In this capacity, he performed splendid service in helping to suppress the insurrection in Crete and was rewarded by the Sultan with the title of Pasha (1869). In 1874 Hobart, whose name had, on representations made by Greece, been removed from the British Navy List, was reinstated; his restoration did not, however, last long, for on the outbreak of the Russo-Turkish war he again entered Ottoman service. On the conclusion of peace Hobart still remained in Ottoman service, and in 1881 was appointed Mushir, or marshal, being the first Christian to hold that high office. He died in Milan on 19 June 1886 and was brought to Istanbul and buried at English Cemetery in Selimiye.
