Gordon Walker regained the seat for Labour at the 1966 general election, with a comfortable majority. Buxton stood again at the 1970 election, but lost again, by over 5,000 votes.


Buxton came to national attention for a spectacular showing at the polls, prompting Sir Alex Douglas-Home to declare “The best epitaph on hundred days of socialist government…my friend the member for Leyton”. The unconcealed joy was not to last; he was a Member of Parliament for a little over a year, after winning an unexpected by-election victory in 1965.


Shortly after the 1964 election, Sorensen was persuaded to accept a life peerage to make way in a safe seat for the Foreign Secretary Patrick Gordon Walker, who had lost his seat in Smethwick. However, the plan failed and on 25 January Buxton won the 1965 Leyton by-election by a narrow margin of only 205 votes, on a reduced turnout. David Dimbleby, later to become the anchor (from 1979) of the BBC Election results programmes, reported the result live from a snowy Leyton Town Hall for the BBC.


He married on 20 June 1959, his distant cousin Phyllida, daughter of Captain Roden Henry Victor Buxton, CBE, RN, and Dorothy St John. They had four children:


Buxton joined the steel construction company H. Young & Co. as an engineer, and eventually became the firm’s chairman. In East Africa he built a bridge across a deep creek near Mombasa, and for a while collected the tolls himself but decided to sell it. He identified with British settlers in Africa, and at the 1958 Conservative Party Conference asked that their position be safeguarded in independence negotiations.

Buxton purchased Kimberley Hall, Wymondham, Norfolk- still owned by the Buxton family- in 1958. It had been due for demolition. Buxton aimed to restore it to some grandeur, but not before evicting from residence a rare colony of English bats.


Buxton was the Conservative candidate in the safe Labour constituency of Leyton at the 1955 general election, losing by 8,244 votes to the long-serving Labour MP Reginald Sorensen. He was unsuccessful again at the 1959 election and at the October 1964 general election, when Sorensen’s majority was 3,919 votes. Buxton had cast around for another seat but was refused the nomination for the constituency where he lived, and failed to secure the Conservative nomination for South-West Norfolk.


Buxton was the son of British Army officer Captain Murray Buxton and Janet, daughter of Sir Edward Carlile, 1st Baronet, a former MP for St Albans. Buxton was educated at Eton and, after fighting in India during World War II (reaching the rank of captain in the REME and receiving the MC), went up to Trinity College, Cambridge in 1945, taking an MA.


Ronald Carlile Buxton (20 August 1923 – 10 January 2017) was a Chartered Structural Engineer, successful businessman, and Conservative Party politician in the United Kingdom.
