Bayly was returned to parliament for Anglesey in 1734, a seat he held until 1741, and again between 1747 and 1761 and 1770 and 1774. In 1761 he was appointed Lord Lieutenant of Anglesey, which he remained until shortly before his death in 1782.

After his first wife's death in February 1766, he married secondly Anne (née Hunter). There were no children from this marriage.
