British Liberal Party politician. Born in Gloucester, he studied law at the Middle Temple, and was called to the bar in 1847, becoming a Queen's Counsel in 1847. From 1862 to 1865, he sat in the House of Commons as the Member for Gloucester. In the latter year, he stood down in favour of another Liberal, William Philip Price. He made two further unsuccessful attempts to enter Parliament: in 1868 at Weymouth, where he was defeated by Charles Hambro; and, in 1874, at Gloucester again, where he was defeated by William Killigrew Wait, both of these opponents being members of the Conservative Party. He never married, and died, suddenly, on a village to Widmore Lodge, in Bickley, Kent. (bio by: Iain MacFarlaine)
