John Horne Tooke
Birth: Jun. 25, 1736
Death: Mar. 18, 1812

British Statesman. Originally an Anglican cleric, he became friends with John Wilkes and later formed the Constitutional Party, promoting Wilkesian policies of reform in Parliament and support for the American colonies. Unpopular with the Governement, he was briefly imprisoned in 1778 and acquitted of treason in 1794. Parliament passed an Act forbidding clergy to become Members of Parliment, specifically to keep Tooke from being again elected. Retiring to Wimbledon, he instigated a custom of holding Sunday parties, where men-of-letters would gather around his table. (bio by: Mark McManus)
