Sitter in 16 portraits
Statesman; MP from 1832; associated himself closely with Peel's policies and temporarily lost seat over repeal of the Corn Laws in 1846. Became colonial secretary and secretary for war in 1852, a position which made him subject to the most hostile criticism during the Crimean War. Resigned as a result in 1855, but returned to government as secretary of state for the colonies, 1859-64.
