Sir Robert Harry Inglis, 2nd Bt

(1786-1855), Conservative politician; MP for Dundalk, Ripon and Oxford University

Sitter in 18 portraits
After studying at Oxford, Inglis travelled extensively, and cultivated literary, historical, and scientific interests, becoming a fellow of the Royal Society and a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries. He was involved with numerous philanthropic, religious and educational societies, and over his lifetime published many devotional works and parliamentary speeches. He was elected as an MP in 1824 and the defence of Protestantism and the Anglican Church dominated his parliamentary life. He was opposed to measures that he thought weakened the Church and strenuously opposed the Catholic Relief Bill of 1829. He also strongly identified himself with Irish Protestant interests and with the cause of the Church of Ireland.
