Edward Thurlow, Baron Thurlow (1731-1806), Lord Chancellor

Sitter in 36 portraits
Lord Chancellor, constitutionalist and anti-reformer. He opposed reform in Ireland and defended the interests of the slave-trader. His political principles were merely a high view of royal prerogative and an aversion to change. 'No man ever was so wise as Thurlow looks' (Fox)
