This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on librai^y shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as pait of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expii'ed. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the

estate at Lamborhurst, Kent, a district he had 
liked from boyhood, and here many guests and 
all hifl neighbours used to enjoy his kindlv 
hosi)itality and pithy conversation. He cul- 
tivated pineapples, oranges, and orchids. A 
dendrobmm and a calanthe, hybrids which 
he produced, are (tailed after him. He b«4came 
subject to bTOm:hitis, resigned his physiciancy 
in 1874, became more and more of a valetu- 
dinarian, catiffht cold while fishing in Hamp- 
jiiiinsuml died at his town house, i!4 Cavendish 
Stiunn/, of pneumonia of both lungs, on SScpt. 
188o. He was buried in the churchyard of 
Brenchley, Kent. His astutenetsa an a phy- 
sician was extraordinary, and his kindness 
to young«!r physicianf* imbounded. His hair 
Ix'gan lo grow grey when he was sixteen, and 
when he was labouring under his fatal illness, 
in the prime of life, he looked an old num.

lectures, afterwards published withnotes ana 
an appendix in an octavo volume, under the 
title of * Unitarianism and Trinitarianism 
contrasted/ called forth trenchant replies. 
Dr. Jamed Barr of Oldham Street Presby- 
terian Church, Dr. John Stewart of Mount 
Pleasant Secession Church, and Mr. Jones 
of St. Andrew's Church were his most promi- 
nent opponents. In 1818 Harris planned a 
* Unitarian ChrUtian Association* for the 
dissemination of unitarian literature, and he 
travelled through Lancashire and (Cheshire 
to gain for it sympathy and support. 

In the summer of 1821 a division occurred 
in the Bank Street unitarian congregation, 
Bolton, and in 1822 Harris accepted an in- 
vitation to become minister of the seceders. 
They first met at the Cloth Hall, but in 1823 
the Sloor Lane Church was purchased from 
the Scottish presbyterians. Harris was known 
in Manchester as ' the intrepid champion of 
Socinianism.' In 1822 he published < The 
I^ancashire and Cheshire Unitarian Associa- 
tion, and the Christian Reflector vindicated;* 
in 1823 he published an account of the for- 
mation of the Moor Lane congregation, some 
statements in which provoked replies from 
other clergymen; and in 1824 appeared 
< Christianity defended.' In 1824 a speech 
by him in Manchester led to a long corre*

Close. He st udied the clnssica indust riously,

four or five. lie became specially interested 
in Aristotle. He was an active nisgistrale 
for the county, living at Halidburv and hia 
house at Durnford in the neighbourhood. 
Tliough a student and an author, he was 
ftociftbh^, and esjiecially encouragi'd coneerta 
nnd the annual musical festival at Salis- 
bury. He adapted words to selections from 
Italian and German composers made in two 
Tolumes, by Joseph Corte [q.v.]. the Salis- 
bury organist. In 1701 he entered thw House 
of Commons (where, as John Townshend ro 
marked, he would find neither of liis favourite 
subjects, harmony f^r grammar) as member 
for Christchureh, which he continued to 
represent until his death. He was a fol- 
lower of fteoi^o Grcnville, On 1 .Ian. 1703

A conversation with Harris at the bouse 
of !^ir Joshua Reynolds is reported by Bos- 
well in 1778 (BoswKi.T., iii. 250-8, ed."Hill). 
Johnpon seems to have rt»»peeted hiw stiholar- 
ship, but called him lib. p. 245) ' a prig nnd 
n bad prig.' An engraving from a portrait 
by Highmore is prefixed to the first volume 
of bis works (18()1 ), and one from 'a model

Bi'nr (l74<i-lH:i?0), diplomntist, of a Wili- 
sliire familv long settled at Orchcstou St. 
George, eldest sou of James Harris [q. v.1. 
author of * nennes/ by his wife, Elizabeth 
I Clarke, was bom at his father's house in the 
[Close, Salisburi', 21 .\pril 1746. At four 
I yeare of age hi' wont tcj il dame'*, school, and 
■ after three vears to llie Siilisburv gramniur 
school. Tlieiice he went to Winchester 
College, whi're he remained until September 
176:i. After some time .spent in London with 
his father, then a lord of the tren-sury, he went 
in June 17ti.*i to Morton CV)ll«^g(>, Oxford, 
where he idled away two years an a tfentle- 
man-rommoner, Jn the company of L'harlfs 
JaraesFnxand William Eden. Attheendof 
the summer tennl70o he left Oxford and went 
in St-'ptember tn Ijeyden, where he spent a 
vear in serious study, an<l in niajttering the 
Dutch lanpuHge. Here he bej^iin the 'Diary,' 
whicli he kept very fully for the greiilyriiart 
A" his life. In 1766 he returned to E)ii;rhind 
TOr a few months, and in 1767 travelled in 
Holland, Prus£>iH, Pohmd, and France. Mti 
waa then, through the influence of Lord Shel- 
bumc, appointed .'»i'*retBrv' of emlwiMy at 
Madrid, with o salary nf 800/., and in the 
absence of the ftmlwiswidor, Sir James Grey, 
was leH in August 17K9 chnrgS d'ttflainw. 
In August 1770 he heard of the enpodition 
fitting out a) Bueuus Ayres Rgainst the 
Falkland Islands, and ventured, on his own 
TWponsibiUty. to take no high a tone with 
the Spanish minister, the Marquis Grimaldi, 
(hat the attempt was abandoned. la De- 



cember, however, war seemed so nearly in- 
evitable that he had actually been recalled, 
and had lefl Madrid, when at twenty leagues* 
diditanco he met a courier with the news that 
the Spanish government had yielded, and 
that he might n>tum. His conduct in this 
affair gnine<l him great credit. He was no- 
minated minister pleni]K>tentiar>- on 2'J Feb. 
1771, and, returning to Englaml in the sum- ■ 
mer, was appointed to Berlin, where he ar-j 
rived in February 177:2. In 177t} he gave up ' 
his mission, and, leaving Berlin ll^Sept^ re- 
turned to England. In 1777 he was ap- 
pointed ambaasador to the court of Cathe- 
rine II at St, Petersburg, where he was en- 
gaged in a const-ant struggle against the hos- 
tility of Prussia ami the duplicity of the 
empn-nn. In December 1778 he was made & 
knight of the Bath, and received his kni^it- 
hiKid from the emprf.ss on liO March li79. 
The climate broke down Iua health in 1783. 
Since 1770 he hud been M.P. for Ohnst' 
church. He wo-s a strong whig and a great 
admin-r of Fox, and was appointed by the 
Hockinfj(hnm ministry (in April i7&3) to the 
ministry at the Hague, a po.sition of mferior 
diplomatic rank, but invulving great respon- 
MbiliTy. Harris accepted, and left Russia 
in August. The diHrnisRal of the ministry ' 
Rus[>ended his appointment, and, in spite of] 
his support of Fo.x in the House of Conunona, j 
after his fall from December 1783 to Fe- 
I bruary 1784, Pitt renewed the offer, in recog^ I 
I nition of his prent diplomatic abilities, and I 
! in Dt-cember 17KI he proceeded to Holland, 
I with the rank of minister, but with the salary 
I and apiiointmentsof anamluiHsudor. At tlie 
I time of leaving Uujtsia he had ex]M'nded 
:iO,000/. out of liij> private fortune. At the 
I Hague he found the Bourbont} encouraging 
the Dutch democratic party, and holding out 
hopes of the creation of a Dutch republ ic. He 
used his influence on the side of the stadt- 
holder so 8ucc«Mfully that ' he may be said 
I to have created, fostered, and matured a 
rounter-revolution, which restored to the 
' studtholder his power.* * Ce rtts^ et auda- 
I cieux Harris,' as Mirafaeau calls him (C\mr ; 
! tff lirrfin, ii. IS), often resorted to extreme 
expedients to gnin information. On one oo- J 
casi<^n he bribed a royal valet to exclude a | 
ri\'al for twenty-four hours &om tbe king's I 
closet, and on another he arranged a fiertca ^ 
of disguises for a messenger whom ho sent 
from the Hague (September ]7h5» to deliver 
a mL-iswige to Comwallis in Berlin (Ojm- 
Vftlli* V'trrrjipondenrp, \. 103). tVom March 
to July 17% he wa-s in England on leave, and 
carried an overture from Pitt to the l*rinco 
of Wales in regard to the settlement of the 
prince's debts. He formed the design i 



mm aUi*nce uf England wtth HolUnd anil 
PraMia, and, having obtained t^omv 9U|i|>ort

secTVt ftervict* munev with which to promote 
it in Holland. LveutuallT hv aucci<eded, 
and harinjif been appointed ambaNuidor on

15 April. Oo 19 Sept. be waa created tiaron 
UafaneftbuTT, and alio recei\-»d lht> Pruaaian 
order of the BUrk Eagle. 

AAer a short visit to SwitxerUnd he re- 
turned to Eitfj^Und in the autumn of 17H8, 
and constantly voted agunsc Pitt in tbu 
diTiaiotts upon the reffencjrestTictioni. Lord 
Sidney {ih. i. 4U9) ^fegefl that he had pre- 
ynouuy mode a private offer of hia support 
to Pict, but the char|2;e aeenui groundtefw. 
Till 17i»f except for a »>hort viait to Italy in 
1791!, he remained in England in cliiae con- 
nection with Fox and hij« [lolilical friend.<i, 
and alM) in the intimacy of thi> IVincc of

though he procured another ln>aty in 17l>4 
for Prussian aid in men to the allies in n^t urn 
for KngliHb payments uf money, hu failed to

did not fttfirst take an active part in {xdit ics, 
though he pcweswd consideralde knowletlge 
of foreign affairs, gaineil partly through hi.-*

through numeroiia visits to the continent, 
among which maybe mentioned atrip in 1845 
to the caatlo of flnm, wiiere Louis Napoleon 
was imprisoned (.Wwnoi'r*, i. 167-CO). I 

On the disruption of the conservatives in 
1846 Malmeshury played en important part 1 
in rallying the protect ionists, unci bwaime 
their whip in the House of I.onl*, where Lord 1 
Stanley (afterwards earl of linrbyi, whoae , 
friend*<hip he had formed in l834,wfls Bi>eedily 
e^tahliflht^ m leader of the party. In 1848 be 
published a letter on 'The Hevision of the 
Game Laws,' addressed to the home secretary, 
Sir (icorgB Ore^. In 1851, when Stanley 
attempted in vain tn form a g-ovemmeni, he 
offereaMalmewbury the colonial office. In the ' 
foUowingyear Malmeshury and Disraeli failed 
in their efforts to induce Lord Derby to mei.t 
the government measure by a counter Reffirm 
BilL The whign, however, were defeatwl on , 
the Militia Bill, the conseri-ativea came iuto j 
office, and Mulme.shiiry was appointed secre- 
t teiT of Btate for foreign nffairs 22 Feb. I8o2. 

He had gained some accidental education 
for his work through preparing for publica- | 
tion 'The Diplomatic Joumiu and Corre- | 
spondence of the fir^t Ijord Jlalmeshury,' 
which app<>ared in 1844. He also ackuow* 
lodged much good advice from thequeenond 
the prince consort, and from liis prefW-eanors, 
the IJiike of Wellington, Ix)rd l*almer»ton, 
and Ijonl Granville. Though comments were 
passed on the badueas of his grammar (Brir 



wim, Patmersttmy iL 2^ti) it was not long 
before OrevUle, the dlaristt lt>arnt that he 
was doing very well, and displaying gread 
firmness {JoumaUtf 2nd part, iii. 472-3)^ 
The Austrian aiubaasador, Count Buol, at- 
tempted in vain to play on hia inexperience 
{.Vrmoirg, i. 313, 320). Amongthe congrapj 
lultttions ho received was one from his fntrnd* 
the prince president of the French republic, 
and Alalmesbury, who stood almost alone ji|| 
believing bi the pacific intentions of Xapo 
leon, was the first to recognise officially thfl 
creation of the second empire after raising 
some ditliculties about the numeral adopted 
in the emperor's title. Another impnrtanlj 
event wos the signature of the treaty of Jjon 
don, guaranteeing the llauieh poeses^iona t 
Prince ChriatiBU of Glucksburg, but in Mgn^^ 
ing Malmeshury was only endorsing I'almeV 
stain's diplomacy, as the arrangement wa 
boHHl on the protocol of 18W) (Count A'na 
THi'M, St. Pvirrfbury nnd iMritlon, ii. 223 
English trans.) But, able though his mans 
raent of nffairs was, it was violeully attacke 
The Peelites were annoyed at his prompt 
cognition of the eroi»ire,and l^trd John Ii 
pell made jmrly capital out of the case of ft 
Mr. Mather, wlm stood in the wav of some 
Austrian soldiers in Florence, and was cut 
over the head by their officer. Both Lord. 
Derby and Dii^niidi amplr defended him, and 
the former paid a hamUome compliment to bifl 
diligence, ability, and good Juugment wh^ 
the ministry resigned (20 Dec. 1662). Is 
March 1863 Mabneabury was once more iil^ 
Paris, and had some interesting audienc 
with the emperor iMemoirs, i. 387-90) 
During the sesjuion ho mode a curioualy vio 
lent speech on the Succe»iion Duties BUIt' 
but appeared to greater advantage in Muoli 
1854, when he ably defended one of hia forme^^ 
f^ubonlinatcs, accused by Lord Aberdeen ol^| 
olficinl indiscretions. ^H 

MTien Lord Derby, on the resignation of 
Lord Aberdeen, attempted to form a govern- 
ment (Febniary 1855), be offered Malmecburafl 
the foreign office a second time, but Derbysfl 
negotiations broke down, nnd Disraeli rathflr 
iihsurdly attempted to fix the responsibility 
on Malmeshury, whom he accused of for- 
saking Derby ut the critical moment. In tlie 
same year ho declined to entertain siiggea-^ 
tions for making Disraeli or Lord Stuule; 
leader of the party. On 5 May he openec 
the debate on the treaty of Paris in the House 
of Lords, and during the next two years spoko 
fre<]ueutly on foreign and Indian topics. In

siitn propTisnl in order to gain time for hi» 
militnrv preparation*, and with c'tnsiderablo 
skill foiled Slalmesburv's attempts to bring" 
about a disarmament. The foreign eecretury^ 
suggestion that Sardinia should ilisarm in re- 
turn for a guarantee by England and France 
against her invasion by Aufctria was rejected 
by the em|)cror without ceremony, and whea 
the British government proposed a simulta-

proposal for bis own part, but declined to 
make any representations to Sardinia, On

that the defeat would have iK-en avoided if 
Disraeli hnd laid the Italian blue-book on 
the table. His statements on the point are, 
however, to he received with caution. Cob- 
den cannot, as he says, have been one of the 
dozen or more members who subsequently 
expressed their regret at having voted aKainsC 
him, asCobden had not returned from Ame- 
rica (jMohley, CoJ)dfn,\\. 226). And though 
Malmesbury a.«<«erts in bis 'Memoirs' that 
the reason of Disraeli's conduct was that he 
hod not read the book (p. 192), the real reason 
seetns to have been that it was not printed, 
and that, as ibev wer*» certain to be defeated 
sooner or later, ^^almesbury*s colleagiies did 
m>t care to wait for it (Kebbel, Tirrhy^ in 
the 'Statesman Series.' p. 210). "When the 
blue-book did appear CountVitrihum thought 
that Malmesbury was not quite equal to bis

On bis rotirement from office Malmesbury | 
wnB crealeJ G.f'.B. 

In May 1(^00 Malmcsbury made an offer to 
lx>ni Palmerstoii in tbe names of Lord Derby 
and Disraeli of support agtiinst liis own col- 
leBgiie«. Lord Jubn UuK?sen and Mr. Glad- 
stone, if tliev rt'rtijfm'd on tbe jMwtjiorieraent 
of tbe Ilefnrm Dill, imd in iKil. during a 
Tisit to Paris, attempled to remove tbt; em- 
peror's prejudices ai^aiust iLe conaen'stive 
party. la I80r3 he made a creditable effort 
to induce the French sfovemment to hiii^ 
render the statues of Ilenry II, Klcbard I, 
and tbuir queentt, which are in the vaults of 
the abbey of Fontevruult, but without 9uc- 
p£eas, tbouffh the attempt wng rt-newed iu 
^ 1800. In the absence of Ixird Durby, Malmes- 
biiry moved, on 8 .Inly 18(54, tfie vole of 
censure on I>ird Palmerston's government 
for ilH management of the Panish question, 
and carried it by a majority of nine ; but the 
opiMsitioD was defeated by eighteen in the 
lower house, and the liberal* remnini.'d in 
power until 18<m. On the formal ion of Lord 
Derby's third miniatrv, iu June of that year, 
3ialme»bury declined the furtlgn olHce in 
[ CoaseQUeuce of iU-henlth, and aeceptwl the 
post of lord privy seal. Diirinp the Keform 
Jiill agitation he made a sjHt'^'h at t'bri&t- 
churcH in denial of Mr. nrighl'a stuteinent 
that the Houne of I^rds was hostile to re- 
form, and ill tbe following session attempt eil 
todissunJel^ril l>erl>y from introducing the 
* Six Minutes' ISill. lie conducted the Ke- 
fonn bill through the House of Lords, 
where an nmenchnenl was carried against 
bim by I-ord Cairn** raising the lodger frnn- 
chiae from 10/. to 15/. In I-'chruor)- ]8(ifci, on 
the resignarinn of I>^rd IX^rbv, he Ijecnme 
lender of tbe House of I-onls, and ^iroved 
aurcessful, in npite of his somewhat slipshod 
oratory ; but in December he retired in favour 
cf Lord Cainis. On '27 April and 8 July 
IbGi) he made important speeches on the Lil'e 
Peerages lUll, and succeeiled in getting it 
rejected by 106 votes to 77. He waa again 
lord privy seal in 1H74, under Disraeli, but 
xesigiied m lrt7tt owing to increasing dtuf- 
cew*. One of his last appearances was in 
18t*l , when he supported the proposrtl to plaw 
A statue of Lord Beacousfiela in \Vci<t minster 
Abbey.

for works on arcliitecture or topography. 
The earliest engraving bearing his name is 
one of* The Encampment of the Royal Army 
on Hounslow Heath in 1686.' In 1700 he 
engriived a map of the world after a drawing

at the Theatre Uoyal in 1690 by a com-

This comedy, taken without acknowledgment 
from Wobator'a ' Cure for a Cuckold,' failed 
on the first representation. To these workfl

He IS 6aid to have been originally a working 
blacksmith at his native place, but to have 
removed at an early age lo London, where he 
B'lon made his mark a» a writer on scientitio 
subjects. He wiw the autliur of several papers

part of an exhnustive treatise. Hia tyisay on

MacCuUoi'h calls it * one of the best works 
ever published on the subject.' In 'Murray's 
Mag-txine' for May lHtf7 it is describtid as'u 
careful and singularly advanced essay, which 
pr<»vcit him to have been a rigid niouometaUtst, 
as it contains the expression of an opiuton 
that only one metal can be money, a standard 
measure of property and commerce in any 
country.' This essay is also spt^cially re- 
ferred lo by Lnrd Liverpool in his celebrated 
letter to George III, dated 7 May lt?05, upoa 
the advantap,^s of gold as the single measure 
of value. Harris probably held some sub- 
ordinate post in the mint before his appoint- 
ment 08 assay master in 174>i. He died in 
tho Tower of London on 26 Sept. 1764, and 
was buried there. On his monument in Tal- 
garth Church it is said that 'he invented 
many mathematical instruments,' and that 
his political talents were well known to the 
ministers of the day, to whom he freely oom- 
municatwimany 'wise and learned ideas.* Ho 
married one of the daughters and heiresses 
of Thomaa Jones of Tredut^tan. Harris was

HARRIS, MaSES (/. l-fi<i-178n). ento-

born in 1731. From his uncle, Moses Harris, 
a member of an old-twlabllshed Aurelian so- 
ciety, he derived bis first instruction in the 
science to which from childhood he was 
strongly attached. He afterwards became 
secretary to a new Aurelian society. His

the editorship of J. t_>. W^eslwood. The in- 
sects were all drawn by Harris from the life, 
the engraviiag was hu first attempt, and the 
colouring is very briUinut. The descriptions 
are both accurate and perspicuous. In the

himself arrayed in full insei't-huntiug cos-

him * a fanatical liero,' acquits him of the

And given mto the custody of the Dublin 
Society. Harris died at Dublin on t?U July 
1761. He was appointed vicur-gcnerul of the 
proteatant hisbop ofMeath in 17C^S. 

Before Harris lwg«n hiw labours on Ware's 
Latin works, nonie of them hud appeared Jn 
an innccnrate English transliition in London 
in 170'"». Harris issued, in 1739, a folio volume 
illustrated with engravings and entitled 'The 
whole works of Sir James Ware coneerning 
Ireland, revised and impmved. \"oliiuu' I., 
containing the history ot' the bishopi^ uf thiit 
kingdom, and such matters, ecclesiastical and 
civil, in whicb they were concerned, from the 
first pmpagntion of ('hriiitiiinil v theri'in to 
ihc present lime.' I [arris not only tninslaii><I 
IfVare's account of the biiihops, but enlarged 



I 



it and continued tt in the protestant suc- 
ceesi'ju to 1734*. The first jart of tlie secoml 
volume of Harris's etlition of Ware 'a works 
appeared in 17JG. It containe<l a revised 
and enlarged version in English of Warv'a 
treatise,' J >c< Hibemia et autiquitatihus ejua.' 
The second pari of the second volume was 
publishtnl in 17411 with the title,* The write« 
of Ireland. In two books. I. Uf such writers 
who were born in Ireland. It. Of such 
writers who, though foreigners, enjoyed 
prefennents or offices in Ireland, or had their 
education in it.' Harris stated that he had 
made ' many material additions 1 o the original 
w.rrk,' continuing it Mown to the beginning 
of the present century.' Harris's contribu- 
tion is mainly com|jiled from printed booka. 
His treatmcntof writers tn the Irish language 
U throughout defective and inaccurate. LUts 
of religious treatises and sermons fill many 
pages. The latest writer mentioned is Jona- 
than Swift. The unsold copies of Harrii^'s 
edition of Ware's writings were reisttied aO 
Dublin with new title-pages in 1764. 

Harris's otiuT Wfirk». all published in Dub- 
lin, were: 1. ' Historiffgraphorum aliorumqua

tory of the Irish writers,' Dublin, 1736, 8vo.

* An essay nn the defects in the histories of

Daroti Newport, chancellor of Ireland. Iitfl 
this Harris ntenlions the materials existing, ™ 
m far as he knew, for a history of Ireland, 
and states thar he had transcrilied numerous 
document.s on the suhjecl. A second part 
of the' Ilibernica' appeared in 1700. Atiiinl 
pari waa prenored for the preas, but nevec S 
published. Ihe mnnu.script now belongs to ^ 
the writer of the present article. The two 

rubliahed parts were reprinted together in

HARRIS, WILLIAM, D.D. (1675?- 
1740), pn-Bbyterian divine, wns born about 
167'5, probably in Southwiirk, where his 
mother lived aa a widow in 1692. Walter 
Wilson (following Jost&h Thompson) thinks 
he waa educated lu the academyof Timothy 
JoUio r<J-v.] at AttprcUffis near Sheffield 
(opened m 1689). The minutes of theprcftby- 
tehan board show that in 1692-6 he studied 
successively in the academies of John South- 
well at >ewbRrT, Berkfihire, and James 
Waters »t Uxbridgp, Middlesex. He began 
early to preach, and wn« »ume time assistant 
(unordained) ioHnnr^- Keadst (Jrarel Lane, 
Southwark. On Read'sdeath (1698) Harris 
waa called to succeed Timothy Cniso [q. v.] 
at Crutched Friars, in spite of some oppo- 
sition, and received prc«bytonan ordina- 
tion. The account* of his popularity are 
conflicting. There is no doubt that he was 
a leader of liberal dissent ; his delivery waa 
marred by hoarseness. For over thirty jrears 
(from 1708) he was one of the Friday even- 
ing lecturers at tlie Weighhouse, Eastcheap. 
He was oua of the original trustees (1716) 
of Dr. Daniel AYilliamji's fnundotions. At 
the Salter** Hall debate.^ [see Bradbitrt, 
Thoxab] in 1719, be Mded with the non- 
Bubaeriben. In 1723 he was one of the 
original distributors of the English n^lwn 
donum. On 12 .\pril 1727 he micceedad 
William Tong in the merchants' lecture at 
Salters* Hall. He received the dq^no of 
D.D. from Kdinburgh, 8 Nov. 1728, and a 
similar honour from Aberdeen. Nathaniel 
Lardner [q. v.] was his colleague in his pas- 
toral charpp from 1729; an earlier colleague 
was John Billingsley the younger (1667— 
1722) 'a. T." He die<], after a short illneM, 
on 25 May r740,aiid was buried (30 Ma^) in 
Dr. Daniel Williams's vault. Bunhill i-ietds. 
Funeral i^rmons were preached by his inti- 
mat(r friend, XV'njamin Orosrenor [q. v.] and 
by I^anlner. To Dr. Williams's library he left 
neariv two thousand volumes ; his portrait, 
now in the librarr, tiordon Square, LoiidoD, 
was presented in 1768 b^ Laidner'a executor;

was published wltiiout his name in 1751. In 
this and his fub!»»^quent bio|rniphtes he pro-

tending Plymouth grammar school he v/t» 
»ent to tho university of Fdinbtirgh to study 
medicine. He commenced as a militia sui^ 
geon, and was afterwards a general prac- 
titioner in Plymoutli. On his marriage? lA^ 
1824 with Klizabeth Snow,eldest daiigliteroE

fellow. IlLBpaperscontrihuted to the dociety-H 
in 1834, 1838, and 1839, on the elementary 
laws of electricity, contain his best work. 
To the R<»yal Society of Edinburgh, of which 
he alM) became a follow, he communicated in

the naval authorities atiU continued to offer 
various object ions to bis invention, the govern- 
ment in 1841 conferred on him an annuity of 
300^.,' in consideration of services in theculti- 
vation of science.' Harris met objections to 
his system by pubUshtng a work on ' Thimder- 
storms' (1843), which failed, however, to 
attract attention. He also contributed a 
Hcries of papers on the defence of ships and 
buildings from lightning to tJie * Nautic^ 1

IRISON, JOHN (I093-177C), me-

by hia wife Elizabeth Barber of \V''ratfhy, Hia 
fiatber wtis carpenter and joiner to Sir Row- 
land Winn of Nostell Iriory, and also re- 
paired clocks. "When seven years oUl John 
nw taken by hin father to Biirrow-upon- 
|uml)**r, Lincolnshire, where Winn had an- 
^eetate. In ehildh<x>d he wan ottpecially 
by machinery on wheels. He re- 
Luecanly education, and waa never able 
hia ide>afl clearly in miting. A 
lent him a manuscript copy of 
Saunderwin's Wturea on natural 
phy, which he copied with nil thedia- 
In course of time he joined hU father 
ibe workshop, and occasionally made a 
Qnney by land-measurintjandsnrx'evinj.'. i 
"1 In irnprrivethecon(*truction of clocks > 
bet*. In 17iri be consinicted an ! 
' clock with wheeU maile entirely ' 
which is ttill in fioiiig order nt i 
MoaeuiD of Paleats, South Kensington. 



To prevent the effect-s of heAt and cold 
upon ttmekeeners, be devised in 17^ Ms 
* gridiron pendulum/ which consistfi in hav- 
ing the bob Buspcuded by a sertea of parallel 
rods, allcniatoly of stet;! and bniM, so ar- 
ranged that the downward expansion of the 
steel rods frorachangeoftemptjraturv is exactly 
ri'impen.4ated for by the upward e.tjNinsion of 
the bra^ rods. Tbis principle of compensa- 
tion is now [jenerally adopteii. Two of Harri- 
son's long eight-day clocks, one of them with 
tbegridiron pendulum attached, are preserved 
in the mu.*''Um of the Company of Clock- 
makers in the (Tuildball, London. Another 
of his ingenious improvements in clockinaking 
was his recoil escapement, which obviated the 
necessity of keeping the pullets wtdl oiled. 
Thitt escapement has l>een found Komewbat 
too delicate to be generally adopte<I. Harri- 
son waa also the first to employ the ' going 
ratchet,' or scoondair spring, an arrangement 
for keeping the timepiece going at ita usual 
rate while oeing wound tip. 

In 1713 an act was pa.ss4Hl (12 Anne, cap. 
16) offering rewards of 10,000/., 16,000/., and 
'J*),(MM.U. to any one wbo could discover a 
methixl of determining the longitude at sea 
within sixty, forty, and thirty geographical 
mile* respectively. Harrison came to Lon- 
don in l<2ts with drawings of an instrument 
for the purjwee. George Graham [q. v.], who 
examined bis invention, adWscd him to con- 
struct the instrument before applying to the 
board of longil ude. Ho finished one in L735, 
and having obtained certificates of its excel- 
lence from Hatlev, Graham, and others, he 
was eent in 1736 in a king's ebip to Lisbon 
and back to test it. In this voyage he cor- 
rected an error in the nhip's reckoning of one 
degree and a half. Si.\ days iiftiT hi* return, 
on 30 Juno 1737, the board ordered TiOO/. to 
he paid to him in two moieties, though 
Granan, who was consulted, urged that ho 
should have at least 1,000/. Harrison com- 

Iileted a second chronometer in 173il. It was 
c«s cumbrous than the first. For u third in- 
strument ofstill smaller make be was awarded 
the Copley medal of the I^^yal Society in 
174fl. A fourth timepiece in the form of a 
pocket watch, about five inches in diameter, 
was finished in 1759. Trial of its accuracy 
was made by his son William during a voyage 
from rort^mouth to Jamaica and back, loat- 
ingfrom IS Nov. 1761 to 1*6 March 1762, 
when it was found to have erred not more 
than one minute and fiHy-four and a half 
s'-'cond*. Tbis amnnnted to only eight<'»en 
geopniphicnl miles. The board of Inmgitnde, 
however, n-fuflcd tocerlify thai Harrison had 
won the priie. Harrison thereupon peti- 
tioned parliament, with the result tnat on net

during (he l^int of 1791; he «ang in the 
DruT^ Lano oratorios in 171M. and at the 
Lenteaconcert»attheKing*flTheatreinl7y5. 





Harrison was principal tenor at the Ancient 
Concerts fmrn l~!^>'i until 1791, when he 
seceded.and, with Charles Knyvett the elder, 
established the ^'ocal Concerts. The first was 
givenonllFeb.l79d at Willis's Rooms, Hero 
excellent perfumiances of Kngliab chamber 
music were provided, but ceased to attract 
after a few seo^ions, Harrison and the chief 
promoters of the enterpriso returning to the 
Ancient Concerts. In 1801 tho Vocal Con- 
certs were rev ived on a much larger scale than 
heretofore, wiih anorchestra; they were very 
successful until newer musical attractions 
drew the public away. In 1821 Ilarrisonrc- 
peated Monie of his most popular performancca 
(see (irove) at his benetit concert on 8 Mny

was buried in Old St. Pancras gravevard. 
A n inscription on the stone gives Imes by the 
Kev. T. Beaumont (IU>ffe, Monumental In- 
scriptions, So. QiS). 

'Nature had bestowed upon Harrison but 
slender mat«haLs' (Uihuauli), but he had 
leikmt to exetcise complete control over bis 
delicate organ, which was two octaves in 
compass, although limited in power. ' Had 
his physical powers been equal to his taste/ 
wrote acoutemporary, ' Harrison would have 
been in all points uuriralled.* Tho ana can- 
tabiie showed his capacity to most advan- 
tage. His favourite songs were Pepuscb'a 
• Alexis,' Handers ' Lord, remember t>o>'id,' 
and ' Pleasure, my former ways reaigning;' 
Boyce's * Softly rise;' Zingarelli'a 'Umbra

singer, free from English brogue and vul- 
garity' ( BuKNKV ^, Before she married Har-

with his. She was a favourite at the Ancient 
Concerts and at the Three Choirs fesTivals, 
and earned some measure of praise for her 
performance at the Handel Commemoration 
of 1784. Her style of singbg, particularly 
in its negative virtues, seems to have re-

while a youth to New Ensliind, nnd there 
tmincd up to the ministry, lie beciuae chap- 
lain to the goremor of Virgiuia, an enemy 
of the |iuritan8. Tlie governor, with thecnn- 
nivunce of llHrrison, expelled from Vircinia 
certain miniflters who held extreme views, 
and their expuUion was followed bv a cliK- 
•Jitrous rising among the Indians. This was 
held by many, Harri*on included, to be a judg- 
ment of Providence against the persecutors 
of the expelled preachers. Harrison's change 
of views oL-eusioned liis diamisaal, upon which 
eaine to Ixindnn, and, obtaining f<ome 
De u a preacher, wa^ chosen about UI50 
mieceed Dr. Goodwin in his 'gatbere*!

omwell, when he went to Ireland as lord- 
eat^nant. He lived in Cromwell's family, 
and preached at Chriet Church, Dublin. At 
the Restoration he left Irelnnd. nnd settled 
t Chester, preaching lu large congregations 
1 the cathedral, till he was silenced by the 
ketof UniformitT. From a list of graduates 
; Cambridge from 10 Oct. 1660 to 10 Oct. 
51, it appears! that Harrison took his D.D. 
•re; but according to Ciilamy {Account, 
607) he received it at Dublin. After 
the passing of the .\ct of L'nifonnity he re- 
amed to Dublin, and founded a flourishing 
dissenting churcli of congregational views, 
"^kis elo4{uenee and fluency both in prayer and 
f-oching brought him great notoriety, and 
Lhuny stales that * be was a complete gen-

HARRISON, THOMAS (1606-1660), 
regicide, was, according to the most prohablo 
accounts, the son of a butcher or grazier at 
Newcaalle -under- Lyme, Staffordshire (A

was baptised I'JJuly 16C»6 (Life of Harrison, 
appended to the Trial of CAarleti I nnd nwrur

is not to be found in the register of New-

son given in Air. F. A. Indenft'ick's * Side- 
lights on the Stunrts,' be is described as of a 
good Durham family; but all contemporary 
evidence connects him with Statlbrdsbire, 
and agrees lluit his family was nf low rank. 
Harrison seems to have Ufn well educated^ 
and WHS then placed by his father 'with on

Harrison was very xealoas in bringing Iks -

Cromwi-ll and Iivlon, he escorted the 
from Ilun-l Caatle to London. CharIee|Wl 
had been told that Harrison bad ofiered to ■s*' 
sasjiinato him, wim attracted by his soldierly 
bearing, and told Herburt *that having soma 
judgment in faces, if ho had otiser^-fd him «Q ^ 
well before, he should not have that ill opinion ^ 
ofhim'(IlEKBEBT, ,Vw«oi'r*,ed. ITIW.p. 140). 
1 larrisou iLisured the king that the report wsi 
not 1 nte ; what he had really said was * that 
the law was equally oblifiing to great and

action, and wa.o cnnvinct^il that it met wi' 
divine approbation (TriaU of tA^ 
p. 50). 

llarri-ton did not accompany Cromwell ti 
Ireland, though in the nrayer-meet ing wluch 
took place previous to Cromwell's departore, 
he 'expounded some places of scripture ex-

MOfU* Journals, '2\ June lOuO). On liH Oct. 
16G0 he reviewed the nt*wlr rniMKl milttja 
forces in Hyde l*ark {Merruritts Pttiift'cu^). 
In the following Mnrcb rumours of plot» in 
the north led the council of state to send him 
to the border. He had under him wmeiti/jOO

LTLE, CrvrntceU, Appendii, 20'; Cal. State

victory so en^Tfjeiicallv and skilfully that 
very few escaped (IlarriiiouV Irtter!' rehitinp

Old I'nrliamentfirif Hilton/, \o\b. x'lx., xi. ; 
Cahy, Memorials o/ the CirU War, ii. 295, 
300,373). Like Cp>m\vcll, Harrison utilised 
lh.« Yictori- to recommend the mrliament to 
improve 'this mercy ineatttblishinpthe ways 
of hghteousnesa and justice, yet more re- 
lieving the oppressed, and opening a wider 
d(»or to thepublialiing the everlasting gospel' 
lCART,iL37r»). Ilixown Z4*al for justice had 
been shown in IG^jO by procuring the ejtjiul- 
»n of Edwonl Howard, lord Howard of Ea- 
ick [q. T.jfrom parliament for taking bribea 
TLrtoLow, ed. 1751. p. 129). He took pnn 
in Pecember IftTil in the conference concern- 
ing the settlement of the kingdom armnged 
by (.>omwell, and waa one of the prvmiot*ra 
oftheamiy petition of 12 Aug. I(Jo2(\Vhite- 
Lorci:, iii. -'(72). Contemporary evidence re- 
prNtenta Harrison as pressing urgently for 
the dlMuslution of the T.x>ng parliament. 
Cromwell complained that lie was too eager. 
' Harrison,' be said, * is an honest man, and 
asms at ^ood things, yet from the impatience 
■^biit .spirit will not wait the Lord's leisure, 
hurries me on to that which ho and nil 
iFst men will have cause to n>pent ' (Li'D- 
XAW, MtMoira, ed. 1751, p. 171 }. Harrison 
liimHlfsoine yean later explained to Ludlow 
that be had aa5ifite<l in the expulsion of the 
parliament, ' hGciLu.>(e he wan fully p^-rituadi-rl 
that they bad not a heart to do any more

with Cromwell's determination to resort to 
force, but he did not hei«itute at Cromwell's 
bidding to lay hands on the apenker, though 
be later denied using force to fetch him from 
the chair (Several J'rweedfnffa in Parlia' 
me'?it, 14-21, April 1 6-53 ; ( Ulectiim of Livea, 
Speeche*, &c. p. 9; Lt'Di-ow, p. 173 J. 

Authority was now vested for a time In 
the hands of a small council of thirteen pei^ 
ttona nominated hr the officers, and Hamson 
I was preeident of jt during the third week of 
its existence. Some wished the supreme 
power to continue In the hands of a council, 
but, Harrison urged that it should l>e in- 
trusted to nn assembly, to consist, like the 
Jewish 'sanhedrim,' nf some *tf?ventv selected 
nersons (Ludlow, p. 17«). This policy was in 
lact adopted in the summoning of the Bare- 
bones parliament, of which Harrison was 
n co-opted member. Over the majority of 
that body he esercif^ed great influence, and 
with it!< extinction his own political career 
ende«1. Roger Williams de^ribe» him ns 
head of the party of tifty-six who were for 
the abolition of priests and tithes, and * the 
second in the nation of late,' adding, * he is 
a very gallant, most deserving, heavenly man, 
but most high-Hown for (be kingdom of the 
Saints, and the Fifth Monarchy now riiiten, 
and their sun never to set ogain,' &c 
(KNowLEs.il/flo/ ft'iUianui, 1834, p. 261). 

Harriixin had bcMt one of the council of state 
elected on 3 Nov. 1 IWV), but was left out of that 
appointed under the instrumimt of govern- 
ment in Deoember IG.'iS. Refusing to own the 
new government be w as na t urally deprived of 
his commission, 22 Dec. 1663 (Thubi.oe, L 
(J41). 1 le says himself : 'When I found those 
that were aa the npplo of mine eye to turn 
atiide,Idid loathe them and HuS'ered imprison- 
ment manv years. Kuther than to ttuntus many 
did that did put their haudii to this plough, 
I chofle rather to be separated from wife and 
family than to have compliance with them, 
though it was said, *'^it at mr right hand" 
and such kind of expressions ( TriaU of the 
lietjicidea, p. 50). On 3 Feb. ie&4 be was 
ordered to retire to his father's bouse in 
StBrt'ordsbire, and not to leave till further 
order (tV*/. Suitr Papent, Doni. 1653-4, p. 
387). In September 1054 the anabaptists 
projected presenting a petition to porliament, 
and Harrison, who wus susjx^ted of directing 
thi'ir Kiovementf, wos for a few days in cus- 
tody. Cromwell then sent for him, enter- 
tained bim richly, expostulated with him, 
and finally dismissed him with a simple ad- 
monition 'not to persevere in those evU ways 
whose end U destruction ' (TuritLoE, ii. OOtl;

Cid fortune to attract the attention of Sir 
wrence Dundas, by whose liberality he was 
at in 1769, with Georpe Ciiit the eUnr 
Iq. v.], the landscai«-pamter, to study in 
Italy, and waa for several years a student in 
' Rome. In 1770- he made a deaipn for Popo 
Clement XIV for the decoration of the cor- 
tile of the Kelvt.'dere. Ho al(*o prepared other 
dengns for Ihtt pnilM^lliMhment 01 the piazza 
near the Porta del Popolo, for which the pope 
bprvscnted hlui with a gold and a silver medal, 
Iwad ordered his name to be added to the 
IvuBnbers of the academy of St. Luke, with a 
; in the council of that body. He returned 
to London in 177<5. and in 1777 exhibited hia 
modal drawinp*. Shortly HflerAvard.-* he was 
|;CaramiaBioned to build a brid>,'e over the Ltinc 
kit lABCUter : tbo fir^t stone was laid by 
I m in 1783, and the work completed 
lin 17^^. It has fire elliptical arches of sixty- 
Ibine feet span, and U paid to be the Urfit 
bridge with a level surface erected in Eng- 
[land. He also rebuilt Lancaster Castle in 
Ithi* liolhic style, and designed other impor- 
Itant buildings in that town. Hinplanttin 
lie Grecian Doric style for rebuilding the 
dtle at Chester were selected in competi- 
ItiOR ; tbey include a prison, coiuity assize 
Eeourts, armoury, exchequer, and gateway. 
|Tbe*e buildings wer»» erected between 1703 
Imud IB'JO, and an? wholly of stone, no iron 
loir timber being used iu any part of th» walls, 
|C«ilingN floors, or staircases. Thi^ was the 
Ifirst prison built on the panoptical arrange 
[tnenr in this country. In 1827 he erected 
[the celebrated Uroevenor Bndg« over the 
IHm At ObBBter, Irom designs he had prepared 
-•one yrara before. This consi^t^i ofa i-ingle 
arch of two hundred feet span, a then un- 
equalled dimension, and is of such singu- 
larly beautiful proportions as to convey little 



idea of site to a casual ohfter^er. This anJ 
the cattle which stands near aro Harrison's 
best -known works. He erected Ihu obelisk on 
Moel \'amm4u, Henblgh shire, to commorao- 
mte the jubilee of fieorge III, the column to 
Lord Hill near Shrow.-bury, and that toLonl 
Angleseaut Plas Newydd. In Lirerjiool he 
vraa the architect of the Athenteum, the Ly- 
ceum, the theatre, the St. Nicholas's Tower, 
and other well-knonii building^: in Manches- 
ter of the Portico, the Exchange Uuildinga 
( lSOO),undthoTheatreRoyal(burDtiu 1S4!1). 
He was also employed in erecting manvpublic 
buildings and mansions for the nobifity and 
Sentry, not only in Lancashire and Cheshire, 
but in various parts of England and .Scotland. 
He built Hroomball, Fi('e.^uire, fur Ixjrd IClgin 
( 179t.}). Harrison suggested to that noble- 
man, on his appointment to the embassy at 
Constoutinople. that he should obtain caste 
and drawings of the works of art at Athens 
and other places in Greece*. This reauUed 
in thai uiagnificonl collection, the Elgin mar- 
bles, which wore purchased by the nritish 
Museum in 1816. Harrison died at Chester, 
lit* March I829,aged H,'i, and wns buried in tho 
churchyard of St. Brido. .\ bu8t of Harrison 
wa.s presented by hi.<> nephew John 10 the Insti- 
tute of British .-Vrchitects in 183H,aud theru 
is an engraved portrait of him by A. R. Burt, 
dated Cheater, I May 1824; in the background 
Chester Castle is shown. He exhibited fivo 
works at the Royal Academy between 1773 
and 1814. 

MoHt of his designs were in the revived 
classic style that suited the tosie of his time, 
and such specimens as the Manchester Ex- 
change, the Lyceum in Liverpool, and Wood 
Bank Hall, StOL'kport, serve to show his suc- 
cessful adaptation of this styleto buildiDesin- 
tended for various purposes. They also liavo 
the merit of thoroughly convenient interior 
arrangement and excellent oonatruction.

Harsnett still continued to ruK- over Pem- 
broke Hell, but hid high church practices, 
frequent absences, and financial mismanage- 
ment Ie<l to many unseemlv disputes with 
the fellows. Andrewes tells I'ndi^r-m-'cretary 
Sir Thomas I-ake, on 'It July 1612, that th» 
Bishop of Cliicliester is d'-sirous of Tvj>igning 
his mastership (Cat. Stnfe Vajifrt, Dam. 
1611-18, p. 1.19). In 16U Ilanq^ett was 
Ingrain elected vice-chancellor of his univer- 
aity. In March 1614-16 Jame-* I, accom- 

fianied by his son Prince Chiirlcf, paid his 
irst visit to Cambridge. John Clmmlwrlain 
tells Sir Dudley Carleton on 16 March lUU 
r-I'»]that Harsnett 'did his part everj- way' 
{Hanlvrirfte State Paper*, pp. 396-7). He 
siriivu to reprf>s.s the indiscriminate confer- 
ment of honoran,' degr«e«, more especially crfl 
those in divinity. In 1616 the fellows of] 
Pembroke exhibited to the king an accusal 
tion in fifty-seven articles against the meater. 
Harsnett WHS charged principally with favour- 
ing poiHTT. ah«;nce from college, and impm- 
per dealing with the accounts. The fellows 
olrin appealed to Andrewps, the I'jirl of Suf- 
fnlk, at that time rhancellnr of the univer- 
sity, Sir l-ieorge Viliicrs, aud others. Though 
Harsnett was compelled to rcsiigii, he con- 
tinue<l in high favour at cdurt. and thest 
dilTenuires did not prevent the ' niiserrimi

complimentary letters on hiselevation lolho

that his complaints hjin heen frivolous, and 
dismiwed in thu several courts of law (id, pp.

In 1028 Pr. George Montaigne, archbishop 
of York, died, and Ilarsnett was elected in kis

on 13 Jan. following. On 10 Nov. WJii he

HART, AAIION (1670-1756), chief 
rabbi, bom in 1670 at Breslau, studied at a 
rabbinical school in Poland, and probably 
came to England in 1692 to act &k mbbi of 
thefintt synagogue of the Hngli.Hli congrega- 
tion nf German and Polish Jt^wH, whitlh was 
opened in that year in Uroad Court. Mitre 
Square, London. lIoremoTed in 1721 to the 
(treat Synagogue in Duke's Place, AIdgat«, 
then juRt built at the expense of bis brother 
Moses (see below), and he remained tliera 
till bis death in 1756. lie married a daugh- 
ter of Kabbi Samuel ben Phoebus of Fiirth. 
His onni name appears in Hebrew ns Itabbi 
Phcebus (orL'ri)ben Unblii llirs Hamburger, 
and he issonielimef* referred to asRnbbi Uri 
Pheibush. Befon; 1707 be agreed to dissolve, 
recording to Jewish eccloeiaslical ordinances, 
the marriage of a member of his congrega- 
tion who was leaving England for the ^S'est 
Indies, and was severely attnclied on the 
ground that he hud acted irregularly, by 
another rabbi in England, Jocbauon Ileth- 
fihaw, or Johsnan ben Isaac, in a work called 
'Mflas6 lUb' (AroBterdam, 1707,4to). Hart 
repti(.>d to iho strictures in a book entitled 
'Lrim vo-Tbumim ' (I/mdon, 1707, 4tn)p 
which is the first Hebrew book printed in 
London. Very late in life he is doubtfully 
said to hare held dispiitationfl with one Ed- 
ward Goldney, who sought to convert the 
.Icwa in England to Christianity. Pandridge 
painted the rnbbi's portrait, which was en- 
gravwl by McArdell. 

Hart, Moses (1670?-1766), youn^r 
brother of the above, came from his native 
place, RrcRlan, in esrl v I ife, and bfcnnie a pros- 
perous mnrchnnt in I.,ondon. (lodotphin, while 
first lord of the treasurj- (1 702-10), employed 
him ill financial dealings. He built at his 
sole expense tbeGreal Svnoi;oguo in Aldgnte, 
which was opened in lY'21, and was rebuilt 
in 1790. It remains tbe chief London syna- 
gogue. His plac4i of bufiineAH was In St. Mary 
Axe, and he had a mansion at Isleworth. 
Me died 19 Nov. 1756, leaving, among other 
bequests. 1.000/. to the I./ondon liospital 
(dent. Mttff. 17S6, p. r>9o). His will waa 
(lieputed by bis grandehildron and other re- 
' latives among tht-mgi^-lve?, and the case was 
carried in 1760 to the House of Lords (cf.

of the appeal In the lords). A portrait of

He is said to have been educated at Tunbridge 
School, and to have been for a. Hlinrt time r uni- 
tarian preacher at Norwich. He wo^ admitted 
a student of the Middle Temple in 1770, nnd 
was called to the bar in 1781. Ho C(iiiiint-<1 
himself excluaively to equity work, and at'ti-r 
,cti.^ing twenty-fiix years behind the bar 
a in 1807 appomtod a king's counsel, snd 
the same year was elected n bencher nf his 
inn. In 1816 he was made 6<ilicitor-general 
Queen Charlotte. Having been appointed 
chancellor of England in tbe place of 
John Leach, ho wtu admitted ti> (he privy 
council and knighted on iHi April 1827. He 
took his seat in tbe vice-chancellor's court in 
thefoUowingmonth. Upon theresignution nf 
Lord Manaerv he wns promoted by Uo<lcricb 
to tbe post of lord chancellor of Ireland. On 




accepting thi^ nffice Hart e\pre.<«ly stipulated 
'that he yvus to have no politics, general, 
local, or religious; and that of Papists and 
Orangemen he was to know nothing.* Ho 
was sworn in at Dublin on 6 Nov. I8i7, and 
took his seat in tbe court of chancery on the 
following day, when he immt-diatelv becamo 
involved in a serious misunder^^ta tiding with 
the Irish master of the rolls iu reference to 
tbe riglit of tbe latter to appoints secretary 
(/ri/AZ-rtu- AcTOrrfw,i.5-6, «7-71, 81-7, 114- 
11a). Hart did his best lo shorten equity 
pleadings, which he considered were * too 

ftrolix in Ireland ' (ib. i. 500). AVhile he was 
ord chancellor a singular case atfectirg the 
rights of the Irish bar arose, a full accotmt 
of which will be found in O'Flanagan's 'Livea 
of tbe l^rd Cliancellors of Ireland' (il. S91- 
yO-H). I'pon the formation of I^rd fJrey's ad- 
ministration towanis tbe close of 1830, Lord 
Plunket was appointed in Hart's place. Hart 
sat OS lord chancellor for the last time on "J'J Dec 

1830, and was addressed in a farewell speech 
by Saurin on behalf of the bar (/rt>A Late He' 
corder^ iii. 67-8). Hart was an amiable man, 
a sound lawyer, and a patient and urbane 
judge. His judgment* were both able and 
impartial, Httti were delivered in a quiet lucid 
manner. It is stated 'as a fact without pre- 
cedent that not a single decision of his was 
ever varied or reversed' (Burke, Hi/itonj of

out to the Cape in 1819, and died there in

added to hU own interleaved copies until, 
while yet a subaUera, he hod accumulated $0 
laree a maaa of infonnatton as to eugge^t the 
publication of an army list of hu own. Aided 
greatly by his wife in his UleroTT labours, 
Hfirt, in Februorv lt*UO, huviiig obtuined the

the first edition of his ' Quarterly Army List.'

igh niithorities. Hurt wiuj allowed access 
to the official records of oIlicerH* Ben'ices, and 
in 1840 published bin first ' Annual Army 
List,' containing ftupplenientary information ; 
of intt^rest, in ndditinn to tbe content* of the ' 
^Quarterly,' lie also projected a military 
bioprnpliical dictionary, specimen pages of, 
which he issued, but never found time to 
carry out ihe work. From the first appear- ' 
•nco of 'Hart's Army List' to the present | 
day the annual and quarterlv volumes have , 
regularly appeared. The onginal form bas 
never been altered, although tbe book bus 
gone through two hundred editions. 

Hurt never allowunl bi^ literary avocations 
to interfere with his profe.H»ionnl work, and 
was an admirable regimental ofiicer. He ren- 
dered valuable services as n poor law inspector 
in Ireland during the famine of 1845-C. In 
]86<i, when in temjiorary command of iho 
depf'ii battalion at Templemore, by his mas- 
terly movements he suppressed a diingenins

attack thr(!e kinds of tresjtflitsars on tbe mfr _

testimonJRB of authors before the ' Dunciad.' 
Whether or not Pope knew Harte bc-fore the 
publication of the poem? (from hi.s .^tub^crib- 
ingfor four copies it ta presumed he did), it is 
certain that they subeeijuently became great 
friends. In 1730 appeared Harte's ' Essay ou 
Satire, particularly the Dunciiid' (in verse), 
Svo. Pope, writ Ing of it to Caryll, l-Vb. 1 731 , 
says that it is 'writ by Mr. Hnrte of Oxford, 
a very vtiluahle young man. but it compli* 
ments me too mneh,' Mr. Khvin observes 
' the umise amounts to adulation.' 

Iul735HartepuhliRlied,wlthout his name, 
au ' Essny on l^ason/ in folio, Pojm writes 
to Caryll, 8 Feb. 17.35: 'There is anotherpiece 
which I mav venture to send you in a post 
or two, an l!.s«ay on Rea.'ion, of a serious kind, 
and the intention of which I think you will 
not disapprove.' KKvinsays: ' It is said Pope 
revisicd It. It is a close but lame imitation 
of the Essay on Sfan.' Harte in conversation 
said he luid often pressed Pope to write some- 
thing on the side of revelation, but he used 
to answer, ' No, no, you have alri<ady doiw it.' 
On 27 Feb. 17^7 he preached a sermon before 
the university of Oxford un 'The L'nion and 
Hiinnuny of Ui"a?ion, Murality.and Revealed 
Rtdigion,' which excittnl graat atteiitinn.And 
rapidly ran thniugh Ave editions. Objection 
was raised to tw<.f passages as savouring of 
Socinifini8m,and Harlo withdrew them. Ac- 
cording to I^lwin, Harte was at this time 
vicar of Gosfield in Essex. In December 1 737 
Pope writes to Holdsworth (author of the 
Latin poem 'Muscipuin') that Harte had 
ctmde»cended to stand for the poetry profea- 
sorship in Oxford, and bt-i^a Hnldsworth's in- 
tert'.'it in Harte'.s behidi. Wlicther Harte 
.'itood for the vacancy does not appear. At 
all events he was not elected. On Jan. 
1740 he again preached a sermon before the

cated by marriage fay 8 June following, on 
jl^ich dav another election was made (infor*

Bj his fint wife he had a son Dnvid [q. v.], 
•cren yeftrs old in September 1 7^8 ( Letter to 
Litt«r). During bis residence in London he 
was frvquently seen by John Byrom [q. v.] 
lie became an ardent supporter* of Hrrora's 
•harthnjid.in which imme of his later U'IIkts 
mre written, and a friend of the inventor, 
although his want of sympathy with IWrom's 
r«l>(ri"'i^ my.*tici.'5m and political loryism pro- 
Imhly pMvente<l u cluwr intimacy. 

Hsrtb^y was a firm beli»'Ver in Mre. Ste-

which he was an early sufforor. lie wrnfe 
two pamphlets in her defence in 1738, ond 
Ipod to procure the grant nfri.fXKW. voted to 
■ by parliament in June 17:^9 for the pub- 
ition of her secret. In May 1742 he had 
come to Bath with his family for the benefit 
of his wife's health, and decided to setile 
then^ permanently at a ' ploaRant house in 
thic New Sfjuare' ([..etters to Lister, 26 May 
■nd 2ltrc. 1742). HarlleTremainedotBath. 
and diwl there on 2» Aug. 1757. 1I« K-ft 
i«tie by hi« cecond marriage. 




In ■ letter of 17 May 1747 be says that 
his wife has 1,300/. a year by her father'^ 
will, and that his son by her will inherit 
2,000/. a year,, now in lh« hand* of tniste*^. 
He is oblige<l to continue at tiiii prTtfe««ion 
ill order to proviile for th** son by his firel 
wife, who has just gone to Oxford. Hartley 
appears to have b«en a man of ^inguhir 
simplicity and amiability of chamcter. lli^ 
son tell* us that h^* visited poor and rieli 
with equal sympathy, and consoled their 
minds while he comforted their bodiw. He 
was of the middle site, well-proi»ortianed. 
■<K\X h regular features, an antmatetl expression^' 
ami * peculiarly neat* in |)erson. lie wi 
on early riser and methodical in all hi>t' 
habitA. He had a wide circle of acquaint- 
once among men of letters and science. 
Among his iriendswervBishope Butler, Law^ 
and Warburton, and Dr. Jortin. He was a 
fellow nf the Iloyal Society, ond known to 
Dr. Uulett, Smith, the master of Trinity C'd- 
leg«,and toHooke,the historian. He ^t udied 
mathematics at Cambrid^ under Sander'on, 
and was eoff^r in promotmg the fiule of San- 
demon's '^gvbra both before and after the 
death of the author. He was also much iti- 
tcre«ted in mu^iic, poetry, and liistory. 

Hartley had devoted his leisure to philo- 
sophical inquiry from on early periocl, S<H>n 
after 1730 he had heard that the Her. Mr. 
Gay, A fellow of Sidney Stimtex College, liad 
a«Mirled the ' possibility of deducing all our 
intellectual pleasures and pains from aJ«ocia- 
tiun.* Uav published h\n opinions in a pre- 
face to Law V translation of. \rchhiAhop King's 
' Origin nf Evil.' In 1735 Hartley toldListcr 
that ho had rid himself of every doubt as to 
the truth of religion. He aften\'Brds pur- 
sued his theological studies, examining espe- 
cially the chronology of the Bible, ond reading 
the early fiithers, though chiefly in transla- 
tion. His correApondenco shows a strong 
religiout* feeling, although hcwaaadecide.<dra- 
t ionalist in principle. He tells Lister ( 1 2 Df^c. 
1736) thot be hos finished 'two small tr-o- 
lises about year and u hal f ago,' colled ' Tli>> 
Prngretis L'» Happiness deduced fmm rejison/ 
find start ingfrom the principle of ii-<mocintion. 
In 1738 he had enlBrp'd hix plan, and con- 
templated an * Introductiou to the HLstviri- 
of Man' in four parts. He sent rough drafta^^J 
of thi> first two parts to Lifter in that Tear,^^H 
ond afterwards n?plied to Lifter's critici8ms«^^H 
dt'fendiuj: his nwn doctrines of detf:nnini^<m 
and universal happinf9««, and condemning 
Butler's d<>ctrine of rv.Hi'ntmejit. He kejit his 
papers by him, and uUiuifttelypublislied iIk-iu

Amrrira. and of the African slave trade. It 
wiuj nroWhly owing to his fri^-ndship with

"Wraxail says that Hartley, • though dcwtl-

manner, poisessed Mme talent with unsullied 
probity, added to indefatigable perseveranca 
Hnd labour.' He adds that his speeches were 
intolerably lone and dull, and that 'hisriMng' 
always operated like a dinner-bell ' ( Mtmoin^ 
Lii. 490). 

Hartley's writings are mostly political^ and 
set forthtbeftrgmnentsoftbeextremeliberala 
of his time. In 1 7tt4 he wrote a vigorous at- 
tack on the Bute admiulstmtion, ' inscribed 
to the man who tbiukit himself a minister.'

jrmernor of Bombnr. I !e supt^rin tended the 
(li will burkiit ion of tbodctarliment iRhichtook 
Boroach in Nov<»mber 1772, and in July 1774 
he waa raised to the rank of captain, (uid re- 
CHived ihe commund of the fourth battalion 
of Rombay st'poys. 

The intenb*tin^ part nf Hnrlley's career 
Iwfjins with the first Mahmlta war. In 
Februarv" 177r) he won sent to coHijierarewitli 
Colonel Keoliriff in tiiizenit. Hut tlic rJenjfnl 
povcmment put an end t** the war in the 
-ViifTii!*! foll"winp, and Hartley, with thereat 
<»f the Englie^h forces, n-tiirned lu Uombtiy. 
Three years Inter hostililief were resumed. 
The IlfimbHy noveniinent now sent nn army 
to the Konkan, with orders to march acmM

of flix C(impniiie« of pn-nndier su-jioys nnder 
Captain Sti-wart first look posBewion of the 
TJhore Ghaut, where they were joined by the 
main army nnder Colonel Charle.s Kg;erton. 
Hartley had 'l>«'n oflered the jHist of qnarter- 
moRter peneml to tlie army, but he pr^ffpr^ed i 
to take bii^ yilac-e at the ht'a<! of his hattiition. 
On 4 Jan. 1770 Captain Stewart, a man of 
conf^pieiions (jallantrv, was killed in a skir- 
mi.sb at Karli, and Iluriley wus appointed 
to succeed him in command of the tiixcnm- 
panioe of grenadiers. On Jan. the Enj^lish 
army continued their march, end reached 
Tullypaom, only eiph teen miles from I'oonah. 
Bill John (."nnmc [q. v.], the civil commis- 
nioner with the army, liecami' ahirmed at 
the increjisingnumlx-rs of the Alnhrnttn!*, end 
detenuiniKl on a retreat. Hartley strongly 
resieled this proposal, but was oremiled, and 
the rutrt'ot iK'g-an on 11 Jon, Hartley's re- 
aen'C was dirwted to form the rear ^ard. At 
daybreak on 12 Jan. ihc Muhrutta« asctailed 
the retreating onny in Btrong- force. The 
main energy of their attack was directed on 
the re»r. 'The eepoys were Ihoroiig'hly de- 
moralised, and it wa.<« only bymeanft of ajwr- 
ftoiutl address from Hartley that they wure

hindered from whola^iale df^erttons. But, in 
opite of the condition of his own men and thtt 
superior nuinbcrB of the enemy, Hartley (iu8*i 
tamed the ronfiict with such skill that thf 
army was able to make rood its entry inti 
Wai^um. Hartley in X'ainproteated a^ains 
the convention of Wargaum, by which tluB^ 
J'lnglish. in return for the surrender of theifi 
ally, Jtug-hoba, were allowed to retire un- 
molested. On his arrival at Bombay in the 
sprlnjy of 1779, Hartley was universally re- 
garded as having saved the Knglisb army: 
^m nnnihitation. He was raised in thoi 
rank of lieutenant-colonel, and wa« appointed 
to tho command of the European infantry on 
the Bninbuy etttabli.Hhment. 

In December 1779 Hartley was sent wit 
a email tletachment to act under Colon< 
Thomas Uoddard [q. v.] in Oujterot. He I 
Ihe storming party which captured Abm' 
dnbod (in IH Feb. ensninff. On S May, how*! 
ever, he was recallml to Bond«iy, and ei 
trusted with the duty of securing the Korikai 
i.e. the district between the Ghauts and 1h«: 
8oa,froni which t he Bom bay frovernmeni dre 
their .tupplie..<i. On 24 May he defeated and 
di^jHTfied a party of Mnhrattas who hud be- 
pieged the fortified post of Kalli an to ihe north- 
east of Bombay. On 1 Oct. another attack 
of the enemv from the same direction wa» 
c-rn^hed at Afullungurh ; the BhoreUhaut, ft 
c*?ntral point of the monntain-chaiii, exactly 
opposite Bombay, wfl.< strongly guarded, ans 
the Konkan efFeetnally secured to the Eng«' 
lish. In November lioddard,in defen'oce Is; 
the wishes of the Jtomboy presidency, fonne^^ 
tho siege of Ifa^sein. Hartley, witb about 
two thoiwaud nten,wa*directe<I to maintain 
a position on the east, and »n prevent thu h 
Mahr&ttrix from nti^iug tliesii^ge. On 10 DfC^H 
a determined attack was made on Hartley'*^ 
entrenchments at Itortgtiur by twenty thou- 
sand Mohrnttos. After a severe conflict thft ^ 
BBsailftnta were repulsed and tho garrison n^l 
Bassein surrendored. ^M 

Hartley continued to net as military com- 
mandsnt in the Konkan when a despatch 
urriveil from London acknowledging his ser- 
vices but declaring his recent promotion as 
lieutenant-colonel informal. Hisfiirtberpro- 
motion and pay as a lieutenant-colintcl were 
to be suspended t ill those who werv liis senior* j 
shonld have been first promoted. Hartlen 
quitted the anoy deeply hurt, and in I){>cem-1 
bor 1761 started for Knplond to lay bis aui» j 
l)efore the court of directors. Tho latter re-J 
fueeil lo muke any concession, but ultimately \ 
recoramendtsl him to the king, who gavVj 
him the lieutenant-colonelcy of the 76t' 
regiment.

HAKTUBv SAM I EL (rf. 1670 r ), friend 
of MUtctt, va« bom toTmrd.'! the cln*e of the 
iixte«Dth eentarr, probably in Elbing. In 
a letter which he wrote in IGtiO to Dr. John 
Worth ington, the master of Je«us College, 
Cambridge, be nya that his father waa a 
Poliiib meTchantfOf a Camily originally tM^ttled 
in Latbuania, who waa a pnAeitant and fmi<- 
grated to Pnunia to escape the peT««:utioQ of 
the jesoita. The fiiK and aeoond h ive^ of his 
father were * Polooian gratlewomcn,' but the 
third, the mother of Samuel, appears to bare 
been tbe daughter of a wealthy English mer- 
chant of Daotitg. Hia own statonents show 
that he came to thii oountry aboat 1 6l'8, and 
became nominally a merchant, ' but in reality 
a man of various bobbies, and conducting a 
general new« agenoy.' Sucb was his life in 
1637, but even then he probably engaged in 
educational plan» aUo. He introduced tbe 
writings of Comemu«L, and lu^ charity to poor 
scholars wn^ so proftue that it brought him 
into actual want. In 1644 MJlton addressed 
to hiin his treatise on educ«tton; the pam- 
phlet i« full of praide of Hartlib. In the 
eame year he was aummoned as a witness on 
an unimportant point against Laud (Laud, 
Wurka, ix. 314). He published a great num- 
ber of pamphlet* at this time upon edtica- 
tion and industrial matters. In 1640 a pen- 
sion of loo/, a year was conferred upin him 
by the parliament for his valuable works upon 
husbandry. Evelyn describee a visit to bim 
in lOoJj {Diary, ed. Bray, t. 310), and sayv: 
'This gentleman was manler of innumerable 
curioaitiea and Teryoommuuicative.' A let' 
ter to Boyle (13 i^lay 16-V<) mentions his 
' very great straits, to .<aT nothing of the con- 
tinual (almost daily ) disbursement for others.' 
All the time he was carrying on an cxtcn- 
sivecorre^pondencewithliterary men, both at 
home and abroad. He was living at one time 
in Axe Ynrd, where, no doubt, he became 
ficquainli?d with Pepy*, who (Several timefi 
mentiottji him, hifiHon, and hi& daughter Nan. 
Hifi letters to Royle indicate that be was 
in bodily siiHerint;, ujid Worlhiugton's diary, 
where huiafrequeullv mentioued,8bowstbKt 
money was forwardi-'l tn him from his friends. 
The ]jarliument poid hU nimsion irregularly. 

In the first vearof the llestorutinn, llartUb 
wrote to Lord HerVrt, wm of the Jlartjuiaof 1 
Won*-e*ler, aliotit his'iiiust distressed and fo>

HARVEY, BEAUClf AMPBAGENAL 
(1762-1798), politician, son of Francis Har- 
vey of Bargay Castle, Wexford, was educated 
at Trinity College, Dublin, and called to the 
bar in 1782. lie acquired considerable re- 
putation as a banister, and promoted the 



public movementa for catholic emancip 
and parliamentary reform. On the del 
his father in 1792 Harvey inherited esta' 
Wexford and Waterfonl, with an u 
rental of 3,000/. He presided as chu: 
in 1793 at meetings of the Society of U 
Irishmen, Dublin. Although diminuti 
stature and of feeble constitution, he 
tinguished himself as a duellist. He 
nominated as a delegate by a public me 
in Wexford in March 1795 to preset 
address to Earl Fitzwilliam and a pe 
to the king. Before the commencem^ 
the Wexford insurrection in 1798, Harv 
duced his tenants to give up the arms 
which they had provided themselves. 
the government troops had evacuated 
ford on 30 May 1798, the leaders of the i 
gents unanimously agreed on 1 June, in 
camp,tliat Harvey should be appointed U. 
mand them inchief. Apprehensive forhi 
safety, and in the hope of checking exc 
Harvey unwillingly accepted the post, 
commander, he sent a despatch to G( 
Johnson at New Iloss on 5 June, dema 
the surrender of that town, with a vi 
avert rapine and bloodshed, but the mese 
who carried the paper was shot. On tl 
lowing day Harvey, as commander-in- 
signed a series of orders summoning n 
his camp and prohibiting, on pain of f 
plunder and excesses. He exerted a 
energies to restrain his followers, and 
licly reprobated the destruction of lif 
property. The insuigents, after the: 
pulse at Ross, deposed Harvey frot 
command. He subsequently sought i 
in flight, and took refuge in a cave 
rocky island outside Wexford Harbour 
was arrested there, brought to We: 
and arraigned before a court-martial 
Cornelius Grogan [q- v.] and John I 
Colclough [q. v.] After an elaborate d( 
Harvey was sentenced to death, lit 
hangod on 20 Juno at the bridge of 
ford, on which his head, with those of o' 
was impaled. Ilarvey left no childrei 
was attainted in July 1798, but his br 
was allowed to acquire his property.

riou« circumstances indicate thar. he was n further r>^commending himself for the ap- 
pPQ^-rou4 man. He wai« able to .isend three pointment that he composed his 'Khetor' 
tons to I'amhridge [see Hakvey, John {'/. and ' (Ciceroni an us,' brtth jiublished in 1577. 
l.'S92>. and KictlAliu], and Gabriel himself Healso besought SirThomasSmith, to whom

B^^V. in loW>-70. and '.\ Nov. 1570 was (jlected 
bUow of IVmbrokc Hall. At Pembroke he 
a«Hl iheacnuaintance of Spenser, the poet, 
who was admitted as a sizar the yeur before 
Harrey obtained his fellowship, and their 
acquaintance ripened into an intimacy which 
waa ferminaleil imly by Spenm-r's death.

he may teach rhetoric, hut thai hn may study 



Khetor' that his address<*s. delivered in 1577 
and 1578, were attended by overtlowiiig au-

his feliowjihip at IVmbrokc was on the |>OLnt

that !ii» friend might be allowe<l to continue

He would se»;m nt this time to have been 
hesitating as to his choice of a profession, and 
ho first of all sought election to a fellowship 
at Cbrists, with. a view to the ministry. 
DisBppuinted in this quarter he turned to 
Trinity Hall. Here he claimed relationship 
with the master, Henry Harvey [q. v.], who 

firobably iiuvoojited his claims, and* Harvey, 
laving declared his readini^s toembrace ibe

' moil!; pamphlet published in 1(!70 with great 
respect (*i* The Accomplixht Phtffirian^ &c.) 
\ About 107o he was made physician to 
I Charles II. In U'7h be was called, in con- 
' »idtatitm with olber physicians, to attend a 
' nobleman (Charle?, lorri Mohun, father of 
j the more not oriouaduelliiit), who bad received 
I a wound in a duel, of which he ultimati;ly

commanded by the king to write an account

H(>otbecaries, Wcause it revealed wt'nMs of 
their trade. Five years later (16d;i) Harvey 
published a scurrilous attack on the College 
of Physicians, under the title of 'The Con-

to be laid in Paris, but fniiuent London phy-

^is earlier doctrines, under the title of 'The 

A'anities of Philosophy and Phy^ick,' a prij- 

feasion of general scepticism mingled with 

new hypotlieses. 

Harvey's works have, however, the merit 
of a lively and witty style, though the hu- 
mour is often very rough. They ivftect light 
on medical customs and persons of the time, 
and thus have some hi::torical value. His 
portrait was engraved by Pierre Philippt' in 
1663 for his ' Archelogia,' and appears in a 
smaller form by A. Hertocks iu * Morbus An- 
glicus* and other works. He is repn*senti'd 
as a handsome young man with a look of 
much self-sufficiency. 

Harvey's writings, all issued in London, 
were: 1. * Archelogia Philosophica Xova, nr 
XewPrinciplesof Philosophy containing Phi- 
losophy in deneral, Metaphysicks,' &c., 4to, 
1(J03 (with portrait). 2. ' L>iscnurs(^ of the

pinus, Servetus, and all others who have been 
suggested as possible originals of the dis- 
covery. It remains to this day the greatest ' 
of the discoveries of physiology, and its 
whole honour belongs to Har^"ey. He was 
a regular attendant at the comitia of the 
College of Physicians, and took an active part 
in the procee<lingft. On 9 Dec. 1629, at the 
president's house, he examined Dr. James 
Primrose ''q. v.] for admission as a candidate, 
and passe<l him. On 2'2 Dec. 1630 he sub- 
ficribed '201. to the fund for purchasing a site, 
and on 2f» March 1632 drew up new rules for 
the college library. 

On 21 Jan. 1630 he applied to the gover- 
nors of St. Bartholomew's Hospital for leave 
of absence, in accordance with the king's 
command, to travel with the Duke of Lenox, : 
and in July he started on the journey. On 
23 Sept. he was in Paris (ATELiNG,*A/«"mo- 
rials of Jlartfy)^ but was in London 8 Oct. 
«nd 22 Dec. 1630. He afterwards visited 
Slois, Saumur, and Bordeaux. In February , 
1632 he was in Spain, and probably visited ' 
Venice before his return to England. In ! 
a letter to Lonl Dorchester, preserved in \ 
the Bodleian Library (Clarendon Papers, 1

I.»n 15 Oct. the meeting to<«k place, and 
Dr. Andrewf* was app^tinied a full physician, 
50 as to give Harvfv more liljerty. !>iiteen 
regulations drawn up by Han'ey were then 
discussed, and were all agreed to except one 
reiquiring the surgtHms to declare their treat- 
ment whenever the- physician desired. Their 
general purport is that absolutely incurable 
cases are not to be admitted, and that the 
sui^reons. apothecary-, and matron are to dis- 
chai^ all their duties decently and in per- 
son. In 1634 four I^ncnshire women had 
been urcusod of witchcraft (Avelixg, J/e- 
morials ofllarrey), and were sent to London. 
Han-ey was desired by the Earl of Man- 
chester (29 June 16.'U) to arrange with Baker 
and William Clowes (15^2-164^) '11. v.], the 
king's surgeons, for their examination. On 
2 July he superintended their physical ex- 
amination by ten midwives ana seven sur- 
geons, and found that there was nothing 
imnatural in their bodies, and so they were 

Eardoned. On 4 July 1634 he gave a tanned 
uman skin to the College of Physicians * for 
a monument to be reserved in the college.' 
On the same day, by the president's direction, 
he made a speech to the apothecaries persuad- 
ing them to conformity to the college onlora 
(MS. Amtalet). In 103i>, on 17 Nov., an 
impudent barber-surgeon name<l William 
Tellett, on being called to account (Sii»'KY 
Yocsro, Hecortl9 of the Barher-Surtfeons) for 
not recording the death of a maidservant 
whom he was attending, declared that her 
death was due to Dr. Harvey's physic. On 
16 Nov., Queen Henrietta ^I»ria'a birthday, 
he examined post mortem t he body of Thomas 
Parr, a Shropshire labourer, stated to have 
lived 152 years and nine months. His re- 
port of tlie post-mortem was publishetl in 
16(i9 by Dr. liett (/)(• Ortu ft Saturn San- 
ffuinin). On 7 April l(i36 ho left England 
again, in attendance on Thomas Howard, earl

prcntieed to Thonuu Bewick [q. v.], with 
whom he bocame a great favourite. IIo 
worked with Temple, another pupil, upon 
Bewick's *Kablea of .Ksop.' 1818, tnui&fcr-

seerwere his fellow-piipils with llnydi>n, for 
whom he engraved on wood, in imitation of 
copper-plftto, the largt" block of tlie ' Assasu-

HABWOOD. EDWARD. D.D. (1729-1 

1794), classical scholar and biblical critical 
was bom at Darwen, Loitcashlre, in 1729, 
A Oer attending a school at Darwen, he went ' 
in 1745 to the Hlackbum grammar school 
under Thomas Hunter, afterwards vicar of | 
Weaverharo, Cheshire, to whom he ascribe* ] 
the formation of his lil)eral tables {JntrwL 
to N. T., 1773, p. xi). Hunter wi.<(l)ed him to I 
cuter atQueen'a College, Oxford, with a riew 1 
to the church. But lua parents were dUscn-* I 
ter.i, and be waa trained forthe miniatry in tho I 
academy of David Jennings, D.D. [q. v.], &(< 
Wellclose Square, London. I^Aving the 1 
"academy in 1760, Har\vood engaged in teacli- 1 
ing, and was tutor m a. boarainp-^chool at 
Pcckhara. He preached occasionally for 
tiwirge Hi'nson [q. v.], and became iulimata 
with Lardner. In 1754 he removed to Con- 
pleton, Cheshire, where he superintended 
a grammar school, and preachen altpmotely 
at Wheelock in Cheshire and Leek in Staf- 
fordshire. At Conpleton ho aaw much of 
Joseph Priestley, then at Kantwich, who 
speaks of bim as ' o gt^id classical scholar and 
a very entertaining companion,' From 1757 
he asaocintcd also with John Taylor, D.D., 
who In that year became divinity tutor in 
the Warrifiptnn Academv; and in 1761 he 
preached Tavlor'a funeral sermon at Chow- 
bent, Lancashire. Antti)]iendix to the piinted 
sermon warmly takes Taylor's side in disputes 
about the academy, and shows that Hurwood 
wfls by this time at one with Taylor's 9emi- 
Arianthenlogy.although he says that he never 
adoptctl the tenets of Ariua, His letter of 
30Dec.l7S4toM'iIliam Christie [q. V.J shows 
that in luter life he inclined to Socinianisni 
(Monthly MejHUfiionj, It'll, p. 1,30). On 
l(i ttct. 17(i-> Harwoud was ordained to the 
Tucker Street prvsbyterian congregation, 
Itristol. Ho had married, and wasnowbur-

of the county of Kent ocr'upied him for uy-

The mannscriptfl of many antiqaariw wore

eighteen, without a lecal qnnUfieatiou. and 
aft^r only a few months' study in I^ondou, 
was elected hoURe-surgeon to the Worcester

direction of Dr. Wilson Philip, one of the 
phyMcinns to tho infirmary. In l.Sl.j be 
enten-d at KJinburgh X'niversity, and con-

and was at once appointed pbyitician to the 
Worcester infirmnry, and fur mnny years 
waa tho leading practitioner in W'orcestw-

of provincial medical practice, be founded in 
18:28 the 'Midland Medical and .Surgical 
Ueporter,' to which he conlribui4>d largely 
during it» four years' existence. In W>i2 it 
was abandnnpil in favour of a project for 
funning a provincial medical association for 
the advancHtnent nf raiMlical science and the 
medical prnf(?!wion. A meeting of medical 
men was held at tlie Worcester infirmary on 
11* July 18^:;, when the Provincial Medical 
and Surgical As-iooiation was forme<l, and 
Hastings delivered an inaugural addreas. For 
many years Hastings was the secretary and 
leading spirit of the association, skilfully 
gtiidlng it through stormy waters. In IWO 
the 'Provincial Medical and Surgical Jour- 
tinl ' was established, and In Ih4S it waa 
adopted as the organ of the as-sociation. In 
IHTifl the title * Rritish ' was subntituted for 
' Provincial,' owing to the growth of the as-

ffranditon of Sir Hugh Haitinga (1307 ?- 
1347) [q. T.], and great -grsndrton of John, 
ftccond baron Hastings [q. v.], by his second 
■wife. His father aerved at Brest in 1378, 
nnd in the Scottish expedition of 13S-'i, In 
138fl he waa with .Tuhn of Gaunt in Spain. 
In all these wari he bore the anus 'or, a 
maunche gule*i' (BLou^nci.D, vi. 414) ; hin 
aonaaysthathediedat ' Vylellove inSpayiiH." 
He married Anne, daughter of Edwanl, lord 
Spencer; by her he hod two sons. Hugh, 
the elder, who died without issue at Calais 
in 1395, was, on the death of his cousin John, 
third carl of Hastings, in 1389, declari!cl 
lieir of the half blood, but Reginald, third 
lord Grey of Kuthin [q. v.], claimed priority 
aH heir of the whole blood in right of his 
grandmorher KlizalxMh, daughter of John, 
«eeond baron Hastings by his fir-itwifo. The 
dispute was nominally a^ to tbe right to 
bear the Ila^^tiug^arma, ' or, amauuch gules,' 
but it virtually included the right tn the 
family honours. It became one of the rntisM 
rflehrtn of the middle ages, and was still un- 
decided at the death of Hugh, and Kdward 
being then oidy fourteen yea« old, it was 
further delayed. 



In 1401 (trey petitioned tbe king to ap- 
point n curator for Sir Edward Hastings m 
order tluit hitt suit might Im dealt with ( Ro% 
Pari. iii. 480), but though there were son 
le;ial pniceedingii at ibi^ time [ Use, pp. rj<}-7

mission was issued by John of I^ancaRtei;

at Westminster 4 Feb. 1408, and judgmea

demned in costs, but at once appealed. At 
tbe coronation of Henry V Hs-stings claimed 
to carrj- the spurs Iwfore the king, whic' 
Orev had done undisputed in Kll'U. On :1'2 MaJ 
and'22 Nov. 1413, and again on 8 Feb. 14U 
commissions were isaoed to hear the appeaL 
but the trial was apparently prevented bj 
the Erencb war, in which Hastingr tookpor' 
in tbe r**tinu'' <if the Earl of Dorset. On' 
10 Feb. 1 117, before the trial came on, Grey

15 June 177S received the rank of lieutenant- 
colonel, and in the same year was nominated 
adjutant-freneral to the force.") in America. 
At Philadelphia lie rai^d a corps called the 
Volunteers of Ireland, which greatly distin- 
guished itself in the field. He took part in 
the retreat from Philadelphia to Xew York, 
in the action at Monmouth, and at the sio^ 
of Charlestown. He was next employed in 
South Carolina in keeping the Americans in 
check until the arriv^ of Lord Cornwallis, 
and on 10 Aug. 17iS) commanded the left 
division of the iiriti.'>h forces at the battle of 
Camden. On '2'y April 1781, with only eight 
or nine hundred men, he attacked and de- 
feated a larger body of Americans under the 
command of General Greene at Hobkirk'a 
Hill. After harassing Greene for some time 
he was compelled to withdraw his troops to 
Charlestown. His healthhavingbrokendown 
owing to the incessant fatigue of the cam- 
paign, he was obliged to leave America in 
the summer of 178L The vessel in which 
he sailed for England was captured by a 
French cruiser and taken to Brest, but upon 
an exchange of prisoners soon aftenivartls he 
was released, and immediately retumfd to 
England. ICawdon was a stem martinet, 
and was guilty of several acts of impolitic 
severity during the American war. He even 
went so far as to set a price on the head of 
every relwl. He showed, however, remark- 
able military ability, and Cornwallis de- 
.«cribed his victory at Hobkirk's Hill ' as by 
farthemostsplendidof this war \('jrrtH-aWi«

I During the recess of 17S0-1 Rawdon was

and on ill) r>er. in the same year moved the 
amendment on the rpgvncv quest ion iu favour 
of the Prineeof Wales, whose intimate friend 
lie had beeome {Part. Hist, xxvii. ^tfl8-ll). 
On the death of lier bp^ther Francis, tenth 
earl of Uuntinp-don, in October 17H9, Lady 
Slotra succee<led to the hnrdny of IlastinffS, 
white the earldom of Hinitin^^on remained 
dormant until IHIO, when it wa» confirmed 
to IIiujs Francis IIu«tinir9 [u.v.l.n descendant 
of the second earl. On Idreb. 171X1 Itnwdon, 
in pursuance of his UDcleV will, took the sur- 
name of IlaRtiup':! iu addition to Mxa own 
eumamo of lUwdon, and on '2Q June 1793 
succeeded liia father as the Bccond Karl of 
Moira in the peerapi of Ireland. lie was 
promrited to tlie rank of innjur-Lfenoral on 
12 Oct. 17!)a. and wiw appointed, on Corn- 
■wallis's reonmmHndutlon.to the command of 
an expedilionarv force, which in Decem- 
ber WI19 sent to aid the insum-ction of the 
royalist* in IlrirtanVt but returned with- 
out etTectintrimrthinp. In June 171'4 he was 
decpalcUed with seven thousand men to (he 
assistance of the Duke of York. lie lauded

sujK'rior in numbeni, etfHeli'd a junction with 
the Duke of York's army at Malinefi. 

In 17S)7 njiiihorlive scheme was set on foot 
by ceridin niembersi of parliament for the for- 
zant ion of a new ministry, at the bead of which 
Moiru was to be ])lQce<J, and from which nil 
'persiiiig who on eitluT sidu had made them- 
selves obnoxious to the piiblick' should be ex- 
cluded (Ofiit. Mittf, 171*8, vol. lxviii.pt. i.p. 
22t)). In March and a^min in November of | 
this venr Moira brought the state of Ireland 



before the Enjflinb House of Lonls, and de- 
clared Ills conviction that 'these discontents 
have arisen from too mistaken an application 
of severities,' and that he had ' seen in. Ire- 
laud the most absurd, as well os the most 
dift^IMftting, tyrunnv that any nation ever 
ffroaned under' {Pari. I£i«t.' xxxni. 10o9). 
On 1 Jan. 1708 he was appointed a lieuti^- 
nimt-gvneral, and on 19 Feb. made another 
violent attaek upon the Iriwh poremment 
iu the Irish Housii uf Lords. In March ho 
otfered in I ho English Houac of Lords lo 

firove by aflidavits the statemoDts wbicb he 
;nd previously made in both houses with 
regard to the Btatc of Ireland, but the cbal- 
leng^H was not accepted {ib, xxxin. 1353-4). 
During- the debate on the reetdulions rela- 
tive to a union with Ireland in March 1799 
Moira opposed the meftftun' in a speech of 
considerable power (I'A. xxxiv. tK)6-706). 
But though h« voted by proxy against th& 
union in tho Irish House of Lord.*, ho after- 
wards withdrew his opposition to it in the 
English house (('fr. xxxv. 170-1). In 1801 
Moira onjiosed tho Irish Martial Law and 
HabiMS Corjuis Suspension Indemnity Bills 
(ift. 12H7-8, IfJIiH). lie was appointed com- 
mandeMu-chief of the fnn-es ui Srotlnnd, 
where he became exceedingly jtopnlar, and 
on 25 titpt. 1803 was promoted to the nuik 
of general. In December 1803 he was ]iro- 
posed for tho oflice of lord-rector of the uni- 
versity of Glasgow, and was defeated by tbo 
Lord-ohief-baron Dundoa by only one vote- 
On 33 May 1804 he received the colonelcv 
of tho 27th foot. When the ministry of ' Ail 
the Talents ' was formed in 180B, M'oiru waa 
admitted to (he privy council (o Feb.), and 
ujtpuinted master of the ordnance (8 Feb.) 
nn<l constiibleof the Tower (12 Feb.) He 
took an active part on behalf of the Prince of 
Wales in the investigation into the conduct 
of tho princess. 

On tliG occe.«siou of ih^ Duke of Portland 
to power in March 1S07, Moira retired from 
the ordnance ofllce, iind was succeeded by 
John, second earl of Chatham. On thedeatb

his arrival he found several qiiBNtious of the 

iinit imiK»rtance awaiting itettlenient. One

in the peerago of the United Kiugdoui, a 

vote of thotiks having been unanimously 



}>&s««d in both houses of parliament a few 
lay« previouflv 'for his judicious aminge- 
ments in the plan, and direction of the mili- 
tarv operutioufi against Nepaul ' (j'A. xxxv, 
'2ii-}-:i, l'38-43). Tliough Hastings, Uke 
Minto, had impreftwtd upon the court of 
directors the necessity of fupprt^ssing tho 
predatory proceeding* of the Pmdorees, they 
still continued to Insist upon the observance 
of a policy of non-inteneution. This policy 
had been misunderstood by the native powers, 
and the Peshwa, tog*fther with the othor 
Mahratla chieftains, had l»een engaged in 
ceiUielesM intrigues against the British, The 
chief objection of the directors to the extir- 
pation of the Pindoretts was the fear of irri* 
tating the Mahmtta?, while Ilastings, on the 
other band, was convinced that the only way 
to obtaiu permanent order was to annihilate 
the ereat military states of Central India. 
(In hearing of the raid into the Northern 
Sircars, Canning, then at the head of the 
board of control, in a despatch dated 26 Sept. 
I8IH,aulhori;:!ed Hiu^tings to procet^d against 
the Pindarees, and even the Calcutta coun- 
cil after the third irruption of the Pindareea 
resolved thai ^igo^ou8 measures should be 
taken for their suppression. While prepar- 
ing for war Hastings entered into several 
subsidiary treaties with a view of securing 
the assistance of tho more powerful chiefs in 
the extiriiiition of the Piudarees. Towurtls 
the close of 1817 the mililitPk' preparations 
were completed, and llaallngs took command 
of the central di^hsiun, which was stationed 
nt Cawn])ore. In November tho IVshwa, 
who hod L'uneluded a treaty with the British 
ill I he previous year, suddenly broke into 
war. lie was, howe\er, brilliantly defeated 
by (-'olonel Burr and Klphinstone with o small 
British force, Poouah was occupied by Gene- 
ral Smith, and the Peshwa had to fleo for 
his life. Appa Saheb, the rajah of Nagpoor, 
after hiss r\.-pulj5e at Seetabuldoe, surrendered 
hini<<elf, and his army, on refusing to deliver 
uTi tile guns, WQ8 defeated at the battle of 
Nagpoor. Holkar was routed by Sir Thomo-H 
llisUip lit 5Iehid]M»or, anrl on Jan. con- 
cludod a iH'ttce with the British iruMTUuient. 
The PmoaiTi'S, whuse strength had been 
dejicndent on the support of the native states. 
Were easily broken up. Tlie result of this 
brilliant campaign of four months whs to 
establish the suprcmacv of the British power 
tfaroughoiit India. 'The Pi'shwa was de- 
posed and his dominions annexed, while the 
territories of Sindin, Holkar, and tho rajah of

negotiation of a loan «)f sixty lakbsof rupees, 
which the niitam's mini-ater declared to be

charging the arrean« diu* to ten* public e»tta- 
blisbment, paying olftliH incumbrancesdue to 
the native bankers, and for making advances 
to tho ryots. Soon after this permission had 



hetin given, onlers were received from ihaj 
court of dirertorH, ex]iresfling their strong] 
disapproval of the whole of these traiutac- I 
tiona, and directing the annulment of tha 
exemption which had Iwen granted to the 
firm. Metcalfe, who had been apjninted nv 
sideat ftt Ilyderabad in November \^'2Q, dU- 
corered that a large portion of the loan hud 
been misflpplied, and came to the conclu&inn 
that the existence of such a powerful trading- 1 
company was dnngerouR to the sdrainifitra- ] 
tiuii of goverament. Tbe loon was paid off] 
by the resident^ and all the dealings of tha J 
firm were declared illegal. 

Hastings had imprudently avow*ed an in- 
terest in the prospenty of t he house of I'alnier 
& Cu. in a letter to Sir William Kumbohl, 
who had married his ward, and wos one of 
tbe partners of the hrm. In consequence of

1216 his lands wen fbifeited : he was taken 
pni^ooer at Lincoln in 1:217, and wa5 one of 
William of Anmale'a ^uppurterv at Bthara in 
1±?1. Hrnry Hastings the elder fought it»

be was one of the nobles who took the cross, 
but died in July of the sante year. Matthew 
Paris calls him * a distinguished knight and 
wealthy baron '(ir. 213, T. 96, 174). 

Henry was under age at his father's death, 
and the king gvtatM the wardship of his 
estates to Gfmvj de Lusignan, who, how- 
ever, in the following year tnnsferrvd it to 
William de Cantelupe. In 1260 Hastings 
received a summons to be at Shrewsbury 
in arms on B Sept. in order to take part; 
in the Welsh war (Rtport im Diffnittt of a 
Peer, iii. 21). He was one of tbevonng noble* 
who at the parliament held in ^(ay ]2H2snp- 
ported Simon de Monlfort in his complaint 
of the non-obserranre of the provisions of 
Oxford ^W^Si^KS- i^- liJ3>. and siding with 
the barcms in the war of 1263 was one of 
those excommunicated by Archbishop Boni- 
face. Haetinga also joined on 13 Dec. 1263 
in signing the inittnimrnt which bound the 
barons to abide by the award of Louis IX. 
In April 12H4 he was in Kent with Gilbert 
de Clare, and took jmrt in the siege of Ro- 
chester (Geiiva<>r, ii. 2351. He marcbe<l with 
Karl Simon to l^wes, and was knighted bv

He Iield meetinga at his hoose 10 orsanis« 
nosttDCe to it^ and his energetic measure^ 
lud considerable influence in frostralin^ the 
Saigas of the northern conspirators in l.Jtff*. 
^1wa rumours arose of a possible northern 
Rbellion^ precautions were taken bv Eliza- 
beth to prevent the escape of the Queen of 
Scots. Recognising that Huntingdon had 
special reasons of liis own for oppo^ino- the 
scheioes of the conspirators, she. on 1-1 Sept.. 
gare instructions that Shrew^burr, then in 
charge of Marv, * shall, as he see cause, adver- 
tise the Earl of Huntingdon and Viscount 
Hereford, and require their a-«si=tancrr to 
withstand any attempt to carry her away by 
force, and that they be in readiness with .>uch 
company of horsemen as they think them- 
selves well assured of" ( Cai, itatJUld MSS. \. 
419; IIayses, Burghley State Papfrit.-p. 'i22 ». 
Huntingdon arrived at Wins^eldon the I'.hh, 
and assisted Shrewsburr in conveyine the 
Queen of Scots, for greater safety, to Tut bury, 
which he garrisoned with five hundred men. 
On 22 Sept, 1.j69 Elizabeth sent instructions 
to Huntingdon to supersede Shrew«bury, the 
ground of the *dircctionso sudden and strange ' 
being ascribed to 'the said Earls infirmities 
and request for help, and to the Queens fear 
of some escape ' (Cal. Hatfeld MSS. i. 422 ; 
Hatxes, p. 026). The order cau.sed much 
commotion in the household of the Queen of 
Scots, who, when she learned it, wrote to 
the French amba.ssador F^nelon to take note 
of the illegality of placing her in the hands 
of one who had rival claims with her to the 
throne of England (Labaxoff, Letters of 
Mary Stuarty iii. 182). Shrewsburv affected 
to ignore the order, on the ground that Eliza- 
beth was under an entire misunderstanding 
in regard to the state of his health, and 
Huntingdon, recognising that he had been 
placed in a false position, wrote on the 25th ' 
requesting'eitherhisdischargeor to be W»^, 
or to have some other match \Cal. Ilatjield 
MSS. i. 424 ; Hatxbp, p. 530). Orders had, 
however, been despatched on the same day 
making him and Shrewsburyjoint custodians. ' 
This arrangement continued till November, '•■ 
when, finding his position uncongenial, Hunt- 
ingdon on the 4th obtained liberty to depart, 
and on the 7th left Tutbury, ' well contented 
and friendly.' On the 20th, in view of the 
threatened rising in the north, Huntingdon 
was made a lord-lieutenant of Leicestershire > 
and Kutlandshire, to which was added after- J 
wards the office of lord-president of the north, ! 
1 Dec. 1572. On the 23rd orders were sent ' 
him to remove the Queen of Scots from Tut- j 
burv to Coventn'. This he and Shrewsbury 



did, but the place bein? found unsuitable, 
she was subsequently removed to Shrews- 
bury's castle at Sheffield, after which Shrews- 
burv returned to court. 

lluntinedm was one of the nobles specially 
snmmoned to meet the privy council on 1 4 Dec. 
1569 to consider the evidence that had been 
brought against the Queen of Scots by the 
regent Moray and the other Scottish commis- 
sioners. In 1573 he sat upon the trial of 
Norfolk for hijh treason, and the same year 
he was constituted lieutenant of the counties 
of Leice?ier and Kutlacd. as well as of those 
nf York. Northumberland. Cumberland, and 
Westmoreland, and the bishopric of Duiham. 
In thiis caicici;y he had a conference in 1575 
with tberezent Morton to settle the dispute 
arisingfromtheraidoflledswire. Onl5June 
1579 he was installed a knight of the Garter, 
and the following year was appointed one of 
a commission to inquire into the recusancy 
of certain of the gentry. After the appre- 
hen=-ion of Morton in loSl ^see l>orGLAS, 
Jame?!. d. ISSK. Huntingdon was directed 
by Elizabeth toraise in Yorkshire a force ' of 
persons well affected in religion.* and con- 
duct them to Berwick. Here Huntingdon 
speedily arrived with two thousand footmen 
and five hundred horse, but was kept in idle- 
ness on the borders, not withstandingrepeated 
warnings and remonstrances on his part that 
tho attempt to negotiate with Lennox was 
' madness.' and his scornful condemnation of 
the proposal of the attempt to save Morton's 
life by thea-rsassinat ion of Lennox. His words 
were unheeded until the sen-ices of the troops 
were rendered valueless; and Randolph at 
last saw 'that nothing now could save Mop- 
ton's life.' The troops were thereupon dis- 
missed to their homes. Huntingdon waa 
active in taking measures against the threat- 
enetl Spanish invasion of 1588. He died 
without issue, 14 Dec. 1595, and was interred 
at Ashby-de-la-Zouch. His countess sxir- 
vived him till 4 Aug. 1620. Huntingdon 
had compiled in 1583, under his own imme- 
diate inspection, a complete history of his 
family, of which there is a manuscript copy in 
the British Museum (MS. Harleian 4774"). 
He settled on Emmanuel College, Cambridge, 
t lie rectories of Loughborough and Thurcaston 
in Leicestershire, those of .\ller and North 
Cttdbury, Somersetshire, and the vicarage of 
Piddleton, Dorsetshire, but the last was lost 
to the college through some flaw in the deed. 
Camden says ' he was of a mild disposition, 
but being a zealous puritan, much wasted 
his estate by a lavish support of those hot- 
headed preachers.' By some his support of 
the puritans was attributed to policy and 
the desire to create in the countr\* a senti-

HASnXGS. JfiHX, s^^ond EiEL of 
Pekbboee I I347-137->i. was only son of 
Laurence Hasting? 'q. v.". first earl, and 
Affnes. daughter of Roger Mortimer, earl of 
March. His father died in 131^, while he 
was little more than a year old. and during 
hi« minority his estates were managed brhis 
mother. In 1:369 he was admitted into the 
onlerof theGarter. in succession to the Earlof 
Warwick. In the same year he accompanied 
the Earl of Cambridge into France with an 
armed force destined to reinforce the Black 
Prince in Aquitaine. They landed at Saint- 
Malo and proceeded to the captun' of Bour- 
deille, and then to that of the Koche-sur^Yon, 
where he was knighted {i'handog IhraUi^ 
4CI2-ii6). He seems to have declined to 
aerre under Sir John Chandos ""q. v.1, but- 
being defeated by the French at Pumoii, near 
Poitiers, be was glad to send to Chandos for 
assistance. After having made a raid into 
the province of Anjou he rejoined the Black 
IMnce at Cognac, and proceeded with him 
to the siege and capture of Limoges. Having 
returned to England he was named, 20 April 
1372, lieutenant of the king's forces in Aqui- 
taine, and about that timeproc*H*ded to that 
destination with a fleet laden with forces ami 
supplier. In attempting ton^lieve the siege 
of La Kochelle he encountered a Spanish 
fleet before that to^Ti, composed of ships 
heavier than his own. After a fight which 
lasted two days he was entirely defeatwl and 
taken prisoner 23 June. He was removed to

was in deacon's orders, can scart^ly be 
redjoned us a regular clerj,'}Tiian, was liL-r

[q. v.], the partit^ulnr baptist, whose once fa- 
mous treat ino, *TbG Reignof Grace,' »hu dij^ 
1ril}uTed widely, and she ^vas at ont! time in 
the habit of attending Dr.Harker'sminiBtry at 
Suiters' Hall. She also kept up ber int^rt-st 
in thp -Moruviantf, and ventured to renion- 
Btrnte with Count Zinzendorf upon his otii- 
nions. The' connexion 'of which she was tne 
founder seems to have grown up by degrees. 
Her first rt^ular chapel was built at Brighton, 
and paid for by the sale of ber jeweU in 1701. 
Slie noon founded various chapids in Sussex. 
In order to attract the upper clagees, &he 
choice f^uch places as Bath, Tunbrldge, and 
London as her strongholds. When sbe huill 
the chapel in Spa Fields in 1779, Mr. Sellon, 
a clerg}-man, opposed the arrangement. She 
thought that as a pcen-ss sh(^ had a right 
to employ ber own cliaplains at any time and 
place in the mo«t public manner. A trial 
took place in the consistorlal court of IjOQ- 
don,and the result was that elic was obliged 
to take shelter under the Toleration Act; 
her minleti'rs took the oath of allegiance as 
dii*senting ministers, and her chnpeU were 
registered as dissenting phiecs of worship. 
The parochial ministerB wlio wfire her chap- 
lains, Honmine, A'enn, Berridge, and others, 
licreupon witbdn-w from Iht connexion, 
though tbev 9till continued to take a deep 
interest in fier work. 

In 1767 Treveoea House, in the pariah of 
Talgarth in North "Wales, was to he let on 
lease. Lady Huntingdon resolved, after con- 
sulting her triendi*, to open it a« a seminarir* 
for the training of her ministers. Trevecea 
was opened by WliiteReld on 'Ji Aug. 17<W^, 
Ijidy Iliintingdon's birthday. Fletcher was 
appoinlod president. He was to \isit it as 
of^cn M Itis duticjt at Madclcy would allow 
him. Joseph Benson [q. v.], transferred from 
Kingswood, U-came anor a short time the 
head-master on John Wealey's recommenda- 
tion. Lady Hmitiugdon henceforward spent 
much of her time at Trevecea, taking a deep 
interest in her students, and sending them 
about to 'supply' the congregations under 
her patronage. After three years' residence 
they ' might, if they desired, «nter the minia- 
trv either of the church of Knglund or any 
other protestant denomination. As far as 
she could Lady Hiuitingilon kept her hold 
on the church of England. Her plan was to 
have 'a rotation of clergy throughout the 



large chapels and congregations.' "Whitefield 
died in i/70, and left her by his will con- 
aidembleposseffsions in America. This ksl her 
to commence mission work in that countr}'. 
But soon after the arrival of her missionAriett 
in (redrgia, the orjdiun bouiie which Imd been 
founded there by Wliirefield was burnt down, 
and this entailed a los.s of lt),<XX)/. upon Lady 
Huntingdon. In 177l)al50 the famous minuter 
of Wesley's conference, which were w ob- 
noxious to the Calvinistic methodist?, ap- 
peared. Lady Huntingdon took an active 
part in the protest against these minutes, and 
one result of the disagreement was the with- 
drawal of Fletcher from the presideucv, and 
the dismissal of Benflou from the he&a-ma»- 
lersliip of IVevecca CoUoge. In spite of these 
checks the work grew largely. * Nolhinff,* 
she writes in 1774, 'ran (express the dira- 
cultiefi I feel for ht^lp<?rs, from the amazing 
increase of the work everywhere.' Hitherto 
she had exercised morally, though not le- 
gally, entire control over the whole * con- 
nexion/ and supported the college at Trevecea 
at herown e:tT>euse. Her death might cause 
n coltap-^e of the work. An as^iciatioa waa 
therefore formed in 1790, at her own request, 
to aid her during her life, and to perpetuate 
the connexion after bur death. X^pon this 
event in 171)1, Lady Anne Erskine took her 
place. Her chapels were bequeathed to four 
persons, and in i79l*, when the lease of Tre- 
vecea House expired, the college was removed 
to Chesbunt in Itpi-tfordsbire. 

Lady Huntingdon's interests were by no 
means conlined to her own ' connexion.' Slie 
used her social positi<m to further her reli- 
gious purtioseft. She visited her cousin, Lau- 
rence Shirley, fourth earl Ferrers, when 
under sentence of death, and Huudfl during 
his last illness in 1759. Her opposition to 
the ncitntion for a rtdaxation of subscription 
in i7i'2 was acknowledged in a letter frt»ni 
Burke. She remonstrated with thfl ArcJi- 
bishop of Canterbury (I>r. t'oniwallis) for 
holding * routs,' and when her remonstrance 
was fruitless made her way to the court, 
niul laid her case before Cieorge HI and 
(^ntH'ii Chariot I e, by both of whom she was 
cordially n?ceivLil. On 17 June 1791 she died 
in her boufce at Spa Fields, London, and was 
buried at Ashby-de-la-Xouch. Her family 
consisted of four sons and three daughters. 
There aresevernl port rait sof her; one painted 
by Bowyer was engraved by J. Fittler tn 
1790, anotht-r in mewotint by J. Itussel ap- 
peared in 1773. * Ijidy Huntingdon's Con- 
nexion* still hnlds its place among the reli- 
gious communities,

_nd here ihev *>oon became atrn itened for pro- 
risiona, until Hastings joined them and euc- 
peeded by his influence with the natives in 
fumlthiiig them with F«upplifj<. Here, in the 
beginning of 1757, be raarriwl hia fir»t wife, 
the widow of a Captain Campbell, t^hc died 
L few years later, as did both the children that 
■be bore him. After the recouijuest of Cal- 
attafneCuTK, Roiikkt] Ha-Mings whs sent 
f Murshiddbad as resident at'^tlie court of the 
new nawab. He kept up a regular correspond- 
mce with Clive, now governor in Calcutta, 
md hip* earlier letters show inejqK^rience and 
tivdulity. Against which CHvo was obliged 
warn him. He also ranic into conflict 
K-ith Hiija Nand Kumar (the nawab's de- 
puty) as to Iheir re-ipvtive functions and 
luriKlirtion.but Clive with considerate firni- 
acss a<yuBted the difficulty. Early in 17*h» 
CliTe U'ft the country, ond hia sucressor, 
'^Ifolwell, determined to dep<ise the nawdb, 
Wir Jaffier, and to nrpUce him by Mir iCdsim, 



his rainisler and son-in-law. Hastings bore 
a subordinate part in this revolution, but had 
no share in the gifts that were distributed ou 
that occasion among the members of council. 
He continued fur st)me months at his pattof 
resident, but iuKKl wns summoned to council 
in Calcutta, wliere the government had l)fteii 
assumed by A'auaittart. The new nawab, Mir 
Kasim, showwl ffreat annoyance at the con- 
duct of the BritiSi officials, who were passing 
their own private onsignments free of transit 
duty, and lending their flog to pass consign- 
ments that belonged to others. The most 
active of thf.'Re olKciala wa.^ Ellis, head of the 
factory at. Tat mi, and thither Hastings pm- 
ceedeu, onihe n.'ijuesl of Vansiftart, in order 
to effect a reform in the tnin.s:t system anil 
an agreement butwi^n Klli»< and the nawab. 
He arrived at Patna in April 17lli?, but found 
him«;elf unable to conciliate Ellis. His des- 
patchtjs, however, attracted the attention of 
Vansittart to th»' abuses and oppre^^^ions 
under which the people were sufU'riug, and 
Hastings drew up a paper in which be aimed 
fttsucharcgidation oftlietraiBcaashould pro- 
tect thft nawab und his subjects without pre- 
judice to the company's rights. Tlie present 
Rtate of things, as ho truly observed, * bodet! 
no good, either to the nawdb's revenue or to 
the quiet of the country, or the honour of our 
nation.' Articles were accordiogly framed by 
the governor on the basis rocomnien<led by 
Hastioga, which the nawab readily adopted 
and immediately promulgated. The majority 
of the Calcutta council indignantly repu- 
diated the arrangement, and the nawdb at 
once declared the duties entinfly abrogated 
and the wholo trade free. 

Hastings, who had rejoined his post in Cal- 
cutta, was now in a trying position. A\TiiIe 
the nawab denounced him as a traitor, his 
colleagues in cotincil abused him for par- 
tiality to the nawdh; and one of them naminl 
Hatjton, in thf Iit'Ht of d»'bate, struck Hast- 
ings in opi'U council, an act for which, how- 
ever, he had to make an ample apologj*. 
Both the nawdb and the British now pre- 
pared forvrar, Patna was token and retaken, 
Ellis and all his followers were killed by the 
nawdb's orders; but the British force from 
Calcutta Sijon exacted a stem retribution. 
The nuwah wfi>t defeated and driven into 
exilp, and Mir Jaflier ^e^1o^.'d. 

In Beceml)er 17*U Haslings returned to 
England by the Modwoy, I'jist Indiaman. 
While his colleagues had been making their 
fortunes by corruption and private trade, he 
had continued honourably poijr. He was, 
however, able to buy an annuity of UOO/. for 
the widow of his uncle Howard, who waa

of the revenues of the three provinces, the 
British rulers had found it necessary to make 
the collections themM'lvc* instead of merely 
accounting with the imwtib'3 officials, af- 
though they did not clearly perceive how 
this was to be done. Meanwhile the entire

The deputy diwun^ of Bengal ond Bihar were 
to be dismissed and brougiit to trial for mal- 
versation, llaja Nand Kumar being employed 
in the nnwocution. The revenue appeared • 
incapable of incrcese, but the debt was grow-^ 
iug. The company was threatened with in- ■ 
w,>lvency, wbde the ministers of the crown 
were looking to it for loons and testing it«

Such were some of the problems which were 
to occnpT Uoatings rmd troublethc remainder 
of bis lu'e. 

One of the first matters which the direc-

into the place of one or Iwlh of them on their 
conviction. Thedireciors never con tern platc*d 
this. The court took care tu remind Hast-

for excluding liim from iKiwer. Indeed from 
the facts given by Klphinstone, who refer* 
especially to the Uouse of Coramnns* 3rd

the native courts in the interior entirely 
under the con t rol of t he head revenue officers, 
with a chief court for criminal apjteiiU at the 
seat of government under a native chief jus- 
tice. A court of civil appeal sat al^i in 
Calcutta, the whole being controlled in tho

b<itb parties wt-re European Itritish subjects, 
KngliKli law was admimstervd iuthd'mayors

cauM's for Caleulta. 

In all these reforms lurkotl elementa of 
provocation to class prejudices and even to 
vested interests. Muhatuad I{A7ji and Shatab 
Hai were indignant at having been tried, 
Nund Kumar was vexc<l at their acquittal, 
while the young civilians wer e aorc at tbo 
employment of natives and the valuation of 
the estates ; foremost in their ranks being 
John Shore, afterwards l>rirdTeigumouthiaua 
one of llaittings's successors and admirers, 

AVhilu the.<e cares were occupving Hast- 
inff3 he was suddenly involved in external 
allairs. The province of Katahr had been 
couquerwl some ttfly years before by a band 
of Afghan adventurers called Kohillas. from 
whom it had received the name of IJoltilkand. 
Lying bt-tween tlio eastern frontier of the 
Oudh dowinionft and the R[»eeial domain of 
the emperor, and constantly liable to Mah- 
rattu iuvaaioii IVom the southward, it was 
becoming a kind of chronic sore in the bosom 
of Hindustan. Though impotent agaiiuft the 
Mahrat loa, the RohilUu fought bitterly among 
themselves, while theoripnalpopulation was 
rack-rented and left without protection to life 
and property. So we are informed by a con- 
tempiiriineoiiR Kohilla writer iHajiiltok, 
Jiuton/ of thf JioiilltiM). In 177:i the nawab 
of Oudh, who was also hereditnrj- vaEir of 
tbo empire, made a treaty with the Kuhillax, 
by which he covenanted to cxjifl the Mah- 
rutlos from their country on cou-^ideration <if 
a payment of money, lie executed hi- part 
of the engagement, yxpt-lling the Mahrattas 
by the middle of the ensuingycar, Hethen 
called on the Kohilla sirdars to pay the dum 
promised ; though ninny of them were willing, 
the ' protector' of the state — a sort of regent, 
for the minor chieftain — refuM^d. 1'hen thu 
nawab, having obtained sanction from the 
emperor, prepared to foreclose, by occupying 
the province, end called upon "the Dntish 
govemmpnt of Calcutta to supply a brigade, 
as required by the trpaly of ulliauce of 1704 
(Mill, HUtonj, with Wilson's notes, bk. v. 
ch. t. ; al!w> IUmu.tos, y/w/wi-y of the Jio- 
Ailfai). Ilai^tings at unce complied, llie 
Hohillan were overthrown after a aliari) en- 
gagement ; some severities were uwd, and the 
fightingmenwcre deported acTOsathe Ganges. 



^ 




ilsstio^ inini*?<luilely wrote to tli« ririti*h 
resilient at the nawab's eajnp, urging htm to 
tise his Lofluence to mitigate all h&rihneisa, 
and to impTv«8 on the nawab that English- 
men disapproved ' with abhorrence of erery 
species of uihumanit}: and oppression.' Mill 
nghtly condemn the home AiithnhtieK. who 
found fault with the action of Hastings and 
ret mode no amends to the Uohi1Is.s. ' Tbev 
were so mufJi the leoA excusable thancLeVazir 
and Mr. Ilastingf that theae actors in the ficene 
denied its injustice' (Mill, bk. t. ch. i.) 

In 1773 llutin^ recorded on the minutes 
of council a paper on the principles of crimi- 
nal jtutice, OB applied to the offence of dacoity 
or gang robbery, then and long aft*?r prera- 
lent in Bengal. In 1771 the same sufcgect 
again attracted Hastings's att«ntion, and the 
employment of special nat ire magi»t rate's wa^ 
the plan which commended !t«elf to him. He 
maile the complaint, often repeated aincchis 
time, that one cause of the evil vras ' the 
regiilarity and precision which has been in- 
troduced in our courts of justice.' He de- 
sired to reTert to the old sammury process of 
nstire government*, who were wont to trace 
the landholders by whom the dacoits were 
maiutaiued. and to proceed against them. 
He WBjt thus for introducing the non-regulft- 
lion ^'8tem even before the regulations tncm- 
Belvec. 

Btiforo Ihew matters had been finally dis- 
posed of, a great change UMik place iu Itengnl 
politics. Uptoiluit time the council in Cal- 
cutta had conf^istcd of a large number of offi- 
cials holding other po^ts. and the executive 
r^wtir had been abflorlxMl by a rommitte** nf 
hhree, of which the governor wa." iiresideut 
■-irith a casting vote. It was thus tliat (.'live 
liad been able tocorrvoiittlieutipalatahle re- 
, forms ofhis second ailminiflrntioii [see Cr.T\T3]. 
|£ut now, in virtue of the ' Itegulating Act/ 
r a new council of fi vi was created, three being 
sent out from home. Hustings was declared 
governor gen jral with a nrngiuficent salarv, 
but with only a single vote in the council. 
At the same time a supreme court of justice 
■was established with vague general powen*; 
■and the four judges sent out lo hnid that 
court., whose cnii'f wom T"Iiistin^,'s's old sphool- 
fellow Impey, were, like the new couurillors, 
entini strangers to India, The court, being 
composed nf prof(?e*ieil Inwycrfi, did its duty in 
a technical and jealcuiH H]»irit. The council- 
lor!?, bis^m-rl BgaiuNt Atifi^lo-Indians, acted as 
. if hounil by u mutual pleflge to oppose Hast- 
ings and Kichtrd Barwell fq. v.], hie old col- 
league and pr^^^nt supporter. Muhamad 
[Haxa and Nand Kumar and some of the civil 
I iervants were ready to supply inlormation. 
From secret hints the new councillors evolved 



an impated fabric of corruption. SpecUie 
charges of corruption were sent in by Nanc] 
Kumar tothecouQcilon 11 March, ifosttiigs 
and Barwell withdrew from the council, when; 
theirhonour was being di&cuss«^, and in April 
1776brotight a case of cont^pLracy against the 
nija and two Englishmen named Fowke ; 
I lasting» having al ready writ r^n home threat- 
ening to realign if not ^upjwrted by the direc* 
tore. But before the cuispiracy c«««* could 
ripen for decision Nand Kumar was suddenly 
arrested fti May 1775) on a charge of forgery 
instiMted by a native, with some appearancW 
of aoMstance from Ihirhom, tlie odvocate- 
generaL Whether Durham woA realty theinsti- 
gator.andfif so, was act ing under instruct ionfl 
from Hastings, or whether he was prompted 
to assist tlio complainant by a desire to ex- 
tort money out of a rich man whom he knewr 
to be in trouble, is among the unsearchable 
secrets of history. The quarrel bctin-Fen th« 
raja and the o»tea»ibIe complainant wa.4, iu 
any case, one of several vears' standing, and 
an action Iiad been twice part heard — iu 
which the all-ged forgen- had been used — 
Ijeforetheestablishmeut of the supreme court. 
Nand Kumar was committed by two jupt ices 
on the d«y of hit* arre&t ; the grand jury found 
a true bill', iind the trial commenced on 8 June 
and last nil more than a we(>k. Oti the morn- 
ing of It) June the raja was found guilty sjid 
sentenced to death, all the judges concurring.

tion of the ' Hi.*tor\' of India.' UMA) 

Mncaulay's famous account of those pro- 
ceeding:* is that of a reckless advocate, not 
of a judicial critic. There is no attempt at 
serious demonstration either that Hastings 
believed Nand Kumur innocent, or that be 
inspired the prosecution t'or forgerj-. An at- 
tentive examinttiion of the fucta will show 
that the chief justice was only one of a num- 
ber of perHona who wore satisfied that N&ndl 
Kumar deserved his fote. .\mong those jier- 
snns wrt^ the native historian of the time. 
There is no evidence that Hiistioga thought 
otherwise, or that he had any ground for in- 
terfering to prevent the law from taking its

course, if indeed he bod the reqaisito power. | 
It is true that Ilii9ting8,affaiiist aitfOvmiuUg- ' 
ramt.and und«r protest, had lately employed 
Nund Kumar. H-? had also provided for the 
Bon. But. he had never conwaleii the di»- 
rru9t of Nnnd Kumar wliich he shartrd with 1 
most Anglo-Indian vtntevmen of the fjeriod. | 
lie had lately declared hi* enmity ujieuly, ! 
jind inittituted a chari^eof eonsjjiracy in which 
Nand Kumar vra» included. Immediately 
<ipon the openinf^ uf the new supreme court, 
and before the in»titution of the con«pimry 
charge, a solicitnr named Driver had rmewed 
an application, made in the mayor's court, 
pravinfT for the delivery of papers, amoii|^ 
whicli was an in-itrument on which hitt client 
pr*>pos<'^l to prosecute Nand Kumar. (The 
petition IS dated in January 1775, and refera 
Co a former petition of March 1774.) About 
the aame timo Hastings finally broke with 
Naud Kumar, and forbade bis appearaoco at 
Government House. On 1 1 Slarcb Nand 
Kumar jireferred to the rouncil his charges of 
corruption a^iinst Hii«tiii(^8, wlio was called 
upon to aiittwer to tlie chargex, and n>fiiscd 
to sjipear nt the bar of hia owii council. In 
April Nand Kumar and his Oj-sociates were 
' committed fur conspiracy, avowedly on the 
jttotion of the povernor-gt-neral. Meanwhile 
the proceedingfi of Driver's client had been 
institut(.>d, an«l Nand Kumor was, in May, 
cotnmitti'd on a charjife of forgery by two 
magistrates, who havi^ never been shown to 
have been creatures of Hasting I^Stbphes, 
fil/ftry Iff NftnTtimnr, ch. ix.) Thes«; facts are 
tyvrapalilile with the very simple suj)pusition 
that the prosecuiiun was underiaken on pri- 
vale pounds, thouf^h not without knowledge 
^ihat the state of public affairs was opportune. 
Meanwhile Hastings was busy with Indian 
law. The peculiar code of the Suunites or 
. orthodox Muslims hud already been made 
into adigest under the Emperor Aurungzeb. 
Bnt the Hindu law was only to be found 
acattere*lovera number of Sanscrittext-lMMiks 
of various date and uuthurily. Hastings 
therefore invited the U-8t known experts to 
Calcutta, and charged them with the com- 
jiijntinn of a volume of which he afterwards 
4-aiiSKl an Knglish translation to be made bv 
Naihnniel Dra:«6cyHalhed \i.v.1,i*endinK »u- 
ranced sheets to Lord Manst^'lu in England. 
In 1775 Hastings began a further attempt 
to moke gang-robbery the subject of 6[)ecial 
le};i»lation. Hut theopposition in btHCOiincil 
object ed to the punishment of t he harbourers, 
and the scheme collap^d. Xor did he ne- 
glect any fair opportunity of extending the 
jnfluenc** of his employers, or of adding to 
the knowledge of jieiglibouriiig nations — 
xneaj^euough — which Kogl ishn) en then pos* 



sessed. A small war with hill tribes on 
his northern frontier opened commitnications 
with the Teshu lama of Thibet, and a diplo- 
matic mistnon was sent into that remoiH 
and still mysterious region. It was heach'd 
by Georoe Bogle [q.v.J, and a detailed ac- 
count of the proceedings and reeults will bo 
found in Morkham's 'Xarrativea/ London, 
ld7ts. 

Meanwhile the revenue raised for the com- 
pany in Calcutta showed but little improve- 
ment. Hastings had stopn^d some of the 
drains on it; thetribiit^jio tacem|>erorceased 
when he threw aside Itntish protect ion, and 
the districts which had been assigned to him 
wore transferred, for a considerution, to the 
uawab of (liidh. iSome militjirv reductions 
were efleoted, not without friction, and th» 
allowance to the titular ruler of Bengal waa \ 
also diminished. An attempt wag made to 
swell the receipts by giving the company a 
benelifial interest in ihe sale of opium to the 
Chinese. The production and distribution 
of this dmg hati Iwun held as a peniuisite by 
the members of the Patiia council; it was 
now farmed for a term of years, and the pro- 
ceeds credited in the puhfic accounts. The ] 
conduct of Hastings in this matter becams 
the subject of one of the charges afterwards 
brought against him ; but it at once ajmeared 
that he had suppresst'd an abuse to the ad- 
vantage of the state. Moreover, the court 
of directors lisd covered his act by their 
exprufrS nppnihation. 

In spite of all eftorts the finances continued 
to ebb. The court made urgent demands for 
remittances: the exche<fuer in Calcutta was 
ao drained thot the governor-genera! could 
not cash his own salary hills, and had to 
borrow monev for his persona] expenses. The 
minor prettidcncioa were equally destitute. 
At Sural the Bombay government cnde(i«j 
voured to raise money by lending troop* to"^ 
Kagoba, a claimant to the office of (»eshwa. t 
The niaiority in the Calcutta council cnn- 
celle<l the arrangement, and although Ka- 
goba 's cause wiu-* espoused by the court of 
directors, Hastiuifs was unable to enforce tho 
policy of his employent. In .September 177tl, 
however, Monson,one of the hostile memberaj 
ofcouncU.diefl.andllasting^ibtained tempo*] 
rarj'po^r, of which bereaved Xa take ad- 
vantage. He began by removing the jobbing 
provincial councils, and putting the inleninl 
administration under agents who might Iw 
trusted to do their beet for the land revenue. 
Early in 1777 he proceeded to record his inten- 
tion to ' mako the liritish nation paramount t n 
India, and to accept of the aNegian^of stich 
of ''lur neighbours*as shall sue to be enlisted

On 8 Auir. 1777 llastincrs married hia 
baron-^ss. a divon-e having- l»een at last ob- 
tained by Imhotl" in the ( ierman courts. The 
lady was by this time thirty years of ajfe, and 
is describeil by ladies of the time as elegant 
and prac^^ful, dressing^with taste rather than 
fashion, and wearing a profusion of beautiful 
Qubum curls. She had been living in pood 
r»^pute under the protection of her mother 
since her arrival in Calcutta, and the mar- 
riaire do.'< not seem to luive caused any 
sc-.indal. NothiniT can be mory» characteristic 
tU:in the quiet tenacity with which Hastings 
cnrrit'd on this stnin^re and pmtmcted love 
ntVair; indeed it onlv ceased with his Ion;; 
life. 

IWinff now in a position to n^ali^e his own 
plans. Hastings gave up all thoui;htsof retir- 
ing ; Francis found. Indeed. an ally in Wheler, 
the new councillor sent out fmrn home; but 
the cninmander-in-chief. Sir Kyn' l\xite, was 
usually amenable to reason, and Harwell con- 
tinued to vote with the govtTnor-general. 
In 177s Hastings was able to resume the 
support of Uagoba's cause, and also to o]»cnite 
against the French settlements in India. His 
niL-a-iin's were not at lirst successful. The 
IJonib:iv pf)vernmont was disunited and in- 
ertioient, and no aid could be obtained from 
^Madras. Colonel Le-^lie. who commanded 
the expeditionary fonv, died bef ire anything 
couM be done. His successor. Colonel Thomas 
( ioddard <{. v.~. however, so<in showed himself 
^vortlly oi'ihe occasion, defeating the armies 
of Sindhia an<l Holkar. and occupying tho 
capital of ftujral. I'Vancis in vain opposed 
the gDvernor-general's measures, and com- 
ilaints were raised at home against the war. 
iJut it was easily shown that Hastings had 



I 



not been the aggressor, but was acting on th& 
defensive with nis usual far-sighted resolu- 
tion. From the evidence recorded by Grant 
J Duff (ffutt. of the MaAratftu), it is clear thflt 
I the confederacy between the Mahrattaa and 
Uaidar, which Hastings checked, had for its. 
! object the expulsion of British power from 
' the whole of AsiiL 

A French officer was with the enemy at 
' Poona ; a French contingent accompanied 
I Haidar in his simultaneous attack on the Car- 
natic. and took part in the defeat and capturv 
of Colonel Itaillie's force. The nizam's army 
■ was officered by Frenchmen, and Louis XVI 
' had been persuaded to league himself against 
England with the king of Spain and the re- 
! volted colonies in North America. In India 
' the strufiTfrle was almost desperate. Limited 
as were his resources, Hastings struck in all 
I directions, and stnick hard. Sindhia's for- 
tified capital, Gwalior, was taken by escalade 
I in August 1780, and the subsequent suc- 
- cesses of Colonel Camac dissolved the con- 
! federacy. Hastings took the daring step of 
' suspending the governor of Madras, by which 
' he strained the constitution, but saved the 
; presidency ; at the same time he reinforced 
it with money and with men under Coote. 
, The nizam was pacified, vacillation on the 
part of the Bhonsla of Berar was arrested, 
and that wavering chief converted into a 
I staunch friend. | Hastings laid down the 
maxim, never ti_be overlooked in Eastern 
, affairs, that 'acts which proclaim confidence 
and a determined spirit in the hour of ad- 
' versity are the surest means of retrieving it/ 
I By pushing in eveir direction what his op- 
I ponents called ' frantic military exploits ' (but 
in which really very little blood was spilt),. 
he kept his own provinces free from war, and 
in the remaining possessions of the company 
restored a falling cause. In spite of some 
misfortunes on land, and some trouble at sen 
arising from the ability of the BailH de- 
Suffren, the French admiral, Hastings drove 
Haidar out of the Camotic. In 1782 Haidar 
died ; and the treat vofSalbai, concluded early 
next year with his eon, Tippu Sultan, laid 
the foundation of British ."supremacy in India,, 
and detined the position of other states. 
Li The British governor-general was already 
taking the place of the effete Delhi empin*' 
in regard to all those states which depended 
up<»n British protection. Even the princes of 
the Ilajputs, the most ancient ruling houses 
in the world, had always paid tribute to that 
eiii])ire. The Mahrattas similarly held to 
ransom their own tributary and protected 
state*. It was in accordance with native 
practice and opinion that the British govern- 
ment in Calcutta should do likewise. The^

aly 17yi he proceeded to Benares lo eu- 
I his orders, but Iho raja resisted, some 
lftA!ing**gwpoys were cut up in the street, 
lie him-«elf had to make nis retreat to

ngh colled on the mother of the nawab 
Ihidh. with whom ho had an understand- 
Z. to .wnd men to hit nid, and brok»> into 
en revolt. But his revolt was soon quellwl. 





At one time indeed his forcoa were -within 
a few miles of Chunar ; but they effectisl 
nothing, and before the end of September 
thoy hftd been routed and their leader had 
fallen back on liij* la^t ><troiighoM. Hero he 
was captured on 10 Nor. ITHl, his treasun^ 
being distributed among the company's troops. 
Cbait Siugh was deposed, and hia xemindari 
bestowed upon his nephew (see Aflmflfuv, 
Hoorkee, \f<-->3). ^ 

The nownb-vaiir wns in debt to tho com- 
pany, and Hastings, whilt; yet at Chunar, 
pn:>i>o»ied an inter\'iew ou the subject. Th»? 
nawab came to see him there, antf doubt Ivss 
the cmversntion include*! some mention of 
the Hupport which the nawiib's mother hfld 
given to Chait Singh. The nawah declared 
that hi; could not meol his engagements tn 
the company; hta mother niid hi8 gnind- 
mother find appropriated a largo istate in 
land ; they had also converted to their own 
UHe a large ar<Mimu!ation of tn^asurc left by 
the late nawab. These acts of flpniiation hail 
been sanctioned by the majority of the Cal- 
cutta council. It was nnw proiKised, whether 
by thenawab or by Hantings naa never been 
determined, that partly to raise money anil 
partlyby way of punishment, the flofssnould 
be resumed, and tho treasure applied to the 
exigencies of the Oudh stnto ngreeubly ta 
the law of Islam. The dowagers replied 
with ^ihrill rnfusal, on which the nawab sur- 
rounded their luuse with a guard, put fome 
of their servants into light ircms, and, by a 
duress which ha.>i been much exaggerated, 
enforced his demand. Hastings Lad re- 
turned to Calcutta, but he intimated his dis- 
approval of all severity as soon as the ro- 
aident reported what had Iteen done. Thif? 
was the great case of tho * robbery of th& 
Ondh hegums,* which, indeed, waa'no rob- 
bery nt nil. But Hastingij is not altogether 
frw! of nisponsibilitv for anvihing that may 
liave been done amiss in thij* mritter. The 
land and money whirh were taken from tho 
dowagers hud been held l>v ihem fur some 
time, although perhaps without any legal 
right ; their possession, too. had been gua- 
ranteed by the British government, though 
BgaiuBt the opinion of tlie out-voled governor. 
From the comhtions of the case Hastings 
must have been aware that tho dowagers 
and their men would not disgoiye without 
reeistancf*. He wa«, however, ni-s*'rvpd by 
lhi> resident, an oHicinl who had been furreil 
npon him and in whom he never confidtNl 
(for im imnurtial account of these inins- 
actions sec Wilson, note to Mii.t., bk. v. e.

During that year (1782) Hastings had been

replied in h tono of (lijtnififd rfiuionstmnct;

defnurving of every kind of approval and sup- 
fion. 

In 1783 naAtingR, having ^ent liU wife 
to Knf^Iand, proceeded to Lucknow, where 
(under orders from home) he restored some 
of the downpors' landeil poiwesnions. Here 
aho ho met the Delhi crown prince, a fugi- 
tive from court, whomhe pen^uaded to re- 
Jura to his father, with an escort and a«- 
tances of cynipathy- In November 17H4 he 
returned to Calcuttn, and soon after laid 
down his office. Pn^viou^ly he held a general 
parudunfthelWngalarmy, just returned from 
the southern war. SworJs of honour were

of his arlminifttration ho founded the Asiatic 
Society of Ilengal, Sir W. Jones [q. v,| being 
tho first president. l<'or the extension of 
Miialim culture, Hastings founded, jwrtly at 
his own charge, the Calcutta Madri.sa, «til] 
existing and carrying out its founder's de- 
aign. The last days of his residence in India 
were devoted toitchemes of financial rt^form, 
10 the receipt of farewell addresses, and the 
winding up of private concerns; letters of 
fiirewcll had also to be aent to tlie native 
chiefs. On 3 Fob. 1785 he dined at the Pow- 
der Works, ill company with a large number 
of hisfrieudd, andin the afternoon stepjted on 
boitr<l his barge in order to emburk on board

He points out that he had been charged with 
too much responsibility, and protests against 
the injusticeof thoaccusationsimputed. His 
maximf as he declares, has been ' to do what 



he knew was requisite to the public safetr,! 
though he should doom hi« life to legal for-* 
feiture or his name to infamy.' 

Hastings landed in England on 13 JunsJ 
17J^j, and attended the next drawing-roon 
with his wife. His friends, privately anji 
publicly, were numerous and InfluentioL lal 
companv with Mrs. Hastings he visited some! 
of the English wateriuff- places, and looked! 
about for a country residence. He had saved ; 
S(),000/., no exorbitant fortune after a dis-J 
tinguishe^l service oft hirty-five yea rsinlndisfi 
and his first thought was to rea]i»e hm old! 
dream of investing some of his money in thfti 
purchase of the old family manor and hau.<ia| 
at Do^lesford. But the then possessor waal 
not dLsposed to sell. Hastings thercibrttl 
settled for the time at Windsor, with a town 
house in M impole Street. 

Meanwhile r'runcis, ever since his return, 
had been inHam'mg the vivtd imagination of 
Durkc, not at its most temperate stage just^ 
theji, and alwnys ready to take fire at fha^| 
thought of wrung done to ancient social^l 
fabrics. Burke was in no mood for impar- 
tiality. His conduct excited the oppoKition 
of Lord Teignmouth, who was not bv anjffl 
means a wholesal e supporter of Hastings. At | 
Macaulay remarket!, wtmtever Burke's 'saga- 
city descried was refracted and disooloured 
by his passions and his imagination ' (' LifsH 
of Pitt,' in Unqfcl. Brit) Nor waa BurkaH 
likely to forget the fate of the India Bill oT 
17H:t, which caused the fall of the coalition 
ministry. To crown all came the malignant 
promptingaof Fmuci.<t. It was ho]>eless 10 at- 
tempt to convince Burke that in India the 
gitcial fabric had been ruined by the most com- 
plete and sanguinary anarchy. India was 
coming within the range of jiartv iwlilics.* 
After the failure of the India BiU of Rurka-j 
and Fox in 17S3, Pitt in 1764 passed an act j 
which was in force for nearly three-quarter* of ] 
acentury. Buthewasobligedtoconciliatethe 
country by the profeMion of an anxious dcoir^ 
to restrain and punish offenccK committed ia i 
the admiutstrutiunof Indian aHutrs. ICugliah- f 
men were anxious to apply a remedy afler ] 
the dis4irder had ceaoea. The really abomi- 1 
uable time in India had been from about 17d7 ' 
to 1767, the close of Clivo's second adminiift- 
t ration, and the establishment of the new 
system bad made it most unlikely ever to 
return. But the court of directors and its 
servants were unpopular, and Burke's attacks 
on Hastings met with !<ympathy amLmg thaJ 
whigs, while they encountered but faint n»<r| 
sistauce from the tories. The fir^t attach on \ 
the ground of the Rohilla war, waa, indeed, 
defeated by the government. In regard to 
Chait Singh also, Pitt and Uundasheld thotTd

in the ^uso of Commons, lie made ex-

ffcimaelf— were carried away for the moment. 
But Hastings bore thr* storm bravely, and it 
ma in this very period that the purchase of 
Payleaford was at lust negotinled. For the 
old house and G*iO acres of land he paid

Hastings always had supporters. Fanny 
Bumey and Hannah Mure were on his tiid**. 
John NiohoUs* [q. v.], author of the ' Parlia- 
mentary Recollections/ said tlrnt he 'thought 
him with the highest veneration.' Lord 
Tetgnmouth, once an opponent, could only 
Lccount for what was g>»ing on by denying 
IjJnrke'fi Hunily. Tho trial occupied the court 
for tbirty-tivu days in 1788 ; it was resumed 
I April iifthf following year. laJunelTdO 
diss<)liiiioD took place, and was pleaded in 
»r of further proceedings, but the pica was 
BTcrruled. In 1791 the court investigated 
: cliarges of peRK>nal corruption, and then 
stiaga made his linal defence. The next 
fcwo years were given to the arguments nf 
ErouncU ; in 1794 the managers replied to the 
fd^fcnc-e. Xumherlc»'!> addrew4e»< and testi-

The second Bonares address, of 1788, dt*- 
clared that Uastings, by appointing tho mo^t 
distinguished of the Brahmans aud Musal- 
mans to preside over their afiairs, had * ren- 
dered the inhabitants much happier tlun 
they were during the admini^lratiuii of Cluiit

which, after testifying to the consideration 
that he always showed to the heads of nativu 
society, added that * he was not covetous of 
other men's money, and was not optin to cor- 
ruption. No war arose in his time ' (they woru 
only thinking of their own province); 'no was

address and deportment very distant from 
pride, and still more from familiarity.' 

The House of Ivonis proceeded to debate 
on their judgment in 1795. Of persoual cot' 
ruption I IajHtiitg.-<wiiA unanimously acquitted; 
hin manner of lif(\ undwhat Macaulny justly 
colls ' Iiis honourable poverty,' left his jud|{p8 
no alternative. As to the charges arising 
nut of thi-> Benares aOtiir, it was found by a 
largi> majority that he was not only justined 
by the circumstances in claiming aid from a 
feudatory, but that the puuishnient of that 
feudatorv's contumacy was neilher excessive 
nor vini^ictive. In the eaj*e of the (ludU 
dowagerB it was held that there was no evi- 
di'uce either of greed «r of malignity, and 
that the treatment of the ladies was partly 
due to their own conduct, and was excused 
by the exigencies of the time. Thurlow and 
Bishop Horslcy wore strongly in Hastings's 
favour. The chief uf the hostile judges was 
Lord Loughborough, the chancellor, who bad 
to pronounce the acquittal of the accused on 
I'ii April 1795. 

Tim trial, which occupied 145 days, ox- 
tendiiiE over seven years and three montlis, 
cost Hastings 70,tXk>/., and he was left, as 
he himself said, without the means of sub- 
sistence. But th^ cbipi»any came generously 
to his aid. He receive<l nddreasee of eon- 
grutulatiufi on \iU acquittal from various

K^Tinps after a singularly prolonged Indian 
lif^. To ^ny thnt Jfa^tinpa was a scrupulous 
politician accordinu' to modem ideas would be

of the law in removing the unmanageable

Kr*kine in elo<)uent t«rms («e f JtTR!fET, , 
^arthand Jtfport, pp. 47 90). Mill luw 
some pointed remarks showing how he was 
impre8S«l in spite of a strong prejudice: 

• riiL'^tinpi,' he says, * was ptactnl in diflicul- 
ties uud acted on by temptations such as few 
public men have been called on to overcome. 
... No man. probably, who ever had a great 
share in the government of the world* had hia 

£ahUc conduct 90 completely explored and 
tid open to view. ... If we had the same 
ftdrantage with respect to other men, . . . 
lew of them w6uld be found whose character 
woubl present a higher claim to indulgence 
than his* (Hht. iv. ;«I7-H|. 

riastingh's passions were alway;* well con- 
trolled. His wife adored him. He was ad- 
mired by such men as Thurlow and Johnson, 
l>T Ilalhed, and nltimatelv by Teignmouth. 
H»? is not known ever to have lost a friend. 

* His gencpjsity was unbounded in desire, 
and did not alway.^ calculate his means of 
indulgitti; it. His own private interest was 
!r>«t in his regard for the public welfare '

to hi«pf?ntlent^«-i under euflVring. and absence 
of viudii'tive lanifuagt' nlKiut IiIh enemies. 

Like other distinguished mon, Hastings 
owed much to the combination of apparently 
incompatible qualities. A bold dr>famtr he 
poMe««eH almost unequalled executive aliility 
and practical good sense. Though not always 
fastidious as lo the means by wliich he bene- 
fited his eraployeni, be never showwl any Tul- 
gar gr>?ed on his own account, and hia lavish , 
expenditure of money was accompanied by a 1 
total indifference to peritonei advantage or 
display. fJentle in temper ond constant in 
*Aection, ho could be combative, and even 



f47 Hastings 

truculent on occasion ; determined and reso- 
lute, he yet knew how to give up his own 
purpose when it was not to be had without 
paying too dear. Brought up in a bad school , 
exposed to most dougerous influences, he was 
guilty of nothing personally dishonouring, 
even when he compromised bis reputation. 
But in tlic contemporarv criticism of public 
men allowance is randy made for shades of 
charactor and peculiarities of circumstance. 
At theend of the eighteenth cent nrv- English- 
men were awakening to a aense of the duties 
of humanity, and felt that the position and 
the doings nf I'Inglish traders and officials ia 
the East were not always to 1m* defended. Tha 
outcry of 17^5 and the unanimous condem- 
nation of Hastiu^s by both sidnsof the House 
of Commons were the first outcome of this 
feeling. Although partly due to political 
motives, and further tainted by insincere rhe- 
toric and extravagant hyperbole, the im- 
peachment was something more than mere 
hyiiocrisy op hysterics. 

Tlieru are two portraits of HastingE in the

HATCH, EDWIX, D.D. (183&-I880), 
<lieologtan, was bom at Derby on \ Sejit. 
1835, of nonconformist parents. In l&44lnfl 
&mily moved to Btmungham, and he entered 
King Edward's School, at that time under 
Dr. (afterwarda Bishop) Prince Lee. Hatch 
fa^&D on the modem side, but his promise 
■WM discovered, and he was Ironsferred to 
tKe clast^ical department, where he rspidly 
>se until ho left with an exhibition for rem- 
ike College, Oxford, in IHTkH. Shortly 
'on? this be had joined the church of Eng- 
land, through tbo influence of Dr. J.C.Miller. 
At Oxford he moxcd in a stimulating society, 
of which Edward Bume-Jones, the artist, 
an old schoolfellow, William Morris, and 
Swinburne, the poets, were prominent mom- 
(lers. II atchwBsalreadycontribuling largely 
t3 magazines end reviews when he took his 







degree, with second class honours In lit. hum.^ 
at theend of 1857. Afterworkingwith zeal 
in an east-end parish in Ixindon, be waa ap- 

Jioiuted in IWiJ) pmfeswir of cla-ssie* at Trinity 
College, Toronto. This he held till lBti2, 
when ho aeecptod the rectorship of the high 
school of Quebec. Hera he mMried. Ilis 
work at Quebec loft a lasting impresaion ; 
bat in 1867 he returned to Oxford to bo- 
come rice-principal of St. Mary Hall, an 
ofiice which he resigned under pressure 
of oilier duties in 18HA. Along with his 
teaching iit St. Mary Hall he took privatti 
pupils, and actively aban>d in the practical 
work of the university. It was through him 
that the 'Official Gazette' waa started in 
1870, and he was its first editor. Not much 
later he brought out the first edition of the 
'Student's Handbook to the University,' and 
edited a translation of Aristotle's 'Ethics* 
in 1879, begun by his brother, the Itev.W. M. 
Hatch (rf. 1879). In 188-the wasoppointed 
Rceretiiry to the boards of faculties. Mean- 
wliili; he was colltM^ting materials for the 
work which he had planned iu theology. The 
first-fruits of these labours appeared in a 
series of important articles (* Ifoly Orders,' 
'Ordination,' ' Priest') in vol. ii. of the* Dic- 
tionary of Christian Antiquities* in 1880. In 
the wime year he delivered the Bamplou lec- 
tures on 'The Orgsnieatton of the Early 
Christian Churches,' published in the year 
following. The bold and Qriginat views put 
forwai*d in these lectures aroused considerable 
conlruversy, in which Hatch himself took 
little part. In Scotland and Germany there- 
cognition which the lectures received was 
even greater than in England, In 1883 the 
imiversitvof Edinburgh conferred on the au- 
l hor I ho distinction of an honorary D. D,,wbi1u 
the eminent theologian, Dr. Adolph Hamuck, 
him.setf tratudated the tec^turiis into ( jerman. 
In 1H87 Hatch brought out a little volume, 
' Tho Growth of Church Institutions,' in- 
tcndiHl to be tho pioneer of a larger work, 
continuing the Bomjiton lectures, and dealing 
oomprehennvcly with the whole subject. 

Erom 1882 to 1884 Hatch held the office 
of Grinfield lecturer on the Septuagint, 
onother branch of study to which he had de- 
vot ed himself. The substance of the lectures 
was published in * Essays in Biblical Greek,' 
188f>. As the basis for a renewed examina- 
tion of tho 'Biblical Vocabulary,' he had 
long been at work on an elaborote * Concord- 
ance to the LXX and Hexapla,* which will 
be published jMwthumously. Other New

nddrcgises to a natural daughter of I^rd 
Hobert Manners, who waft lo receive a dower 
of 1,(KX>/. if she married with her fatlier's 
approbation. Lord Itobert, deceived by Hat- 
field's demeanour, a»;ented tn his proposal of 
m&rringit. and presented him at his weddin^f 
with 1,500/. Hatfield shortly went up to 
London, described himself oa a near relation 
of the Hutiand family, and lived in luxury. 
When hii* money was spent he disappeanKi, 
abandoning his wife (who soon died broken- 
liearted) and thrue dniight«rs. 

After several years' iil>s«nce Hatfield re- 
tumeil to London in 1782. Uiscanserwascub 
sliort by his committal to the King's Bench 
prison for a debt of ICO/. Here by his arts of 
lyiiiL'Aiid boasting- he induced a clergyman to 
lay his case before the Duke of Rutland, who 
gem-rouftlv sent lum 200/. and secured his 
release. When the duke became lord-Iieu- 
tenant of Ireland in I7H4, HntHeld wtnl to 
Dublin, and by impudiinlly claiming^ rela- 
tionship with the viceroy lived for a time 
on credit. He was sfKin committt^d to thu 
Munthnlsea, when the duke again paid hta 
deblrt and sent him out of the country. He 
continued his career of imposture until 
arrested for an hotel bill at {^carborou^ on 
2'> April I7i>2. He remained in the bcar- 
borougli gaol for more than seven yearn, but 
evenlufllly managed lo excite the pity of 
Miss Nation, a DeTonsbire lady, who lived 
with her mother in a house oppositetho pri- 
son. She paid Lis debts, and, though she 
is said never to have spoken to him till he 
quitted the gaol, married him next morn- 
ing (^14 Sept. IWKJ). The pair went to Dul- 
vert(Ki in Somersetshire, where by fraudu- 
lent representations Hatfield obtained both 
money and credit. He lived in London once 
again in magnitlcent style, and even can- 
vassed (^ueenborough, hoping, no doubt, to 
get OS a member of parliament immunity 
from arresr, but, nrcswd by his creditors, 
he procured a few hundred pounds and dis- 
siipeared, leaving his second wife and her 
young child in Somersetahire entirely depen- 
dent on cliarity. In August 1801 he arrived 
at K««wJck in CumlH-rland, in a handsome 
carriiige, and assunnnl the nnme of the Hon. 
Alexander Augustus Hopf.M.P. for Linlith- 
gow, brother of the Karl of Hnjwloun. He 
spent his time in excursions, and on n visit 
to Grasmerc became acquainted with a Liver- 
pool gentleman named Crump, whose name 
and credit be emploved when in want of 
money. By boldly franking letters in his 
assumed name he silenced all suspictan in 
the neighbourhood. An intrigue with a lady 
of fortune came to nothing. But the re-

llatfield's relations with the court cau<e«I 
him to be of^en absent firom his diiKese. ( hi 
1 7 July 1345, before his consecration, the kir.^ 
when going to Flanders appointed him one of 
the councillors of his son Liontrl. who was 
left as regent (Rymer, iii. pt. i.oUt. In th«r 
autumn of the same year, when the pope wrote 
to Edward urgint; him against making war 
"with France, he directed Hatfield at the same 
time to use his advocacy with the king( Mi'Kl- 
MUTH, p. 176). Doubtless he counted upon 
the support of so recently favoured a nominee. 
But the pope's statement of the case was too 
plainly dictated in the French interest. and his 
arguments were of no avail (lA. pp. 177-8^^». 
liatfield accompanied Edward to Franc*', 

11 JuIt 1340 (i&. p. 199; fr. le Baker, p. 79). 
and after the battle of Cr^cy he performed 
the funeral serv'ice for the king of Bohemia, 
27 Ang. ((*. p. So"). He then attended Ed- 
vard on his march to Calais, where he was 
on 6 Sept. ( Rtmer, iii. pt. i. 90), and probably 
remained for some time longer. In July the 
prior of Durham sent him intelligence of the 
threatened Scottish invasion, and in October 
informed him of the battle between DuHiam 
and Bearpark (since known as that of Nevill's 
Cross) on 17 Oct. {Letterg fiwn Isorthfm 
JtegitUrtj ccxii. ccxLii. pp. 385-9, where the ' 
letters are printed). On 10 Dec. the bishop 
waa summoned with other northern lords to 
attend a council to take measures touching . 
the war with Scotland (Rtxer, iii.pt. i. 97), 
and between 1360 and 1367 he was placed at 
leaat six times upon commissions to treat for , 
peMa with that country and for the ransom '

there was a^n ariskof di-iturbancefrom the

field was commanded to stay at the border 
and to take military precautions (ih. pt. ii. 
936). Tlie same onler is repealed 20 July 
1377 {ib. \\. 11). 

Not long after the accession of Richard II 
IlatHt^ld's health showe<l signs of failing. In 
a letter of 15 Dec. 1379 or i;J^Ohe entreated 
the monks of Durham to pray for his re- 
covery (Hift. Ihtnrlm. Uript. /re*, -Vpp- 
cxxviii. pp. cxlv f), and as he grew weaker 
he became the more instant in almsgiving. 
He died at his manorhous*> of .\ldfonle. near 
liondon (probably Old Ford, then in tho 
parish of Stepney, Middlesex*), on 8 May 
l^iSl. after a pontificate of just six-and-thirtv 
years (Chambre, pp. 138 t". and.Vpp. cxxxii. 

Ccxlviii). His remains were bnuight to 
urham, and were burit^l in the tomb which 
he had prepared beneath his own thn^ne in 
the cathedral. But the funeral did not take 
place without an unpleasant dispute between 
the prior and the bishop's exwutorsas to the 
former's perquisites {ib. pp. 141 f. and App. 
cxxxii, cxxxiii). 

Hatfield is described by Cliambro as a 
magnificent man and venerable to look upon, 
given to hospitality and lai^ in his charit ies. 
To the monks of Durham ho showed himself 
kindly and generous, and he was as strcuuouA

143 f.) at Kexby, in the immedialu neigh- 
bourhtiod of York (Hyuer, iii. pt. i. 389). 
In 1H74 Aloxander Nevill, aremlencon of

injunction had to \)c repeated on U7 Dec. 1U77 
(WluclKi*, Concilia, iii. \'2i). 

Uatflold'n muniticence has its record in his 
buildingB at Durhiitn, wlien^ ho (■^«^t'ted part

in Loudon (^Umamdri:, p. l^H), and founded 
« Carmelite house ai Northallerton (Goijwiy, 
ii. y30). In Oxford ho was a benefactor of 
the college which had existed for the use of 
monks from Durliam since the last years of 
<he thirteenth centun*, and who»e building* 
stood on the ^i^e of tlie present Trinity Tol- 
lege. The wchemi' which Bishop Kichard of 
]{ury had drawn out for the foundation of a 
regularly established college was elaborated 
by his succoRsor, who provided for the mnin- 
tenance of eight monks and eight secular 
Atudents. The foundatirin, however, was not 
■completed until after Hatfield's death (ttee 
CuuiBBB, pp. las, 140, aud II. C. Maxwell 



Lite. Jlist. of the t'titc. of Ojford, iS-^.pp. 
105, 1511). A* other ei-idcnco of the bishop's 
wealth it may l>e nott-d that he lent Kin^ 
Edward two thouisand marks in or before 
1370 (Utmeh, iii. pt. ii. b03, M)l). and that 
according to his will he lent Alice Ferrers 
one thousand marks {^Tfntamenta S>oracni^ 
Kia, Surtees Society, 1^3ii, p. 121). In tliin 
will he al«Q made l>equci(ti«, among others 
to his godjton, Thomas of Wot>dstock, and 
to his nephew, Johu-ropham. But most 
of his gifts were made during hjs lifetime. 
There is an inventory of his gxwdt in the first 
volume of * WiiU and Inventories of the 
Northern Counties' (Surtees Society, 18351^ 
pp. 30-8 ; aud other particular? of his be-

is preserved at Durham, is said by Mr. Itaine 
to be of small general interest, consisting 
mainly of the ' formal record of the working

•Saunders of 1 larrinf^ton in the same county, 
■wa* bom at Holdenby in 1540. The family 
va3 old, ond claimed, though on doubtful 
evidence, to be of Norman lineojrc. Ilatton 
wa« entered at St. Mary Hall, Oxford, pro- 
bably about 15£5, OS a gentleman-commoner. 
He took no degree, and in November 1559 
was admitted to the society of the Inner 
Temple, wh»!re,accoTdingtoFulIer( U'orthie^, 
'Northamptonshire'), ho ' mther took a iMiit 
than a meal' of le^l study. There is no

of the game ( Dugdale, Oriy. pp. 150 etse^.) 
Tall, liand.-«ome, and t hn>ughout his lifu a very 
f^raceful dancer, he attracttid the attention of 



the queen at a subsequent masque at court, 
and became one of her gentlemen iH^nttioners 
in June 15«U (Camdks, Ann. Eliz. ed. 1037,

days he displayed his prowess in a tourney 
held before the queen at Westminster, ia 
honour of the marriiige of Ambrose Dudler, 
earl of W'nrwick, with Lady Anne Russell, 
and he jnuntiH] again before the queen at the 
same place in Slay 1571 (Stetpe, Chekt^ p. 
ia;j; }i\cuQi^, Pn»ge.Eliz.\.-SiG). Elixabeth 
gave him in 15>Fj5the abbey and demesne lands 
ofSulbv,nnminally in exchange for his manor 
of Holdenby, which, however, wasat rhe^amo 
time leased tohimforfortyyears.and wostwo 
years later reconveyed to him in fee; she ap- 
pointed him(2yJuly 15fl8) keeperof her parka 
nt KIthnm in Kent and Home in Surrey; 
tihe grunted him the reversion of the otiictt 
of (pieeifs remembrancer in the exchu<|uer 
( 1571>,and estates in Yorkahire.Dorsetshire, 
Ilerofordahire, the reversion of thu monas- 
tery De Pratis in Leicestershire, the steward- 
ship of the manors of Weudlingborough in 
Northamptonshire, and the wardship of three 
minora (1571-2). She also made huu one of 
the gentlemen of her privy chamber, though 
at what date is uncertain, and captain of her 
bodygiiani (1572). It wha the custom for 
the courtiers to make the qut^-n new-year's 
]irt>sentfl, for which they rweived in return 
gifts of silver plate varying from fifty to two 
hundred ounces in weight. Ilatton, however, 
always received four hundred ounces' weighc 
of tfiis plate. 

Hutton's relations with the queen wera 
very intimate. When ho fidl serioosly iU 
in 157!^, she visited him daily, was pensiTO 
when he left for Spa to recover his health, 
and sent her own physician, Julio, with him 
( IIakkr, Aor/Anwi/>^onj»A/rf, i. 195; Stkypb,

her while on this journey are written in a veir 
citravagiint style ; c.g". * My spirit, I feel,

you is a heaven, but to lack you is more than

Ilatton a lease of Kly Place ior Iwenty-ono

authentic version, threatening to 'unfrock*

bich he wrote a raas», still exist mg in mnnii-

v.hurcli(St. Nieholii(*l in Chapel StretJt, Liver- 
pool. It it* chnmclerislic of the irri^pressihlo 
animal ^jiirits which in afVer years made him 
universally popular that he should haveven- 
red to play 'All round my hat' (a slreet- 
ng of the time), of i^urso carefully dis- 
oised, when competing for one of thc«<! aj»- 
pointments. In his youth he also nofiuired 
some experience as an actor, playing with 
saocves the part of Dluesliin in Mack Shep- 
wird' at the Littlt; Liver 'I'heDtre in Church 
Street. It wa" as nn nrtor thnt he Hret ap- 
iiean^d in London. A playbill wnspn'served 
bv him, containing his name a^i pl>i£;ng 
Jlarco (tic) in ' Orhello'witU Macn-ady and 
"*Tjarle» Kean at iJruri' Lane, ;.'0 Dec. l8U:i. 
the following year he wrote some piano- 
rte piec*?«, among them six impromptus 
^ich attained considerable success. 

r>rury Ijine Theatre Hatton obtained 
I fiwt musical engagement of importance, 
ting the choruses in the season of Eng- 1 





Ush nperms given from I Oct. 1K42 to 3 April 
1^43. On '2o Feb. in the latter year hisoiva 
operetta, 'l^ueen of the Thames ' (words by 
K. Fitihall), was given aucceasfully six timef. 
It contains souio pretty nnmbers, and ibe 
madrigal, ''ITie merry bridal Ixdls,' is a gixxl 
deal b^^rttcr tluiu mott modern attempts t>> 
rcprtxluco the ancient form. This shows 
that Hatton must have studied mufiic in 
earnest, and that he thoroughly nppa'ciated 
the tinest English music. Among the com- 
pany engaged for the oj>eratic performances 
was Staudigl, who enroiiragva Hatton to 
write another opera. * Pascal IVuno/ to a 
libretto by W. Kitxball. This was tnuie- 
lated. mainly by Staudigl himself, into Ger- 
man, and was brought out at Vienna on 
'J March 1S4-4 for the benefit of .Staudigl, who 
sang the princijial part. The first act was 
very successful, but the other two were less 
favourably received, owing in great part to 
the failure of one of the singers, a Mile. Dichl. 
No part of tlm ojveru was publi.shed, with the 
single exct'ption of a song, ' He\eiige/ sung 
bv Staudigl, which became very popular in 
England. The manuscript score of the second 
act, the only other portion extant, shows 
much originality and dramaticpowcr, as well 
08 knowledge of sta^rc cft'ect. While staring 
in Vienna to supervise the production of the 
opera, I lattun was the guest uf Staudigl, who 
intritduced him to the Concordia Society. 
His pianofortt* nlnving, more especially of 
Bach 8 fugues, whicli he played from mf roory , 
attractwl much attention. Slennwhilo he 
took advantage of the opportunities for ad- 
vanced study of music, taking counterpoint 
lessons from Sochter, one of the most learned 
theorists of the time. On his return to Eng- 
land Hntton published severul vocal trios 
and a set of eighteen songs to wortls by T. 
Oliphant, They wore furnished with (lermau 
tran^slat ions, and publisheil under the jiaeu- 
donym of * Cr.apeli,' the genitive plural of a 
Hungarian wortl for 'hat.' These and some 
other songs publi^llel1 about the same lime 
havo been considered by some critics to be 
not unworthy of Schubert himself. The great 
Germflu models obviously inlluencfd their 
structure. Hatton |H»rhapH never attained a 
Rtjcond time the beauty and sincerity of ex- 
pri'ssion revealed in 'lo Antheo.' 

The popularity of his songs (their number 
is computed at nearly thret! hundred in all) 
was partly due to the fact that Hatton had 
acquired practical experience both a» a singer 
and a pianist. At the Hereford feiitival of 
\B46 he appeanMl as a vocalint, and played 
a concerto by Mozart. In the same vear he 
begun a series of tours with Sivori, Vieux- 
temps, and other celebrated performers. In

yuars (probably lSo3-l)) conductor and ar- 
ranger of the music under Chnrle;* Kcan's 
management at tbe rrincess's TheaMT, but 
it is diHirult to diaentflogle his own coro- 
prtHitioMH from the works of other composers 
armngtMl by him during this period for tlieii- 
trirnl purpoees. The music to' Ilourv VII I,' 
' Uichiird II,'*Sardanopalus' and *The Wiii- 
tor'g Talc" ia undoubtedly hy him; the lirst 
and third seta of compositions were pub- 
linhed, and contain snme vigomns and ell'ec- 
tivo numbers. It is iirnbuble that few of 
the "plays prodnce<l by K'-an were uUo^jether 
■without (iriginal work by Hatton. In many 
of the Shakespenrean performances he akif- 
fullv adapted old Kiigbsh airs. 

Meanwhile the concert tours continued, 
Tn the rnnrw! of one of the.'te jcinnieys Hnt- 
ton's popular smig, M*ood-hye, Hweetheart,

Association 213 Nov. ISO^i; the libretto was 
founded upon Italfvv's ' Vnl d'Andorre;' 
tlie music is not in Kattou's iiost vein. In 
iHfifl he contributed several Riuigs to Watts 
Pbilli]ii*'« play, * The Huguenot Soldier,' and 
in the wime year went again to America. 
The 'Itidind Concorta'at St. .Tampa's Hall, 
London, were bt^un in this year, and for 
the first nine seawins Hnttnn lield the po«t 
of accompanist and conductor. In October 
1875 he paid a first visit to Stuttgart, which 
he frequently rpvis.ited afterwards. There 
he wrote an oratorio entitled 'Hexelciah/ 
which, wh«n given at the Crystal Palace on 



15 Ilec. IH77, failed to pleat« critical muM-l 
cians. Though much of the choral writuijf ' 
was justly cenaurod on ac4*ount of its imita- 
tions uf Handel ond Mendelssohn, yet tracea 
could still be seen of his old tai^te for conn*-, 
terpnint and the severer forms of muaic, * 
Among his later compositions were a can- | 
tiita to wonis by Milton (manuscript"), a.| 
trio for pinno and st-rings. published in f-ier^J

That llntton'a enduring fume as an Eng- 
lish musician is based on eo flight a founda- 
tion in in>t due to any shortcomings in uatural 
^ifts, but to the irresistible inHucnce of hU 
animal hpirils and bis lack of artistic eamest- 
new. His part-songs, like ' When erening^a 
twilight,' remain among the most popular 
works of this kind; genuine humour is di»- 

rihijed in such songs as * Simon the Cel- 
aper; ' and oiu* at least, 'To Anihea,' has be-

HAVELL, WI LLT AM (1 7P2-1 ftr.7), 
landscape-liai titer, was the son of a drawing- 
tna*ler at Heading, who kept n small shop to 
eke out his narrow means. AVilliam, born 
on 9 Feb. 1782,wii» one of fourteen children. 
In early life hi spent some time sketching 
in Wales, but it was somewhat ogninst his 
fatherV will that be ndoptfMl art. as a profes- 
sion. In 1H04 he si>nt his first contributions 
to the Koval Academy — a view of Carnarvon 
Cast.lo and another of the valley of Nant 
Francon in the name county. In the aarne 
Tear he lH>came one of the foundation mcin- 
Vtw of the {now Koyal) Society of Painters 
in Water-colours. In 1807 he was in West- 
moreland, where he stayed about two years, 
at iidying mountain ?cenory. In 1813 he se- 
ceded from the Water-colour Society, but 
under a then existing rule continued to con- 
trihuto to their exhibitions, as well tw to the 
Iloyol Academy, where bo exhibited in 1812 
and 1811. In IBUi he was engagwl nn a 
work called * I'icrnresque Views ond Charac- 
t'Tistie Scenery of Hriiish Villas,' Ac, when 
ho went with Lord Amliersl's embassy to 
China. In consequence of a quarrel the en- 
gagement was soon broken off, and he retired 
to India in 1817, where he stayed till 1825, 
pursuing his profession with protit. On his 



return he reioined the Water-colour 8ociety|i 
but he fonnil that bis place in public favourJ 
was filled by younger men, and afler a wbila] 
be ceased to contribute to their exhibition* ' 
and took to painting in oiU, He visited 
Florence, Rome, and Naples in 1827, and 
became a conslant contributor to thu Roval ■ 
Academy, bis subjects being chiefly Italian, I 
but sometimes from Wnles, Westmoreland, ™ 
and China. lie also exhibited at the BritUh 
Institution and Suffolk Street. Although 
his works were of great merit nnd distin- 
guished by pure and delicate colour, ibey ^ 
failed to attract the public, oud. bavins- lost H 
his savings by the failure of an Indian bank, 1 
he became a piin«ionpr on tlie Turner Fund. 
He died, after some years of rleelining health, 
at Kensington on Iti Dec. 1857. Ilavcll wo» , 
one of the best of the earlier paintcnt in ■ 
water-colour, and did much to advance tho-i 
art : and his pictures in oil, though neglected. I 
during his liti',have recently risen greatly in 
estimution. There isatinedrswing of Windsor 
by him in the South Kens«ingt')n Museum, 
besides a few good examjili^ uf his earlier 
drawings in ^Valos and Westmoreland. 

Thrtnr of Ila veil's brothers obtained a Cttr-1 
tain success in the profession of art. Geoi^ J 
Ilavcll(^. 1839?) was an animal painter, and |

Outram, who was detained at Bu^hir^ bv

Then occurred one of the most memorab

On 19 Sept. the bridi;e over tlie Gang

treets and lanes alive with th« ent'iiiy's lire, 
Ihe column reacbed a bridge under (he lee of

the loss of many men the brid^u wax liur- 
moimted, and The forco, rQuntted, halted 
under cover near t he r'hattariManzil. Uutram 
strongly Hdviiied that, os dnrknes» was com- 
ing on, the ChattarMunxil should bcnccupied 
until the rear guanl could join Lhuin. Itiit 
Hav^ock was df^terinined topuali on, and to 
tb« cn^at joy of the beainffed he nained the 
reatdenry dint uiffht. On the 20th a strong 
parly tcoi A(>itt out to bring in the rear guard, 
the sick and the wounded. This was aocom- 
plisbed with eonajderahle loafl, ond then the 
command was assumed by I Outntni. It was 
»i>on evident that the relieving force hud 
arrived only to reinforce the Rurrison, for, 
owing to lack of transport to carry away the 
flick and wounded and the women and chil- 
dren, no moVBment could bt* made, and tluty 
rervr themselves bt'sieged. During tbesDven

sages ndating to the (jundriviiim nnd Tri-

philo.sophy and science of bis time. The pni- 
lixity of the poem mokes it, iw n whole, un- 
readable. The allegorical detail is excessive 
and often obscure ; the rhythm is nearly al- 
ways irregular, nnd often very harsh. Never- 
thelewi there are many descriptive stanzas 
which chann by their sininlicity ond cheer- 
ful view of life. From an mstorical (Kiint of 
view, Hawes marks a distinct advance on Lyd^l 
gate. The ' Pft^^etyme ' is indeed a link be-' 
tween 'TheCanterburyToles' and 'TheFaery 
Queen.' Mrs. Browning justly regarded 
Ilawt'8 ay one of the inspln-rs of Spenser, and

the Bcheme. Hawes freed himself from the 
coneem l>y the coni)ni<^i'iun of an act of bank- 
ruptcy, and afterwards set up as a publisher 
on hia own account in the Strand. In 1H22

the Kngli(«h Opera House nt the I^yceum 
Theatre, Hawes, who was Arnold's iuliinate 
friend, gave him much assistance. It is eaid 
that the production of 'Her Vreischtitz' in 
July 1^24 was mainlT due to Hawes. Ho 
certainly wroto several aongs which were, ac- 
cording to the barbarous fashion of the day, 
interpolated in Weber's score. It has been 
fit-atea (Ubovb, Dictmwry) that he was 
xnoflical director for several years ; but neither 
the contemiKjrBrv accounts of the perform- 
BXtcea nor the a<)verti:iement5 mention him 
except a« odnpting foreign workf to the Eng-

drawn up in 1570. The statutes were dis- 
pleasing to the puritan party at Cambridge,

monthtf before the Berwick was able to drop 

down the river, hd<I then with a crewlarffely 

c«imp«i8e4l, a^ Hawke wrote to the admiralty 

on :i3 Aug., of 'very little, weakly, puny 

fellow^^lhat have never been at sea, and can 

be of little or no service.* The vasga^ out 

to the Mediterranean lrie<l sucti a chip's 

company severely. On 27 Oct., shortly afler 

leaving Gibraltar, Uawke rt-ported that I'JS 

of hi« working^ men wore eick with fever or 

scurfy, and falling down by tens and twenties 

every day. ' A great number of them,' he 

wrule, ' ore lately come from the East Indies, 

and others are raw men picked up by the 

pn'i^-gnngR in I^ondnn,' Towards the middle 

of NoTt'mber the fU'rwiek arrived at I'ort

that Iliiwkehad »een n fleet since he had been 

with Ogle in the Edinburgh; nor, though 

the war had been going on for upwanU of 

foar years, had he yet seen a hhot Hrcil 

kin anger. <^n H Feb-, when the allied Meet 

Iput to sea from T<>uIon, tlie English flent 

»l«o getting under way to fallow them, the 

[jWrwick was in the squadron under thecom- 

Inand of it4».r-admiral Tiowley, which led

fter^i but the English centre, opposed to

I ziietlinte ontagonist , the S|>aniBh Neptuno, out 

I of the line, and was left without an opponent. 

[ Astrm the Poder, by herself, was keeping nt

j tradictory signals. Ilawke, on Lis own re- 

VOL. HV, 



spnnwbility, wore out of the line, ran down 
to the Poder, and engaged her within pistol- 
shot. His Hrst broadside is said to have 
killed twenty-seven men, and to have dis- 
mounted Beveral of her lowtT-deckguns. In 
twenty minutifs she wa.«i di)imaAte<T; after a 
brave but unavailing defence she Ktrnek her 
colours, and was taken possession of by a party 
from the Berwick under Mr. Lloyd, her first 
lieutenant. They were scarcely well on board 
her when it was seen that the French bad 
tacked and were standing towttrds them ; the 
English fleet had alM> tacked, and was re! iriiig 
to the northward. The Berwick and her prize 
were left alone, and Hawke. hailing IJoyd 
to return to his ship, was*, without waiting 
for him to do f>o, obliginl tn make sail af^er 
the fleet. Lloyd, after an extraordinary and 
adventumuK cruise in a boat full of SfuiniRh 
prisonerB, succeedetl in getting on board the 
Koyal (-tak, while the Poder, with the prixe 
crew on board, was retaken by the French, 
The next morning Lloyd rejoined liis ship, 
and in the afternoon was sent, to give Howley 
anaccouut of bis proceeding)^, and to tiequaint 
him that seventeen men bad been left on hoanl 
the Poder. Kowlev prfmiised to 'endeavour 
to save the prize and give Captain Ilawkc the 
honour of carrying her to M inurca,* and apoke 
in high terms of TIawke'a conduct. He di- 
rected the Berwick and Diamond to go down 
tn the Poder, then some distance osteni of 
the allied fleet, in company with a French 
ship, which, on the approach of tho English, 
left licr to her fate. Tne Essex, however, by 
Mathew/s order, had anticipated Rowley's 
Hhip5, and net tlie Poder on fire, iniicli to 
HawkfVannovance. He wrote to Mathewa 
complaining tbat another ehould have bettn 
ordered to bum the prixe whirh ho took, and 
asking him to onier 1 'nptain Norris and his 
oflicers to rest ort' the colours and things which 
they had tukrn out of her. Norris, however, 
kept the trophies; and a few months later fled 
into Spain to escape a probable sentence of 
death for cowardice. 

For the next eighteen months Hawke con- 
tinued attached tn the Mediterranean fleet, 
though oAen on detached command at (li- 
braliar, ofl" Tadii, or on the coast of Qonoa. 
The iH^rvice is now chiefly noticeable becanae ' 
the severe drill accuittomed him to the rou- 
tine of Bquadrons. On 3 Aug. 1745 he was 
moved by Rowley, then commander-in-chief, 
into theS ept une, wit h orders* to return to Eng- 
land in charge of the home wanl t rade. He ar- 
rive<l in the iM>und on I'O Sept., and for the 
next year was on shore, amiarently not in very 
good health. In June 1746 he waa summoned 
aa a witness on the trials of Lestocb and 
Mathews, but did not attend. On 30 March

1747 bo was apiMinted to the M&rs, but before 
she was ready for Eea be wafi advanced to flag 
rank ou 15 July. The very l«rg»> pronuilion 
thon made was specially extended inonlt-r to 
include Boscaweii [5eo Axson,(teoroe, Louu 
Aasosl, and for this pumitit' t*evt'ral most re- 
spectable oflifiers were retiH'd. llawke'sname 
■waa sTill little kticnTi tothoincrompetent ad- 
nimiRtratiou then at the admiraltr, and after 
ilie defltli of his uncle Bladen, in 1^16, he had 
no political interest. It waa determined to 
poM him over. The king, however, who bad 
taken a elronfl interest in the diecussions con- 
cerning the battle of Toulon, is said to have 
declared that * be would not have Kawki* 
" yellowed ; " ' be waa aw^ordlngly promoted 
to be rear-admiral of the white. A week 
later be boisted bis flag on board the Glou- 
, outer, and on 3 Aug. was appointed second 
in command of the fleet in the Channel under 
Vice-admiral Sir Peter Warren. 

Warren wa^ in inditferent health, and pro- 
posed that the 84[uadron bhould go out under 
the command of Ilawke, hojiin^' that by the 
time it retume<l bis hcallli would he re- 
established. Anson full verv uneasy ahtJut 
sending the fleet to sea ' under so youn^j an 
ofticer, and with grf*at reluctance yielded to 
the proposal. During the next fortnight 
Warrens heaUh got worse, end on 6 Sept. 
he was obliged tu resign the command. <Jn 
the 8th ordon* were aent to Hawke to take 
the inde{>endent command and cruise be- 
tween llshaut and Caj* Finisterre. These 
orders he rlid not receive for nearly a mouth ; 
but bis original instructions had taught him 
that the first object of his cruise wa« to inttT- 
eept a French convoy expected to aail from 
Rochelle. Spanish caleons too were spoken of 
as liknly to he on the way to Cadiz* and the 
temptation to send part of bis force lo look 
for ihem must Iiave been greftt. Ho decided, 
however, that treoaure-huntiug might wait, 
that to cnuh the enemy In arm>^ was his first 
duty, and he kept bis ships together. On ' 
12 Oct. he was broad ofl* Uochetle, nearly j 
midway between Uahant and Finisterre, in 
a • situation/ he wrote, * very well calculated i 
for intercepting both the outward and home- 
ward bound trade of the enemy.' Two days ; 
later bis cSbrtfi were rewarded by his outlv- | 
ing vessels signalling the Fnmeh fleet in 
Kight. He had then with him fourteen ships 
of the lin*', mostly of 60 guns, but two were 
of 70 and two of only fiO. His own tiagsbip, 
the Devonshire, was of 66 guns, though theiie 
were heavier than usiml. bhe had been built 
I an i^)-gun ship, but had proved so crank 
that she had been cut down 1o n two-decker. 
The euemy when aigbted was reported to ' 
have IweWe large shipa; three of tliem were, J 



however, merchantmen ; there were re«ll| 
only nine ships of war. Of these one was of 
no guns, and anothf^r of tiO; the rest 
Ifirg'^r, including three of 74 guns and oaei 
80. The difl'erence of force was thuB nothmg ^ 
like what ia shown bv the mere numlwrs of 
the ships ; still the f'reuch admiral, &1. de 
r£tenduere, conceived that the odds againrt 
him were too great, and Uawke, seeing thot 
be was int^'Dt only on favouring the escape 
of the convoy, 'made the signal for thewholti 
squadron to chase.' The result was decisive; 
as the English ships came up with the rear 
of the enemy they engaged ; and so, succe*- 
i^ively cn-eping on towards the van, took tins 
whole line exoi^pt the two leading aliips, the 
one of 80 and the other of 74 guufi, which, 
owing chieflv, it wai thoug:hc. to a blunder 
of Captain jt^ox of the Kent, made good 
their escape. The Content, the 60-gun ship, 
was with the convoy, which also got away, 
though Hawke, by promptly sending out the 
news to the West Indies, insured the cap- 
ture of the greater part of it. The action, 
by far the most imiK)rlnnt and most brilliant 
or the war, liad ine misfortune of coming 
after Anson's of 3 May; and the acknow- 
ledgments of the admiralty, of which An^^n 
was a member, were almost tmgracious. For 
a victory over an enemy of barely one-third 
of hi-i strength Anson had been made a peer. 
Huwke, for a vict<try na divisive over a nearly 
i*f]ual force, was merelv made a knighl of the 
Hath, the reward which had been given to Sir 
IVter Worren, Anson's second in command. 
On the return of the fleol with the priiea 
to Portsmouth, Warren resumed the con»- 
mond, and during the rest of the war TTawke 
continued with him, for the most part cruis- 
ing in the Bay of Biscay. On 12 May 174S 
he waa advanced to be vic^-admiraL of the 
blue. Hh had alreadv, in Dwember 1747, 
been elected member of parliament for Ports- 
month by the interest of llie Duke of Bedford, 
then iirstlord of the admiralty. Furnearly 
thirty years Hawke continued to represent 
Portsmouth, but ho rarely spoke in the house. 
ITiere is not even any record of bis having 
taken part in the debates of 174B on the new 
arficlc* of war and the reform of naval disci- 
pline. On 26 July 1748 he succeeded Warren 
in command of the home tleet, a charge which 
he held continuously during the next four 
years, for the mn-it part at Portsmouth, but 
during !7rjO in the Thames and Medway. 
Of this service the notices are scanty. Pro- 
bably Hawke's chief work was in a>isisting 
or in advising Anson in the important changes 
which be introduced. As commander-in- 
chief at Portsmouth he was president of the 
remarkable courta-martiol on Rcar-admind. J

On tbe approach of winter the greater part 
of the fleet was recalled fn»in thi* Moditrr- 
ranean, a small f..rce only remaining under 
Saunder*. Hawke arrtTe<l in F.ngland on 
14 Jan. 1757. On 24 FeK he wa* pnnuoli'd 
to be admiral of the blue. His health was 
much sliaken. both by the worry of hii* ctim- 
mand and also by the lo*s of his wife, to 
whom be ap[»ean( to have lieen *incerely at- 
1ache<),nDd who had ilied during his absence 
on :JS Oct. \7h^^. Ctintem^Kirury gxisjtip said 
that a coolness opnroaching to a nuarrel 
sprang un between liim nnd Pitt. Hawke, 
it was fuud, publielv contradictiMl I^itt's stat^ 
inents in favour of Byng, and ri'fused to ac- 
cept Pitt's disapproval of some incidenta of 
Ilia late command (BrBROwa, pp. 271, 376). 
The details are untrustworthy, but the rela- 
tions bet ween the two men seem toliave been 
fur fnim conlial. When the new government 
was formed in Juno, with Pitt as its Wrtual 
head. An.wn was reappointed fir»t lor<l of tbe 
admiralty, but was unabU', notwithstanding 
liis wish, to give Hawke a seat at the hoard 
(i(^. p. 277). In August, however, when Pitt 
was devisinc the expedition apiinst KikIic- 
fort, it wft> Hawke who was selucted for tbe 
command. The credit of the appoint mcnl baa 
been generally attributed to Pitt. It would 
seem to be more probably due to Anson. 

Pitt had leame-d that on the land side 
Rttebefort was practically undefended, and 
that tbe arsenal and dockyan) might bo de> 
stToyed hy a comparatively small force. Some 
SL'ven thousand troops un^er the command of 
Sir John ^tordauut [q. v.] were told oil' for 
this seraice, and Hawke was to command 
the covering fleet. On 6 Aug. the two com- 
manders-in-chief reccive<l tlieir instructions, 
Hawke's Wing 'to net in conjunction nnd 
to civnporale with Sir John Mordaunt inthn 
execution of the services pn;»cribed to him,' 
wliile Mordaunt was directed Mo attempt, 
IL4 far us sliall be found practic^ible, a ae- 
scent on the French coast at or near Kocbe- 
fort ; to attack, if practicable, . . . tliat plac«,* 
and to destroy its docks, shipping, mogajtinos, 
and arsenals. 

Within a week from the date of these in- 
structions tbe fleet and army were ready, but 
the navy boanl had not provided a suiricimt 
number of transports; and in rumedviug tlu? 
mittcalculntion nearly a month sl!]iiK>d away.

tManfl of Aix was at once reduced by the 
Ma^n&ntmeand Barfleur, but it was found tbat 
the reneeadec, who bad be^n shipped as pilots, 
were quit« ignorant of tbo place. A sound- 
ing party, under the immediate command of 
R^r-admiral Brodrick, wms sent to make in- 
dependent ohniervalion. It returned late on 
the evening of the 24th, and on tlie 25th a 
council of war wan held. From Krodrick's 
report it appeared that the troope might be 
landed on a hard sandy beach in Cbatelailloa 
Bay, tbat the transports might anchor about 
a mile and a half from the ^borc, the ships of 
war not within two miles. The general did 
not consider this encouraging; the ships, he 
B&id, at this distance could not cover the 
landing, nor a retreat if the army should 
Kustain any reverse ; ond such a reverse was 
extremely probable. The enemy, he argued, 
vu well prepannl ; and matt likely had a 
lAwearmy waiting for them beliind thes&nd- 
hilTs of Chatflaillon Bay. llawke confined 
himself to laying before the council the possi- 
bility of putting the men on shore; this, he 
said, he wa* rvady to do ; as to the further 
operations, it was for the soldiers to decide. 
But the soldieni, after much hesitation, de- 
termined to do nothing. Un the 29th llawke 
sent tbem a formal message that if they had 
no military oporations to propose be would 
take the Hett home. The general assented. 
The fleet left, the anchorage on 1 (Jet., and 
arrived at Spitbead on the 0th. 

A very angry public feeling was excited 
bv the news of the failure. It was Oiwertod 
that there were secret political reasonw for it ; 
thai Uochefort hml been sparnd a» an equi- 
valent for the sparing of Hanover, and iis 
the price of more favourable lernia in the 
convention of Kloster-Seven (Potter to Pitt, 
1 1 Oct. 1767 : Correspondence of the Erirl of 
VhatJiam, i. 277 ; Chesterpieli). Lettern to 
Aw AVm. 10, 2ttOct.. 4, 1*0 Nov. ; Horace Wal- 
pole to Conway, 13 Oct.) It was, however, 
on Monlaunt, not on Hawke, thot indigna- 
tion or suspicion fell (RiTRROWS,p. 331), and 
on 22 Oct. Huwke again put to sen to look 
for the homeward-btmnd fleet of Du Boi« du 
la Mothe. He fortunately missed it, so that 
it carried into Brest the terrible pestilence 
which raged there instead of at Portsmouth 
during the winter { P^'iwoNSiBit-DBapjER- 
xukBSSi Trait i fur lef Mniadies deM Gent de 
Mer, p. 07,2nd edit. 1780). He returaw! to 
Spitbead on 15 1>pc. On 12 March 1756 he 
again sailed, on informotion that the I'rench 
were preparing a large convoy for .\mericn. 
In the beginning of April bo learned that it 
was putting to .'tea; on the 3rd he chased it. 
into!&t. Martin's in the Isle of H^; on the 4th 
he looked Into Basque Iloade. Inside the Isle 



of Aix were five ships of the line, whic 
threw overboard their guns and stores, ao 
escaped on to the mud flats ; the next dayj 
with the assistance of boats from Rocbefort^ 
they got into the river, llawke had all alon 
vainly urged on the admiralty his want 
bomb-vessels and tireships ; without the** ' 
he could do nothing more than cut adrift tbr 
buoyt* with which the flying enemy htdj 
marke<l their anchors and guns, and ^i^riil I 
working party on shore at Aix to destroy tba 
new fortiticatious In progress. He rutarnfllj 
to Portsmouth, leaving a small sqiiadrobi^ 
under Captain Keppel of the Torbay, 
blockade the convoy in St. Martin's." Ill 
had eflectually prevented the sailing of tli 
French expe<liiion for many montlis, but wa 
discontented at having been unable to d^ 
stn>y il altoffelher. The admimlty also were 
discontented; they knew tliat the fault wa^B 
their own, and naturally vented their HplettoH 
on llawke, whose return was coldly acknow- 
ledged. Four days' leave was curtly refused 
him. On 10 May he received an order to p"t 1 
the squadron designed for a secret expcditioik| 
under the command of Captain Howe [»« 
How E,IIicH.\aD, Earl Howe]. Howe waited^ 
on Hawke with their lordabips' letter about 
four o'clock in the afternoon, and at seven 
o'clock llawke repliwl in an out.<?poken and 
angry Iftter, iiroteeting against the condue 
of the admirulty towanls him during the pa 
twelve mouibs, more especially now in a| 
pointing Howe over his head, and fuially 1 
ijuainting them that he had struck his flag. 
Tlie adraimlty were astounded, but Tlowke 
could not be spared. They sent for him to 
attend the board: exphtnationsand asprirances 
were given and accepted, and on 17 May he 
resumed biscommand. HowewoAstilltocom- 
mand the secret, expedition ; and, toprfvent ^ 
the difticulty of his corresponding uirectlyw 
with the admiralty, independent of thecora*V 
mander-in-cbief, Anson himself was to hoist 
his flag, Hawke going with hira 09 second in 
cnmniand. Tlii.« he would seem to have meant 
US a format acknowlfdgmenl that he accepted 
the admiralty's explanations ; and a montb 
later (18 June) he applied to Anson to be sent 
home, on the pretext of a severe fe\'erish cold^ 
a complaint he was very subject to. He did. 
not again hoi t!t his flag till 13 May 1750, wheu 
he took command of the wostem squadron. 
It woa known that the Frenrii were contem- 

{ilflt ing an invasion of England, or more pro- 
inbly of Ireland ; that troops wore muatered 
inthelSIorhilian; flnt-bottomed boat* for their 
rnl^HIlo^^ were collected at Havre, and every 
exertion was to be made, by uniting the Tou- 
lon and Brest squadrons, to obtain command 
of the Channel. In t he Mediterranean Boh-

navy board his right to do so, 

November set in with very btid weather. 
After struggling against a Irementlous w[>st- 
erly gale for three days the fleet put into 
Torbay on the 9Ui, went out on the IJth, 
but on the IHth was again driven m. The 
Kaniilli'-^. whi(>h bad carried liawke's flag 
through t hL> summer and autumn, wad in Detnl 
of a thornugh refit. Hawke shifted hid flan 
to the ICuyal (Ieorgc,and put to ska on the 1 4th. 



On the 17th he had news that the French fleet 
was at Bea. lie was then ofl* I'shant, and 
concluded that it must have gone round to 
embark the trwjps in Morbiban. The wind, 
blowing hard at 6.S.K.,drovehim to the west- 
word ; it was still adverse through the IHth 
aitd liHh. On the morning of the '2fil)x, being 
then some forty miles to the west of lielle 
Isle, the Maidstone frigate made the signal 
for K^ing a fleet. No time was lost in the 
pednnlicevolutionsfiivoured by tho'Fighting; 
Instructions.' The enemy was making on. 
Hawke made the signal ' for the seven ships 
nearest them to cha^<, and draw into a line 
of iNittle ahead of the Koval Oeorge. and en- 
deavour to stop them till the rest of the 
squadron i^hould come up, who wen* also to 
form as thev chased.' Happily tli" French 
admiral, >farshal de (Vullan>t, hud be4*n 
tempted out of his course in chase of I be 
frigate squadron which, under Captain Duff", 
had for montlis i>ast been keeping watch on 
the Morbihon coast. He had not time to 
recover bin lost ground and reach the shel- 
tering rocks and shoals of Quiberon Bay be- 
fore the headmost ebiiw of Hawke's irregu- 
larly formed line were on him. ' All the 
day (in Hawke's own words) we had very 
fresh gales at N.W. and AV.N.W. with heovy 
squaljk Monsieur Conflans kept going on 
under such sail as all his squadron could 
carrr and at the same time keep t^jgether, 
while we crowded after him with every sail 
our !>>hip!t could bear. At half-past '2 p.m., 
the fire beginnine ahead, I made the signal 
for engaging. We were then to the ."onth- 
ward of iietle lale ; and Ihe French admiral 
headmost soon after led round the CartlinaU, 
while hisrear was in action. About 4 o'clock 
the Formidable struclc, and a IJttle after the 
Th6s^ and Superbe were sunk. Aboulo ihn 
H^roK struck and came to an anchor, but it 
blowing hard, no boat could be sent on board 
her. Night was now come, and being on a 
part of the coast among ir<liindH and Kbnulit, 
of which we were lotally ignorant, without 
a pilot, as was the greatest part of the squa- 
dron, and blowing hard on a lee shore, I made 
the signal to anchor.' 

During the night, and the early morning 
of the 2l5t, two of the English ships, Ke«>- 
liition and Es8ex, struck on the hour, and 
were irrecoverably lost, though most of their 
men were saved. The French flagship, So- 
let) Itoyal, ran asliniv near Croiaic and w^s 
burnt ; so also the H6nM,wbicb, after vlriking, 
wtts endeavouring to escape. Besides lhe,vt 
five ships, taken or destroyed, seven, throw-

up the Vilaine, whi>re four of them broke 
their bocks. The other nine escaped to the

h»» wrote to Geary on hia return from hi?! 
Slimmer cruise: ' 1 wish the Admirnlly would 
e>ee what was done in former times ; it would 
make them act with more jiroprietv Iwith for

gain great honour, and wiU be the means to 
make the action decisive.' He died at Sun- 
bury on 17 Oct, 1781. * Lord llttwke is dead/ 
wrote Walptde to Mann on the IHth, 'and 
does not seem to have betpieathed his mantle 
I Bnybo<ly.' He was buried by the side of 
1 the church of North Slouebam in 
KOipshire. where a monumental inscriptiou

lighter, Catherine, who is described as* the 
fnrt of her fhtliera life in his declining 
»/ he left one son, Martin Uladen, who 
cceeded to the title as second baron. 
, Hnwke's actions have very commonly been 
oken of OS a series of luippy ehancce, re- 
ed OS tuch by the government which 



dealt out lU rewards with a sparing hand. 
A close 6iud\* of his career proves tlmt his 
succcises wov due rather to cure and fore- 
sight. Alike OS captain and udmiral his 
anxiety for the health and comfort of his men 
was incessant. Far in advance of lua n^, he 
arrived, however iiuperfcctly, at a solution of 
the difficult ])robIem of how to keep a ship's 
company healthy ; and his discipline B|v- 
pean* tn have beon strict, but kindly. Jlis 
reproof of impiety, his care for the happiness 
of his men, his manly decision anJ digniOed 
deportment worked a rapid though silent re- 
formation through the whole fleet {Gent. 
.yfdf;. ISJ2.pt. i.p. 811). Whether ho was a 
causummate tactician must be. to some ex- 
tent, matter of opinion. Unlike Nelson, he 
left no theoretical exjtoaition of his views; 
bi;i leaching was purtdy practical, but his 
two great actions were fought — in defiance of 
the 'Fighting In<itruct ions' — on the soundest 
tactical prineJpli's.

HAWKER, .I.VMES (J. 1787), rnjitnin 
in the navy, entered th»; cervieo in 1744 on 
board the Shrewsbury with Captain Gideon. 
Me was aflerwnnls with faptiiin Rodney in 
the Kheenieas, with Lucius U'lJrven in the 
(.'olcheater, and Molyneiix Shuldham. His 
paaaing certificate is dated 4 Juno 1755. l)n 
31 Dec. 1755 be was appointed lieutenant 
of t he Colchester, which in 1 75H was attached 
to the fleet ofl' Brest under Hnwlce. <_)n 
6 Aug. irfil he wni» promoted to \\w com- 
mand of the Harludoet*, ami iu April I7t>3 
was appointed to the Sardoine. He was 
posted on 2(1 May 17li8, and in March 1770 
commissioned the Aldborough. In July 177W 
hp commiinded the Iris, a 32-gun frigalo,on 
the coast of North America, and in her, on 
6 June 1780, fdugUt a woll-tvinducted and 

3iul action wth the French 3(5-gun frigate 
ermione, commanded by M. I^a Touche 
Trtville, who died in 1804, vice-admiral in 
command of the Toulcm ttw^t. A ft era seviin; 
combat, the two jiliips neparatetl, both dis- 
ahled ; the Iris n^tumed to New York, and 
the Hermione made the beat of her way to 
Boston. La Touche was greatly mortified, 
as his frigate was by far the more powerful, 
and ho Imd previously boasted that he would 
clear tliocoosl of Britishcruii»ers. .Some angry 
correspondence ensued, with \hv objeet ap- 
porently of determining which of the two 
ran away from the other. Tlua was ]»ublishedl 
in the * New York Gnxette'(BKATHON, v.47), 
and created a very unfavourable impreKsion 
of La Touche's conduct, to which Nelson 



angrily referred during the time of hiit Toulon 
command (_jYr/<'WH Desjtatcfies, vl. IQi}). It 
18 aaid that during the action a chain-shot 
did a good deal of damage to the Hermione, 
on which La Touche rcmarkod, ' A'oilii una 
liaison bien dangereiisc !'— it is, however, 
very doubtful if ine Iris fired any chain-shot. 
On 1 Aug. Hawker was moved into the Ri 
nown, which he took to England, and oa 
10 Nov. wos appointed tfl the Hero, one of
