Durham John George Lambton Earl Of 1792-1840 Entered British
Parliament, 1814, for county of Durham, and won recognition as an
advanced Reformer. Brought forward plan of parliamentary reform in 1821.
Raised to peerage, 1828. Member of Grey's ministry, 1830. Sent to St.
Petersburg on special mission, 1833. Ambassador to Russia, 1836. Sent to
Canada in 1838 to bring order out of the chaos of the Rebellion. His
famous Report followed. His policy in Canada excited much opposition
both in Great Britain and Canada. The House of Lords voted disapproval
of some of his acts, and he took the extraordinary step of returning to
England without either being recalled or obtaining the royal consent.
Nevertheless the wisdom of his recommendations has since been abundantly
justified. Died at Cowes, in the Isle of Wight, soon after his return.
