William Wyndham Grenville, Baron Grenville - LoveToKnow 1911 (631 words)
WILLIAM WYNDHAM GRENVILLE, BARON GRENVILLE (1759-1834), English statesman, youngest son of George Grenville, was born on the 25th of October 1759.
He was doubtless regarded by Pitt as the man best fitted to carry out his policy with reference to France, but in the succeeding years he and his chief were frequently at variance on important questions of foreign policy.
When Pitt returned to power in 1804 Grenville refused to join the ministry unless his political ally, Fox, was also admitted thereto; this was impossible and he remained out of office until February 1806, when just after Pitt's death he became the nominal head of a coalition government.
Thomas Pitt Camelford - LoveToKnow 1911 (124 words)
THOMAS PITT CAMELFORD, 1ST Baron (1737-1793), English politician and art patron, was a nephew of the 1st earl of Chatham.
He dabbled in architecture and the arts generally, and was a prominent figure in the artistic circles of his day.
His son Thomas Pitt, znd Baron Camelford (1775-1804), who succeeded him in 1793, had an adventurous and misspent career in the navy, but is principally remembered for his death in a duel with Mr Best on the 10th of March 1804, the title becoming extinct.
