BROUGHAM Henry (1778 - 1868)


There is no indication as to which Chief Justice is addressed, but it is probably that of New South Wales (Sir Alfred Stephen). Brougham, writer, orator, lawyer and politician, was a founding contributor to the Edinburgh Review in 1802. He was fiercely anti-slavery, and prominent in education reform. He defended Queen Caroline in the 1820 court case against King George IV’s accusations of adultery
