Lord Brougham (1778-1868)

The first Baron Brougham and Vaux was a Scottish-born jurist, statesman, and social reformer. In 1810 he entered the House of Commons. A leading radical, he belonged to the campaign against slavery and promoted educational reforms for the poor. In 1830 Brougham was made a peer and appointed Lord Chancellor in the new Whig government. The statesman was the moving force behind the Abolition of Slavery Act and the Married Women's Property Act. The baron's name became a household word when he designed the first carriage to be drawn by one horse only - the brougham.
