Henry John Temple


British politician, Secretary of War October 1809 and Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs November 1830. With a title of Lord Palmerston, he held great influence during his era. Temple came from a highly reactionary Tory background, his dad opposed the French revolution and loathed social change, so he grew naturally into one of the most cynical arch enemies of liberal thought in England.

Temple's resignation was forced in December 1851 when he supported Napoleon. However, a year later, Queen Victoria made him Home Secretary and then Prime Minister in 1855. Nationalistic, insensitive and penurious, he despised and feared the American democracy as being deeply threatening.

Temple caught a fever 10/12/1865 and died within the week, 10/18/1865, London.

Roscoe Hope quotes Palmerston's father's private papers in American Astrology 4/1986, "Henry John Temple, the eldest child of the 2nd Viscount Palmerston was born at his father's townhouse at 7 o'clock in the evening of Wednesday, October 20."

Sy Scholfield quotes David Brown, "Palmerston: A Biography" (Yale University Press, 2011): "in the Autumn of 1874 the Palmerstons' first child, Henry John, was born, at 4 Park Street in Westminster (now 20 Queen Anne's Gate). Lord Palmerston noted in his diary on 19 October that his wife was 'ill' and on the 20th recorded that ... Lady P. brought to bed of a son at seven in the evening.'"
