An article in the London Observer entitled 'Statesmen buried in Westminster Abbey' was published shortly after the death of Lord Palmerston in October 1865. Its author identified 'the political worthies of the past and present generation', and described successively the achievements of Chatham, Pitt the Younger, Wilberforce and Macaulay, alongside ten others. The entry at the end of the list was for an individual less familiar to modern readers but apparently not to his contemporaries.
