Lord Dudley North, and was born in 1637. About 1655
he entered as a student the Middle Temple. Soon after
he was called to the bar he went on the Norfolk circuit,
where his family interest lay, and relied for success on
sycophantic arts. He was appointed solicitor-general
in 1671, attorney-general in 1673, and chief justice of the
common pleas in 1675. He was the obsequious servant
ot the court, and an ultra-royalist, or Tory, in politics.
" He was a party," says Macaulay, " to some of the
foulest judicial murders recorded in our history." In
1682 he obtained the great seal, with the title of lord
keeper. On the accession of James II. (February, 1685)
the great seal was left in his custody, but he was super-
seded in his political functions by his rival, Lord Jeffreys.
Lord Guilford died in September, 1685, leaving his title
to his son Francis.

English Tory statesman, better known as LORD NORTH,
was born in 1733. He was a son of Francis, Earl of
Guildford, who died in 1790, and was a great-grandson
of the lord keeper of that name. In 1763 he was chosen
one of the lords of the treasury. He became chancellor
of the exchequer and leader of the House of Commons
in 1769. He was a successful debater, and, on account
of his wit and suavity of temper, a great favourite with
the House. He also gained the extraordinary favour of
the king by his readiness to accept the responsibility
of prime minister in the emergency which arose on the
resignation of the Duke of Grafton in 1770. The prin-
cipal event of his administration was the American war,
which he prosecuted with great pertinacity. Though
fiercely assailed by Burke, Fox, and Lord Chatham, he
maintained his power with eminent tact and ability, and
was supported by large majorities in the House, until
March, 1782, when he resigned, after the surrender of
Cornwallis had terminated the American war. He re-
tained, however, the royal favour until he entered into
the ill-omened coalition with Fox against the Shelburne
ministry. In March, 1783, Lord North became secretary
of state in the coalition ministry of which the Duke of
Portland was the nominal head. He was dismissed in
December, 1783, when Pitt became premier. In 1790
he succeeded to the earldom of Guildford. Died in 1792.
"As a statesman," says Lord Brougham, "his merits
are confessedly far inferior to those which clothed him
as a debater and a man. The American war is the great
blot on his fame."
