Peel, (FREDERICK,) a son of the statesman Sir Robert
Peel, was born in London in 1823. He was elected to
Parliament for Leominster in 1849, and re-elected for
Bury in 1852 and 1859. In politics he is called Liberal
Conservative. He was uuder-secretary for the colonies
from 1852 to February, 1855, under-secretary of war from
the latter date to 1857, and secretary to the treasury
from 1860 to 1865.

Peel, (JONATHAN,) a British general, a younger son
of the first Sir Robert, was born in 1799. He entered
the army young, and rose to the rank of lieutenant-
general. In 1826 he was elected to Parliament for Nor-
wich. He was surveyor-general of the ordnance from
1841 to 1846, and secretary at war in the Derby ministry
from February, 1858, to June, 1859, and again from July,
1866, to March, 1867. Died February 13, 1879.

Peel, (Sir ROBERT,) an English manufacturer and
millionaire, born near Lancaster in 1750, was the father



of Robert Peel, prime minister. He became in 1773 a
partner in a large manufactory of cotton at Bury. By
his sagacity, enterprise, and remarkable aptitude for
business, he amassed an immense fortune. He repre-
sented Tamworth in Parliament from 1790 to 1820, and
was a supporter of the ministry and Tory party. He
had six sons and five daughters. Died in 1830.

Peel, (Sir ROBERT,) a celebrated English statesman,
born near Bury, in Lancashire, on the 5th of February,
1788, was the eldest son of the preceding. He was
educated at Harrow (where Lord Byron was his class-
fellow) and at Christ Church, Oxford, where he gained
the honour of " double first-class," i.e. pre-eminence
both in classics and mathematics. He left college in
1808, and entered Parliament as a member for Cashel,
and a supporter of the Tory ministry, in 1809. In Janu-
ary, 1810, he seconded the address to the throne, and
made his first speech. He was appointed under-secretary
for the colonies in i8n, and chief secretary for Ireland
in 1812. In 1815 he challenged O'Connell for offensive
remarks in a public speech ; but the intended duel was
prevented by the police. His opponents nicknamed
him ORANGE PEEL, in allusion to his hostility to the
Catholics. He made a speech against the Roman Cath-
olic claims in 1817. In 1818 he was elected to Parliament
for the University of Oxford, in preference to Canning,
and resigned his office of secretary. He succeeded Mr.
Homer as chairman of the Bullion committee in 1819,
and acquired a high reputation as a financier by pro-
curing the passage of an act for the resumption of cash
payments. He married in 1820 Julia, a daughter of
General Sir John Floyd.

In January, 1822, he became secretary for the home
department in the ministry of Lord Liverpool. For
several years ensuing, Canning and Peel were the most
able and prominent members of the ministry. Although
Peel was less brilliant as an orator than his colleague, he
was more solid and practical, and had equal or greater
influence with his party. When Canning became prime
minister, in April, 1827, Mr. Peel retired from office. He
accepted the place of home secretary in the new minis-
try formed by the Duke of Wellington in January, 1828,
and made a powerful speech in favour of Catholic eman-
cipation (which he had long opposed) in March, 1829.
By his change on this question he lost his seat as repre-
sentative of'Oxford, in 1829. The obstinate resistance
of the Tory ministry to parliamentary reform caused
them to be defeated and driven from power in Novem-
ber, 1830. Earl Grey then formed a Whig ministry, and
Sir Robert became the leader of the opposition. At
the death of his father, in 1830, he inherited an immense
fortune and the title of baronet. He opposed the Reform
bill, (1831-32,) but declined to co-operate with Welling-
ton in the formation of a new ministry when Lord Grey
resigned, in 1832. In 1833 he was elected to Parliament
for Tamworth, which he continued to represent until 1850.

Sir Robert at this period was the recognized leader of
the Conservative party, which he had organized, and the
principles of which were modified Toryism. The Whig
ministry having been dismissed, Peel and Wellington
united to form a cabinet, in which the former became first
lord of the treasury, (i.t. prime minister,) in December,
1834. Failing to obtain the support of a majority of the
new Parliament elected at this period, Sir Robert was
compelled to resign, in April, 1835, and was succeeded
by Lord Melbourne. On the resignation of Melbourne,
in May, 1839, Sir Robert was sent for by the queen, but
he failed to become prime minister, because he insisted
on the removal of certain ladies of the bed-chamber.
The general election of 1841 gave the Conservatives a
large majority in Parliament. Lord Melbourne resigned
in August of that year, and was succeeded by Sir Robert
Peel. In the new cabinet Lord Lyndhurst was lord
chancellor, Lord Aberdeen foreign secretary, Lord Stan-
ley colonial secretary, Sir James Graham home secre-
tary, and Lord Ellenborough secretary at war. Peel
himself was first lord of the treasury. The important
events of his administration were the settlement of the
questions of the corn-laws, tariff, and income-tax. In
1842 he proposed a sliding-scale, according to which the
duty on grain should be reduced in proportion as the

price in-reased. This bill became a law. He imposed
an income-tax of -jd. in the pound to supply the deficit
in the revenue, and passed a new tariff bill, by which
many articles were admitted free and the duties on others
were reduced, (1842.) A powerful pressure against the
duty on breadstuffs was produced by the Anti-Corn-Law
League, whose interests were advocated by Cobden and
Bright in public speeches. The case was rendered more
urgent by the potato-rot in Ireland in 1845. In Novem-
ber 1845, Sir Robert announced himself in favour of
the'repeal of the corn-laws; but some of his colleagues
opposed the measure. Peel then resigned, and Lord
John Russell was called to form a new cabinet, but did
not succeed. About the zoth of December, Sir Robert
resumed office with his former colleagues, except Lord
Stanley, who retired. The Tory party was divided on
this question into Peelites and Protectionists. By the
united votes of the Peelites and Liberals, the corn-laws
were repealed, after an eloquent speech by Sir Robert
in favour of the repeal, in January, 1846. Having been
defeated on the Irish Coercion bill, he resigned, June 29,
1846, and was succeeded by Lord John Russell. He had i
acquired great popularity, which continued unabated, and
he would probably have been called again to the direction
of affairs if he had lived a few years longer. On the
2gth of June, 1850, he was thrown from his horse and re-
ceived injuries of which he died on July 2 of that year.

He was an admirer of Origen, and an adversary of Sainl
Augustine in relation to grace and election. Pelagius
rejected the dogmas of original sin and absolute predes-
tination. He maintained that the effects of Adam's firs'.
sin were confined to himself, and that man's salvation
depends on his own exertions. He was condemned by
several councils, and was banished from Italy in 410.
The eminent purity of his life was freely admitted by
his opponents. A system called Semi-Pelagianism pre-
vailed widely in the middle ages, and has many adherents
at the present day. As the numerous works of Pelagius
are nearly all lost, it is difficult to ascertain exactly what
doctrines he taught. His adversaries complained of
the haze of subtle dialectics with which he involved
every subject of dispute. Among his extant works is a
" Commentary on the Epistles of Saint Paul."
