This family was founded by the cele-
brated writer on Political Economy,

David Ricardo, a gentleman of Jewish
origin, who was b. on the 12th April, 1772,
and educated in Holland, in order that he
might pursue the profession of his father,
a Dutch merchant and stock broker, but
incurring by an early marriage with a
quaker lady of the name of Wilkinson, the
displeasure of his friends, he was thrown
entirely upon his own resources, the friends
of his wife being equally irritated, and ob-
liged to depend solely upon his own in-
dustry. Becoming a member of the Stock
Exchange, he gradually accumulated an
immense fortune, and obtained distinction as
a writer upon Finance. In 1810, his opi-



nions upon the deprecation of the currency
were first promulgated through the columns
of the Morning Chronicle Newspaper, but
he subsequently embodied his ideas in a
distinct work, and he had the satisfaction
to find them adopted and confirmed in the
report of the Bullion Committee of the
House of Commons. He subsequently pub-
lished an " Essay on Rent," in which he
advocated the principles of Malthus, and
entered into an examination of the affairs
of the Bank of England. Eventually he
proposed an economical currency, and ad-
dressed a letter to Mr. Perceval, who was
then Chancellor of the Exchequer, upon the
subject, but without effect. His most im-
portant production was his treatise upon
" Political Economy and Taxation," a
work said to rank with the celebrated
" Wealth of Nations," of Adam Smith.
Mr. Ricardo obtained a seat in parliament,
in 1819, for the borough of Portarlington,
and the same liberality and good sense
marked his parliamentary career that had
previously characterized his writings. He
died of inflammation of the brain, arising
from an abscess in the ear, on the 11th
September, 1823.

Arms — Gu. a bend vaire arg. and vert,
between three garbs or, on a chief ermine
a chess rook sa. between two bezants.

possessed in 1814, Bishop Court, in the
county of Hereford.

Seat — Gatcomb Park.

estates upon the death of his father, 2nd April, 1803, and

for his loyalty to the king. He outlived
that season of disaster, however, and repre-
sented the borough of Tewkesbury after the
Restoration. In the House of Commons he



proved an active member, and was upon

measures against the Regicides. He m.

The right honorable gentleman died in

the pen of Edmund Burke, presents a faith-
ful delineation of his character :



To the Memory of

William Dowdeswell,

Representative in Parliament for the county of Worcester,

Chancellor of the Exchequer in the years 1765 and 1766, and a member of the King's Privy Council :

A Senator for twenty years, a Minister for one, a virtuous citizen for his whole LirE.

A man of unshaken constancy, inflexible integrity, unremitted industry.

His mind was generous, open, sincere.

His manners plain, simple, and noble : rejecting all sorts of duplicity and disguise

As useless to his designs and odious to his nature.

His understanding was comprehensive, steady, vigorous, made for the practicable business of the State.

In debate, he was clear, natural and convincing.

His knowledge in all things which concerned his duty profound.

He understood beyond any man of his time the revenues of his country :

Which he preferred to every thing except its liberties.

He was perfect master of the law of Parliament, and attached to its privileges, until they were set

Up against the rights of the people.

All the proceedings which have weakened Government, endangered Freedom, and distracted the

British Empire, were, by him, strenuously opposed ;

And his last efforts, under which his health sunk, were to preserve

His country from a civil war, which being

Unable to prevent, he had not the misfortune to see.

He was not more respectable on the public scene, than amiable in private life :

Immersed in the greatest affairs, he never lost the ancient, native, genuine English character of a

Country Gentleman,

Disdaining and neglecting no office in life.

He was a useful municipal magistrate : with great care and clear judgment administering justice,

Maintaining the police, relieving the distresses and regulating the manners of the people

in the neighbourhood,

As husband, father, the kindlest, gentlest, most indulgent.

He was every thing to his family except what he gave up to his country.

His widow, who labours with life, in order to form

The minds of his eleven children to the resemblance

Of their father, erects this Monument.

and cold which he experienced while upon
