    ..........................................

    Thompson, Thomas Perronet (1783?1869), army officer and politician, was born on 15 March 1783 at 17 Lowgate, Hull, eldest of the four children of Thomas Thompson (1754?1828) and his wife, Philothea Perronet Thompson, née Briggs (1753?1823). His father was a banker and merchant, MP for Midhurst 1807?18, and a prominent Wesleyan preacher and friend of William Wilberforce. His mother was the granddaughter of Vincent Perronet, vicar of Shoreham and associate of John Wesley. Thompson was educated at Hull grammar school, then under the headmastership of Joseph Milner, the church historian. In 1798 he went up to Queens' College, Cambridge, and began a long friendship with its president, Isaac Milner, brother of Joseph and later dean of Carlisle. Thompson gained the BA degree as seventh wrangler in 1802, and was elected to a fellowship of his college in 1804. In 1803 he joined the navy as midshipman on HMS Isis, flagship of Vice-Admiral (later Lord) Gambier, but transferred to the army three years later. He was commissioned as second lieutenant in 1806, lieutenant in 1808, captain in 1814, major in 1825, and lieutenant-colonel (unattached) in 1829, at which time he retired from military service. His subsequent promotions were made by brevet: to colonel (1846), major-general (1854), lieutenant-general (1860), and general (1868). Thompson was involved in several important battles. He was captured by the Spaniards after General John Whitelock's ill-fated expedition against Buenos Aires in July 1807. In 1813?14 he saw action against the French at Nivelles, Nive, Orthez, and Toulouse, and was later awarded the Peninsula medal with four clasps. By this time he was a husband and father. In 1811 he had married Anne Elizabeth Barker (1793?1871) of York. They had three sons and three daughters.

    In 1808, after returning from captivity in South America, Thompson became the first crown-appointed governor of Sierra Leone. Wilberforce and the Saints had established the colony in 1787 as a place where free black people would cultivate the land, carry on profitable trade, and demonstrate to the world that they were not peculiarly suited to slavery, despite the claims of slave traders. But the Sierra Leone Company had never provided effective administration. There were civil disorders and food shortages, and relations with surrounding native peoples were far from cordial. Firmly opposed to slavery, and enjoying Wilberforce's patronage, Thompson was keenly interested in the fate of the colony and, when the Saints transferred Sierra Leone to the crown, the British government accepted their suggestion that he would be a suitable governor. When he discovered undisguised slavery in Sierra Leone, however, and realized that the Saints and the British government had been misled about the colony's social and economic conditions, Thompson introduced an extensive range of reforms and made serious allegations against the colony's former administrators. Embarrassed by his revelations, the Saints advised the government to recall him and he returned to Britain in 1810. Thompson was convinced that the Saints sacrificed him in order to save face. They feared that Thompson's claims about Sierra Leone would threaten their reputations and achievements, particularly the 1807 abolition act. Thompson was deprived of opportunities publicly to vindicate his policies in Africa, and deeply disappointed by removal from the governorship. He also blamed the British government for failing to respond to his call for an inquiry.

    In 1815 Thompson went to Bombay as interpreter and political adviser attached to the 17th light dragoons. After several military engagements in India, where he served under Francis Rawdon Hastings and Sir John Malcolm, he inserted an anti-slave-trade clause in a treaty concluded between the British crown and peoples of the Persian Gulf. But this success was followed by a serious disappointment for Thompson. In November 1820 he led an ill-conceived expedition against Arab pirates, which led to a court martial. Though acquitted, he was also reprimanded for undertaking an important mission with inadequate forces. Thompson blamed his Sepoy troops for failing to stand and face an enemy charge. The Bombay authorities could not risk trouble with their Sepoys, however, and forced Thompson to take the blame. He often referred to this disappointment, and to the Sierra Leone controversy, in later years. These were significant opinion-shaping experiences.

    Thompson engaged in political and literary activities after returning from the east in 1822. With much of Europe in turmoil, he joined London committees for the support of political refugees and interested himself in the cause of Greek and Spanish liberals. He became a close friend of John Bowring, who introduced Thompson to Jeremy Bentham and his circle of philosophical radicals. Thompson later accepted an invitation to translate part of Bentham's Constitutional Code into Arabic. Developing an ever keener interest in political economy, Thompson contributed an article ?On the instruments of exchange? to the first issue of the Westminster Review (January 1824). In 1826 he published his True Theory of Rent. This supported Adam Smith's idea that rent levels were determined by demand for agricultural products, and rejected the principle advanced by David Ricardo and James Mill that rent was dependent on production costs. Thompson's arguments were favourably received by Jean-Baptiste Say, and also influenced later commentators such as J. M. Keynes and J. A. Schumpeter. Thompson believed that the Ricardian idea of rent was a weak link in the case against the corn laws, and followed the True Theory of Rent with his most famous pamphlet, the Catechism on the Corn Laws (1827). This persuasive argument for repeal proved extremely influential, went into eighteen editions by 1834, and prompted Thompson's election as fellow of the Royal Society in 1828. As well as his political and economic writing in subsequent years, he published works on enharmonic principles, just intonation, geometry, and the theory of parallels. His enharmonic organ was displayed at the Great Exhibition in 1851, and one of his mathematical pamphlets was extremely popular in France after its translation by Professor M. van Tenac of the royal establishment at Rochefort. During the 1830s Thompson joined the Foreign Learned Society and the Société Française de la Statistique Universelle, and was a corresponding member of several other such bodies.

    But it was mainly as a politician that Thompson now made his mark. The death of his father in 1828 brought him a modest fortune, and he began to devote himself to radical causes. The financial difficulties of the Westminster Review prompted him to become its part owner and co-editor from 1829 until he sold up to Sir William Molesworth in 1836. He was a prolific contributor to the review, and his articles on parliamentary reform, Catholic emancipation, and free trade were particularly influential (40,000 copies of the piece on Catholic emancipation were issued as The Catholic State Waggon in 1829). He also wrote the articles of 1829?30 which defended utilitarianism against the assault published by T. B. Macaulay in the Edinburgh Review. An unsuccessful parliamentary candidate at Preston in January 1835, Thompson narrowly won in Hull the following June, but the tories petitioned against his return. Though this petition was dismissed after an inquiry, Thompson lost £4000 in costs, which he considered an outrage. He did not contest Hull at the 1837 general election, but stood instead at Maidstone, where he came bottom of the poll. He was then an unsuccessful candidate in Marylebone (1838), Manchester (1839), Hull, and Cheltenham (both 1841), and Sunderland (1845), before his victory in Bradford at the 1847 general election. He lost this seat in 1852, but served again as MP for Bradford from 1857 to 1859. In the Commons, Thompson was a consistent supporter of radical reform and free trade, but his political alliances could and did change because he placed principle above party. He was not reluctant to vote against usual allies when he thought they were in the wrong. One such occasion came in 1851, when Thompson supported the Ecclesiastical Titles Bill. As an MP, he wrote reports about political affairs to his constituents, and these were regularly published in the Liberal press. He continued to send letters and articles to London and provincial newspapers throughout his career. Contributions on military affairs in the Crimea appeared in the Daily News in 1854. Much of his work was published in two collections, Exercises, Political and Others (6 vols., 1842) and Audi alteram partem (3 vols., 1858?61). The latter collection included Thompson's criticism of the policies pursued in India at the time of the mutiny. He always retained his early fascination with the customs and religions of the east.

    Thompson knew and co-operated to varying degrees with most of the leading radicals of his era. His most active period outside parliament came in the late 1830s and early 1840s, when he was a tireless spokesman and fund-raiser for the Anti-Corn Law League (which republished some of his writings), a promoter of ?sensible? Chartism, and the advocate of broad liberal alliances in towns where co-operative effort drawing in whigs, moderate reformers, and radicals seemed to be most viable. Among his later writings were the Catechism on the Currency (1848), which stressed the advantages of a paper currency, unconvertible but limited, and an exposure of Fallacies Against the Ballot (1855), later reissued as A Catechism (1859). He also involved himself in the agitation of the National Parliamentary Reform Association (1848?52).

    Thompson was a short man, stout and physically strong, with a large nose and high forehead. His hair turned grey relatively early, and he lost teeth as a result of illness in Sierra Leone. Known for simple and abstemious habits, he never seemed concerned about physical comforts and preferred to devote money and attention to politics. For much of his adult life he was vegetarian and teetotal, which suited his austere disposition and, he believed, prolonged good health. Thompson spoke with a slight northern accent and habitual solecisms. He enjoyed relating stories for the amusement of himself and others, but was also prone to bouts of depression, particularly when disappointed in his public career. In particular, the delay in brevet promotions to which he was entitled was a source of much anguish in the 1840s and 1850s. He was slow to forgive a slight, and in his public activity proved not to be effective as part of a team. Headstrong and independent, he was sometimes too abrasive and blunt even for close associates. With advancing years he was dismissive of those he regarded as his juniors in terms of intellectual accomplishments and public service.

    Though born in the Church of England and reared a Methodist, Thompson rejected the faith of his parents. He described himself as a Sabellian, though he later drifted back towards orthodoxy. He had no narrow denominational ties and remained firmly committed to religious toleration, but was staunchly protestant and in his final years expressed deep respect for the church, regarding it as an indispensable institution in spite of its shortcomings.

    Thompson was never fond of Cottingham Castle, the country house to which the Thompsons moved from nearby Hull in 1797, and when his father died it was let to tenants. After retiring from the army in 1829 he settled with his own family in London. During the 1830s they resided at 13 Hanover Terrace, Regent's Park, and in 1841 moved to Eliot Vale, Blackheath. Thompson died there on 6 September 1869. He was buried in Kensal Green cemetery.

    PAPERS OF THOMAS PERRONET THOMPSON (1783 - 1869)
    1757 - 1933
    4 linear metres
    Historical background
    Thomas Perronet Thompson was born in Kingston upon Hull on 15 March 1783. His father, Thomas
    Thompson, was working in the mercantile house of William Wilberforce (grandfather of the anti-slavery
    campaigner) when his eldest son was born. His father had a very successful career as a merchant and
    banker and was able to build, from the proceeds, a vast castellated gothic Georgian house, known locally
    as 'Cottingham castle'. Thomas Thompson entered parliament in 1807 as Tory MP for Midhurst in Sussex
    and worked closely with William Wilberforce (the younger) to get the African slave trade banned by act of
    parliament later that year.
    The Thompson family was Methodist. T. P. Thompson's mother, Philothea Perronet Thompson nee Briggs
    had received letters from John Wesley as a child because both her parents, William Briggs and Elizabeth
    Briggs nee Perronet, and her maternal grandfather, Vincent Perronet, were friendly with John Wesley.
    Thomas Thompson, himself a Methodist preacher, was advised by Wesley to marry Philothea (Johnson,
    pp.10-11).
    T.P. Thompson went to Hull Grammar School from 1796 where he became friendly with George Pryme
    (later the first professor of political economy at Cambridge University). This was a friendship which lasted
    throughout his life until Pryme predeceased him by just over one year. Their friendship became inspired by
    a mutual interest in economics. Thompson completed his education by taking a degree in mathematics at
    Queen's College, Cambridge in 1802. Between 1802 and 1808 Thompson joined first the navy, seeing
    action against the French, and then the army in the 95th Rifles. In the latter capacity he was sent on an
    unsuccessful expeditionary force to Buenos Aires, was captured by the Spanish, imprisoned for a short
    while and then returned to England where he found himself at a loose end.
    Four things in Thompson's early career shaped the rest of his life. His connections through his father with
    the Wilberforce family made him vehemently opposed to slavery. His Methodism made him both prurient
    and passionately attached to causes of human justice. His interest in mathematics led him to theorize
    causes of human justice in terms of economics in his later publications. Finally, his early spell in the army
    led to an attachment to that institution that persisted after he ceased to be actively employed on service.
    On Thompson's return to England from South America he stayed with William Wilberforce and impressed
    him with his enthusiasm for the improvement of affairs in Africa. Wilberforce exerted his influence with the
    'Clapham Circle' of Henry Thornton and Thompson, aged only 25, was almost instantly put forward as the
    new Governor of Sierra Leone (Johnson, pp.24-6).
    Sierra Leone had been conceived as a colony for ex-slaves. It was governed by the Sierra Leone
    Company which had been set up by act of parliament in 1791; Henry Thornton was chairman. The colony
    had come under the authority of the crown in 1807 and Thompson became the first governor of Sierra
    Leone, the crown colony. The letter of his appointment from Lord Castlereagh dated 11 April 1808 is at
    DTH/1/19. From this we learn that Thompson was immediately put on a salary of £1500 p.a., to rise to
    £2000 upon his taking up the appointment from the last governor, Thomas Ludlam, after the rainy season.
    In 1808 these were large sums, and they were probably offered because the job came with a reasonable
    risk of death.
    Thompson's journey from Portsmouth to Freetown, Sierra Leone is recorded in a series of letters he sent
    to Anne Elizabeth (Nancy) Barker who was later to become his wife. These are reprinted in the only
    published biography of Thompson: L.G. Johnson, General T. Perronet Thompson (1957) pp.32-7.
    Thompson recorded finally coming ashore on 21 July 1808 after a two month voyage. However, just under
    two years later he was back in England, relieved of his post and in disgrace. The collection of papers in the
    Brynmor Jones Library, especially at DTH/1, for the period are sizeable and help us to form a picture of
    how this came about.
    Hull University Archives - DTH
    3
    In the collection are three papers detailing the utopian political and economic principles upon which Sierra
    Leone was founded (DTH/1/6, 34, 39). They appear to have been left by Thomas Ludlam for Thompson
    and they bear titles about 'promoting improvement' in Africa and on the best means for its 'civilization'.
    These make clear that one of the objections to slavery in Africa was that it had exacerbated tribal conflict,
    which in turn crippled agricultural production reducing the capacity of Africa for trade with the rest of the
    world. Free-trade and anti-slavery concerns were interconnected. The writer of one document warned that
    'if the first steps are mismanaged the opportunity [for 'civilization'] we now have may be entirely lost before
    the error can be retrieved' (DTH/1/6).
    The translation of those 'first steps' into practical policies can be seen by some of the documents relating
    to the government of Sierra Leone before Thompson arrived (e.g. DTH/1/2 contains letters from Henry
    Thornton and past governors like Zachary Macauley; DTH/1/4 is a document about the setting up of a
    school; DTH/1/9 is a survey of the Sierra Leone Company's lands; an estimate of the cost of employing
    slaves is at DTH/1/24 and plans for forming a Black Corps from freed slaves off American vessels are at
    DTH/1/35; details about slaves released are at DTH/1/51-3). Also from the surviving papers it is possible to
    see the extent to which Thompson thought those 'first steps' had already been so badly mismanaged that
    the colony was very far from being utopian. He kept a rough journal from the date of his landing until 17
    October 1808 (DTH/1/21) and he later wrote a 'narrative of facts' in 1811 (DTH/1/102) which was very
    damning of the moral behaviour and policies of the previous government.
    The colony held several very different groups of settlers and aboriginal inhabitants. The ex-slaves were
    largely West Indian and Nova Scotian. Thompson quickly identified with them and the tribal chiefs rather
    than the English governors of the colony. 'While the white inhabitants are roaring with strong drink at one
    end the Nova Scotians are roaring out hymns at the other' he told Nancy on 4 August 1808. His 'narrative
    of facts' in 1811 confirmed this initial affront to his moral and religious sensibilities - at his first dinner at
    government house, one of the guests became so inebriated that he slid to the floor 'where he lay roaring
    out those words of shame which Christian men are forbidden to repeat' (DTH/1/102) (Johnson, p.40).
    However, much more importantly, Thompson found that the system of apprenticeship in place in the
    colony was little short of slavery in practice. Thompson's own account was that when he raised this issue
    with one of the commissioners at that first dinner he received the shocking response that slavery had
    always been necessary to the colony (DTH/1/102). From that time Thompson threw himself into the
    abolition of what he saw as the last vestige of slavery and the implementation of the utopian plans for
    improvement through agriculture and other means of the colony. Thomas Ludlam, acting under the old
    constitution of the Sierra Leone company transferred the governorship to Thompson by inserting a public
    order into the minutes of the council for 26 July 1808 (the copy of the minutes of council are at DTH/1/57
    but these begin 27 July and end 15 December 1808; notes of Thompson's made later give this account of
    the transfer - DTH/1/92).
    News of his attack on the apprentice system was received coldly by his patrons of the 'Clapham Circle'.
    However, details of his activities took a while to arrive in England, though when they did, he was quickly
    recalled, in April 1809, on the grounds that he had taken up his position before receiving his orders from
    the crown (DTH/1/19). This made him angry and he redoubled his efforts at freeing slaves, building roads
    and settlements, and sowing seeds for cultivation. His letters to Nancy dated March to September 1809
    are at DTH/1/74 (more of them survive in Leeds University MS 277). In March, just before his recall, he
    was telling her idly and cheerfully that he shared his quarters with two alligators, four snakes, two iguanas
    and five wild cats (he sent her a shed snake skin). After his recall he began recounting to her his frenzied
    activity. 'The ancient regime are astonished to see me proceeding as if I had the Govt as an annuity for
    life', he told her. 'Since the news of going home I have manufactured the foundations of three new towns,
    to their exceeding great annoy' (DTH/1/74).
    Thompson's response to his dismissal can be seen as a blueprint for his later political career - he was
    always at his most energetic when in a position of righteous opposition! Other papers of interest for this
    period include details of the capture of slave-trading ships and the release of slaves (DTH/1/5, 11, 15-16,
    30-2, 41, 54-6, 70). Letters and dispatches of the period are at DTH/1/2, 14, 26-7. They include letters
    from William Wilberforce (DTH/1/61), correspondence with his predecessor, Thomas Ludlam (DTH/1/63),
    and the general orders for his eventual transfer of government in February 1810 (DTH/1/47, 87).

    Thus Thompson was recalled in April 1809 but had until February of the following year to throw himself
    into reforming the colony 'his way'. In May he had written to Nancy that he hoped 'contrary winds may keep
    back the Soleboy [the ship carrying his successor, Captain Columbine] till our people get their land sowed'
    (DTH/1/74). His prayers were answered; the ships got caught up in the capture of Senegal in July 1809
    and Columbine was forced to return to England and then catch another ship (DTH/1/67-9). By August
    Thompson was able to tell Nancy 'I verily believe that in one year I have doubled the cultivation of the
    colony'. His rebellion against injustice gave him strength, he told her, and he flippantly added that he had
    heard his 'sagacious father' had disowned him too (DTH/1/74). He was clearly unperturbed by the censure
    of authority and was caught up in a mission to transform Sierra Leone, much of which he financed out of
    his own salary (DTH/1/97).
    Thompson maintained his righteous rage after landing in England in May 1810. Calling the bluff of Lord
    Castlereagh, who had ordered him home to 'explain' his administration (DTH/1/19) he now began
    demanding a full and public enquiry as well as his salary for his time at sea, which he worked out precisely
    as £319 14s 11 1/4d. To these ends he wrote to Lord Liverpool three times between 13 December 1810
    and 14 January 1811, but an interview with Robert Peel made it clear that his dismissal cut short his
    entitlement to pay (DTH/1/97). Thompson was left impecunious as well as angry and the enquiry does not
    seem to have taken place. There was a local enquiry into the administration of Ludlam (DTH/1/94).
    Correspondence (including drafts and copies of letters) for 1810 is at DTH/1/94-6. Thompson spent much
    of this year and early 1811 writing post facto justifications of his own administration of Sierra Leone and
    these included posthumous attacks on the administration of Ludlam (DTH/1/92, 98, 102). He also kept up
    a correspondence with the new governor, Columbine (DTH/1/82, 88-9), and some material survives in the
    collection from Columbine's administration (DTH/1/86, 90). Thompson's report to Treasury is at
    DTH/1/100. Apart from the material already mentioned from DTH/1, accounts of Thompson's time as
    governor of Sierra Leone are also to be found in the notes of one of his family biographers at DTH/1/33.
    There is much more to be found in the biographical material calendared at DTH/4 and DTH/5 (e.g.
    DTH/1/4/26). In addition, the Brynmor Jones Library has copies of the Sierra Leone 'Gazette' for the period
    and these make interesting reading in conjunction with the archival material held.
    After he left Sierra Leone, Thompson continued to be interested in the fate of ex-slaves and he left a
    lasting impression on them in return. In October 1838 the Jamaican ex-slaves wrote to him, enclosing a
    petition they had drawn up for Queen Victoria, asking that they be returned to Jamaica (DTH/1/101). As
    late as the 1860s he was contributing letters to The Anti-Slavery Reporter (DTH/3/41-3). (DTH/4/32 holds
    a copy of The Times report on the anti-slavery jubilee for 1884.) This was a pattern to be repeated in his
    life; Thompson did not jump from one cause to another, leaving the last behind. Instead, he spent his life
    accruing them.
    In 1812 Thompson turned his mind to happier things. He made plans to marry Nancy, though even this did
    not go quite as smoothly as he might have hoped. Both fathers were against the marriage and the couple
    was forced to elope, Thompson collecting Nancy from her home in York in the dead of night and then
    picking up a post-chaise outside The Black Swan to whisk her off to London. Thompson was unemployed
    and remained unreconciled to his father which left him in considerable financial difficulty. Nancy returned
    to the home of her parents in York, where she had the first of six children, Lucy. Thompson made the
    decision to rejoin the army and he spent 1813 and 1814 on active service in northern-Spain and southern-
    France. On 12 December 1813 his brother, Charles William, was killed in action and Thompson was
    devastated. He made his way to the burial place and exhumed the body on 23 December to retrieve a lock
    of hair and a gold cross of sentimental value (Johnson, pp.71, 82-3).
    On his return from Spain he was promoted to the rank of captain in the 50th Foot and then moved to the
    17th Light Dragoons who were serving in India. His wife had had a second child, Thomas, but she left the
    two children with her parents and travelled to Bombay with her husband in mid-1815, despite being
    pregnant again. In November 1815, a second son was born to the Thompsons and he was named Charles
    William after T.P. Thompson's deceased brother. The army allowed his wife and child to come and go at
    different times from where Thompson was stationed. Thompson spent the time learning Arabic and on 16
    November 1819 he joined Sir William Grant Keir as Arabic interpreter on an expedition to suppress the
    Wahabee pirates of the Persian Gulf. He was accompanied by his wife and child. A peace treaty was
    concluded in January 1820 and Thompson insisted on including a clause banning the slave trade
    (Johnson, pp.97-8).

    Thompson was then made a political agent in Ras-al-Khyma and was left in the area with a force of over
    1000 men. However, the camp at Ras-al-Khyma was attacked and demolished and they were forced to
    evacuate on 18 July 1820 to Deristan on the island of Kishme, at a time when the whole family was
    dangerously ill. From there a surgeon ordered the Thompson family back to Bombay, but they only got as
    far as Maskat before Thompson decided they were well enough to return to Kishme. In Kishme events
    went from bad to worse. He decided to act in co-operation with the Imam of Maskat to suppress the
    piratical Beni Bou Ali Arabs. The trip was a total disaster, a mere handful of men surviving and no officers,
    except Thompson. He was relieved of his post to await court martial in Bombay on 4 May 1821. The
    verdicts on four charges were a mixture of guilty and innocent and he was returned to his regiment
    (Johnson, pp.104-5, 108-13).
    Papers concerning this catastrophic period in Thompson's life are catalogued as DTH/2. They include
    Thompson's appointment as Keir's interpreter (DTH/2/3), bundles of letters and dispatches, some of them
    relating to the fated expedition against the Beni Bou Ali and the subsequent court martial (DTH/2/1-8, 11-
    13-17, 24, 40-3). There are also orders for the evacuation of Ras-al-Khyma, memoranda of Thompson's
    about the expedition at DTH/2/19 and strength returns and casualties from the expedition, which make sad
    reading indeed (DTH/2/26, 35-9).
    Other papers covering these incidents in Thompson's life are scattered through the collection. DTH/4/16
    contains translated copies of letters sent to Thompson in 1820 and there are other letters February to June
    of that year at DTH/4/17. His son Charles put together some notes on the expedition and these are at
    DTH/4/27. Letters about the Beni Bou Ali expedition are at DTH/4/28-9. Thompson wrote a letter to The
    Globe about the expedition on 18 May 1821 and this is at DTH/6/20.
    Thompson seems to have been a person of unquenchable and manic enthusiasms. Ordered home with
    his regiment towards the end of 1821 he decided to obtain leave and go overland with his wife and son,
    travelling by camel and dhou in the middle east. Both he and his son became ill, but recovered. The day
    he arrived home on 2 February 1823 his mother died and in May his sister, Philothea, finally succumbed to
    tuberculosis. No sooner had he returned home than he threw himself into a new cause, that of Radical
    politics. He met Jeremy Bentham in about 1823 and translated his Leading Principles into Arabic. In 1825
    he was promoted to rank of major in the 65th Foot and he served for a while in Ireland. In the same year
    Bentham launched, with John Bowring whom Thompson almost met around 1823, the Westminster
    Review. Thompson's long career of political journalism began here with an article on The instrument of
    exchange. The two pamphlets for which he is most famous, The true theory of rent (DTH/3/4) and
    Catechism on the corn laws, quickly followed in 1826 and 1827 and marked him out as a free-trade acolyte
    of Adam Smith who was willing to apply free-trade theories to problems of social justice. Papers reflecting
    these dual and interconnected interests are at DTH/3/4, 6, 23, 26 [includes a letter of John Stuart Mill], 31
    (Johnson, pp.113-16).
    In 1828 Thompson's father died and he inherited the family fortune and 'Cottingham' Castle', which he
    promptly rented out and later sold (it burnt down in 1861, leaving one tower, now visible in the grounds of
    Castle Hill Hospital; a newspaper cutting about the fire is at DTH/7/3). Having inherited some money, he
    started to spend it, 'carrying on in the unpractical manner of the Sierra Leone days...[investing] in Liberal
    and Radical causes and...[calling] his losses gains'. He withdrew from the army, purchasing an unattached
    lieutenant-colonelcy in 1829. He continued to take an interest in army affairs (DTH/3/18, 28) and to rise
    through the ranks until he reached that of general without seeing further active service. He now threw
    himself fully into a career of political journalism as a Radical and, to that purpose, bought the Westminster
    Review in 1828. He moved into Baker Street in London and made London his permanent home (Johnson,
    p.142).
    Unfortunately, papers relating to the period 1821-1830 are notable by their absence and so this period of
    Thompson's life can only be gleaned through the prism of the two unpublished family biographies and
    notes relating to them. Charles William Thompson's biography takes his father's life through to 1827 and is
    at DTH/4/1-3, the last volume covering the 1820s. Edith Thompson's biography is at DTH/5/1-24 and
    volumes 17-19 cover the period 1821 to the beginning of 1830. Edith Thompson, in particular, seems to
    have been most concerned to explain her grandfather's actions in Sierra Leone and the Persian Gulf. At
    DTH/5/31 is her correspondence with other family members about such matters. DTH/5/35-7 comprises
    over 1000 pages of her notes and biographical work covering the Sierra Leone and Persian Gulf debacles.

    Much of Thompson's correspondence in the Brynmor Jones Library is catalogued at DTH/4 and DTH/5
    because Edith and Charles William Thompson (especially the latter) were very active in having his letters
    transcribed. Further original correspondence is to be found in the other major deposit relating to T.P.
    Thompson in University of Leeds MS 277, but most of the originals were destroyed in a fire in London in
    1874.
    From about 1830 it can be said that Thompson devoted the rest of his life to various social causes which
    he articulated through his Radical political activism, especially writing and parliamentary electioneering and
    campaigning. One cause he took up in the 1830s was that of catholic emancipation and his article the
    Catholic state waggon ran to 40,000 copies in circulation. Through the pages of the Westminster Review
    he threw his weight behind the Reform Act of 1832. However, tension quickly developed between the aims
    of the Radicals and the Whigs and this was undoubtedly intensified by Thompson's article Adjustment of
    the House of Lords. By 1838, though, Thompson was blaming Joseph Hume, whom he called 'our
    bungling friend Joseph', for their departure in political aims (DTH/4/8, letter to George Pryme 28 Feb.
    1838).
    Possibly Thompson came to believe that the most effective way open to him to pursue his Radical politics
    was to gain a seat in parliament for in 1834 he allowed his name to be put forward as Radical candidate
    for Preston (Lancs). He failed to win the seat, but won a by-election in Hull the following year by only five
    votes. He now sold the Westminster Review to devote his time to constituency affairs. He was a diligent
    constituency MP, writing twice a week for local newspapers and he continued to do this throughout his
    parliamentary career. He took up causes that were brought to his attention. For example, DTH/3/10 is a
    letter from 1837 asking him to bring a measure against duelling in the house and his reply and
    memorandum survive. Transcriptions of letters relating to 1830-5 are at DTH/4/4-6; many of them are to
    his friend and political ally, John Bowring.
    T.P. Thompson's parliamentary career was not smooth. In 1837 he stood for Maidstone and failed to get
    elected against the young Benjamin Disraeli. His expenses are detailed at DTH/3/11 and there is a later
    letter about it to a newspaper at DTH/6/33 (dated 26 December 1878). Thompson spent the next decade
    in the (parliamentary) political wilderness until he was finally elected as Radical candidate for Bradford in
    1847. His transcribed correspondence 1835-47 is at DTH/4/6-12 and DTH/5/25-5 and includes more
    letters to and from John Bowring as well as letters to and from various family members, including to his
    youngest child Anne Elise (Lily) who had been born in 1833. Nancy had given birth to two other children
    since getting back from the Persian Gulf - John Wycliffe, born 1824, and Annie, born in Dublin in 1828.
    Unfortunately this fifth child died just before the sixth was born.
    Thompson's political life made his family life quite chaotic and this is reflected in letters between himself
    and his family (there are a few original letters between himself and his children at DTH/7/3 dated 1839-42).
    'I cannot believe I am as bad as you say,' he joked with Nancy on 26 October 1838. 'What is it that can be
    brought against me, but that some political opponents disapprove of what I do; and who is there of whom
    the like cannot be said?,' he continued (DTH/4/8). By the late 1830s the family had moved several times
    within London, but in 1839 they moved from Regent's Park to Blackheath, where they stayed permanently
    (Johnson, p.231).
    Thompson's political life in the late 1830s and early 1840s was dominated by two causes; Chartism and
    the Anti-Corn Law League. While still an MP in 1837 he had been one of the six MPs to sign the original
    People's Charter calling for a wider franchise and parliamentary reform. References to Chartism can be
    found in some correspondence catalogued amongst Thompson's miscellaneous papers at DTH/3/13, 15.
    The speech of Joseph Hume on suffrage 21 March 1839 is at DTH/6/35. Anti-corn law material includes
    anti-corn law election cards 1835-42 (DTH/3/8), a speech of his friend George Pryme on 2 April 1840
    about the corn law (DTH/6/6) and a letter in The Daily News dated 7 November 1874 which makes
    reference to the anti-corn law activities of Thompson (DTH/6/32). In 1846 when the Anti-Corn Law League
    achieved its victory, Richard Cobden singled Thompson out for his support. Copies of letters from
    Thompson to Cobden are at DTH/4/11 and DTH/5/26-8 (Morrison, 'Thomas Perronet Thompson', p. 17).
    Between 1837 and 1847 Thompson continued to fight elections to get back into parliament at the same
    time as pursuing his goal of reforming the parliamentary system of democratic election and process. A
    letter of John Childs dated 27 September 1839 talks about the suffrage campaign and makes reference to
    Thompson's demonstrating activities in Manchester. He stood in the Sunderland election in 1845 and
    Hull University Archives - DTH
    7
    speeches and newspaper cutting relating to this are at DTH/3/17 and DTH/6/38-46. In 1847 he had to
    choose between standing for Bradford and Westminster and his refusal to the electors of the latter is at
    DTH/3/29. Thompson's election win, standing for Bradford in 1847, brought him out of the (parliamentary)
    political wilderness and he held this seat until 1852 when he lost an election by only six votes. Papers
    relating to the 1847 Bradford election and his term as Bradford MP are at DTH/3/19 and DTH/6/47-50 and
    include his speeches. He continued his campaigning for parliamentary reform from this new position and
    papers about parliamentary reform include a petition to the crown from the inhabitants of Bradford
    (DTH/3/5) and Thompson's considerable correspondence with the Bradford Reform Association
    (DTH/3/30-3). The Association's schedule of the true area and population of Bradford from 1831-51 can be
    found at DTH/3/22. As MP for Bradford he became an even more active correspondent with his electors
    than he had been while MP for Hull. Some of this correspondence is at DTH/4/14 and DTH/5/27.
    Thompson also became involved in the issue of catholic emancipation and papers relating to the debate
    on papal aggression in 1851 are at DTH/3/32-6. A printed pamphlet entitled The Roman catholic question
    dated 1850 is at DTH/6/15. He continued his economic mission by writing an article, Catechism on the
    currency, which advocated an inconvertible but limited paper currency, and he presented these views to
    parliament in a series of resolutions which were defeated in 1852. Copies of Thompson's letters with family
    and friends between 1848 and through the 1850s can be found at DTH/4/13-4 and DTH/5/25 (Dictionary of
    National Biography).
    Thompson spent five years out of parliament between 1852 and 1857, but kept himself busy with political
    pamphleteering. He spoke vehemently against the government over the opium trade, causing him to sever
    his friendship with John Bowring irrevocably in 1857 when he was once again returned to parliament for
    Bradford. In this year he began a series of letters to the Bradford Advertiser on a variety of political issues
    and these were later gathered into a multi-volume publication. Letters and speeches of Thompson at the
    time of the 1857 election can be found at DTH/6/51-6 (Morrison, 'Thomas Perronet Thompson', p.17;
    Johnson, pp.278-80).
    Thompson's parliamentary career came to a close with the dissolution of parliament in 1859 when he was
    76 years old. He continued his career as a political journalist as can be seen from an original letter to the
    Bradford Advertiser entitled 'Are the Whigs giving over housekeeping?' dated 1866 in which he attacks the
    whigs for their treatment of the aboriginal inhabitants of Jamaica and New Zealand (DTH/3/29). He also
    took up the cause of the Irish church in 1868 and his letters to newspapers about this are at DTH/6/30-1.
    The Halifax Reform Association asked him to stand for election in 1864 and papers relating to this are at
    DTH/3/37-40. The Brynmor Jones Library also holds copies of the Bradford Advertiser 2 April 1862 to 30
    December 1865 with the letters of T.P. Thompson contained therein.
    Transcriptions of Thompson's private letters through the 1860s until his death in 1869 are at DTH/4/15 and
    DTH/5/28 and the latter also contains some originals of his letters to the Bradford Advertiser. DTH/6
    contains interesting printed material for the period 1820-86, including some newspaper cuttings of
    Thompson's political speeches during his long career. Obituaries and small biographies can be found at
    DTH/4/30 and DTH/6/34, 57-77.
    Despite Thompson's unwavering attention to social and political causes in the latter part of his life, he
    remained a polymath and his private letters reveal him to be a man interested in everything from natural
    history to music. Before falling from grace with Lord Castlereagh in 1809 he had drafted a letter to him with
    suggestions for a natural history of Africa (DTH/1/14). Towards the end of his life he became very attached
    to his granddaughter, Edith (daughter of Thomas Perronet Edward Thompson), and wrote to her about
    shrimps, fish, crabs, frogs, grasshoppers, wasps, hornets, snails and comets. His varied advice by post
    covered everything from philately to the choice of a ball dress (Leeds MS 277). The private letters held in
    the Brynmor Jones Library and the University of Leeds make an interesting study of a man who was very
    accessible to his children and grandchildren. Edith went on to become a prolific author, chronicling the life
    of her ancestors (DTH/5/34) and her grandfather, but also helping to compile entries for the Dictionary of
    National Biography and editing, with Eleanor Freeman, huge amounts of the Oxford English Dictionary.
    There is a letter from Eleanor Freeman to Edith dated 6 December 1887 at DTH/5/33 (see DX/9 - her
    correspondence with Edward Augustus Freeman).
    Thompson's other major interest from about the late 1840s was music and he designed for Edith an
    enharmonic organ which was used to open the Grand Exhibition in 1851, playing 'God save the queen'.
    Hull University Archives - DTH

    Papers relating to this organ and its presentation to the Tonic Sol-fa Society are at DTH/3/9, 24 and
    DTH/4/15 (there is more in Leeds MS 277). His article, Just intonation, on the organ is at DTH/3/25.
    T.P. Thompson's papers in the Brynmor Jones Library offer much to the researcher interested in the formal
    and informal political processes of mid-nineteenth-century Britain. Thompson is, himself, a case study of a
    person whose long political career was broken in terms of parliamentary representation, but continuous in
    terms of pamphleteering and campaigning in newspapers and taverns (e.g. DTH/4/8) for a whole hotchpotch
    of causes, in his case taken up bcause of his interconnected beliefs in free trade and social justice,
    originally given vent in his anti-slavery and anti-piracy missions in Sierra Leone and the Persian Gulf. Right
    at the end of his life he took up one last cause; that of women. Following on from a letter he received from
    Mr J.T. Dexter in 1868 complaining that women should have an equal right to the franchise and entry into
    training and the liberal professions, Thompson drew up a petition complaining that in the case of women
    designated femes sole there was 'taxation without representation' (DTH/3/29). For the researcher
    interested in women's history, there is also a letter to Mrs E. Gaskell dated 25 May 1860. A final item of
    particular interest in the T.P. Thompson collection is a photographic reproduction of an engraving of his
    father, Thomas Thompson, at DTH/7/1.

    The private and family papers of Thomas Perronet Thompson are catalogued in seven sections, the first
    two relating to different (and peculiarly controversial) periods in T.P. Thompson's career for which quite a
    number of papers survive. DTH/1 is papers relating to his brief spell 1808-10 as governor of Sierra Leone
    and DTH/2 contains papers from a later period, 1818-21, when he was on active service in the army in the
    Persian Gulf and India. The remainder of the collection comprises various papers relating to his career in
    the army, in parliament and as a writer, reformer and political activist. DTH/4 and DTH/5 are the
    biographical papers collected by his son, Charles William Thompson, and grandaughter, Edith Thompson,
    both of whom wrote biographies of T. P. Thompson that were subsequently not published. Within these
    sections are many copies of letters to and from T. P. Thompson from 1830.
