Charles 
Grey
1764 - 1845


Charles 
Grey
, MP. He had 15 children by 1819. Presided over the passage of the Reform Act of 1832. Educated at the University of Cambridge. In 1786 he became a Whig member of the House of Commons. In 1797, when his proposals for electoral reform were rejected, Grey promoted the unsuccessful Whig secession from Parliament. In 1806, Grey became foreign secretary in the coalition government of Prime Minister William Wyndham Grenville and leader of the House of Commons. The government lost power after one year, however, and in 1807, Grey succeeded to his father's earldom. In January 1808 he took his seat in the House of Lords; from 1812 to 1830 he was the leader of the opposition. During the 1820s there was increasing demand that Parliament be reformed to make it more representative of the nation as a whole. When, in 1830, the agitation for reform had developed into a dangerous crisis, King William IV summoned Grey to form a new government. He persuaded the king to threaten creation of enough new peers to defeat the strong opposition in the House of Lords, and was thus able to pass the first Reform Bill through Parliament in 1832. He resigned in July 1834.
