William Wilberforce

#8340, b. 24 August 1759, d. 29 July 1833
Last Edited=28 Sep 2008
     William Wilberforce was a British politician, philanthropist and a leader of the movement to abolish the slave trade. A native of Hull, Yorkshire, he began his political career in 1780 and became the independent Member of Parliament for Yorkshire (1784–1812) and a close friend of Prime Minister William Pitt the Younger. In 1785, he underwent a conversion experience and became an evangelical Christian, resulting in changes in his lifestyle and in his interest in reform. In 1787, he came into contact with Thomas Clarkson and a group of anti-slave trade activists, including Granville Sharp, Hannah More and Lord Middleton. They persuaded Wilberforce to take on the cause of abolition; and he soon became one of the leading English abolitionists, heading the parliamentary campaign against the British slave trade until the eventual passage of the Slave Trade Act in 1807. Wilberforce was convinced of the importance of religion, morality, and education. He also championed other causes and campaigns, including the Society for Suppression of Vice, the introduction of Christianity to India, the creation of a free colony in Sierra Leone, the foundation of the Church Mission Society and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. His underlying conservatism led him to support politically and socially repressive legislation and resulted in criticism that he was ignoring injustices at home while campaigning for the enslaved abroad. In later years, Wilberforce supported the campaign for complete abolition of slavery, and continued his involvement after his 1826 resignation from Parliament due to ill health. The campaign eventually led to the Slavery Abolition Act in 1833, which abolished slavery in most of the British Empire. Wilberforce died just three days after hearing that the passage of the Act through Parliament was secure. He was buried in Westminster Abbey, close to his friend William Pitt. William Wilberforce, of Kingston-upon-Hull, the great philanthropist; M.P. for Hull 1780, for Yorkshire 1784, 1790, 1793, 1802, 1806 and 1807-12, and for Bramber, 1812-25. He became the parliamentary leader of the cause of abolition of slavery 1787. He introduced a resolution condemning slave-trade 1789, and had a motion for its gradual abolition carried by the House of Commons 1791. The bill for total abolition of the slave trade defeated several times but passed by the Commons 1804, then twice rejected by House of Lords It finally became law on 25 March 1807. He was a prominent member of the Clapham 'saints', centred around the evangelical church of the Holy Trinity, and set himself the aim for the 'Reform of Manners' - the development of a more moral society. He took part in founding Church Missionary Society, 1798, and Bible Society, 1803,the RSPCA and many other causes, to which he gave most of his fortune. He was the friend of Pitt, Raffles, Fox, Sheridan, and many more of the eminent men of his time, and author of many religious and philanthropic works including "Christianity, a Practical View" He was educated in Pocklington, and St. John's College, Cambridge.1 William Wilberforce was born on 24 August 1759 in Wilberforce House, High Street, Kingston upon Hull, Yorkshire, England.1 He was the son of Robert Wilberforce and Elizabeth Bird. William is mentioned in the will of Sarah Greathed who stated that William Willberforce was the brother of Sarah the wife of her brother Edward.2 He married Barbara Anne Spooner on 30 May 1797 in Woolcot, Bath, Somerset, England, William and Barbara had six children William, Barbara, Elizabeth, Robert, Samuel and Henry.1 William died on 29 July 1833 in Chelsea, London, England, aged 73.1 William was buried in Westminster Abbey, Westminster, London, England.1
