Frederick John Robinson, 1st Earl of Ripon

Frederick was Prime Minister between August 1827 and January 1828. In 1814 Robinson married Lady Sarah Albinia Louisa Hobart (1793–1867), daughter of the Earl of Buckinghamshire, and a relation of Castlereagh.
In 1823 he was appointed Chancellor of the Exchequer, a post he held for four years, during which time this silhouette was taken. He cut taxes and made grants to house the Royal Library in the British Museum and to buy the Angerstein collection for the National Gallery. Jupp writes, 'These achievements, together with his support for Catholic relief and the abolition of slavery, led to his being regarded as one of the most liberal members of the government and to two more nicknames – 'Prosperity Robinson' and 'Goody'.
In 1827 he was raised to the peerage, and in the House of Lords was Leader of the House and Secretary of State for War and the Colonies.
