Palmerston - the Landlord

The Romsey Local History Society has arranged an all-day conference on Lord Palmerston

Palmerston’s father, the second viscount, died in 1802 when his son became the third Viscount inheriting an Irish peerage and his father’s estates in Dublin, in the west of Ireland and at Broadlands in southern Hampshire.

There is plenty of evidence that Palmerston, despite his high political office, took a very detailed interest in the administration of his estates and the people who lived on them.

This conference will focus on Palmerston’s role as a nineteenth-century aristocratic land-lord, looking at the administration of his estates and his attitude to his lands and people involved with them.

Speakers include

Professor David Brown of the University of Southampton

Karen Robson, Senior Archivist of the University of Southampton


Saturday 29th March
