Edward George Geoffrey Smith-Stanley, 14th Earl of Derby, KG, GCMG, PC (29 March 1799 – 23 October 1869), was a British statesman, three-time Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
and, to date, the longest-serving leader of the Conservative Party. He was known before 1834 as Edward Stanley, and from 1834 to 1851 as Lord Stanley. He is one of only four British prime ministers to have three or more separate periods in office.[1] However, his ministries all lasted less than two years, and totalled three years and 280 days. Historian Frances Walsh says it was,

Derby who educated the party and acted as its strategist to pass the last great Whig measure, the 1867 Reform Act. It was his greatest achievement to create the modern Conservative Party in the framework of the Whig constitution, though it was Disraeli
who laid claim to it.[2]

Background and education[edit] Stanley was born to Lord Stanley (later the 13th Earl of Derby) and his wife, Charlotte Margaret (née Hornby), the daughter of the Reverend Geoffrey Hornby. The Stanleys were a long-established and very wealthy landowning family whose principal residence was Knowsley Hall in Lancashire. Stanley was educated at Eton College
Eton College
and at Christ Church, Oxford. Political career, 1820–52[edit] In 1822 Edward Stanley, as he was then, was elected to Parliament in the rotten borough of Stockbridge as a Whig, the traditional party of his family.[3] In 1824, however, he alienated his Whig colleagues by voting against Joseph Hume's motion for an investigation into the established Protestant Church of Ireland.[4] When the Whigs returned to power in 1830, Stanley became Chief Secretary for Ireland
Chief Secretary for Ireland
in Lord Grey's Government, and entered the Cabinet in 1831. As Chief Secretary Stanley pursued a series of coercive measures which frequently brought him into conflict with the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Lord Anglesey.[5] In October 1831, Stanley wrote a letter, the Stanley Letter, to the Duke of Leinster establishing the system of National Education in Ireland—this letter remains today the legal basis for the predominant form of primary education in Ireland.[citation needed] In 1833, Stanley moved up to the more important position of Secretary of State for War and the Colonies, overseeing the passage of the Abolition of Slavery Bill.[6] Stanley, a conservative Whig, broke with the ministry over the reform of the Church of Ireland
Church of Ireland
in 1834 and resigned from the government. He then formed a group called the "Derby Dilly" and attempted to chart a middle course between what they saw as the increasingly radical Whiggery of Lord John Russell
Lord John Russell
and the conservatism of the Tories. Tory leader Sir Robert Peel's turn to the centre with the 1834 Tamworth Manifesto, published three days before Stanley's "Knowsley Creed" speech, robbed the Stanleyites of much of the uniqueness of their programme.[7] The term "Derby Dilly" was coined by Irish Nationalist leader Daniel O'Connell. Besides Stanley, the other principal members of the Dilly were Sir James Graham, who had resigned as First Lord of the Admiralty; Lord Ripon, who had resigned as Lord Privy Seal; and the Duke of Richmond, who had resigned as Postmaster General. These four ministers had all come from notably different political backgrounds—Stanley and Graham were old Whigs, Ripon was a former Canningite Tory prime minister, while Richmond was an arch-conservative Tory who had incongruously found himself in the Grey cabinet. Although they did not participate in Peel's short-lived 1835 ministry, over the next several years they gradually merged into Peel's Conservative Party, with several members of the "Derby Dilly" taking prominent positions in Peel's second ministry. Joining the Conservatives, Stanley again served as Colonial Secretary in Peel's second government in 1841.[8] In 1844 he was summoned to the House of Lords as Lord Stanley of Bickerstaffe in his father's Barony of Stanley by Writ of Acceleration.[9][10] He broke with the Prime Minister again in 1845, this time over the repeal of the Corn Laws, and managed to bring the majority of the Conservative Party with him (including, among others, the young Benjamin Disraeli). He thereafter led the protectionist faction of the Conservative Party. In the House of Lords, on 23 November 1847, he accused the Irish Catholic clergy of using the confessional to encourage lawlessness and crime.[11] This was disputed in a series of letters by the coadjutor Bishop of Derry, Edward Maginn. In 1851 he succeeded his father as Earl of Derby. The party system was in a state of flux when the Conservatives left office in 1846, the outstanding issues being the question of Ireland and the unresolved franchise. The protectionists had a core of leaders, of whom Disraeli
was a leading light. But in opposition the party was still in-fighting, although Disraeli
was determined to heal rifts. Political career, 1852–69[edit] First premiership[edit] Further information: Who? Who? ministry Derby formed a minority government in February 1852 following the collapse of Lord John Russell's Whig Government. In this new ministry, Benjamin Disraeli
Benjamin Disraeli
was appointed Chancellor of the Exchequer. With many senior Conservative ministers having followed Peel, Derby was forced to appoint many new men to office—of the Cabinet only three were pre-existing Privy Counsellors. When the aged Duke of Wellington, by then very deaf, heard the list of inexperienced cabinet ministers being read aloud in the House of Lords, he gave the government its nickname by shouting "Who? Who?". From then this government would be known as the "Who? Who?" ministry.[12]

Derby in 1852

Traditionally Derby's ministries were thought in hindsight to have been dominated by Disraeli. However, recent research suggests that this was not always the case, especially in the government's conduct of foreign policy. There, Derby and his Foreign Secretaries, Lord Malmesbury and later his son Lord Stanley, pursued a course of action that was aimed at building up power through financial strength, seeking to avoid wars at all costs, co-operating with other powers, and working through the Concert of Europe
Concert of Europe
to resolve diplomatic problems. This contrasted sharply with the policy of military strength and prestige that Disraeli
would later pursue, and Derby's very different take on foreign policy could be seen as the precursor of "splendid isolation", as well as the diplomatic settlement of Europe pursued by later Conservatives in the late 19th century and the 1930s. In the general election of June 1852, the Conservative party under Derby and Disraeli
won only 330 seats in the House of Commons—42.9% of the total. Although the Whigs actually won fewer seats—292 seats—there were several small groups in Parliament that might be willing to side with the Whigs on particular issues, like the 38 Conservative members of Parliament who were Peelites, who had already joined with the Whigs in June 1846 to repeal the Corn Laws; the 113 members who were Free Traders and who were interested in eliminating all tariffs on consumer goods; and the 63 members of the Irish Brigade who were interested in the independence of Ireland and Tenant's Rights for Irish tenants.[13] Immediately following the election in June 1852, none of these small groups were willing to work with the Whigs to form a government. Accordingly, the Earl of Derby
Earl of Derby
was invited to form a minority government. Derby did so and appointed Disraeli
as the new Chancellor of the Exchequer.[14] As with all minority governments, Derby's minority government had a difficult time governing. Their main preoccupation was avoiding any issue which might cause any of its small components to go over to Whigs and cause a "no confidence" vote on the minority government. However, the real issues facing Parliament could not be postponed for long, and when Disraeli
submitted his first Budget to Parliament in December 1852, it proved so unpopular with the Peelites, the Free Traders and the Irish Brigade that it was voted down in a "no confidence" vote. As a result, Derby's minority government fell, making way for a Peelite–Whig coalition under Lord Aberdeen. When Aberdeen's administration fell in 1855, Queen Victoria
Queen Victoria
asked Derby to form a government.[15] Much to the consternation of some sections of his party, including Disraeli, Derby declined this offer, believing that he would be in a position to form a stronger government after a short-lived failed administration led by one of the Conservative Party's rivals such as Lord John Russell
Lord John Russell
or Lord Palmerston.[16][17] Second premiership[edit] Further information: Second Derby– Disraeli
ministry In 1858, Derby formed another minority government upon the resignation of Lord Palmerston following a parliamentary defeat to an opposition motion which, in the context of a failed plot to assassinate Napoleon III of France, charged that "the ministry had admitted they sheltered assassins".[18] Disraeli
was again at the Exchequer and Leader of the Commons. Among the notable achievements of this administration were the end of the British East India Company
British East India Company
following the Sepoy Mutiny, which brought India under direct British control for the first time. Once again the government was short-lived, resigning after only one year, having narrowly lost a vote of no-confidence brought by Lord Hartington on behalf of various Whig and Radical factions which had coallesced at the Willis's Rooms meetings in St James's Street to mark the birth of the Liberal Party.[19] In July 1859, Derby was appointed a Knight of the Garter.[20]

Derby in 1865

Back in opposition, Derby pursued a strategy of trying to lure the Prime Minister, Lord Palmerston, away from his more radical colleagues, Lord John Russell
Lord John Russell
in particular.[21] This tactic was thwarted by Russell's declining influence and by Chancellor of the Exchequer Gladstone's 1861 budget which united the cabinet and increased divisions amongst the Conservatives.[22] Palmerston continued as Prime Minister until his death in 1865, when he was succeeded by the frail Russell.[23] Third premiership[edit] Further information: Third Derby– Disraeli
ministry Derby returned to power for the third and last time in 1866, following the collapse of Lord Russell's second government after its failed attempt at further electoral reform.[24] Once again, Disraeli
was a leading figure. This administration was particularly notable for the passage of the Reform Act 1867, which greatly expanded the suffrage but which provoked the resignation of three cabinet ministers including the Secretary for India and three-time future Prime Minister, Lord Cranborne (later Lord Salisbury).[25] In early 1868, Derby retired from political life on medical advice, leaving Disraeli to succeed him.[26] In 1869, he was appointed a Knight Grand Cross of the Order of St Michael and St George
Order of St Michael and St George
in recognition of his former role as Secretary of State for War and the Colonies.[27] Although a great orator, Derby was frequently criticised for his languid leadership. Nevertheless, he had many significant achievements, both as minister and Prime Minister, and has been described as the father of the modern Conservative Party.[citation needed] His tenure of 22 years as party leader still stands as the longest in Conservative Party history and indeed the history of any other political party in British history, only Labour's Clement Attlee came close at 20 years.[28] Family[edit] Stanley married The Honourable Emma Bootle-Wilbraham, second daughter of Edward Bootle-Wilbraham, on 31 May 1825. He left three children:[29]

Edward Henry Stanley, 15th Earl of Derby

(21 July 1826 – 21 April 1893). He married Lady Mary Sackville-West (daughter of George John Sackville-West, 5th Earl De La Warr) on 5 July 1870. Lady Emma Charlotte Stanley (25 December 1835 – 23 August 1928). She married Wellington Patrick Manvers Chetwynd Talbot on 11 October 1860. They had eight children. Frederick Arthur Stanley, 16th Earl of Derby
Earl of Derby
(15 January 1841 – 14 June 1908). He married Lady Constance Villiers (daughter of George William Frederick Villiers, 4th Earl of Clarendon) on 31 May 1864. They had ten children.

Stanley's ancestors were Kings of Man from 1405 and later Lords of Man. Thomas Stanley, 1st Earl of Derby
Earl of Derby
famously switched sides at the Battle of Bosworth

Legacy[edit] The National School system in Ireland, the predominant form of primary school education, remains based on the multi-denominational system set up by Stanley in the Stanley Letter—the letter tries to deal with the seemingly intractable issue of different Christian religions living together in Ireland. The former site of Fort Langley, British Columbia was renamed Derby by the Royal Engineers

in 1858, apparently in honour of the Earl, who was British Prime Minister at the time. Stanley (sometimes referred to as "Port Stanley") on East Falkland, capital of the Falkland Islands
Falkland Islands
is named after Edward Smith-Stanley; Port Stanley in Ontario, Canada; as well as the area Stanley in Hong Kong. Stanley was Prime Minister when Queen Victoria
Queen Victoria
opened Wellington College, in Berkshire, a tribute to the Duke of Wellington, where the boarding house Stanley is named after him. Whilst serving little function, the county of Stanley in Queensland, Australia, is named after the Earl. Notably, it contains the important Australian city of Brisbane. See also[edit]
