John Brabazon Ponsonby

John Brabazon Ponsonby was born in or about 1770, the eldest son of William Brabazon Ponsonby of Bishop's Court, County Kildare, by Louisa, daughter of 3rd Viscount Molesworth. The Ponsonbys were prominent in Irish politics and, after the Union, Ponsonby's father, uncle, 3 brothers and himself sat, at various times, on the opposition benches in the Commons at Westminster. Ponsonby, who had been a member of the Irish Parliament 1793-1800, evidently had little taste for politics and did not seek re-election in 1802. In January 1803 he married Lady Elizabeth Frances Villiers, youngest daughter of the 4th Earl of Jersey. His sister, Mary Elizabeth, had married Charles Grey, the future prime minister, in 1794 - a connexion which undoubtedly advanced Ponsonby's career in later years.
In March 1806 his father was raised to the peerage as Baron Ponsonby of Imokilly but died in November that year. Inherited debts and his own, arising from habits of extravagance, eventually forced Ponsonby to leave England. He held some minor office in the Ionian Islands but his papers provide little evidence of his activities there or indeed of any aspect of his career before the 1820s by which time he had returned to England.
In July 1825 he wrote to George Canning, the Foreign Secretary, to seek employment. Canning appeared anxious to get Ponsonby out of the country which lends credence to the story that George IV wanted him beyond reach of his mistress Lady Conyngham, who had been attracted to Ponsonby, a particularly handsome man. Certainly by the end of the year Ponsonby was given his first major diplomatic posting - to South America.
His future career can be summarized as follows, the dates of his arrival and departure from his various missions being taken from British Diplomatic Representatives 1789-1852 (Camden Society, 3rd series, 50):
Brazil
Special mission. Arrived at Rio Janeiro shortly before 26 May 1826 and left 28 August 1826.
Rio de la Plata (Argentine Republic) Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary. Arrived at Buenos Aires 16 September 1826 and left 31 July 1828.
Brazil
Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary. Arrived at Rio Janeiro about 20 August 1828 and departed about 28 June 1829.
Belgium
Joint Commissioner with Count Bresson of the Conference of London to the Provisional Government. Arrived in Brussels about 7 December 1830 and left 11 June 1831.
Sicily
Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary. Arrived in Naples shortly before 27 October 1832 and left 6 April 1833.
Turkey
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary. Arrived in Constantinople 1 May 1833 and left 10 October 1841.
Austria Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary. Arrived in Vienna on or before 1 November 1846 and left 31 May 1850. (On leave 20 April - 19 July 1849.)

Ponsonby was opinionated and headstrong, vain and with a reputation for indolence, though, when aroused, he could be indefatigible. He did not lack skill in diplomacy but several members of the British government and some of his fellow diplomats had little confidence in him. Lord Palmerston, the Foreign Secretary, though not blind to Ponsonby's shortcomings, praised his achievements and defended him against numerous attacks both at home and abroad. Ponsonby died in February 1855 aged 84 years.

Contents

Apart from his short time in Naples, there are significant amounts of material in his papers for all these missions, though there is less than might be expected in the case of Austria. The bulk of the material, however, relates to his 9 years in Turkey and constitutes a major source for the study of this eventful period in the Eastern Question. The 1,922 letters from Frederick Pisani, the chief dragoman of the British Embassy, to Ponsonby and the 2,097 instructions from Ponsonby to Pisani are of particular value in illustrating the day to day activities of the Embassy, while the guarded references to "our friend" [Vogorides, Prince of Samos] in letters to Ponsonby from Dr MacGuffog, the Embassy physician who also attended the Sultan, throw light on clandestine operations.

Accession details

The papers came to Durham with those of the Earls Grey, presumably because of the close family connexion and because his nephew, General Charles Grey, was his executor.

Arrangement

General Grey mentioned "a confused mass" of his uncle's papers. They have now been sorted into files by correspondents in alphabetical order with some files on countries and subjects also included in the sequence. Cross-references are also provided selectively in the list under some countries and topics to relevant material in the correspondence files. A list of country and subject headings in the list is given after this introduction. The spelling of foreign names posed a problem. Generally the spelling adopted here is that used in the documents themselves. The papers have been arranged and the list compiled by Dr J. M. Fewster.
