Biography

Henry George Grey, 3rd Earl Grey (styled Viscount Howick 1807-1845) was born at Howick, Northumberland, in 1802 and died there in 1894. The eldest son and heir of Charles, 2nd Earl Grey (Prime Minister 1830-1834), he followed his father into politics in 1826, when he was elected M.P. for Winchelsea in the Whig interest. He was subsequently M.P. for Higham Ferrers 1830, Northumberland 1831, and Northumberland Northern Division 1832-1841, and, having lost his Northumberland seat at the general election in 1841, was returned for Sunderland in September of that year.
An "advanced" Whig, sympathetic to radical causes, Howick proved an active supporter of both Catholic emancipation and Parliamentary reform. In 1830 he was appointed Under-Secretary for the Colonies in his father's administration, and showed himself strongly influenced by the colonisation schemes of Edward Gibbon Wakefield (who, however, was to be an opponent of his policies at a later stage of his career). High-minded but impatient and dogmatic, he resigned his office in 1833 because of the cabinet's unwillingness to undertake immediate emancipation of slaves in the West Indies, but was readmitted to the administration from January to July 1834 as Under-Secretary for Home Affairs.
In April 1835 Howick entered the cabinet as Secretary at War in Lord Melbourne's government, and became a Privy Councillor. He continued to be keenly interested in colonial affairs, on which he not infrequently found himself at odds with cabinet colleagues, particularly the Colonial Secretary, Lord Glenelg, of whose irresolute policy in Canada Howick was sharply critical. Indefatigably hard-working but tetchy, Howick was not an easy colleague, and his impatience combined with his tendency to extreme liberal views to put him at loggerheads with the cabinet on a variety of policy matters, such as flogging in the army and other matters of army reform, Ireland and particularly the question of Irish church revenues, the corn laws, and voting by ballot. In the 1839 government reshuffle promotion for Howick was blocked, and he resigned from the administration, but continued to be active in parliament, notably in relation to Ireland and to free trade.
Howick succeeded as 3rd Earl Grey on the death of his father in July 1845, becoming the active leader of his party in the House of Lords. In December of that year his distrust of Palmerston's handling of foreign affairs, and consequent unwillingness to serve in a cabinet with Palmerston as Foreign Secretary, caused serious delay to Lord John Russell's attempts to form a government. In June 1846, however, when Lord John's administration was eventually formed, Grey withdrew his objections to Palmerston, under the pressure of political realities, and himself returned to government, holding office as Secretary for the Colonies until February 1852. Throughout his period in office his policy on colonial matters was driven by his desire to reduce colonial costs falling on the mother country, and his fervent belief in free trade and representative institutions (but with some paternalistic reserve in his attitude to the granting of responsible government, although he was to defend it as the most appropriate form of administration for Canada). He enunciated the principle that the colonies should be governed for their own good rather than for the benefit of the mother country, and his faith in free trade made him a supporter of federalism in New Zealand, Canada and Australia, in order that the development of neighbouring colonies should not be hampered by the erection of tariff barriers against each other. His schemes for the government of New Zealand and Australia foundered on inadequate support in the colonies, but in Canada his achievement was more substantial through his choice of Lord Elgin as governor, and steady support for him through a dangerous period. He was opposed to any increase in British territory in South Africa, believing on grounds of costs and liabilities for the mother country that the wise course would be to confine it to Cape Colony and Simon's Bay, but he was forced to acquiesce reluctantly in Sir Harry Smith's establishment of the Orange River sovereignty, while attempting to protect the British treasury by laying the consequent administrative and defence costs on local settlers and tribes. Grey increased his unpopularity both in Australia and Cape Colony by his strong support for transportation, in the face of growing opposition to it both in the colonies and at home, and instituted the ticket of leave system, whereby a convict could be licensed to be at large under certain restrictions before the expiry of his sentence, the proportion remitted being dependent on his industry and conduct.
Grey was not included in Lord Aberdeen's coalition ministry formed in March 1852, and never again held ministerial office. He maintained a lively interest in public affairs, however, and an unflaggingly vigilant criticism of public policies, displaying an aristocratic independence of party allegiance which endeared him to neither party. He was active in the House of Lords, and, especially in his later years, was a frequent contributor to the Times and other journals and periodicals on the issues of the day. The colonies continued to be among his chief interests, and colonial governors continued to consult him. In 1853 he published a defense of his own policies (The Colonial Policy of Lord John Russell's Administration), and at the age of almost ninety he was still writing articles and pamphlets on colonial matters.
Ireland also remained among his foremost interests, and he became a determined opponent of Gladstone's Home Rule policies. Free trade, parliamentary reform, church affairs, foreign policy, land, tithes, bimetallism, the housing of the poor all engaged his attention and his pen.
Grey's marriage to Maria Copley, daughter of Sir Joseph Copley of Sprotborough, was a devoted partnership until her death in 1879. When apart they wrote to each other daily, often more than once. The marriage was childless, however, and he was succeeded as 4th Earl Grey by his nephew, Albert Henry George Grey.

Contents

The papers' greatest importance is for colonial history. As a minister, Grey encouraged governors and senior officials to write to him privately, and his correspondence during his years in office includes letters from some fifty colonial governors, often explaining and enlarging upon their official despatches. There is much material also relating to his earlier period of cabinet office as Secretary at War. The papers' importance for public affairs is by no means confined to the period of Grey's ministerial career, however. Because, throughout his long retirement from office, Grey remained so actively interested in matters of public policy, the papers shed light on domestic and colonial concerns over more than three-quarters of the nineteenth century. Grey's correspondents included many notable churchmen, including the holders of numerous colonial sees. Prominent women who wrote to him included the philanthropist Baroness Burdett-Coutts, the social reformer Josephine Butler (daughter of John Grey of Milfield and Dilston), and Florence Nightingale. Among his literary correspondents were Matthew Arnold, Thomas Carlyle and Harriet Martineau. One of his most frequent and important correspondents was his brother-in-law and fellow politician, Sir Charles Wood, later 1st Viscount Halifax.
Notwithstanding Grey's active concern for public affairs, possibly his greatest and most enduring interest was his estate at Howick in Northumberland, where he spent as much time as possible, especially in later years. He was Lord-Lieutenant of Northumberland from 1847 to 1877. The main series of Grey Estate Papers forms a separate division of the Earl Grey Papers, but among the correspondence in the 3rd Earl's Papers there is much material relating to estate matters, and to Northumberland affairs, notably in the letters from his brother Admiral Sir Frederick William Grey, who managed the estate for him for some years, George Annett Grey who was for many years the 3rd Earl's estate agent, and William Woodman of Morpeth, his solicitor.

Accession details

The bulk of the 3rd Earl's papers were included in the main deposit of the Earl Grey Papers made by the 5th Earl in 1956. Smaller accessions in 1962 and 1963 have been incorporated into the main series.

Arrangement

The loose papers are divided into correspondence files (alphabetically by correspondent) and subject files of other documentary material. Within the subject files there are four sub-series: Domestic, Colonial, Foreign, and War Office Papers. The loose papers also include a small section of Miscellaneous cuttings and notes. Volumes form a separately shelved sequence, and notably include the 3rd Earl's journals and diaries, as well as letter-books, registers of correspondence and applications for employment, and estate memoranda.
The 3rd Earl Grey's papers on domestic affairs are grouped in the following files:
Agriculture; Army (see also Section 5: Subject Files - War Office Papers); Books; Chancery and the Lord Chancellor; Church; Civil Service; Corn Laws And Corn Trade; Currency; Economic Affairs (Press Cuttings); Education; Factories; Greenwich Hospital and Observatory; Grey Family; Immigration; Ireland; Law Reform; Local Government; Miscellaneous Papers; Navy; Parliament - House of Lords; Parliamentary Elections; Parliamentary Elections (Sunderland); Parliamentary Reform; Political Economy; Politics; Poor Law; Poverty and Progress; Privy Council; Protection; Railways; Strikes; Tithes; Wool; Working Classes.
The papers on colonial affairs are grouped in the following files:

The 3rd Earl Grey's War Office papers (mainly belonging to the period 1835-1839 when he was Secretary at War) are grouped in the following files:
A. Army administration; B. Chatham enquiry (into maladministration of the Invalid Depot at Fort Pitt, Chatham, 1837): C. Colonial forces; D. Commissions of enquiry on the army; E. Depot system; F. Army establishment; G. Army finance; H. Army health and welfare; J. Militia; K. Army pensions and pensioners; L. Army punishments; M. Army recruiting; N. Army rewards; O. Rupee Question (dispute between War Office and East India Company over payment of troops); P. Army savings banks; R. Southouse Case (legal proceedings against Thomas Southouse for encroaching on the grounds of the Royal Military Asylum, Southampton, 1839).
The sorting and arranging of the collection was begun by Malcolm Jack soon after the main deposit, the bulk of this work was done by Dr. R.P. Doig in the early 1960's, and it was completed by Dr. J.M. Fewster. Two lists were published in the 1960's (R.P. Doig, “Grey of Howick Collection: List of Correspondence of the 3rd Earl Grey, 1818-1894”, 1960, and “List of Enclosures in the Correspondence of the 3rd Earl Grey”, 1962), but their coverage is not complete, and they are entirely superseded by the present list, which has been edited from the card index largely compiled by Dr. Doig and completed by Dr. Fewster.
Numbering of the collection has been finalised, some correspondents have been more fully identified than was possible from the more limited range of reference works available when the original listing was done, and forms of name in the list have been made more consistent with current practice.
Additional content descriptions for the letters in the correspondence files were added between August 2007 and April 2009.
