Untitled[edit]

Since he received the Lansdowne title after his premiership and when he was effectively retired from politics, should he not be at William Petty, 2nd Earl of Shelburne? Timrollpickering 08:11, 13 Jun 2004 (UTC)

This one I'd forgotten about - since no-one has posted can I suggest that if no-one objects in the next three days that I move the page? Timrollpickering 07:56, 28 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Source for Religion: Dissenter[edit]

Does anyone have more details about the claim Religion Dissenter? What specific sect did he belong to? --Gary123 (talk) 06:06, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

I echo this question, five years on. It would be interesting to know the denomination, and when he professed membership of it. Anglo-Irish 'Ascendancy' families were usually Anglican or more precisely Church in Ireland (disestablished in 1868). I would raise a citation need if I could make it fit in the Infobox.Cloptonson (talk) 15:26, 6 December 2015 (UTC)
I have checked his long biography in the ODNB (2004) but find no reference to his religion at all.Cloptonson (talk) 12:11, 12 December 2015 (UTC)
