M, #108521, b. 7 July 1782, d. 11 November 1858
Last Edited=12 Jun 2011
     Thomas Wilde, 1st Baron Truro of Bowes was born on 7 July 1782 at Castle Street, London, England.2 He was the son of Thomas Wilde and Mary Anne Knight.3 He married, firstly, Mary Wileman, daughter of William Wileman and unknown Devaynes, on 13 April 1813 at London, England.2 He married, secondly, Augusta Emma d'Este, daughter of Augustus Frederick Hanover, 1st Duke of Sussex and Lady Augusta Murray, on 13 August 1845 at London, England.2 He died on 11 November 1858 at age 76 at Eaton Square, London, England, from heart-affection and dropsy.4 He was buried at St. Lawrence's Church, Isle of Thanet, Kent, England.4
     He was educated between 1789 and 1796 at St. Paul's School, London, England.3 He was a practising Solicitor between 1805 and 1817.3 He was admitted to Inner Temple on 7 February 1817 entitled to practice as a Barrister.3 In August 1820 he was one of the 11 counsel for the trial of Queen Caroline.3 He was a practising Serjeant-at-Law on 13 May 1824.3 He held the office of King's Serjeant in 1827.3 He held the office of Member of Parliament (Liberal) (M.P.) for Newark between 1831 and 1832.3 He held the office of Member of Parliament (Liberal) (M.P.) for Newark between 1835 and 1841.3 He held the office of Solicitor-General between 2 December 1839 and July 1841.3 He was invested as a Knight on 19 February 1840.3 He held the office of Member of Parliament (Liberal) (M.P.) for Worcester between 1841 and 1846.3 He held the office of Attorney-General between 3 July 1841 and September 1841.3 He held the office of Attorney-General between 2 July 1846 and 6 July 1846.3 He held the office of Lord Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas between 7 July 1846 and July 1850.3 He was invested as a Privy Counsellor (P.C.) on 30 October 1846.3 He was created 1st Baron Truro of Bowes, co. Middlesex [U.K.] on 15 July 1850.3 He held the office of Lord Chancellor between 15 July 1850 and February 1852.3
     He is said by Lord Tenterden to have had 'industry enough to succeed without talent, and talent enough to succeed without industry.' Foss wrote that 'both as Chief Justice and Chancellor he showed the most untiring patience; and the judgments he pronounced had been considered by the profession to be highly satisfactory.3' Roundell, Lord Selbourne, wrote that 'the removal of Wilde in 1850, from the Court of Common Pleas to the Woolsack, had been received with surprise, and could only be accounted for by his marriage with Miss D'Este, the Duke of Sussex's daughter. But Lord Truro, as Chancellor, took pains to do well, and was not unsuccessful; he was a very upright and honourable man, who in the earlier part of his professional career had suffered, with courage and patience, under an undeserved personal stigma; and now he made himself popular (with myself among others) by degree of hospitality and affability, to which the Chancery bar had not been much accustomed. In this he was a convert by his wife, whose manners were frank and agreeable, though she sometimes chose to remind her guests of that claim to Royal rank, by the advocacy of which, as her brother's Council, her husband—not well favoured by nature—had gained her affections.3'
