     On his death, all of his titles became extinct.5
     Holdsworth stated that "he was a more complete lawyer than any of his contemporaries. Not only was he an eminent practioner in the common law; not only did he leave his mark as lord chancellor upon the development of equity; he also studied Englaish law and law in general scientifically and critically."6 Church wrote that "Bacon was one of those men to whom posterity forgives a great deal, for the greatness of what he was done and attempted for posterity. It is idle, unless all honest judgment is foregone, to disguise the many deplorable shortcomings of his life; it is unjust to have one measure for him, and another for those about him and opposed to him. But it is not too much to say that in temper, in honesty, in labour, in humility, in reverence, he was the most perfect example that the world has yet seen of the student of nature, the enthusiast for knowledge ... his genuine devotion, so unwearied and so paramount, to a great idea and a great purpose for the good of all generations to come, must shield him from the insult of Pope's famous and shallow epigram."5 He has an extensive biographical entry in the Dictionary of National Biography.7
