American sympathizer Charles James Fox dies in Great Britain


Charles James Fox, first Foreign Secretary of the United Kingdom and vocal supporter of American independence, dies in Chiswick, Devon, England. Chales James Fox was born to noble parents, Henry Fox, later first Baron Holland, and Lady Caroline Lennox, daughter of the second Duke of Richmond, and received a noble education at Eton College and Oxford University.

Despite this traditional upbringing, Charles James Fox devoted his political career to defending liberty and was adamantly opposed to slavery. His peronal life however, was quite different. It revolved aroun gambling, fashion, debt, and adultry. The Fox family suffered public humiliation when King George III rejected Charles James Fox's Aunt, Lady Sarah Lennox, as a potential fiancee after enjoying a very public flirtation with her in 1760-1761.

The relationship between King George III and Charles James Fox, then, was marked by both personal and political animosity. Charles James Fox supported the protecting American Colonists during his first stint in Parliament from 1768 - 1772, then citizens of Foxborough, Massachusetts, responded by naming their town in his honor.

Charles James Fox eventually resigned from Parliament after a squabble with King George III and, while out of office, developed a strong friendship with British radical Edmund Burke, who also supported the American Patriot cause. When Charles James Fox's political vaction returned to power in 1780, Charles James Fox returned to Parliament and in 1782, he became Great Britain's first Foreign Secretary, charged with negotiating a peace treaty with the Americans following the British defeat at Yorktown, Virginia.

Charles James Fox again angered King George III with his readiness to declare the Americans independent, and was ousted from his position as Foreign Secretary by the King's Parliamentary allies. Charles James Fox managed to retain his seat in Parliament after a close and legally contested elections in 1784.

Charles James Fox went on to support the "French Revolution" in 1789 and continued to stand against Royal power until his death in 1806.
