William Dickinson MP
"He was educated at Oxford, where he took the degree of M.A. as a member of Christ Church in 1795, and that of B.C.L. as a member of All Souls in 1799. He was called to the bar at Lincoln's Inn Feb 6 1796. He was first returned to Parliament for Ilchester, in the same year; and in 1802 for Lostwithiel in conjunction with Colonel Hans Sloane (who married another Miss Fuller). In May 1804, on the return of Mr. Pitt to office, he was nominated a Lord of the Admiralty, and re-elected for Lostwithiel. In 1806, on the death of his father, he succeeded him as one of the members for Somersetshire, and he continued to represent that county, during six Parliaments, until the year 1831, when, disapproving of the Reform Bill, he was defeated by Mr. Gore Langton. He had latterly abstained from taking any part in politial affairs."
