Lord John Russell

Norman Baker MP today unveiled a plaque at 14 Sussex Square to commemorate the stay there of the famous Whig and Liberal politician Lord John Russell. Youngest son of the 6th Duke of Bedford, he was twice Prime Minister and occupied nearly every other Office of State during his political career. It was at Sussex Square that his beloved wife, Adelaide, Lady Ribblesdale,  tragically died after only 3 years of marriage.

Lord John Russell was the grandfather of the 20th century philosopher, mathematician, pacifist, atheist  and CND supporter, Bertrand Russell.
