Source :  Jacques CHANIS

Born: on August 18, 1792 in London, England
Died: on May 28, 1878 in Pembroke Lodge, Richmond Park, Surrey, England


Russell was born into the highest echelons of the British aristocracy. The Russell family had been one of the principal Whig dynasties in England since the 17th century, and were among the richest handful of aristocratic landowning families in the country, but as a younger son of the 6th Duke of Bedford he was not expected to inherit the family estates. As a younger son, he bore the courtesy title "Lord John Russell", but as he was not a peer in his own right he was entitled to sit in the House of Commons.
