Denison Edward

Denison, Edward, son of the Bishop of Salisbury and nephew of the three following, was born in 1840. He was educated at Eton and Oxford. In 1866 his attention was called to the state of the poor in the East End of London, and next year he established himself in Stepney, where he endeavoured to grapple personally with the problems of pauperism, thus constituting himself the pioneer of a movement which has since become widespread. He visited Paris and Edinburgh also in order to study the working of other than English systems of relief. In 1868 he was returned to Parliament for Newark, but his constitution gave way, and at the close of 1869 he set out on a voyage to Australia from which he never returned, dying at Melbourne in January, 1870.
