Mitford, William

Mitford, William (1744-1827), historian, was the son of a country gentleman in Hampshire. He entered Parliament in 1783. His ample means enabled him to spend 30 years in the composition of a History of Greece (1780-1818), which is now little read but by no means forgotten. It is marked by all the prejudices of a bigoted Tory partisan.
