Was he known by all three names, or should this be moved to Robert Jenkinson, 2nd Earl of Liverpool? The article calls him "Robert Jenkinson", but I thought I'd check first. Proteus (Talk)09:22, 24 Sep 2004 (UTC) 1. No one has said anything, and I think inertia more than anything gave all our peerage articles middle names. I'm moving it. Mackensen ...
How could he enter the House of Commons in 1790? He was only twenty, or perhaps even nineteen, years old. 1. Although Members had to be 21 to take their seats, it was quite frequently the case that sons of noble houses were elected to the House of Commons before this time and only took their seats on turning 21. The minimum age was also not strictl...
I have read or heard somewhere that his mother was partly of Indian lineage. 1. I've taken the liberty of removing the short reference to Lord Liverpool and the A2 syllabus. If anyone wants to say that there has been a renewal of interest in him in recent years, that's fine; but to say that this, that or other is or isn't in the A2 syllabus is a ve...

I have added some references, creating a...
It tells us everything about his time at university but his course --RaphaelBriand (talk) 23:30, 23 February 2008 (UTC)[reply] 1. He must have claimed "privilege of nobility" to acquire an MA as quickly as he did: so he was free to study as much or as little as he felt like.NRPanikker (talk) 19:39, 7 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
It says he had a stroke and resigned as Prime Minister in 1827, and he died the following year. So, why does it state in the same paragraph that he died in office ?This is an error as he did not die in office- he died at home on 4th December 1828. JM AlterIt also says that the Hawkesbury River in New South Wales was named after him. This seems unli...
"Agriculture remained a problem because good harvests between 1819 and 1822 had brought down prices and evoked a cry for greater protection. When the powerful agricultural lobby in Parliament demanded protection in the aftermath, Liverpool gave in to political necessity. Under governmental supervision the notorious Corn Lawsof 1815 were passed proh...
