Offices Held


Wall’s father, a wealthy London merchant, was a partner in the house of Baring, his father-in-law’s family business, and invested in estates in Hampshire and Surrey. As soon as he came of age, Wall was supposed to have prospects of coming in for Stockbridge, but it was for Guildford that he entered Parliament on Lord Grantley’s interest. No speech of his is known before 1820. He voted for a review of the criminal law, 2 Mar. 1819; with ministers against Tierney’s censure motion, 18 May, and for the foreign enlistment bill, 10 June—he paired in favour of the bill on 21 June. He was, however, in the minorities for the repeal of seaborne coal duties, 20 May, and for the postponement of the blasphemous libel bill, 21 Dec. 1819. Wall died 14 Oct. 1853.
