(p.271) Conclusion

Anne Stott

Oxford University Press

The chapter contrasts the portrayal of Wilberforce in George Cruikshank’s caricature, Making Decent!’ with the drawing of the Wilberforces at Battersea Rise. It summarises the three marriages described in the book, those of William and Barbara Wilberforce, Henry and Marianne Thornton, and Zachary and Selina Macaulay, pointing out their differences as well as their similarities. William Wilberforce’s death is seen to mark the passing of the great age of the Clapham sect, a fact lamented by Sir James Stephen, the first chronicler of the sect.

Keywords:   George Cruikshank, Marianne Thornton, Battersea Rise, William Wilberforce, Barbara Spooner Wilberforce, Henry Thornton, Zachary Macaulay, Selina Macaulay, Clapham sect, Sir James Stephen
