Clapham, Family and Friends

(p.124) 6 Clapham, Family and Friends
Zachary Macaulay 1768–1838
Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines Zachary Macaulay's relationship with his family and friends. It explains that Macaulay was often separated from his family because of his public duty and his work for the abolition of the slave trade, and mentions his family's relocation to Clapham Common in 1802, which would lead to his involvement in the Clapham Sect. The chapter suggests that because of his busy schedule, most of the people Macaulay considered friends were his colleagues in the abolition movement, who include Hannah More, Thomas Babington and Henry Thornton.
