William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham, PC, FRS (15 November 1708 – 11 May 1778) was a British statesman of the Whig group who served as Prime Minister of Great Britain in the middle of the 18th century.

  2. William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham (15 November 1708 – 11 May 1778) was a prime minister of Great Britain. He was appointed by King George III. His London house, in St. James's Square, is now the home of the international affairs think tank called Chatham House . In 1758, during the Seven Years' War, he came up with the strategy of blocking the St. Lawrence River so the French troops in Quebec and Montreal could not get more supplies.

    Not very good at formatting, so i'm just gonna put it here, but this article is way too text heavy. It needs a lot more subheads and pictures, if possible, to make it more visually appealing to the reader, and that would also make it eaier to read (Nelson4823:04, 17 October 2007 (UTC)) If England had heeded Pitt's warnings, and kept the spice islan...

    we should probably move him back to "William Pitt the Elder", since that is what he is known as most comonly -- Tarquin00:26, 7 Sep 2003 (UTC) 1. I agree. See Wikipedia:Naming conventions and more specifically Wikipedia:Naming conventions (common names). These basically say to use the most common name of a person. 30 pages link to William Pitt the ...

    Once again convention prevails against common sense. A man universally known as "William Pitt the Elder" is now treated under "William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham", by which he was not known, nor ever could be: the surname and the title are not used together. Why do we not treat him under "William Pitt, 1st Viscount Pitt of Burton Pynsset, 1st Earl o...

    Does anyone feel brave enough to merge the two sets of text into a single article? Timrollpickering16:24, 17 Dec 2004 (UTC) 1. Argh, this page needs to be merged sometime... ugen6423:37, 31 Dec 2004 (UTC) 1. 1.1. Typical - you make a stab at merging, then someone suddenly notices that it's a copyvio, and it all gets deleted. 1.2. *sighs* 1.3. James...

    This page links to the disambiguation page Corn, but I'm not sure which sense is intended. Can you help? Thanks. — Pekinensis29 June 2005 13:17 (UTC) 1. The link is in reference to an embargo on shipment of corn & referred to corn in the generic sense, that is any grain kernel (eg wheat, barley, maize, etc).

    "The eccentric duchess of Marlborough, dying in 1744, at the age of ninety" The page for Sarah Churchill gives her age at death as 84. Which is correct? 1. She died aged 84 and I've changed this. Also removed the word eccentric as a descrition for sarah is this not fair to her. Tomcwheeler

    I understand the arguments above yet I believe that it might be better to change the "chatham" in the prime minister box to something like "chatham (pitt the elder)". It doesn't make sense to have a "pitt the younger" in the list but no elder. The alternative would be to remove the "the younger"-part from pitt the younger but I fear it might lead t...

    A key point that was missed was the defence of hanover. Pitt's involvemnt in the continental warfare was therefore two fold. He used the army of observation to tie up French resources and also to ensure that hanover was kept safe. With regards to his resignation in 1761 he actualy proposed a pre emptive strike against Spain. I have edited the artic...

    I've added a WP:NOR tag because this page contains analysis of Lord Chatham's life and events in it without citing its sources. Would anyone with specialized knowledge be willing to clean it up a bit? TysK18:20, 2 December 2006 (UTC) 1. That isn't the right tag as it is basically the EB 1911 article.

    I don't suppose anyone feels up to the task of trying to bring this into the 21st century? EB isn't a bad base, but it wouldn't take that much to make this a much more readable article assuming they have an idea of what the EB is blathering on about. Old64mb07:15, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
