Thomas Dyke Acland. Praesenti tibi Maturos Largimur Honores.
Photograph. 405 x 267mm. 16 x 10½". Foxing.
This statue was created by E.B. Stephens (1815-1882) in 1861. Following a vicious northerly gale in 1930, the staute sustained some damage, and was thus removed to a more secure area in the park. It is in the Northernhay Gardens in Exeter, Devon. Sir Thomas Dyke Acland, 10th Baronet (1787-1871) was a British politician. He was a Tory MP for Devon over a period of 45 years, and following his election to Parliament in 1812 he adopted a more liberal line than his compatriots. He stayed as MP for Devonshire until 1831, where from 1831 to 1857 he sat for North Devon.
