Charles Kendal Bushe (1767-1843), Irish lawyer and judge, known as 'silver-tongued Bushe'. Despite his opposition to the Act of Union in 1800 he was not averse to accepting high office from the British Crown: he was appointed Solicitor-General for Ireland five years later, holding the office until 1822 when he became Lord Chief Justice of the King's Bench for Ireland. He retired in 1841, when this portrait was published. He also supported Catholic Emancipation yet prosecuted members of the Catholic Association for sedition.
