John Leveson-Gower, first Earl Gower (1694-1754), politician. Leader of the Tories in the Lords in the 1730s, after Walpole's fall he was the one Tory to take high office (as lord privy seal and a privy councillor, from 1742) in the new ministry, as delebrated here. However, he resigned in December 1743, soon after this print was published. He subsequently regained his position as lord privy seal and held it until his death. Gower's proximity to the whig administration provoked suspicion that he had deserted Tory principles (Dr Johnson included him in his dictionary definition for 'renegado' although the printer removed the reference).
