A view of Kingston Market, with a crowd celebrating the election of Charles Nicholas Pallmer (1772-1848). Pallmer, a Whig, was a slave-owner in the West Indies. As M.P. Ludershall, (181517) he fought against William Wilberforce's slave registry bill. After becoming MP for Surrey in this election he campaigned for not only for compensation for slave-owners should ownership be banned but also Catholic emancipation. He did not contest the 1830 election, claiming 'health reasons' but in reality he was heavily in debt. He fled to Europe before he was made bankrupt the following year.
