CARLISLE, Frederick Howard, fifth earl of, British statesman, born 28 May, 1748; died in Castle Howard, England, 4 September, 1825. He first distinguished himself in the house of lords by advocating conciliatory measures toward the American colonists, and was one of the three commissioners sent to America by George III., in 1778, to endeavor to restore peace. He was viceroy of Ireland from 1780 till 1782, and afterward became lord privy seal. He was an opponent of Pitt in 1791 and 1792, but supported the war against the French in the latter year. He opposed the enactment of the corn laws in 1815. Lord Carlisle was the uncle and guardian of Byron, who dedicated to him his "ftours of Idleness." He issued several pamphlets, and numerous tragedies and poems, which he collected and published in one volume (1801).
