Thomas Chisholm Anstey

Thomas Chisholm Anstey

Thomas Chisholm Anstey (born London 1816 – died Bombay 12 August 1873) was an English lawyer and one of the first Catholic parliamentarians in the nineteenth century. He also wrote pamphlets on legal and political topics, particularly those relevant to Roman Catholics.

Anstey favoured the repeal of the Union both with Ireland and Scotland. He was a Liberal in English politics, but Walker classifies him as an Irish Confederate candidate when he was elected Member of Parliament for the Irish constituency of Youghal in 1847. He was not renominated at Youghal in 1852, but contested Bedford in the general election of that year.

Anstey pursued his legal career outside the United Kingdom, by becoming Attorney General at Hong Kong October 1855 – 30 January 1859. He was also an acting Judge of the High Court of Bombay in 1865. He died in Bombay in 1873.
