Philip Morrell

Philip Edward Morrell, (4 June 1870 – 5 February 1943) was a British statesman and Liberal politician.

He was the son of Frederic Morrell, solicitor, of Black Hall, Oxford, by his wife Harriette Anne, daughter of the President of St John's College, Oxford, the Rev. Philip Wynter DD. The Morrell family had made its fortune as brewers of beer, and Philip Morrell's grandfather was a trustee of the family brewery.

Philip Morrell was educated at Eton and Balliol College, Oxford. He married Lady Ottoline Cavendish-Bentinck in 1894.

He served as Liberal MP for Henley from 1906 to 1910 and Burnley from 1910 to 1918.

He opposed Britains entry into the First World War and with Charles Trevelyan and others formed the Union of Democratic Control to oppose military influence in government.
