Benjamin Bond Cabbell

Benjamin Bond Cabbell FRS DL (1782/3 – 9 December 1874), British politician and philanthropist, was educated at Westminster School, and went up to Oriel College, Oxford, in June 1800, but left the university in 1803 without a degree. He was called to the bar of the Middle Temple in 1816 and practised on the western circuit. He was a magistrate for Norfolk, Middlesex, and Westminster.

Cabbell was elected a fellow of the Royal Society on 19 January 1837. Cabbell was Conservative Party Member of Parliament for St Albans from August 1846 to July 1847, and then for Boston until he retired in March 1857.

He was Deputy Lieutenant of Middlesex in 1852, and High Sheriff of Norfolk in 1854.

He was president of the City of London General Pension Society, vice-president of the Royal Literary Fund, treasurer to the London Lock Hospital, and sub-treasurer to the Infant Orphan Asylum. He was a generous benefactor to Cromer in Norfolk where he had his country house, Cromer Hall: he paid for a lifeboat[1] and donated land for a cemetery. Cabbell subscribed to many London charities, sat on the committee of the Artists' Benevolent Fund, and helped in the fund's application for a royal charter. He was a freemason, serving as a trustee of the Royal Masonic Institution and as provincial grand master of Norfolk.

He was widely known as an art patron. He became a member of the Artists' Benevolent Fund, 1824, aided in obtaining a charter of incorporation for the society in 1827, and contributed 20l. towards the preliminary expenses.

He died at 39 Chapel Street, Marylebone Road, London, 9 December 1874, in his 94th year.
