  Henry Hallam - LoveToKnow 1911
HENRY HALLAM (1777-1859), English historian, was the only son of John Hallam, canon of Windsor and dean of Bristol, and was born on the 9th of July 1 777.
Hallam was a fellow of the Royal Society, and a trustee of the British Museum, and enjoyed many other appropriate distinctions.
Hallam is generally described as a "philosophical historian." The description is justified not so much by any philosophical quality in his method as by the nature of his subject and his own temper.

Educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford and called to the bar in 1802, Hallam is most famous for his exposition of English constitutional law.
Leoni demonstrates, through historical evidence, the role of law in a Free Society; and how common law, which among individuals encourages "spontaneous adjustment" by its tradition, tacit rules and private arbitration, is being replaced with written, or legislative law, a type of law which leads to the destruction of individual freedom.

 Henry Hallam
The only son of John Hallam, canon of Windsor and dean of Bristol, he was educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford, graduating in 1799.
Hallam's earliest literary work was undertaken in connexion with the great organ of the Whig party, the Edinburgh Review[?], where his review of Scott's Dryden attracted attention.
If Hallam ever deviated from perfect fairness, it was in the tacit assumption that the 19th century theory of the constitution was the right theory in previous centuries, and that those who departed from it on one side or the other were in the wrong.

In 1827 was published the best known of Hallam’s works— known, because of the clearness and solidity that still keep it a text-book of the subject which it treats, and which, to the large majority of students of English history, is the sum and substance of all that compels their interest in the national past.
Hallam’s Constitutional History was, at a later date (1861–3), adequately continued by Sir Thomas Erskine May, who had made a name for himself by his standard work, The Rules, Orders and Proceedings of the House of Commons (1854).
Hallam’s way of asserting his sureness as to facts was overpowering in conversation; and Thomas Campbell described him as, though devoid of gall and bitterness, yet “a perfect boa-contradictor.” (Campbell’s Life and Letters, ed.

About 1770 two brothers, William and Henry Hallam, cut off from ancestral inheritance by the laws of entail and primogeniture, sought to lay foundations by their own enterprise in a field of more promise and a wider range than England extended to the portionless scions of her gentry and nobility.

Hallam's mother was Florence Johnson, daughter of Dr. Johnson, of a well-known Southern family whose ancestry is traced to Dr. Samuel Johnson, the first of all lexicographers.

 English Literature - Henry Hallam
Hallam was born in 1777, the son of a dean of Bristol, and was educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford.
Hallam considered that the modern Whig constitutionalism was the ideal standard to which all questions should be referred, and may therefore have been too severe on Charles I and some statesmen of his century.
One of the latter, Arthur Henry Hallam (1811-1833), was of most brilliant promise, and has been lamented by his friend Tennyson in the most exquisite elegy in the English language.

Arthur Henry Hallam was Tennyson's closest friend when he was attending college at Cambridge.
Hallam's early death in 1833 overwhelmed Tennyson with grief and motivated the writing of In Memoriam (NAEL 8, 2.1138–88).
It would not be difficult to shew, by reference to the most admired poems of Wordsworth, that he is frequently chargeable with this error; and that much has been said by him which is good as philosophy, powerful as rhetoric, but false as poetry.

 Arthur Henry Hallam Biography | Dictionary of Literary Biography
Arthur Henry Hallam is remembered chiefly as the youthful friend of Alfred Tennyson, whose companionship with Hallam is celebrated in the laureate's elegy In Memoriam (1850).
But during his brief life, Hallam numbered among his other friends such Victorian luminaries as William Ewart Gladstone, Richard Monckton Milnes, Fanny Kemble, and Richard Chenevix Trench, all of whom testified to his considerable promise and enormous personal appeal.
Moreover, a volume of Hallam's poems and several of his influential essays had been published before his death at twenty-two; his 1831 review of Tennyson's Poems, Chiefly Lyrical became a sort of manifesto for some of the English aesthetes.

 Alfred, Lord Tennyson
It was that same year, on 15 September 1833, that Hallam died suddenly at the age of 22.
Yet it was during this time that he began to compose one of his greatest works, "In Memoriam A.H.H.," dedicated to Arthur Henry Hallam.
It is commonly assumed that Tennyson was an orthodox believer, but there are strong reasons to conclude that he doubted immortality — his wife quotes him saying, "About a future life we know hardly anything"** — and rejected important Christian doctrines.
