  John George Lambton, 1st earl of Durham - LoveToKnow 1911
JOHN GEORGE LAMBTON DURHAM, 1ST Earl Of (1792-1840), English statesman, son of William Henry Lambton of Lambton Castle, Durham, was born in London on the 12th of April 1792.
Lambton was only five years old when by his father's death at Pisa (1797) he succeeded to large estates in the north of England which had been in the uninterrupted possession of his family since the 12th century.
His grandfather, General John Lambton, had refused a peerage in 1793 out of loyalty to Fox, and his father was not only one of Pitt's keenest opponents, but was chairman of "The Friends of the People" and author of that society's address to the nation in 1792.

Durham, John George Lambton, 1st Earl of, politician, diplomat, colonial administrator (b at London, Eng 12 Apr 1792; d at Cowes, Eng 28 July 1840).
Scion of a wealthy Northumberland family, Durham was educated at Eton, briefly held an army commission, was elected to the Commons in 1813 and raised to the Lords in 1828.
He also recommended a reorganization of the system of colonial government, but the British government refused to accept the principle of RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT (a term for which Durham refused to accept paternity because of its ambiguity) because it was not prepared to accept the inevitability of a form of party government in the colonies.

 Earl of Durham - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The title of Earl of Durham was created in the Peerage of the United Kingdom in 1833 for John Lambton, 1st Baron Durham, a prominent Whig politician and author of the famous Report on the Affairs of British North America known in Canada as the Durham Report.
The Earls of Durham hold the subsidiary titles Viscount Lambton (1833) and Baron Durham, of the City of Durham and of Lambton Castle in the County Palatine of Durham (1828), both in the Peerage of the UK.
The heir apparent usually uses the courtesy title Viscount Lambton, but the heir to the disclaimed 6th Earl uses the title Lord Durham to avoid confusion with his father, who continues improperly to style himself Viscount Lambton.

His investigation led to the publication, in 1839, of the famous Durham Report in which he recommended that Upper and Lower Canada be united, that responsible government be granted (see text below), that French Canadians be assimilated and that municipal institutions be established in Canada.
Durham was hailed as a statesman by Reformers in Upper Canada for recommending the granting of responsible government and as a racist in Lower Canada for proposing the assimilation of French Canadians.
But the Crown must, on the other hand, submit to the necessary consequences of representative institutions; and if it has to carry on the government in unison with a representative body, it must consent to carry it on by means of those in whom that representative body has confidence”.

In a nutshell, the essay argued for the reasonable notion that the often forgotten role of Lord Durham contributed to the establishment of Dominion of Canada as much as the monumental and well-documented subsequent efforts of Macdonald.
Although Lord Durham thought that it would have been even more effective if the Maritimes had been included, the 1840 Act of Union was intended to assimilate French-Canadians into English Canada and thereby eliminating the racial tensions which caused disorder in the colony.
Sir John A. Macdonald became the main spokesman for Confederation partly for the purpose of political survival.
