Gorham judgment, 1850. George Gorham (1787–1857) was an Anglican minister with a taste for antiquarian and theological pursuits and a leaning towards calvinist views on baptism. In 1847 Lord Chancellor Cottenham wished to present him to the living of Brampsford Speke in the diocese of Exeter, but the bishop, Henry Philpotts, refused. A protracted legal action then ensued, the Privy Council deciding in 1850 in favour of Gorham, whose supporters presented him with a silver tea service.
