Wilberforce: Family and Friends. His family life brought him both happiness and anxiety. Convinced that he had been 'too long a Bachelor', he lacked confidence in his ability to be a good husband and father.

His family life brought him both happiness and anxiety. A great deal has been written about Wilberforce's role in the abolition of the slave trade, but far less about his private life.

William Wilberforce, the campaigner who first worked for the abolition of the slaveĀ . But this book isn't exactly a biography

William Wilberforce, the campaigner who first worked for the abolition of the slave trade in the British Empire and then for the end of slavery, must have been good company. The multi-dimensional private man whom Anne Stott presents in admirable detail was a cheerful optimist. He was also principled, slight of stature and he adored his wife and children. But this book isn't exactly a biography. Clearly related to Stott's 2003 book Hannah More: The First Victorian, it is a study of the circles in which Wilberforce lived and worked "with the emphasis as much on gender, sexuality, intimacy and feelings as on the great public causes", as she explains.

In her innovative study, Anne Stott casts fresh light on the abolitionist and his friends, the group of Evangelical philanthropists retrospectively named the Clapham sect. While the men occupied important public roles they were also deeply committed to the ideal of domesticity

Stott is the author of Wilberforce: Family and Friends. I saw the portrait loaded by Thincat on the cover of Wilberforce: Family and Friends and had started the process of uploading it myself but then found the other portrait was already in Commons and so started with that. I propose to immediately delete the image in question from this article, as there is now no doubt that this image is of the wrong person. Agendum (talk) 20:41, 31 October 2018 (UTC). The Wilberforce/Spooner family was quite extended and I agree that there was more than one Barbara. Andrew D. (talk) 14:16, 22 April 2019 (UTC).

At the age of thirty-seven, after a very short courtship, William Wilberforce married Barbara Spooner, the daughter of a Midlands industrialist, and their first child was born in the following year. His family life brought him both happiness and anxiety. Convinced that he had been 'too long a Bachelor', he lacked confidence in his ability to be a good husband and father. A great deal has been written about Wilberforce's role in the abolition of the slave trade, but far less about his private life. Yet this is the man who exchanged his prestigious Yorkshire constituency for an undemanding pocket borough in order to devote himself to his family. In her innovative study, Anne Stott casts fresh light on the abolitionist and his friends, the group of Evangelical philanthropists retrospectively named the Clapham sect. While the men occupied important public roles they were also deeply committed to the ideal of domesticity. The ideology of the period depicted the middle-class home as a place of tranquil retreat from the cares and temptations of public life, though the family crises depicted in this study show that the reality was always more complex. With varying degrees of success, the Clapham men and women brought their Evangelical piety to their patterns of courtship and marriage, their philosophy of child-rearing, and their strategies in coping with death and bereavement. For the first time, much of this story is told from the perspective of the wives, and it is primarily through their voices that the book's themes of the family, women and gender, childhood and education, sexuality, and intimacy are explored.
