Charles Pratt, Lord Camden, (1714-1794).Attorney General 1757. Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas. Lord chancellor 1766-70. During the trial of John Wilkes for sedition he declared common warrants illegal and as a result achieved much popularity.
Lord Brougham said of him- His unwearied patience, his unbroken suavity of manner, his unruffled calmness of temper.... went far to constitute the perfect judge.
As a lawyer and judge he was a leading proponent of civil liberties, championing the rights of the jury, and limiting the powers of the State.
He started the development of the area of London which was later to be called Camden Town
