Portrait of Arthur Atherley as an Etonian, by sir Thomas Lawrence, c1791.
Arthur Atherley (12 June 1772 – 1 October 1844) was an English Member of Parliament, serving the Southampton constituency three times, as Whig, Liberal and Reformer.
Atherley was born in Southampton, the son of Arthur Atherley and Susanna Carter, and was the fifth successive member of the Atherley family to be baptised as “Arthur”. He was educated at Eton College where, in 1791, he had his portrait painted by Sir Thomas Lawrence – this portrait now hangs in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. At Eton, he was captain of the Ad Montem club, an institution with roots to medieval times that survived until 1847. One of the club’s traditions was to take part in a procession to Salt Hill during which boys in fancy costume, the salt bearers, participated in the maintenance of their “captain” at university by levying contributions from passers-by.
