Born on April 22, 1801, and christened Fox as a compliment to the great Whig, he served for a term in the army, and then in 1835 entered the House of Commons as member for Perthshire. In Lord Melbourne's ministry (183 5-41) Maule was under-secretary for home affairs, and under Lord John Rus sell he was secretary-at-war from July 1846 to Jan. 1852, when for two or three weeks he was president of the boa rd of control. In April 1852 he became the end Baron Panmure, and was secretary of State for war from being at the war office during the concluding period of the Crimean War and having to meet a good deal of criticism, both just and unjust. In Dec. 186o he succeeded his kinsman, the marquess of Dalhousie, as 11th earl of Dalhousie, and died childless on July 6, 1874. On his death the barony became extinct, but his earldom passed to his cousin, George Ramsay (1806-8o), an admiral who, in 1875, was created a peer of the United Kingdom as Baron Ramsay.
See the Panmure Papers, a selection from Panmure's correspondence, edited in two vols. (1908) , by Sir G. Douglas and Sir G. D. Ramsay. These letters throw much light on the concluding stage of the Crimean War.
