He is described in a memoir as being uninterested in "passing political problems... The clash of parties was distasteful to his temperament... He became more conservative and more reserved about political subjects as he grew older, and some of his earlier opinions were changed". He died in Cambridge and was buried at the Parish of the Ascension Burial Ground in Cambridge. (en)
