About Joseph Lupton

Joseph Lupton (1816–1894) was a committed Liberal, on the executive of the National Reform Union. Like many of his family, he was a leading Unitarian, serving as president and later vice-president of Manchester New College, the training college for ministers, during the 1880s and 1890s, helping to plan and finance its move from London to Oxford. He was a passionate anti-slavery campaigner, joining with the minister of Mill Hill Chapel, Charles Wicksteed, in being "ardent admirers" of the campaigner William Lloyd Garrison, who advocated immediate, not gradual, abolition.

He also supported the campaign for votes for women, sitting on the committee for the National Society for Women's Suffrage.

Joseph married Eliza Buckton (1818–1901) in 1842.
