    More Information:

    Tomline, Sir George Pretyman, fifth baronet (1750-1827), bishop of Winchester and political adviser. "The appointment of Pitt as prime minister in December 1783 and his success in the general election the following spring gave Pretyman access to political influence. Pitt appointed him to what was in effect the post of private secretary, although he avoided use of that term lest it hinder Pretyman's career in the church. ..Pretyman secured his reward when at the age of thirty-six he became bishop of Lincoln...in 1799 he published his two-volume Elements of Christian Theology, a work dedicated to Pitt and designed for Anglican ordinands. Its lucidity and accessibility earned it considerable popularity and it reached a twelfth edition in 1818...." [Oxford DNB]
