1670, Dec 41742, Jun 18
a British politician, notable for his involvement in the South Sea Bubble and for creating the water garden at Studley Royal. Aislabie was elected as a member of parliament for Ripon in 1695, apparently on the assumption he was a Tory, though his political views were somewhat fluid. He became more active in politics from 1704, especially on the economy. He eventually became associated with the Country Whigs. Under the patronage of Robert Harley he was appointed a Lord of the Admiralty from 1710 in the Tory administration.
