adullamites - Name given in derision to those members of the Liberal Party, forty or so in number, who, in 1860, left their colleagues rather than agree to Earl Russell's proposals for parliamentary reform. The most prominent of these was Robert Lowe, afterwards Viscount Sherbrooke, and their defection led to the resignation of Russell's ministry. The name was due to John Bright, who likened the dissentients to the distressed, the debtors, and the discontented, who flocked to David in the cave of Adullam (1 Sam. 22).
