Sir Armine Wodehouse was MP for Norfolk. His neighbours, George Walpole, 3rd Earl of Orford (Lord-Lieutenant of Norfolk) and George Townshend, MP (later 4th Viscount Townsend), were the moving forces behind the controversial Militia Bill. The establishment of the militia as a county-based military force soon after the outbreak of the Seven Years' War (1756–1763) owed much to the dissatisfaction of English country gentry with the Hanoverian dynasty.
