Footnotes

Sir Patience Warde was an English merchant and early Whig politician. He was elected Lord Mayor of London in 1680.

On 10 June 1646 he was apprenticed for eight years to Launcelot Tolson, Merchant Taylor and Merchant Adventurer, of St Helen's, Bishopsgate, with whom he lived until his marriage on 8 June 1653. He later set up in business for himself in a portion of the ancient mansion known as 'Manor of the Rose' and which formerly belonged to Sir John Pulteney. On completing his apprenticeship he became a freeman of the Merchant Taylors' Company, becoming Master of the company in 1671.

Warde was elected sheriff in 1670, and on 18 October in the same year became alderman for the ward of Farringdon Within. On 29 October 1675, Warde, with other aldermen, was knighted. He was elected Lord Mayor on Michaelmas day 1680.

Warde became a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1682. On 19 May 1683, he was tried for perjury in connection with the action brought by James, Duke of York against Sir Thomas Pilkington for scandalum magnatum. After much conflicting evidence he was found guilty and fled to Holland. During his exile abroad he was in constant communication with Thomas Papillon, the sheriff-elect of 1682, who had also been driven into exile. A portion of their correspondence is printed by Mr. A. F. W. Papillon in his

Memoirs of Thomas Papillon

, (1887, pp. 336–347).

On 10 February 1688, Warde pleaded his Majesty's pardon by attorney for his conviction of perjury.

The accession of William III restored him to full favour and honour. He was elected one of the four city members to serve in the convention summoned to meet on 22 January 1689. At the next election, in February 1690, Warde and the other three Whig candidates lost their seats. He was appointed Colonel of the Blue Regiment of the Trained Bands on 31 March 1689, and on 19 April a commissioner for managing the customs. He lost his colonelcy in 1690, the Church Party being once more in a majority, but was re-elected on the ascendancy of the Whigs in 1691. On 24 March 1695–6, he was compelled through illness to give up his office of commissioner of customs, but recovered sufficiently to resume his duties on 9 April.

Warde died on 10 July 1696, and was buried in the south corner of the chancel of St Mary Abchurch, where a mural monument to his memory was set up. There is a full-length portrait of Warde in his mayoral robes at Merchant Taylors' Hall, and a small watercolour copy in the Guildhall Library, London.

As there was no issue from Warde's marriage, Sir Patience left his manor of Hooton Pagnell to his grand-nephew.
