Rev. Ferdinando Warner

From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878

« Sir James Ware | Index | Admiral Sir Peter Warren »

Warner, Ferdinando, Rev., LL.D., an English author, was born in 1703. He is styled by Chalmers "a judicious and useful writer, as well as a popular preacher." He was rector of Ronde, in Wiltshire; St. Michael, Queenhithe, in London; and Barnes, in Surrey. His History of Ireland, vol. i., (London, 1763), and History of the Rebellion and Civil Wars in Ireland (1767) are often referred to. The former, a quarto of 532 pp., brings down the history of the country to 1171; the latter (614pp.) deals exclusively with the years between 1641 and 1660. Both works have tolerably good indexes. He died 3rd October 1768, aged 65.
