The We of John Warne, Bishop of Rochester, 1637 - 1666. By

Edward Lee-Warner. (Mitchell and Hughes.)—Bishop Warner seems to have been one of the prelates who, under the leadership of Archbishop Laud, made the Church of England more unpopular than it has ever been at any other time. Personally there was much that was admirable about him. He was not careless of money, but be was generous with it, and that in his lifetime. His posthumous charity is witnessed by the foundation of Bromley College. Mr. Lee-Warner, who claims the Bishop as a collateral of his own ancestry, has taken pains to collect accurate information about him.
