Phillip WHARTON (4 B. Wharton)

Born: 8 Apr 1613, Wharton Hall, Kirkby Stephen, Westmorland, England

Died: 5 Feb 1696, Hampstead

Notes: Following William Paget, 5 B. Beaudaserts defection, Parliament appointed him as Lieutenant for Buckinghamshire. He was also Lieutenant of Westmorland, where his ancestral estates lay and Lancashire. He was a rigid Puritan and up to 1648 was continuously employed as soldier, politician and diplomat. After the Kings execution, he retired from public life, though remaining a personal friend of Cromwell. The office of Lieutenant appears to have lapsed during the Protectorate, but Wharton emerged again in 1660, hoping much from the Restoration, but was often in trouble as he would not deviate from his Presbyterian principles. He was sent to the Tower with Lord Shaftesbury in 1676 and withdrew to the continent when James II acceded to the throne. He was one of the first to declare for William III and was rewarded by being made a Privy Councillor in 1969. He was buried at Wooburn, having acquired the great house there, a former palace of the Bishops of Lincoln, through his second marriage.
