1826 Richard Warner

REV. RICHARD WARNER, (1763–1857), antiquary

Revd Joseph Hunter, the Unitarian minister of Bath and a fellow antiquary, observed that ‘he was deep in no subject. He had read little, made no particular preparations for publication, and began to read in a subject only when he had previously determined to publish upon it’ (BL, Add. MS 26527, fol. 134). In the DNB Michael Hicks observes that 'his histories of Bath and Glastonbury were useful compilations, but they left their subjects as Warner had found them.'
