The Scottish Nation

WARRENDER, a surname evidently originally derived from the chase, borne by a family possessing a baronetcy, the first of whom, George Warrender, Esq. of Lochend, East Lothian, M.P., an eminent merchant in Edinburgh, and lord-provost of that city in the reigns of King William, Queen Anne, and George I., was created a baronet of Great Britain June 2, 1715. His son, Sir John, 2d baronet, dying in 1773, was succeeded by his only surviving son, Sir Patrick, 3d baronet. This gentleman, born March 7, 1731, served as a cavalry officer at the battle of Minden. He was afterwards M.P. for the Haddington burghs, and king’s remembrancer in the court of Exchequer in Scotland. On his death, in 1799, his elder son, Sir George, born Dec. 5, 1782, became 4th baronet. He graduated at Christ church, Oxford, and in 1822 was sworn a privy councilor. Dying in 1849, he was succeeded by his brother, sir John, fifth baronet, born in 1786, married first in 1823, a daughter of James, earl of Lauderdale, by whom he had a son and a daughter; and 2dly, in 1831, a sister of Lord Alvanley. His daughter, Helen Catherine, married in 1854, George Baillie, Esq., younger of Mellerstain and Jerviswoode, Berwickshire, who, on his father succeeding to the earldom of Haddington in 1858, became Lord Binning. The son, George, at one period a captain in the Coldstream Guards, married in 1854, Helen, only child of Sir Hugh Hume Campbell of Marchmont, baronet.
