Excerpt from Philip Duke of Wharton: 1698 1731

The career of Philip, Duke of Wharton, is unique and sad. Born to inherit a name which will always live in its country's annals for patriotism, he had only to continue in the paths his forefathers had followed to have become one of the greatest men of his time. This should have been easy to one so amply gifted by nature with genius and wit.

The Duke was, however, a melancholy example of a name which in one generation was all but a watchword in the cause of Liberty, as well as devotion to the Protestant Succession; and in the next the scorn of those who had known the former efforts of its bearers for freedom. Unfortunately, Wharton was wanting in stability of character, an attribute that had crowned his patriotic father's career with success.

That one so constituted, and noted for a "lust for praise," should have early departed from the ways of his fathers is not a matter for surprise. He did, indeed, adhere to them for a brief time at the outset of his career, and for this early endeavour to wear his father's mantle he was created a duke, by a Sovereign who fully appreciated his father's exertions on behalf of his House.
