John Patrick, a brother of Bishop Simon Patrick, was Prebendary of Peterborough, 1685; Precentor of Chichester, 1690; and preacher at the Charter-House, in the Chapel of which he was buried on his death, in 1695. His "Psalms of David, in Metre," were much used by Presbyterians and Independents until superseded by the compositions of Watts.
