Patrick, John D.D., an English divine, brother of the succeeding, was born at Gainsborough, in Lincolnshire, about 1640, and was educated at Cambridge University. After taking holy orders he was preacher at the Charter-house, London. He died about the opening of the 18th century. Like his brother the bishop, Dr. John Patrick was a decided opponent of the papists.

Dr. Patrick also published The Psalms in metre (Lond. 1710, 12mo).
