Waring succeeded to his father’s seat at Bishop’s Castle at the general election of 1689. Though probably a Tory, he did not vote to agree with the Lords that the throne was not vacant, and he was appointed to no committees in the Convention. He lost his seat at the general election, but regained it on the death of his supplanter, Richard Mason. Under his will, dated 10 July 1724 and proved 14 Aug., Owlbury passed to a cousin of the same name who was returned for Bishop’s Castle as a Tory in 1755.3
