Walter Warner

Walter Warner (* ~ 1557; † 1643) studied at Oxford. Despite wide-ranging interests, he was mainly concerned with chemistry and medicine. Henry Percy engaged him to support his alchemical experiments. He did not publish during his lifetime, but was well known and respected in academic circles.

He could be the Warner with whom Marlowe kept company, according to Thomas Kyd. Another candidate for this would be William Warner.
