Abstract Hugh Warden was born in the Scottish town of Alyth, near Perth, in November 1745. At the age of 16, he was apprenticed to a merchant in Perth, but left after two years without completing the term of his apprenticeship. He was subsequently apprenticed to a grocer from Dundee named George Wright. After serving for 15 months, Warden was sent to Virginia to assist in the oversight of Wright's business affairs. He returned to Britain some time before 1782 and married Mary Keeft in London in 1784. Hugh Warden's diary, 1782, discusses various aspects of life in late 18th-century Scotland. It provides descriptions of his schooling, his early vocational training and terms of apprenticeship, and social customs of the period. In addition, there are brief discussions of relations between various religious sects, stories of personal interactions with friends and acquaintances of the Warden family, and an extensive description of Warden's 1762 voyage to Virginia. Also included is a typed transcription of the diary with explanatory footnotes and genealogical notes from the Warden family Bible.
