Thomas Warren.

According to L&M he was a merchant of St Olave's parish; brother of Sir William. Consul at Salli 1654-56 and possibly later; in the 60's trading to Tangier and Madeira. He was possibly also the Thomas Warren who traded to the Baltic, where in 1664 he represented Eastland Company at Danzig.

Aug. 3. 1668
Warrant
to pay to Thos. Warren, merchant, from the customs of the Port of London,
5,500l., for services in procuring a peace between the King and the King of
Morocco.
[S.P. Dom., Car. II. 244, No. 81.]

But it doesn’t mention any 1668 peace treaty with Charles II.

What’s the betting this is the same Thomas Warren that L&M tells us was a
merchant of St. Olave's parish; brother of Sir William Warren?
As the former Consul at Sallee (1654-56 and possibly later), this Thomas Warren would know the right people to negotiate such a treaty.
