subsequent: coming after something in time; following: "the theory was developed subsequent to the earthquake of 1906." consequent: following as a result or effect: "labor shortages would be created with a consequent increase in wages." consequential: 1 following as a result or effect: "there was a loss of confidence in the company and a consequential withdrawal of funds." or 2 important; significant: "perhaps the most consequential discovery of the eighteenth century."
