William Warwick

Born 1833 Gateshead Durham.

Died 1891 London


After a lot of research I believe that William Warwick was the son of John Warwick and Mary Swaine or Swaine, in fact I am as certain as I can be about anything on this ancestry site. William and Hannah had 13 children, Hannah was born to Henry Smith and Jane Pitchforth.

They lived for a while in Yorkshire but eventually moved Durham where three of the children were born including William Warwick one of our direct ancestors. In the 1841 John there father is not living with them so appear to be away working or visting. By thet ime of the 1851 census only Joseph is still at home and both he and his father are down as Stonemasons. Unable to locate William in 1851 but by 1853 he marries Hannah Douglass Smith. Several other ancestry researchers have also been unable to find Williams location in 1851.

We know that by 1871 they  had moved from High Street, Gateshead, Durham to 27, Convent Gardens, Kensington where they remained until the 1881 census, by the time of the 1891 census they had moved to 98, Lancaster Road, Kensington and within a few months of the census aged 59 William died.

His father, John Warwick born 1801 in Yorkshire to John Warwick and Jane Pitchforth then married his mother Mary Swain or Swaine on the 7th April 1823 Sandal Yorkshire.

If this information is correct then John died in 1879 in Wakefield but was buried in Sandal Magna, South Yorkshire on the 25th June 1879.
