The WARMAN Family of Berkshire
My Warman Ancestors
Warman (1900-1987) was born in Southampton, Hampshire,
although her father
Arthur Edward Warman
(1872-1918) was born in
and her mother
(1868-1952) in Wadhurst, Sussex. She married
William Charles Willard
(1894-1948) in 1920.
Arthur was 22 months old when his mother
Mary Elizabeth Webb
(1836-1874) died of Scarlet Fever and 14 years old when his father
(1832-1887) died from Pleurisy. His parents were both from primitive
methodist families. His mother was the daughter of
Elizabeth Ann Tyler (1810-1894) and was the eldest of 9 children.
After his mother's death, Arthur may been raised by his Webb Aunts and
Uncles, until he went to school at 78 Castle Street in Reading, Berkshire,
sometime before the recording of the 1881 census, along with his elder
brother, where they were boarders.
Arthur was a corn dealer's assistant when he married in 1896, a grocer's
porter in 1897 and a painter and decorator in 1900. He was the only
one of my direct line ancestors to have been killed in the First World War.
In about 1912 he went to Canada with the intention of settling there with
his family, which may have happened had be not been killed. The
Graves Commission lists the date he was killed and gives his
nationality as Canadian.
Arthur's father had been a carpenter, although his grandfather
(1804-1883) was a farmer, baker and grocers in the village of Beenham.
(1802-1878) of Brightwell, Berkshire. They were primitive methodist
and births of their children were registered in the registers of the Reading
George's parents were
Ann Brown (1762-1845). James's parents were
(1737-1805). And John was the son of Thomas Warman and
Hannah Fisher, which for the moment is where the trail ends.
