Capel Street Dublin
at the beginning of the 19th Century
Warren branch in Ireland has been traced back to Dublin at the beginning
of the 19th century. Phillip Warren
was born in Dublin between 1801 and 1805, son of Thomas Warren, a Framework
Knitter. As yet we are unsure whether the Warren family were settled here
or just passing through, however the family were Catholic and so this
points to Irish origins. He married Deborah Jelley in about 1826, however
the marriage has yet to be traced. Jelley is a rare name in Ireland and
is generally confined to the North.
Phillip and Deborah
had two children before leaving Ireland. Thomas was born in 1828 and Peter
in 1830. By 1831 the family had settled in Nottingham in England and Deborah
had given birth to their first daughter, Mary Ann. Mary Ann was baptised
in the Catholic Church of St John the Evangelist in Oct 1831. The family
had five children in total being joined by James in 1836 and Maria in
Deborah died of pneumonia in 1844 leaving Phillip to look after the children.
Phillip is described as a Framework Knitter, like his father, and it may
be possible that he was involved in the textile trade before leaving Ireland.
In fact there had been a severe slump in the Irish linen industry in the
the late 1830's and it could have been this that drove the family to leave
for England. Phillip married quickly again after Deborah's death. In March
1845 he married Bridgett Collins, a widow and dughter of a tailor. It
is not certain what became of Bridgett and by 1851 Phillip has met and
is living with another partner Ann Poulson (nee Pratt) and has moved to
Loughborough, a local framework knitting centre.
Census, Barlow's Row, Loughborough
Phillip appears to
marry Ann Poulson and the family are living together in Nottingham shortly
before Phillip's death from Brights Disease in 1863.
Phillip and Deborah's
daughter Mary Ann does not appear to be living with her father in 1851
and has not been traced in the 1861 Census either. She reappears again
with her marriage to Thomas Peck in
Sneinton in April 1871. They have 6 children between 1867 and 1878 although
it is not entirely clear whether Thomas is the father of the oldest two
children. Eliza Peck is the first
child born after their marriage in September 1871.
