Third Generation: Elizabeth Roberts Warner < William Warner < William Warner

My 3rd great grandaunt (great great great great aunt)

Elizabeth Roberts (or Robarts) Warner was the daughter of William Warner and his wife Hannah Benson.* She was born about 1816 and baptized in Howden, Yorkshire on July 24, 1816.1 2

If she survived childhood, Elizabeth would have emigrated to Lower Canada with her parents sometime between 1827 and 1830, settling on land near the town of Frampton.

No further information about her has been found.


* The source for this information is a transcription of a handwritten baptismal record from Howden, Yorkshire. The record says that Elizabeth was the daughter of William Warner and his wife Hannah (no maiden name given). Howden was not a large town, and nothing has been found to suggest that it was home to more than one couple named William and Hannah Warner. Elizabeth’s middle name was transcribed as “Robarts” but it was probably “Roberts,” given that Roberts was a name that already ran in the Warner family. Elizabeth’s uncle was John Roberts Warner.
