Eighth Generation: Michelle Denise Puddicombe < James Rix Warner < Cecil James Warner < Harold Rix Warner < James Warner < William Warner< William Warner < William Warner

My 2nd cousin (stepdaughter of my 1st cousin once removed)

Michelle Denise “Shelley” Puddicombe was the daughter of Ruth Irene Allen Puddicombe and James Rix Warner. She was born on March 31, 1965 and died in Newmarket on April 21, 2006, at the age of 41. She was buried at the Newmarket Cemetery.


Given that her last name is Puddicombe, like her mother’s, and that her mother’s maiden name is Allen, it appears that Shelley was the child of her mother’s previous marriage to a man named Puddicombe. Unfortunately, I have found no information about this marriage.

Shelley’s obituary, her gravestone, and her father’s obituary all say that she is the daughter (not the stepdaughter!) of James Warner. In this spirit, I include her as James’s daughter, and my second cousin, in this Warner family tree.
