Second Generation: Robert Warner < William Warner

Robert was the son of William Warner and Elizabeth White. He was born in Howden, Yorkshire on June 25, 1785 and baptized there on July 24 of the same year.1

It is not clear what became of Robert. We know that there was a Robert Warner living in the village of Riccall, Yorkshire in 1826, because he and his wife Elizabeth had their son William baptized there on December 31 of that year.2

Riccall is about eleven miles from Howden and our Robert would have been forty-one at the time, so this may be him. We don’t have enough evidence to be sure.
