I managed to get a copy of Horace's Death Certificate today. It indicates that he was born in Brighton in 1867. His fathers name was Richard and his mother Maria Postlewhaite. My apologies for supplying incorrect information at the start of this thread.
Paternal - Hastings / Morley
Maternal - Hunt / Wilton

Hello Christopher! My name is Scott Andrew Hastings b 1984, direct descendant of Horace Warner.

As it happens, I have a degree in history and have spent the last three months tracing my direct ancestors.

Like you, i had record that Horace's parents were Richard Hastings and Maria Postlewhaite

Horace lived in Ballarat East where he had several children before moving to Melbourne where he had my direct ancestor, Frank Launcelot Hastings. Your information is correct that he married Phoebe Smith.

Frank was a soldier in WWI with the 32nd Australian battalion, which saw action in 1917-1918 in the areas of Passchendale and Ypres, both in Belgium. He died in 1990 and was cremated, the marker is at Springvale. If possible I suggest you look up Springvale Botanical Cemetery as many Hastings and relatives are in there. Frank's son was also Frank, my grandfather.

I will keep you posted with anything more I can find about Horace, Richard, Maria Postlewhaite, or Phoebe Smith.

Hastings, Postlewhaite, Trellaggan, Gregory, Curlis, Reilly, Fewster, de-Young, Rashley/Rashleigh, Basset, Cornfoot

age differs -but could this be Horace??
and maybe he added "Hastings" to his name when he went to Australia??????

Park St
Brighton Sussex
Richard Warner head M 43 general lab Brighton Sussex
Maria wife 46 Somertown London
Horace son 8 scholar Brighton Sussex

so if this is the correct Horace -he possibly named his son Frank after his brother?

1881 Horace was living with his married sister

Marriage
26 Jan 1879 Brighton Sussex
Kate maria Warner age 23
father Richard Warner
William Watson age 20
father Thomas Warner

1881
Wichelo Place Brighton Sussex
William Watson Head M 22 Coppersmith on Railway
Kate maria wife 24
Thomas son 1
HORACE WARNER brother in law 19 Meter Maker Gas Works
all b Brighton
RG11 1084 58 18

I cannot find Horace after this census ?

His brother Frank was a servant in 1881 census - he then went on to marry and called his first son Horace!!!

Maybe Horace knocked a few years off his age to join the army ???

I think the sister he lives with in 1881 had knocked a few years off her age -poss cos of younger husband???

Hope this helps

I have found theses baptisms on familysearch

All to parents Richard and Maria Warner
6 Nov 1853 St Nicholas brighton
Maria Christiana Warner (possibly she is Kate Maria in 1881 ??)

Maude warner 7 dec 1856 St Nicholas Brighton

Emma Jane Warner 2 Oct 1859 St Nicholas Brighton

Richard Erneast Warner5  Oct 1851 Brighton

Horace warner
Frank Warner
5 Mar 1865 St John Brighton

also -possibly Maria Postlethwaite was really maria Batchelor??

FreeBMD shows Maria Batchelor on same page as Richard Warner

family search shows
Marriage
14 April 1849
St Nicholas Brighton Sussex
Richard Warner  father Richard warner
Maria Batchelor no father's name given

so maybe Maria was illegit daughter of Amelia  -who married Edward Postlethwaite?????

Wonder if Horace was in some kind of trouble - so he added another surname and altered his age ??? It has been done before??
