George Alfred Warren
« on: Friday 18 October 19 22:57 BST (UK) »
Hi, looking for some inspiration for George Alfred Warren born 1838 at 37 Baldwins Gardens, Holborn son of William Richard Warren (harness maker) and Eliza Backs.

Siblings of George:
1. William Alexander 1824-1825
2. Eliza Mary 1826-1898, married Thomas Shirley
3. Alexander Henry 1829-1835
4. Emma Ann 1834-1834
5. Edwin Wallace 1840-1845
6. Henry William 1836-1836

George is on the 1841 census as a 2 year old and the 1851 census as a 12 year old at school.
After that it is more difficult to find him, there is a George Alfred Warren on 1861 census at Gillingham, Medway, Kent as a 22 year old sapper in the Royal Engineers, born at St. Pancras.
I believe on the 1871 census he is a waiter, single, aged 32 working at Drury Lane.
After that I lose him and haven't found him on any other censuses.
There is a death for a George Warren Q4, 1883, District of St. George Hanover Square, age 45, born 1838.

If anyone has a suggestion where I should look for my missing man it would be much appreciated.

Jamjar,

That proposed marriage was in 1865, so he should not be a single waiter in 1871.

Have you found him with Sarah and any children in 1871 or 1881 etc?

Added:
The George who married in 1865 has father Thomas, a customs officer, so wrong man.

Hi,

Sorry his brother was Edwin William, not Edwin Wallace, that was a typo error.

There is an Alfred George Warren, who married Mary Ann Gough in 1865, he was a window blind maker, and had a brother Joseph with same occupation.

I haven't been able to find a marriage for George Alfred Warren.

'I believe on the 1871 census he is a waiter, single, aged 32 working at Drury Lane.'

There's a George Alfred Warren married Sarah Day in 1865, Hackney - they move to Ontario - but at death his father is listed as Thomas and he was born about 1842 so perhaps the Cambridge birth?

There's George Alfred Warren died 1873 in Bethnal Green - aged 38 which is a little off but perhaps?

I have wondered about that death in Bethnal Green also, between it and the St. George death in 1883. I haven't ordered the death certificate up till now as I couldn't decide which was my best option and the informant might be a name unrelated to the family, particularly if he is still a single man.
