Clans

Introduction

The main activity of the Warburton One-name Study is to document Warburton clans. A clan consists of all the Warburton descendants of an earliest known ancestor. A clan will also share a similar Y-chromosome DNA profile. Where a new profile is known to have been introduced through adoption or illegitimacy a new sub-clan is created, linked to the original clan. Similarly two or more clan may be shown to have a similar DNA profile that shows they are linked, although the exact nature of the link may be unknown. In some cases a clan may not yet have a known DNA profile, or sufficient profiles to prove it applies all the way back to the earliest known ancestor. In this case new profiles might change the clan structure.

Family trees normally focus on the ancestors of a living person. In contrast Clan trees focus on an historic figure and his descendants.  For each descendant  I will give, as a minimum, the name, known vital data (dates of birth, marriage and death), spouse, and children of each Warburton descendant. The tree will include the spouses of female Warburtons, and a note of their children where known, but the lines will be followed no further. My primary sources are parish records, censuses, birth, marriage and death registers and Monumental Inscriptions. I try to include information on any other sources, and any questionable data, within notes.

Each clan will have, or be part of, an on-line tree consisting of  Family Web Cards and Person Sheets, plus an Index and Surnames list. Warburton Trees Index is a more detailed index to all the trees which includes dates and places, and the clan to which the person belongs. Each clan will also have one or more Descendant Reports, which contain the contents of the tree in narrative form, and one or more Descendant Charts. These are in PDF format.

Combined Index

  • There are currently 8844 names, including 5836 Warburtons and 2 Warburton-Lyttons, in the various clans. These names are included in a Combined Index, a PDF document listing name, dates of birth, baptism, and death, place of birth, and clan. If you are looking for an ancestor and don’t know his clan then this is the place to start.

The Clans

The Cheshire Group:

The Warburtons of Arley Hall (the original Warburton family)

  • Ancestor: Adam de Dutton (c 1150 -1208).
  • Note: Sir Piers de Dutton adopted the name de Werberton in the 13th century and so is the oldest known Warburton. He in turn was descended from Adam de Dutton who acquired estates at Warburton in Cheshire. The original de Dutton was Odard who arrived in Cheshire with the Norman Conquest. The family moved to Arley Hall in the 15th century. The last Warburton at Arley Hall was Sir Peter, the fifth Baronet, who died childless in 1813.
  • Acknowledgements: The most comprehensive version of the family tree of the Warburtons of Arley was published in 1819 by George Ormerod in his ‘The History of the County Palatine and City of Chester’. Much of this tree was repeated in ‘Warburton: The Village and the Family’ by Norman Warburton, published in 1970.  Additional material is from the Arley Hall Guide Book, ‘Seven Households’ by Charles Foster, a tree provided by the late Virginia Warburton, whose husband is descended from the Garryhinch Warburtons, and a website ‘martinrealm.org’ whose main source is ‘Burke’s Landed Gentry’. Also here are numerous entries relating to members of the family on IGI. Apart from a few actual records of baptisms this information, particularly in terms of dates, is dubious. However, some details, with the above caveats, have been added from IGI when they add to the information already known.

Hale Barns:

  • Ancestor: George Warburton (circa 1575-1639).
  • DNA Profile: H1112 (my own).
  • Note: This is my own tree and so has extensions that are not Warburtons. It originated in Hale Barns and was well established by 1600. My earliest certain ancestor is George (died 1639), but there is evidence his father was Thomas the Elder of Hale Barns who died in 1634. Only one of George’s sons, John Warburton (c1608-1691) had multiple sons (five) so all lines of descent meet with him.  They were originally a family of small landowners and tenant farmers and the farmhouse they occupied is still occupied by Warburtons today. The tree includes extensions that are reported in separate Descendant Reports and Charts. One, the Mobberley Clan is simply separated for reasons of size. The Ringley Clan is linked by DNA and is probably linked genealogically to the Mobberley Clan. The Descendant Chart is too big to be rendered in one chart and so has been split into three, one showing the earliest generations, the others showing the descendants of 2 sons of John Warburton (c1608-1691), that is Thomas and Josiah.
  • Acknowledgements: I built this tree from many sources, including Cheshire wills, Crewe Estate records, and parish records. I was greatly helped in the early days by others who had already explored this branch of Warburtons, particularly Sheila Hartley and Bill Warburton of Australia.

Mobberley

  • Ancestor: John Warburton (circa 1648-after 1729).
  • DNA Profile: .306676.
  • Note: This is a branch of the main Hale Barns clan that has been separated out for convenience John Warburton moved from Hale Barns to Mobberley around 1670.

Houghton

  • Ancestor: John Warburton (1734-1823)
  • DNA Profile: H1572, H1579.
  • Note: The Houghton Clan is descended from John Warburton of Houghton Green near Warrington. The most likely baptism for John was at Newchurch Kenyon. The closeness of the DNA match suggests John might link to the Hale Barns clan, but no exact link has yet been found.
  • Acknowledgements: The tree is an aggregation of trees from different sources. including input from three descendants of the clan, Brian and Don Warburton of British Colombia, and Peter Warburton from the UK, and the previously separate Widnes Clan incorporating the descendants of William Warburton of Widnes as defined by Karen Stretton, Martin Coble and Rebecca Stone.

Pennsylvania

  • Ancestor: George Warburton (circa 1575-1639)
  • DNA Profile: H1578.
  • Note: The Pennsylvania Clan originates with George Warburton and Mary Chandler. George is believed to be the son of George of Partington who was baptised at Warburton in 1674. The Pennsylvania branch was established when John Warburton and Mary nee Sadler took their family to America in 1816.
  • Acknowledgements: This tree is based on that recorded on the Sullivan County Settlers site by Lyle Rockwell and Larry Pardoe at: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~pasulliv/settlers/settlers53/settlers53.htm (refered to as the Settlers Site). They in turn took their information from the John & Mary Sadler Warburton Family Bible, and it particular the Diary (refered to as the Family Diary), in possession of their GGGgrandson George Robert Warburton, born in 1930, together with information from George on the descendants of George T. Warburton, son of John & Mary Warburton. I have added details and opinions to the early English generations, including additional material from Cathy Warburton of California.

Warrington (Hamlet)

  • Ancestor: Hamlet Warburton (died 1700)
  • DNA Profile: H1574.
  • Note: This clan comprises the descendants of Hamlet Warburton who was a smith in Warrington and Woolton. The name Hamlet is believed to be a derivative of Hamo, the name of 7 generations of the de Masci family of Dunham Massey. It is considered a marker for the Warburtons of Partington and so might imply kinship with that family.

Weaverham

  • Ancestor: Peter Warburton (bef 1747- aft 1778).
  • DNA Profile: 373609
  • Note: Peter Warburton probably came from Grappenhall but brought up his family in Weaverham, near Northwich, Cheshire. Various descendants moved to places such as Daresbury, Preston Brook,  and Thelwall, near the Lancashire border.  A descendant of the clan was Adrian Warburton whose exploits are described in Warburton’s War: The Life of Wing Commander Adrian Warburton, DSO, DFC by Tony Spooner. There is also an interesting Wikipedia entry for him.

Flintshire

  • Ancestor: Joseph Warburton who died before 1845, but is the recorded father of John (1809-1886).
  • DNA Profile: H1580
  • Note: This profile is from a descendant of John Warburton who was born circa 1809 in Holywell, Flintshire. The family moved to Frodsham, and then Everton in Liverpool. According to Norman Warburton’s book a Warburton family was recorded in Flintshire as early as 1408.

Altrincham

  • Ancestor: George Warburton of Altrincham (circa 1701-1781).
  • Note:  George’s origins are uncertain but he is possibly the son of Aaron and Jane and thus linked to the Hale Barns clan. The clan is therefore included in the Cheshire Group.

Ashley and Morley

  • Ancestor: Josiah Warburton of Altrincham (1715-1764).
  • Note:  Josiah’s origins are uncertain but he is possibly the Josiah son of John who was baptised in Northenden in 1715. The Josiah name, which occurs throughout the clan, and is frequently a glue which holds it together, makes it a reasonable possibility that this clan is linked to the Hale Barns clan. The clan is therefore included in the Cheshire Group. However it must be recognised that a number of links in the first couple of generations are  ‘most likely’ rather than proven. The clan desperately needs DNA confirmation.

The Descendants of Bancroft Warburton

  • Ancestor: John Bancroft  (c 1700 -1756) and Elizabeth Warburton (c 1715 – 1775)
  • Note: This family lived in the Great Sankey area of Lancashire, close to the Cheshire boarder (actually it is now part of modern day Manchester and Merseyside). The family is descended from Bancroft Warburton (1738-1805) who was christened at Bowdon in 1738, the illegitimate son of Elizabeth Warburton and John Bancroft. They married 10 years after Bancroft was born. John Bancroft was first married to Mary Warburton of the Hale Barns clan. It is likely that Elizabeth Warburton, Bancroft’s mother, and later John Bancroft’s second wife, was related to Mary (possibly a cousin) but this cannot be proved. Nevertheless despite Bancroft’s illegitimate birth the clan is included in the Cheshire group. I have written a set of notes on Bancroft which explore this possibility as well as other facts surrounding Bancroft’s origins.

Bury and Massachusetts

  • Ancestor: William Warburton (married in 1802).
  • DNA Profile: 316620. As well as the standard 37 marker test, the testee, Eric Warburton, has also done the Big Y test.
  • Note: This tree documents the descendants of William Warburton and Mary Yates who lived in various places around Bury, as well as for a time in Rochdale. One branch of the family emigrated to Massachusetts. Eric belongs to this branch.

  • Ancestor: Thomas Warburton (died after 1559).
  • DNA Profile: 408583. A 12 marker test showed a couple of differences but matched the key rare alleles. A SNP test for Z343 proved positive.
  • Note: The Warburtons of Edenfield have been documented back to the 16th century when they were described as Gentlemen, raising the possibility that they are a cadet branch of the Warburtons of Arley.

  • DNA Profile: 211606.
  • Note: The earliest records of this family are from the parish registers of St Marys, Bury but the family were located at Affetside and other locations in the Tottington area from circa 1717 onwards.

  • DNA Profile: 416619
  • Note: This is the second Utah family with origins in Haslingden from the paper in the LDS archives by Eva Warburton Proctor.  It cannot yet be linked back beyond the parents of John, who emigrated to Utah. Also it is not linked to the first family as Eva thought, though there might be a link at Haslingden further back in time.

Haslingden and Radcliffe

  • Ancestors: Robert Warburton of Haslingden (died 1694) and William Warburton of Radcliffe (circa 1718-1777)
  • DNA Profile: 225866 (Haslingden) and H1584 (Radcliffe).
  • Note: This tree includes a marriage between two Warburton families, one from Haslingden and one from Radcliffe, which according to DNA were already related. The two families are charted separately. The Haslingden side is further divided into 2 for reasons of size (Charts 1a and 1b).  The Haslingden family has been constructed on a best fit basis from parish records, and ignores a similar but different construction found on IGI. The Utah branch of the Haslingden Warburtons is based on a paper in the LDS archives by Eva Warburton Proctor (sent me by Margo Duran). It described two Warburton immigrants to Utah as half-brothers but it transpires she combined two separate families. Both originated in Haslingden and so may be related, though the link has yet to be found (the second family is described in the Haslingden and Utah clan).

Tilston

  • Ancestor: John Warburton (died 17323).
  • DNA Profile: 465030. Profile 224095 is also from this clan but is believed to be the result of a non-paternal event .
  • Note: This was formerly the Shocklach clan until it was discovered that two key members of the clan were more probably descended from a family at Tilston. Tilston and  Shocklach are neighbouring parishes in the south west corner of Cheshire near the Welsh and Shropshire boarders.  This is the main family of a number of possibly related families in the surrounding villages. It incorporates the descendants of Thomas Warburton (born 1848), the illegitimate son of Elizabeth, though which of two possible Elizabeths is uncertain.
  • Acknowledgements: The tree is based on information from Robert Warburton that had been collected by his father and himself over a number of years. Additional information has been provided by Richard Warburton, Diana Corbyn, Hilary Williams, and Paul Straney.

  • DNA Profile: There are three DNA Profiles, H1565 and H1577 which match, and H1569 which doesn’t match. One or both of these profiles must be from a non-paternal event, but as yet it is not possible to determine which.
  • Note: The Warburtons of Warburton Village are a very large clan, with over 700 Warburtons. Much of it was documented by Norman Warburton (himself a member) in his book Warburton: The Village and the Family. I have added to it from other sources, including my own researches into censuses. It includes one of the Warburton families of Sullivan County, Pennsylvania, another branch in California, and branches in Yorkshire and Staffordshire. Because of its size the tree has been split across nine charts.
  • Chart structure: Chart 1 shows the first 6 generations. From this chart only William, who first married Priscilla Ashton, and then Joan Cartwright, has descendants. Chart 2 shows his descendants from Priscilla Ashton. Two large families are broken out into Charts 3 and 9. Each of these has one of the matching DNA profiles. Chart 4 shows Williams descendants with Joan Cartwright, and includes the non-matching DNA profile. Four families have broken out into Charts 5-8.

Garryhinch:

  • Ancestor: Richard Warburton (16th century).
  • DNA Profiles: H1566, H1571, 241263.
  • Note: Richard Warburton (1637-1717), who acquired considerable lands in Ireland, including the estate at Garryhinch, west of Dublin, was one of three brothers who went to find their fortune in Ireland in the middle of the seventeenth century. Their father was  Richard of Dublin who is attested in the 1630s. The family has always claimed kinship with the Warburtons of Arley, with Richard of Dublin possibly being a grandson of Peter, the ancestor of the Warburtons of Hefferston Grange. However the clan’s DNA profile, although triangulated to cover the whole clan, has not been matched outside it. Portarlington Golf Club was built on the old Garryhinch estate and their website includes some of the family’s history. The family has produced a number of interesting characters and their descendants are spread around the world.
  • Acknowledgements: This tree has been compiled from a number of sources, some contradictory. These include a handwritten tree obtained from the late Virginia Warburton, which is based in part on Burke’s Landed Gentry of Great Britain and Ireland for 1852, detailing the descendants of George Warburton of Aughrim, of whom her husband, Thomas Egerton Warburton, was one. I obtained a tree prepared for James Arthur Warburton of Prince Edward Island, Canada, by Conrad Swan, York Herald of Armsdated 1st July 1976, together with a memoir written by James Arthur. I also used the Burke’s Colonial Gentry entry for Henry Hume Warburton of Vancouver, British Colombia,  a tree submitted to www.islandregister.com (the island being Prince Edward Island) by Gary Carroll, and The Royal Ark website by Christopher Buyers, specifically the entry for the Durrani dynasty at: http://www.royalark.net/Afghanistan/warburto.htm. Recent additions have included details from Controller of Devils by G,D.Martineau, the story of John Paul Warburton, and a biography of PGE (Eliot) Warburton MC, plus information provided by Gary Merrili.

Mongan Warburtons

  • Ancestor: Dominic O’Mungan  (1715- c1774).
  • DNA Profile: Mongon profile provided privately from the Australian Mongan familly (see Mongon in Interesting Non-Warburton DNA Results).
  • Note: In 1792 Charles Mongan, the future Bishop of Cloyne, changed his name to Warburton, the name of his maternal cousins.  His descendants form  a second clan of Irish Warburtons, though it is not yet known if Charles’s cousins are of the Garryhinch clan. Meanwhile Charles’s brother John is head of a family who retained the Mongan name, which is an anglicised version of their father’s name of O’Mungan. They have provided a DNA profile which may also be that of the Mongan Warburtons.

  1. Good day Ray et al,
    I began my search a couple of years ago, but ‘life’ sort of got in the way and I’m now just getting back to it and would be curious if some of my links connect with others.
    My Warburton ancestors beginning with my grandfather are:
    Thomas Warburton 1891-1977 (died in Canada)
    William Buckley Orton Warburton 1849-1912 (died in Chester)
    Samuel Warburton 1812-1893 (died in Tarvin, Cheshire)
    Samuel Warburton 1780-1814 (died in Burton Cheshire)
    William Warburton (no dates) was married to Mary as far as I know but have no maiden name).
    My family history centers around Chester including place names as noted above as well as Boughton, Hoole, and Plemstall, Kelsall, Delamere and surroundings.
    It’s been several years since I have visited but am looking forward to 2014 with more history ‘under my belt’ and so if anyone connects to any of the above, I’d be delighted to be in touch.
    I started my website a couple of years ago, but never got beyond what you see; however, the interesting part of further searching discovered a great aunt & great uncle lost to current family members, and subsequently I have now met a half dozen NEW second cousins on-line which has certainly enhanced the fun in searching.
    Lastly, Samuel (above 1812-1893) was connected to Burton Hall and farmed a number of the pieces of land. I have also visited Burton Hall several times which has been undergoing a major renovation to a very ‘up market’ status.
    So, I’m now playing catch up and am looking forward to many more hours of searching for those both ‘Dead & Alive’ !! 🙂

  2. Interested in Warburtons for my grandson-in-law. Records show that Thomas Warburton was born 1852-54 in Somerset, England, and married in NSW Australia in 1888 to Isabella Mockett. There were 4 children, 3 sons and 1 daughter, born between 1890 and 1901 in country NSW. I will do some more researching – does anyone else have any more information about the English connections?

  3. Hello. I am looking for any more information on my Warburton family tree. It seems that I cannot find a death date for James Warburton and the only information I can find on William Warburton is as listed as Henry Warburton’s father on his marriage license. I would like to go as far back as possible. Here is what I have:
    (Me) Melissa Warburton (1982 Nova Scotia, Canada)
    (My father) Lawrence Edward Warburton (1959 Nova Scotia-2003 Nova Scotia)
    married Colleen Ann Petrie
    (My grandfather) Gordon Francis Warburton (1919 Nova Scotia-1999 Nova Scotia)
    married Regina McLeod
    (My great-gf) John James Warburton (1879 Nova Scotia-1960 Nova Scotia)
    married Veronica Petrie
    (My great-great-gf) James Warburton (1851 Liverpool-? Nova Scotiia)
    married Jane MacLeod
    (My g-g-great-gf) Henry Warburton (1824 Liverpool – 1899 Liverpool)
    married Jane Johnson
    (My g-g-g-great-gf) William Warburton (?-?)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. 🙂

  4. Hello

    I have been browsing through this site and can confirm that I am descended from the ‘Bolton/Turton Clan’ of Warburtons
    You list on the site Luke and Catherine – with two children Roy and Geoffrey.
    Roy married and had two children – myself (Catherine) born in 1953 and my brother Gary, born 1951

    Sadly Roy died in 1955

    hope this is of interest to you in your work

    Regards
    Catherine

    1. Thank you. That is very interesting. I don’t normally put living people on the trees unless they specifically ask.

      Also one of the DNA results from my Lancashire group of matching DNA results is from the Sharples/Bolton/Halliwell area but I haven’t built that clan yet and I haven’t attached it to one of the existing Turton clans.

  5. Hi Ray,

    I have some additions to make to the Garryhinch report chart. Please contact me when you can!

    Kind regards,

    Tom Warburton Jr

  6. My gt grandmother was Margaret Warburton born 1813 in Tarvin, Cheshire, She married Ellis Davies, tea dealer of Liverpool, Lancs., On their wedding cert., she states her father was William Warburton, farmer. Would be so appreciative of any information of William Warburton’s ancestors as we have come up against a brick wall in this area. So many Warburtons! Thank you Yvonne, California, USA

    1. Many Williams indeed. I haven’t come across your Margaret so don’t know William or his ancestors. What do you know of William? Did he live until after the first censuses? If he is in the 1851 census that would give a fix on his date and place of birth, and most of the Cheshire parish registers are now online at FindMyPast.

  7. Feel like a Heinz 57. Am told that my DNA hails from Ireland and royalty. I can find no support online or in the archives. If anyone has information from the “fighting Irish” of Donegal, Please e-mail me or let me know. I am dying and would like a chance to meet my extended family before I pass.

    Regards,
    Marc “Gunny” Warburton

  8. Hi Ray. Further to chart 6 of the Warburton Clan.
    Maude Warburton married Thomas Postles and lived most of their lives at 13 High Street Weaverham.They had 4 children.
    Eric Warburton 1904 – , married Elizabeth Saunders 1934,
    Lucy 1907 – , married John Hayes 1929, married John Green 1942
    Katie Beryl 1910 – 2007, married Walter Maddock 1936
    Louie Constance 1915 – 1984, married Charles Baker
    Children from the above marriages may still be living so I have not listed them
    My line is from Katie & Walter Maddock.
    Hope this is of further interest to you and any other who are from the same clan
    Regards Jim
