In October 2016 I posted a link to the story of Warburton Pike, a naturalist, author, adventurer, miner and philanthropist who lived on the island of Saturna in British Columbia in the late 19th century. I also explored his Warburton links. He was the grandson of William Pike and Ann Warburton who married on August 13th 1803 at Norton in the Moors, Staffordshire. He was not the first Warburton Pike from this family. Others included an uncle, and his cousin, Lawrence Warburton Pike.
In May of this year, in a post called More on the Potters, I wrote about Ann’s father Jacob Warburton a famous potter from a family of potters in Staffordshire.
Today I received an email from a direct descendant of Lawrence Warburton Pike as follows.
