You can participate in the Warburton Project in two ways:

  1. Provide information for inclusion in this website
  2. Participate in the Warburton DNA Study

Website Input

All the results of my work are published on this website, and freely available. If you have anything you would like to add to this body of available material I would be delighted to hear from you, whether it is  a comment on something already here, an old photograph, a fully documented tree, or anything else. If you would like to do some specific research with a view to put the results on the website I will be happy to discuss that too.

If you have a Warburton tree you would like to see on the website I have produced a Style Guide to assist you. It can be accessed here.

DNA Study

The Warburton Surname DNA Study can only progress through the participation of Warburton males.  If you are a Warburton male, or have access to one, I would encourage you to visit my DNA Project page where I hope I will provide the information necessary for you to decide if you would like to participate in the project.

  1. Hi,
    I found this site by accident, researching part of my lines, and discovered that you don’t have all the lines I have. In particular, the line from Laura J Warbutton/Warburton. She had 4 children by James C Cobb…among them my grandmother, Emma.

    If you’d like what I have found, I can send it, or point you to my tree. 🙂

    Thank you for your efforts here, I can fill in many blanks…thought I would return the favor.

    1. Hi Cheryl,

      Thank you for your comment. I emailed you directly, and called you Emma having not read your comment properly. I should know better; my sister’s name is Cheryl.

      I would be delighted to add any extensions you have to my trees. I’m painfully aware I have probably only scratched the surface so far. I look forward to hearing from you.


  2. Hi Ray,
    There’s a chance that I’m related to the Cheryl who made the comment above. Laura J. Warburton was my grandmother’s older sister. She was married to James C Cobb. If her grandmother’s name is Emma (Cobb) Taylor, this is definitely the right line. Please feel free to give her my contact info.

    Thanks a lot,

  3. Hi everyone!

    My name is Chris Warburton and I am from Blackpool.
    My Dad is David Warburton and he is also.
    Beyond this I know nothing else of my Warburton family history.
    I think my genetic grand father who I have never known could
    have been from Bolton or may still be. He would have been with my
    Grand mother Anne Warburton nee Rice who unfortunately died last

    Can anyone maybe help?

    Thank you

    Chris Warburton.

  4. Hi there
    so great to see all the Warburtons together in one place! I could only find bits and pieces of my line, but I thought you might like to hear about some of us over here.
    There are a huge amount of Warburtons in New Zealand, most of us crossed with the Hartgill family as well. We had a reunion earlier in 2015, and so I have a huge family tree of all of us descended from one of the Warburtons (I don’t have the information with my right now, so I may be missing some pieces).
    If you were interested, I would be more than happy to share the family tree with you as well as some other information my great aunt has compiled over the years. I myself am a direct descendant of the Irish author Elliot Bartholomew-George Warburton, and have copies of his books at home (he inspired Charles Dickens to write! We have the letter from him somewhere in the family files). Not sure when I will next be able to access the information, but hopefully very soon, as it will be very interesting to see where my family fits into all this!

  5. Hi, Ray,
    I am also S6881 with the four alleles you list for the Lancashire Group. My DNA Kit is FTDNA #220291. I have a “paper trail” back to a Thomas Leaptrapp in Wendover, Bucks, in 1679 (son christened). The name supposedly derived from Liptrot in Lancashire, which is found in the Parish Register of Chorley as early as 1552, and the County Tax List of 1409. Nothing before that.
    How can I be added to your Lancashire study? Please email me.
    Jim Liptrap
