Fred’s parents Bennett and Grace Warburton and their 13 children circa 1904, The 13th child, also Grace , was born in 1901, and looks about 3 or 4. Judging by relative ages, Fred is probably the boy directly behind little Grace. It is assumed the eldest son, Charles Henry is the centre of the back row, and James Alfred (Alf), great grandfather of Any Halton who provided the photo, and a communist like Fred, is one of the two on either side of Charles.

Anne Maria Warburton was born in 1854 to George Warburton and Maria nee Dodd of the Nottinghamshire clan. She married an American, William Henry Sherburn at Worksop Priory in 1870. William was a merchant from Wisconsin and the couple subsequently moved to America. The cover of a bible first presented to Anne Maria by her mother, and repurposed nearly 100 years later. Grandpa Sherburn and a Lady I’m not sure who these two people are. I guess Grandpa Sherburn might be Anne Maria’s son, but the photo doesn’t include the lady’s name. She doesn’t look too dissimilar to Anne Maria, but I can’t be sure.

They appeared in Issue 20 of The Button Files. James Warburton was born on on February 1st 1850 in Macclesfield. He can be found in the Greater Hale Barns clan. He was a master tailor who married Martha Jane Toole in 1874. They emigrated to Paterson, New Jersey in 1886. James died in 1907. There were close links between Paterson and Macclesfield from 1830 onwards, based on a shared involvement in the silk industry. By 1900 there were 3,000 Macclesfield people living in Paterson. It seems that as a tailor, James was not directly involved in the silk industry though it was probably an important raw material in his tailoring business. The Macclesfield-Paterson link can also be seen in the Wilmslow clan. 152 Governor Street, Paterson, New Jersey The house at 152 Governor Street where James Warburton and his wife Martha lived in Patterson, New Jersey in 1892/3.
