The Family of Francis Warry (bapt 1812) to Hinton St George & later to New South Wales, Australia

FRANCIS WARRY (bapt 1812) & his two FAMILIES

Information in this section comes from Pat McGufficke, from the New South Wales registry of Births, Deaths & Marriages, and the NSW records website – Index to Assisted Immigrants to NSW 1844-59.

Francis WARRY, baptised in Merriott in 1812, son of Richard & Ann Warry, married Louisa Edmonds in Hinton St George, Somerset, in 1834.  The couple had seven children:  1835 Selina, 1837 Ann (died 1846); 1839 Sarah; 1841 Joseph Edmonds; 1841 Grace (died 1842); 1844 Grace & 1846 Francis.

In 1846 Louisa died, and for a period Louisa’s mother (Elizabeth Champion, formerly Edmonds, nee Holland) lived with the family – she is listed in the 1851 census.    A few years later Francis married a second time, to an Ann HORWOOD. [Thanks to Judy Wiles, formerly Rogers, for this information].   They had two girls:  1853 Ann; 1855 Alma.  The family emigrated to New South Wales in 1855, on board the “Kate”.    The Index to Assisted Immigrants to NSW shows the family:
WARRY:  Francis 44, Anne 32 , Sarah 16, Joseph 14, Grace 11, Francis 9, Ann 2, Alma, infant.

Francis & Ann had further children in New South Wales:

1857 Harriett; 1859 Richard Henry; 1861 Ellen L; 1863 Albert.

Francis was a blacksmith at Emu Plains, New South Wales.   He was named as a “relative in the colony” in the immigration list for the arrival of Thomas Pattemore in Sydney in 1857.  Thomas was his nephew; son of his older sister Harriett & her husband Edward Pattemore (also Merriott residents).

The following table shows Francis’s children & their spouses & children, where known.
