  The Warner's

We have gotten back to the 1700's in England where a John Warner married a Jane (Jenny) Baker. About 1829 a Thomas Warner was indentured on a ship and after his indenture was served, he settled in Port Hawkesbury. His brother William came over to Cape Breton a few years later and moved about from PEI to Mulgrave and Port Hawkesbury. Most of the early Warner's worked in the shipbuilding and carpenter trades. Some migrated to the United States as was a sign of the times to get employment.
