John WARMAN (1734-1820)

and Hannah JENNINGS (1737-1805)


John Warman and Hannah Jennings were my 5x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married on Thursday 23 November 1758 in Beenham, Berkshire.  Hannah was then a Spinster.

John Warman was baptised on Wednesday 15 December 1734 in Chieveley, Berkshire.  He was the son of Thomas Worman (c1710-1787) and Hannah Fisher (1712-1790), although only his father's name was recorded in the baptism register.  He died aged 90 years (according to the burial register) and was buried on Monday 25 December 1820 in Beenham.  He seems to have been the first Warman in Beenham, although there were a few in the early 1600's.  It is thought he may have inherited property in Beenham from his wife's family.

Hannah Jennings was baptised on Saturday 31 August 1737 in Beenham.  She was the second child and only daughter of 5 113 John Jennings (1706-1765) and 5 113 Ann Corrall (1702-1776).  She was buried on Thursday 18 April 1805 in Beenham.


John Warman and Hannah Jennings had 5 known children:

  1. John Warman was baptised and buried on Thursday 11 August 1758 in Beenham.  His father was then described as a Labourer.  He was buried in Beenham on 19 August 1758.

  2. Mary Warman was baptised on Monday 15 December 1760 in Beenham.  She died there in her 21st year on Saturday 8 September 1781 and was buried on 10 September 1781.  A headstone was found by Ken Pointer and Joan Beasley in the Beenham churchyard, it was leaning on the outside of the back church wall, on one side was recorded Mary's 1781 death and on the other that of Ann Warman aged 82 who died on 1 June 1845.

  3. John Warman was baptised on Sunday 11 March 1764 in Beenham.

  4. Richard Warman was baptised on Sunday 22 November 1767 in Beenham.  He died aged 80 years and was buried at the Broad Street Independent Chapel in Reading.  He left a Will dated 10 January 1848 which stated he was of 33 Soho Street, Reading.  His Will was proved on 4 February 1848.  In his Will he mentioned 2 daughter-in-law, Elizabeth Evans wife of George Evans and Mary Frances a widow.

  5. James Warman, my 4x Great Grandfather, was baptised on Sunday 26 August 1770 in Beenham.  He married Ann Brown on Sunday 25 November 1798 in Reading.  (They have their own page.)


Many thanks to Joan Beasley for finding John's 1734 baptism.
