hi phill ! thanks for the imfo, i to have a dial clock by H warren,made in 1872 witch started my interest in H warren,born in 1833, its a great clock, the case is by wilcox local case maker, i also have a book called stamford clocks and watchs by laurence tebbutt, it has many local interesting facts and details of stamford clocks and watchs, there is a early photo of h Warren standing in the door way 3 st marys street, about 1880, i have looked up the 1861 cencus 1871 and 1901, henry is there with wife susan allen, he had 3 sons frederick, thomas , and later william, born in 1868 who was a watch maker,assistant to henry, Now records show that henry died in 1918 so he could have had a daughter after the records show , the clock i have is believed to be the one he had in his shop, as there is an inscription on the bottom door saying it was erected in 1873 for the recovery of prince william on thanksgiving day, my granfather was a clock and watch repair man and he obtained it from stamford for repair , his reply was it came from the shop many years ago for repair how long i dont no, my grandfarther died in 1980, i was to repair the clock 5 years ago !   steve.

3 St.Mary`s Street
Ken Ford, in his excellent Stamford  book `Who Traded Where` says
`No:3 RAPPORT - Ladies Clothing
In the mid-1850s Henry Warren, a watchmaker, jeweller and optician opened his shop here. Henry traded until the early 1900s when Edward Kettle acquired the property.  He was a watchmaker and jeweller too. By the 1950s it was `The Work Box` selling wools etc and in the 1970s `Hat Peg` a ladies` hat shop. It is now (2003)  RAPPORT.`

My wife and I were in Stamford in September (08), tracing our family's roots.  Henry Warren was my great grandfather's half brother...their father was Robert Warren (1806-1854) who's buried in Empingham.  Henry's mother was Mary Anne Warren (Frisby) who is buried in the All Saints Church cemetary, just outside the doors, along with 3 of their children who died shortly after birth.   His second wife, Anne (Chamberlain) was my gr grandfather's mother...she is also buried at All Saints however we were unable to find her grave.  Eva and her sister Phyllis were, to our knowledge, both spinsters...Eva passed away approx. 5 years ago...

We have records of the family dating from Robert Warren (1806-1854) onward to roughly 1959, but nothing earlier...if anyone has any prior history, or can put me in touch with family members still living in the Stamford area, that would be great.

Also, I'd be interested in knowing how easy it is to acquire one of these time pieces made by Henry Warren...

Hi Richard,I think Henry Warren clocks and watches are thin on the ground.I have a Dial clock and a watch by Warren,and also a poem from an ancient Stamford book about three lions being impaled on Warrens chekie coat by King Edward 1V,to make the now stamford shield.I believe your aunt told me that the Warrens of the Keep were her ancestors.I have a letter from Tebbut(Stamford Historian)saying he had met miss Warren,she had a collection of Henrys watches.the letter was from the late 60s early 70s.If you would like photos of the above I would be pleased to oblige. Yours Phil.

Was the lady aged about 90 at Swayfield Phyllis Warren? I think it may have been.  If so she lived for many years in the big house on the corner opposite the top of Brazenoze Hill.  She was a wonderful person, a friend of my mother and father and we used to visit a lot.  My eldest son christened her 'Tin' because she always welcomed him with a tin of biscuits to choose from.  It was a fantastic house with things like stuffed animals, very Victorian decor. She also had lots of wonderful toys - she passed some of them on to us - I still have the range (cooker) from the dolls house.  I slightly remember Miss Warren's mother too - she also lived there.

Yes she was that age and as you said a very nice lady ,but I have often wondered how she ended up in a flat over that pub after spending her life in such a fantastic house in Stamford I believe it was called. Rush plume Lodge.

I think the house at the St.Paul`s Street/Brasenose crossroads (where the Warrens lived) is called Rusholme Lodge. It is on the site of The Holy Trinity and St.Stephen`s church. Next time you are stuck at the traffic lights you can see the carving of St.Stephen(?) over the front door.

I think that when Miss Warren's mother died, Miss Warren may have jointly-invested in the pub?  Though I am not sure.  I seem to recall that she was happy to have moved there, I think she had friends in the village?  By the way, she was a very elegant and good-looking lady even when she was older - with amazingly beautiful hands.
