Hi Christopher, Tried emailing you but it was returned (not sure if your address is correct on here?) Anyway pleased you got my message, apologies for possibly repeating myself but I will give you the information I have on the Warings.
George Victor Waring was born in 1880 in Manchester he had an older brother William who was born about 1878 (also in Manchester)
Their father was Henry Waring who was born about 1854 in the Wirral Cheshire, their mother was Jane Heald who was born in Leeds yorkshire about 1854.
Henrys' father was James Waring who was born about 1826 in Neston Cheshire (Wirral) and his mother was Ann Sherlock who was born about 1829 in Liverpool.
By the time of the 1901 census George Victor and William were living on Wilson Street in Birkenhead with their Mother Jane and sisters Annie (born about 1885) and Emily (born about 1887). William was listed as a Property Master (Theatre) and George Victor as a Stage Makers Labourer.
I know that George Victor Married Mary McNally in Birkenhead in 1906.
Mary was born about 1886 (I think as she was 99 when she died about 1985) she was orphaned at the age of 2. The family story goes that her father was killed whilst working on the railways and her mother died of a broken heart, leaving Mary and her older sister (don't know name unfortunately) orphaned. They were taken in by a Mrs Corker who unnoficially adopted them and renamed Mary (Marianne Corker) . Her real name was only revealed to George Victor Waring when they were married and there was some form of trouble as I think Georges father Henry had fought the Irish or something like that.
My grandmother Lilian Grace Waring was the eldest of their children and she was born on 10th August 1907, I do not know the dates or years that her siblings (including your father) were born but I know Ted was one of the younger ones.
Ted used to run a b&b in Torquay Devon with his wife Bet, we stayed there once when I was younger. Ted had a son who was a biochemist but worked as a pianist because he didn't want to leave the Uk (or something like that, can't recall his name at the moment though)
My nan (Lil) ended up looking after the family most of the time as unfortunately George Victor and Mary were drunkards by all accounts, although I am not sure how long she carried on doing this.
My nan married Frederick Edwardson sometime in 1938, he had just left the 7th Queens Own Hussars but was drafted back when WW2 broke out. He served in Egypt leaving Lil and his daughter (my aunt) Grace b 1939 at home.
Lil was a servant and worked in the homes of quite posh folk (there is a story about her meeting Queen Mary in a lift) this continued during the war and she suffered the misfortune of being bombed out no less than 5 times.
My mother Gillian was born on 28th August 1945, Lil and Fred had relocated to Birmingham and they lived in a place called Shard End which was on the outskirts.
They emigrated to Brisbane (believe it or not) in the early 1960s (1963?) but they only stayed a couple of years, during which time my mother had married and divorced and given birth to my half sister Julianne.
They returned to live in Birmingham, where my mother married my father Roger Shelley in 1970 (I think).
I know that Lil stayed in touch with Peggy and her mother Mary (who was referred to as little gran) and Ted and his wife Bet as I have mentioned.
Lil and Fred moved to Redditch Worcestershire where they lived in their little bungalow until Fred died in 1989, Lil struggled to cope without him and sadly contracted Alzhiemers disease. She lived in a lovely nursing home for a few years before she died in 1995, she remains the funniest person I have ever met.
I have a photo of Lilian with Mary McNally at a Wedding in the late 1970s/ early 1980s with another lady that I don't recognise, I will try to send it seperately as it may be too large.
Would love to hear any storys that you have, my mother and Aunt are still alive and well and can probably answer any questions that I am unable to.
