WARDEN - Port of Spain & Arima, Trinidad, & Barbados

Post by patval » Fri Feb 11, 2011 12:40 pm

I am searching for any descendants of Alexander Warden b.1794 in Peterhead, Scotland. He was the son of John Warden and Ann Muirison.

Alexander was the eldest son and was a doctor. He sailed to Trinidad in 1819 where he met and married in 1826 Mary Britannia (surname unknown) and settled in Port of Spain and Arima. They had six children - John MacDonald b.1828, Alexander Gordon b.1830 (d.1830), Robert Mackworth b.1830, Alexander b.1832, Jessie Anna b.1834, George b.1825.

Alexander sadly drowned in 1836 leaving Mary Britannia to raise the children alone. Family letters show her struggle to bring the children up, she kept cows to sell milk and opened a school as she had been very well educated in her youth (she was of American nationality).

Of the children, we know the most about Robert Mackworth. He married:
1st Sara Cotton, in St Michael Barbados in 1857, and had two children Jessie Anna b.1858 and Honor Mary b.1860 (d.1860).
2nd Clara Frances Deane, in St Michael Barbados in 1865, with whom he had eight children: Mary, Emily, Frederick, Laura, Robert, Elliott, Cuthbert and Jessie.

Eldest daughter Jessie Anna married:
1st Mauritz Joseph Blank, in St Michael Barbados.
2nd Arthur Cleverly, in St Pancras London. no issue.

Laura married a John Lemuel Aleynder(Alexander?) Corbin and had a daughter named Edna.

We have a lot of information regarding the Scottish branch of the family, but would love to find any descendants of Alexander's family in the West Indies.

Many thanks for reading this

Kind regards
