Warner of Co.Cork


Did Richard Yielding marry the dau of Simon Warner?

Richard Yielding married before 1738 to Millicent ---- [many spellings of first name]. No surname known.
Millicent must be born c.1720 (by dates of children's births).
According to Wikitree here and here, Millicent may be Millicent Warner, daughter of Simon Warner, Vicar of Ardcanny, Co.Limerick, and Catherine Studdert. No proof is given. We do not even know Simon had a daughter Millicent.


Simon Warner

The Simon Warner family is as follows.


Simon Warner in [TCD Alumni, p.860].

Ardcanny old church (in ruins) and newer Rectory.
Mellon townland, Ardcanny par, N Co.Limerick (near where the River Maigue meets the Shannon).
From 1829 to 1842 map.
The Rectory was apparently built 1791 [Lewis, 1837] so is after Warner's time.
To the N is Ardcanny church, built 1738, by now in ruins.
See modern satellite view.
See street view of ruined church.
See street view of Rectory entrance.

Vicars of Ardcanny, Co.Limerick.
From p.421 of [Fasti Ecclesiae Hibernicae, Munster].
"V.B." is the source, the Visitation Books of the Diocese.

Thomas Warner of Cork

Richard Yielding the younger, son of Richard Yielding and Millicent (maybe Warner), married before 1771 to Susanna Warner.
This is more evidence that Millicent may be Warner.
And then Richard and Susanna would be cousins of some sort.
