The Geneology tables below are thanks to the research of Alan Warren. Alan is the son of Jacky Warren, who is a brother of May Dean nee Warren. Known as the Marino Warren, whereas we are know as the Fairview Warren. The Marino Warren's father William (Bill) was a first cousin of William (Willie) Warren Fairview. They shared the same Grandfather and Grandmother James Warren and Mary Kelly. Bill was George's son and Willie was William's son. I have included Alan's 9 page file
Extra Warren Geneology Notes. It holds a huge amount of detail (5 generations) so I would advise you to print it out and keep it for reference.

It can get very difficult finding your way down the line, especially from James 1821, just remember for the Fairview Warrens follow William 1848 to Willie 1895. William, James' son was 41 before he married Mary Murray on the 24th April 1889. They had 6 children, one of which William Warren Fairview (Willie) Thanks to his wife Georgina Myra Shanks (Myra) and her collection of old photographs from her Mother Elizabeth Shanks and also the milestone photographs she had taken of her own 12 children. No small feat in the circumstance, so compiling this web site is a celebration of the life and times of two wonderful parents, "Willie and Myra".
