Notes for Augusta Amelia Townsend (1)

Married 8 February 1877 (2), at Aughadown Church, Skibbereen. Captain Richard Lane Warren RN (3) (4) of The Crescent, Cobh, Cork, son of Thomas Warren(5) of Monkstown and Anne Townsend [408], shown as 'Richard dsp' at paragragh 1.A.c.(11).

Richard Warren was the sole executor of the will of Augusta's aunt, Georgiana Townsend [419]. Page 861 of The Calendar of Wills and Administration 1858-1922 in the National Archives of Ireland records that the will of " Georgiana Townshend otherwise Townsend late of Carysfort Avenue Blackrock County Dublin Spinster”, who died on 14 November 1894, was proved at the Principal Registry on 19 December 1894 by "Richard Lane Warren of The Crescent Queenstown County Cork Esquire the sole Executor". Effects £3,595 14s 10d.

An interesting footnote on page 1156 of The Council Book of the Corporation of the City of Cork 1690-1800 by Richard Caulfield records “An interesting document, purporting to be an agreement between Daniell O'Kieffe, of Dromagh, and Colonel Townsend, bearing his signature and seal, is in the possession of Miss Augusta A. Townsend, of Whitehall, Skibbereen. “ How this came into her possession and its present whereabouts is a mystery!

It would appear that Augusta died before 1900 as she is not mentioned in Richard's will.

For other Warren connections see Richard Townsend [221], daughter of Henrietta Anna Townsend [242], Elizabeth Hildegardis Townsend [244], John Townsend [318], Anna Townsend [408], Edward Henry Townsend [411].

(3) Richard died on 18 April 1900. Entry in the diary of Agnes Townsend [334] - '18 April 1900. Capt Warren died'. Page 528 of The Calendar of Wills and Administration 1858-1922 in the National Archives of Ireland records that probate of the will of "Richard Lane Warren late of The Crescent Queenstown County Cork Esquire", who died on 18 April 1900, was granted at Cork on 9 July 1900 to “Ethel P Warren Spinster”.

(4) U.H. Hussey de Burgh's ‘Landowners of Ireland 1878' records "WARREN, Captain, Passage, Cork. 1477 acres £706." and this most probably refers to Richard. ‘Slater’s Royal National Directory of Ireland, 1894’ records under the heading ‘Munster Parishes – Queenstown’ - “Warren Capt. Richard Lane, 2 The Crescent.” Under the heading ‘County Magistrates for the Province of Munster Co Cork’ the Directory records “Warren Deputy-Inspector-General Thomas Robert RN. Jamesbrook hall, Ballinacurra, Midleton.” Who is this?

(5) The entry for Warren (Crookstown) in the National University of Ireland (NUI) Galway Connacht and Munster Landed Estates Database records "The Reverend Robert Warren of Crookstown, parish of Kilmurry, barony of East Muskerry, county Cork, was the fifth son of Robert Warren 1st Baronet. At the time of Griffith's Valuation his son, also the Reverend Robert Warren, held land in the parishes of Clondrohid, barony of West Muskerry and Kilmurry, barony of East Muskerry. At the same time another son Richard Warren held land in the parishes of Ballycurrany and Lisgoold, barony of Barrymore. In the 1870s the Reverend Robert E. Warren of The Mount, Shrewsbury, owned 1,574 acres in county Cork."
