Edward Warner Scottish Whaler

Postby Robo » Thu May 07, 2020 5:03 am

I am searching for details of my gg grandfather, Edward Warner. In 1843 he stopped off in Tauranga NZ and married my gg grandmother Irohapeti Kanoi. He then went back to sea in 1843 and is believed to have died at sea in 1843/1844.

He was a whaler by profession and is believed to have been born in Scotland. Would love some leads to find out more about him, as no luck to date.

Hi Robo,
Can only find one Edward Warner on scotlands people.He was born 6th June 1854 in Dundee.
Parents were Andrew Sedley Warner and Marjory Graham.
Realise that this is too late for your man but might be related.
Good luck
Grace. :D

Dundee had a whaling industry - perhaps Edward was from that area of Scotland? These links have interesting information which might help your search:

Peterhead in north-east Scotland also had a history of whaling.
