The Family of John Stones and Anne Walberton/Warberton

We have previously viewed another Stones family who were recorded living at Lurgan in the 1901 census. The head of the household was a woman named Anne Stones aged 35 and also recorded is her sister, an unmarried woman named Teresa Warburton. We can therefore work out from this that Anne Stones's maiden name was therefore Warburton.

Baptismal records from Tubber Church

Once more the baptismal indexes from Tubber Church help us to build up a picture of this family and also give an initial clue as to the relationship of the family to the Stones family we are researching:

6th February 1886  Baptism of Timothy John Stone, son of John Stone and Anne Walberton of Lurgan, sponsors Francis Walberton and Kate Stone

5th December 1887  Baptism of Mary Stones, daughter of John Stones and Anne Walberton of Lurgan, sponsors Tim Stones and Rose Walberton

1st January 1890  Baptirm of Michael Stones, son of John Stones and Anne Walberton of Lurgan, sponsors John Cahll and Kate Walberton 

There is another child listed for this couple but most of the deatils fall off the bottom of the photocopied sheet in my posession. It is likely to have been Kate (Catherine) named above as the next child in line in both the 1901 and 1911 census. I can make out that the female sponsor was Theresa Walberton - the same sister of Anne named in the 1901 census.

The main question arising from this information is who was the deceased John Stones and how was he related to the other members of the Stones family at Lurgan? I have previously speculated that another John Stones of Lurgan, married to Rose Malynn, was the son of Timothy and Elizabeth, mainly on the basis that his estimated age was close to that of the baptism year of their son John Stone in 1844.

According to both of the census records above, Anne Warburton was born in 1866 and the couple's first child Timothy was born in 1886. On this basis we can speculate that John Stones who married Anne Warburton was younger than John Stones who married Rose Maylinn, so might have been a cousin to Daniel and his siblings as opposed to a brother.
