Rev. William WARNOCK II - what religion?

Rev. William WARNOCK II - what religion?

Posted: 1018239200000
My husband has been told he descends from William James WARNOCK Sr. born about 1746 in Chippah, Omagh, Tyrone, Ireland. He died on 10 Nov 1837 in Greenupsburg, Greenup, Kentucky. He married Elizabeth "Betsy" (Carlyle) CARLISLE.
He was also told that this Wm. James WARNOCK (1746-1837) was the son of Reverend William WARNOCK II born 1730 in Ireland who died on 2 Mar 1791 in Bally-Fares,,,Ireland.

Can anyone share with me which religion this man was a Reverend in? (This may be obvious to those experienced in Irish research but I am in the dark regarding Ireland).

Thank you very much.

Hi, Just a friendly note to add a bit if info. The origin of the name "Warnock" is Scottish, from Scotland. They became a political "handful" or problem for the Crown, & were ordered to leave Scotland, along with many other freedom-loving Clans. They were granted lands in N Ireland first, then migrated south a bit. They probably were originally Church of England/Anglican first, then Presbyterian, and later Methodist (most liberal of the day). Our WARNOCK's were in US by late 1600's, early 1700's, Va, & the Carolina Colonies, SC, (Edgefield Dist) & NC. Later in Georgia (Early & Calhoun Co's) , Florida (Citrus & Orange Co's) & Texas. Hope this helps. Kathleen

Hi: I was excited to see your question. I am also decended from this same william James Warnock. My father grew up in South Shore KY, which is either in or near Greenup County. He has passed on a very old book to my brother called THE HISTORY OF GREENUP COUNTY. This has a great deal about the Warnocks. I did not however have any info. on the Rev. William Warnock II. I'll be happy to have that. I hadn't gotten any further back than the William James born in 1746. Nice to meet you cousin. Trying to help with your religion question. The book I mentioned earlier states that three Warnock Brothers in Scotland fought to defend the Presbyterian form of Government. They fled to Ireland. This was all prior to 1667 A.D.

This probably isn't the right person, but this is what I have for my one of my William Warnocks.

William Warnock - born 1745 in County Down, Northern Ireland. He died 10 Oct 1837
He was married to Isabella Askin

This William was my 5th great grandfather.

I have the same thing you do on the wives, with the exception of a few dates.


Thank you for responding though. I'm in contact with my cousin again, so maybe I'll find out a bit more soon.

I too descend from William James Warnock, b.1746, County Tyrone, Ireland. I have done years of research, and made contact with many other Warnock descendants, and wish to prevent those who have responded to this inquiry from following the 'wrong' Warnock line (as I did early in my research).
Evidence is strong that the two Warnock families of concern to us moved to Ireland from Scotland: one in the 1600s, whose descendants lived in County Down; the other at an unknown time whose descendants ended up in County Tyrone. The two may have been related in Scotland, but no connection has been found, nor has anything been found to later connect the two families in Ireland. No earlier record has been found for "our" William James or his ancestors in Ireland, althrough three generations of descendants have gone there for research. His birthplace is often given as "Chippah", however that is not, nor ever was, a place name in County Tyrone. The closest is "Cappagh", which I believe must be the correct name. Some researchers have mingled these two Warnock lines, resulting in much confusion.
From Linda Miller, I have a well documented genealogy of her ancestor, Hugh Warnock, b. 1717 in Ballyferries, County Down, and his son William b. 1745, just a year earlier than 'our' County Tyrone William James. This County Down family HAS been traced to Scotland in the 1600s. This William, however, did not immigrate to America, and is buried in County Down. His son John, b. 1791, immigrated to Canada in 1834, and several of his grandchildren followed to both the U.S. & Canada in the 1830s.
Our William James Warnock immigrated before 1773, prob. first to North Carolina. Family legend says he was with Daniel Boone on his first, failed attempt to establish a colony in Kentucky in 1773. In "History of Kentucky", the historian Collins related
that "in March 1857, a Mr. Warnock, then 79 years of age, made oath that he saw Daniel Boone, at a point about one & one-half miles up Little Sandy River, cut down a tree out of which he made a canoe when he started on his way to his new home in Missouri". (Because the age works out right, this Mr. Warnock was probably James, b 1781, son of William James). William was one of the first settlers in Greenup, his oldest son born there in 1776.
Nothing I have ever found suggests that William James had the title "Reverend". I re-read my extensive notes and sources, and could find only two references to any religion. In the third generation, one descendant was a Baptist, and a 'married-in' son-in-law was a Methodist.
I would like very much to add any descendants of William James to my database, and will be happy to exchange information with my cousins. Contact me directly at ginia2@san.rr.com Regards, Virginia
