Mary Guthrie Warren was born in 1846 in Southsea, Hampshire; she was baptised on 16th October at St. Marys, Portsea. Her parents were cousins, Richard Laird Warren, 37yrs, Captain, R.N., (born Scotland), and Eleanor Charlotte, 26yrs, nee Warren. In 1851, when she was 4yrs old, Mary had 2 brothers, Pelham Laird, 5yrs, and Richard, 3yrs, eventually she was to be 1 of 11 children.

Her father’s naval career required the family to move frequently, from Hampshire to Jersey, C.I., and back to Portsmouth; by 1871 Captain Warren had been promoted to Admiral, R.N., and in 1875, aged 65yrs, he died in Portsea. Mary was unmarried and financially dependent on her mother, as were several of her sisters, and in 1881 they were living in St. Peter Port, Guernsey, C.I. Ten years later, Mary, 44yrs, 2 sisters and a brother, were living with their 70yr old mother in Worthing, at 20, Prince’s Terrace, Heene, on the sea front. Her sister, Alice, 36yrs, was a Sister of Mercy Nun, and her brother, Mordaunt, 25yrs, was a Theological Student.  In 1895, after the death of her mother, Mary, now 48yrs, finally had private means to support herself. Her older brother, Pelham Laird, had entered the civil service, going into the Consular Service in China. He had been awarded a Knighthood, and was now Sir Pelham Warren, KCMG, living in Daventry, Northampton. Mary and her sister, Eleanor, were living with him in 1911.

At some point she returned to Worthing, living at 12, Winchester Road, where she died, aged 75yrs, on 17th November 1921. Probate was granted to Reverend Henry Bernard Tower, Clerk, effects £1156 12s 5d. Value 2021 – £58K.
