In answer to your recent query re John Warlow of Castle Hall Milford(wine merchant) I
thought I would inform you that there are interesting documents held by Pembs R.O. I found
them under "Calmview" No doubt you have already seen them. However here they

Solicitors Haverfordwest, as follows:-
Date 1856 T.O. Llewellin D- TOL 11.
This is a conveyance of Wallis Mill Ambleston. It names amongst local gentry and yeomen
the name of William Warlow late of Haverfordwest but now of Stuttgard Wiertuberg Esq.
Could above William be a descendant of John Warlow maybe grandson? I believe Stuttgard
could be Stuttgart a Wine area. Either in France or Germany at that time.
My interest is that I am descended from Warlows of Roch/Nolton. As yet I cannot prove a
direct descent from John Warlow and Thomas Warlow of Hilton Roch who lived there in
1700's - but it is likely I am from them.. I believe Thomas Warlow is father to
my Elizabeth Warlow married Roch 1801 to John Llewellin Militia man. I cannot find

Subject : Re: [Dyfed] John Warlow of Haverfordwest - Wine Merchant
Does anyone have any information about what really happened to John Warlow
of Haverfordwest, wine merchant?
He married Catherine Picton, a younger sister of Sir Thomas Picton, at
Rudbaxton in 1796 by licence. In the early 1800s he lived at Castle Hall
near Milford, which he probably acquired around 1803. Elizabeth Warlow, the
eldest daughter of their second son, Thomas Warlow (1797-1839), wrote this
about him in 1913, when aged 88 (NLW MS 1409D):
"The marriage seemed to be a very happy one till after there were three
children. Then (Catherine) became absorbed in her nursery and gave up all
society. Her husband began to go to bachelors' parties with her brothers,
and before many years were over he took to much worse society. After the
birth of their fifth child a complete change took place and for the two
years they still lived together she never saw him except in the presence of
others. Her brother (not sure which one, but possibly Sir Thomas Picton
from his contacts in Trinidad) got (John Warlow) an appointment in the West
Indies and she went to live at Cowbridge with her children".
He appears to be dead by 1812 as his eldest son, Thomas Warlow, described
him as such on his application to join the East India Company made in that
year. As this is the family that inherited the Ewenny Estate in Glamorgan
in 1867, clearly he is the 'black sheep' ancestor in the family line.
So obviously his burial is not in the Pembrokeshire parish registers online,
and being a wine merchant in the 1800-1810 time-period would seem to provide
almost an unlimited opportunity to go off the rails!
Thanks in advance
