    Believed born in the UK possibly Lymington, Hampshire and was married while on leave in the UK

    1815/1816 possibly. We are currently trying to verify this.Lieutenant Jonathon Warner Esq. JP. Joined the British Navy as a midshipman in 1800. Transferred to the British Army in 1807 and served until 1830. Commissioned as an Ensign [2nd Lt] in the York Light Infantry Volunteers 20th July 1808.

    Arrived in Australia on the "Orpheus" on the 12th September 1826 via Rio de Janeiro with 213 men,

    women and children of the company. . [There is some discrepancies re wife travelling with him. Family history has Jonathon and Mary travelling with two sons and the third William was born on the ship and three months old when he arrived in Australia. We are trying to solve the mystery as he could have been in Australia with his wife prior to this]. In 1828 served as Assistant Road Surveyor on the Great North Road and Wiseman's Ferry district.Granted in 1830, 1280 acres of Land along Lake Macquarie which became the present day Warner's Bay named after Lieutenant Jonathon Warner .
