The Glen was about 25ks from George Town on the Lower Piper near Lefroy. James Warren died there 4 October 1912. The Glen, Pipers River and Lefroy were all in the same area. James and wife Jessie Warren were the early pioneers of The Glen. I think there was also the Hardwicks the Andersons and the Adams's. Launceston Historical Society would be able to tell you more.

The first of October that's when James Warren died not the 4th. Jessie died on the 14 February 1919 at her daughter's house at Inveresk. She was born Ellen Jessie but on the headstone it says Jessie Ellen.

ELLEN JESSE was probably known more as JESSE ( JESSIE has also been used ) Her daughter JESSE LEWIS, nee WARREN is MOST likely to be my G.G.Grandmother.

Hi, just to Clarify, The Glen, is indeed, and still is, a place (township) east of Georgetown and a few kilometres from Lefroy. James Warren (married to Jessie) (My Great Grandfather) was the sone of James married to Emma (Jane) Anderson, daughter of Capt John Anderson, also of The Glen. There was also a George Anderson (Boat builder, Warden of Georgetown) who lived at The Glen. I wonder if he was related to Capt John? Anyone know? George was one of the discoverers of the Lefroy goldfields.

George was the name of Captain John Anderson's father. He was there at The Glen in the big fire that destroyed the house and much of the property in January 1909. A George Anderson, of the right age, ie 91, died at The Glen in 1911. George had been a gardener at the time of Captain John's marriage (then a very lowly guy in the Army), back in Ireland. I wonder if it is him, though. I have quite a bit on Captain John as he is my great grandfather. Would love to hear from anyone who has more info and I am happy to send photos info etc Just email me at [email protected]
Am also researching the Warrens and Lees. I believe there is a big scandal there with that lot.

Hi Hilda. You can try Tasmanian news papers, just type in " trove " on that date or just type in his name. you may be surprized at what you'll find. Failing that try 'Ancestry.com ' they are free this weekend. jim
