From the Newtownards Chronicle of 17 Sept. 1910 Co. Down
Born at Ballybrain, Grey Abbey
Drove the Portaferry Stage Coach

Amongst the many interesting old people who are spending the evening of their days within the walls of that excellent institution at Clifton Street, Belfast, managed by the Belfast Charitable Society, and which owes so much to the generosity of the Benn family, there is no more interesting or intelligent inmate than Mr. James Warnock, who is now in his 93rd year.  Mr. Warnock was born in the good old days when George the Third was King, viz. on 27th June 1818, or three years after the Battle of Waterloo.  Five Kings and one Queen have sat on the British throne during his lifetime a record truly which is held by very few of the subjects of His Majesty King George V.

The birthplace of this wonderful old man was the townland of Ballybrain, near Grey Abbey, in the lovely district of the Ards, of which he has the fondest recollections.  The ancestors of the family were twin brothers who fled from Scotland in 1685 [see the first grave above for William b 1663 died 9 Oct. 1737 age 74] during the persecution of the Covenanters by Claverhouse, and since that time the Warnock name has been represented in the district.  At present the farm held by the Warnocks for generations is in possession of Mr. Hugh Warnock the youngest son.

After his school days the lad went to Portaferry, and took charge of the stables in a hotel, remaining there for a couple of years.  On leaving that establishment it was not unnatural that the lad should become a coachman, and when in his teens he entered the service of Miss Simms, at Glencraig, at a wage of £8 per annum and rations.  

His next service was with Mr. James Crawford, a wine merchant in Callendar Street, Belfast, and the old man still speaks with a chuckle of the fact that his pay jumped at one stroke from £8 to £14.  He recalls vividly the festivities associated with the coronation of Queen Victoria in Botanic Gardens in 1837, when he drove Mr. Crawford to the gardens to take part therein.

In his early day he was also coachman for a brief period to Mr. Young,  who was connected with the Lagan Foundry about 70 years ago. [1852 Shamrock Lodge home of John Young, of Coates & Young, Lagan Foundry]
When he left Mr. Young’s he entered the employment of Mr. George Patterson, of Grey Abbey, who had just put a new stagecoach on the road from Belfast to Kirkcubbin.  When that coach ceased to run, Mr. Warnock drove the mail coach from Portaferry to Belfast for a long period, and also spent some time in the service of Mr. White, of Newtownards, who ran passenger coaches from Belfast to Donaghadee and Portaferry.  It is Mr. Warnock’s proudest boast that for 30 years (though not consecutively) he was driver of the mails from Portaferry to Belfast.

For 20 years he drove the stagecoach, coming to Belfast in the morning and returning in the evening, and for 10 years afterwards he drove the long car which superseded the stagecoach, and was itself superseded by a motor bus only two years ago.  During that time Mr. Warnock never had an accident, and it is not surprising that he came to be recognised as one of the best drivers and judges of horse-flesh in the Ards.  

In the early fifties Mr. Warnock temporarily gave up driving to act as an agent for embroidery work, for which the Portaferry district is still famous.  The Crimean War ruined the business for the time being, and Mr. Warnock decided to adopt a new mode of livelihood.  He joined the coastguard force as one of the extra men who were temporarily taken on during the war.  At that time he lived in Kirkcubbin, and the station he was allotted to was PORTAVOGIE, where he kept the journal for two years.  The pay was one shilling and tenpence-halfpenny per day, and this was not considered sufficient by the extra men, none of whom, however, had the pluck to tackle their superiors with a view to an increase.
MY OWN GRANDFATHER FRANCIS YOUNG WAS ALSO ONE OF THE PORTAVOGIE COASTGUARDS during 2nd world war.

They were sent in 1855 to Carrickfergus Castle for gun practice, Mr. Warnock in the number.  He became noted as a crack shot, but no incident of his service under the Crown is more recalled by the old man than the manner in which he got a rise of pay.  A high officer came to Carrick to inspect the extra men, and when he was going away Mr. Warnock asked him point blank for an increase.  The officer was astonished at the request, the first of the kind ever made to him, but he was also impressed, and promised to bring the application under the notice of the chairman of the Customs.  Relying on his honour, Mr. Warnock took no further step in the matter, and returned to Portavogie in due course, and exactly a month later he received a letter per express messenger from Captain Stoddart at Donaghadee, informing him that the pay of all the extra men in Ireland had been raised to three shillings per day.  This was a feather in the cap of the old man, who is still very proud of the share he had in the business.

The manner of his retirement from the service revealed a spirit of self-sacrifice rarely to be found.  His superior in the station was a man possessed of human frailties, and on one occasion, after giving Warnock a day’s leave, he imbibed rather freely, and was detected on the surprise visit of an officer, who asked him the name of the man on duty.  The answer was “Warnock”, who was surprised when he was taken to task on his return from leave.  To the credit of his superior, he owned up that Warnock was not the duty man at all, but that it was himself, and the officer was furious.  Dismissal seemed inevitable for the superior, who was a man with 22 years’ service, but Warnock, sooner than see him lose his position, volunteered to resign himself, which he did, returning at once to his beloved horses.  

He took up driving the long car, which had superseded the stage coaches, in the Belfast-Portaferry Road, and for 10 years remained at his post.  Finally, he came to live in Newtownards, where he set up in the posting business for himself, while his wife looked after a grocery establishment.  

The Long Car

Mr. Warnock came to live in Belfast many years ago, and is still remembered by many as the driver of one of Mr. Lyons’ buses, which plied between Knock and the city before and in the early days of the horse trams.  Subsequently he drove one of Mr. Robert Armstrong’s buses, which have long since disappeared.  Twenty-five years ago he drove Messrs. Norton & Shaw’s bus at the Giant’s Causeway, and subsequently he filled several posts in Belfast, always with satisfaction to his employers.

Thirteen years ago he was elected to a place in the Charitable Institute, with his wife, who for 58 years had been the partner of his joys and sorrows.  Her death last May, in her 76th year, was a great blow to the old man.  It is his proud boast that he never had an accident in his life, and that he always did his duty, and his testimonials are eloquent proof of that fact.
