George Warren was an Anglican clergyman who was born in 1862 in Banbury, England. He received his early education at Banbury Academy before travelling to the United States for three years. He received his BA from Trinity College in 1888. He was ordained in 1889 and until 1906 served as rector at Lakefield. From 1905 to 1920 he served as the Archdeacon of Peterborough while also serving as the Organizing Secretary of the Diocese of Toronto. In 1920 he was named Archdeacon of York and in 1932 was presented with a Doctor of Divinity, honoris causa by Trinity College. In his career with the Anglican Church Warren was involved in the debate over the existence of separate schools in Ontario and wrote an article entitled “The Separate School Question” in the 18 July 1935 issue of the Canadian Churchman.
In 1889 George Warren married Ada Emily Hutcheson (daughter of Ada Louise and John Howell Hutcheson). They had two children: Edward Warren and Ada Mary Warren (who married James Matthias Snetsinger). Emily Hutcheson died in 1916 in Toronto and George Warren died on 16 April 1946 in Toronto.
