Some examples of Warrington becoming also a surname in Lancashire are, James, born 18 Nov., baptism 5 Dec., 1790, son of Edmund and Martha Warrington, at St.Peter's church in Liverpool. Earlier: John baptism 20 Aug., 1785 and Thomas bapt. 14 June 1788 sons of Hannah Warrington,( both children base-born), at St.Mary-The-Virgin church, Leigh.
Kathy, I would not know why you have emphasized on the two sons born of a Hannah Warrington, but anyone from them would or should be aware that how they come into this world is not what matters, but what does matter is how they live and hopefully leading a good life. Surely this is more important. We all can be negatively condescending but we can also look for the positively good things and also find them.

Raymond knows the following: the Warrington surname comes from a place-name and some people today with the surname may not be related because certain persons leaving the place just happened to surname themselves with the place-name, or known has such by other people in other areas when their name had to be documented, i.e, "de-Warrington", "de" meaning "of" or "from". So, many people surnamed Warrington may not be connected to those who had various coats-of-arms because they may not be blood or genetically related. This is also the case with other place-names that people have become surnamed with, although some place-names originate from a personal name.
Michael, yes I agree with your posting but have you mistaken me for someone else. I very vaguely know of a Michael Warrington but the first name could be popular with that surname, although amongst many families two of the most popular first names would be John and Mary.
