Clarence Jenkins Warner was the eldest son of Ebenezer Joseph Warner and Emma Ruth Jenkins Warner nee Bradfield. He was born on 7. 8. 1860 at Clarkebury near the White Kei and christened on 30.9.1860 at the Methodist Church, Queenstown, C.C.
He married on 20.11.1894 Emily Jessica Caldecott. She was the daughter of the Rev. William Shaw Caldecott and his wife Marion Caldecott nee Hellier, who lived in or near Simonstown, Cape, where Rev Caldecott acted as army and navy chaplain. Emily Jessica Caldecott's sister became the first wife of the novelist, Edgar Wallace.
[Refer to 'Record of the Caldcott Family in South Africa. C.T. 1944 and ?Edgar Wallace - a Biography' by Margaret Lane, extracts from which are given hereafter. Also various other biographies of Edgar Wallace give details of the Caldecott family]
Clarence Jenkins Warner spent his early childhood at Southeyville, a place he spoke of with great affection in later life. He probably would have received his early education on the mission stations, wherever his parents were living, be it at Southeyville, near Queenstown or Butterworth.
