Biography   George Warin


George Warin (1830 - 1905)

George Warin and his brother, James, emigrated from England to Canada and combined their skills to start a boat building company, "G. & J. Warin, Boat Builders" (Haid 16). Both George and James frequented the marshes of the St. Clair Flats [Ontario] to hunt. Together with David Ward, another carver from Toronto, George co-founded the St. Clair Flats Shooting Club in 1874 (Engers 283).
