Hubert Ernest de Mey Warren (1885-1934), missionary, was born on 2 March 1885 at Prahran, Victoria, son of William Robert de Mey Warren, agent, and his wife Selina Jane Cornish, née Horrell; both parents were of Cornish descent. After being educated at All Saints Grammar School, St Kilda, Warren served his apprenticeship to Robison Bros & Co., Melbourne, marine engineers, before becoming a ship's engineer. Converted at a George Grubb Mission, Warren trained for the Anglican ministry at Moore College, Sydney, being made deacon in 1910 and ordained priest in 1911. In 1913 he joined the Church Missionary Society's Aboriginal mission at Roper River in the Northern Territory and was appointed superintendent in October.
