yes, this would be the family who constructed your chairs - and I would believe them to be lovely, as the Waring furniture had very tasteful and classical lines that would be lovely antiques of this day. There is a more contemporary line of furniture now, called the Waring and Gillow line as someone bought the rights to use the name.

The family history is right here in terms of genealogy. The business history would be that it was started in Ire. and brought to Liverpool in abt. 1841. Later, Samuel Senior amalgamated with Gillows I believe. Samuel & brother John Henry inherited the business, as far as I know, and don't know of any other heirs to it initially. Samuel's line was the Waring and Gillow of London, my Great grandfather John Henry retained Waring and Sons, remaining in Liverpool.

Hope this helps some
