Waring, S. J. Liverpool & Oxford Street, London; furniture makers and retailers (fl.1850-1900) The Waring family reputedly originated in Norway and emigrated to Ireland at the beginning of the nineteenth century where they became successful linen manufacturers in Belfast. John Waring or his son, Samuel James Waring, opened a branch in Liverpool in 1835 and became wholesale cabinet makers. In 1871 S. J. Waring, cabinet maker, employed twelve men and four boys. The firm was listed as cabinet makers at 42, 45, 47, 49 & 53 St Anne Street & 2-6 Harker Place, Liverpool (1881) and Bold Street & St Anne Street, Liverpool (1883). Samuel James Waring rapidly expanded the business during the 1880s, furnishing hotels and public buildings throughout Europe. He also founded Waring-White Building Company which built the Liverpool Corn Exchange, Selfridge's department store and the Ritz Hotel and from 1898 also furnished the Carlton Hotel salons. In 1893 S. J. Waring’s son, Samuel Waring junior moved to London and established the Waring business in Oxford Street. In 1900 as Waring and Gillows (a loose association from 1897), the company exhibited at the Paris Exhibition. At this time Warings had their workshops and showrooms in Lancaster, Liverpool and Manchester and a branch in Paris.
