The Great Migration Begins: Richard Warren. Origin: London. Migration: 1620 on Mayflower. First Residence: Plymouth. Estate: In the 1623 Plymouth division of land Richard Warren received an uncertain number of acres (perhaps two) as a passenger on the Mayflower, and five acres as a passenger on the Anne (presumably for his wife and children) [PCR 12:4-6]. In the 1627 Plymouth division of cattle Richard Warren, his wife Elizabeth Warren, Nathaniel Warren, Joseph Warren, Mary Warren, Anna Warren, Sarah Warren, Elizabeth Warren and Abigail Warren were the first nine persons in the ninth company [PCR 12:12]. He was one of the purchasers [PCR 2:177]. In the 25 March 1633 Plymouth tax list Widow Warren was assessed 12s., and in the list of 27 Mar 1634, 9s. [PCR 1:10, 27]. On 1 July 1633 "Mrs. Warren and Robt. Bartlet" were allowed to mow where they did the previous year, and again 14 March 1635/6 [PCR 1:15, 41]. On 28 Oct 1633, a grant of Richard Warren's land on which he was required to erect a dwelling, returned to the court "for want of building" and it was regranted to Mr. Ralph Fogg, provided he pay Widow Warren sufficiently for her fence remaining there [PCR 1:18]. On 7 Mar 1636/7, "it is agreed upon, by the consent of the whole Court, that Elizabeth Warren, widow, the relict of Mr. Richard Warren, deceased, shall be entered, and stand, and be purchaser instead of her said husband, as well because that (he dying before he had performed the said bargain) the said Elizabeth performed the same after his decease, as also for the establishing of the lots of lands given formerly by her unto her sons-in--law Richard Church, Robert Bartlett and Thomas Little, in marriage with their wives, her daughters" [PCR 1:54, 2:177]. On 5 May 1640 "Richard Church, Rob[er]t Bartlett, Thomas Little, & Mrs. Elizabeth Warren are granted enlargements at the heads of their lots to the foot of the Pyne Hills, leaving a way betwixt them and the Pyne Hills, for cattle and carts to pass" [PCR 1:152]. On 11 June 1653, as the result of a disagreement between Mrs. Elizabeth Warren and her son, Nathaniel, and a petition offered in court by Mrs. Jane Collier on behalf of her grandchild, Sarah, wife of Nathaniel Warren, the court chose four indifferent men to settle the matter of access to lands [MD 2:64, citing PCLR 2:73]. On 4 March 1673/4 Mary Bartlett, wife of Robert Bartlett, came into this court and owned "that she hath received full satisfaction for whatever she might claim as due from the estate of Mistris Elizabeth Warren, deceased, and John Cooke, in the behalf of all her sisters, testified the same before the court, and the court doth hereby settle the remainder of the said estate on Joseph Warren" [PCR 5:139-40]. BIRTH: By about 1578 based on estimated date of marriage. DEATH: Plymouth 1628. ("This year did Mr. Richard Warren, who hath been mentioned before in this book, and was an useful instrument; and during his life bore a deep share in the difficulties and troubles of the first settlement of the plantation of New-Plymouth" [Morton 85]. MARRIAGE: By about 1609 Elizabeth _____; she died at Plymouth on 2 Oct 1673, aged about 90 (probably exxaggeration) [PCR 8:35]. (Elizabeth's maiden name has been given as "March" in many sources, without documentation). CHILDREN: i. Mary, b. say 1609; m. say 1629 Robert Bartlett (date based on estimated age of children at their marriages). ii. Ann, b. say 1613; m. Plymouth 19 Apr 1633 Thomas Little [PCR 1:13]. iii. Sarah, b. ay 1614; m. Plymouth 28 Mar 11634 John Cooke Junior [PCR 1:29], son of Francis Cooke. iv. Elizabeth, b. say 1615; m. by 1635/6 Richard Church (he shared mowing land with Mrs. Warren 14 Mar 1635/6 [PCR 1:41]). v. Abigail, b. say 1619; m. Plymouth 8 (or 9) Nov 1639 Anthony Snow [PCR 1:134]. vi. Nathaniel, b. Plymouth say 1624 (Bradford says he was born here, and his mother was a passenger on the Anne in 1623); m. Plymouth 19 Nov 1645 Sarah Walker [PE 2:94]. (See William Collier for discussion of her possible ancestry.) vii. Joseph, b. Plymouth by 1627; m. about 1653 Priscilla Faunce, daughter of John Faunce (eldest child b. Plymouth 23 Sep 1653 [PCR 8:33]. /// COMMENTS: In his accounting of the passengers on the Mayflower Bradford included "Mr. Richard Warren, but his wife and children were left behind and came afterwards" [Bradford 442]. As of 1651, Bradford reported that "Mr. Richard Warren lived some four or five years and had his wife come over to him, by whom he had two sons before [he] died, and one of them is married and hath two children. So his increase is four. But he had five daughters more came over with his wife, who are all married and living, and have many children [Bradford 445-46]. Banks argued that Bradford's language in the sentence above meant that Richard Warren had two wives, with the first of whom he had five daughters and with the second of whom, Elizabeth, he had two sons [English Homes 92-93], and deForest agreed with him [Moore Anc 562}. Many attempts, all fruitless, havel been made to discover the English origin of Richard Warren and the identity of his wife [MQ 51:109-12]. Richard Warren was in the party that explored the outer cape in erly Dec 1620; he was dscribed as being of London [Mourt 32]. On 5 July 1635, Thomas Williams, servant of widow Warren, confessed that "there being some dissention between him and his dame, she, after other things, exhorted him to fear God & do his duty, he answered he neither feared God, nor the devil" [PCR 1:35]. He was reproved and released [PCCR 1:35]. On 5 Jan 1635/6 widow Warren paid 30s. to Thomas Clarke for borrowing his boat, and although returning it to a place of usual safety, an extraordinary storm wrecked it [PCR 1:36]. On 3 June 1639 "Mr. Andrew Hellot" was ordered to pay Mrs. Warren 10s.to settle an account between them [PCR 7:12]. Bibliographic Note: In 1938 L. Effingham deForest published a thorough study of Richard Warren [Moore Anc 561-70]. Robert S. Wakefield, Janice A. Beebe and others have prepared the Richard Warren volume in the General Society of Mayflower Descendants' series of "pink books," the fifth edition of which was published in 1995 [MFIP Warren].

Mayflower Families Through 5 Generations Vol. XVIII Richard Warren: pg 1 Gov. Bradford wrote "Mr. Richard Warren lived some 4 or 5 years & had his wife come over to him, by whom he had two sons before [he] died, and one of them is married & hath 2 children. So his increase is 4. But he had 5 daughters more come over with his wife, who are all married and living, and have many children." The wife & 5 daughters came to Plymouth on the Anne in 1623. /p/ In "Mourt's Relation" under date of "sixt of December" it is stated "and 3 of London, Richard Warren, Steeven Hopkins & Edward Dotte..." This state that he was from London is all we know about the origin of Richard Warren despite considerable research to learn more. (See MQ 51:109-112). /p/ The 5/22/1627 Division of Cattle names Richard Warren, wife Elizabeth Warren, Nathaniell Warren, Joseph Warren, Mary Warren, Anna Warren, Sara Warren, Elizabeth Warren & Abigail Warren. /p/ In a deed dated 9/28/1629 the land which Thomas Clarke sold to William Bradford was bounded on one side by the land of "widow Warren." /p/ At the 3/7/1636-7 court it was agreed that Elizabeth Warren, widow, the relict of Mr. Richard Warren, deceased, was to be a "Purchaser" as she had performed the bargain after her husband's decease, and also for confirming the land formerly given by her to her son-in-law Richard Church, Robert Bartlett and Thomas Little in marriage with their wives, her daughters. /p/ In a codicil to his will dated 7/16/1667 Nathaniel Warren mentions his mother Elizabeth Warren, his brother Joseph Warren and his sisters Mary Bartlett Sr., Anna Little, Sarah Cooke, Elizabeth Church and Abigail Snow. /p/ On 3/4/1673-4 Mary Bartlett, the wife of Robert Bartlett, ack. she had received full satisfaction for her share of the estate of Mistris Elizabeth Warren, deceased; and John Cooke in behalf of all her sisters testified to the same. The court settled the remainder of the estate on Joseph Warren. pg 3 ...perhaps the son of Robert & Alice (Barker) Bartlett. /p/ Robert Bartlett arrived on the Anne in 1623 and received 1 acre in the 1623 Division of Land. He was unmarried in the 1627 Division of Cattle. He was in the 1633 list of Freemen. /p/ On 7/1/1633 Mrs. Warren and Robt. Bartlet were to mow where they did last year, implying a marriage to Mary by 1632 or earlier.
