WARREN, sometimes spelt WARIN, or WARINS, ABRAHAM, Salem 1637, was of Ipswich 1648, where he d. 1654, his will of 22 Apr. in that yr. (Essex Inst. I. 10) ment. d. Sarah, and wid. not her mo. ARTHUR, Weymouth, was in Mar. 1638, charg. with keep. comp. with the w. of Clement Briggs, and in June foll. she was enjoin. not to come into his comp. but this does not. of necessity, prove any guilt, and soon after he m. and had Arthur, b. 17 Nov. 1639; Abigail, 27 Oct. 1640; Jacob, 26 Oct. 1642; and Joseph, whose date of b. is not mark. nor is d. of the f. ascert. He was one of the petitnrs. 1645, for gr. of the Narraganset ld. suppos. to be forfiet. by the heresy of Gorton, Holden, and thee others just proprs. Abigail m. a Wright. ARTHUR, Chelmsford, perhaps s. of the preced. m. Abigail, d. of John Rogers of Billerica, and d. 25 Apr. 1671. His will of 7 Mar. preced. speaks of w. and ch. and the young wid. d. 15 June foll. Her will, casual. burnt in Oct. was pro. 13 Nov. next. BENJAMIN, Plymouth, s. of the first Joseph, m. 1697, Hannah Morton, had Benjamin, b. 1698, d. young; Abigail, 1700; Hannah, 1704; Nathaniel, 1706; Benjamin, again, 1709; and Pricilla, 1712. By sec. w. Esther Cushman, d. or wid. of unkn. Cushman, m. 1716, h had Joseph, and Mary, wh. prob. both d. young, and he d. 1745. 

DANIEL, Watertown, s. of the first John, b. in Eng. m. 10 Dec. 1650, Mary, eldest d. of Ellis Barron, had Mary, b. 29 Nov. 1651; Daniel, 6 Oct. 1653; Hannah; Sarah, 4 July 1658; Elizabeth 17 Sept. 1660; Susanna, 26 Dec. 1663, d. under 15 yrs.; John, 5 Mar. 1666; Joshua, 4 July 1668; and Grace, 14 Mar. 1672. He sw. fidel. 1652, was selectman betw. 1680 and 98, twelve yrs. Mary m. 29 May 1668, John Child, and next, 13 Apr. 1677, Nathaniel Fiske; Hannah m. 24 Sept. 1675, David Mead; Elizabeth m. 6 Dec. 1681 Jonathan Tainter; and Grace m. 20 Jan. 1691, Joseph Morse. DANIEL, Watertown, s. of the preced. freem. 1690, m. 19 Dec. 1678, Elizabeth d. of John Whitney of the same, had Elizabeth b. 16 Oct. 1679, d. at 16 yrs.; Ruth, 15 Oct. 1681; Mary, 25 Jan. 1684, d. young; Daniel, 30 Apr. 1686; Hannah, 25 Jan. 1691; Sarah, wh. was bapt. 14 Dec. 1701; Jonas, or possib. Josiah, 25 July 1695; Jonas, 30 Apr. 1697; Deliverance, 10 Oct. 1699; and Mary, bapt. 2 May 1703. He was oft. selectman, rep. 1701. EPHRAIM, Boston, by w. Elizabeth had sarah, b. 10 Aug. 1685, but no more is kn. of him. 

HUMPHERY, a man of wh. no more is heard, but that in 1678 he was nam. by the crown with Edmund Randolph and some of the princ. gentlemen, to take the Gov's. o. of alleg. as told by Hutch. I. 330, of wh. the Gov. inform. the Gen. Ct. that in Aug. he perform the duty as in Col. Rec. V. 191. Perhaps he was nothing but an official and soon went home. JACOB, Chelmsord, freem. 1674, perhaps was one of the first sett. at Plainfield a. 1700, or it may have been a s. of the same [[vol. 4, p. 424]] name. James, Kittery 1656 or earlier, then had gr. of ld. was of the gr. jury 1666, liv. in the upper part, wh. bec. Berwick, made his will 9 Dec. 1700, which was pro. 24 Dec. 1702, names w. Margaret, s. Gilbert, and James, ds. Margaret, and Grizzel, and gr. ch. Jane Grant, and James Stackpole. JAMES, Plymouth, s. perhaps youngest of Nathaniel of the same, m. 1687, Sarah, eldest d. of the sec. Edward Dotey, had John; Edward; both d. young; Sarah; Alice; Patience; James, b. 1700; Hope; Mercy; Mary; and Elizabeth of wh. the last three d. unm. He was gr. f. of the emin. James, Presid. of Mass. Counc. 1779. 

JOHN, Watertown, came prob. 1630, in the fleet with Sir Richard Saltonstall, then aged a. 45, and hav. w. and ch. (four certain. are nam. in his will, and of them only Elizabeth could be b. here.). There may have been others, but no rec. of b. or d. is found. He was adm. freem. 18 May 1631, chos. selectman 1636-40. Late in life he fell under the censure of the laws, unwisely levelled at dissent. from the relig. course of the major part of the inhab. and Bond informs us of proceedings against him in 1651, 4, and 61; but he d. in peace, 13 Dec. 1667, aged 82. His w. Margaret d. 6 Nov. 1662. She was prob. the mo. of all his ch. John, b. 1622; Mary; and Daniel, b. 1628; beside Elizabeth wh. n. a. 1654, James Knapp. Mary m. 30 Oct. 1642, John Bigelow. He had good est. in lds. in W. His will of 30 Nov. 1667, names the four ch. and Mary, w. of Daniel, gr.ch. Daniel W. and Mary Bigelow. JOHN, Watertown, s. of the preced. prob. the freem. of 1645, n. 11 July 1667, Michael, d. of Robert Jennison, wid. of Richard Bloise of the same, had Margaret, b. 6 May 1668; Sarah, 25 Jan. 1671; Elizabeth 8 July 1673; Mary, 25 May 1675; John, 21 May 1678; Grace, 12 Mar. 1680; and Samuel, 23 Jan. 1683; was a capt. and .d 1703. His will of 12 Jan. of that yr. was pro. 22 Feb. foll. It names all the v\ch. exc. Sarah, wh perhaps d. young. Elizabeth m. 18 Oct. 1705, Daniel Harrington, and Mary m. 30 Dec. 1698, Joseph Pierce. 

JOHN, Ipswich 1654. JOHN, Boston, tobacconist, or cardmaker, as in the will he is call. by first w. had Joshua; Thomas; Mary, b. a. 1665; and perhaps Sarah; but the name of h is w. is unkn. nor is any b. found on the rec. so that it seems prob. that he had these ch. in ano. town, where the mo. may have also d. I think he was early of Exetere, there m. 21 Oct. 1650, Deborah Wilson, wh. d. 26 June 1668. In 1669, he m. Elizabeth wid. of John Combs, wh. had d. in May of that yr. preced. She had first been wid. of Thomas Barlow. By this w. he had Nathaniel, b. 27 May 1670, and this w. d. next yr. or early in 1672, for in Feb. of this yr. he exhibit. inv. of her goods, and engag. to fulfil her desire towards here three ds. and his s. by hr, in their distrib. to one Barlow, two Combs, and Nathaniel, This s. and Mary Combs, in 1685, chose for their guardian, Joseph Ryall of Charlestown, wh. they call. [[vol. 4, p. 425]] uncle. A third w. Elizabeth brought him Abigail, 10 May 1676; and John, posthum. 10 Feb. 1678. He may have been the freem. of 1670, and d. in July 1677, mak. his will 10, wh. was pro. 31 of that mo. and his wid. 4 Oct. 1681, bec. sec. w. of Samuel Lendall, by contr. of that date, in wh. he provid. good portion for her, as did also her third h. John Hayward, the Not. Pub. to wh. 1685, wh. bec. sec. w. and for her fourth h. she had a rich man, Phineas Wilson of Hartford. Neither of the last three hs. had by her any ch. He seems to have had small est. and in his will is nothing of interest exc. the gift to his s. Joshua, "my engine with wh. I cut tabacco." JOHN, Ipswich 1670, may have been the man at Salem long aft. wh. was a spinner, and in 1685 had loan from the town treas. of £5. to pay his work people. See Felt, Ann. II. 159. 

JOHN, Watertown, s. of the first Daniel, m. 22 May 1683, Mary, d. of Jonathan Brown of the same, had John, b. 15 Mar. 1685; Jonathan, 26, bapt. 29 Apr. 1688; and Daniel, bapt. 1 Sept. 1689; was ens. freem. 1690, and d. 11 July 1703. His wid. n. 14 Mar. 1704, Samuel Harrington. JOHN, Watertown, s. of John sec. m. Abigail, d. of John Hastings, had John, b. 3. Apr. 1701; Sarah, 20 Sept. 1702; Samuel, 18 Mar. 1704; Thomas, 11 Mar. 1706; and David, 22 June 1708. His w. d. 19 July 1710, and he m. 14 May 1711, Lydia, d. of Nathaniel Fiske, had Benjamin, 4 Apr. 1715; David, 8 Jan. 1717; Abigail, 28 Oct. 1719; Lucy, 26 Oct. 1721; William, 21 Oct. 1723, d. at 15 yrs.; and John, bapt. 1725. He d. next yr. and his wid. m. 17 June 1730, Benjamin Harrington. JOSEPH, Plymouth, s. of Richard, but not eldest in my judgm. tho. so call. in the Warren Genal. that may hav unconsciously been influenc. by the baptismal designat. was not brot. by his mo. from Eng. m. a. 1651, Priscilla, sis. of the famous rul. elder Thomas Faunce, whose f. had been fellow-passeng. with his mo. was held in gr. esteem 1677, rep. by ann. elect. 1681-6, and d. 1689. His wid. d. 1707. Of his ch. it will be very hard to find exact dates of b. but the order is confident. trusted; Mercy, b. 23 Sept. 1653; Abigail, 15 Mar. 1655, d. young; Joseph, 8 Jan. 1657; Patience, 15 Mar. 1660; Elizabeth 15 Aug. 1662; and Benjamin, 8 Jan. 1670. Mercy m. Winsor says, 1674, or 5 Feb. 1675, as the Bradford Geneal. has it, John Bradford, liv. with him near 62 yrs. and d. Mar. 1747. Patience m. 1686, Samuel Lewis, as the name seems prob. to be read, and Elizabeth m. 19 Jan. 1688, Josiah Phinney. It is observ. that his male descend. since the fourth generat. are confin. to those of his gr.-gr.ch. Benjamin. Joseph, Plymouth, eldest s. of the preced. m. 1692, Mehitable Wilder, had Joseph, b. 1694; and Priscilla, 1696; and he d. the same yr. 

JOSEPH, Roxbury, housewright, sec. s. of Peter of Boston, m. Deborah, d. of Samuel Williams of Roxbury, had Samuel, b. 13 Aug. 1694, d. in few days; Joseph, 2 Feb. [[vol. 4, p. 426]] 1696; Ebenezer, 26 Jan. 1699; Sarah, 27 July 1702; John, 18 Sept. 1704; and Hannah, 31 Mar. 1707; and he d. 13 July 1729. His wid. d. 6 Oct. 1743. In the Geneal. of Warren, print. 1854, p. 45, the most sumptous vol. of genealogy ever issued from the press on our side of the water, they are said to have had eight ch. but the rec. contains no more than the above, nor does the pedigree at the opening of the book. In his will of 22 Jan. bef. d. he gives all his real and personal est. to s. Joseph, exc. the household goods giv. to w. orders him to pay her L8. per an. keep a cow for her, find. 2 bls. of cider, and one cord of wood per an. for her, beside the choice of one room in his dw.-ho. during her wid. But of the ch. Samuel and Sarah are not ment. so that I presume the first was d. and the other had got changed into Deborah, wh. is the name marked aft. Ebenezer and John, yet before Hannah, and to ea. of these four, Joseph was direct. to pay £65. He was gr.f. of the illustrious patriot, Maj.-Gen. Joseph Warren, k. at Bunker Hill. JOSHUA, Watertown, s. of Daniel the first, m. Rebecca, d. of Caleb Church of the same, had Lydia, b. 3 Nov. 1696; Joshua, 4 June 1698; Nathaniel, 25 May 1700; Rebecca; Elizabeth 19 June 1704; Abigail, 20 Dec. 1705; Susanna, 2 Feb. 1707; Hannah, 2 June 1708; Prudence, 5 Dec. 1709; Daniel, 28 July 1712; and Phineas, 21 June 1718; and d. 30 Jan. 1760. 

NATHANIEL, Plymouth, s. prob. elder of Richard, m. 1645, Sarah Walker, as the Geneal. says, and the work names ch. Richard; Jabez, wh. d. young; Sarah, b. 29 Aug. 1649; Hope, 7 Mar. 1651; Jane, 10 Jan. if Col. Rec. be true, or 31 Dec. 1652; Elizabeth 5 Sept. 1654; Alice, 2 Aug. 1656; Mercy, 20 Feb. 1658; Mary, 9 Mar. 1660; Nathaniel, 19 Mar. 1662; John, 23 Oct. 1663, d. young; and James, 7 Nov. 1665; and d. 1667. Very short abstr. of his will is found in Geneal. Reg. VII. 177. His wid. d. 1700. Sarah m. somebody call. Balckwell, unkn. to me; Jane m. 19 Sept. 1672, Benjamin Lombard of Barnstable; Elizabeth m. a Green, but the individ. is unkn.; Alice m. Thomas Gibbs; Mercy m. Jonathan Delano; and it is said that Mary m. but the h. is unkn. and the dates of all the ms.but one are defic. NATHANIEL, Plymouth, s. of the preced. m. Pheebe Murdock, it is said, but left no issue, was a man of reput. and d. 1707. 

PETER, Boston 1659, mariner, purchas. 23 Mar. of that yr. from Theodore Atkinson, dwel.-ho. and ld. m. 1 Aug. 1660, Sarah, d. of Robert Tucker of that part of Dorchester, wh. soon aft. was incorp. as Milton, had John, b. 8 Sept. 1661, d. young; Joseph, 19 Feb. 1663; Benjamin, 25 July 1665; Elizabeth 4 Jan. 1668; these three bapt. 29 May 1670; Robert, 14, bapt. 25 Dec. 1670; Ebenezer, 11 Feb. bapt. 2 Mar. 1673; and by sec. w. Hannah had Peter, bapt. 6 June 1675, d. soon; Peter, again, b. 20, bapt. 23 Apr. 1676; Hannah, b. 19 May 1680, whose bapt. is not found; [[vol. 4, p. 427]] Mary, 21, bapt. 25 Nov. 1683; and Robert, 27 Dec. 1684, bapt. 4. Jan. foll. but the town rec. blunders the name of the mo. into Abigail. He had third w. Esther, whose name was, but whether as wid. of maid. is uncert. Woodward, rec. into the third ch. 11 Oct. 1687, as had been the first w. 22 May 1670, and the sec. 30 Apr. 1675. He d. 15 Nov. 1704, by his will of 20 June 1700, provid. for w. during wid. not otherwise, yet making her joint excor. with s. Joseph, and nam. other ch. only Ebenezer, Peter, Robert, and Hannah. I find no later acco. of any of them exc. Joseph, bef. ment. 

RALPH, Salem 1638, of wh. Felt could tell no more than that a gr. of ld. was that yr. confirm. to him. RICHARD, Plymouth 1620, came in the Mayflower, leav. w. Elizabeth and five ds. to come in the third sh. 1623, d. 1628, hav. no other ch. but those b. in Eng. viz. Mary, wh. m. 1628, Robert Bartlett; Ann m. 19 Apr. 1633, Thomas Little; Sarah m. 28 Mar. 1634, John Cooke jr.; Elizabeth m. 1636, Richard Church, d. at Hingham, 4 Mar. 1670; and Abigail m. 1639, Anthony Snow of Marshfield; beside the two s. Nathaniel, and Joseph, b. here, bef. ment. all liv. in 1650. His wid. wh. join. with the first purch. of Dartmouth, d. 2 Oct. 1673, aged a. 90, says the rec. but fondness for exagger. makes it 93. RICHARD, Plymouth, s. of Nathaniel of the same, perhaps eldest, m. it is said, and rem. to Middleborough, there d. a. 1696, leav. s. James, b. 13 Jan. 1680, at P. wh. had no ch. and Samuel, 7 Mar. 1683, whose progeny is in that neighb. SAMUEL, Watertown, youngest s. of the sec. John of the same, m. 8 Jan. 1707, Lydia Cutting, had Sarah, and Lydia, tw. b. 19 Aug. 1714; Samuel, 19 July 1719; Elizabeth 16 May 1721; Ephraim, 5 Apr. 1723; Nathan, 10 July 1725; John, bapt. 23 Aug. 1727; and Mary, 17 Aug. 1729. He d. 13 Nov. 1759; and his wid. d. 15 July 1766. THOMAS, Salem 1640, a witness to the will said to be the first brot. into Ct. for that shire. THOMAS, Boston, m. 14 Dec. 1694, Sarah Fitch; but as no more is heard of him, I doubt he was only trans. resid. But he may have been a soldier in Mosely's comp. Dec. 1675. 

WILLIAM, Hartford, freem. 1658, and perhaps was sw. again in 1665, ea. vol. of the Col. Rec. of Trumbull prov. the right, m. Elizabeth d. of John Crow, had two ws. as in his will of 20 Oct. 1689, he tells, without nam. them, assign. to first w. three s. John, William, and Thomas, and to the liv. w. four ch. of wh. Abraham was one. He d. soon aft. for his inv. is of 1 Nov. in that yr. So we may see the wild work of tradit. that he had only Abigail, wh. m. 14 Jan. 1693, Richard Lord, and aft. Jan. 1713 m. Rev. Timothy Woodbridge. His wid. m. Phineas Wilson, a rich merch. it was erron. said, but she was very infirm or insane, and certain. Wilson found a better w. Strangely out of place is the confusion a. the wid. of Phineas Wilson, in the address of Mr. Day, Presid. of the Conn. Hist. Soc. 26 Dec. [[vol. 4, p. 428]] 1843, at the foundat. of thee beautiful edifice for the Wadsworth Athenaeum, title to the realty being deduc. from her. But great uncertainty is found in the identity of the w. of Richard Lord; and aft. large investigat. it is clear, that no derivation from, or connection with, Hartford William can be traced. Certain. thee wid. of Phineas Wilson did not m. Lord, but her d. Abigail did. 

WILLIAM, Boston, mariner, m. 1 Nov. 1690, Abiel Rogers, had Mary, b. 24 Sept. foll. but he had on 11 June preced. made his will in favor of the mo. and ch. unborn, nam. w. his excor. yet as it was not pro. bef. 10 July 1706, he prob. liv. to near this date, and had no other ch. or went on a voyage and d. aboard. So common. was this name in Eng. diffus. over the E. S. and W. shores, that I can find no proof of connex. betw. the Plymouth , Watertown, and Boston fams.

WARRINER, or WARRENER, JAMES, Springfield, eldest s. of William of the same, took o. of alleg. 31 Dec. 1678, or the day aft. m. 31 Mar. 1664, Elizabeth d. of Joseph Baldwin the first of Milford, had Samuel, b. 21 Nov. 1666, d. at 2 yrs.; James, 19 July 1668; Elizabeth 1 Aug. 1670; William, 6 Jan. 1673; Hannah, 15 Feb. 1675; Joseph, 6 Nov. 1677; Samuel, again, 26 Jan. 1680; Ebenezer, 4 Mar. 1682; and Mary, 1 Apr. 1685. His w. d. 24 Apr. 1687, and he m. 10 July 1689, Sarah, d. of Alexander Alvord, had Sarah, 1690; Jonathan, 1692; John, 29 Nov. 1694, d. in few mos.; John, again, 1696, d. young; Benjamin, 15 Apr. 1698; and David, 8 Oct. 1701. This w. d. 16 May 1704, and he m. 29 Dec. foll. Mary, wid. of Benjamin Stebbins, being her third h. but had no more ch. and d. 14 May 1727. His wid. d. seven days aft. Of these fifteen ch. twelve were m. and the lot of the youngest was to be blest with eight s. and four ds. 

JOSEPH, Hadley, younger br. of the preced. sw. alleg. 8 Feb. 1679, m. 25 Nov. 1668, Mary d. of Richard Montague of the same, had Mary, b. 1669; Joseph, 6 Jan. 1672, d. soon; Joseph, again, 6 Jan. 1673, d. young; Hannah, 1674; Ebenezer, 1676; Dorcas, 1678; Abigail, 1680, d. young; Joanna, 1682; and Elizabeth 1686; rem. 1687; to Enfield, where his w. d. 22 July 1689, aged a. 47. He m. 15 July 1691, Sarah, wid. of Daniel Collins, had Abigail and Mary, tw. 4 May 1692; d. 1697; and his wid. m. Obadiah Abbee. RALPH, Marblehead, wh. was fin. Sept. 1639 for being at excess. drink. at Thomas Gray's, may have been only a trans. person, not inhab. At least no more is heard of him. 

WILLIAM, Springfield, freem. 2 May 1638, m. 31 July 1639, Joanna Searl, as Mr. Boltwood reads thee name, d. of John, as he thinks, but Mr. Judd is sure the name was Scant, had James, b. 21 Jan. 1641; Hannah, 17 Aug. 1643; Joseph, 6 Feb. 1645; and his w. d. 7 Feb. 1661. He m. 2 Oct. 1661, sec. w. Elizabeth wid. of Luke Hitchcock of Wethersfield, and d. 2 June [[vol. 4, p. 429]] 1676. His wid. m. Joseph Baldwin of Hadley. Elizabeth W. wh. m. John Strong jr. was perhaps his sis. or the name may be wrong. Hannah, his only d. m. 1 Nov. 1660, Thomas Noble.

WARWICK, or WARRICK, HENRY, Saco 1636, had s. John and two ds. and d. a. 1673. Folsom, 124, tells that commonly the name is writ. Waddock, but not by the owner; that one d. Joan m. 1658, John Helson; and the other d. m. John Tenney of Scarborough, thence driv. by Ind. hostil. with her mo. to Gloucester, by or bef. 1690; and the f. was an active and useful man. JOHN, Saco, s. of the preced. was one of the chief men of the place, but rem. to Scarborough.

WASHBURN, or WASHBORNE, BENJAMIN, Bridgewater, s. of the sec. John of the same, one of the many hundreds whose lives were lost, without renown or benefit, in the expedit. of Sir William Phips against Quebec. He made his will bef. embark. but left no ch. prob. was not m. HOPE, Stratford, is among the freem. in 1669, tho. Trumbull in Col. Rec. II. 522, gives the name without h. Perhaps he was s. of William, m. Mary, d. of Francis Stiles of Windsor, had Sarah, b. Dec. 1661; John, May 1666; William, Mar. 1668; Samuel, Mar. 1670; Ephraim, 1673; Mary; and Jane; perhaps the last two at Derby, where he d. 1696. In Nov. of that yr. an agreem. was made for div. the est. by the wid. and all the ch. exc. Sarah, John, and Ephraim. Mary m. 1694, John Johnson; William and Samuel were inhabs. at D. 1702-17. William m. 1696, Hannah Wooster.

JOHN, Plymouth 1632, came, I suppose from Evesham, Co. Worcester, and in 16354, his w. Margaret, aged 49, with ch. John, 14; and Philip, 11, foll. him in the sh. Elizabeth and Ann from London, as by certif. of the mayor and the min. of E. He was of Duxbury side of the water, and bec. one of the orig. sett. of Bridgewater, and d. bef. 1670.

He had prob. liv. at Duxbury some yrs. but rem. bef. 1670, and mad his will 1686. Mary m. Samuel Kinsley; Elizabeth m. James Howard, and next Edward Sealey; Jane m. William Orcutt jr.; and Sarah m. 1697, John Ames. JOHN, Stratford, s. of William, m. 7 June 1655, Mary, d. of Richard Butler, had John, b. 20 Nov. 1657. He prob. rem. to Hempstead, L. I.
