STEPHEN PAINE (1), of Great Ellingham, near Hingham, Norfolk County, England, was born c. 1600; emigrated to Hingham, Massachusetts Bay, with his wife, three children, and four servants, in the ship "Diligent" in 1638. He was made a freeman on June 6, 1639. He was one of the grantees of Governor Bradford in 1641 to the eight square miles, named Rehobeth, moving there with his family in 1643. In 1645, Stephen was elected Representative, or Deputy, to the Court at Plymouth and was re-elected continuously until 1660 and at various times afterwards until 1671. He was a miller by occupation, a large land owner, and a leading citizen. He married, first, Neele "Rose" Adcock (1602/3-1660), the daughter of John and Elizabeth (Eldred) Adcock of Attleborough, Norfolk County, England. He married, second, Alice (_______) Parker (d. 1682), the widow of William Parker, in 1662. He perhaps married, third, Elizabeth ( ), who was named as his wife in his will. Stephen died on August 16, 1679, and was buried on August 21, 1679. His will, dated July 18, 1679, was proven at Plymouth October 30, 1679, and his estate was valued at L6733:15s:10d. He outlived his children and we know the names of only two, Stephen and Nathaniel.

Richard WARREN [scrapbook] 1 was born in 1585 in Hertfordshire, England, United Kingdom. He died 2 before 1628 in Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts, United States. Richard married 3, 4 Elizabeth WALKER on 14 Apr 1610 in Great Amwell, Hertsfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

ANCESTRAL SUMMARY:

More erroneous information has been published about Richard Warren than any other Mayflower passenger, probably because he has so many descendants (note that all seven of his children grew up and married). It is time here to debunk many of the mistakes that have been published over the past hundred years.

Common mistake #1.  Richard Warren's wife is not Elizabeth (Jewett/Jonatt/Juett) Marsh.  This is easily disproven.  Elizabeth (Jewett) Marsh was born in 1614, which makes her not only younger than Richard Warren's two oldest children, but also makes her only fourteen years old when Richard Warren died.  [Mayflower Descendant 2:63].

Common mistake #2.  Richard Warren is not a proven descendant of any royalty, whether it be Sir John de Warrene or Charlemagne.  Richard Warren's parents have not even been identified, despite extensive searches in the records of England (see the Mayflower Quarterly, 51:109-112 for a summary of one such search).

The only concrete things we know about Richard Warren's ancestry are that he was a merchant of London--whether he was born there or not is an entirely different question.  We also know that his wife was named Elizabeth.  He had five daughters baptized in England somewhere, and perhaps the true records will some day be brought to light.

There is a Richard Warren who married an Elizabeth Evans on 1 January 1592/3 in St. Leonards, and a Richard Warren who married an Elizabeth Doucke on 1 November 1596 in Sidmouth, Devon.  However, since Richard's first child was born about 1610, a marriage in 1592 or 1596 seems most unlikely.

The I.G.I. lists the following baptisms of Richard Warrens from its parish register abstractions (1570-1588):

1 January 1570, St. Columb Minor, Cornwall (son of Lawrence)
25 March 1571, St. Matthew Friday Street, London
20 January 1572, Bishops Nympton, Devon (son of Baldwine)
18 January 1573, Burbage, Leicester (son of John)
2 October 1576, Phillack, Cornwall (son of John)
9 August 1580, Sandy, Bedford (son of William)
24 January 1580, St. Peter Cornhill, London (son of John)
12 June 1580, St. Giles Cripplegate, London (son of John)
1 October 1581, Harrow on the Hill, London
26 January 1583, Haughley, Suffolk (son of George)
11 August 1583, Darford, Kent (son of William)
28 August 1585, Redruth, Cornwall (son of Benet)
12 April 1585, Abbey, St. Albans, Hertford (son of William)
2 March 1586, St. Mary, Stoke Newington, London (son of Robert)
25 December 1587, Shillington, Bedford (son of Robert)
3 September 1587, St. Andrew by the Wardrobe, London

As should be plainly obvious, there were many Richard Warrens in England.  If the true Richard Warren is ever identified, it will almost certainly be because the baptisms of his five daughters which should be somewhere in England. There are a few other small clues which may aid researchers looking for records.  First, early Charlestown settler Ralph Spague married Joanna Warren, daughter of a Richard Warren from Fordington St. George, Dorset.  This Richard Warren died in Fordington, Dorset before 1638.  And early Watertown settler John Warren was baptized in Nayland, Suffolk, England in 1585, and he apparently had an uncle named Richard Warren.

BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY:

Richard Warren appears to have been a merchant, who resided in London, and became associated with the Pilgrims and the Mayflower through the Merchant Adventurers.  Richard Warren participated in several of the early explorations made by the Pilgrims in 1620, while looking for a place to settle.  He appears by land records to have been fairly well-to-do.

When he came over on the Mayflower, he left behind his wife and five daughters, planning to have them sent over after things were more settled in the Colony.  His wife and daughters arrived in America in 1623, on the ship Anne.

Nathaniel Morton wrote in his book New England's Memorial, first published in 1669, the following about Richard Warren:

This year [1628] died Mr. Richard Warren, who was an useful instrument and during his life bare a deep share in the difficulties and troubles of the first settlement of the Plantation of New Plymouth.

Richard Warren is an ancestor to many famous Americans.  Among them are Presidents Ulysses S. Grant and Franklin D. Roosevelt; and Alan B. Shepard, Jr., the first American in space and fifth man to walk on the moon.  A published lineage showing Winston Churchill as a descendant of Richard Warren has a questionable generation and is most likely in error.  However, Winston Churchill does appear to be a descendant of Mayflower passenger John Howland's brother Arthur.

Richard Warren's English origins and ancestry have been the subject of much speculation, and countless different ancestries have been published for him, without a shred of evidence to support them. Luckily in December 2002, Edward Davies discovered the missing piece of the puzzle. Researchers had long known of the marriage of Richard Warren to Elizabeth Walker on 14 April 1610 at Great Amwell, Hertford. Since we know the Mayflower passenger had a wife named Elizabeth, and a first child born about 1610, this was a promising record. But no children were found for this couple in the parish registers, and no further evidence beyond the names and timing, until the will of Augustine Walker was discovered in December 2002 by Edward Davies. In the will of Augustine Walker, dated April 1613, he mentions "my daughter Elizabeth Warren wife of Richard Warren", and "her three children Mary, Ann and Sarah." We know that the Mayflower passenger's first three children were named Mary, Ann, and Sarah (in that birth order), and that they were born c1610, c1612, and c1614, so this put the nail in the coffin and we can say with near certainty that Richard Warren of the Mayflower married in Great Amwell, Hertford to Elizabeth Walker, daughter of Augustine Walker. Additional research is currently being sponsored by MayflowerHistory.com to see if anything further can be learned about these families.

Came to America in The Anne in 1623 with her five girls: Mary, Anna, Sarah, Elizabeth, and Abigail.
The maiden name has now been proven. The oft cited claim that she was Elizabeth (Jaunealt) Marsh has been discredited -- the ages on the records of that person just don't agree with what is known. (New information from a probate record of Augustine Walker sheds new light on this. See Richard's notes and Augustine's notes.)
Death: Plymouth Register, in Shurtleff 8:35: "Mistris Elizabeth Warren, an aged widdow, aged aboue 90 yeares, deceased on the second of October, 1673, whoe, haueing liued a godly life, came to her graue as a shoke of corn fully ripe.

JOSEPH WATERMAN'S WILL

By The Editor

JOSEPEH WATERMAN of Marshfield married Sarah Snow3, daughter of Anthony and Abigail2 (Warren) Snow of that town and granddaughter of Richard1 Warren of the Mayflower; but the date of the marriage has not been found.

Joseph and Sarah (Snow) Waterman had five daughters and two sons, and literal copies of their birth records will be found in the Marshfield, Mass., Vital Records, printed in the second and third volumes of this magazine. These children, all of whom are mentioned in their father's will, were:

Sarah Waterman4, born 4 May, 1674, married Solomon Hewitt, and left issue.

Joseph Waterman4, born 2 or 20 January, 1676 (there are two entries on the records), married his first cousin, Lusanna Snow. (Josiah3, Abigaill Warren, Richard1), and left issue.

Elizabeth Waterman4, born 7 September, 1679, married her second cousin, Ichabod Bartlett. (Benjamin3, Mary2 Warren, Richard1), and died before her father, leaving issue. After her death Ichabod Bartletti married, second. Desire Arnold5 (Elizabeth Gray4, Mary Winslow3, Mary2 Chilton, James1), and had children by her also.

Abigail Waterman4, born 31 December, 1681, married Kenelm Winslow, and left issue. After Abigail's death, Kenelm Winslow married, second, Ann Winslow4, Taylor, widow of John Taylor and daughter of Edward Winslow3 (Mary2, Chilton, James1), but had no children by her.

146 Joseph Waterman's Will

Anthony Waterman4, born 4 June, 1684, married Elizabeth Arnold5 (Elizabeth Gray4, Mory Winslow3, Mary2 Chilton, James1), and left issue. After Anthony's death, his widow Elizabeth married, second, Jonathan5 Alden (Jonathan2, John1), and had children by him.

Bethiah Waterman4, born 20 August, 1687, married Samuel Doggett, and left issue.

Lydia Waterman4, born 20 February, 1689, married John Thomas, and left issue.

On the original records of Marshfield, the death of Joseph Waterman appears is follows: "Mr Joseph Waterman Decased January the 3 :1711*, the last two figures of the year Having been worn off His gravestone in the Winslow Cemetery, at Marshfield, states that he died in January, 1711, aged 62 years, but the day of the month was omitted.

Sarah (Snow) Waterman was buried in the same cemetery, and her gravestone states that she died 11 September, 1741, aged 90 years, 3 months .

The inscriptions on both of these stones were incorrectly printed in an article on "Marshfield Inscriptions", by Miss Marcia A. Thomas, in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register for October, 1850; and she again incorrectly printed Joseph's stone in her "Memorials of Marshfield", published in Boston, in 1854. And in the July, 1854, N.E. H. G. Register, in "Deaths and Burials from the Early Records of Marshfield", she incorrectly stated that "Mr. Joseph Waterman" died "Jan.-, 1707 - 8", thus putting his death more than eighteen months before he made his will.

Joseph Waterman made his will on 6 August 1709, his inventory was taken on 16 February, 1710/11, and the will was probated on 12 March, 1710, as shown by the probate records here printed. Combining the original town and gravestone records with the probate records, there can be no doubt that he died 3 January, 1710/11, the inventory was taken 16 February, 1710/11, and the will was probated 12 March, 1710/11.

The original will is still in the files of the Plymouth County, Mass., Registry of Probate, and the accompanying illustration (facing page 145) reproduces the second page of this interesting document, with the autograph signature of Joseph Waterman. The inventory is the only other original document in the files.
