From my book "Line of Descent of George Roger Gilbert"


Thursday, October 17, 1996

Went to the Vestal Public Library hoping to make a connection between Mary (Fletcher) Rowley and Moses Fletcher of the Mayflower.

I went into the Special Books room and looked at the several books taken from the MAYFLOWER ASSOCIATIONS yearbooks. These books are genealogies of different Mayflower Passengers families for 5 generations. There was none for Moses Fletcher and I later found out that perhaps his progeny remained in Holland. There is one entire book on Edward Fuller's descendants. Others are Allerton, Aldon, Brown, Soule, Warren and more.

I took each one and looked through the index for familiar names. I found the names Little and Tilden in the book about Mayflower passenger Richard Warren. Further investigation showed that his daughter, Anna Little's, daughter, Hannah, married Stephen Tilden. He is an ancestor of Anna Hackley Bliss, so she and myself are descended from Richard Warren who came to America on the "Mayflower" and signed the Mayflower Compact.


1. RICHARD WARREN b. prob. England: d. Plymouth 1628. He m. prob. England prior to 1610 ELIZABETH ______, b. ca. 1580; d. Plymouth 2 Oct. 1673 aged above 90 years.

The wife and 5 daughters came on the "Anne" in 1623. In "Mourt's Relation" under date of "sixt of December" it is stated "and three of London, Richard Warren, Steven Hopkins and Edward Dotte ..." This statement that he was from London is all we know about the origin of Richard Warren despite considerable research to learn more. (See MQ a51: 109-112).

The 22 May 1627 Division of Cattle names Richard Warren, wife Elizabeth Warren, Nathaniell Warren, Joseph Warren, Mary Warren, Anna Warren, Sara Warren, Elizabeth Warren, and Abigail Warren.

In a deed dated 28 Sept. 1629 the land which Thomas Clarke sold to William Bradford was bounded on one side by land of "Widow Warren."

At the 7 March 1616/7 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 sonnes in law Richard Church, Robert Bartlett and Thomas Little in marriage with their wives, her daughters.

In a codicil to his will dated 16 July 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.

On 4 March 1673/4 Mary Bartlett, the wife of Robert Barlett ack. she had received full satisfaction for her share of the estate of Mistriss 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.
