  • Notes 
    • Richard came to America on the famous "Mayflower" voyage. He was not one of the Puritans fleeing religious persecution for Leyden Holland, but rather was one of the "strangers" picked up inLondon by the ship (the "strangers", over 30 men and families, comprised more than half the Mayflower passengers). The Mayflower, having departed Plymouth England 6 September 1620, landed inAmerica later that year. Richard's wife and five daughters came later aboard the "Anne" in 1623. He was not one of the Leyden, Holland Pilgrims, but instead had been a merchant at Greenwich,county of Kent, England (Directory of Ancestral Heads).
      He joined the Pilgrims in Southampton and, upon their landing at Plymouth, was one of ten men chosen to be in the exploring party, and was one of those surprised by the Indians in "TheFirst Encounter". Though Warren appears to have been all but excluded from some Pilgrim histories such as Bradford's, it appears he was among the more important and accomplished of thePilgrims. Richard was one of the signers of the Mayflower Compact, the first establishment of civil government in America. He was given the prefix "Mr.", or Master, by Governor WilliamBradford, which indicates one of high birth or achievement.
      He may have had a period of illness before his death in 1628. Even so, he appears as a leader of one of twelve groups formed to own cattle in 1627. In that same year, he is listed asone of the 58 sole proprietors of land in Plymouth Colony.
      His wife, Elizabeth, outlived him by 45 years. She never remarried, but was allowed to succeed to her husband's rights as "Purchaser". She was honored with the title "Mrs.", as mostwomen were called "Goodwife". (Mayflower Families, 1981: Mass. Society of Mayflower Descendants)
      There are numerous sources of information about Richard and the three generations following. Only some of them are cited here; there may be several other corraborating sources.
