About John Warner, of Broad Oak

In the will of John Warner (father of Andrew Warner) made a few months after purchasing lad at Hatfield Broad Oak, he calls himself a "Yeoman," that is, one who owns and works his own lad as distinguised from the tenant farmer on the one hand and the wealthy landlord on the other. This land usually consisted of several detached pieces; one for a homestead, another for pasture and others for the cultivation of crops. He evidently belonged to the class of small freeholders, or what is now termed the middle-class. (Warner, p 5)

--------------------

John Warner was born in Hatfield, Broad Oak, county Essex, England, in 1568, and died in Hatfield after July 16, 1614. The dates of his birth and marriage are very suspect. Mary Purchas was born in England and died in Essex County, England, about 1627. Her will was proved on May 12, 1627. They were married in Dunmow Lt., near Great Waltham, county Essex, England, on Sunday, September 7, 1578. She took the name Mary Warner. He is the son of John and Margaret (_____) Warner. She is the daughter of John and Margaret (_____) Purchas. They had six children:

i. Thomas Warner: the eldest son; married Joane; at least two children.

ii. Rose Warner [#5241]: She was born in England.

iii. Andrew Warner [#516]: He was born in Essex, England, in 1600, and died in Hadley, Hampshire County, Massachusetts, on December 18, 1684.

iv. Elizabeth Warner: SHe married and bore at least two children.

v. Edward Warner

vi. John Warner: She married, her children included Mary.

In 1609, John and his family had evidently settled in Hatfield Broad Oak, about ten miles from Great Waltham, as the "Lay Subsidies" or personal taxes for Essex showed that John Warner of Hatfield Broad Oak in that year paid a tax on £3 of household goods, but there is no record of a tax on land. On March 10, 1614, the record of deeds shows that he bought 35 acres of freehold land consisting of garden, meadow, and pasture, for which he paid £41.

Hatfield Broad Oak is located about 25 miles north of London. It was originally known as Hatfield Regis, or Kings' Hatfield, to distinguish it from several other Hatfields in the kingdom, and because the manor was owned by the Kings of England. It is the supposed burial place of Harold, the last of the Saxon Kings.

In the will of John Warner made on July 16, 1614, a few months after the purchase of the land, he calls himself a yeoman, that is, one who owns and works his own land. Therefore, he was of the "middle class"—not a tenant farmer and not a landlord. This sort of land usually consisted of several detached pieces; one for a homestead, another for pasture, and others for the cultivation of crops.

The children mentioned above are mentioned in the will of John Warner, along with four grandchildren. The will of Mary, his wife, made May 12, 1627, 13 years later, lists 19 grandchildren. These two wills are given in The Descendants of Andrew Warner. This book is the source of most of the material given here.
