About John Warren, of Corlie

John, born about 1525, was of "Corlie" in Nayland, Suffolk, England. He was buried at Nayland on April 23, 1576. The name of his first wife is unknown, but he married secondly at Nayland on September 5, 1563, Agnes (or Anne) Howlet. She was buried on November 25, 1567. John married thirdly at Great Horkesely, January 30, 1568/9, Margaret Firmety. Margaret was buried April 19, 1576.

While it was not uncommon for people to name their children after their deceased siblings, John Warren's two sons, both named John, were alive at the same time. To distinguish between them, the eldest John was called "the elder" while the second John, the middle child, was called John "the middle." Perhaps John the Elder was a sickly child and wasn't expected to live at the time of John the Middle's birth five years later. John Warren and his wife may have wanted to ensure that at least one of their sons survived with the name.
