About Robert Warren

Robert Warren and his relations have been comprehensively studied by both Threlfall and Smith. According to Smith,55 "This Robert Warren was probably the able-bodied man of Nayland taxed for a moveable estate valued at �4 in 1522 (Military Survey of 1522 for Babergh Hundred, 32). In 1524 a Robert Warren of Wiston was taxed for wages of �1 and in Nayland for �6 in property (1524 Subsidy Return, 21, 8).

"The will of Robert Warren of Wiston was abstracted by Elizabeth French in the Register 64[1910]:348" and is reproduced by both Smith and Threlfall. Threlfall provides additional details about some of Robert's children not traced by Smith. Smith is undertain whether Margaret _____ is the mother of Robert Warren's children.

Robert was born perhaps about 1485 and married Margaret Legh. He lived in Wissington, Suffolk, England when he wrote his will, abstracted as follows:

My milch beasts and oxen to be sold and the money used to pay debts, and the residue to my wife. To my son James a white bullock.

Robert Warren married Margaret Legh, a Baguley descendant. This family would unite again with the marriage of John Bigelow (Baguley) and Mary Warren in Watertown, Mass. and found the Bigelow family in the New World. This marriage proves the close relationship between these two families, long before their arrival in the New World as part of the Winthrop Fleet.
