Elizabeth Warren came to join her father Richard Warren in America with her mother and four sisters on the ship Anne in 1623. See Mayflower Families Through Five Generations, Volume 18, Part 1, Third Edition, published by General Society of Mayflower Descendants 2004, pages 1-2 and 6-7.

Wikipedia: Although most sources agree that his wife's name was Elizabeth, there is some dispute as to what her maiden surname was. One reference indicates her maiden name was Elizabeth Walker, and that she was baptised 1583 in Baldock, Hertfordshire, England, died October 2, 1673. She and his first five children, all daughters, came to America in the ship Anne in 1623. Once in America, they then had two sons before Richard's untimely death in 1628.

Elizabeth came to America on the "Anne" in 1623

"Elizabeth was the fourth daughter born to Richard and Elizabeth WARREN. Richard WARREN was a merchant in London before sailing on the MAYFLOWER. Elizabeth WARREN came in the "ANNE" in 1623 with her mother Elizabeth and four sisters. While visiting at Plymouth Colony, one of the pilgrim ladies told me that Elizabeth WARREN was a woman after a man’s own heart. When Richard came on the MAYFLOWER, she stayed behind and minded the store and the girls and when she sold the store, Richard said she got a good price for the shop, as well as he could have gotten."

-John A. Church, Descendants of Richard Church of Plymouth, Mass. Bristol Rhode Island Historical Society.
