5 JOHN2 WARNER, son of Andrew1 Warner, died in Middletown, Conn., June 24, 1700. The date and place of his birth are unknown but he was probably born in England before the removal of the family to America. According to the records of Connecticut, October 8, 1663, he was to be made a freeman on the following day. There is no record of his early life in America but he settled early in Middletown, Conn. His name is one of those on a granite and bronze memorial unveiled in 1905 to Middletown's "Founders, Fathers and Patriots," as one of the founders of the period from 1650 to 1680. With his wife and his brothers, Robert and Andrew, and their wives, he signed the covenant of the Middletown Church, Nov. 4, 1668, the date of the beginning of the church records. The list of proprietors of Middletown, March 22, 1670, gives John Warner, with a valuation of 96, slightly larger than that of his two brothers of the same town. His lot was on the west bank of the Connecticut River, next south of Thomas Ranney's and the middle one of five lots between the roads. He seems to have spent the remainder of his life as a farmer there.

His will, made March 19, 1700, mentions the following:

  • eldest son John;
  • John North, guardian to his two children by Mary Warner, Anna and Mary North.

Distribution of the property was made to

  • John Warner, the eldest son,
  • Jonathan Warner,
  • Hannah Warner,
  • Elizabeth Warner,
  • John North's children by his first wife, and to
  • Ebenezer Ranney in right of his wife.

Married ANNA .

Her name is given as Anna Norton in Nash's Fifty Puritan Settlers, p. 62, but this may be an error, for John Warner, the early settler of Farmington, married Anna Norton. The Middletown Church records have the following entry: "May 23, 1669, Goodman John Warner & his yoke fellow Anna Warner & the wife of David Sage in full communion. . . . May 30, 1669 (baptized) child11 of Brother Warner; viz.: Hannah, John, Jonathan, Mary, Elizabeth, our sister Sage herself likewise and her 3 children namely, David, John, Elizabeth in 1 seale. john Warner Senr and Anna Warner Senr were among the signers of the covenant at the Middletown Church, "the 4th of the 9th mo 1668."

Children, order not known but inferred from record of their baptism in Middletown in 1669

  1. Hannah Warner, mentioned in the distribution of her father's property, 1700, probably not married.
  2. John Warner, b. about 1657; m. Mrs. Silence Hand Wilcox.
  3. Mary Warner, died March 1, 1694-5. Married; as his first wife, John North, who died April 20, 1745, son of Samuel and Hannah (Norton) North of Farmington and grandson of John and Hannah (Bird) Norton who came to Boston in the Susan and Ellen in 1635. He was made guardian for his two children Anna and Mary North, who were minors at the time of their grandfather's death. Anna North, b. about 1694; m. June 28, 1716, Thomas Wilcox, b. July 5, 1687, d. Jan. 20, 1726, son of Israel and Sarah (Savage) Wilcox, and had children, Hannah, Thomas, who m. Freelove Bradley, Jonathan and Hannah. Further records of this family will be found in Nash's Fifty Puritan Ancestors, p. 63.
  4. Elizabeth Warner, received part of her father's property in 1700. It is not clear if the following record refers to this Elizabeth or to her cousin, Elizabeth, daughter of Robert Warner. In October, 1703, the court of Middletown ordered that land of Elizabeth Warner be sold, "as much as may be needfull for the defraying of the necessary charges that have been or shall be expended for the keeping and maintenance of the said Elizabeth, she being a distracted person and now in close custodie to prevent her doing mischieff." One Elizabeth Warner married Nov. 22, 1709, Samuel Pease (Hadley Town Records), but she may be a descendant of William of Ipswich.
  5. Jonathan Warner, b. 1660; d. Nov. 4, 1733, in East Middletown (Portland) to which place he had removed about 1710; buried in old Quarry burying ground, Portland. He was a farmer and died leaving a substantial property to his wife by a will of May 22, 1733. After her death, it was distributed, Jan. 3, 1758, to Ebenezer Ranney, Richard Coleman and Jabez Warner. Jonathan Warner married in Middletown, Aug. 4, 1698, Elizabeth Ranney, b. in Middletown Upper Houses, Apr. 12, 1668; d. Feb. (or Sept.) 11, 1757; buried in old Quarry burying ground, Portland.

She was received into full communion of the Middletown Church, July 28, 1695, was an original member of the North Society, Jan. 5, 1714-5, and an original member of the Third Church at East Middletown, which was organized in 1721.
