John WARHAM - bap. Oct. 9, 1595, St. Bartholomew's Church, Crewkerne, Somerset, England; d. Apr. 1, 1670, Windsor, CT. Son of Richard WARHAM and Agnes COOK alias HOWPER. Graduated at St. Mary Hall, Oxford (BA Nov. 14, 1614; MA May 18, 1618), and ordained at Silverton, Devon on May 23, 1619. Rev. WARHAM was minister at Crewkerne, Somerset, until he was removed about 1627 for his Puritan views. Pastor at St. Sidwell's, Exeter, Devon, England 1630; arrived at Dorchester, MA May 30, 1630 in the 'Mary & John'; founder of Windsor, CT 1637. Rev. John WARHAM and Rev. John MAVERICK were both ministers at Dorchester until the latter's death. Rev. Ephraim HUIT arrived at Windsor in 1639 to assist Rev. WARHAM. In his will of 1623, John's father implies that John was then single with the phrase "in case he should marry." The purported will of Rev. John WARHAM was rejected by the court Nov. 23, 1670, and administration of his estate was granted to his threee sons-in-law. The estate had been inventoried on Apr. 30, 1670 at £1239.10.00. John was married first Jun. 8, 1625 at Stoke Abbott, Dorset to Susanna GOLLOPPE, who could have been the daughter of Gybbes GALLOP who married John's aunt Magdalen as her second husband. Susanna, who died in 1634 at Dorchester, MA, was the mother of his first five children. Married second in 1637, probably at Windsor, CT; and third Oct. 9, 1662 Abigail SEARLE (d. May 18, 1684, Windsor, CT), widow of John BRANKER.[6]

Founders of Windsor, CT
Windsor was the first permanent English settlement in Connecticut. Local indians granted Plymouth settlers land at the confluence of the Farmington River and the west side of the Connecticut River, and Plymouth settlers (including Jonathan Brewster, son of William) built a trading post in 1633. But the bulk of the settlement came in 1635, when 60 or more people led by Reverend Warham arrived, having trekked overland from Dorchester, Massachusetts. Most had arrived in the New World five years earlier on the ship "Mary and John" from Plymouth, England. The settlement was first called Dorchester, and was renamed Windsor in 1637.

    Warham, John, Dorchester, came in the Mary and John from Plymouth 1630, having been a min. at Exeter in Co. Devon, where capt. Roger Clap, wh. in his humble, but invalu. tract, gives the best acco. of him, had in his youth, heard his teaching; yet we kn. not, at wh. of the univ. he was bred, if at either, tho. so much may be presum. as he was episcop. ord. At Plymouth, bef. embarc. he with an elder br. in the gospel, Rev. John Maverick, and many of their fellow passeng. had formed a strictly congregatio. ch. He was sw. a freem. 18 May 1631, and the w. wh. he brot. d. 1634, without having ch. as is believ. Ano. w. Abigail, m. a.

From the whole page of Magn. III. 121, it is found that he was afflict. with melancholy in his latter days, and earlier had deliv. sermons from notes; but betw. these two distinguish. traits of his life, no connex. is pretended by the profound author.
