Facts and Events
From "Bullard and Allied Families":
He had a homestead and seven other lots, aggregating 188 acres. John
Warren, though a member of the Puritan church, was in sympathy with the
Quakers, and was the subject of much criticism and abuse by certain church
officials. He retained his membership in the church, however, and died,
at peace with its doctrines, December 13, 1667, aged 82 years. His wife
Margaret (surname unknown), died November 6, 1662. His will dated November
30, 1667, was proved December 17 of that year..."

JOHN, Watertown, came probably in 1630, in the fleet with Sir Richard
Saltonstall, then aged about 45, and having wife and children (four
certainly are named in his will, and of them only Elizabeth could be
born here). There may have been others, but no record of birth or
death is found. He was admitted freeman 18 May 1631, chosen selectman
1636-40. Late in life he fell under the censure of the laws, unwisely
levelled at dissenting from the religious course of the major part of
the inhabitants and Bond informs us of proceedings against him in 1651,
1654, and 1661; but he died in peace, 13 December 1667, aged 82. His
wife Margaret died 6 November 1662. She was probably the mother of all
his children John, born 1622; Mary; and Daniel, born 1628; beside
Elizabeth who married about 1654, James Knapp. Mary married 30 Oct.
1642, John Bigelow.
