Warren Township is a township in Bradford County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 1,025 at the 2000 census. White history of the township dates to the 1790s when the first settlers bought tracts of land and moved into a forested wilderness from their New England homes. The Providence, R.I., company Brown & Ives was a major player in recruiting settlers - especially to the southern half of the town. Parley Coburn represented the company's interests for nearly 40 years until his death in 1860. He was proud of the fact that at his death he had finally sold the last of the lots. It had been a difficult task because money was scarce, the original lot prices were high, and developing a living from the earth was difficult. In some instances, Brown & Ives held mortgages into the 3rd generation of a family on the land. [Hedges, The Browns of Providence Plantations, 1968]
