The Warriner Family of New England Origin: Being a History and Genealogy of William Warriner, Pioneer Settler of Springfield, Mass., and His Descendants, Embracing Nine Generations from 1638 to 1898, with an Appendix Containing Genealogical Notes of Other Persons and Families in America Bearing the Same Name. (Albany, N. Y.: Joel Munsell's Sons, 1899)

    "The original ancestor of the New England Warriners joined the settlers of Springfield, Mass., in 1638. His birthplace and ancestry are unknown."

    There appears to be no evidence, other than the name, to connect William Warriner the emigrant to New England, with William Warriner of Yorkshire or William Warriner of Kent.

    "William Warriner, the New England ancestor, was made a freeman, or voter, in 1638."

    Probably not. The William Warriner who was admitted was grouped with number of Ipswich men and it is unlikely that any from Springfield were admitted this early. See NEHGS 3:96 (1849).
