"The sum of the value of his books appraised by Mr. Rusell and Mr. Chancy came to £82 4s." [ Hartford PD Case #5645]. OFFICES: Dorchester "selectman," January 1632[/3], 3 April 1633, 3 November 1633, 2 December 1633, 6 January 1633[/4], 20 May 1634, 24 May 1634 [ DTR 1-6]. (During this early period, before the establishment of the office of selectman, John Warham and John Maverick, the ministers of Dorchester church, and William Gaylord and William Rockwell, the deacons, were entrusted with all town business.) ESTATE: On 27 June 1636 he had two acres of marsh by Goodman Greenway's [ DTR 16]. He pledged to contribute to a schoolmaster based on profits from the Island [ DTR 106]. On [illegible] January 1641[/2] John Warham, Henry Woolcott, Benjamin Nuberry, John Nuberry, Mary Nuberry, Rebeccah Nuberry and Hannah Nuberry of Windsor sold to Joseph Nuberry of Windsor ten acres and a half of meadow near Podunk [ WiLR 1:5-6]. On 23 November 1670 the papers purporting to be the last will of Rev. John Warham were rejected and administration of the estate was granted to the husbands of his three daughters, Thomas Allyn, Return Strong and Mr. Stodder of Northampton. These three men were to order the estate, preserve it from waste, and see that it supported the widow during her lifetime. The court further ruled that "what estate Mrs. Warham had before marriage with Mr. Warham shall remain at her own dispose" [ Manwaring 1:247 The inventory of the estate of Rev. John Warham was taken 30 April 1670 and totalled £1239 10s., including £687 in real estate: "his dwelling house, outhousing, and land about it of meadow and swamps and upland estimated thirty-three acres and ½," £250; "in the great meadow eighteen acres," £100; "of woodland westerly of the mill fifty-seven acres," £25; "west of that thirty acres," £3; "fifteen acres near to that," £3; "the house bought of late of Peter Brown near the mill," £20; "the mill and land about it three acres," £220; land that was Mr. Branker's: "in the great meadow," £25; "in the little meadow two acres [quarter?]," £11; and "east side the great river, 20 rods in breadth, in length 3 miles," 30 [ Hartford PD Case #5645; Manwaring 1:247]. The inventory was incomplete and the administration was not perfected even as late as 10 March 1700[/1], when Samuel Allyn entered a bond of administration upon the estate [ Hartford PD Case #5645; Manwaring 1:247]. On 5 March 1684/5 administration on the estate of Mrs. Abigail Warham was granted to Capt. Newbery and Return Strong [ Manwaring 1:374]. On 4 September 1684 the nuncupative will of Mrs. Abigail Warham was heard from four witnesses that We the underwritten, being present with Mrs. Warham, who spent her last days in our family, she discoursing with us respecting her estate, declared that she had formerly given her cousin Miles Marwine such a multitude that if she had thousands she would not give him a penny. She did not know whether she had anything to give away. Disowned that she had any will, and said further that her cousin Miles Marwin desired that she would make over her estate to him. She did not know but that she might live to need and expend it all ... Mary the wife of Captain Newbery, and Abigail the daughter, both affirm that Mrs. Warham said to them ... that if there was anything left when the court had the consideration thereof, she had thought little Miles Marwin should have somewhat, and the other the lived with her so long, & as for her moveables that were brought into our house, Return Strong, Mary Newbery & Abigail do testify she freely gave them to us & said they should not be taken from us [ Manwaring 1:374 The inventory of the estate of Mrs. Abigail Warham of Windsor totalled £126 14s. 6d. [ Hartford PD Case #5644; Manwaring 1:374]. The court ordered that one third of the estate go to Miles Marwin Jr., two thirds of one third to Elizabeth [Marwin], and to John, Thomas, Samuel & Abigail Marwin, the remainder [ Manwaring 1:374]. BIRTH: Baptized Crewkerne, Somersetshire, 9 October 1595, son of Richard and Agnes (Cook alias Howper) Warham [ M&JCH 12:6] (aged about seventy-six in 1668 [ WMJ 875]). DEATH: Windsor 1 April 1670 [ Manwaring 1:247; CTVR 22; Grant 69, 83]. MARRIAGE: (1) Stoke Abbot, Dorsetshire, 8 June 1625 Susanna Gollop [ TAG 65:122]. She died late in 1634 (on 12 December 1634 John Winthrop wrote to John Winthrop Jr. that "Mrs. Warham is dead" [ WP 3:177]). (2) By about 1637 Jane (_____) Newberry, widow of Thomas Newberry (on 1 May 1639 "John Warham, pastor of the church [at Windsor], and Jane his wife, executrix of the last will and testament of Thomas Newbery gent. deceased," leased to Richard Wright of Mount Wollaston, husbandman, the farm "which the said Thomas Newbery purchased of William Pyncheon" [ Lechford 124-26]). She died at Norwalk on 23 April 1655 [ Grant 68]. (3) Windsor 9 October 1662 Abigail (Searle) Brancker [ CTVR 9; Grant 68], widow of JOHN BRANKER of Windsor [ JIC 59-69]. She died at Windsor on 18 May 1684 [ CTVR 56]. CHILDREN: With first wife i John, bp. Crewkerne, Somersetshire, 7 March 1626/7; bur. there 17 March 1626/7 [ M&JCH 17:170]. ii Child, bur.

Solomon Stoddard, son of Anthony Stoddard [ Pynchon VR 142]. ASSOCIATIONS: In 1952 Donald Lines Jacobus prepared a concise account of John Warham and his immediate family [ Hale, House 775-77]. In 1989 Judy Osborn published the results of extensive research in English records, leading to a presentation of four generations of ancestry for Rev. John Warham [ M&JCH 12:1-26, 17:164-71]. In 1990 Myrtle S. Hyde analyzed these findings and concluded that "more avenues need to be pursued, but the basic family tree looks good" [ TAG 65:121-22]. COMMENTS: Matthew Grant says of Warham's ministry: Before this time it had been the practice to call such persons in public to stand forth and answer to questions of catechism propounded to them & to own the church covenant. And the time which Mr. Warham first began this practice was January 31 1657 and went on in the practice of it until March 19 1664, which day he declared to the church that he had met with such arguments against the practice concerning the baptizing of members' children that he could not get through at present & could not go on in practice as he had done without scruple of conscience, therefore must forebear until he had weighed arguments and advised with those that were able to give, not that he intended to cast off the practice holy, but only lay it for a time till he could be better able to answer his present scruples, for if he should act, and not of faith rom 14 would be sin to him [ Grant 13]. He further says that Mr. John Warham had four children born in Windsor [ Grant 93]. Autobiography of W S Tyler, by William Seymour Tyler, D.D.,LL.D., Massachusetts, 1912 Page 304 "REV. JOHN WARHAM, first minister of Windsor, Conn. He came in the Mary and John from Plymouth 1630, says Savage, having been a minister at Exeter, Devonshire, and was sworn a freeman at Dorchester, May 18, 1631. His first wife died late in 1624 (Winthrop's Journal), and he married JANE (widow of Mr. Thomas) Newberry, who died April 23, 1645, and he married a third time. Mr. WARHAM preached six years at Dorchester, and moved with the body of his church in 1635 to Windsor, where he preached thirty-four years more until his death, April 1, 1670. He left three wills and a large estate, which was finally settled under the intestate law. The account of his life in Mather's Magnalia III, Chap. 18, says he was the first New England preacher to use notes, "who though he were sometimes faulted for it, by some judicious men, who had never heard him, yet when they once came to hear him they could not but admire the notable energy of his ministry." "The whole Colony of Connecticut considered him as a principal pillar and father of the colony." A facsimile of a part of his writings is printed in Stiles' Ancient Windsor I, 205, and in the footnote among his noteworthy descendants mentioned is Mrs. Professor W. S. Tyler. Esther or Hester was his fourth daughter by his second wife, Jane, and was baptised December 8, 1644, and died February 10, 1736, in Northampton. (Stiles' Windsor II, 775.)"
