The original ancestor of the New England Warriners joined the settlers of Springfield, Hampden, MA, in 1638. His birthplace and ancestry are unknown. That England was the land of his nativity is probable beyond all doubt. He is thought to have come from Lincolnshire.
WILLIAM WARRINER was an early settler of Springfield, where he served as constable, surveyor, selectman, and tithingman. He was made a freeman (or voter) in 1638. He was fined in 1640 for selling his canoe to some party outside the "plantation." He owned a considerable part of what is now the heart of Springfield.
He married JOANNA SEARLE in Springfield, Jul. 31, 1639. She died there Feb. 7, 1659/60. WILLIAM married, second, Elizabeth Gibbons on Oct. 2, 1661.
WILLIAM died intestate and the estate was valued at 160 pounds and included 56 pounds worth of clothing
and books. His widow Elizabeth and his children agreed that she would have one third of his estate
during her lifetime plus 15 pounds and she would live in the home.
