Nathaniel Warren was born in 1624 in Plymouth Colony.  His father, Richard, came alone on the Mayflower to America, then sent later for his family:
We know that the Mayflower passenger’s first three children were named Mary, Ann, and Sarah (in that birth order).Very little is known about Richard Warren’s life in America.  He came alone on the Mayflower in 1620, leaving behind his wife and five daughters.  They came to him on the ship Anne in 1623, and Richard and Elizabeth subsequently had sons Nathaniel and Joseph at Plymouth.

When he was 41 years old he was given the responsibility of negotiating with my 11th great uncle Metacom to purchase land from the Wampanoag tribe.
Plymouth Colony Land Purchase:

  • Oct. 1665, John Cooke and his Brother-In-Law Nathaniel Warren, were appointed by Plymouth Colony to “treat with Philip the Sagamore about the sale of such lands as are to be sold by him, and to purchase them in the behalf of the country.” Philip the Sagamore, sometimes called Metacom, was the son or grandson of Massasoit, and leader of the Wampanoag Indians. He would later be dubbed “King Philip” during the Wampanoag’s war he led against the English in 1676.

    His prepared his will in 1661 to resolve disputes over his father’s estate.
