An American Family History

William Warner

The New Haven Colony was an English colony in what is now the state of Connecticut. The colony was from 1637 to 1664.

Early European settlers in the American colonies were mostly farmers and craftsmen. They had to work hard to provide daily neccesities for themselves.

Connecticut's first European settlers were Dutch.

William Warner was born about 1644 in Ipswich, Essex County, Massachusetts. His parents were Daniel Warner and Elizabeth Dane.

According to A Genealogical Record of the Descendants of Quartermaster George Colton by George Woolworth Colton William Warner married Hannah Robbins in 1667. She was the daughter of John Robbins and Mary Welles.

Hannah and William's children were born in Wethersfield, Hartford County, Connecticut. They included:

William Warner (1671/72),
John Warner (1675/76),
Hannah Warner (1678),
Daniel Warner (1679/80),
Donald Warner (1679/80),
Abigail Warner (1683) and
Comfort Warner (1686).

William died in Wethersfield on February 28, 1713/14. Hannah died on March 3 of the same year.
