    Notes 
    • "The will of Augustine Walker of 'much' Amwell was dated 19 April 1613; there is no date of probate on the will or in the act book. It states, 'I give & bequeath unto my daughter Elizabeth Warren wife of Richard Warren Sixteene pounds of lawefull money of England, and unto her three Children Marey, Ann an Sarey Warren Fower pounds . . ' These three children have the same names and are listed in the same order as the first three children known for the immigrant Richard Warren. Since their parents were married in 1610 and they were named in their maternal grandfather's will of 1613, the dates of birth of these daughters can be stated reasonably accurately, and match very closely what is known of the dates of birth of the daughters of Richard Warren, the Mayflower passenger. (Since Richard Warren and his wife Elizabeth (Walker) had three children in three years, Elizabeth may have used wet nurses - though there are other possibilities.) It is unfortunate that the first three daughters each had a common name, unlike the rarer name Abigail, which was given to a later daughter of the immigrant." [1065]

      "Richard Warren of the Mayflower was described as 'of London.' Unfortunately, Augustine Walker's will does not give Richard Warren's residence. Great Amwell, however, had clear connections with London. The parish was situated on two major routes leading from the capital city: The River Lea and the Old North Road. There re many references in the Great Amwell parish registers to people from London, including some connected with Augustine Walker himself. In 1603 Susan Addams, 'a maiden borne in Amwell dwellinge at London died heere at Augustine Wallkar's' and 'Marye surnamed Fanchurch, a child of the hopsitall in London, was buried from Augustine Wallkar's of Amwell.' Another connection is the appointment in Augustine's will of Simon Admas, citizen of London, as an overseer. Augustine Walker was buried at Great Amwell on 18 August 1614 as 'Austen Wallkar of Amwell street an owld man.' His widow Mary was buried at Great Amwell on 26 December of the same year, but she was evidently not the mother of Elizabeth (Walker) Warren. Augustine Walker and Mary Stringer were married at Great Amwell on 27 June 1597. Mary's will, dated 23 December 1614 and proved on 10 January 1614/5, does not name Augustine's children, but does refer to the 'legacies of my husband Augustine Wallkar lately deceased.' And Elizabeth, daughter of Augustine Walker, was baptized at Baldock, Hertfordshire, approximately fifteen miles from Gret Amwell, in September 1583. The children of Augustine Walker of Great Amwell mentioned in his will are: Elizabeth, wife of Richard Warren; Ann, wife of Thomas Holland; and Mary Johnson. No record of the baptisms of Ann or Mary was found in the Baldock parish registers. A Dorothy daughter of Augustine Walker, baptized there in 1573, could be the Dorothy Walker who married Edward Grave at Great Amwell in 1595. If the Elizabeth Walker baptized at Baldock was baptized soon after birth, then she would have been ninety years old in October 1673, which would fit with the age of 'aboue 90 yeares' given for the immigrant Richard Warren's widow. It is clear from the above that there are good reasons to identify the immigrants Richard Warren and his wife Elizabeth with Richard and Elizabeth (Walker) Warren. As far as is known, there is nothing inconsistent with the identification. it is hoped that those interested in the family of the Mayflower passenger will find further evidence about the the origin and ancestry of Richard Warren and his wife."
