Notes for JOHN WARNER: Died sometime between 12 May1627 and 17 Jul 1627
Died after 16 Jul 1614 in Hatfield, Broad Oak, Essex, England
Moved to Hatfield, Broad Oak, Essex Co, England in 1609 and died there in 1614.
John Warner, the father of Andrew, was a legatee under and a witness to the will of his brother Thomas, made in 1613. In 1609 he had evidently settled in Hatfield Broad Oak, about ten miles from Great Waltham, as the "Lay Subsidies" or personal taxes for Essex showed that John Warner of Hatfield Broad Oak in that year paid a tax on L3 of household goods, but there is no record of a tax on land. Five years later, on March 10th, the "Feet of Fines," corresponding to our record of deeds, shows that he bought thirty-five acres of freehold land consisting of garden, meadow and pasture, for which he paid foruty-one pounds sterling.
In the will of John Warner made a few months after purchasing this land at Hatfield Broad Oak, he calls himself a "Yeoman," that is, one who owns and works his own land as distinguised from the tenant farmer on the one hand and the wealthy landloard on the ohter. THis land usually consisted of several detached pieces; one for a homestead, another for pasture and others for the cultivation of crops. He evidently belonged to the class of small freeholders, or what is now termed the middle-class.
The will of John Warner of Hatfield Broad Oak, dated July 15th, 1614, mentions six children: Thomas, John, Andrew, Edward, Elizabeth and Rose; also four grand-children, Thomas Warner and Thomas, John and Elizabeth Stanford, who were the children of his daughter Rose. The will of Mary Warner, made thirteen years later, mentions nineteen grand-children. Among these were "The two children of Andrew my sonne." Diligent search as been made to find a record of the birth or baptism of the children of Andrew Warner, who were born in England, but without success.
