Samuel Wardwell was hanged for witchcraft in Salem on September 22, 1692. He is among those remembered at memorials in Salem and Danvers, Massachusetts.

His descendants are a rich cross-section of Americans, including a Governor of California, the builder of the first six-masted schooner and a member of the jury that indicted Jefferson Davis after the Civil War. Mariners, farmers and those who headed west in the California Gold Rush are richly represented. The following genealogy is a work in progress and corrections and additions are welcome.

Much credit is due to Majorie Wardwell Otten for her extensive work on the Wardwell descendants. Thanks also to Mark Honey, whose help has been invaluable in researching the many Wardwells of Hancock County, Maine. Abigail Wardwell Bond has provided great help with the Wardwells of Vermont. Many others have contributed as well and are credited in the sources of the data.
