Richard Warren was from Hertford, England. He left his wife and five daughters behind when he came alone on the Mayflower. His wife Elizabeth Walker, and their five daughters, Mary, Ann, Sarah, Elizabeth, and Abigail, came on the ship Anne in 1623. Elizabeth and Richard had two sons, Nathaniel and Joseph who were born at Plymouth. All of Richards’s children married and each had large families. Richard Warren had the largest number of descendants, which include Ulysses Grant, Franklin Roosevelt, and Alan Shepard (who walked on the moon).
The Mayflower left England in September 1620 with 102 men, women and children bound for Virginia. After 65 days they arrived far north of their preferred destination. They created a government on arrival forming the Mayflower Compact, which stated the colonists would create “laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions, and offices…,” follow their Christian faith, work together for the common good, and be loyal subjects to King James.
This Richard Warren history mug is part of our Mayflower history series which includes many of the notable figures who played major roles during this conflict.
The biographical History Mugs were created to teach and inspire individuals to learn about our diverse and interesting history. The biographies were researched and written by history enthusiast, Robert Compton. He colorized most of the historic photos and images used on the mugs, which were originally black and white or sepia tone. The images and biographies are imprinted on mugs at his studio in rural Vermont.
