From the Gone Home genealogy of the Warren Family., Edward Warren was born in Charles Co, MD. In 1774 he was old enough to be an administrator for a Susan Gwynn. He signed an Oath of Allegiance on May 28, 1779 and he was appointed as Ensign of Captain Jonathon Yeates' company of Maryland militia. His sister Mary's second husband died in 1776 and Edward was one of the sureties for Mary as executrix. She moved to Pittsylvania Co, VA to be near her dead husband's relatives. By 1781 Edward is also in Pittsylvania Co witnessing a will of Mary's daughter, Sarah Briscoe, deceased. In the 1782 census Edward is listed as head of household of six white souls. It is assumed his first wife, unknown, had died by that time and he had moved to Pittsylvania Co, VA to be near his sister. By 1785 Edward heads a household of seven. He had married Rebecca Dabney a few months before.

By 1791 Edward Warren Sr had moved to Chatham Co, NC where he appears on jury summons lists alongside John Dabney. Edward stayed in Chatham Co through the 1810 census, but does not appear in the 1820 census of NC or TN. Although no will has been found, there are several deed records in Bedford Co., TN referring to his last will and testament. There is a deed record in Shelbyville, TN in 1842 in which Mary Warren Carroll mentions the estate of Edward Warren Jr. "now deceased" in Mississippi.

James Womble and Joanna Womble on May 31, 1838 in Bedford Co., TN are discharging part of their debt by selling their 1/10th interest in 8 negro slaves to John F. Niel. They acquired the 1/10th interest as an inheritance from her father Edward Warren Sr. However, according to the will, the slaves could not be sold until the death of the widow of Edward Warren Sr., Becky Warren. The 1/10th interest comes from the fact that there were ten children in the will.  We have listed only 8 children.


In 1824 his daughter Mary "Polly" Carroll brought suit against his estate.  See her page for documents.
