Humphrey Warren Sr. referred to himself as "merchant of London" until Oct 12, 1662, when he applied for 1000 acres of land and immigrated to Maryland. In 1664, Humphrey Warren "of Wicomico River" was named in three wills in St. Mary's and Charles Counties, MD. He or his son settled in Charles County sometime prior to December 23, 1672, when he was made Commissioner of Charles Co. In June of 1676, the province awarded him 525 pounds for his part in investigating an Indian uprising. In 1683, with the title of Captain, he was one of the commission established to select and purchase town lands and sites for surveying and laying out port towns. The death of Humphrey Warren Sr. a delegate to the MD Assembly, was reported in the Legislature's minutes.

The Warren home at Wicomico, the oldest settlement in Charles County MD, was called "Hatton's Point." It was located on the west side of the Wicomico River across from "Notley Hall," home of Thomas Notley, seventh Maryland Governor and immigrant with Samuel Maddox of Wales. Prior to Humphrey Warren's death, he conveyed "Frailty" to Josias Fendall in trust for his wife Elinor Warren and his youngest son, Thomas Warren. 

His estate was administered and committed to Thomas Howell who married his widow.
