Birth and Parentage

Margaret Warren was the daughter of John Warren. [1][2]

Margaret Warren was born circa 1425 at of Ightfield, Shropshire, England. If the marriage, as estimated, took place in 1445, this would make Margaret a suitable age 20 at the time.

1445 Marriage

Margaret Warren married William Mainwaring. [2]

He was the son of Randle Mainwaring and Margery Venables.[1][3][4][5]

Based on the birth of grandson John in 1475, place the birth of Thomas Mainwaring at 1450. Since he was the second son, place the first at 1448, a daughter at 1446, and the marriage to William at 1445.

Margaret Warren has been shown as the wife of the following husbands as well, however, these are not mentioned in Richardson and there is no other evidence of their marriage:

  1. John Dodd, born 1395
  2. Griffith Hill, born 1372


Margaret and William were the parents of:

  1. Thomas Mainwaring, Esq, of Ightfield, Shropshire, 2nd son of William and Margaret. Thomas married Jane Sutton and had two sons, John (b. 1475), Knt, and George, and two daughters, Cecily and Alice (wife of Philip Hill). Thomas Mainwaring died in 1508. [2]
