"While the history of the Warren family in Europe is not complete in every detail, there are certain facts of interest which seem to be fairly authentic. There is no doubt that the name dates back to the early his tory of France and England and has been born by some of their most illustrious sons. Good authority also exists for believing that members of this family h ave formed alliances through marriage with ruling houses of both of these coun tries. This family name comes doubtless from the Latin word Guarenna or Varen na, of which the primary sense is to stop, hold or repel, to guard or keep off . This word in Norman French became Guarenne or Varenne and is sometimes writ ten Guaren or Guarin in old documents. It is likewise found in English as Warren, Warrene, Waren, Warrin, Warin, or Waring. The name Varneene was given bot h to a river in the County of Calais, Normandy and to the country bordering on this stream. This region, while not large in area, apparently was of suffic ient political importance in the 11th century to bring to its processor the ti tle of Earl or Count.
The first to bear this title was William de St. Martins, so called from his birthplace, who received the fief of Varenne from Duke Wi lliam II of Normandy. He lived in the 11th century and was without doubt a des cendant from the stock of the Danish invaders. There is considerable data ext ant, though unfortunately much of it is legendary, which would connect him dir ectly with the warrior chieftain of the Northmen, Rolf or Rollo, who force fro m King Charles III of France the grant of the northern section of that country , then called Neustria. The new owners changed the name to Normandy and their leader became the first Duke of Normandy. It is from this dual lineage that the first Earl of Warren, or Comte de Guaren or Varrenne, is said to have spru ng. History bears eloquent testimony that he was a worthy recipient of this n ew title, as he served his sovereign nobly at home and abroad.
The first mention of this name in English history is in connection with the Battle of Hastin gs, fought in 1066. In this conflict one of Duke William's most trusted lieut enants was Comte de Guaren, or the 2nd Earl Warren. He must have been in high favor at court, for he later became the husband of Gundred, the daughter of the Conqueror in whose train he had come to England. At Domesday, he received 298 manors as his share of the kingdom for the part played in the victories o f Hastings and Ely and was rated as the richest subject in England. In 1073 he was appointed one of the Grand Judiciaries of England and was created Early o f Surrey by William Rugus in 1088.
Both he and his wife seem to have been of a generous disposition as they gave the money for the establishment, at Lewes i n Sussex County, of one of the most magnificent Priories in England, and assisted liberally the other churches and monasteries in the counties subject to t hem. Their last years were passed in the principal castle at Lewes and they w ere buried in the Chapter House of the Priory which they had endowed. The lin e of nobility thus established existed with distinction until the reign of Edw ard III when the estates and title were surrendered to the crown by John, 8th Earl Warren, who died without male issue in 1347. The King made grants of the lands thus
surrendered but took no notice of the title. In fact it was not until more than a century later that the title was again used, being conferred upon the son of the Duke of Norfolk who was created Earl of Warren and Surrey by Henry VI. As he left no male issue the title reverted to the crown. It wa s not conferred again until 1476, when Richard, Duke of York, son-in-law of th e previous holder, was created by Edward VI Duke of Norfolk and Earl of Warren . He also died without male issue and the earldom became once more unenjoyed. It has not been granted to anyone since and, ..."
