Paper Trail

Elizabeth is said to have been baptized at Baldock, Hertfordshire, England in Sep 1583[1] the daughter of Augustine Walker.[2] Elizabeth married Richard Warren at Great Amwell, Hertfordshire on 14 Apr 1610.[3] Their children were not baptized at Great Amwell (in fact, no baptismal records can be found for any of them) so it is possible the couple joined the Separatists faith and worshipped in secret with some currently unknown congregation.[4] Richard emigrated alone in 1620, and Elizabeth (with her daughters) emigrated in 1623 aboard the Anne.

mtDNA Results H1j

The FTDNA Mayflower Project documents four mtDNA descendants of Elizabeth (Walker) Warren. All four have been assigned to the H1j haplogroup with the following HVR (Hyper Variable Regions aka Control Regions) mutations (from the RSRS): A16129G, T16187C, C16189T, T16223C, G16230A, T16278C, C16311T and G73A, C146T, C152T, C195T, A247G, 522.1A, 522.2C, 309.1C, 315.1C. According to Haplogroup.org the H1j haplogroup originated roughly 7,500 years ago, so it is a VERY ancient clade. Most H1j individuals would not be mtDNA descendants of Elizabeth, but all mtDNA descendants of Elizabeth must fall under H1j.[1]


Thus mtDNA testing cannot solely be used to conclusively prove someone was a mtDNA descendant of Elizabeth (Walker) Warren, but it can be used to conclusively disprove such a relationship. In addition, mtDNA testing can be used to support a conclusion about a line being descended from Elizabeth, but additional evidence is also needed.


  1. It is possible some of her mtDNA descendants may have picked up an additional mutation or two, which includes the possibility of a back mutation.
