Christopher Childs, has posted where his personal opinion (based on the fact it is known Richard Warren married Elizabeth Walker at Great Amwell, Hertfordshire, England in 1610) is that the Mayflower passenger may have been identical to the Richard Warren baptized at the Abbey of St. Albans, Hertfordshire on 12 Apr 1585, son of William Warren.
Another possible baptism of the Mayflower Passenger is abstracted at: FreeReg.org.UK for a Richard Warren bp St. Peter, Cornhill, London on 15 Jan 1579/80 son of John Warren, armiger. Given the fact Richard Warren was said to have been a London merchant, this baptism merits a closer look.
The proven origin and ancestry of Richard Warren has not yet been discovered. The first known record for Richard is his marriage to Elizabeth Walker at Great Amwell, Hertfordshire, England on 14 Apr 1610. Richard was called "of London" He was called "Mr." and it has been said he was one of the "principal men who had borne a deep share in the difficulties and troubles of first settling the plantation."

The inventory of his estate was taken 21 Oct 1667 and his will & inventory were "exhibited" in court on 30 Oct 1667. Nathaniel & Sarah had twelve children: Richard, Jabez (never married), Sarah, Hope, Jane, Elizabeth, Alice, Mercy, Mary, Nathaniel (left no surviving children), John (no children and likely never married) & James

DNA Results E-FTC19215
Previous Y-DNA testing
The Mayflower DNA Project has two individuals who have Y-DNA tested predicted to fall under E-M35.The Nevgen Y-DNA Haplogroup Predictor gave a 1007% prediction to fall under E1b1b1a1b1a E-M35>V68>M78>PF2179>Z1919>L618>V13. Both these individuals descend from Cornelius6 Fuller (Samuel5, Samuel4, Richard3, Nathaniel2, Richard1).
Both of the individuals above have taken a Big Y-700 test. The results indicate they under: E-V13>CTS8814>CTS5856>BY4877>BY3880>FTT49>Z5018>S2979>Z16659>L241>Z21362>FGC76265>Z21365>Z21367>FTB75291>FTC19215
Further testing needed
Ideally, we would like a descendant of Joseph2 Warren to take a Y-DNA test to verify the line all the way back to Pilgrim Richard Warrn.
- They also exhibit a "null" DYS425 Y-STR result, which can be seen in the Y-67 Y-STR tests.
- An old paper published in the Journal of Genetic Genealogy stated E-V13 was a Balkan Haplogroup, and its presence in England was likely due to Roman soldiers (from the Balkans) settling in the area after their military service.
