About The Book: The town of Warren is located in Knox County in the State of Maine being nine miles west of the shire town of Rockland. The region was settled by Ulster Scots originally from Northern Ireland, of the Protestant religion. Many of these Scots had come to New England following a famine in Ireland and the resulting migration in 1719. Many were already living in Pemaquid which is where they drew lots for their respective farms, arriving in Warren in the summer of 1736. This area was part of what was first known as the Muscongus Patent and later the Waldo Patent and was called “the Upper Town of St Geroge’s.” The town of Warren was incorporated 7 November 1776. Warren was located in the county of Lincoln until the year 1860 when the county of Knox was named for Gen. Henry Knox and incorporated.
This book contains a verbatim transcription of all the vital records for the town of Warren prior to the year 1892, except for marriage intentions and marriage records which were transcribed to the year 1938.
Also included in this book are records taken from Bibles in possession of the Warren Historical Society.
