  1. The genealogy Isaac Bell is based on the works of John O’Hart and Charles H. Browning. Both attribute the parentage of Nathaniel Warren to Oliver Warren. However, Oliver died in 1724 and Nathaniel wasn’t born until 1737. So this is clearly in error. Nathaniel Warren was actually the son of Richard Warren of Stillorgan. The genealogy from Nathaniel Warren down to Isaac Bell is accurate. I am a direct descendant of Nathaniel Warren from his daughter Eleanor Warren Crean.
