Captain Richard Warfield emigrated from Berkshire, England, and settled, in 1662, west of Crownsville, Anne Arundel County, Maryland. His estate reached back to 'Round Bay on the Severn'. The Rent Rolls show that he held during his life, 'Wayfield,' 'Warfield's Right,' 'Hope,' 'Increase,' 'Warfield's Plains,' 'Warfield's Forest,' 'Warfield's Addition,' 'Brandy,' and 'Warfield's Range.' In 1689, then a captain, Richard Warfield signed as a military officer the address to King William. Mr. Warfield was returned as first vestryman of St. Ann's (also spelled St. Anne) Church, Annapolis, in 1696. He began the first westward movement of the early settlements to the unexplored frontier of Howard County, in his old age. He was born in 1640 and died in 1703-4, leaving an intelligent will, which named his seven children as heirs. He married, in 1670, Elinor Browne, heiress and daughter of Captain John Browne, of London, England, a direct descendant of Sir John Browne. Upon an original will at Annapolis is the stamp of the stork. Burke says their crest is a stork. Burke traces the Le Brune name, which is fiftieth on the Battle Abbey Roll, to Sir Stephen, oldest son of Hugh, one of the Lords of Wales. His wife, Eva, sister of Griffith, Prince of Wales. His descendants were Sir John, of Essex, and Thomas Browne, of London, from whom decended Thomas Browne, heir, and Captain John Browne, second son, of London. Elinor (Browne) Warfield inherited from her father Captain John Browne, 'Hope,' and 'Increase.''
Richard married Elinor Browne, daughter of Captain John Browne of London and Unknown, in 1670.
