The tract now comprising the towns of Kent and Warren was sold at auction at the court house in Windham, in March, 1738. The settlement commenced the same year. The town of Warren Connecticut was laid out in fifty three shares. The principal settlers were from Colchester, Fairfield and Norwalk. Payne, Washburn, Wright, Ransom and Platt, were from Colchester; the Comstocks were from Fairfield; and the Slausons, Canfields and Bassetts, were from Norwalk.
Warren, CT was incorporated, and vested with town privileges at the session of the Legislature in October, 1739. The first minister was the Rev. Cyrus Marsh, ordained in May, 1741. The settlement of Warren was rapid. In May, when Mr. Marsh was ordained, the church consisted of ten males only; but before the end of the year, there was an addition of fifty three persons, male and female, principally by recommendations froth other churches.
Warren was formerly a part of Kent. Warren was incorporated as a town in 1786. It is bounded N. by Cornwall, E. by Litchfield, S. by Washington, and W. by Kent.
