    • Notes: 
    • There are many family trees on the web where the argument is made that the parents of Augustine were Thomas Warner of Hoveton and Norwich, England, and his wife Elizabeth Sotherton. Those that cite a source, cite an article by Mary McCurdy in The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Vol. 81, No. 3 (July 1973) as the source of this information. In that article, Mrs. McCurdy states that she has no clue as to the parents of Augustine. Lacking anyone else, she picked Thomas and Elizabeth as good possibilities because they were in the right location at the right time. But she has no evidence to confirm it. She herself states "I have accordingly been looking at the most obvious sources to see if any Norfolk sources have a clue to his parentage, but I find none, though there is ... [a] family of Norwich, which I should much like him to come from." She then goes on to publish ancestor charts for both Thomas Warner and Elizabeth Sotherton with Augustine in them but uses a dotted line for the connection.
