Excerpt from National Year Book, 1902: National Society Sons of the American Revolution

Edwin Warfield, son of Albert Gallatin Warfield and Margaret Gassaway (Watkins) Warfield, was born at "Oakdale," Howard County, Md., May 7, 1848. Richard Warfield, the immigrant and progenitor of the Warfield family in America, came to Maryland in 1662 from Berkshire, England. The Warfields were prominent in Colonial affairs, and participated in the patriotic movements which led up to the Revolution and the independence of the Colonies.

The subject of this sketch has descent from many other noted immigrants who settled in Maryland prior to 1700. Among them were Colonel Nicholas Greenberry, "Keeper of the Seal" and Acting Governor under Copley, 1692; Captain John Worthington, Member of "The Quorum," Member of the House of Burgesses, and Captain of Severn Militia; Colonel Nicholas Gassaway, Member of the Upper House of Lord Baltimore's Council and Deputy Governor; Colonel Henry Ridgely, Justice of the Provincial Court, Member of Lower House, Captain of "The Foote;" Matthew Howard, who was of the Norfolk Howards; John Bowies, Sr. progenitor of the Bowie family in Maryland; William Griffith, immigrant ancestor of the Girffiths of Mayland; Captain Thomas Claggett, Captain of British Navy; Major-General John Hammond, Justice of Provincial Court, 1667, Member of the Council, 1698, Member of the Court of Admiralty; Major John Welsh, Member of The Quorum, 1671, High Sheriff of A. A. Co., 1676-1678; Colonel Edward Dorsey, Judge of High Court of Chancery, 1695, Member of House of Burgesses, and others. He has double descent from a majority of these immigrant ancestors.

Edwin Warfield's great-grandfather, Benjamin Warfield, was commissioned Captain of the Elkridge Militia in 1778. His mothers father, Colonel Gassaway Watkins, was a distinguished Revolutionary soldier, who served seven years and nine months in the "Old Maryland Line." He entered the army at Long Island in January, 1776, as Sergeant, and was mustered out at the close of the war in 1783 with the rank of Captain. He was in nearly every hard-fought battle of the war.
