History

It was in 1942 when the Europeans colonized Warwick. The land was bought by Samuel Gorton from Narragansett Nation Sachem Miantonomi. However, it was a suspicious transaction since Miantonomi did not seek the approval of Sachems Sacononoco and Pumham. The case was taken to Boston and the land was placed under Massachusetts rule. A militia force was then sent by the Massachusetts Bay Colony to arrest Gorton. Three of Gorton’s followers surrendered to the Massachusetts forces after the standoff. Because of this incident, the other colonies on Narragansett Bay united and obtained a British royal charter. As a result, they created the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. A British charter was granted by Robert Rich, 2nd Earl of Warwick in 1948. Because of this, Gorton decided to change the name of the area from Shawhomett to Warwick. Although the Massachusetts Bay Colony wanted to claim the settlement, they have not made any effort to pursue it further. In 1772, a violent act against the British Crown took place in Warwick and it was known as the Gaspee Affair.
