HISTORY OF THE WARNE NAME (Source www.surnamedb.com)
surname is of English locational origin from either Wearne in Somerset
or Warne in Marytavy, Devonshire. Wearne is
recorded as "Warne" in the Domesday Book of 1086, and was originally
the name of the stream of the place. The name means "alder stream"
and is derived from the British (the extinct Celtic language of the ancient
Britons) "verno" or the Welsh "gwern" meaning alders. Warne
is recorded as "Wagefen" in the 1194 Pipe Rolls of Devonshire and is
composed of the Old English pre 7th Century elements
"wagen" meaning quaking plus "fen" a fen marsh; hence
"quaking fen". The surname is first found in the latter half of the
13th Century, (see below). One, John Warne, appears in the Subsidy
Rolls of Wiltshire (1524). In the modern idiom the surname hasmany variant
