Early history

Warwick was colonized by Europeans in 1642. Samuel Gorton claimed that Narragansett Nation Sachem Miantonomi sold him the Shawhomett Purchase for 144 fathoms of wampum. Massachusetts Bay Colony continued to lay claim to the area, but it made no further effort to enforce it. Warwick was the scene of the first violent act against the British Crown in the Gaspee Affair in 1772. It was here that the first blood was spilled in the American Revolution when Gaspee's commanding officer Lt. Dudingston was shot and seriously wounded during the struggle for the ship. Warwick militiamen participated in the battles of Montreal, Quebec, Saratoga, Monmouth, and Trenton, and they were present for the British surrender at Yorktown in 1781. The city was named after a town with the same name located in England. In 1648, the name of the settlement was changed from ShawHomett to Warwick. Because of this, the town of Warwick was named in honor of Robert Rich, 2nd Earl of Warwick, Lord Admiral and head of the Parliamentary Commission on Plantation Affairs. In 1772, local patriots boarded the gaspee, a revenue cutter that enforced the Stamp Act 1765 and Townshend Acts in Narraganett Bay. The Gaspee was stripped of all cannons and arms, then burned. The name Warwick was changed to Warwick in 1648 because of this. It is now known as the capital of Rhode Island.
