Warrine Spelling Variations
Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations

, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Waring, Wareing, Waringe, Wearing and others.

Migration of the Warrine family to the New World and Oceana
Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlantic. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Warrine or a variant listed above: Nathanial Waring and his wife who settled in Maryland in 1699; Richard Waring settled in Barbados in 1654; John Warin settled in New England
in 1662; C. M. Waring arrived in Baltimore Maryland in 1823..
