In 1861, a 31 year old 'proprietor of houses', living at 82 Patrick Street, Milton, Gravesend, Kent with his 68 year old widowed mother Charlotte E., and siblings Mary S. 29 and Charlotte Louisa 27 and in 1871 they were living at Keith Terrace, Lee, Kent when he is described as 'artist'. His mother died later that year and the following year he married at Mitcham, Surrey, Euphemia Mary Gibbons (1828-27 February 1902). A nineteenth-century landscape painter known predominantly for his small sketch-like landscape paintings and in 1881 a 52 year old artist living at 5 North Place, Brighton, Sussex with his 53 year old wife Euphemia. He exhibited seven paintings at the British Institution and in January 1886, Christie’s held a four-day sale of the collections of ‘W. W. Warren Esq. of 21 Suffolk Street, Pall Mall’ which included paintings, porcelain and metalwork. Among the list of paintings to be sold were a number of Warren’s own works, mostly of Mediterranean subjects, and Simeon Solomon’s 'The Mystery of Faith' (1870). According to the sale catalogue the intention of the auction was to produce enough funds for Warren, who was suffering from ill health, to spend more time in clement climates abroad. In 1887 he exhibited at the Bury St Edmund's Fine Art Club, a watercolour 'Bye-Way at Horringer', although the Club was for local artists, but any residency in the area has not yet been discovered. In 1891, Warren and his wife were living at Fulham Road, Fulham, London together with his unmarried sister Mary. His wife died at Fulham on 27 February 1902 and William White Warren died at Downham Market, Norfolk in 1910, aged 79.
