There is considerable info on this Waring Line, so, let's start with Peter Waring and go back some generations with some data.
I believe the line goes back to Walter De St. Martin of Normandy, France born 925 AD and further back than that - the ancient origin being somewhere in Germany near the Baltic (Varangian) Sea.

6. John Waring (1736-17FEB1809 age 73) is born to John Waring and Catherine Tuttle (Tuthill). Lived first on the estate of his grandfather, Edmund Waring. Afterward, in 1750 with his brothers Thaddeus and Samuel, settled in Dutchess (now Putnam) County, NY. Enlisted in the Revotionary War among the Dutchess County militia and fought for the regiment of Col. John Field. On his tombstone is "Lieutenant" John Waring showing that he must have attained that rank. General Washington once during the war remained for a time at his house. Owned a farm of two hundred acres at Southeast, Putnam County, which was worked by his slaves. He was a liberal subscriber and prime mover, being on the committee, to hurry the building of the First Presbyterian Church at Southeast.His first wife was Joanna Smith (1736-1779) of Norwalk, CT and their children were: 1) Elizabeth (1759-1848) (Jesse Field); 2) Susanna (1761-1837) (1.Jonathan Smith, 2.Hesekiah Dyckman); 3) Ruth (1763-1830) (Peter Crosby); 4) Ruhamah (?

Williams). John Waring's second wife was Mary Elwell (1757?-13DEC1839 age 89?) dau. of Isaac Elwell and their children were: 1) Peter (1781/2-1849) (Esther Crosby) (1787-1831); 2) Isaac (1783-1865) (Cynthia Crosby; 3) Mary or Polly (1792-1883) (George Gregory); and 4) Charles (1822) (1.Abigail Howes, 2.Phoebe Loder).
7. John Waring (21DEC1704-176?) is born to Edmund Waring and Elizabeth Bouton. Lived on the estate of his father. Several of his sons were among the pioneers of that part of Duchess County now called Putnam County, New York. He was one of the founders of the Congregational Church at Darien, CT, 1744. John Waring married Catherine Tuttle dau. of David Tuttle and Mary Reed (dau. of John Reed and Ann Derby)) and had children: John, Thaddeus, Abraham, James, Hannah, Stephen, Samuel, Catherine, Martha, Esther, Mary, Rebecca.
8. Edmund Waring (1673 - 5AUG1749) is born at Brookhaven or Oyster Bay to Richard Waring. He married 6OCT1698 Elizabeth Bouton (1681 - 1760), born in Oyster Bay, daughter of John (Jean) Bouton of Norwalk, CT, a Huguenot, born in France 1615, came to Boston in 1635 embarking from Gravesend, England on the ship Assurance, died at Norwalk 1704 and (1)Abigail Marvin (dau. of Matthew Marvin). John Bouton married third 1JAN1673 Mary Stevenson. Edmund Waring removed from Huntington, L.I. to Norwalk in 1703 and on the last day of winter 1706-7 bargained with the father of Gov. Thomas Finch for a large tract of land as center-remote perhaps as Saugatuck, but which formed a portion of the eligible height once ruled by the Sachem Runckingheage, and since known by the name of "Roton (Rhoten) Hill" on Five Mile River. He resided in that part of the town now called Rowayton. His home was on top of Roton Hill. He also owned extensive tracts of land in Berkshire County, MA. Both he and his son, Edmund, Jr. were large subscribers to St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Norwalk, founded in 1737; of which church he was among the first vestrymen. He built a stone pier still in existence in the harbor of Norwalk, which leads to the inference that he was engaged in mercantile pursuits, probably a lumber merchant, as he made large purchases of timber land. At his death at the age of 76, he was survived by his entire family, wife, eight sons, and "four loving daughters", to whom he bequeathed a considerable landed estate. The ancient tombstones of Edmund and his wife were found at Norwalk, CT, in 1862. Edmund Waring had children, mostly born on Long Island: 1) Edmund, Junior (16SEP1700), 2) Isaac (13JUN1702), 3)John (21DEC1704-176?) (Katherine Tuttle), 4) Solomon (24APR1707), 5) Mary (22DEC1708) (Henry Henman), 6) Nathan (6FEB1710-11), 7) Jacob (15JAN1712-13-176?) (Mary Selleck (1717-1802), 8) Michael (16JUL1715-) (1.Elizabeth Scofield, 2.Sarah Holly), 9) Eliakim (8JUL1717-5AUG1779) (Anne Reed), 10) Elizabeth (8MAR1719-20) (Edward Nash), 11) Abigail (19APR1723) (Samuel Richards, Jr.), 12) Hannah born in Norwalk,CT (7SEP1725) (James Richards).
9. Richard Waring (son of Christopher Waring and Alice Webb). He with his son Richard, Junior, both Presbyterians, and a number of other persons, emigrated, in 1664, on the ship Endeavor, from southern England (it is beleived, from Liverpool) to Boston, the entire party settling the next year at Brookhaven, Long Island, on land bought by them from the Setauket tribe of Indians, for which purchase a patent of confirmation was obtained March 7, 1666. In 1685-1686 he was tenant of a 100 acres from James Lloyd, of the Manor of Queen's Village, Long Island; later, owned land at Huntington, Long Island. His name, and that of his descendants, is variously spelled on deeds, on monuments, etc., Waren, Warren, Waron, Warrier, Warin, Wearing, Warring, Waring. Richard Waring had children Richard, Junior, Michael, and Edmund (Elizabeth Bouton).
