General Notes (Husband)

I. Lineage beginning with John Tripp: The name of Tripp supposedly began with Lord Howard a t t h e siege of Boulogne. Henry the Fifth asked how the y too k t he town and castle, and Howard answered, "I tripp ed th e wal ls". Then his Majesty said, "Tripp" shall be th y nam e and n o longer Howard, and he honored him with a sc alin g ladder f or a coat of arms. This information found i n DOO MSDAY BOO K IN TITLE LANDS OF ENGLAND.
This family record begins with John Tripp, who was b o r n in Skirbeck, England, and married Isabel Moses, who w a s b orn in 1575 in Northumberland, England. It has been m en tion ed that his father was Nathaniel Tripp, who was bor n i n 154 9 in Skirbeck, Lincolnshire, England. Mr and Mr s Joh n Trip p lived in Lincolnshire, Northumberland County , Engl and. Al though John Jr. Tripp - b. 1610 Mentions Abo ut twel ve child ren in his family, we only have a record o f Two ch ildre n - John & Ann.


General Notes for Child John Tripp The Founder

The first Tripp to come to America is the ances t o r of so many that someone appropriately tagged him " The Founder ". By hi s o w n hand, he wrote that he had 11 brothers and sisters, so he evidently did not h a v e much to start with. For that reason he indentured himself to experienced peo p l e so that he could learn the carpenter trade. He was admitted as an inhabit a n t of the island of Aquidneck, (Later Rhode Island), and on April 30, 1638 si g n ed a compact with twenty-eight others as follows: "We whose names are under w r itten do acknowledge ourselves the legal subjects of His Majesty king Charle s , a nd in his name do hereby bind ourselves into a civil body politic, unto h i s l aws according to matters of justice".
Records show that he accumulated land in Dartmou t h , (that he purchased from John Alden), land in Narragansett, land in Westerl y a n d land on Hog Island. This island got its name from the fact, that all of the h o g s that were not controlled by their owners by fences or buildings, were h a u led over and turned loose on Hog Island! I don't know what John did with th e m , when he started farming the island! I guess this was the first Tripp t o r a ise pigs in this country!
John Tripp was active in several aspects of the g o v ernment, including Commissioner. He was Deputy for the following years:
1648,1654,1655,1658,1661,1662,1663,1664,1666,1667, 1 6 68,1669, and 1672. He left in his will various lands, buildings plus orchar d s , and fencing.
John Tripp married Mary Paine in 1639 and durin g t h e next 21 years had, and then reared eleven children. From the New Bedford Mas s a chusetts Library we have secured records for first generation of all the chil d r en and subsequent years for John Tripp Junior, Peleg Tripp, Joseph Tripp, A b i el Tripp, James Tripp, and Sylvanus Tripp. Together with additional infor m a tion about Abiel Tripp from Warren Forrest Tripp, of Wheatridge Colorad o a n d Paul Tripp of Pennsylvania who recently moved to Provo Utah.

There is a Tripp house located in Scranton Pennsylvania t h a t was evidently built by Isaac Tripp's son Isaac Tripp. The house is purp o r ted to be built on and around the original log house built in 1778. That w a s t he year that Grandpa Isaac was killed by the Indians with nine spear s p u t through him! The though, is that records from this house indicate that J o h n Tripp the Founder set sail on June 10th 1635, on the ship named Tru e L ove, to come to this country.
Herman William Tripp--R e m embering John Tripp, Gentleman, Pioneer, At Work by Caroline Valentine writing in the Valentine Research S t u dio, in Washington D.C., published in 1932.

Verbatim:
As the centuries have wheeled into the past, fi v e h undred men, or possibly a thousand, have answered to the unassuming na m e , John Tripp. It may be supposed that none of these ever once dreamed, that f r o m him should come a man to sit on the American throne. Yet this honor cam e t o J ohn the Founder, in prospect, and in very fact to one of his descendants.
All that we find recorded of him shows that Joh n T r ippe of Portsmouth did his daily task with his might, looking for the Ligh t , a nd in the fear of God as He was conceived by them of the Friends' persuasion.
As plain country squire, at many points in old En g l and; as lawyer; as physician; as clergyman of the established, stereotyped s o r t; as colonial deputy; as Mayor and representatime of his King, John Tr i p p was always "John Tripp, Gentleman".
Manifesting in multifarious forms, he played alw a y s an estimable part, and no records of John Tripp show that he was ever less t h a n an honorable man, strictly "on the job" that fell to him in his then sphere.
But the very formal term, John Tripp, Gentleman , f o und in the old records, was brought over from England, even as was Joh n h i mself. The line back into the mists of the conquror's time is so long, t h a t no one may now tell how many John Tripps trod English soil. The family n a m e was certainly John, and a common custom of giving the names of the foun d e r of the family, and of the father and grandfather to the elder sons in ever y f a mily, held for untold generations among the Tripps.
Ancient deeds long held by English Tripps, ev e n i n west England, testify to the family grip on the soil throughout many ce n t uries. English genealogists seem to agree that Canterury was the pla c e o f inception as far as history shows, and one of the stanard English Genealogi c a l firms informs us that no Tripp family there known can be traced to any b u t t he one root in Kent. It is of record that a Tripp of 1325 held right to a co a t o f arms; but the date of its conferment is missing.
Sir Charles Tripp, who bore it, was a well-know n l a wyer of the Middle Temple, London, whose arms are both shown and describe d . H e was son of that English John Trippe, Gentleman, who lived both in the six e e nth and the seventeenth centuries. His father (and probably he, himse l f ) saw life as it was keenly lived in France as well as in England. For the fat h e r, according to the English heralds, was John Trippe, Vice-Marshal of Calais.
A very gorgeous John Tripp, Gentleman, in crims o n a nd gold, executed the city ordinances of Hull, as its Mayor, in 1669. we fin d h i m under the heading "John Tripp, 1660" in a most quaint old English book of n o t ables who had been schoolmates in Lincolne county or elsewhere. The styl e i s o ften humorous, but the English owe the author a great debt for historical it e m s lacking elsewhere. This John was Chamberlain; then Sheriff; then Mayor of Hu l l , 1669.
John Tripp, Gentleman, Pioneer At Work
John the Founder's appearance in Portsmouth, w a s i n 1638; in Providence, under date of May 16, 1648. He had come over in the sam e s h ip with William Hall in 1635. His name appears on the organization list of Por t s mouth as John Trippe.
On this list appeared the names of eleven famil i e s with whom the Tripps were to intermarry. One of these was that of Antho n i e Paine, John's father in law; another, that of William Haule (Hall), th r e e of whose children became "in laws" to John Tripp, later. Thus, the foundi n g o f Portsmouth seems rather a family affair.
The remnant of the earliest records of Portsmou t h n ow available contains no less than 80 references to John Tripp, the Founder o f t h e New England line of English Tripps. The indexers agree that the spellings Tr i p , Tripe, and Tripp belong also to the family of Trippe.
In 1649, we find John serving on a jury; as al s o i n 1650, 1653, etc. By this time, three fourths the recorded names are of thos e r e lated, or to be related by marriage to the first John Tripp, and to ass i s t in carrying on his family line.
In 1651, he is clerk of "the wayghts and measure s " . In the same year he makes an agreement with Ralph Earle concerning a line fen c e . This precise paper fills one and one half pages of the records, as printe d . I t was signed in the presence of four witnesses, one of whom was Benedict Arno l d . The meat of it was that each signer should play fair with the other, as to r e c iprocity on stones and in the work of building the stone fence; a chief obj e c t being to "make there sayed landes several to each of their private uses."
John was between two fires, in that Ralph Earl' s l a nd joined him on both the north and the south sides. One point of the agre e m ent read thus: "From yeare to yeare, so long as those sayd lots ly open togeth e r , Earl's to Tripp's aforenamed, that they will not on either of these said l o t s damnify each other by Cattell there put by their order." This agreement wa s c o nsidered so important that the heirs of both signers are included i n i t s terms, and a forfeit of twenty pounds sterlng is laid on the failur e ; t o be "payed by the Ptie defective, unto the other Ptie engaged therein". For m a l seals completed the document, when signed.
It was a wise move to block trouble with boundi n g n eighbors. I can recall, as grandchild of New York pioneers six generati o n s later, the threats of law-suits and the loud words following the neglect of fen c e s, which led to raids by neighbors' cattle, on growing grain.
Having served his town freely and well whenever n e e ded, John Tripp came to the honor of being chosen Committeeman for the Gener a l l Court. This was an important term, for this committee was authorized to me e t w ith those of the other towns, "at the day Nuport neighbors shall apoint, w i t h as full power to act as if the towne were present."
The same "Meetinge of the Inhabitants of Portsmou t h " that chose John Tripp as representative, voted also, "that Assamequin sh a l l have his coate payed him forthwith for his rent of the medows on the ma i n e land, on the north side of Roade Ilande".
In 1655, John Tripp was chosen "commissioner o f t h e Colony, to transact the business of the Generall Court to be held at Provide n c e at the usuall tyme". He here appears as "Mr. John Tripp." Serving wit h h i m were John Roome, John Briggs, Thomas Lauton and Mr. Thomas Brownell.
Portsmouth, by this time, was becoming importan t . E ven among this goodly people, thieves were abroad, it seems; who, if t h e y could but remove cattle from the island, could then snap their fingers a t a l l authority. The ferries became increasingly important. Thus, in Augus t o f t he year 1666, the town meeting appointed John Tripp, his son in law's fath e r , William Hall and two others "to survaie and view all cattell that shall be hen c e forth transported off the Iland and to take the names of all such as transp o r t cattell, the day of the month when, the number of the Generall Cattel, with t h e re severall ear marks and if any have cattel that have not their own ea r e m arke or that have other markes than ther owen the survayers are hereby requ i r ed to make stopp of them, unless thay give satisfaction to the survayer s h o w they cam by those Cattel, so differently marked. and the survayeers are t o s e e the Cattell boated and if any carry cattell off the Land in the night, tho u g h survayed before, shall have a survayer to see them at ther going of sho r e o r shall forfeit tenn pounds and stand to further sensuer of the toune".
Serving frequetly on the Town Council, John was c h o sen also in 1661, with five others, to serve as a "Court of Comitioners " a t P ortsmouth. The following year he was chosen to serve on the next Gener a l c ourt of Commissioners to be held at Warwick.
The report of the town meeting for February, 16 6 3 n otes that four "Comitioners or deputyes" were chosen to serve at a Gene r a l Court to be held at Newport. Of these, was Mr. John Tripp. Another was h i s b rother in law Mr. Lott Stange; who had married Alice Paine, sister to Joh n T r ipp's wife Mary.
In the meantime, John's family is increasing an d m a turing. The year 1666 sees John appear on the records as "Mr. John Tripp s e n ior". he serves this year on the Grand Jury. A new duty--of Rate making is l a i d upon him in 1666. He is chosen for the Grand Jury (with two others). He is ke p t , as in most years, in the post of Surveyor of Cattle, and is again chosen dep u t y to the General Assembly. In 1667, the town chooses him to serve, with Al b r o, Cooke, Aly, William Hall and Sanford, to devise a method of prevent i n g "the destruction of wood and timber of this township" and some method of redr e s s for the town.
In June of 1667, John Tripp is once more chos e n a s one of the four Portsmouth "deputies for ye next Generall Court, as depu t y . In 1669, he serves again in the General Assembly, held at Newport in May o f t h at year. In 1672 he serves in the April Assembly, and also in that of October.
John Tripp, the Founder, is now aging. He has b u t s ix more years in which to prove his value. But during these years he is al l o wed no surcease of work. In this year of 1672, he becomes moderator of the P o r tsmouth meeting; to which office he is chosen each year therafter up to and i n c luding 1675. As rate maker; as surveyor of cattle; as keen eyed representati v e o f his town in many capacities, he does his unhurried and faithful duty. As m o d erator, he is hampered by rules hitherto unknown to the presiding offic e r s; since, in the last previous meeting, the town council voted that for the fut u r e, "noe Towne meetinge shall have power to act in affaires Relating e t o t he Towne Except there be at least the number of fifteene prescent at th e S a id meeting. And further ordered that for the future, noe Moderator of t h e T owne Meeting Shall presume to desolve Such Said Meeting without the Major v o t e of the said Meetinge. And if any Moderator shall from the meeting wit h d raw himself, without the leave of the major part of the meeting, it shal l b e i n the power of that meetinge to elect another to the place of Moderator."
In 1675, Mr. John Tripp was chosen by the town co u n cil for three several offices besides that of moderator. One of thes e w a s that of prover and sealer of weights and measures, "accordinge as the la w o f t his Collony hath provided." in 1676, 1677 and 1678 he is still filling imp o r tant town offices. This last year sees his last appearance on the records.
In April of the year 1679, "the widow Mary Trip p " r eceives from the Town Council" a License for one year to Sell Victuals a n d d rink to Travelers and to afford them entertainment as may bee needful and C o n veient, they first giveing bond according to law for the keeping of good or d e r and do also pay into the Treasury ten Shillings for each License".
So far as the records indicate, the public wo r k o f John Tripp was never spectacular; but these were sober-minded men, and the s a m e might be said of almost any man of record at Portsmouth during this peri o d . this John was most surely a man of keen mind and great personal integrity , f o r his name comes into prominence in every essential matter, and wherever mon e y i s the crux of the situation, except in connection with the Treasury. But Wi l l iam Wodell was long the Treasurer for the town of Portsmouth. he was a l s o many times a deputy from Portsmouth.
As, at this period, every priviledge that high au t h ority could offer was for members of the established church, the church of Engl a n d, and that every indignity and tax that could be conceived was visited u p o n non-members, under many of the colonial governments, we may imagine how mu c h n eed the quiet group of Friends had of the stiff neck which was supposed t o b e t heir crowning attribute.
The "Sufferings", at one period, any Friend ca m e t o be ranked very high in the estimation of his Order. John Simcock, clos e f r iend and valued counselor of William Penn, was a notable "sufferer"; no r d i d the least conspicuous escape his tax of scorn and obloquy, anguis h a n d financial loss. Costly, indeed, was it to "follow The Light", in their time.
In 1658, Roger Williams wrote: "It was not pric e n o r money that could have purchased Rhode Island. Rhode Island was obtai n e d by love; by the love and favor which that honorale gentleman, Sir Henry V a n e, and myself, had with that great Sachem, Miantonomie".
Nine years after John Tripp signed the Aquidnec k g r oup covenant, he set his name to a marvelous politico-human document in Provid e n ce. its basis and tenor were human love and human liberty. It, too, was a c o v enant, its purpose being to place upon record: "That we are not willfully op p o site, nor careless and senceless, and therby meanes of our own and others' r u i ne and destruction. And especiallly in Testimonye of our fidelitye and Cordi a l l affections unto one another heere present, so that there may be a currant, pe a c eable and Comfortble proceedinge."
John, Peleg and Joseph Tripp, Citizens
At the time when the first John appeared in the G e n erall Court. Mr. Roger Williams was chosen to be assistant. This Assembl y w a s called by the Islanders the "Generall Court of Election". It was then o r d ered that six men should be chosen for each town, in whom the General Cou r t s hould be continued. Also that the Generall Court of Tryall should be held " b y c ourse", wherever the actions should arise, and at such times as the committe e s h ould choose. This seems suplementary to the previous work of the General As s e mbly.
On this committee appeared the names of Weeden, l a w ton, Almy, Briggs, Wilbor and Green: into whose families the descendants o f J o hn Tripp were soon to marry.

According to George L. Randall in his book: Geneal o g y of Descendants of JOHN TRIPP, JR. Mr. Randall says John landed at Newport, Rhode Island , i n 1 630 or 1635. He came to America as an apprentice wi th M aste r Randall Holden, who was from Salisbury, Wiltshi re, E nglan d. He went to Portsmouth in 1638 and was a sig ner o f the R hode Island compact on 30 April 1639.

Mr. John Austin wrote tha t on 27 Oct ober 1649 Jo hn and his wife Mary gave receip t to Rose Weed on, widow o f Anthony Paine, for legacy fro m the will of th e latter. O n 6 February 1660, John testif ied his Uncle Rob ert Potter s old a certain house and lan d to John Anthony p er Mr. John A ustin's THE GENEALOGICA L DICTIONARY OF RHOD E ISLAND, page s 160 and 208, and ALLI ED FAMILIES, page 249 . This is als o mentioned in THE RHOD E ISLAND GENEALOGICA L REGISTER, volu me 3, No. 1, pages 23 -26.

The Commission confirmed the lan d t o Mar y on 8 December 1666. According to a deposition m ad e by Wil liam Collings in 1666, the lot was above the to w n ferry.

Receipt was now given for sam e by Elizab eth to b oth her uncle Peleg and Benjamin and M ary Engell.

From another researcher on the internet: 2. John TRIP P w a s born about 1610 in England.(1) George L. Randall ha s wr it ten that he saw a document which appeared to be a c opy o f J ohn's own statement about his origins: " viz. , I John T ripp , b. Northumberland Co., Eng., Son of Joh n and Isabe l (Mose s) of Lincolnshire: b. 1610; was appren ticed to th e house c arpentry trade, and with his Master , Randall Hold en, came t o Newport or Portsmouth, in 1630 ; after completi ng his tim e he married Mary Paine, dau. o f Anthony, and ha d 11 childr en -- the paper ends by namin g the first child. " Mr. Randal l does not disclose the whe reabouts of this im portant docum ent, nor does he explai n the reason for its c hange from fir st to third person. H e emigrated in 1635 fro m Canterbury ar ea of co. Kent, Eng land. (2) Another sourc e finds the famil y roots here an d that John Tripp came o n the same ship as W illiam Hall a nd that his name appear s in 1638 on the Aquidn eck Group C ovenant with the heads o f eleven other familie s with who m the Tripps were to inter marry. He Special Even t occurre d when he signed the Compac t of Portsmouth with tw enty-ei ght others. on 30 Apr 1639 i n Portsmouth, Rhode Isla nd. ( 3) He Special Event occured w hen he signed a covenan t fo r human love and liberty in De c 1647 in Portsmouth, Rho d e Island. (4) He died in 1677/7 8 in Portsmouth, Rhode Isl a nd. He was also known as Tripp , Trip and Trippe.. (5) No wad ays the final "e" has been la rgely dropped and the nam e i s almost entirely always spell ed with a double "p". Mo st o f the New England Tripps appea r to be descended fro m John T ripp, an immigrant to Portsmo uth, Rhode Island, m any of who se descendants professed th e Quaker faith. He was married to Mary TRIPP (PAINE) (daughter of Antho n y P AINE and Unknown first wife PAINE) about 1639 in Port sm outh , Rhode Island.(6) The will of Anthony Paine, date d Ma y 6 , 1649 and proved the following year makes specifi c ref eren ce to his daughter Mary Tripp. John TRIPP and Ma ry TRI PP (P AINE) had the following children:

+3 i. P597 +4 ii. P568 +5 iii. P598 6 iv. Mary WODELL (TRIPP) (WODELL) (GATCHELL) was born ab o u t 1646 in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. 7 v.
