About Ann Lippincott (Barber)
The parents of Margaret and Ann Barber are unknown despite what you may see on the web. The question of parentage has been asked for more than 100 years and no primary sources have turned up. Attached to "Documents" is a query in the Genealogical Section of The Boston Transcript. In it the reader posits that the parents must be named John and Elizabeth because Remembrance and Margaret named their two firstborn (twins) by those names. Their next boy and girl are named after their paternal grandparents. Because the first two children die in infancy, the names John and Elizabeth are given again in the family.
The Lippincott/Barber marriages could have taken place in 1665 in Rhode Island where the Lippincotts were living, or later in New Jersey. The families were living in Monmouth, New Jersey in 1666. Quaker meetings were held in the home of Richard and Abigail Lippincott in the early years before a meeting house was built. Quaker and New Jersey records for this period are scanty.
Although there are church records for the Lippincott family in Boston and Dorchester when they were officially Puritans, there are no records for Barbers in these towns during the period in question. George Barbour of Dedham could not be their father as he was not a Quaker, and the births of his children are all recorded and he did not have children by these names. In the 1660's Quakers were being hung in Boston. Torrey's New England Marriages Prior to 1700 does not list a John and Elizabeth Barber. However, during this time period couples were not required to register their marriages with a government entity and few Quaker records exist for this period. They also could have been married in England. Therefore, where Margaret and Ann Barber were born, and who their parents were and where they were married, may never be learned. -rj
