Peleg TRIPP was born in 1642 in Portsmouth, Newport County, Rhode Island. He died on 13 Jan 1714 in Portsmouth, Newport County, Rhode Island. He was christened. References: Randall, Peleg manuscript from the New Bedford Library; Breffni Wheland, decendant who made many contributions to John and their offspring; Peleg Tripp was child number 2 of John Tripp the Founder.

Herman William Tripp--Remembering----Grandpa Peleg The following is typed verbatim from Valentine Research Studio, of Washington D.C., written by Caroline Valentine, and published in 1932. Page 67. The year before the death (1677) of John Tripp the Founder, Peleg, the second son of John the Founder, appears on the town Council, at the age of 35. In the October meeting of this year, his brother, Joseph, was chosen "to bee of the jury for the Court of Tryalls". Peleg was at once placed on a committee, and set at work for the Colony. In 1678, Peleg, Will Wodell and Jacob Mott are on the town Council. At this time, Abiel, next younger, is admitted to be a Freeman of Portsmouth. The Tripp Boys are coming on. A special Town Meeting in December puts the town in touch with the General Assembly. The town has been "warned" to meet, "to here the Acts and Orders of the Court of Generall Assembly (held in October last) read, and also to make a rate of sixty eight pounds." "This, by the said court was ordered for this Towne of Portsmouth to pay, as their part and share of A Colony Rate of three hundred pounds, etc." Joseph and six others were to handle this assessment and to deliver their report "within one moneth next after the date of this meeting, unto the magestrate of this Towne, for him to take care of and to give for this warrant to the Towne Serjeant for the warning of all persons concerned to pay their parts. Rated according to court order". In January, Peleg was placed on a committee even more important. Its duty was to audit and adjudge all accounts pending between Newport and Portsmouth, "Relating and only growing by Reason of the late Indian wars". This Committee was also "to dispose of Indians for this Town's use according to the General Assembly's order". It appears that immediately on John Tripp's death, his son Peleg was chosen to fill his place. For, it was in December 1679 that Peleg was first sent as deputy to the next General Assembly, Like his father, he was held also to his work on the Town Coucil. This was feasible, because the Assembly sessions were very short. Twice, in 1680, Peleg was selected as deputy; as also once in 1681; and again June, 1683. In 1681 Peleg and Will Wodell helped work out the rates or assessments; the same two were on the 1884 committee. In this year, Peleg took his father's place as overseer of the Poor. By September of this year, "Major Peleg and others had procured a writing as "A confirmation or Enlargement of the Estate or Right of this Island with Intention of good to both Towns on the Island, and all the Freeholders therein". It was proposed (probably by Newport that Portsmouth should appoint a committee "to inspect the Said writing and to consult and advise with the procurers therof, how the Estate therin and therby procured may best be Conveyed to the Town in Generall." The public life of Peleg Tripp seems to have been more important than that of his father. The records indicate that he served his generation in the company of the strong men of his own and the other towns of the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence plantations, and gave added strenth to the Asssembly. A practical surveyor, he was ordered by the assembly to run the westerly line in 1680, when acting as Deputy for Portsmouth; this work to be done in conjuncion with Captain John Albro. "And the charges", says the report with definiteness", shall both to themselves and such as they shall employ in that worke, shall be trully borne and paid by the Generall Treasury of this Collony. And they are to begin and proceed in the premises, with what speed may bee, and make a true returne of what they doe therein, unto the next Generall assembly". It was formally voted also: "That the Recorder doe forthwith transcribe the acts of this Assembly for running the Westerly line of his Collony, and affix the seale of the Collony thereto, and deliver the same unto Captain John Albro and Mr. Peleg Tripp, or either of them". No sooner was the Assembly in session in March, 1680, than an immediate, serious and unexpected situation caused grave concern to the deputies. On the tenth of the month, at the initial session the Governor was chosen moderator. Apparently, the one mater disposed of before adjournment was the appointment of a committee "to bee assistant to the governor--to considerr of and to draw up an answer to the twenty-seven queries sent from the Lord of His Majesty's most Honorable Privy Council, to this Collony, and return what they draw up to this Assembly for their consideration and approbation". This committee of Governor's Assistants numbered seventeen Deputies, including the Deputy Governor, Mr. Peleg Tripp, Captain John Greene, and Captain John Foanes. Governor Cranston, however, was soon to be beyond the need of assistants. On the very next day the records show him "By God's Providence, soe visitted with sickness that he is detained from the Assembly". Matters "of greate concerne to this Collony, for which the Assembly was called, that are of necessity to be resolved by the Assembly" demanding immediate attention, the Deputy Govenor was appointed interim Moderator. After a four day interval, that is on the fifteenth of March, "The Assembly called and satt". Its one order of business was to vote adjournment for the day in order to attend the funeral of Governor John Cranston. But the business of the Assembly was pressing. On the next day, therfore, Major Peleg Sanford was "chosen Governor and engaged in open Assembly." After the new governor was duly chosen moderator, it was voted: "The Deputy Governor, Captain Arthur Fenner, Mr. John Coggeshall, Captain Randall Howlden, Mr. Peleg Tripp and John Sanford are chosen a Committee to goe to Mrs. Mary Cranston, widow of our late deceased, honored Governor Cranston, esquire, for the charter and all other writeings belonging to the Collony, that were in the late Governor Cranston's custody, and have power to give the said Mrs. Cranston a full discharge in behalfe of this Assembly for what they receive; who are to returne the same to this assembly forwith". At the expiration of the "forthwith" period, it was voted that the Committee, having returned to the Assembly the charter and other articles, "this Assembly have received them; and they are in this present assembly delivered to the present Governor's custody". This gets them, formally, out of the Assembly's care. On the twenty-ninth of June, 1686, Mr. Peleg Tripp again sitting in the Asssembly for the town of Portsmouth (with Mr. John Coggeshall, Mr. William Wodell and Mr. Robert Hodgson) the Assembly considered a writ of "Quo Warranto" from His Majesty. "This Assembly" the records say, "upon the serious consideration of the above said premise, do hereby order, publish and declare that they have determined not to stand suit with His Majesty, but to proceed by our humble address to his Majesty to continue our privileges and liberties according to our charter, formerly granted by his late Majesty, Charles the Second, of blessed memory." Whereupon the assembly orderd that this act should be published "forthwith" in three "convenient places for that end", in Newport, "and the same to be done by the Recorder, with the Generall and Town Sergeant, and the beat of the drum". Later, it was voted: "That a Committee be chosen and empowered by this Assembly, they or the major part of them, on this Collony's behalf, to draw up our humble address to his Majesty our Sovereign Lord, the King, and to take speedy and effectual care for the safe conveyance thereof by way of Boston and York. And also to procure a messenger as soon as they can, to go for "England; and to draw up letters to the Governor of York, to President Dudley, and to Esquire Randolph." The persons chosen and empowered are: "our Honored Governor and Deputy Governor, for Newport; Mr. Joseph Jencks, for Providence; Mr. peleg Tripp and the Recorder, for Portsmouth; Major John Green, for Warwick." The importance of the subject matter and the standing of the other members of the Committee, with the added fact that Peleg Tripp was chosen when John Coggeshall was available, are an earnest of the esteem and confidence reposed in Peleg Tripp, the second son of John of Portsmouth. Born near 1642, at Portsmouth, Peleg early bought from his father one-fourth of the tract which John had from John Alden. Thus, he became also "of Dartmouth", on the eighth of September, 1665. In some way, the vital records of his immediate descendants were destroyed, so that we must depend chiefly for these upon his will, made in 1713, and proved February 8, 1714 Peleg married Anne Sisson, who brought him nine children. His will names first his son Job. In order, follow Priscilla Tripp; Sara Rogers; Peleg Tripp; Daughter in-law Sara Tripp; daughters Mary Smith, Anne Rogers and Mehitable Thurston; son Richard, who with Anne Rogers received land in Portsmouth. Anne, the widow, received the dwelling house and one third "of great orchard for life and my garden and L18 yearly for life paid by my son Job." This favored son received "rest of land where I dwell, he paying rents and legacies and at death of wife he to have other land", etc. Fourteen acres of land were added to the orchard provision for the widow, Anne. Richard, too, was to pay Anne L5 yearly tax on his Dartmouth legacy. The daughter-in-law, Sarah, named in Peleg's will was of Adam Mott's family, her mother having been at marriage Mary Lott, whom the first Adam Mott brought from England, when he came to America. Mary (Lott) Mott's interesting will appears elsewhere. She was Adam's step-daughter. That Good government was coming to be a part of the daily task of John Tripp's sons, as the years passed, their records attest. The Tripps, being "Gentlemen", of course married, at first, strictly within their class. The Founder, although a carpenter, must have had means, as the English idea of a "Gentleman" included also the possession of sufficient money to live as befitted his social position. The ancestral wills too, show the possession of many estates. Peleg's descendants took over an entire County almost, very early and later produced a candidate for the Presidency of the United States, Warren G. Harding, elected twice to that office. Moreover, a son of the first Tripp- Harding alliance married back into the Tripp blood; Bock: (Austin 208; Randall, James Tripp 5-7). Herman William Tripp--Remembering----7th Great Grandfather Peleg He was married to Ann SISSON in 1666.
Peleg Tripp's will was made in 1713 and proved 8 Feb 1714. He was a deputy at Portsmouth. The line of descent from Peleg Tripp and Ann Sisson to Warren Gamaliel Harding, 29th President of the United States, is as follows:
