About Ann Lippincott

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 Joseph 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 and Elizabeth Clark 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

Ann was probably born in the 1650s in Boston, in the Massachusetts Bay colony. She married John Lippincott in Monmouth County, New Jersey in 1670 (the same year her sister (?), Margaret married John's older brother, Rememberance). John was the son of Richard Abigail Lippincott. His father had been a "Freeman" of the Massachusetts Bay colony in but the family returned to England in 1652 after Richard was excommunicated from the church. In England he was jailed for religious dissent and thereafter the family returned to the new world about 1663 to Rhode Island. Here John's father joined with other patentees to start the first English colony in New Jersey. They resided on Passequeneiqua Creek, a branch of the South Shrewsbury River, about a mile and a half from the town of Shrewsbury, in what was to become Monmouth County. Here John and Ann Barber farmed. Ann had the following eight children: John – 1671 – m. Sarah Huet Robert – 1673 – dy Preserved – 1675 - m. Elizabeth Williams Mary - 1677 – m. Thomas Hooten Ann – 1680 – m. Joseph Wing Margaret – 1683 – m. John Tilton Robert – 1685 – m. Freelove Lawton Deborah – 1690 Ann died about 1707 and John then passed away on April 16, 1720. Like so many other resting places of the very early colonists, the grave marker and the exact location of this person's remains has been lost after almost three centuries of development and changes of land usage.
