John Lippincott was the third child and second son born to English emigrant, Richard Lippincott and his wife Abigail (maiden name not substantiated). John was probably born in the eighth month of 1644 as he was baptized on the 6th day of the ninth month of 1644. His father, Richard, had been made a "Freeman" of the Massachusetts Bay colony by the General Court of Boston in May of 1640. The family had resided in the nearby Dorchester settlement at the time of John's birth were located in Boston. They returned in 1652 to Stone House, Plymouth, Devonshire, England after Richard was excommunicated from the church. In England he became a follower of the teachings of George Fox, founder of the Society of Friends and was jailed for religious dissent. The family again immigrated to the new world, perhaps in 1663 to live in the tolerant colony of Rhode Island led by the Baptist founder Roger Williams. Here the family prospered and in 1665 joined with other patentees to start the first English colony in New Jersey. The family 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 grew to manhood and was joined in marriage to Ann Barber about 1670. He farmed and was a landowner. He and 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 Barber Lippincott died about 1707 and John then married Jennett Mill, widow of William Austin. They had no children. John then passed away on April 16, 1720. Like so many other resting places of the very early colonists, the exact location of this person's remains has been lost after almost three centuries of development and changes of land usage.
