About Restore Lippincott

Restore Lippincott, was the third son of Richard Lippincott, the ancestor of the Lippincotts in America. From John Clement's first settlers in Newton Township we find that Richard emigrated from Devonshirem England, and that the family was one of the oldest in England. It has been traced authentically back to the Domeday Book, complied in the days of the Conqueror.

Richard settled first in Boston, where he was made a freeholder in 1640. He afterwards moved to Dorchester and thence to England, where in 1653 his son Restore was born. In1669 he move from Plymouth, England, to Shrewsbury, New Jersey. He was the largest shareholder in the company that colonized on Shrewsbury River, and became an active officer of the colony. Restore Lippincott, His son, married Hannah Shattock of Boston in 1674 and removed to Northampton Township, Burlington County, where he becme a wealthy and influential man. In 1703 and 1705 he became a member of the Governor's council of West Jersey. John Clement says of him: "He was a useful citizen exemplary in all the relations of life, and much respected by the community on account of his regard for truth and justice."

Restore's children were Samuel, Abigail, Hannah, Hope, Restore, James, Elizabeth, Jacob, and Rachael. Several Shinn descendants married Lippincott descendants, so that there are few of the Shinn family in America without some admixture of Lippincott Blood.

Restore Lippincott was the third son born to the English emigrant, Richard Lippincott and his wife, Abigail (maiden name not substantiated). Restore was born on the third day of the fifth month of 1653. His father, Richard, had previously emmigrated to the new world and been made a "Freeman" of the Massachusetts Bay colony by the General Court of Boston in May of 1640. The family resided in the nearby Dorchester settlement but 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 there jailed for religious dissent. The growing 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. Restore grew to manhood and was joined in marriage to Hannah Shattuck on November 6, 1674. He farmed and held several public offices. He was a representative to the West Jersey Assembly and later to the Assembly of the now united colony of New Jersey. He was a lifelong member of the Society of Friends. He and Hannah had the following nine children: Samuel – 1675 - m. Ann Hulet Abigail – 1677 – m. James Shinn Hannah – 1679 - d. unmarried Hope - 1681 – m. Wm. Gladding Rebecca – 1684 – m. Josiah Gaskill James – 1687 – m. Anna Eves Elizabeth – 1690 – m. George Shinn Jacob – 1692 – m. Mary Burr Rachel – 1695 – m. Zechariah Jess Hannah Shattuck Lippincott died before 1729 and Restore then married Martha Shinn, widow of Joshua Owen in 1729. Restore then passed away on July 20, 1741. At his funeral it was noted he had upwards of two hundred children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, many of whom were present at the service. Like so many other resting places of the very early colonists, the marker for this person's mortal remains has been lost or decayed away after almost three centuries of time and weather.
