Some busy body Informed the membership that James Shinn and Abigail Lippincott had declared their intention to marry without coming before the meeting. A committee was appointed at once to speak to John Shinn and his good wife, Jane: Restore Lippincott and his good wife, Hannah: and the obstreperous young people, James Shinn and his fiance, Abigail Lippincott. This incident caused a great amount of talk throughout the community and led the committee to probe the matte to the bottom. On the 5th of the 2nd month, 1697, the church was doubtless crowded to hear the results. The committee reported that the young people were determined to marry, but not having their parents' consent they cold not pass meeting. Old John Shinn and Old Restore Lippincott walked out under a stately beech and began a discussion of the question. Their wives soon joined them, and in a short time peace was restored and parental consent accorded. On the same day James and Abigail declared their intention to marry before the assembled multitude and were applauded by the younger element who were in attendance. One month later they appeared the second time and were set at liberty by the church. The marriage occurred shortly afterwards at the home of Restore Lippincott in the presence of a large assembly of the First People of the Community.

Shortly after the wedding John Shinn conveyed to James one hundred and twenty one acres of land in what is now Nottingham Township and the young people set themselves up. The same year James bought lands of John Butcher and in 1705 was made the sole legatee of the estate of his brother, Francis. In 1709, he purchased lands of John Gadwood and in May, 1712, his father-in-law, Restore Lippincott, conveyed him two hundred and twenty three acres in Nottingham Township. He afterwards became seized of large bodies of land in New Hanover Township and in Ocean County.
