Abigail Lippincott, the wife of James, was a great attraction whether considered from the standpoint of birth or wealth. Her father, 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.
