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.
