Jacob Lippincott was the fifth son born to the emigrant, Richard Lippincott and his wife, Abigail (maiden name not substantiated). Jacob's father, Richard, had previously emigrated 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 Richard became a follower of the teachings of George Fox, founder of the Society of Friends and was there jailed for religious dissent. Jacob was born during this time of unrest and religious turmoil around the Lippincott family.
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.
Jacob grew to manhood and was joined in marriage to Grace Woolley about 1680. He farmed near to the rest of his family and was a member of the Society of Friends.
He and Grace had the following children:
Jacob – b. 1686 - d. 1687
Ruth – b. 1688 d. 1689
Job – b. 1689 - d. 1689
Jacob Lippincott also died in 1689. Grace then married John Test. After his death she married John Bacon. Her date of death and resting place is not known.
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 three + centuries of time and weather.
