Richard Lippincott
Birth: Jul. 15, 1613
Devon, England
Death: Nov. 25, 1683
Shrewsbury (Long Branch)
Monmouth County
New Jersey, USA

Son of Anthony & Margaret Weare Lippincott. Married Abigail Goody on 10 May 1640 in Roxbury, Suffolk, MA

Richard Lippincott came to the new world from Stone House, a parish in Devonshire, England and was among settlers of the Massachusetts Bay colony where he was made a "freeman" in 1640 He and his wife, Abigail, resided in Dorchester where their eldest son, Remembrance was born the next year. After a move to Boston their son, John, was born. A daughter, Abigail, was born there but died in infancy. On the records of the First Church of Boston, we find "Richard Lippincott…falling in a withdrawing from Communion with ye Church, was admonished - 1651." Richard had "demanded a ground of his so walking" and was "excommunicated from ye fellowship of ye church." In 1652 he returned to England where a third son, Restore, was born at Plymouth, Devonshire. Richard was imprisoned in the jail near the Castle of Exeter in 1655 for testifying "against the acts of the Mayor." In the same year his son Freedom was born. His daughter, Increase, was born in 1657, and his son Jacob in 1660, while residing at Stone House, near Plymouth.
The colony of Rhode Island offered freedom for the exercise of the Friends' mode of worship. Richard Lippincott again removed to New England. Having been preserved from the wrath of the persecutor and the perils of the sea, he named his next son Preserved who was born in America on Christmas Day, 1663. The names of the surviving children of Richard and Abigail form the words of a prayer, which needed only the addition of a son, Israel, to have been complete - Remember John, Restore Freedom, Increase Jacob and Preserve (Israel).
In 1665, Richard and his family moved from Rhode Island to near the Shrewsbury River in East Jersey. Richard thus became a member of the first English colony in New Jersey. His residence was on Passequeneiqua Creek, a branch of the South Shrewsbury River, about a mile and a half from the town of Shrewsbury. He lived here for the last eighteen years of his life.
