Remembrance Lippincott was the first child born to the English emigrant, Richard Lippincott and his wife, Abigail (maiden name not substantiated). Remembrance was probably born in the sixth month of 1641 as he was baptized on the 19th day of the seventh month of 1641. His father, Richard, had 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 Remembrance's father 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 jailed for religious dissent. The 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.
Remembrance grew to manhood and in about 1670 was joined in marriage to Margaret Barber. He farmed and held several public offices. He became a minister of the Society of Friends and was clerk of the Monthly and Quarterly Meetings of Shrewsbury. He and Margaret had the following twelve children:

Joseph and Elizabeth 1670 (twins died young)
Abigail 1673 dy
Richard 1675/6 - m. Mary White
Elizabeth - 1677 m. Joseph Parker
Joseph 1680 m. Elizabeth White
William 1682 m. Hannah Wilber
Abigail 1685 m. Peter White
Sarah 1688 m. John Williams
Ruth 1692 m. William Woolley
Mary 1693 m. ___ Morris
Grace 1695 - dy

Remembrance passed away on April 11, 1722/3 and Margaret joined him in eternal rest after 1722. Like so many other resting places of the very early colonists, the exact location and marker of this person's remains has been lost after almost four centuries of development and changes of land usage.
