Infant Abigail was the third child and first daughter of Richard Lippincott, who came from Stone House, Devonshire, England. He was among the settlers of the Massachusetts Bay colony and was made a "freeman" in 1640. He and his wife, Abigail (maiden name unsubstantiated), first resided in Dorchester where their eldest son was born. After a move to Boston another son was born. This child, 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." He took his small family and returned to Plymouth, Devonshire in 1652 where became a member of the Society of Friends. He was imprisoned for testifying "against the acts of the Mayor."
The colony of Rhode Island offered freedom for the exercise of the Friends' mode of worship and the Lippincotts again removed to New England. In 1665 the family again moved to near the Shrewsbury River in East Jersey on Passequeneiqua Creek, a branch of the South Shrewsbury River, about a mile and a half from the town of Shrewsbury.
Like so many other resting places of the very early colonists, the marker for this child's mortal remains has been lost or decayed away after almost four centuries of time and weather.
