Misc. Notes
John TRIPP was born on 6 Feb 1610 in Northumberland, England. He died on 28 Oct 1678 in Port smouth, Newport Co. RI. George L. Randall has written that he saw a document which appeared t o be a copy of John's own statement about his origins: " viz., I John Tripp, b. Northumberlan d Co., Eng., Son of John and Isabel (Moses) of Lincolnshire: b. 1610; was apprenticed to th e house carpentry trade, and with his Master, Randall Holden, came to Newport or Portsmouth , in 1630; after completing his time he married Mary Paine, dau. of Anthony, and had 11 child ren -- the paper ends by naming the first child." Mr. Randall does not disclose the whereabou ts of this important document, nor does he explain the reason for its change from first to th ird person. He emigrated in 1635 from Canterbury area of co. Kent, England. (2) Another sourc e finds the family roots here and that John Tripp came on the same ship as William Hall and t hat his name appears in 1638 on the Aquidneck Group Covenant with the heads of eleven other f amilies with whom the Tripps were to intermarry. He participated in a Special Event occurre d when he signed the Compact of Portsmouth with twenty-eight others. on 30 Apr 1639 in Portsm outh, Rhode Island.(3) He participated in a Special Event occured when he signed a covenant f or human love and liberty in Dec 1647 in Portsmouth, Rhode Island.(4) He died in 1677/78 in P ortsmouth, Rhode Island. He was also known as Tripp, Trip and Trippe..(5) Nowadays the fina l "e" has been largely dropped and the name is almost entirely always spelled with a double " p". Most of the New England Tripps appear to be descended from John Tripp, an immigrant to Po rtsmouth, Rhode Island, many of whose descendants professed the Quaker faith. He was marrie d to Mary TRIPP (PAINE) (daughter of Anthony PAINE and Unknown first wife PAINE) about 1639 i n Portsmouth, Rhode Island. (6) The will of Anthony Paine, dated May 6, 1649 and proved the f ollowing year makes specific reference to his daughter Mary Tripp. Parents: John TRIPP an d Isabel MOSES . He was married to Mary PAINE in 1638 in Newport, Newport Co. RI. He was divorced from Mary P AINE.
