  1. Do you have any research on this Tripp Family?
    Daniel Jackson Tripp b 20 Feb 1873 CA d 18 Mar 1956 married Maud Jones b 22 Oct 1956 Red Oak,IA d 12 Dec 1956 CA.
    Daniel’s father was Samuel Volturner Tripp b 11 Dec 1828 Allegany Co., NY d 26 Mar 1895 Radec, CA , mother was Carolina Morning Covington b 18 Jun 1846 Grenada, MS d 02 Apr 1925 Radec, CA
    Samuel’s father was Thomas Henry Tripp b 15 Mar 1800 in East Freetown or Freetown Corners, Cortland Co., NY death unknown.
    This Tripp line continues; Thomas Jr, Thomas Sr, William, Job, Peleg and John 1610.

  2. Daughter of Herbert Lloyd Tripp and granddaughter of Edward Herbert Tripp who was married to Theresa Ella Marie Weigand. My Dad was born in Lethbridge, Ontario Canada and spent most of his childhood in Kingsville, Ontario Canada. Edward was born in New York, USA. My Nephew Colin Tripp is also working on the Tripp family history

    • Thanks for checking in, Joanne. Colin contacted us several weeks ago about his research. We are 4th cousins through a different son of Charles Tripp (1761-1844). Ezra Tripp was the most prolific of all of the children of Charles and Jane Woodworth and has many living descendants.

  3. While I agree that John Tripp, Jr. (1610-1678) is the Founder of our U.S. line, I have quite a tree of his antecedents (John Sr. 1581-1629), Nathaniel Alexander Tripp 1549-1614, Reginald Tripp 1523-1580, Henry Edward John Tripp 1500-1560, Nicholas Tripp 1452-1510.
    Am I alone in this? Do we have a better tree going back farther than our beloved Founder?
    Thanks, Cara

    • Cara,

      Take a look at “Some Observations on the Ancestry of John Tripp, Emigrant to Portsmouth, Rhode Island” The Genealogist, 10:2 (Fall 1989) by Neil D. Thompson, Ph. D, F. A. S G. He suggests John the Founder’s line looks like this:

      George Tripp ( – d. 1580) m. Margaret (—)
      — John Tripp (c1550-1614) m. Ellys (—)
      —— John Tripp (1587-1636) m. Isabel Moyses
      ——— John Tripp (1610-1678) m. Mary Paine
      ———— …
      Thompson’s research appears in scholarly peer-reviewed journal and contains citations to all the relationships, places, dates, as well as careful analysis of what he found. His primary sources are English wills and church records and John’s handwritten “revelation.” Unfortunately most of the alternative trees for John’s English ancestor’s are not as rigorous in their citing of evidence.
