LIPPINCOTT LINEAGE: #2. Richard marries Abigail GOODY - they come to New England in 1639 from Plymouth, Devonshire, England

Richard and wife Abigail settled in Dorchester, Massachusetts. The family later moved to Boston where they were excommunicated from the First Church [of England] for inclining toward Quaker beliefs.

In 1652, the family returned to England hoping to escape persecution as Quakers under the Puritans in New England. However, they encountered even more severe suffering when they refused to swear allegiance to Oliver Cromwell's Commonwealth government. In 1660, Richard was taken to prison along with other Friends and it was not until 1663 that King Charles granted permission for the Lippincotts and othe rFriends to return to the new World where they settled for a while in Rhode Island.

In 1665, a patent was granted to Friends for land in what is now New Jersey (West Jersey), and Richard became the largest share holder in the new colony. His home was near the present town of Shrewsbury. He was an active officer of the colony, a deputy to Governor Carteret's first assembly in 1668, and overseer of Shrewsbury for 2 years. He died in his home near Shrewsbury, New Jersey 25 Nov 1683. His will names Abigail and sons Freedom and Jacob. Abigail died 2 Jun 1697 in Monmouth County, New Jersey
