THOMAS TRIPP and MARY JOBSON (8)

 

THOMAS TRIPP. We know from his gravestone that Thomas was 68 when he died in 1769. This gives him a birth date of 1700-1. There are two possible baptisms:

Barton on Humber. 1700/1 Feb 16. Thomas son of William Tripp, labourer.

Horkstow. 1701 April 13. Thomas son of Fran : and Jane Tripp .

Barton on Humber is 3 miles east of South Ferriby, where Thomas brought up his children. Horkstow is less than 2 miles south. Either of these baptisms is plausible, but since Thomas named two of his children Francis and Jane it is highly probable that the second is the right one.

 

Horkstow is one of the five Low Villages which lie between Brigg and the Humber. South Ferriby is another. They lie below the northern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds.

The IGI has a marriage which would fit very well.

Marriage. South Ferriby.

1731 Nov 14 Thomas Tripp and Mary Jobson.

Mary would have been six months pregnant at the time of the marriage, but in those days this was not too uncommon.
