Subject: Pippin Family
Our immigrant ancestor was John Pippen who was baptized in Bruton Parish, Somersetshire, England on 13 Sep 1702. His parents were John and Elizabeth Phippin. He was convicted of theft and larceny in Jul 1718 in the Summer Asize Court and sentenced to be transported to the Virginia Colony for a period of seven years. He was transported in the ship Sophia, Captain John Law was ship's master and disembarked in Queen Anne’s County, MD in March 1719.
I do not know why he was disembarked in Maryland vice Virginia. It appears that his master during the seven years was Richard Moore. A convict's labor was sold for the period of years for which he was transported. However, the Maryland Colony did not keep a record of the labor sales and masters as did some colonies.
John's will names a wife Rebecca, a daughter, Rebecca Emory and five sons, Joseph Robert, John, Solomon and Benjamin. Robert remained in Maryland and died in Caroline County. Joseph, John, Solomon and Benjamin migrated to Halifax, Martin and Edgecombe Counties of North Carolina, Benjamin moved on into Darlington County, SC.
Solomon and his wife Amy are your ancestors. Solomon died in Edgecombe County, during February 1798. His will was entered into probate on 24 February 1798.
His son Abraham, your ancestor, moved into Sumter County, SC. He was there when the 1810 Census was taken. Abraham did not leave a very big footprint and his fate is unknown to me. It appears that he was twice married. The name of his first wife is not known. It appears that his second wife's Christian name was Sarah.
They might have had children Noah, Needham, Fanny and George. Sarah appears in the 1860 Census Russell County, AL, age 87 living alone.
The above is a brief sketch of your genealogy. I suggest that you purchase from Emily L. Pippin a copy of JOHN PIPPEN A NEW BEGINNING IN MARYLAND. It is documented, indexed and contains 603 pages of our mutual family history. It starts with the life and times of John Pippen and covers the next five generations of his descendants. It covers the family through the Civil War and up to 1900. Emily's e-mail address is <email@example.com>.
I do not have any information for Fanny and Benjamin other than their marriage. I would appreciate any information you can provide for their family and descendants.
